Well, I accomplished my one weekend goal - to set up this and this!! It's been in the works for a while now. My new blog and etsy shoppe using my real name and everything. I don't know why I've had such an aversion to using my name. I guess I've always liked anonymity and I've been a hider since I was a kid. When the doorbell rings....hide. When I see someone at the mall I know...hide.
Anyways, Phil has been urging me to use my name as my label for a long time. He did the awesome design for me and I am so excited to unveil it. I've also been selling all my stuff at EPS with this new label for a while.
I guess now that I am ending this blog, I should finally explain the origin of it's name. Crafty is self explanitory, but Champloo is taken from one of my favorite anime series,
Samurai Champloo. Champloo (or chanpuruu) is an Okinawan word meaning a mix of things or like a gumbo of sorts. The anime series has all the classic Samurai elements mixed with modern, urban, hip-hop themes. I always felt like my interests were so varied and all over the place when it came to crafting. So there you have it - Crafty Champloo.
Anyways, I thank you in advance for following me here!
