My current #wip is making #crochet #grannysquares to help @allychatsofficial with her #grandmajeanswarmup !! In honor of her Grandma Jean, she is currently asking #makers to make crochet granny squares, send them to her and she will make them into blankets to help keep the homeless in Wisconsin warm this winter!! Seeing as I'm originally from #Wisconsin, I knew I had to help! Just using up some scrap yarn and frogging an old project!

Was able to help a fellow yarn crafter get the yarn she needed. She needed a certain dye lot and I knew my Joann store would have it. Our crafting community is the Best!

Bringing back #3factfriday cause it's been a while since y'all have seen my face(well...heres the side of it anyways). Topic: pattern testing & why I love it
💛
1) COMMUNITY. Be it a test for a crochet item or a knit like this beanie I just finished testing for @morthunder , I love being part of this wonderful online band of sisters ( okay brothers too, but not in my sphere of people!) who all share a passion to make & a drive to share that passion with others. It's a great way to make new "friends" & interact with people who GET you & your need to create!
💛
2) CREATIVE BOOST. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut of my own creative thinking. While I design all my own items for #bellascustomcrochets & sometimes sell my patterns, things can get to a point of feeling stale. Making an item someone else dreamed up, & even how they wrote their pattern or formatted it on paper can spark a new idea (never copying!) in me.Trying something out of your ordinary is a great way to get re-inspired! Even if you can't test for someone, it's always a great idea to BUY other maker's patterns: not only to support them but to get your own creative juices flowin!💛
3) EXPOSURE. maybe this one's little selfish but I know that when chosing my own testers I look for people who are going to put pretty pictures of my design out into the world, a sphere of people i might not otherwise reach, & spark them to want to make one too! In testing for someone else i know that if they plan on reposting tester photos that my account may also get some new friends & followers. I guess this is what the business world would call networking? It's good stuff, yo.
💛
What about you guys? Why do you love being a pattern tester?? Or give me any random 3 facts about you, maker related or not, & join the fun! Happy Friday! 💛

I absolutely LOVE seeing you wearing my shirts!! Ahh!! I love making people smile and it makes me smile even bigger, too. I do a happy dance whenever someone places an order, but I get so excited when someone posts a picture because I get to do ANOTHER happy dance! 😁 Wee!!

Thank you @thesleepypeg for sharing this picture! Even though it’s recommended to hang dry, I’m glad to hear your shirt is holding up well even though your husband keeps putting it in the dryer. LOL

Getting the perfect pom is an artform in & of itself, entirely separately from all hook & needle craft. Rarely do I make pieces with yarn pom poms- as much as I do love them- because it can take me up to an hour to get each pom JUST RIGHT not to mention it takes a ton of yarn to get the job done. & I swear, they are never actually perfect. Anybody else, or just me?? From a selling stand point, the pricing would be pretty wild. Props to you ladies who are pom masters. I am not you...
💛
But this test knit for @morthunder was just crying out for some fluffy pom goodness. Unfortunately I won't be able to enjoy this hat for like another two months (FALL, WHERE ARE YOU!) but I can't wait to rock it soon! Stay tuned for finished photos of this lovely mustardy triangley wonder.
💛
Also, I KNIT a hat, guys. What even is going on here...? #texturedtrianglesbeanie

This is me thinking that it's about damn time I made a pair of these for myself... maybe one day. 😂😂😂

I was so thrilled when Morgan of @morthunder contacted me to be part of her massively monumental pattern test undertaking. Last year she made 100 knit hats in 100 days & is now working up to releasing patterns for about half of them! Uhm. Whoa.
.
As much as I adore her fancy colorwork knits (I mean, did you even look at her page. Seriously, do.) I'm glad she offered me this solid colored Textured Triangles Beanie, cause it's definitely more manageable for my novice knitter level! (Although I think it would be really awesome as a black&white color work pattern!)like It'snice to be in the rhythm of knitting again & participating in the knit community!!
Also, is it fall yet? #mustardyellowforever

@stoneylaketextiles look familiar? When I heat pressed it to flatten it out, these fun patterns emerged. If I remember correctly from a while back Emerance was working with UV  dyes. I love how this turned out. Thank you for the fabric. I’m so excited to see what fun things I can make from the “scraps”. .

