I’m Sarina. I live on Long Island with my husband,Tim and our dog, Gypsy. I am a Children’s and Teen librarian so naturally I love to read. In my spare time I make all sorts of fun creations by means of sewing, painting or re-purposing. Many of the things I create are available in my Etsy shop. When I’m not creating I’m consuming! I love all of the wonderful things geek culture has to offer and I’m always looking for the next thing to fall in love with.
Nerd Craft Librarian is pretty much explained in its title. On the blog you can find all of the home made crafts that I have constructed over the years. As explained earlier, many of them are inspired by pop-culture and the fandoms that I love. I frequently feature tutorials of step-by-step instructions on all of the wonderful things that I make.
I’m lucky enough to have a job where I am able to incorporate both my love of crafts and geek culture. When I do certain things at work I like to feature them on the blog in what I call, Library Life. I’m so proud of some of the things I get to do that I want to share it with the world.
The blog is also a journal, a way for me to keep track of what I’m doing and how I have evolved, not just as a crafter or librarian but as a person. So these types of posts can range in topics from what I’m currently reading, opinions about nerd related things or what I did the past week.
As I honed my crafting skills, I became confident enough to share my creations and techniques. I am also an avid blog reader. Many techniques and skills I learned from DIY blogs. I wanted to pay it forward to the next person in need of some crafty guidance. Later the blog expanded to feature ideas and inspiration for fellow librarians. We live in an age of shared intelligence and there is no reason to keep it to yourself.
I run a shop of the same name, Nerd Craft Librarian. There I sell mostly bags and accessories that are all handmade and feature some of my favorite nerdy things. I also take custom orders of anything that is featured on the blog. If you are interested in a custom order please email me.: firstname.lastname@example.org
