I have typed and retyped an opening sentence for this shop countless times. I've tried walking away and coming back to it. Still, I'm not sure how to introduce the type of talent that Crystal, owner of this week's Friday Favorite Crochet Me This
, has. This, my friends, is the type of talent you don't come across normally. Crochet Me This
is a regular treasure trove of high quality, unique, amazingness. Want a hand crocheted sweater? She can do that. A toy? She's got it. A bathing suit? Yep. Hair accessories? Those, too. Earrings? You bet. And I have just scratched the surface. Really, the only way to understand why I am in such awe of this amazing woman is to check out her site yourself
. Get your wallet ready, you are going to want all. the. things. But if you read down to the bottom she may have generously given us a discount share with you (on top of her already amazing prices)!
Tell us a little bit about yourself!
Hi, my name is Crystal and I’m the owner of Crochet me This
. I am a 29 year old mother of 3, 2 year old identical twins Sapphire and Emerald (the gems) and an 8 year old son Torrien. I’ve been with my fiancé for 10 years. I work as a personal trainer/fitness instructor during the day and “hooker” at night.
I started crocheting at the age of 10. I fell in love with the craft after watching my grandmother spend countless hours creating masterpieces from yarn. I started my shop on Etsy about 4 years ago making mainly baby items. I eventually joined the small shop world once I had my twins.
How did you choose the name Crochet Me This?
Crochet Me This came from me making the comment to one of my friends about people inboxing me (before I had an Etsy) can you “crochet me this? Or crochet me that?” So Crochet Me This just stuck!!
How do you decide which designs to introduce?
If you follow my shop you will learn really quickly that there’s no rhythm or rhyme to my madness. I don’t think or plan out drops or releases, I just go with the flow.
What is one of your favorite items in your shop?
My favorite items in my shop are literally all of the “women’s” items. Being a personal trainer I work with so many women with self confidence issues. Knowing that I can create something with my hands that can make a woman who has been stressed all day feel prettier, or a momma who’s been held hostage by her stretch marks feel sexier, brings me so much joy.
What can we expect in 2020 from Crochet Me This?
2020 will bring many changes to CMT. Be on the lookout for more “accessories” 😉
Do you have a favorite quote?
My favorite quote is, “There is no limit to what we as women can accomplish.”
What is one piece of advice you’d give to your younger self if you could go back in time?
One piece of advice that I’ll tell my younger self is to just be YOURSELF. Find people who genuinely love and care about you for YOU and love their asses back!! Lol
