Hand Crocheted Bag Give Away

AND THE WINNER IS:
THAETER7!
CONGRATULATIONS!!

My name is Sherri. I live in Delaware, I started crocheting years ago, oh I would say about 30 years ago. I had just gotten married. And my mother was crocheting an afghan. I had her show me how she done that, and from then on these fingers have not stopped. I have 3 kids that I made blankets for when they were 2 years old.
They cherished them, my oldest is now 32 and my youngest is 23, and they all 3 still have their blankets. Now I have 9 grandchildren that I have made blankies for. When they were first born, I made a little baby blanket for them and when they turn 2 years old, for their birthday I make them a big blankie. I have always made clothing and other things also. I have also always loved creating my own patterns rather than using other patterns. Or sometimes, I take a basic idea and change it up just to make it my own. Although, I do use patterns for a lot of things. I have recently started making purses, which are my own creations without a pattern, which I am loving very much. I believe that crocheting and crafting is just something that I was born to do, with the help of my mom being so crafty herself, she was always making something. Anyways here I am now also. And loving every minute of it.

My grandkids all call me Grammie. When I
decided to create my online shop, I had my oldest granddaughter here with me. I had in my mind that I wanted to call my shop “The Crafty Cabana”. But it sounded alittle boring to me. I wanted to make it a little different. So I changed the “C” to a “K” My Grandaughter, who I thought, was paying no attention to me blurted out “Grammie’s Krafty Kabana”. It hit me right then and there, that is what I am going to call my shop. It has stuck ever since.

I have been selling online for about 2 years now. It has been very time consuming, but on the other hand, it has been very rewarding. It is rewarding not only in sales, but also in creating and meeting all the new and wonderful people out there, that love creating new and wonderful handmade merchandise. Crocheting relaxes my mind.

I am very passionate about crocheting, although I do love other crafts and woodwork. I guess I would say my first passion is family and friends, then crocheting and woodwork. I do have an addiction though, I love purses. So my newest addiction is crocheting purses. Baby items and kitchen items are also a lot of fun to make. I make a variety of items for my store, anything from baby blankets to kitchen and bath accessories to games and toys. Selling online is exciting, but sometimes when I make a handmade item, it is hard to part with.

I would have to say that my favorite online shops are those that create lovely jewelry and handmade clothing and accessories. Although there are many very talented and creative people, I tend to gear towards those that I can sense have put a lot of time and passion into their work.

I would like to invite everyone to visit my blog. I don’t only blog about my shop, but love to boast about others selling online. Sometimes I have free recipes, puzzles, news articles, or something that just seems very fascinating to me. Visit my blog at www.chiffonsherri.blogspot.com

Happy crafting and creating to everyone.
