    Get excited for our latest Maker Interview with Kara Good of Stitchin Good. Her homemade body products like lotion bars and whipped body creams are awesome and we wanted to find out what inspires her work.

    Snapguide: How did you get into crafting?
    Kara: My very sweet and bubbly Grandmother taught me how to cross stitch when I was 7 years old. I fell in love with it again in the fall of 2013, and have been enjoying every minute of it. My husband gave me hand embroidery classes as a Valentine’s Day gift, and it has been so so fun learning something new.


    S: What do you like doing in your free time, besides making awesome projects?
    K: I moved from New York City to Louisville, KY about 2 months ago. I have loved exploring what our new city has to offer. I love trying new local restaurants, popping into local shops, and I have been using my new library card a little too much.

    S: What’s your favorite material to work with?
    K: My favorite material is coconut oil. It is so versatile, and so good for you… inside and out. I truly love making my own beauty products, and it’s comforting to know each of the ingredients in the products I use.

    S: It’s delicious to cook with, too! Any guides coming up that you’re excited about?
    K: I am very excited about the Summer Smoothie contest. I have started researching different types of smoothies, and I’m excited to create an entry for the contest. I am also gearing up to create new “explore a local park” guides now that we’re in Louisville.

    S: Awesome! We can’t wait to see what you blend up. Who is your favorite maker on Snapguide right now?
    K: I am loving Marie Rayma’s guides. I share her “stubbornly DIY” outlook on life, and love her all-natural beauty products.

    S: Ha! We love that DIY commitment. Marie is great and even won the Grand Prize in our tea contest. Thanks for spending some time with us!
