Carina's Crafts: Carina Rego PROFILE

I'm really proud to post this post.

Carina Rego is my friend; we've been buddies since we were 12.

This very talented woman has been creating birthday cards and notes and crafting up all sorts of wonderful things for decades! I'd give a simple store-bought card for birthdays; Carina would create something with a theme, and fancy fonts, and hand-stitched craftiness, stitched on with love.

All of us have encouraged her to keep creating, reach for the stars, but it's not like she needed any convincing… and Carina's Crafts was born.

I asked her why she loves to create and how it makes her feel.

"I love seeing something that I have pictured or created in my head come to life. I love making for others. I love teaching and sharing crafty knowledge," says Carina.

"I feel happy, at ease, relaxed when creating craft. I feel like I need to craft everyday, whether it's 'researching' on Pinterest, coming up with new ideas or projects or actual production, it's kinda my oxygen."

And Brother Australia agree.

Here is the announcement from Brother Australia about a huge comp they were running:
