Here's a close up of the display shelf...
Although it's quite obvious, I still had to as Heather to tell me about her favorite craft tool/material:
"This is easy........the zipper! I love hunting for zippers. I love seeing what the possible oldest zipper I can get is. I also love seeing all the deals I can get on someone's unwanted zippers."
And, Heather makes good use of ALL parts of the zipper!
We are SOOOO excited that she is allowing us to debut her newest zipper creation HERE on the Flint Handmade blog...
She has a whole box of vintage costume jewelry that she would like to work with in the future. I asked her what other projects she wanted to work on:
We took a trip back upstairs and Heather posed for a photo with her laptop, since she often online on Etsy. She posts her goods there and also interacts with other crafters often on the forums, which she believes is a very imporant business practice.
Finally, I asked Heather how she got into crafting:
"I believe that I was born to craft, it is in my blood. I can't remember a time I wasn't trying to be creative. It's just what I do!"
Well, we at Flint Handmade thinks Heather does what she was born to do VERY well and we are excited to have one of her vintage zipper creations for our giveaway!
