"I’m Naida, and I’ve been creating for over 30 years and I am still learning! I love making cute, whimsy gifts for others. I love sharing my creations and paper templates with my community on Instagram and Facebook."


1. How long have you been creating and how did you get started?
I've been crafting since my early 20s, mind you I'm 58 years old now and I'm still learning.


2. What is/are your favorite Surebonder product(s):
I discovered Surebonder glue guns and glue through instagram and youtube videos. My all time favorite product is the precision tip glue gun.

Check out Naida's favorite detail tip glue gun or the cordless/corded version:

2. What do you love most about the creative process and what is the hardest part?:

My most favorite as of lately has been working with cardstock, which is a very fun way of making seasonal decor.


3. What inspires you to create?:
I'm always looking at tutorials and other creators for inspiration, but most importantly I try to look into my surroundings and my community.


4. Who’s another maker you admire and what do you love about their work?:
My favorite creator is Melody Lane Inspired. I learned from her that there are no silly questions. All questions are important to be able to learn.
