April 26th 2013 Hi! My name is Niina but over here I call myself Thrifty Finn. This blog began as a method of coping with my pain in the butt knees and what felt like a never-ending wait to get them fixed. Naturally the topic had to be crafts and thrift shopping since both are very risk free activities when it comes to afore-mentioned knees. And who doesn’t love crafts anyway? My crafty skills include paper, fabric, embroidery and printing. Yes, I actually have silkscreen equipment here at home. Awesome, huh?
Right now I’m finally at the point where I’ve gotten the much-needed operation so I can actually move ahead with my life. What does that mean for Thrifty Finn, the blog? First of all, I’m going to be more out and about! Yeah, I’ll be sharing interesting things outside my home. This will hopefully translate into more interesting crafts too. On top of that, I’m planning to open Thrifty Finn Digital Stamps & Embroidery Patterns Store within next few months. Domain is bought and coding is slowly progressing but I’ll keep you posted on that. (That’s why you haven’t seen many card crafts here lately, I’ve been busy sketching!!!)
How about my professional life? Since I’m finally free to work, I’ve started the painstaking process of writing CVs, updating my portfolio and networking. My life goal is to be a creative director (don’t laugh) and dammit, I’m going to get there. Tips on how to achieve that, are always welcome.
Feel free to contact me. I can answer questions about myself, crafts, design and thrift stores. Don’t be afraid to give me suggestions on new blog posts, blog meets, job opportunities and collaborations. I’m very keen on doing guest posts!
Love, Thrifty Finn.
