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.

So, mushrooms may be the food that I hate the most. Being a vegetarian, it can be a little difficult to hate mushrooms as much as I do, but I just can’t develop a taste for them. Mushrooms that you don’t eat, on the other hand? I love them, I think they’re adorable. That’s why I love a good toadstool project like these.
