YOU CAN'T BUY HAPPINESS, BUT YOU CAN BUY HANDMADE, AND THAT'S KIND OF THE SAME THING!
I'm Mary! Owner, blogger, and artist behind My Crafting Attic.
I've been crafting in one form or another since childhood. I would spend the hot Jersey summers in the basement with my Mom working on crafts to sell at our annual holiday craft show. It was there that I grew a passion for crafting and the joy something handmade could bring to others.
I went on to spend my college years balancing psychology and art to complete a BA in Art Therapy. I spent my days learning the techniques of different mediums and the evenings practicing them in the art building until the wee hours of the morning. It was there that I learned to appreciate the healing power of art.
When I became a SAHM in 2011 I wanted something that was my own outside of motherhood. I first created My Crafting Attic as a DIY blog to inspire and encourage others to find their crafty side. A few years ago I decided to go back to my roots and opened up an online shop taking custom orders for gifts and home décor. I love the journey that it has taken me on and am excited to see what happens next!