Hi 👋 ***AUCTION*** item number two from my pal Matt @444_wood_working. The sale of these items will benefit our buddy DomVin @dnr_woodworks in his flood relief effort after big business has given him the shaft. 
This here is a Kcup holder in the shape of Michigan, pronounced mē-chē-gyn in my house. Matt wants to start the bid at $15 for this piece and he will cover the shipping to North America. I know a lot of great makers from my MI, this one can be yours...I also have a feeling we’ll be seeing some of these in the shape of TN pretty soon. 
Bidding ends about this time tomorrow. Please bid in the comments and reply to a bid if you are outbidding. Thanks!

This is my Far❤️
I love what these young people in Moshi, Tanzania do. Very Creative minds with few tools and materials is a formula for ultimate creativity!!!! A couple of times a year I pack up some tools and materials to send over to the club.  I sometimes know what they are in need of but often intuition guides my selection and then their creativity guides their creations.  It is not a premeditated process but a process that is working well for us so far❤️. In the second picture you see the club working with visitors from 🇨🇦. I can not wait to see what they have created.  @pamojatunaweza @heatherhaynesartist @worlds.collide.africa #farandnear #sustainability #makershelpingmakers #kingstonartists #bigup #biglove #handstamping

One year ago today Jessaca at @reclaimedrose offered the opportunity for me to sell out of her store. I’m forever thankful and grateful and humbled by the wisdom and opportunities she has extended to me through her business and her friendship. You deserve all the success in the world Jess, and I hope you know just how utterly blessed I am to know you and work with you. Now everyone, go to Reclaimed Rose and buy all the things! ✨💕

You deserve all the success in the world Jess, and I hope you know just how utterly blessed I am to know you and work with you. Now everyone, go to Reclaimed Rose and buy all the things! ✨💕

It’s been 5 years since the very first Etsy made in Canada and my very first show.  I’ve had so much fun being a part of @etsyteampei and creating these posters/media pieces.  Special shout out to @the_potters_daughter for basically letting me just take over that department ha ha ha - she’s the best team captain! 💕

Glue up for a bench top. You may recall the 2x10 popular I had given to me a week or so ago. It will become a couple of benches. Oh and if you followed my stories yesterday, that project is on standby. I need to get some painter's tape. #farmhousestyle #farmhousebench #makershelpingmakers #woodworker #dowoodworking #woodworkersofinstagram #farmhousedecor
Stocking up on my 4x4 Headbands for market season!! I carry these in adult sizes typically, but I also can do them in custom & baby size- & they make really adorable mommy & me sets!
.
Also, I need some help... I'm not in love with this name, but I'm at a loss for what else to call this design?! I chose 4x4 because it's a reversible headwrap than can be worn 4 different ways on each side, but I'm worried that sounds more like a math problem or a lumber size than an adorable, versatile, earwarming headband...any suggestions??

I was tagged by my buddy @elementscollide to show how I display my jewelry collection. It's embarrassingly big but about 80% handmade from beautiful people like you!! If you see your pieces, tag them!! There are tooooooo many! 😂😂 Um also, that freaking tapestry by @meaganalessio gives me a smile everytime I put on my jewelry in the morning. 😍😍😍

In love with the turnout of this collaboration with @laurellablooms 😍😍!! Megan with @laurellablooms does some AMAZING work with artificial flowers... she put this arrangement together and sent it over to me to add a little touch 😉.. decided to make it double sided by putting the client’s biblical verse request in both English and Spanish... Go like and follow Megan at @laurellablooms and check out her amazing work!

Just in case anyone thinks all I know how to do is make baby blankets at this point...
.
Between personal projects & custom orders I assure you I am still working on market prep for the fall! (Pictured: granny isosceles triangle shawl!)
. 
Not entirely sure how much inventory I should be needing as I am doing a couple new venues this year & a bit earlier in the season than I typically would (Sept/Oct rather than Nov/Dec). After the markets I'm hoping to be able to then put any remaining stock on Etsy before Christmas, but all this is hinged on the arrival of a certain baby lady's & it's just quite hard to focus on anything at all when I think about that! But one way or another, market season is on its way, folks! YOU READY?!

