What's your name?
Roxanne Andujar

The short version, how would you describe your shop?
Well, my shop is just anything crochet inspired in all the geeky goodness that's out there. I get influenced by a lot of TV shows, video games and anything that I really love and would buy items from. 

How did you come up with your shop name?
It's an inside joke between me and my husband. At the end of the day I liked it because it sounds like a new Harry Potter book: Harry Potter and the Curse of The Scarlet Handcraft!! :P

What's your preferred social media for your shop?
Instagram. I found that the community is more supportive and your pictures get to more people.

Do you have your shop full time? Or do you do something else too?
My primary job is being mom of two little humans. But when I'm not doing that, I'm 100% focused on my shop.

What's your go-to snack to munch on while you work?
It's funny because I concentrate so much that I forget to eat most of the times. But I love to have a nice cup of green tea with me.

What's your most underrated geeky product that you wish would sell more?
My Legend of Zelda Cushions...

What are you looking forward to the most for your business?
I just hope that eventually I can make it a full time job and be able to go to craft fairs and continue to be happy making what I love.
