Featured blog – My Poppet

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.
