About Joselyn

I'm Joselyn, the Marketing Manager for CreateForLess. Though knitting is my true crafty love, I've been experimenting with all kinds of products and techniques for as long as I can remember. I also love my dog Kirby, baking, going to the beach, and creating all kinds of ice cream flavors. I'm a Portland native who loves the rainy Northwest weather that gives me an excuse to stay inside with my coffee, a bunch of movies, and my knitting.
