About The Crafty Afro

Hi guys,

My name is EJ, I’m the Creative Executive Officer of The Crafty Afro.

I bet you’re wondering why this blog is here, who it’s for, what you’ll learn, and what in the world is a Crafty Afro?

The Mission!

In a nutshell The Crafty Afro is a craft blog that focuses on helping people learn a new hobby or activity.

Crafts included on this site are:

  • Crochet
  • Circuit tutorials (coming soon)
  • Sewing
  • and General crafts.

Where Did the Name The Crafty Afro Come From?

Before I became a blogger, I was a high school science teacher. My students (and my husband) could always identify me by my larger-than-life Afro.

The Fro

Then when my youngest daughter was born, in 2017, I decided to become a SAHM.

I’ve always been interested in crochet, drawing, singing, dancing…pretty much anything that is creative in nature, I enjoy doing.

I consider myself a Jack of Most Trades when it comes to crafty things. It wasn’t until recently that I took up sewing and discovered the amazing world of fabric.

Being a stay-at-home parent can be a little lonely. Blogging seemed like a natural way to connect with other people and share the things I created.

There you have it. The story behind the blog’s name.

Large Afro + Love of crafting = The Crafty Afro!

When I’m not working on my blog, taking care of my family, or helping out at my church. You can find me vegging out on the couch watching an anime(MHA) or some superhero show (FYI batman is the best superhero!).

Watching TV in my sweet Goku socks!
