I’m Angela Jose – the founder, editor and creative head of The-Crafty-Angels | Indian Craft Blog

Before I tell you about my crafty life, I work as Sr.Engineer at POWERGRID (India) and I am a Malayalee residing in Kolar (Karnataka) for the past 4 years. My husband who is my backbone a.k.a money bank for all my craft/decor works with me at the same office. Our daughter Grace is nearing 4 years and she crafts with me most of the times.

It would be cliche if I say I have always been interested in arts and crafts since childhood so let me rephrase it. I come from a family where like in any Indian family, the mother is super talented and does a lot of DIYs especially recycle crafts. I grew up seeing her make flowers and sewing dresses, it was natural that I wanted to make things as well. But like everybody else, I too joined the engineering bandwagon and forgotten were the old dreams of crafting and DIYs! It was during my 3rd year of work in POWERGRID that I decided to take part in the handicraft exhibition conducted annually by our company and I searched voraciously for something nice to make. It was then that I stumbled upon this new, pretty and magical world of craft blogging – a world I really wanted to escape into!

October 2013 I went on maternity break for 6 months and I literally took the plunge during this break to start my new blog – The Crafty Angels. It was hard in the beginning, not knowing how to blog, how to design a blog, how to put the layout, how to take photos, how to edit photos. My journey has been wonderful and when I look back to the first post, I can really see how much I have grown.

When I started this blog, my main intention was to have tutorials that could help hobbyists and crafters to make things on their own and I think I am hugely satisfied with how much of that I have achieved so far. Since this blog is solely the work of a one-woman army struggling with office and home, the pace of marching is a bit slow but I love what I make and I love when I receive comments on how the tutorials helped them 🙂

I hope to make the blog a little more personal one but as I said right now I am marching at snail’s pace 😛 but definitely on my agenda.

 

I love interacting with decor/design/craft enthusiasts . Feel free to contact me at [email protected]
