During the first pocket of “mommy time” she carved out after her son was born, Krista Barmer (@pendrops) started stitching. “It was something I put my hands to,” says Krista, who had previously played guitar and pursued music in Nashville, Tennessee. “After I had my son, I felt drawn to fabric, textiles, fibers and paper, and wanted to express my journey in that way.” Seven years later, Krista has established herself as a textile artist, selling her works from her online shop. “There’s something about the slowness of it, and that it’s my hands creating every stitch,” she says of the process. “Even the stitches that snag or get tangled, I leave them as they are because it means something. It makes it interesting, gives dimension and tells a story, too.” #MadeToCreate Photo by @pendrops

I took up my brush again and began to paint.

When someone asks you "what makes you come alive" what they're really asking is: how many birds fly out of your chest when you are deep in love? Do the raindrops taste salty or sweet when you experience sadness? How are your hands? Do they make? Do they dance? Do they create? Do they give? How many smiles are born when you're driving head first into the sunshine receiving reminders from the wind that you are exactly where you need to be? What makes you live? (& how many more breaths will it take before you realize you are tiny bits of god?)

Umm yah... So come and get it 😜 . Less than 10 people are currently wearing these around Winnipeg right now because I've been too busy to list anything ☺️ But I've set my date and I'm almost ready to launch! . There is limited stock with a variety of tassel options including some new more elegant leather tassle options. Lovingly hand made by yours truly 😙 . Spoiler: More androgynous version is in the works meant to replace a tie for a more formal look!
This is it, my friends! The last day to get in on The Council! Who's in!? 👯👯👯👯 So far we have an amazing group and we can't wait for you to become a part of it! All the details are linked in my profile and I am available to answer any questions!
I'm so excited to be part of the @homeandvintage summer fair this year! It's my first fair so I'm busy making wreaths to sell and preparing my marketing materials. It's so much fun! To any of my seasoned crafters out there, do you have any advice you can give me about fairs in general? I've managed to rope my mum in to help at the stand, she's a true extrovert whilst I'm a shy extrovert. Quiet til I warm up and then unstoppable 🙊 Do come along and say 👋 if you're in the area: Guildford 24th June 10-4 💕🌿💕 For you @ceramicmagpie and @folksyhq for this months #wipsandblooms

Back in the shop after a few days of laziness. Working on a altar cross for a local church. 🕆 It's fun doing something different for a change 👍😄
One of my fav things in the world is when students come to the church in their free time to invest in building @impactstudentministry and the local church --- #LightsCameraAction #MadeToCreate 🎬🎤🎥
