***************************************************************************************************************************************

For as long as I can remember I always had a fascination with creating things, be it jewelry, clothing or something that doesn’t exactly resemble anything. I believe full-heartedly that I got my crafting “gene” from my Grandmother, Nana and Mother, they nurtured the creative side I possessed and encouraged me to go for what I dream of. If I wanted to create a purple horse with green stripes, by the gods, I would create a purple horse with green stripes. They taught me my imagination is my most unique and powerful tool and it’s something that has aided my love of crafts for years to come.

I opened my store “Trisha’s little Craftings” back in June 2011, thanks to Storenvy’s fee-free store fronts and though my business has been slow it has not deterred me from putting my dreams into a reality. I want to share my unique jewelry and crocheting style with the world, sharing of a culture and of a lifestyle. Both my main crafts (crochet and macramé) I picked up in my teen years, I was taught to crochet at a younger age, when I was visiting my Nana but I had no need to crochet when I was younger. Both were a way to deal with stress at the time, high school is never easy, and I found I enjoyed both. Crochet allowed me to make blankets, mitts, hats for the warmth I needed in the winter months and macramé allowed me to make unique pieces of jewelry that no one else in my classes had. Now, with micro-macramé growing in popularity with friendship bracelets it gives me a chance to share a new generation of weaving with the world.

Check out my store’s Facebook Page! help me reach 50 likes and be entered into a draw for a custom Peruvian Wave bracelet.

You can talk to Trish on Twitter too!

Now, go give Trish some love!!!

Thank you for sharing your unique talent and beautiful work with us, Trish!
