Interview with Virginia, Fynes Designs
When did you start crafting?
I started crafting at a very young age. The youngest of 10, I was often teased because I loved to cut, color and paste all day long, while the other kids were all out getting dirty.
I loved using old socks, toilet paper rolls, scraps of paper and yarn to create “beautiful” decorations, doll clothes and paper mache cats.
What’s your favorite medium to work with?
I love crafting with wood. I can rock a scroll saw and can cut a mean pattern. I make signs for a hobby and just built my first piece of furniture from scratch.
What’s your favorite thing to do (other than crafting, of course)?
I love hanging out with my sisters, hitting yard sales and antique stores and making blanket forts with my kids.
How do you stay organized?
Organization isn’t exactly my strong suit. I have a lot of Post-It notes, an AWESOME momma that helps me with just about anything I ask and kids that don’t mind eating super on top of my most recent product…the kitchen often gets turned into a craft room.
