Casey Buchanan, also known as jungrrl, is an administrator for the Web site craftster.org. Although there’s crafting and creativity in her family, she never considered herself a crafter until the wonders of the Internet convinced her that there was more to crafting than angels and doilies (not that there’s anything wrong with those!). Casey became a member of Craftster in 2004. In 2006, she was selected as a moderator for the Crafty Business Advice Boards, and then in 2008, she was hired by Craftster as an official employee. Casey dabbles in many crafts, but she especially enjoys creating plush creatures.
Craftster is an online community where people share hip, off-beat, crafty DIY projects and tutorials. The term “Craftster” means “crafty hipster” and draws upon the recent renaissance in crafting known as the indie craft movement. Craftster is the largest online community for indie crafts and welcomes a wide range of craft types, such as clothing, sewing, knitting, paper crafting, ceramics, glasswork and jewelry. Recycling, reusing and upcycling are also popular craft techniques exemplified by the Craftster community. Craftster was started in 2003 and has since grown to a membership of over 1,000,000 visitors per month. Visit Craftster at craftster.org.