You guys... I am so overwhelmed by your outpouring of support. I cannot believe in just a few short days we were able to raise $540 for the dance team!

These kids work SO hard just to get a spot on the team and I love watching them grow. On behalf of all our dance team family, THANK YOU!! 💕 Much love!

I just wanted to share this quick fix to all the crocheters out there. I’m working on a bulk order and the end was really starting to dig into my had since it’s a short hook. I rolled the end in a couple layers of hot glue and it’s SO MUCH BETTER! I use this hook for 95% of all my amigurumi and I didn’t realize how much it was hindering me to not have a grip on the end. So happy with my idea ❤️ .

Sharing a post from @ChristinasJewelryCreations who got my #pressie today 😊: #HappyMail arrived today from Lora @DivineSpiritCreations.  She was my July match for #HandmadeAndTrade created by Rachel @HandmadeU.  Gorgeous Pyrex earrings! They even arrived numbered and with their own certificate. These earrings were handcrafted from a 1991 dessert plate of Corelle Winter Holly. I told her I do not have pierced ears, so she sent me a pair of clip-ons I can wear during the holiday season. Truly stunning work and I can hardly wait to wear them this season. Thanks so much Lora for sharing your beautiful masterpiece with me. Please follow her, you will not be disappointed. .

Now that it's arrived with my secret partner I can share what I made for this year's @nutmegcollective Christmas in July swap! I designed this custom nesting basket set for fellow #ctmaker Laurie of @homeprepproducts . I didn't want to send her like a hat or something in July, & I wanted it to be a functional as well as fun gift! Think I did okay? Just had to add a foxy little touch! 🦊

Some of my #gymmates had some #ebony they weren't using. So the #gifted it to me. This stuff is HEAVY.

Since I'm #startingfromscratch on the #weddingrings I think I'm going to use this. I think it will show the inlays off better than whatever the lighter wood I was used would. And I think the density will make the rings more durable. Got a couple new #carbonfiber liners cut out. #readytogo

I’ll be honest, some days I wake up and I’m disappointed in the world.  With all of the negativity out there, the selfishness and the heartbreak, it can be hard on the tough days to see the beauty and positivity in the world.  I often say that I think this #woodworkingcommunity has saved me, and I believe that with my whole heart.  Y’all remind me of the good in the world.  You remind me to laugh, mostly at myself.  You help me not take life so seriously, and hot damned y’all make some stunningly beautiful things.

Last week, I was gifted this gorgeous bowl and pen made by THE @seamus7227 and I was lucky enough to be able to give him and his lovey wife a hug.  So this morning, when I walked past this amazing bowl as I was feeling disappointed, it reminded of the good and the beauty out there.  Thank you Seamus and Jennie, y’all made my day the other day, and again today.  Please keep bringing beauty into the world!

I’ll be honest, some days I wake up and I’m disappointed in the world. With all of the negativity out there, the selfishness and the heartbreak, it can be hard on the tough days to see the beauty and positivity in the world. I often say that I think this #woodworkingcommunity  has saved me, and I believe that with my whole heart. Y’all remind me of the good in the world. You remind me to laugh, mostly at myself. You help me not take life so seriously, and hot damned y’all make some stunningly beautiful things. • Last week, I was gifted this gorgeous bowl and pen made by THE @seamus7227 and I was lucky enough to be able to give him and his lovey wife a hug.

