Guest Bloggers

This page is to showcase my awesome Guest Bloggers that have participated on Crafting Mommy of Two. They have provided some awesome content for my blog and I wanted to share a little bit about them.

Annie Ciszak Pazar is a metalworker in Anchorage Alaska, specializing in one of a kind handcrafted jewelry, and brings the ‘funk’ to ‘functional.’ With a degree in jewelry design and metalsmithing, Annie is forever experimenting with new techniques and styles, mixing old with new, to bring you one of a kind funktastic style. When not in her private studio doing what she does best, she is manning her brick and mortar shop front boutique in the up-and-coming midtown section of Anchorage. When not wielding a torch, Annie hoards books like a squirrel, knits compulsively, obsesses over Tudor England and is planning the next great international travel adventure. Oh, and she is slowly taking over the world.

Jackie Ramsdell grew up in a Christian home. I love to crochet. My other hobbies are reading, sewing, scrapbooking, singing and cross stitch. My designs are mainly loveys but I am branching out to other things. My family, especially my two rambunctious little girls keep me super busy. Crocheting is my main escape and I love that it can also help out at home.

Christine N. is a busy Mom of 3 active kids and wife to an amazing husband. I love time with my family and the outdoors. We live in Idaho and do our best to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us by skiing in the winter, hiking and white water rafting in summer and running relays through the Sawtooth mountains. I spend most of my days volunteering in classrooms and toting kids to TaeKwonDo classes, soccer practices and tap/ballet classes. But, in those early morning hours I curl up by the fire with my cup of coffee and grab a lovely fiber and hook and see what I feel like creating. Designing new patterns is my passion and I am so fortunate that I have had the chance to use this skill and build it into my own little business. I hope you enjoy my designs and if you are ever in need of a pattern you cannot seem to find, just let me know and we can create something special just for you.

Shannon Mulligan-Mayernik is a Northern New Jersey lifestyle photographer specializing in maternity, newborn, children and family portraits. Her style is photo journalistic, natural, and fun. She loves capturing people doing things they love; playing in the park, smelling fresh roses, or walking through a vineyard. Shannon says, “It never occurred to me that photography could become my career. It was not until I stated taking pictures of couples, children, and families that I fell in love with the idea of portrait photography. I will celebrate Shannon Mulligan Photograph’s SECOND birthday at the end of January 2015!!!!”

April Hudson – Hi! I am April Hudson from Sew Much Love Patterns and Willow Bay Customs. At Sew Much Love Patterns I specialize in creating unique PDF crochet patterns, which include hats, scarves, photography props and more for all ages. For my Willow Bay Customs shop I offer custom boutique style clothing, crochet, knit, and vinyl items.

My love of crochet goes way back to my childhood! My grandfather began teaching me to crochet when I was only 7 years old. He taught me how to do granny squares, but as I got older I got wrapped up in life and pushed crochet to the back burner. In 2008 I started crocheting again during my first pregnancy by making tons of blankets for my soon to be daughter. In the summer of 2010 I opened up my first Facebook page, Made by Muah, for custom hair bows, tutus, and pillowcase dresses. During my second pregnancy I closed up shop due to severe sickness. After the birth of my second child I began to crochet more and started getting requests for patterns for the items I was making.

Sew Much Love Patterns launched in July 2011 with my first patterns: Skull Hat, Zombie Hat, and Mohawk Hat . Since that time I have created well over 150 crochet patterns and have one beginner sewing pattern. Crochet patterns tend to sell better during fall and winter so I opened Willow Bay Customs to keep my busy during spring and summer. At Willow Bay Customs I sew beautiful dresses, skirts, pants, and much more. I also take custom crochet, knit, and vinyl decal orders.

One of my favorite things about Sew Much Love Patterns is meeting so many wonderful crafters! I am lucky to have such creative photographers, testers, graphic artists and fans! I love seeing photos of their work and I truly appreciate them and YOU so much! Thank you all for coming along on this journey with me, I hope to keep designing for many years to come.
