A peek inside the crafty life of Amy Cluck

First off, a little backstory. Who are you? What do you make?
Hi! My name is Amy Cluck. I am a writer, web designer, baker, lover of all things pink and covered with sprinkles, hostess-with-the-mostess, and all around crafty gal.
I was inspired to start Peptogirl Industries in 2005, after finding an amazing and supportive community of crafters on the web. Peptogirl comes from a nickname I earned while working as a student assistant (during college). You could say I was crazy for the color pink — and still am!
Today I create one-of-a-kind jewelry, accessories, craft kits, and embroidery patterns under the name sweet&salty. I try to incorporate a little bit of humor into everything I make. My products never take themselves too seriously!

What projects are you in the middle of right now that you should probably be working on instead of doing this?

I changed my shop name recently (to sweet&salty) so I should be working on my new website and branding. Or making Christmas gifts. Or stitching new embroidery patterns.

I melt for you
Where do you primarily create?

At home – on the couch, on the kitchen counter, at the kitchen table, at my desk, on the floor…pretty much anywhere I can cover in craft supplies, I do.

Where do you find inspiration?
Flickr, blogs, magazines, changing seasons, everyday life

Do you have a favorite book/blog/movie/etc you'd like to recommend?
Daily blog reads: Thompson Family Life:, A Beautiful Mess:, Style Me Pretty:, Bakerella:, and My Girl Thursday:
Movies: Pretty much anything with Zooey Deschanel. ELF is one of my favorites this time of year and I'm also loving 500 Days of Summer.

Books: To Kill A Mocking Bird is my all time fav.

Where can readers see more of your work?

My blog: , My Website (currently in-progress):, and my etsy shop (It’s looking kind of bare these days):

Thanks for letting us peek into your crafty life, Amy!
