Allison Bartlett is the Director of Community Learning for Do Space
Introduce Yourself! – Who are you and what does your organization do?
Heya! You can call me Haunted Leg! I am an independent crafter who spends her time learning new arts and technologies every single day. I started this journey with my #CraftADayChallenge where I simply aimed to make a craft each and every day. This was especially important to me throughout 2020 where my goal was to put a smile on at least one person’s face each day with my art. Currently, my crafting doesn’t pay the bills, but maybe someday! That’s the true dream. And, hey, you never know what life will bring but I am prepared to take it on with a hot glue gun, computer, and a vat of mod podge. 😉
What do you make?
What do I make? Anything you can dream of. There is no limit to what we can make together with a little inspiration and a lot of glue.
What are you planning to show at Make Omaha?
Pepper’s Ghost Holographic Illusion. In a game. Because it sounds cool and I think I can.
What are you looking forward to seeing at Make Omaha from other participants?
I am excited to see their creativity. It is always a joy to talk to someone about a project they are passionate about– It is like a deep dive straight into their imagination!
What tech/maker-type stuff are you interested in getting in the future?
I am excited to explore crafting on Twitch at Twitch.tv/Haunted_Leg where I will be able to teach people skills that enable them to do all the cool things they never thought they could before.
Anything else you’d like to add?
Huh, anything I want here? Uhh, sure! It costs nothing to be kind. Telling someone that you appreciate them is free. A compliment costs you nothing but can make their day. You never know what other people are going through, so be kind to each other as you would hope people would treat you and your loved ones. We have all had a rough go of it but we are still a community. Souls and minds linked by shared experiences and dreams. So, go out there and, “Be a Good Bloke.”
