Frustrated!

I started this blog to showcase my crocheted creations but my tablet is not allowing me to upload my pictures for you! I discovered last night that I have 10 MGs of free storage on Propack Cloud storage so I thought my problem was solved! Nope. Now I am concerned that if I buy a micro SD card I am going to have the same problem! We shall see…

Meanwhile, I have just started amigurumi. Which is a Japanese art form where you crochet animals, dolls and some people even make crocheted food! You use a very small crochet hook and usually a thiner yarn, like dk which means a double knit strand of yarn. I found that using regular aluminum crochet hooks, my hand starts to hurt! I found a great solution courtesy of Janey at the Dabbles and Babbles blog. She used polymer clay to make custom handles on her crochet hooks. Well, I used her excellent instructions and made some custom handles of my own! I really wish I could upload pictures to show you, but I am not able to right now.

When I finished the crochet hook handles, I was thinking “what do I do with the rest of the polymer clay I bought?”. I did a few searches and found some great videos and picture tutorials of what people are creating out of polymer clay! I have discovered canes. Canes are a two dimensional picture in a three dimensional cylinder. Then you take slices of that cylinder to make beads and many other things. Thanks to Kelly Donavon at knittingandthings.com I made a beautiful lace cane that I am going to use to create a butterfly pendant! Uh-oh…I think I may have a new addiction on my hands! At least I can split my time between crochet and polymer clay. Blessings!

Why I chose to blog.

HI! I am a mom with grown children. I was a Registered Nurse for 14 years. I wanted to do something that wasn’t always life or death.

I discovered crochet and it turns out I have a talent for it. I started this blog to give others inspiration. If you a retired or can’t work anymore you might have a natural ability to do something artistic with your hands. It might not be knitting or crochet, but you might have a knack for polymer clay art or needlepoint. After so many years rushing about, I feel that we have to do something to give out life meaning. Mine just happens to be crochet. I wanted to share with people what I have made. Truthfully, I want you to buy my handmade crochet items. I am going to be opening an Etsy shop and you will be able to purchase what I showcase here. I will also take custom orders from you! Yes! You can contact me and we can discuss size and materials you would like your personalized item to be made from. My email address is cabincrochetcreations@gmail.com! Everyone have a blessed day!
