 1. At what age did you start crafting?
Anna : I started sewing and crocheting at age 8, but really got into it about 3 years ago.

2. Tell us how you decided to make videos for YouTube.
Anna : I watched a lot of crafting videos (mostly crochet) before I had a YouTube account,and it looked like it could be a lot of fun to make and upload videos! I found more crafters and new things I have never tried before (polymer clay, duct tape, plushies) and really just went from there.

3. What is your main goal on YouTube as a crafting guru?
Anna : I truly just want to inspire, it is a great feeling when someone says they used your tutorial to make a creation or anytime someone refers to a video I have uploaded

4. What kind of videos do you make on YouTube?
Anna : Sewing videos, Polymer clay charm updates, And every now and then I upload Music Videos, Gluten Free cooking tutorials, and Randomness!

5. Do you sell your creations?
Anna : I do sell my creations, but I do not have a online store yet, but I am working on it!

6. What are other hobbies you have besides your forte?
Anna : Cooking and Baking! I want to make a career out of baking food for people with special allergens, as I am allergic to Gluten and Corn.

7. How long do you see yourself on YouTube?
Anna :  I really have not thought about it, I will be around for a long time though!

8. What are your thoughts on the crafting community on YouTube?
Anna :  It is amazing! Everyone is really close and willing to help new users get a good start! You will make great friends and meet people from all over the world!

9. User savvy tips for future craftubers?
Anna : It is good to be prepared for what you are going into, make sure you have a camera and an editing program so you can make the best videos possible, Choose a creative username that has something to do with crafts (When I see a username like MyChannel816 I don't assume it is going have videos about crafts),
User pictures are the next thing people see besides your username so it is best to have your picture a creation you have made,
Upload videos! People are more likley to subscribe if you post videos often (but no too often)

10. Inspiring message for us and your viewers?
Anna : Sounds cliche, but you should really just be yourself! Just being you will make you stand out of the crowd! There are millions of YouTubers out there so don't be discouraged if things are not going the way you planned, just keep making videos and getting the message out about your channel. Everything will fall into place from there.
