Upcycle mania!

Fun and whimsical decor can be created from items we normal throw in the trash. One mans trash... Well you get the picture. Recently I pulled out some old bottles and talked my best friend into wrapping them with twine. While he was wrapping I started making embelishments. Crocheted lace, flowers, ribbons and pretty beads, ect. Below are some of the finished one of kind bottles that are now in the shop.

 

In the mail today....

In the mail today was a small package with a double ended crochet hook. A double ended hook is used for a type of Tunisian crochet called Cro-Hook or Cro-Knit that uses two different yarns. It’s a fun and easy technique to learn and I love how this particular type of Tunisian makes stripes from the two colors. I first learned of this technique from a Crochetville post about a belly dancing belt, which then led me on a hunt for videos to add the technique to my repertoire!

To New Beginings!

I have tried a web site for my craft business several times in the past without much luck. Websites tend to require a lot of time and work especially with the hosting sites I have previously tried. With this new format (new to me anyway) on Indiemade I am able to have everything… site, blog, store, galleries ect all in one place. It will still take me a while to get it all fixed up the way I want it but at least it will not take me more time on upkeep than it will to actually craft stuff to put on the website!!!
