As you may have guessed, my name is Becky Knips (kuh-nips) - don't worry, everybody pronounces it wrong! I have loved crafting of all types since I was a kid. When my cousin invited me to a Pinterest conference in Utah a few years ago, I jumped at the chance. It was at that conference where I took a class called "Playtime with Power Tools". They taught us how to make a simple farmhouse style frame and I was hooked! I went home and immediately bought a nail gun, miter saw, and a used Cricut Explore cutting machine.
Fast forward a few months and I was introduced to the Fort Collins Creator Hub! This community makerspace has a woodshop, metal shop, 3D printers, and, my personal favorite, a laser cutter! I create most of the designs in Adobe Photoshop and transfer it to cut and etch on the laser! Earrings have been my specialty and I've sold over 700 pair in 7 months! I'm very thankful that my fun hobby has turned into a money-making venture and I think you dearly for your support!
