Tell me about how you originally got into your craft, mikaela.
my mom is a crafty lady. she crochets like I've never seen anyone crochet before. she makes everything from scratch. she taught me to be adventurous. i have always loved crafting. from a very young age i was making my own jewelry and altering my clothing. i just love to make things with my hands. it keeps my mind occupied.

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
look through free boxes. . . i love finding treasures that need a second chance.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your shop?
juggling my job, a toddler , making time for crafts and keeping myself inspired. it takes a lot of effort. . .and coffee.

What item in your shop would you most like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
i love loooong earrings but i cant wear them...my daughter will yank them out.

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
i seriously wanted to be an assassin when i was little. i watched the professional and was really inspired in a way that i think i wasn't meant to be. i thought it would be cool to wear all black and travel the world hunting bad guys.

What other shops or artists out there do you love?

What does your future hold?
hopefully fashion school and a house. . .with a garden....and shiny treasures!
