Hi, I’m Nola, and welcome to Craft with Nola!
To start, let me tell you a little about myself. My actual name is Nolwenn, I am French, and I have been living in Miami for a couple years. Why “Nola” then? Well… Go ahead and try saying “Nolwenn”. Not easy, right?! Nola seemed to work in Miami, and I kept it to build this brand because “No” could be for Nolwenn, and “La” for Laurence, my mother. I have to give my mother a lot of credit because my passion for crafts comes from her.
Now let’s talk about crafts. Growing up, I could see my mother make exceptional things out of anything. She taught me her love for DIY projects and I developed a crafty hand myself. I wanted to share this passion online, but I also wanted to find a way to craft responsibly. We already have so many toxic products and so much waste around us, I thought crafts should be chemical-free, harmless and just fun, especially for nurseries and interior decors.
So I came up with CraftwithNola.com to offer earth-friendly DIY projects made with materials that are sustainable, natural, organic, and non-toxic. Find more about our materials in this article. My crafting kits are a lot of fun to make, for all levels, and only require basic skills. For now, I am mostly working with bamboo felt, my favorite eco-friendly material. It is such a cozy material and with its vibrant colors, decorative ideas are endless.
And don’t forget: Craft responsibly!
