Crafty Deliciousness

I'm pretty sure I get my crafty creative gene from my mother. She has a passion for knitting, crocheting and sewing. And she's pretty damn good at it. Just look at this GOR-GE-OUS blanket she made for Mia!!! The colors are perfect, of course. And it's so soft. I absolutely love it!
My sister and I had been on her for awhile to open a little shop on Etsy. She's retired now and we thought it would be a nice way to supplement her income. Plus... her talent is totally Made-Of-Awesome. Well, she finally did! And she has some super cute things in her store. She makes just about anything from baby shoes, scarves and sweaters to different kinds of photo props. But her big thing lately has been making hats. She loves her some hats.

You guys know Stefanie from Ni Hao Y'all? And you've probably seen her adorable children? Well, mom decided to participate in Stefanie's 30 Days of Giveaways project in order to generate some interest in her store. She offered up a whole box of funky hats. But Stef's kids fell in love with the hats instead. So outta the kindness of her heart.... my mom decided she wanted the kids to just keep 'em. In exchange for cute pics of the models, of course. Check them out here. Totally adorable, right? The kids and the hats! I love that sock monkey. I think that's my fave. Although the black and white with the hot pink flower is so my style, too. Oh geez...maybe I need one of each. LOL!

Sorry ...no chance of winning one but you can check out Mom's shop to place an order. I think she's now planning something else to send Stefanie for the giveaway. I'll let y'all know when I find out what it is and what day it's up.

Mom also sews like nobody's business. Her granddaughters have all been blessed with sweet little twirly skirts and dresses. I already have several requests in for Mia when we figure out her size. ;) Mom made curtains for several rooms in my house. Growing up we had handmade Halloween costumes that were the envy of all the other trick-or-treaters. She even made the bridesmaid dresses for my BFF's wedding many years ago. So I'm really hoping she opens up her Etsy shop to some sewing projects as well at some point.

I already have a pair of crocheted little Ugg type boots on reserve. Oh and a pair of crocheted Mary Janes. Gawd are they cute! Wait til ya see.....

So go check out my mom's Etsy shop called
and tell her you're a friend of mine if you place an order.

Aw, your mom's stuff is AWESOME!

Donna said...

I love it! All of it! Every single little knitted and crocheted stitch of it! My mom used to do this amazing stuff too but, sadly, she left us much too early (and before she could teach me how to do it).

Does your mom do special orders? Gosh, I sure hope so as I've been searching high and low and far and wide for a knitted poncho for my girls. Of course I'll pay for it and I'll also give her some cute pics of my sweeties wearing their ponchos and I'll also link to her store on my blog!

Please??

HEY, i LOVE THE BLACK HAT WITH THE HOT PINK FLOWER!!!

Btw, to get the widget, have Mom sign in to Etsy. She'll have to go to the promote section, then mini etsy. She can create the widget and give you the html code to put into a "gadget" on your layout page. Got it? Or wait, how about copy and paste this and try it:

Darn, never mind. I'll email it.

So.....what are you saying, Carla? You want one of those with the Hot Pink Flower? Or do you want 2 of those? I feel kinda bad because I sold their Sock Monkeys!

BTW, their Christmas outfits are TOTALLY done if you want to come get.

Mom aka Grandma said...

To Donna,

Yes, I do custom orders....just ask Krista! She has custom curtains....several times over! LOL! I would be happy to do ponchos for your girls, you can contact me thru my Etsy store or you can email me at jazmyn1006@yahoo.com

I so love that blanket. It is beautiful and the colors match Mia's room fantastically.

Your mom has some great talent. You are very lucky to have a mom that has helped you deck out Mia's room.

Beautiful. I love the flower hat and the sock monkey. Does your mom ship overseas?

Mom aka Grandma said...

Lindsay, I usually offer free shipping, but I would have to charge for overseas shipping, but yes, I will ship overseas for Krista's friends!
