New Home

Most of you know, I changed my blog name to Dream, Imagine, Wish, Create, Live because this defines my business, what I do, and showing you what I love to do. I thought about creating a new fan page that shows you the tile of my name, my shop, and my blog. Well, I deleted my old fan page, Lauren Prock yesterday and created a new fan page name Dream, Imagine, Wish: Lauren Prock. Now, I'm focusing on showing you my handcrafted items, posts from my blog, and new items that have been listed to my etsy shop. Check out my new fan page and be amazed. Dream, Imagine, Wish: Lauren Prock Promote Your Page Too

Getting My Groove Back, My Knitting Groove That Is

I started being an artist an the tender age of twelve.  It all started off with my nanna knitting a sweater. I loved the way the sweater looked and asked my nanna, can you teach me how to knit.  My nanna said, yes.  So she had an extra pair of knitting needles and showed me the basic knitting stitch.  She showed me how to knit & I knew this is what I wanted to do.  I started with the occasional scarf, scrap pieces, and so on.  I dropped the knitting with I started to work with polymer clay & just put the knitting on the back burner.  After I started working with polymer clay, I learned how to crochet.  Well, I love working with yarn and polymer clay.  Just this past week, I've been doing research on pinterest and looked up knitting again.  I love the endless possibilities, what you can do, and the winning results with what you can do.  I'm happy to announce that I'll be not only working with polymer clay, crocheting, but I'm bringing knitting back in my collection.  I found a pair of knitting needles that I bought a few years ago and tried it out.  Here's what I've been working on so far.  My plan is to create scarves, rugs, blankets, and many other things that I want to try.  I'm also looking into taking some classes on knit and crochet.  Stay tuned this spring and summer for my new knit, crochet, and polymer clay creations.

Susan Bates: Golden Spring Crochet Hook

I don't know about you, but this has been a rough winter.  I don't remember the last time we had as much snow as we had.  I've decided to focus on new spring things.  This includes crochet hooks, crochet items, knitted items, & much more.  

I just uploaded this 6.50mm Susan Bates crochet hook to my etsy shop.  It's made up of spring colors, which includes magenta, green, & a scrap clay.  The crochet hook is completed with tempera paint & liquid polymer clay.

I've also been inspired with knitting.  When I first started working with yarn, basic knitting is the first thing that I learned how to do.  I found a pair of knitting needles last night and decided to try to knit again.  Now you'll see both knit and crochet on my artfire and etsy shop.  Stay tuned.

Singing Snowmen Gift Tags

I know it's sounds crazy, because Christmas is over, but I'm coming with many gift tags to sell & that are useful.  I just created these lovely snowmen gift tags, which are made with polymer clay, a music stamp, black ink, and liquid polymer clay.  There are 16 gift tags total & they were just added to my etsy shop today.
My inspiration for these snowmen is the amount of snow that the state of New York has had this winter.  Coming home every night, I would see a few kids making snowmen on the front lawn of their home.  It reminds me of the holiday season with the snowmen from the snow this winter & singing Christmas carols.  I wanted to start to create a variety of things for all of the seasons.  Right now I have snowmen tags & espresso tags.  Many more beautiful polymer clay tags will come. Stay tuned.

Book Inspiration Of The Week

Out of all of the favorite places to shop besides Michael's Arts & Crafts is Barnes And Noble Books.  I went to Barnes & Noble's after I got out of the doctor's & discovered this book while I was walking in the store.  I'm thinking of packaging concepts to create not only for my shops, but to sell as well.  I haven't read it yet, but I'm looking forward to reading it when I get home.  Grab a copy of this book & see what it can do for you when making gifts & shipping gifts.  

Give The Gift Of Handmade

As an artist, I love coming up with new ideas, creating items with my hands, creating titles on my online stores, & buying local.  I'm a big supporter handmade.  Support local artists in your community, online, & more.
I'm also inspired by handmade gift tags, wrapping paper, crocheted bags, and more.  I'm in the process of making packaging goods that will be for sale on my etsy shop.  Wrap up your gifts in handmade items and more.  Stay tuned.

Just when I think we're getting a break from the snow, here's another fourteen inches on it's way.  On the positive side, I get to spend time at home with mom, crochet, & have a warm & toasty day.  Ginger wanted to go outside, so I took her outside.

Quick And Easy Rugs For The Home

With a pound of yarn from Sugar And Cream yarn, it's fun making quick & easy things for the home.  I started this rug last weekend & just finished it this morning.  All washed & placed in front of the sink at home, this rug is beautiful with different shades of green, tan, & a boarder on the outside.  This is an example of rugs that you'll find on my artfire studio & etsy shop.  Don't forget that you can get custom rugs made on my shop.

New Rectangular Throw

Crocheting different things as a crochet artist is fun and exciting.  Picking out the colors of yarn, deciding how much will I need, what I'm gonna crochet, & how long will it take.  This rectangular throw is not only full of color, but it will keep you warm through the cold winter months.  This blanket will be added to my etsy shop, along with a few other crocheted items.  Prices of all of my blankets have been changed from $60 to $40.  Cost of shipping remains the same.  Bed blankets are also in the works.

Experimenting With Sun Tiles

Lately, I've been fascinated with sunny art.  Our sun is one of the most beautiful things that god created & mother nature brings out when necessary.  It's warm, it makes things grow, & it makes beautiful art like these small tiles I'm working on here.  I'm thinking about new ideas to bring to the home that are colorful as well as functional.  The sun below my polymer clay art is an i-phone wall paper that I fell in love with & wanted to share. Stay tuned to see what happens with these sun tiles I'm experimenting on.
Sun being cut into small squares.  It's like a puzzle you have to put together when it's cut.
