What’s this blog about…Hmmm?
I’m Gina, thanks for visiting my blog! I’m a wife, toddler-mom, craft lover, and major hoarder of yarn & fabric! I love to share my knitting and crochet projects I work on, patterns & roundups (both free & paid), items and apparel for makers, as well as a little DIY and up-cycling!
I created this blog shortly after my little one was born just 3 years ago, along with my Etsy shop, Fibreandfabrics. After relocating to the Albany, Oregon area about 2 years ago, I’m still trying to find a workable space for most of my fabric stash, in addition to my yarn stash. I look forward to sharing more of my fabric finds, and projects in 2017!
When I have a few spare moments, I enjoy designing items & apparel for makers & craft lovers on Zazzle at Shop Craft Love. If you knit, crochet, sew, embroider…or just love crafts and yarn in general you’re sure to find something you like! You can keep up-to-date with my new designs by searching @shopcraftlove on social media outlets like Instagram, Twitter & Facebook!
Where does my passion come from?
My dear grandmother who passed in 2013, was very skilled with knitting and crochet, and I learned to knit at a young age. It wasn’t until later in life that she taught me how to crochet, and have been doing both now ever since! I had the privilege of growing up with my Grandma living in the apartment attached to our house & was thankful to have her help raise me along with my parents. My childhood is filled with such fond memories of my “Gramcrackers” (as I would call her). 🙂
Aside from crafty things… I love technology, video games, web surfing, Photoshop, photography, playing the drums, music, and overall life. Life is good & we are so blessed. My hubby and I are having fun adventuring through parenthood with our 3 year old daughter. Being parents is such an amazing and rewarding experience, and I’m so glad I get the opportunity to be a stay-at-home mom.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy the crafty content here on my blog.
