Whenever someone says spending a night in, drinking wine and doing a little crafting is lame, just point them in direction of Domesek.
Erica Domesekis the queen of DIY. Her hobby turned from passion to an every-day job and became really successful. The “P.S. I Made This…” blogger and author revealed that when it comes to crafting and creating, it’s best to do not it, well, yourself. “I always say, ‘Don’t do it yourself, do it together.’ You have more fun doing it with your friends, and there’s always someone who’s a bit more artistic and has more skill. They can help out,” she told ELLE magazine in a interview.
In fact, a “crafternoon” of necklace-making was how her fabulous empire came to life. And now, nearly four years after her website launched, she has two books, a partnership with Bloomingdales and is launching a line with Swiss Army knives for West Elm. So.
Domesek has appeared on The Today Show, Rachael Ray, The Martha Stewart Show, E! News, The Nate Berkus Show, Fox Business News, and as a judge on TLC’s Craft Wars. Her work has been featured in issues of Glamour, Lucky, InStyle, Teen Vogue, Self, Elle, Vogue, The Wall Street Journal and more. In 2013, she was named as a spokesperson for the Craft and Hobby Association (CHA).
