Andrea (Andy) of O&Y Studio is a North Carolina fiber artist who creates one-of-a-kind wool floral art.

She also combines crochet with driftwood for original wall hangings that would add cozy fun style to just about any home. I was thrilled when she agreed to an interview for the blog.

I’ve recently developed a bit of an obsession with looking at other people’s bullet journals. I currently use a combination of calendars, to-do lists, end of day roundups, and journals for a variety of different purposes. I find that I’m getting lots of good inspiration and tips from people’s bullet journals that are helping me to improve my own on-paper logging systems. In looking through all of this inspiration, I started wondering how people who crochet are using their bullet journals.
