Day 23 | Top Tip or Advice I think that one of the best way to develop your own style is to always try new things. Browse for new materials, read some new books on techniques, and give it a go! It doesn’t have to be perfect the first time (or second), but you will learn from it and improve, and you’ll apply what you learned whether you know it or not on the next thing that you try. Let the things that you learn inspire you . . #marchmeetthemaker #handembroidery #embroidery #embroideryart #handmade #handsewn #embroidered #3dembroidery #modernembroidery #koi #ocean #love #waterlily #stitch

carriegoffdesigns: Happy Spring everybody! I have a few days of #marchmeetthemaker to play catch up on, it’s been busy

Happy Spring everybody! I have a few days of #marchmeetthemaker to play catch up on, it’s been busy around here lately with all of the amazing shares and attention my last piece received (thank you!!!). I really feel honored to have new followers, too. Which brings me to Day 22 | Proud Of What I am proud of actually is this fantastic community of embroidery and fiber artists on Instagram. It is truly supportive, and encouraging, and literally proof that supporting someone else’s successes does not detract from your own. Look at how many of you are doing workshops, gallery shows, getting published in articles and publishing your own books and doing shows like the Silos! #communityovercompetition❤️ Day 21 | Throwback This watermelon piece makes me smile every time, I just wanted it to be bright, colorful, “summery,” and whimsical. I love the pun of the little marching ants spelling out melon 😄 still gets me haha Day 20 | Design Process Sometimes I like to work out my ideas on a sketchbook #oldschoolor I work on my iPad. Procreate is a fav, also Adobe Capture for letting me photograph a sketch and save it as a vector, saving me SO much clean up time if I want to turn it into a pattern later 🌟

Heyyyyo Instalovies! Newly Listed in the shop. Finally finished up one of my WIPs today, and I am SO excited to share it! Lots of “new” for me in this piece, the koi is embroidered with a stitch I just learned (and now love), the linen is a new shade to me, and the fish itself was stitched using satin floss, which I’d never used before. It is sooooo soft and shiny! AND it’s the first time I’ve used tulle, the ruffley mesh that makes the fins. Love it all, and I really think it all came together nicely!

Day 19 | Dream Collaboration I really think that Instagram is a great community for artists and artisans, and for people to find those artists, search them out or come across them somehow from a hashtag. And I’ve been SO inspired by people in my own feed, and people that have contacted me. So my dream collaborator is actually YOU. I love hearing your suggestions, getting your feedback, and even better coming up with a piece of jewelry or embroidery that is specifically what you imagined it to be. I love hearing your thoughts and ideas! More than imagining my own because a lot of times it ends up becoming something that I wouldn’t have thought up on my own. It’s great when the people that think you’re inspiring, end up inspiring you. #marchmeetthemaker

Day 19 | Mistake or Lesson What this prompt actually made me think about is bravery, instead. I think we have to be willing to TRY new things. You have to say to yourself I may not really know what I’m doing, but I’m gonna give it a whirl. Sometimes you get it right away, and sometimes you have to give it a few whirls. I have cut fabric wrong, I have messed up stitches, I have drawn patterns the wrong size. I am not formally trained, I’ve taught myself from books, mostly. I am still learning as I go along. So if you don’t even try, how will you ever learn? #marchmeetthemaker #makerspace #makersmovement #modernembroidery #hoopembroidery #embroidery #embroideryart #dmcthreads #dmcembroidery #love #craft #sewing #stitch #bicycle #enjoythejourney

Day 17 | What I’m working on I don’t feel like I’m at a place to share my current WIP here, but if you follow my stories you may have seen a glimpse or two of it lately. However, I will be making more of these succulent/cacti pieces as dimensional embroidery. I want to play with adding more pops of color to them, and maybe a few more felt “pots.” I really enjoy taking traditional stitches, and seeing what you can do with them in a more modern way. It’s also really fun to play with the tension, and see what affect that has as well. UPDATE: These 2 pieces have sold and are on their way to their forever home in Utah with a really lovely new owner ❤️ more coming soon! . . . #makersmovement #marchmeetthemaker #hoopembroidery #modernembroidery #makestuff #succulents #dmcembroidery #dmcperle #cactus #garden #embroidery #3dembroidery #cacti #succulentsofinstagram #succulove #succulent #love #flowers #bordado #broderie #cactuslover

Day 16 | Workspace For my Valentine’s Day gift, my husband gave me one of the best gifts I’ve ever gotten. A new workspace! And STORAGE!!! It’s not 100% organized and finished yet, but it’s getting there. It’s pretty amazing and my husband is even more amazing!!! #marchmeetthemaker #workspace #craft #craftroom #studio #design #love #artist #designer #art #artroom #storageideas #storage #storagesolutions #embroidery #embroideryart #embroiderydesign #embroideredart #embroider #sewing #stitch #modernembroidery #hoopembroidery #embroideryhoop #makestuff #makersgonnamake #makersmovement #makerspace #dmcembroidery #dmcperle

Day 15 | Motivation I have something on my desk that says “Do something creative every day.” Your true purpose is when your talent fulfills someone elses need. Don’t let people tell you you’re not talented. Show them that you are. My motivation is a love of creating, and learning, and expanding what I think that I can actually do. I feel really lucky that I get to hold something tangible in my hands that stemmed from a thought in my imagination, I get to hold actual results from the workings of my mind and my hands, which I think is truly amazing. I do have some specific goals, hopes, and dreams but for right now I just want to create in that frame of mind and see where that leads us. #marchmeetthemaker

Day 14 | How I Learnt This is the very first dimensional stitch piece that I ever made, it still hangs at my desk. I learned one new stitch at a time, out of an ancient embroidery book. The real credit, I think, goes to my Ma who taught me when I was very little. She had a craft box she’d let us play with on rainy days. Did anyone else do those cross stitch kits back in the 80s?! #marchmeetthemaker

