Every Monday I’m featuring other great Etsy sellers and blogs that I love. This week it’s Cintia and her blog My Poppet!
I think my favourite blog posts on My Poppet are some of upcycling ones, such as creating a tote bag from an 80s leather jacket, and a doll’s house from a suitcase. Here’s Cintia to tell you a little about her bright, colourful, crafty blog…
Describe your blog in one or two sentences.
Your weekly dose of crafty inspiration, one DIY craft, sewing or upcycle tutorial a week.
What made you decide to start a blog?
My blog started a long time ago to promote my handmade business, it has evolved to become a craft DIY blog as my interests have changed. Now I prefer to share how to make things rather than sell things I make.
Where do you get your inspiration?
I get inspired by the materials around me, I collect and thrift vintage textiles, and also by necessity. The projects I enjoy making most are the ones I have a need for. Making with a purpose is very important to me.
What has been the highlight of working on your blog so far?
There hasn’t been one thing but I love how my blog has challenged me to try new things and learn new skills. I’ve made so many friends through blogging, some of the funnest people I know are bloggers. Also it’s been great to be able to work from home and earn a part time income from blogging.
What do you like to do when not working on your blog?
I only write one blog post a week, the rest of the time I’m wrangling a 4yo and just doing mum stuff. I also love to travel, but can only get away once or twice a year.
What is coming up in future posts?
You tell me! I’m never organised enough to plan more than one project in advance.
Thanks Cintia! Please check out My Poppet for a wealth of crafty inspiration!
Thanks for reading!
