I am going to be honest and say this……I have neglected this page too much. I need to set a goal to post at least one thing a week, if not more. Whether it be crochet related or not. I am a huge crafter of many talents but my main talent lies with crochet and clay work.
I would love to get into refinishing furniture to go into my home but I don’t have all of the necessary tools for that trade.
I love to paint, crochet, and turn useless items into something spectacular and useful.
So my goal is to post once a week at least of the things I am doing in detail. 🙂
Lets see how much interaction I have here with a question. I am going to be getting ready this month for some craft shows that are coming up but I need inventory. So what are some things that are a must have at a craft show for a crochet business? Please post your comments and let me know what you think!
We’ve got almost THIRTY patterns collected here for you this week! Most of them are BRAND NEW, with a few updated favorites included. A couple of months ago, several of the Mad Mad Makers decided it would be awesomely fun … Continue reading →
This is what I have been up to the past few weeks. I am definitely getting better and starting to enjoy making them since I have a system set up to where I am not doing everything all in one … Continue reading →
Hello everyone! No I haven’t forgotten about you guys! I have been super busy with baseball season getting underway, Easter (which is now passed), trying to make new things, and keeping up with all my orders, I does not feel like a have a ton of orders, but it is just enough to keep me slightly busy. On the other hand I am getting an urge to make new items all of the time! Since I started playing with polymer clay I get so excited about finding tutorials and new ideas of things to make with the clay so that I can put those new things onto the crochet hooks! I feel fortunate that the clay caning process has come second nature to me. I honestly feel that I am able to do anything as long as I take my time and don’t rush anything!
Here are some pictures of my canes that I have recently made and the hubster is excited that I have made them………….
Along with the canes that I just showed you I also have some new items that I have made and are ready to be shipped out today! Be sure to visit my Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/babysinspiration to purchase any of these hooks!
I just wanted to say that ever since I have started this blog I have been sincerely committed to help out anyone my new knowledge that I have obtained from many hours of reading and asking fellow Mad Mad Makers how they did what I needed to get done, I feel accomplished! I LOVE helping out others when I can! I am a very artistic person and when I have the chance to do something for some who truly appreciates what I do for them I am in heaven! There are too many people out there these days that have had everything handed to them. Then they expect you to hand over your items that you have spent many hours and time on for free! It erks me when I have to deal with people like that. But with my new friends over at the Mad Mad Me Network, I have learned that I need to stand up for what I do and not let anyone depreciate the value of my time and effort to create one of a kind pieces just because they want something for free or expect it to be free!
On a lighter note! I get to play in some clay tomorrow with my cousin Rachel! She also loves to crochet and has her own Facebook shop! I have introduced her to her new love of clay! I just bought a pasta press and I was hoping that it would be in by today so that we could practice making canes together. 2 heads are always better than one! But unfortunately it didn’t come so I am guessing we will have to make another date to practice with the canes! Oh well practice makes money, Right? lol
Here are some pics of what I have been doing today…..feel free to comment and let me know what you think!!
