Fabulous Friday... The Interview ~ LoobyCrafts

Misi crafter of the week... Louise from Looby Crafts.
Welcome, let's learn a little bit about Louise.

How did you get started in your particular craft and how long have you been doing it?

5 years ago my OH suggested we make our own Christmas cards, so we trundled off to Hobbycraft, bought some stuff and settled down at the dining table. Well he made 1 card and was bored, where as I was completely hooked and sat there all day! It’s just grown from there really – one small box of stuff to a whole room full!

Are there any negative aspects to doing your craft and if there are how do you work around them?

Not really, the biggest thing is having so many ideas in my head and not enough time to get them all done – so I make myself lots of lists!

What tips would you give to anyone thinking of starting your craft?

Just play around and experiment! Don’t get hung up on if your stuff is as good as other peoples’ etc. Just find your own style and embrace it – the whole point of a hobby such as papercrafting is to ENJOY it!

How did you find Misi?

Last November I did my first ever craft fair and I did so well I came home all fired up and googled “sell handmade” and there was MISI! I loved the look of the site so I registered and Looby Crafts was born!

What is your favourite item in your own Misi shop?

It would have to be this desk tidy, I don’t normally get too attached to the things I make, but I wouldn’t be too sad if this didn’t sell!

What is your favourite shop on Misi (besides your own)?

I can’t possibly choose just one! There are so many talented people on MISI, but I would have to say Sprinkles Sparkles for fabulous jewellery and accessories, Carolyn's Creations for personalised embroidery and The Pink Fairy Cake for all sorts of wonderful stuff!

Random Facts about you:

What is your favourite time of day?

I am so not a morning person! So definitely about 10pm, sitting in my craft room creating and watching a DVD – bliss!

What is your favourite chocolate?

Definitely a Wispa – so glad they brought those back!

What is your favourite colour?


What is your all-time favourite movie?

Gone in 60 seconds

What actor/actress would you NOT kick out of bed?

David Boreanaz – swoon!

How many DVDs do you have?

Embarrassingly far too many to count, but probably around 400
