Good morning my loves! How was your week? Well, let’s try to make it even better for one lucky reader! It’s Friday so that means we have our second ever Simply Lovely Lumber weekly giveaway! This week we have Lindsay from Forage and Lee. She makes the most beautiful macramés! Here is Lindsay with a little bit about herself and her business…
My name is Lindsay Lee of Forage & Lace and I am a fiber artist specializing in macramé! I am 32 years old living in Vancouver, BC Canada and a first time mom to my daughter Avery Dawn born July 2015!
I first tampered with macramé about 2 years ago, made a couple things and forgot about it. I distanced myself from social media for a bit and so I lost touch with what was current or not trending. I found macramé again this year in February 2016 and decided that I would no longer sit back and be stagnant with my art. Having my daughter has really inspired me to find what I love and to be better at it. Also being on maternity leave and being away from a job that was unfulfilling has given my brain the space it needs to be inventive and creative. Since February I have been on the look out for and in contact with smaller boutiques that I hoped would house my work. I’ve been successful so far and my pieces will be in their 6th store by next week! Along with that I have been doing a few local markets and macramé workshops. Meeting other local artists and artisans has been so rewarding! Seeing other moms kick butt and getting things done has been extra motivating as well! However, teaching my craft has by far been the most fulfilling for me! I have only done a couple so far but the reward is far greater than I ever expected! I have always loved to teach and although I’m still finding ways to be better, it’s been so amazing and the response from these women (so far just the ladies have joined) has been immensely satisfying!
I hope that I can continue to grow both as a person and an artist while I do this! I’m having a blast doing it!
Ahhhh-Ma-Zing, right?! I’m honestly so blown away with how beautiful they are! Would you guys like to see what piece Lindsay is giving to one of my lovely readers?
