Recently a repeat customer asked me to make a custom order for her. I was happily surprised when I realized that she had uncovered a unique new item for my shop and for everyone else too. Her custom order came with a fun background. My customer said that she wanted a wine glass base so her guests knew how to identify their wine glass. She wanted to offer an elegant way to do this to avoid having people mistakenly drinking from someone else’s glass. Voila! This project idea was born!
This is a smart, beautiful gift idea for Mom, housewarming, newly Weds, etc. I also think these would be beautiful for a wedding table, adorned with some extras and in white or light color yarn.
These warmer months are perfect to start planning your DIY projects and to get them started! I love to Crochet and knit so after a great deal of thought I decided to start dying my yarn for my projects. The color combinations were so unique and beautiful that I decided to open an Etsy shop to just sell hand dyed yarn. I truly think that the more thought I put into the design the better my final project result will be
Check out my yarn shop. Everything is hand dyed by me with a lot of care and attention to detail. Every yarn is so beautiful and unique! In future posts I will share my process too!
YarnByAna is the name of my yarn shop. This speckled yarn is one of my favorites!
I am a maker, like many out there. I started my home business working with my hands a few years ago.
My Etsy shop was born because I wanted a place to honor my Mom. She taught me crochet at age 10. It has stayed with me since then. She’s passed now, but the most beautiful memories are still with me. We used to share in a project together.We laughed and spent that quality time together.
New beautiful, handmade, spring and summer inspired tops for teens in my shop.
Soon we’ll be putting our coats away and reaching out for shorts and t-shirts. I am ready to do just that! So I started working on these tops and little by little I will definitely continue to be inspired by the upcoming lovely warmer seasons.
How much do I miss long walks and relaxing days at the beach! These tops are inspired by my life as a child and young adult by the sea side. There are more tops in my shop like this but this one is my favorite! I am adding some additional photos with some of the other tops here as well.
I will definitely get more material for other fun creations and designs. I just can’t wait! 🙂
Typically when I hear tie dye I imagine a mix of bright yellow, green and red on shirts. Not that it’s not fun, but I experimented designing other tie dye accessories and started with hair accessories. Then I thought of solid color tie dye and/or family of colors in tie dye, and I loved the results!
Here are some pictures. You may click on them for more information. Enjoy!
Every time I look for inspiration I shop for yarn. Fortunately this time I had the opportunity to find this beautiful specialty yarn! Soon I will be designing fall and winter accessories. This yarn comes from Germany and Italy. I will be mixing them for fun color-texture combination. My goal is to end with very unique, soft, delicate, beautiful items to list in my Etsy shop.
Winter is here! No doubt! Heavy snow in the mountains and low temperatures. With all that comes winter fashion, which I love!
I have just created new, beautiful hats in both slouchy oversize and Pom Pom styles for baby, kids, teens and adults. This season sparks my creativity. As usual, I start with beautiful yarn choices in different color combinations. Don’t miss it!
My shop offers handmade unique seasonal items handmade by myself using crochet, knitting and mixing various technique and artistic inspiration. My passion for the arts and helping a cause is also present in my shop. For example, all proceedings from this Mandala artwork sales goes out to fund SharingForKids.org, an organization helping very poor children receive cancer and heart disease related treatment in Cartagena, Colombia.
About the artist:
“Lucia is the artist behind this Heart Mandala. Her beautiful process is to take a Mandala and recreate it while telling us a story through her original use of a variety of unique coloring schemes. By day, Lucia is a psychologist and her experience is that working on Mandala pencil art gives her moments of calm, relaxation, reflection and peace. She also shares that looking upon the finished art is also a great source of peace and quiet.”
