Fact: Over the weekend, I did two things that I never thought I would ever do – Launch a crochet business and sponsor an event.
Milestone! @crochetbymrsc makes it official debut at the @motherswhobrunch event today with my first collection of Christmas coasters. #achievementunlocked! #turnyourpassionintoprofit #domoreofwhatmakesyouhappy #makersgonnamake #crochet #crochetph #gantsilyo #gantsilyoph #handmade #crochetbymrsc #motherswhobrunch #threadcraftthursday #crochetastherapy
Anyone who has asked me over the last few years if I would ever consider selling the stuff I crochet would tell you that my default answer is “No, because this is my stress-reliever, and I don’t want it to turn into something stressful.”
Well, somewhere between moving houses, my brain being fried from writing, and the search for something more meaningful and enjoyable to do, I decided to just go ahead and give this whole Crochet by MrsC thing a try. The happiest business people are those who are able to turn their passions into profit after all, right? Plus, it gives me an excuse to buy more yarn! Hahaha!
Truth be told, I have been enjoying this business so far, ever since I launched it three days (LOL) ago. Of course it helps that in those three days, I have already received a couple of orders. Woohoo! Granted, my first customers are friends, but that’s the way it goes anyway.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! Now that we're done with Halloween, it's time to officially activate holiday mode! I can't wait to start decorating. It's gonna be our first Christmas in our own house. Time to make memories! ?? PS Aren't these snowflake coasters the cutest? ?❄⛄ #crochet #crochetph #gantsilyo #gantsilyoph #handmade #crochetbymrsc #crochetmotif #crochetsnowflake #crochetcoaster #makersgonnamake #craftastherapy #threadcraftthursday
My first “official” event sponsorship was for friends, too, when I made a few pairs of snowflake coasters to give to the lovely moms who attended the Holiday Potluck edition of Mothers Who Brunch.
This was by far the biggest project I have made for anyone, and it makes me happy that it was for an event I’ve attended and enjoyed, and for friends whom I love. Plus, it was a great way to get samples of my work out to the right people. Win-win!
How many days til Christmas? I'm not counting na, but the yuletide spirit is in the air with these holiday finds from our recent #motherswhobrunchxmas!

I’m not sure how far I will end up going with this new venture. All I know is that I will keep doing it for as long as it make me, and other people, happy. And, of course, for as long as there are people out there who want me to make crocheted stuff for them.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. What I love about what we do in #MothersWhoBrunch is that we Gather, we hope to Inspire and then we feast. Well, I for one am inspired by these amazing moms/women who have turned their passions into businesses. Bravo, ladies!!!?????? Tap the photo to know more about them.?
