Life is full of exciting twists and turns – many of which have very little to do with our plans or intentions.
My store, for example, at the moment only offers PDF crochet patterns. Before I got pregnant with Bubba, I used to sell resin and wire bobbin lace jewelry, too. But I never really desired to sell finished crochet items there. For one, I get bored easily, and making the same thing over and over would certainly take away from the joy crocheting otherwise brings me. Plus, I am a slow crocheter. And now with Bubba, I am even slower! Crochet items on Etsy are so competitively priced that I would either have to be the most expensive seller, or make peace with the fact that when it’s all said and done (or, crocheted and shipped), I made about 50 cents an hour.
So it was kind of peculiar when I got contacted twice in the last week with two separate custom crochet requests. So peculiar, in fact, that I excitedly agreed. To both.
One order is already with it’s new owner down in sunny Florida. I shipped it so fast I forgot to even take a real photo – all I have are these two cell phone snapshots.
The second order is larger and I am still working on it. It consists of six frames – two in teal, and four in grey. I instantly fell in love with this colour combination, and can’t wait to see all of the frames together. Here’s a sneak peek – I have finished two of the frames.
Patterns for all these crochet picture frames are available in a super bundle of 12 designs in my jakigu.com shop.

These are adorable. I love the teal and grey.
