People, is there no end to creativity? Not when it comes to Kate Blaser of I Love You Berry Much! Keep reading to learn about her and her wonderful creations. We are so excited she will be with us at Handmade in April.
Kate, introduce yourself!
My name is Kate Blaser, I am 21 years old and am currently a college student at BYU studying Psychology.
Tell us what you create and what you love most about them?
I create handmade felt strawberries as well as other felt food items such as strawberry shortcake, strawberry pop tarts, and fortune cookies.
What I love most about my product is the bright colors. I love making different color combinations and being able to experiment with different berry options.
I also love the idea of bringing ordinary food items into your home in a different way- both for display and for play!
How long have you been doing this?
I started this company about a year and a half ago because I wanted a project but it has become more of a passion than I imagined it would!
When you’re not creating, what else do you enjoy doing?
Some other passions of mine are miniature things (I have an extensive collection), Diet Coke, party planning, the smell of baby lotion, and the color yellow.
What have you learned in becoming a Handmade artist?
I have learned and have loved so much about starting this company but I have especially enjoyed getting to meet and connect with other artisans.
Doing collaborations has connected me with so many amazing vendors who have enriched my experience as an artisan; can’t wait to meet more of you!
How can people get in touch with you?
