Welcome Michaela, our new intern!

Hi Friends! I would love to introduce our new friend/intern, Michaela! She's awesome and we are so excited that she has joined our UCU team! We wanted to introduce her by doing a little interview...

UCU- How about you tell us a little bit about yourself. Day job? Why you decided to intern for us?
M- Hi everyone! I'm Michaela (pronounced makayla) and I'm very excited to be here as Urban Craft Uprisings' new intern! By day I manage an office in Seattle and by night-when I'm not doting on my pup Rosie- I'm crafting away on some project or another. I decided to intern for UCU after attending a few shows and helping to poster for the Winter 2010 show. I love crafting and I loved all the energy at the shows and really wanted to get more involved. Plus hey- it's just plain awesome!!

UCU- What is your favorite craft?
M- Favorite craft? That's a tough one! I love being creative and trying crafts of all kind but I would definitely say photography and creating miniature things with Sculpey clay have been with me since I was just a wee child crafter. But if we've met recently at a show-or you've seen me around- it's most likely been with my camera, snapping away. I may even have some pictures of you and/or your lovely work!

UCU- What are you most excited for in this new position?
M- I'm so excited to be a part of this fabulous and creative team! I can't wait to get more involved in the local crafting community and also excited to meet new artists and art lovers!

Cheers to a fabulous and artful year!
