National DIY DAY T-shirt Designer | Hearts & Sharts | Atlanta, GA
Get your hands on Dena's T-shirt design HERE!
While my main focus is the shop, the blog side of Hearts & Sharts is a fun mix of sewing and DIY projects, cheeky bathroom humor and more recently, illustration and pattern design.
The most challenging part of a blog is trying not to compare myself to others.

Can you tell us your biggest craft fail?
Craft fail? I don't know what that means.
Okay, seriously: I had to paint a multicolored striped dresser for a project. When I sanded it down, I had an allergic reaction and had to go get a shot in my butt. So, that was fun. Does that count?
What is one piece of advice would you give someone wanting to start a blog or creative business:
A Blog: Everyone thinks they can do it, and think they can do it well. Most of them are wrong and there's not enough room on the internet. Go eat a sandwich.
Creative Business: Go for it!! Chase your dreams! Eat a sandwich!
Where do you get your creative inspiration?
Whiskey, mostly. Sometimes beer
What are you most excited about for National DIY DAY?
Cupcakes! (There will be cupcakes, right?)
In 5 years, what is your goal for you and your blog?
No goals for the blog, I just want to focus on creating and selling.

I have actually slipped on a banana peel. Didn't fall, it was a slight skid.
