Who is Crafty Pirate?

My name is Thera Joyce, or Crafty Pirate here on the interwebs. My name is actually pronounced "Tera." I really love the spelling of my name, but everyone messes it up. I'm just a fun loving, introverted, eccentric, geeky, kid-at-heart, who wants to share my story/life with the world. Not everyone fits into the same life blueprint, and I'm here to show you that. Being 'normal' is overrated.

I live in sunny Arizona with my boyfriend (of 3 1/2 years) Pat and our cat Keeku. We loving refer to our house as the "Fart House". I'm sure I don't need to explain why.


Sewing and creating are a HUGE part of my life, I'm an artist to the core. I learned to sew at the tender age of 7 (my Mom and Granny taught me). I make EVERYTHING. I'm obsessed with DIY.  I prefer receiving handmade gifts over store bought items. If something is old, I'll refurbish it so I don't have to buy something new.  I up-cycle when I can as well. This is probably the most valuable skill I possess. I can't imagine not being able to fix something if it's broken, make something I saw in a magazine, or give an old piece of furniture new life.

Swagger Savvy Designs (my independent handmade goods label) was born from my love of creating. I focus on crafting one-of-a-kind accessories and clothing for pirates, nerds and those that walk to the beat of their own drum. I'm not a big fan of manufacturing goods, as I believe it takes the quality away. Be assured that if you purchase something from my shop, you'll be highly impressed with the quality and design. I never sell anything I wouldn't wear myself. Check out my shop HERE.



I'm an avid PC Gamer. I adore getting lost in game content, so much so that I feel sad when I have to log off and join the real world again. I spend hours grinding for the perfect gear and I enjoy running dungeons. Transmoging is my favorite thing. I love being able to create the perfect look for my toon. I don't use macros. I never have, probably never will. I like learning to play my spec, and I like knowing when/how to use certain abilities. Call me a shitty gamer if you want, but if you don't know how to play your spec, why bother?

I play a Destruction Warlock in World of Warcraft (she's level 90 and badass). I run mostly dungeons(I call it dungeoning). I prefer dungeons to questing because I like blowing a lot of shit up at once.

I also play a Wizard in Diablo 3 (Paragon level 63). Although I do enjoy Diablo 3, I much prefer MMORPGs because of the ability to customize your character.
