I’m Bett. I’m a writer and the creator of Craft It, an online brand.
Craft It is built on the stories of Kenyans and the stuff they make by hand.
Surrounding ‘Craft It – Made by Hand’ is other stories about dusty rugs, motherhood, Kampala and conversations we’ve had and overheard. If you squint, you just might see the frivolity that colours the spaces between our words. Later, out of sheer snobbery, we put together a guide about what makes the urbanite tick.
Under ‘Old Blog’ is content from, well, my old blog. www.fcbett. Were you subscribed? To be honest with you, I had made peace with letting the stories go but I later thought to myself, why can’t I have them back? So with a little poking in the dark, I had all the content migrated over here. Let it sit there and warm its little butt.
‘Media’ is published copy I have written for True Love and Saturday Nation Magazine. I have edited these stories to align them to the narrative style of the blog.
We post Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
