I am first and foremost a crafter :D I enjoy all types of crafts and have many more I am wanting to learn. I have been crafting pretty much from the day I could hold a pencil. I have always made gifts instead of bought as I enjoyed putting my â™¥ into each piece. In 2004 I started getting requests to make items for others to gift and that is when The Crazy Little Crafter was born (also known as Crafted by Sally) Along with my little shop I have taught adult and kids craft classes at Michaels and as a contracted instructor Japan.
