Nakoma Handmade - turning our obsession into a business?

Nakoma Handmade

Camille and I have launched our very own handmade craft business. After selling a few of my Scandinavian Santas last year (I will be making more of these very soon), I started getting requests to buy other crocheted goods, so I figured - why not?! 

Camille had also had a lot of requests for her woven scarves, so together we decided to create Nakoma Handmade. We have a logo and everything! Even got a custom stamp made up, thanks to Wellington Rubber Stamp Co. Totally recommend them by the way, ya just have to support local. Their instagram page is worth checking out too, so many beautiful stamps!

I Taught Myself How To Crochet

Hi guys. Does anyone even read this blog anymore? I don't know. It's been that long, I can barely remember how to do this. Excuse my awkwardness, I reckon it'll take awhile for this to feel "normal" again.

Where have we been? To be honest, stuck behind a thick wall of grief. After the death of our Grandparents, we lost all desire to do anything - let alone blog. But now that we're feeling a bit better, I figured it was time to get back to doing the things I used to enjoy. And here we are!

To try and cope, I taught myself how to crochet. A tonne of mistakes and Youtube tutorials later, and I am quite literally hooked (haha). This is basically just going to be a bunch of photos and "look what I did!" moments - so please, if you will, just humour me.
