Random sharing time #justbecause
- this morning I woke up and turned off the outside lights to our place. 💡 It’s a habit now and I usually don’t forget it. I’m grateful for my parents - for giving us chores and responsibilities. As a kid it wasn’t fun waking up at 6am to turn off the lights, check on the dogs etc etc but as an adult I know the importance of good housekeeping habits. I’m grateful for my #goodlyparents
as it snows here on the east coast, i thought it appropriate to share this photo taken sometime over the summer with my hoop collection. i actually looooove snow and pretty excited about the winter wonderland that might take place this weekend. anyone else a lover of snow? ❄️
Hope you a lovely Friday night. 🐉 Just a little message about my DMs, I know there are pending messages and I have not replied for a while, so I will get back to all of you as soon as possible. Thank you!
Желаю Вам уютного пятничного вечера и всех православных поздравляю с Крещением. Кто будет окунаться? Очень хотелось бы конечно, однажды ,очень давно я окуналась в реке в ночь на 18/19 января, тогда почувствовала особое обновление в себе и здоровье стало крепче, ощущения непередoваемые 💜
Р.S. маленькое сообщение насчет директа -у меня накопилось много неотвеченных сообщений, в течении следующей недели отвечу всем, спасибо за Ваше терпение 🌸
There are some pretty slow days on my Etsy, but Christmas was crazy! And it freaked me out because I didn’t think there was any way it would be like that after the holidays. Well yesterday I had my most sales in one day on Etsy ever! All the bee keychains sold out plus stickers and some hoops. And honestly, like 2 of the sales came from Instagram. Most of them were from other places including my email list and just...etsy! So to my handmade business friends using Instagram: don’t be discouraged when you’re not getting any sales on your shop from Instagram. Instagram is a place to introduce yourself to the world and give updates and such but don’t let it take over and be the only way you market! I’m learning this lesson right now. I hadn’t sent out a new email newsletter in awhile and it was a source of some of my sales yesterday after I sent it. Some of you have also been asking me how to set up an Etsy, and I deeply recommend @merriweatherc
. I’ve done my fair share of listening to other podcasts and reading so much about handmade business and I can tell you hers is the best. It’s no fluff and it has all worked. 🤷🏻♀️ I’m still trying to figure this whole thing out and I’m so thankful for all the handmade makers and small business people out there doing it too.

I really loved the softness of this embroidery of Noora and William (from the Norwegian series Skam) embracing. I think once I have completed my next piece (a commission) I’m going to work on a few more pieces like this. #skam #noorhelm #noorhelmedit #nooraandwilliam

We interrupt this normally knitty feed for a quick embroidery break! 〰️ I’m pretty hooked - or maybe “needled”? It’s so much fun experimenting with stitches, but like my knitted creations I wanted to focus on simplicity rather than something intricate. I also wanted to sew something meaningful, positive and fun, and what’s more awesome than boobs? 🍈🍈
Body positivity and empowerment are extremely important in this age of social networks and that constant pressure to be perfect. We come in all shapes and sizes and our bodies change through time, but we need to embrace and be proud of who we are, as difficult as that can be sometimes.
Support all the boobs!
Carving out time for one little project 🐾
Summer summer is coming ! 🍍 I can now share my finished pineapple piece as the person it was for received it ♥️ This piece is available on my Etsy to me made on order with the name you want instead of the ‘Hello’ ✂️ Link in bio! Made with @anchorcrafting
What are your creative goals? Mine would be to make fiber art as original, beautiful, and relatable as Mary Cassatt's body of work, which is astounding. Did you know she created a massive number of original prints, made start to finish by her own hands, exactly because they were so much more affordable than her paintings? Cassatt captured the souls of ordinary moments and shared them with ordinary people, expressing all the while that both are, in fact, filled with beauty, individuality, and purpose.

One of the Christmas gifts I made for my aunt this year! She got a beautiful golden retriever puppy a few years ago named Sadie, and she’s the sweetest thing! I wanted to do something cute and simple for her, and she absolutely loved it. Now I just need to get a dog too so they can be best friends...🐶🐶
