30-Day Project Challenge: Day 1

Month long crochet projects aren't for me. Seriously. We all started crocheting afghans and scarves at one point, but at some point, we are drawn towards other things. More awesome things. :)  The point of this post is I want to do 30 days of projects where I create something new to me. Using patterns or ideas in my head. I'll post my daily creation on Instagram and here on the blog.  Today's creation was a tiny bouquet. I found the pattern on Ravelry and modified a bit to create crochet stems. See you tomorrow!

Last night's Shoot

It's been a few years since I've enjoyed being in front of the camera. Seriously. I won't blame it on motherhood, or a changed body. There's just been a shift in my level of interest, nothing more than that. But I love love love when I have the opportunity to photograph my little one. Especially when she's on it - she can't be stopped!  She's so enthusiastic and lights up as soon as set up begins. It's too cute. You will find that she models for most of my infant and toddler creations - the latest beanie the Double Pom Hat for the...

Dope Crochet Patterns

This past weekend was awesome, it just felt so good! I was able to relax, be creative, bond with family, and just tick so many things of my to-do list. I'm doing holidays completely stress-free from now on! Okay, okay. I digress. I was actually writing this post to share some great news with y'all!  For those who know my story, an older cousin taught me how to crochet during my summer vacation many years ago (ha!). Once I returned home, I had to utilize books and patterns to continue to learn new stitches and designs. Pattern reading and writing...

Yarn Bomb or Nah?

Yarn Bomb or Nah?

Y'all know me. You know that Dope Crochet was born out of something I just love to do. I never thought I would see the success and support I've received after deciding to make it a business. Blessed is what I am. Earlier this month, I received a text message from a friend who was approached by a major company in need of yarn bomb work for a national commercial. Wait a minute, whaaaat? I had to look at the text a couple of times before it really set in. Talk about a humbling, life-changing moment - I felt so blessed...

The Dojo

This blog life is growing on me, y'all! Thank you for your patience - your girl is working on it!  So much to share...where should I begin?! Ah, yes! The Dojo.  The Dojo is a project I recently launched with two sister-friends of mine. We had our first squad photo shoot a while back and recently received a dope feature from our crazy-talented photographer, Leandra Blei. She's incredible at what she does - I rarely enjoying stepping in front of the camera and she made me feel so at ease. She's also really affordable so work with her NOW before...