Hey there shoppers and fellow makers! I'd love to get your opinion about something. I started my business last winter with just my own website, then in the spring I decided to try Etsy. Etsy has been fairly good and since it was too hard to manage two online shops I decided to convert my website to route to my Etsy shop. Some of you may know about the Etsy fees increase and the different membership options now, that definitely affects costs. In the meantime Instagram shopping has now become an option and I personally feel that's the way things are going. Well in order to have IG shopping you have to have a Facebook store, and here I am again with the idea of managing two different shops, two inventories, etc. I really don't want to do that. So, an option is to have a Shopify store which can link to Facebook and IG. And I THINK I can sync Shopify and Etsy so the inventory updates on both. But Shopify's fees are much more so would it really be worth it? 🤦‍♀️ I am pretty overwhelmed by this decision. What do you think? Do you shop or sell on Shopify? How is it? Do you know if you can sync Etsy and Shopify? If you use IG shopping, how is it? Worth it? I'd really appreciate any feedback!! Thank you!! 💙

PROJECT 1: MAKING MOBILITY
・・・
Our fellow maker in need for the next auction is Jessica Gimarelli (@grimm_artist).
・・・
After a horrific vehicle accident with multiple life-threatening injuries; a stay in the ICU due to internal bleeding, a fractured pelvis/sacrum, broken arm, concussion, and nerve damage. She has had to get 2 plates, over 30 staples down her stomach for the bleeding, 9 screws for the pelvis, and one for the sacrum. Jessica is now wheelchair bound with permanent nerve damage and suffers from chronic pain.
・・・
She has persevered against many odds and is now in need of a vehicle as well as a special accessible foot pedal device to assist her in driving. Let’s all come together as a community to help get Jessica thriving and driving!

Continuing on with the AUCTION for my pal Dom @dnr_woodworks (if you haven’t seen his super sexy maker pose pic, please please please go take a look). We have a cutting board made by my dear friend Chris @jnccustomwoodgrain. He’s a full time dad and maker, how badass is that?! If anyone needs a haircut, his lady friend is a girl barber. 😄
Enough about him, his cutting board is center stage today. I’ll let him comment on the dimensions because I don’t have them. The wood used for this beauty are walnut (of course walnut mfka) padauk, jatoba, maple, mahogany and Palo santo. I liked the description of palo santo so much that I screenshot it and added it to the post. 
Chris will pay shipping to the US and Canada. 🇺🇸🇨🇦 Bidding starts at $50 and bidding should occur here in the comments. If you are outbidding someone, please mention them in your bid comment. Auction will end about this time tomorrow. Thanks in advance.

I had been wanting to try a herringbone wrap for years. Literally!  I always put it off though. After commenting on a fellow creators Earrings I finally took the plunge and tried it out. I wish I would have tried it sooner! Here are the results of my first herringbone wrap. Thank you @arikahs.jewelry for the push to try something new ❤️ #wirewrap #herringbone #agate #paua #handmadeearrings #ymm #sarahreiddesigns #makershelpingmakers

When I saw this graphic by @morganharpernichols, it resonated so deeply within my soul.
Three years ago, I started building this full time business from the ground up with nothing but a pocket full of courage and a ten year old side hustle. Every day was a challenge and an adventure, and even though there was NO USER MANUAL, somehow I figured out a way to make this dining room hobby work into a full time gig.
And through this journey, I’ve tried to be a light and a helping hand to others who have come beside and behind me, and it has brought me so much joy. Thank you for trusting me with your hearts.
Y’all know that I’m planning a crafting retreat down in Austin, Texas in late October. It’s going to be a lovely girls’ weekend of making pretty things, drinking coffee and wine, and road tripping down to @magnolia in Waco.
AND just so you know, chances are crazy good I will be doing a second Austin retreat in the spring.
BUT, what I want to tell you about today is that in January 2019, Deidre of @flohradesign and I will be joining forces to host a Maker Mastermind retreat at @megduerksen ‘s Whatever Craft House in Newton Kansas!
This retreat is specifically designed for makers, and we’re going to dig deep into a LOT of things, both the heart of a maker and the nuts and bolts of running an online small business. Diedre and I are going to share with you all the things that helped us become full time makers and small business owners. Me personally, I am so excited to talk with you about sharing your personal why, building an authentic community, and bringing your craft to your local community.
This four day retreat will also include fun crafting projects from our guest teachers, a little antique shopping, and a whole lot of late night girl time.
We are SO EXCITED to bring this to you! Stay tuned for registration information and more details, k?
