This is what Sonika speaks about her journey as a crafter and her story of being a craftpreneur….

Hello Everyone,

My name is Sonika Agarwal. I am from Vellore, Tamil Nadu and have a crafty venture named Albela craft by sonika . Since my childhood days I had interest in art and craft activities.By qualification I am a lawyer but my passion towards art and craft never leaves me anywhere under any circumstances.My parents ,my in-laws family and my husband have always encouraged me and been a great support system throughout my journey. I have two little girls who are like fairies of my life and at this age of 10 years and 6 years they are supporting me to another extend.

How it’s all started? (My Crafting Journey!)

Crafting is in my blood as it is gifted to me by my dadi (grand mother) and my mother who teach me many craft related things like knitting , embroidery and paintings

What Inspired me?

Well, Inspiration comes when you are associated with the people who encourage your work. I would like to thank my close friends who are always behind my success as well as mention one particular name that is UMA DIDWANIA. My family members always encourage and support me, which gives me confidence to reach next level. Prika is also a major source of inspiration.

My Most Favourite Crafts of All?

Well, It just difficult question to answer, but I like Alteration and Mixed Media. It is so satisfying to see once the project is completed. All your hard work is waved off when you see “Wow effect” on your project.

My style of crafting?

Well, there is no particular style for me, since I try to create different things
with different materials. I consider myself still in learning phase.

My Future Plans?

Well, I just wanted to spread more smiles with my crafty skill. It is so wonderful to gift someone your hand made gift, and say it’s made by me and the smile on their face is all the reward I want. In future would like to conduct workshop for the people who would love to learn. I would also like to increase my craft skills as much as I can.

Message for all Crafters!

A very simple tip to all fellow crafter is to always give try to a new thing. I recommend my fellow Crafters to get inspired from others and make it in your way or style . Don’t try to copy it just bring it in your own way and always make your project with love.

At last I want to say all people do whatever you love to do and always try to do something new. Enjoy Crafting!!!!!
