New Creative Outlet- Freeform Crochet

I've been creating like a mad woman. Since, having the baby I have been in search for a baby friendly creative activity. I used to love to bead as you can see from our Etsy store but well, now with Baby L, it is a little difficult to get out all those little tiny beads and make jewelry. So what's a girl to do?

This past winter I thought about pulling my crocheting out the closet and make a scarf or something. Well, that never happened because I discovered FreeForm Crochet. It is amazing!!! and I am in Love!!!
 I have a few favorite shops on Etsy that use this form of crochet. And let me tell you they all are super inspiring!!! All of them!!

So, now I would like to unveil my new works of art.

This is the first piece I started working on. So, I see all the flaws. But I love it anyway...

The big question: How would I finish them off? Would I use chain like everyone else or just a ribbon? I decided on crocheting a chain and added different size circles to the ends. The end result is one that I love. It adds a nice decoration to the back of the neck and it makes this still a very kid friendly art project because I don't  have to get out anything except for a few supplies.

This is the last one I made. I love the colors. One of my sister-in-laws picked out the colors. 
She hasn't seen it yet so I hope she doesn't see it here first. LOL

And one last thing I have to say about these fun pieces are this: They are great addition to any wardrobe, They make you feel more put together without having a ton of jewelry on, & They are travel friendly. Imagine this LAX Airport and a cute chunky necklace... Not so cute when you are trying to get through TSA but oh so cute when its made of fabric and you don't have to remove it.

Have a great day creating today!!
We'd love for you to share with us what you use as a creative outlet. 
Do you Blog, Paint, Garden... or Freeform Crochet... We'd love to hear from YOU!!!
