Featured Instagrammer 1

This week’s featured crochet instagrammer is Railyn Beauchamp of @raimarie16. She’s a mother of four, (retired) army wife, and interior design enthusiast. In 2008 she opened the Frou Frou Factory, making crochet wearables for all ages and crochet home decor as well. She has a terrific eye for color, design and layout so I always love her photographs. Occasionally you’ll spot her kiddos and her home in her images but mostly it’s just rich, wonderful pictures of terrific crochet. Here’s what she shared this week:

Featured Instagrammer 2

I’ve got a second featured Instagrammer this week because there are just so many great folks out there to choose from! This one is Sandra @mobiusgirl, a psychologist, maker and mama who has granny square goodness for sale at MobiusGirlDesign on Zazzle. I love the detail in her crochet stitches, the way she balances intricate designs with simpler styles and her eye for a good crafty photo. This is another crochet-rich feed with occasional home and kiddo photos, always fun! Here’s what she’s shared with us recently:

_marihohana crafty way to fight depresion

_marihohana who wrote with this image: Crafty way to fight depression. My way of fighting the mood is with arts and crafts; of course, with a cup of coffee. It helps to release bottled up feelings and emotions while creating, and it is believed that creativity and healing come from the same inner place.”
