One day while I was experimenting with a new die cutting machine I purchased, I decided to make a vinyl decal for my mixer describing two things I like to do: cook and craft. I like to do all kinds of crafting: loom knitting, making vinyl decals, making fun graphic and relevant t-shirts, party decorations and more.
Cooking is something I enjoy as well. I like to try new things and take them to work. Most times my coworkers appreciate them, though they are skeptical of the healthy food sometimes. They were not a fan of the chia seed water I brought to work and refused to taste it.
The RN part of my name refers to my livelihood. I love what I do and am happy I made the decision to pursue nursing as a second career. That being said, nursing can be a stressful job, and it’s even more important for me to still make time for my hobbies.
I’ve made people things for years at no cost to them because I liked doing it and improving my skills, but after so many people telling me I should sell some of the things I make, I decided to do it and Crafty Mixtress with a Side of RN was born. That’s kind of a long name, so you’ll mostly see me refer to myself and my site as Crafty Mixtress.
I’m happy I started Crafty Mixtress and hope that you’ll be happy with my offerings too. If you’d like something custom made that you don’t see, please just let me know, and I’ll see what we can come up with.
Take care and happy shopping!
