scratching the creative itch.

Hello and welcome to my shop, The Verdant Hearth! My name is Sonya, and I am a crafty cottage witch living in rural New England.

I love knitting, painting, writing, and endless other forms of creating. I've often joked that my creative attention span is non-existent.

I discovered riot grrrl and feminism in middle school, and with them I learned about zines. As someone who's never been good with the concept of a "regular job," the DIY nature of zines, self-publishing, and small businesses has always felt like home to me. I've been writing since I was young, been making zines for about a decade, and am currently working on a young adult horror novel.

In high school, I decided I wanted to learn how to knit--so I did. Now I've been knitting for over thirteen years, and it's one of my best forms of relaxation and inspiration.

Most recently, I've branched into art journaling and the messy cut-and-paste world of mixed media. If there's an art supply, I'd love to try it. If it happens to smudge my hands, all the better.

Every sale I make means so much to me as a stay/work from home mother. My days are all about finding the balance between my personal time to create and my time as a mom to my awesome little gremlin.
