What are some things you keep in mind when crafting for Realms that you feel helps to make you successful? 
 It's all good for the game. Even if you give the new shield/ weapon/ whatever it might be to a veteran player they will most likely hand down their old stuff to a newer player.

What are some of the challenges you face regarding crafting for Realms? 
Space, haha .. Just about every square inch of my two-bay garage was full of weapons or shields at varying levels of completion over the summer

Tell us about a memorable project that you are particularly proud of? 
I made a big mouse/ net trap for a QOH tourney. It was 4ft x 8 ft and when you opened the treasure chest it would snap shut and actually trap a person. I imagine someone has to have photos of videos of it seeing as we had to do a demonstration on stage. 

If someone wanted to get involved in crafting in Realms what advice would you have for them? 
Start small and force your friends to help =)
