Crochet Iconic Women

Shelf 51z tgwyhml

Our #BookOfTheWeek is Crochet Iconic Women. Read our interview with author Carla Mitrani, crochet Amelia Earhart and win the book from David & Charles.

I’m Carla Mitrani, the crochet designer behind Amour Fou dolls and I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I married and I have two redhead boys. However, being a crochet doll designer is in fact my secret identity. I am actually the TV producer of a weekly talk show on national politics, which in my country means a crisis per week! I basically never get bored. On 2020, such a strange year, I had my book published: “Crochet Iconic Women”.

Come on a #CraftRoomTour at Real Girl's Realm and see Mary's craft corner in North Carolina.

My favorite thing about the space is the geometric accent wall and my vintage look mermaid sign!

Our #BookOfTheWeek is Digital Hand Lettering and Modern Calligraphy. Meet author Shelly Kim, make some Colourful Name Tags and #win the book from Quarry Books!

Hey friends! I'm Shelly Kim, the artist behind Letters By Shells! I am a self-taught artist with an emphasis in lettering, digital art, watercolors and fun illustrations, based in Los Angeles, CA. I first discovered the act of creating art as a creative outlet from my desire to release stress from my full-time job back in 2015. After exploring my art hobby for a few years, I eventually turned my art hobby into a full-time career making it a mission for my artwork to express love and positivity. My hope is that my art creations and journey will inspire others to believe that anything in life is totally possible. I have also collaborated with select clients including Michaels, Apple for their Today at Apple event, Adobe Students, Chase Bank, Enso Rings, and Mixbook. I am also the Author of Digital Hand Lettering and Modern Calligraphy, Co-Host of the “Hobby to Business” Podcast, Dog Mom, and I have a huge passion for teaching all things brush lettering, iPad lettering, watercolors and DIY projects!
