H everyone!! I hope the summer is treating everyone well!!

Thought I'd share this amazing giveaway with you all!! Its for a Sharp Crochet Hook and the Crochet Edging Handbook!! You can find it here! You can also find the blog button on the right hand side of this page! This giveaway is open to the US and Canada and ends August 23, 2012!! 

I have always wanted to try it and eventually will own one! I plan on doing many things with it but I really want to add a crocheted border around my tags for my store! I think it would be a neat and personalized way of saying 'thank you' to my buyers!!

So, I've entered but if you love to crochet as much as I do, I encourage you to enter!! If you win, let me know how you like it!! If you already have it, feel free to leave a post with examples of your projects!!

First Pattern Up For Sale!

Hi Everyone!!

You know that I love to crochet, obviously! And I'll admit I'm a bit obsessed! Recently I started designing a few of my own patterns. After I was satisfied with how I wanted it to look, I sent it to testers. With it back in my hands; tested, approved and tweaked for perfection..... It is now released!!

You can find it on Ravelry here.

I have four more patterns in the writing/testing process as well as several items sketched out in a notebook! I'm very excited in this new venture! For every pattern I release, it will go on pre-sale for the first 2 days as well as a giveaway! Be sure to become a follower on here and 'like' me on Facebook.

Thanks for reading!!

My Husband has my Hooks!!

We joke in my house that my husband should learn how to crochet because we would be able to spend more time together. I crochet whenever I get the chance and sometimes pass up watching a movie or some other 'together' activity just to crochet! I have so many 'work in progresses' that, when I have the time, I want to finish... or start something completely new!

My husband will probably NEVER learn how to crochet BUT this weekend I got him to 'use' my hooks for about 20 minutes!! I have the light up hooks for crocheting in low light. I brought them out by the fire after having s'mores and decided I was going to try something. Since I love photography as well and my SLR camera allows for long shutter speeds, I've decided to 'draw with light,' a technique that I've read about. This is great for sparklers but my hooks were my substitute!

After doing my first 'drawing' with light, and my husband seeing the results, he said it was his turn! The rest is history!! I finally got him to use my hooks!! Never thought it would be like that though!!
My husband on the left, me on the right!
This is actually my husband running around with my hooks!

Hope you enjoyed!!

What do you want to see?

Hello friends!!!

Summer is just around the corner! And I mean just!! Tomorrow will be my last full day of work until a week or two before school starts up again! I might have one more short day but other than that, my summer will be spent with my children and my hook for most of the day!! I can't wait to start on new projects, finish old projects and get custom orders!!

If there is anything specific you want in the Photo Jewelry Etsy Store, feel free to comment below, email me or leave me a post on Facebook.

I love creating new things! And even if I don't own the pattern you want, contact me and we can work out a reasonable arrangement!!

Please don't forget~ I'm co-writing a crafting, hobby and more blog at KiKi Love Creations... some great new things coming!!! And we hope to bring our readers more involved! Come join us so you don't miss it!

Welcome to Photo Jewelry: Photography Props!!

PhotoJewelryProps Etsy Store
Photo Jewelry on Facebook

I have a passion for creating crochet photography props! I love seeing a skein of yarn transform into something, whether its a hat, headband, purse or any other item my hook leads me to. And I LOVE to see my items on precious babies! Thought newborn crochet props are my favorite to make, I am expanding to everyday wear as well as many other items.

In the future, whether near or far, I would like to start dying cheesecloth and adding other props to my store. But that isn't an immediate goal. This summer I plan make an item from almost each of my patterns! Right now I own a few hundred and still have only made 30-40 of them, or at least that's what it seems like.

A bit about myself:
I'm a mother of two boys and wife to a wonderful husband! I love spending time with my children and husband but when I need a little 'me' time, I crochet! I also love photography. I took my two favorite hobbies and made it into 'Photo Jewelry!' I work for the local school district so during the school months, I have less time to work on projects but summer lets me do a lot more. No matter the season though, I always welcome custom orders!

And I love making new things!! If you find something you like and its not a pattern I already own, I welcome the challenge!

I also co-write a crafting blog called KiKi Love Creations, please feel free to come check out what we're all about! I promise that if you love any crafts, you'll find something fun at KLC!!!
