April Monthly Meet a Maker (MMAM): Lee Narkis

Our Monthly Meet a Maker series is bittersweet - exciting to be able to share a new maker with you all again, but also surprising at how fast this year is flying by! With Spring in full bloom and the warmer and brighter colors making an appearance, it's such a cheerful time of year.  THE BACKGROUND... Every so often, I am honored to be a moderator for the @CraftAsTherapy account on Instagram, and this past time, I stumbled upon gorgeous crocheted necklaces by Lee Narkis. I fell in love immediately, due to their delicate features PLUS the crocheted touch on each necklace. So, without further ado, welcome our April Maker: Lee Narkis. Lee grew up in a world of color,...

Monthly Meet a Maker (MMAM): The Yarn Mamas

It's already that time again to feature another maker in our Meet a Maker series! This past month, I reached out to Krista from The Yarn Mamas for a feature because I am in love with her apparel. Her tanks, tees, totes, and hoodies have been popping up everywhere and to my realization, I am severely lacking in my fiber related apparel.  But - let me tell you why Krista is actually super awesome: she's an animal lover, with three rescued dogs (and three kids!), and donates a portion of each sale back to animal rescue. If you're following me on Instagram, you may have seen my two dogs pop up here and there - and both are rescues. I...

Monthly Meet a Maker (MMAM): Lunar Knits by Lori

Another month, another maker! Every month this year, we'll be interviewing our current maker crush and sharing a giveaway with you. Join me in welcoming our second Meet a Maker guest, Lori from LunarKnitsbyLori. I found Lori when I was on the hunt for handmade items to go in our Love | BLACK BOX. I stumbled upon her Faux Fur Pom Poms that I knew would match perfectly with our super bulky "Fiercely Red" yarn featured in the box. There are many faux fur pom pom makers out there, but what lead me to choosing Lori was her incredibly fast response time and professionalism. We hit it off right away, and now her Chinchilla Pom Poms (my personal favorite) are included in our first...

Monthly Meet a Maker (MMAM): That Crafty Little Fox

Welcome to our first ongoing series, Monthly Meet a Maker (MMAM). Every month, I'll be interviewing a fellow maker that has caught my eye (whether because of their style, their product, or their creativity) and sharing a little bit about them with you. Bonus, I'll try to include a giveaway by each maker for every month. JUMP to this month's Giveaway! Our first MMAM is Jessica from That Crafty Little Fox. I have been on the hunt for a llama/alpaca print project bag for a while (Emperor's New Groove, and also the obivous love of fiber animals), but always came home without. Through a @fibreshare post, I caught a glimpse of Jessica's work, saw the Llama Party Project Bag, and had to have...
