Beginning January of 2013, Emily Branch Designs is pleased to feature new content such as video series aimed at sharing with you the trendiest techniques and expertise on a range of crafting-related topics, interactive posts where you can provide input on a range of topics; and finally, product features, where I will take the coolest products in the hobby & crafting industry, and show you creative and new ways to design with them.
I adore crafting everyday, I simply can't get enough of it! When I'm not crafting, I'm teaching middle school students creative genius in ceramics and introductory art. My husband and I live with our little bird, Mr. Green in sunny California, where I have over-taken the "office" with all things creative! I adore vintage items, turn-of-the-century design and have a profound love affair with modern design of the early 20th century. My background and education in art history & design mix together with my affinity for vintage goods to create a happy hybrid that shows through in my work.
