Reopening My Etsy Shop: Welcome to KER Creations Studio

Just Me Blogging

On June 15th, I decided to take on a new project and reopen my Etsy Shop. I originally opened this shop a year ago and have only had 2 or 3 sales. So, I decided to shut it down for awhile. However, ever since I started my blog and got more familiar with Instagram, advertising and algorithms… I decided to give my shop another chance.

The last time I opened my shop it was just a variety of different hand knit and crocheted items. However, this time I decided to give my shop a purpose and to solely focus on hand knit and crocheted baby items. I first started with creating baby hats, but have now grown into making headbands, blankets, and even hats for mom and baby. I have learned how to advertise via Instagram and Pintrest, and have had quite a few more sales.

If you are interested in purchasing one of my items…. check out my shop below.

Redecorating My Home Office

Home Decor, Just Me Blogging, Life After Miscarriage

There’s just something truly satisfying about organizing and redecorating. This summer since I have had the opportunity to relax and stay home, I have been extremely motivated to organize and redecorate my whole apartment. One of the very first rooms I tackled this summer was my spare room.

My spare room or second bedroom has always kind of been a storage room, but this summer I wanted to turn it into my home office. Before redecorating my home office, I decided not to take any before pictures. It’s not because there wasn’t a huge transformation, but rather I just didn’t feel like showing the whole world my clutter room.


I am very excited about how my office turned out.

I reorganized my desk, put up a bulletin board, and opened up this space to not only make it positive but productive.

I hung twinkle lights under my windowsill and above my desk. I find this calming and comforting. I placed my metal chair and ottoman in the corner for a place to write and blog.

On top of my filing cabinet I have a blessings box. This was a bridal shower gift given to me by my bestie Alli. When Charles and I have something awesome happen, we write it on a card and place it in our blessings box.

This corner still has some storage items. This is where I keep many of my Etsy products as well as just simple storage.

I found this winter painting at an estate sale and absolutely love it! Ya’ll might think I’m crazy for hanging up a winter picture…. but I’m from Michigan and we see snow at least 6 months out of the year.

This cabinet/tv stand I found at a yard sale for $2. I use this to store my books, art supplies, and Etsy inventory.


Thank you all so much for checking out my new home office. I hope you enjoyed it!

Starting Mackenzie’s Project

Uncategorized

Have you ever wanted to do something, but never had the courage or dedication to it? Has there always been that one thing on your bucket list that you want to accomplish, but never seem to have time for? Have you always wanted to use your talents for good? I have. One thing I have always wanted to do is to create and donate baby hats to local hospitals.

I have been knitting since the age of ten. My momma taught me, and my Grandma also assisted me. At the age of seventeen, I learned how to crochet. I learned this skill by watching YouTube videos and help from my grandma. I have made and created many items. I have sold various items in craft shows, garage sales and even on Etsy. I have found many ways to knit and crochet a product to earn a little extra money, but I have never donated my creations.

With all of this being said, I have decided to start a project. I am calling it Mackenzie’s Project… in memory of my daughter Mackenzie. My goal is to knit and crochet 25 baby hats and donate them to a local hospital. My plan is to donate these hats around my what would have been due date which is September 16th, 2019.

I would absolutely love if you could support me in this project by following me on my Pintrest page @ https://www.pinterest.com/MrsRhames/mackenzies-project-my-hobby-of-knitting-and-croche/

Poems

The following is a healing art activity I did in my internship. This exercise was not only therapeutic but also enjoyable. This poem has a more lighter tone to it, and I found it quite whimsical to write. I hope you enjoy! ❤️

I Am

I am KIND and GENTLE

I wonder about my FUTURE

I hear the BIRDS singing

I see a beautiful SUNSET

I want a RAINBOW baby

I AM kind and gentle

I pretend I am a PRINCESS

I feel my GUARDIAN angel’s wings

I touch the TREE of life

I worry about having another MISCARRIAGE

I cry for my BABY

I am kind and GENTLE

I understand the meaning of LOVE

I say CHILDREN are our future

I dream about being a MOMMY

I try to be the BEST I can be

I hope to be a successful WRITER

I am KIND and gentle

Miscarriage

The immediate days following my procedure, I was in a lot of physical and emotional pain. I was heartbroken my baby was gone. I was saddened I was no longer pregnant and I was angry my hormones were all over the place and I still felt pregnant. I was also confused as to why I miscarried my baby. Through my many emotions, I found comfort in art.

I spent many hours coloring in my adult coloring book. I also downloaded many songs that related to grief, death, love and miscarriage. I looked up many quotes online that I found comforting and relatable to what I was feeling, I knitted and crocheted different items that allowed me to be creative as well as keep my hands busy. Lastly, I embroidered Mackenzie’s quilt. I had never done embroidering before, but it honestly turned out better than I thought. I love art and find it very therapeutic.
