Rap meets crafts and home decor at CREAMstitchery
About a year ago, I rediscovered cross stitch. It had been six years since I'd done anything crafty, and I was looking for a creative outlet, but I had no idea what I wanted to stitch! At the same time, I'd discovered a love of rap. One evening, the two seemed to come together, and I sewed a little "Swag" pillow for a friend. She loved it so much that pretty soon, I was making swaggish custom designs for all my friends.
"Sell your pillows on Etsy!" my friends urged, when I tried to make them pay for my designs. Seeing as they're all college students, I decided that maybe Etsy was the way to go.
And here I am, selling pillows that stay true to that hip-hop origin. I'm always listening to new music, mainstream and underground, and looking for inspiration. Of course, inspiration is never hard to find when you're doing something you love.

Victoria Grace is a journalism student in California. When she's not chasing down interviews and writing, though, she's busy cross stitching and listening to preposterous amounts of hip hop.
