Spotlight Designer: Audrey M!
Q&A with Audrey
Tell us about yourself: My name is Audrey, and I’m the designer behind Min2Be Designs. I’m a mom of 2 toddler girls and bought my first laser almost 3 years ago! I’ve always been a creative person, and during the Pandemic, I needed a way to be just that. I love sharing tips and tricks while helping the next wave of laser artists get up on their feet.
What 3 words would you use to describe yourself? - curious, honest, and ambitious
What is your favorite type of material to work with and why? - I love acrylic! I think it’s so pretty and elegant. I also love that there’s so many styles and colors out there and that the possibilities are endless!
What is a project you are proud of and why (provide a picture if possible)? - I'm obsessed with my layered leaves designs. I've attached a photo of my most recent version. I love that you can add a layer of dimension to a sign by stacking another layer to it.
What inspired this file? I love seeing designs with intricate designs, but sometimes, those designs also come with challenges when trying to puzzle together all the laser cut pieces or when painting a million pieces. I wanted to create a sign that was easy to put together but one that can also be elevated if an artist wanted to.
What do you do to get in the zone for crafting? - Working from home with 2 toddlers can be quite chaotic, so I love to craft in silence. I know people think it’s weird, but I rarely turn on music while working. A quiet night brings me peace and allows some creative juices to flow.
Who inspires you and why? Moms in the creative space. It's already hard being a parent and working, but add juggling another passion job to that mix and it's definitely hard to manage it all. I love seeing mom creators who are a couple steps ahead of me. Seeing their hustle and goto spirit inspires me to keep going.
What is your favorite thing to do outside of crafting? - I love spending time with my family. Life is short so I want to enjoy the present moment. We love going on mini vacations when possible! Our most recent trip was a last minute trip to Hawaii!
