Flowers

I re-learned how to crochet a granny-square flower a few days ago, and made a video for my mom and thought I’d share it. I had issues editing/exporting/finding it so, the embed is just the raw footage… You can also click the link and go to my vimeo channel, I made […]

Entrepreneurs

I’ve joined with hundreds of people selling things on Etsy today. I’ve been sewing and preparing things to put up for a while,  and today I officially launched. I have three items up there right now, but I’ll be making more in the days and weeks to come. In the mean […]

unafraid

Often times I find myself feeling like a little kid overwhelmed in a great big world – I don’t think my height helps. I realized lately that more often than not I’ve been living in fear. It’s paralyzing, it’s cowardly, and it’s no fun to live in. I’ve had it with […]

Scarves

In between math and such, I’ve been working on crocheting some scarves. I’d never made one until a few weeks ago when I realized that they were incredibly expensive and I could probably sew one just as well. Yesterday night I finished my 3rd. I think it’s the best one I’ve […]
