About Me

Hi, I’m Erica and I am a DIY Craft person who has been doing crafts for longer than I remember.

I am not a professional craft artist or designer, in fact I am a stay at home mom of two kids who enjoy crafts and do it for fun. I do not make my living on crafts and I don’t sell my crafts as a business. To me crafting is something that if I want to pursue I will go and look for ideas online, buy the supplies needed to create the craft and then try it out in my own way. If I like it than awesome and I will share with my friends and family. If it does not turn out how I want then oh well, those are the things that happen when trying new crafts.

I previously ran an online store but with life and kids did not have enough time so had to put my passion to the side for my family. I missed crafting and discussing new projects with others so I created TheCraftypolkadot.com.

Outside of crafting, I enjoy a variety of things. I love to read, travel, watch binge worthy TV shows, listen to music or even see a great movie. I grew up in Southern California and now live in the Washington State area so it is a mix of the best of both worlds.

I am also an animal lover and have three furry kids who keep me on my toes. They keep us busy running after squirrels, playing fetch with Frisbees and being semi-picky eaters (yes not all dogs are).

I hope you enjoy what I share and we can get to know each other through the site and my social media sites.
