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.

I love watercolor painting because it’s so versatile and so beautiful. You can have fun experimenting, or try to paint a scene. You can blend it, add resist to it, and so many other fun ideas. This is a great way to release some stress. There’s no wrong way to watercolor!

Painted Pour Over Coffee Maker

Painted Pour Over Coffee Maker

I’m a coffee addict who hates to use more precious beans than I need to, which is why I love this single serve pour over option. It makes a great cup of coffee exactly to my taste in no time. Most pour over brewers are a little drab, though, so I love the option to dress it up yourself!

Every once in a while, my mom and I get together and make soap using the cold process method.

I don’t know what it is about me, but I can’t be in a room that doesn’t have a clock.

Large Wonderful Wall Clock

I love this clock because it makes a huge statement, but it’s more about the art that surrounds those tiny clock hands rather than the time-keeper itself. I love the layers that you build up too.
