A pale skinned, purple haired weirdo wearing thick black cat ear glasses looks very unimpressed at something in the distance. They are wearing a black flannel-patterned sweat shirt.

Yup. That’s me.

Hoo boy. I made the mistake on the first day of 2023 of looking at this profile and realizing it had been a very long time since I bothered to update it. So. Let’s try again, shall we?

Hi! I’m Manda, the Cozy Cryptid who Crafts.

Rumor has it I’m a 40-something weirdo, rarely spotted in the wild, who gets twitchy if I’m not using my hands to make things, and I natter on about my experiences with the Void—and presumably you, if you’re here reading this. I knit. I spin yarn. I stitch. I sew and quilt. I hand-dye yarn and used to run Lamby Toes, a one-person business that specialized in speckle-dyed sock yarns. I podcast with my bestie, Kate at the Cozy Craft Club on YouTube. I collect mugs and have a stationary obsession, the most recent addition being fountain pens. I’m nerdy, dorky, and geeky: a true triple threat. I have an obsession with tracking stats and playing with numbers. I fancy myself an artist. I enjoy playing cozy video games and reading very dirty books with monster protagonists. I’m introverted and a very awkward, rarely leaving my snuggly cave I’ve created. I’m no longer able to mask, so…you get what you get if we meet in person. I’m sorry I made that weird. I tried, really, I did. I’m horrible at small talk, but I love knowing more about others and hearing what makes you excited in life. I have mauve hair (don’t care, ha!) and an affinity for large and crazy glasses. I’m a non-sappy, enbie mother and a well-seasoned Army spouse. I’m currently turning into a leveled up version of my 15 year old self, who knew?

I am a lot of things: maybe one of them resonates with you? If you see me out and about, say hi, but just remember, I’m shy.

Please come join me as I blog and podcast. I would love to hear from you.
