Mandy is in her
late mid-twenties and hates craft.
This is mostly due to the fact that she sucks at any and all crafts, and most attempts end in a rage filled blur of glue and wool. And that’s when she’s trying to colour.
She started out as a promising art student in 2005 and later completed her abandoned Fine Arts degree. Mandy bitterly has thrown away the artist lifestyle, claiming that the digital age ruined any kind of artistic merit in what was her medium of choice.
Having since been replaced by grainy camera phones and instagram filters, Mandy now spends her focus on science (okay, social science. Because lets not even talk about maths) and health as an academic. She also spends a lot of her free time doing (or thinking about doing) various forms of dance*.
After some time of feeling the void of creativity in her life, she begrudgingly decided to try her hand at a few different kinds of crafts to try to “find one she enjoys”. This has not been a successful venture.
As a result, Mandy has decided to write about her failures (and day we say, successes? No. Probably not those.) of “easy to do crafting”. Follow her misdemeanors, tantrums and fire hazards as she navigates her way through tutorials, instructions and demonstrations of various kinds of crafts, cussing her way down the bitter pathway of creativity.
*she’s not very good at that either.
