Heather Donohue has been crafting since childhood. If social media had existed, you could look up posts about the pom pom business budding from her fourth-grade school desk. Or pin a pic of her latest polymer clay Santa face magnets. Or watch a reel about the craft sale where she’s selling miniature polymer clay food. With her mom.

These days, she's making dreamy Christmas stockings and tree skirts, and even a few life-size yeti costumes for The New Standards Holiday Show.  She is a guest blogger on handmadecharlotte.com and designing projects as part of the Benzie Maker Team.

Heather’s work has been in magazines, on stage, and online. Select pieces have been available at John Derian Company, Quirk Gallery, {verdigreen}, Parcel, and I Like You. She's mostly worked through being an introvert and now loves leading in-person craft workshops.

Her craft lab is in Minneapolis, where she lives with her husband, their twins, and cavalier king charles spaniel.
