Hi, I’m Kelsie Weeks! Welcome to Crafting for Weeks!
Nice to Meet ya!
I’m the Maker and Designer behind Crafting for Weeks! You might call me a Crochet-at-Home mom with three adorable boys and one little girl. I’ve been married to my handsome husband for nearly nine years. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Vanguard University of Southern California, and am currently enjoying life in the Pacific Northwest.
The Origin Story
I started this site to showcase some of my nap-time handiwork. When I started out, one might have called me a “jack-of-all-trades, and a master of none”. If you can find it on Pinterest, I’ve probably pinned it, bought the supplies, maybe started it, and, quite likely, left if half finished somewhere in my house. However a few years ago, I found my niche with crochet and crochet design. I was inspired by my blogger role models to keep a majority of my content free to share with you all.
My blog name of Crafting for Weeks was two-fold. First, that’s my last name! And second, it literally takes me weeks to finish things. #Momlife, am I right?! I hope to showcase a wide variety of tips, tricks, and resources for different craft ideas, and hopefully inspire others to do something creative as well. Enjoy!
About my Crafts
I’ve always been very interested in creative endeavors. But, as much as I enjoy some of my other crafts, crochet is definitely one of my favorite activities. I originally learned to crochet and knit from my grandma when I was probably 6 or 7 years old. During a trip to Africa, one of my classmates taught a few of us how to crochet hats and reignited my interest in crochet. Once I got married, I found myself living the military lifestyle of constantly moving from place to place. It was difficult to find a job, so I started crocheting again in my free time. I learned a majority of what I know now from craft sites and Youtube videos, but I still credit my grandma with teaching me how to hold a hook, because lets be honest, that’s the hardest part.
While I started making hats a scarves for friends, I now primarily design patterns. You can find my free patterns by clicking the button below!
