I have been making my own little Cross Stitch patterns from my doodles and sketches for my own personal use forever. I had someone on Instagram ask me where I got my patterns from and then how to get them. I have never even thought about making them avaialable to the public. But I'm all in. I've charting some and I've opened a new Craft Shop on Etsy called Knot Yo Mama's Needle Craft and I've listed some of my designs. I would love to have some stitchers work one up and give me feedback and a snap shot of what it looks like when it's finished. If you are interested just go to the SHOP
and let me know which chart you'd like to try. You can EMAIL ME or send me a convo on etsy and I'll email it you. Thank you so much! OXOX
Just wanted to show you the finished HK pattern :) I turned it into a Big Honkin' Necklace! And I LOVE it! Everyone at work has being dying over it. Major score - I will be making more....I was thinking about offering kits for sale...we'll see!
She has ALWAYS been a shining example of what a colorful, fun, free, celebratory life is. I have admired her since I was little. She has always been on my walls and in my scrap books. She was one of the first women in my Women Entrepreneur Books. She will be missed by so many and I am sad she is no longer on this planet. Here's to a colorful life!
Below, I've put together some collages, this one for my Facebook Cover - feel free to snatch it if you like. xo
I'm Renee-a 38 year old single mother of 3 rock out teenagers! The most important thing to know about me is I LOVE to have fun! Play is the #1 priority in our house.I am Fearlessly Whimsical!
I grew up on a working farm. My birth mother was in prison when I was born and I was adopted by an older retired couple. Being on a real farm as a child was a blast, the animals, the fresh food, the wide open space to run and play...I felt so free :) And I was exposed to sewing, crochet, knitting, canning, quilting and butter churning from day one. I loved sewing and crochet most and I've been sewing non stop since before I started kindergarten...no design school here - this stuff is in my blood!
One of my favorite things about growing up were my cool older cousins! They used to take their concert tees and turn them into tube tops and mini skirts and I always thought they were the coolest garments ever-and I still do. I will make anything that pops into my brain from a tshirt!
We always love treasure hunting in thrift shops, our closets are full of t-shirts and the gems we find that won't fit us? Well, I make rock out garments for you guys.
