Thoughts and New Items

I love to crochet, yet somehow I always forget I do. I can go through months without crocheting and be in a weird funk and when I start crocheting again it disappears. I cut myself off from my own creativity - what is up with that? I think apart of it is not allowing myself to call myself an artist...like I am unworthy of that title. I studied acting for years, was on stage, crocheted as a hobby, but since I have not been acting or trying to pursue Hollywood (no way, no how) I need a creative outlet. It's that simple.

I am a creative person. I am an artist.

Crocheting is just so relaxing and nostalgic to me. It reminds me of my dad's girlfriend; she has been my mama since I was 2. It wasn't until the end of high school and my college years that I started getting more and more closer to her. And we would bond by crocheting. She walked me through granny squares and motifs and gave me good tips and always supplies me with extra hooks and yarn :). Whenever I crochet I think of her and miss her. I live in Southern Cali while they live up north and I won't be seeing them for the holidays this year. So crocheting makes me feel closer to her.

It wasn't until last year I started to seriously consider selling and sharing my work. I love to crochet gifts for my friends and family, but I though I would try my luck with Etsy. However, so many people sell their crochet items already, it is so hard to stand out amidst the beanies and scarves. I have struggled finding my niche with my art, but I feel I have finally found it. 

I am so spiritually inclined and with the evolution of my blog here, I want to make crochet items with spirit at the center of it all. I am in the middle of designing more dream catchers, moon phase bags, tarot/rune bags and more. Not to mention more courses and e-books and other soul works. I am excited for the upcoming year and new chapter of Moondaughter.

With all of that being said, I am finally stocking crochet items in my shop
I am also open to custom orders and requests! Just convo me on Etsy :)

Inspirations: Catch a Dream

Ever so often I feel it is very necessary to post up some pictures that I find inspiring for my soul and imagination. 

I have a humble little shop on Etsy where I crochet. And I have been itching and dreaming of crocheting some dream catchers, and I think I need to make this a reality! As you can see from my hand drawn "moon catcher" on my header, I love dream catchers so here are some inspirations of mine:


The oh-so-lovely Laura over at Violet Bella makes thee most beautiful upcycled doily dream catchers over at her shop Roots and Feathers. This one is named Shae :) I love seeing her beautiful designs, and I will need to snag one for myself one day! I live over at her shop anyway!


I love the gem in the middle! Such a beautiful addition. You can find this dream catcher of many over at this Etsy shop.

The three pictures below, I found on Weheartit, so I do not know the actual sources . If you do, let me know!

Also, over at Laura's blog she wrote a lovely post about other inspiring artisans, go check it out :)

Love and Blessings,
