Repeat Crafter Me
For as long as Sarah can remember she has always been crafty and had a love of art, crafts, and creating. In 2011 she taught herself how to crochet and seemed to have unleashed a hidden talent she never knew she had. She quickly began designing her own pieces and writing her own patterns. She currently posts all her crochet patterns and tutorials for free! She learned by following free patterns so she is happy to pay it forward and hopes her patterns help and inspire you.
The word “moogly” was coined by Tamara's daughter when she was a toddler. She used it to describe anything wobbly, off kilter, silly, or teeter-tottery. When Tamara decided to start a mommy blog a few years later, the name Moogly was a natural fit! After a while she decided mommy blogging wasn’t right for her, but she kept the blog around because she had a crochet pattern she’d written on there. Fast forward to 2011, when she decided to open a crochet and knit business, and Moogly got stripped down and relaunched to support her commission work! Eventually she realized design was where her heart was, and she stopped taking commissions. And here we are!

Having sold her company in 2014, she's now busy completing all those personal projects placed on the “back burner.” Hence, her year of making beautiful things.
Mary Martha Mama
This blog is something that was on Cat's heart for a few years before she started it in 2014. She wanted a place to let out a little creativity and encourage others to try new things, to pick up that glue gun or sit down at a sewing machine. Nothing makes her happier than to hear from readers that a tutorial has helped them figure it out and try something new.
Tikkido is a simplified spelling of Tykki-dyw, the Cornish word for butterfly, and Nikki's youngest daughter’s nickname. Nikki has been busy creating inspiring parties for Tikkido.com, and giving her readers the tutorials and recipes they need to do it for themselves since 2010.

Oombawka Design Crochet
Oombawka Design was created as a way for Rhondda to share her crochet projects with friends and family. Initially, she was crocheting and selling little stuffed toys. The name “Oombawka”, came from a word her daughter used for a little toy Rhonda was crocheting at the time – the Mini Meows (or Little Oombawkas).
Nourish and Nestle
If you like to bake it, make it, garden it and diy it, then you are in the right place! Lynn loves to create, whether it’s a great meal, a knitted project, a painting or another pretty thing for her home. She's a bit at a loss without a current project of some sort. She wants a home that friends and family feel comfortable and ‘nestled’ in. Her decorating style is ‘eclectic’ and that a decorating ‘challenge’ is that she doesn’t have a favorite color!

Crochet 365 Knit Too
Cheryl is a crochet blogger, designer and occasional knitter. If it’s creative, she's probably tried it. But her most favorite thing to do is to crochet. Her guilty pleasure on days off from her 8-5 job is to start the day relaxing in her favorite chair, in PJs with a cup of coffee and look at crochet and knit lovelies on Pinterest.In the evenings, you’ll find her back in her favorite chair surrounded by yarn and crochet hooks. Cheryl finds crocheting relaxing. It soothes her soul and feeds her creative spirit. She loves to crochet and visit with family. The rhythmic movement of the hook and the feel of the yarn running through her fingers blends together with the sounds of love and laughter and somehow they become intertwined. That feeling of contentment is the best feeling of all.
