Miss Hell From Texas
What is your craft?
Making jewelry out of doll house accessories, revamping furniture, snazzing up eyeglasses, stenciling, making purses, doing things with animal bones, I do a lot more but I will keep this list short.
Why do you craft?
I have always done crafts, I can remember ripping up my osh kosh begoshes and trying to make them into stuff when I was like 5 years old, and my mom beating my ass, they were all ugly and all turned out atrociously slutty for a kiddo but it was the beginning of a beautiful friendship, I craft now for the same reason as before because Im bored and stores donâ€™t make what I want.
What are your sources of inspiration?
My first source of inspiration would have to be horror movies, Im obsessed so my crafts reflect that, second my husband whos a seriously sick individual he gives me a lot of gross ideas, also my son because I want him to be the coolest baby on the block. I'm also inspired by music, especially punk and classic country, old school tattoos, mid century modern designs, comics of course, run on sentences, and drug addicts.
What is your favorite beverage?
My favorite beverage is shiner bock beer and sierra Nevada porter Im a beer snob sometimes, but Ill also will drink a vintage 211, box wine, or old E
Where do you buy your favorite beverage?
H.E.B central market grocery stores and whole foods.
How did you come up with your business name?
N/A Ive never got around to setting up my etsy now that I have a 5 month old squirming all over the place, but soon I hope.
What is your weapon of choice?
Id probably be an accountant I think if I hadnt been day dreaming in school so much about things I could make later at home, I would have done a lot better in school, Id be bored I'm sure, without crafts whatâ€™s the point of living.
What would you be doing otherwise?
Id probably be an accountant I think if I hadnt been day dreaming in school so much about things I could make later at home, I would have done a lot better in school, Id be bored Im sure, without crafts whats the point of living.
Do you have any advice for other crafters?
If at first your crafts suck try and try again, and dont do it so that you can be good at something, or to impress someone, do it because its fun, also I keep a notebook to jot all my ideas down in so when I thinkof a good idea when I'm drunk or on the spur of the moment I donâ€™t forget it later. Also if you need further inspiration check out http://bitchessewstitches.proboards.com. Craft the motha up!
Any final last words?
The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. I try to think about that while crafting.
