We would like to get to know a bit more about the person behind Evie George.
If you were a flower, what would you be?
I’d probably be one of the little purple flowers on Lavender.
What is your favourite meal?
Beer Butt Chicken!! It’s so good- you put a delicious rub over the chicken then you put an open can of beer (or coke) up the chickens *ahem* butt and cook it standing up and it all the flavour steams the meat. I love comfort food and big English meals.
Cadbury’s or Galaxy?
Cadburys every time- I really hope Kraft don’t change the recipe!
What’s your favourite colour?
And now about your work.
How did you get started?
I have always made all the cards I send and presents for friends and family, they kept telling me I should sell the things I make so I thought I’d give it a go!
What’s your favourite material to work with and why?
I love paper. All types of paper- I love old books and the smell of brand new paper in it’s box. My favourite month always used to be September when you would get to buy new stationery ready for school- I still treat myself to a lovely new journal or notepad in September!
When you need some inspiration, where do you go?
I like to go to my local knitting shop- I can’t knit but they have a whole wall of ribbons and buttons and the ladies in there are so lovely!
I also find lots of inspiration on lots of blogs- there are so many creative people out there in blog-land.
What’s the first thing you remember making?
I vividly remember making daffodils out of egg cups at primary school and being covered in yellow poster paint. I am still a very messy maker!!!
What’s your favourite item in your shop?
My favourite items are my prayer frames. I sell lots of these in church shops and local cafes but they don’t sell so well on Folksy. I really enjoy making these.