Day 13 | Photography Nothing fancy at the mo, Swipe to see my whole set-up. I use 12x12 cardstock as backgrounds. I lay it all on a piece of foam board near a window for natural light. I use my iphone or ipad whichever is nearby. The cardstock is also what I make my packaging with. And I edit photos with the Color Story app the filters are easy and very Instagram-y. What’s your fav photography trick? #marchmeetthemaker

Day 11 | Reduce Waste I think that it’s everyones responsibility to try to reduce our impact on our environment when you can, and with packaging there are a lot of opportunities for me to do just that. All of my kits, embroideries, necklaces, and home goods are packaged in cardstock boxes and envelopes that I make with no plastic. I’ve been toying with the idea of just tying on my branding and leaving them completely blank and reusable, what do you guys think of that? Also, I keep a small ort jar with all of my used threads, and this year I’ve been taking those threads each week and practicing my stitching on one large hoop. One new succulent added to it each week. I love re-using!!! #marchmeetthemaker

Day 10 | Me Heyyyo! So this is me, and over my shoulder is the tiny fella that We made last year. He was just crying because I wouldn’t let him climb the laundry hamper. Toddlers, amirite 🤷‍♀️ I like wine and fried chicken (not necessarily together, but there are worse combos...). I hate cinnamon, so store shopping at Christmas time really sucks for me. I like traveling, I’ve been to Scotland and Italy. I love holiday get togethers and big messy piles of family eating and talking. I love movies and Netflix and if you don’t watch GoT...why?! I don’t really have this super curated Instalife, and I am totally 💯 ok with that, because this is MUCH better. So, let me get to know you and YOU tell me if you could go anywhere, where would you go? . . . #marchmeetthemaker #embroidery #handmade #fashion #embroideryart #art #handembroidery #embroiderydesign #design #love #style #cotton #sewing #broderie #bordado #embroidered #needlework #diy #designer #craft #embroideryhoop #etsy #bhfyp

Story Behind The Name | Day 9 Obviously, it’s me 😄 I’ve tossed around a few other ideas in my head before, but nothing seemed to fit so for now I’m actually pretty happy with this. I’m very proud of what I’ve made and all that I’ve taught myself. Although, maybe now that I look at it I should change the arrows to snips in my logo, yeah? . . . #marchmeetthemaker #embroidery #handmade #fashion #embroideryart #art #handembroidery #embroiderydesign #design #love #style #cotton #sewing #broderie #bordado #embroidered #needlework #diy #craft #embroideryhoop #etsy #bhfyp

Day 8 | Product Range Little of this, little of that...I like to challenge myself to learn new things, and I think what my shop offers really reflects that. I really enjoy sharing that with people. So my shop has everything from already finished embroidery art, to kits, to PDF patterns, to jewelry and some wooden home decor sprinkled in. Also, it’s snowing here today 😐 . . . #marchmeetthemaker #embroidery #handmade #fashion #embroideryart #art #handembroidery #embroiderydesign #design #love #style #cotton #sewing #broderie #bordado #embroidered #needlework #diy #designer #craft #embroideryhoop #etsy #bhfyp

Less Glam Side | Day 7 I think that most people running a small business would say that the less glam side would be all of the different “hats” that you have to wear. You have to learn marketing, social media, e-commerce, photography, how to write good content, finances and accounting etc. All of that time invested BEYOND what you already spend making whatever it is you are selling. Once you’ve done it, however, it’s not so bad. I KNOW that this will sound cheesy (🤷‍♀️), but I actually really enjoy making the actual packaging for all of my sales. I cut and assemble each box and envelope by hand. I really do care about each and every piece that I make so much that, I don’t know, it feels wrong to me to shove it in some generic box and slap postage on it before it goes on its way. It’s ALL personal to me, from beginning to end. I hope that comes across to each of my customers, and I hope they feel happy seeing each little pretty box, too. . . #marchmeetthemaker #succulents #cactus #plants #succulent #garden #flowers #damngoodstitch #succulentsofinstagram #cacti #plantsofinstagram #plantlady #dmc #gardening #3dembroidery #succulove #succulentaddict #succulentlove #embroidery #embroideryart #handembroidery #dmcthreads #dmcembroidery #dmcperle #bordado #broderie #craft

Full or Part Time | Day 6 The majority of my day, every day, is taking care of my 1yr old son. I have a husband that travels every week for work, too, so there are lots of days when I don’t get to “tag” daddy into the ring, I am boxing solo over here y’all. No family that lives close, either. There are LOTS of days when I don’t even get a break to myself, literally, if I’m alone and baby refuses naps. So when the good long naps happen, this is what I do. I don’t worry about the cleaning or the cooking that all can wait for later. I use my time to do what makes me the most happy, and this business is what it is. It’s hard. To have so very little autonomy and time to yourself, some days it brings me to tears. Thankfully, those days are pretty rare. And I’ve gotten to spend every moment of my babies life watching him grow and become this amazing, adorable little fellah that I just love with every shred of my entire being (no one warns you about that big love beforehand, but wow, is it huge). So thank you to all of YOU. For following me on this journey, for the comments and likes, for the purchases and shares of my posts. This is what makes me feel most like me, so thank you for supporting me in as many incredible ways that you do. You all are totally awesome ❤️ . . . #marchmeetthemaker #embroidery #handmade #fashion #embroideryart #youreoneinamelon #art #handembroidery #embroiderydesign #design #love #style #cotton #sewing #broderie #bordado #damngoodstitch #dmcthreads #dmcembroidery #embroidered #diy #craft #embroideryhoop
