About the author of the videos:

My name is Merve, I am a Muslim, an engineer from New York, a mom, a wife and a crafter by nature. My parents introduced me to arts and crafts at a very early age. I love doing arts and crafts as a hobby but most importantly to teach my son about nature and manual skills. My parents and I traveled quite a lot, thus I was able to pick up different cultures and languages easily. My parents introduced me to arts and crafts at a very early age. I love doing arts and crafts as a hobby :).

As a child I watched many Japanese shows. These shows influenced my taste, my skills and even my choice in profession. One of these arts and crafts shows that influenced me was called ¿Can I do it? Or in Japanese, Dekirukana? (できるかな). (Their protagonists were Noppo (ノッポさん Noppo-san), played by Ei Takami, and Gonta (ゴン太くん Gonta-kun). I only watched the show from age 4-5 but it did leave quite an impression in my life as well as in the life of many other children.
