Spotlight Designer: Tooney W.

Spotlight Designer! Tooney W.!

Q&A With Tooney!

What is something interesting about yourself? I’ve been a professional photographer for over a decade and specialize in empowering and classy Boudoir Photography. The pandemic though forced me to find other ways to hustle and I came across the Glowforge and it reignited all the fun I had as a kid making my own toys and crafts and art.

What 3 words would you use to describe yourself?
Unconventional, positive, kind

What is your favorite type of material to work with and why? I love mixing wood with some fun acrylics. Basically anything from the Craft Closet!

What is a project you are proud of and why? I got a request for a custom Succulent Garden Sign, and wanted to create something that matched my clients personality and unique and colorful succulent garden. After taking hours and hours trying to come up with a design, I was stuck and taking a breather and staring at all my beautiful acrylics from you guys, and it dawned on me. I want to use EVERYTHING! So I decided to create a stained glass effect and the results were beautiful.

What inspired this file? Definitely all the beautiful acrylics I got from the Craft Closet.

What do you do to get in the zone for crafting? First thing I do is clean my space. Brew coffee, and put on my 90s alternative playlist :D

Who inspires you and why? My kids for sure!! They are both super artistic and I just want to inspire them to keep being creative and to work hard for their dreams.

What is your favorite thing to do outside of crafting? The one thing I look forward to the most outside of crafting is definitely watching Spurs basketball games haha Another favorite is Boudoir Photography - I absolutely love empowering other women to help them see their own beauty :)
