Welcome to the weekly Feature and Giveaway! Every Monday, we’ll be featuring a lovely craftsperson, artist, or artisan – and every week you’ll have the chance to win something from their shop!
This week we welcome Lu, from Crocheted Little Things. She makes crocheted jewellery, accessories and cupcakes!
Where do you live?
Niceville, Fl, but was born and lived for 25 years in Italy
In a little hall upstairs LOL
What’s your favourite place in the world, and why?
I lived in Tuscany and fell in love with it…..I hope I can live there forever, so much peace!
Tell us a little bit more about yourself! Your ‘day job’ or business, family, hobbies…
I’m a stay at home mom of 2 wonderful kids! Gabriel is 5 and is language impaired, and I have a 3 yo little girl that it’s just a mini-me!
Crocheting is a real passion for me and now it’s my business, since is giving me the opportunity to save a little money and paying some college course that I’m attending to work in child care facilities.
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Good question and I’m supposed to be able to answer, even tho I’m already grown up…but I don’t know! I discovered a while ago that we’re God’s projects and He knows what to do with me…I should ask him next time I see him 🙂
How did you first get into your craft/art?
I was 9 yo. My mom is a doilie maker and taught me to crochet during summer breaks….I picked it up again during my second pregnancy and I didn’t stop ever since.
What do you make?
What do I make? I make crochet accessories. Right now I’m really into jewelry and fake food items, as well as spa items, but I can make pretty much anything….blankets, doilies, sweaters…you name it and I know how to make them!
What are you most proud of making?
My cupcakes Christmas ornaments for sure……everybody found them adorable and I love making them
What do you like the most/least about selling your wares online?
Taking pictures for sure!! I’m not a photographer and I’ll never be! I’m always tweaking my pictures but my customer’s keep saying my items looks much better in person 🙂
My kids, eating pasta and pizza. about selling on line? meeting new people, too funny!
People lies. Can’t stand it! Tell me the truth, I can handle it!
What’s your favourite word?
Love…specially when it comes out of my children mouth.
If you could sum yourself or your work up in one sentence, it would say:
I think I’m very sensitive and whimsical and my items reflect that too.
