Meet the Maker is a new series of features highlighting some of the most amazing makers across the North Shore! We will be featuring a handful of new makers every Monday to hopefully help mitigate the added financial strain that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the creative community. Follow along on Instagram and Facebook as well!

What inspires or speaks to your creative process?
I love to unwind and relax with creating fun, new, and exciting projects for my home, and I love to get my hands messy and work through the creative process.
Has the COVID-19 pandemic affected your business?
Yes, we expect to lose about $10,000 over the next month.
What measures are you taking to reduce lost revenue?
We are working with a tightly reduced workforce and we have pivoted our business a model to offer “Door Dash Crafts” where we deliver the craft project to you at home!
Any advice on what could help in this troubling and challenging time?
Support local business by buying gift cards, social promoting, and creating brand awareness
Just because you are stuck at home doesn’t mean you and the family can’t create!
