Come on in and grab a cup of coffee! I've got brownies in the oven, so let's get comfy, hang out for a while and I'll tell you a little bit about me! And after that why don't you take a few minutes and browse around. I've got lots of goodies for you to see...and who knows you may even find something just for you!
Ok bare with me... but I gotta give ya'll a little back story on how all this began. It stemmed from an idea I had for a baby shower gift. I LOVE handmade gifts...the plan was to sew together a baby bib but I didn't care for any of the fabric options available to me in the stores. So I thought, why not put my own artwork on it. The question was...how? I toyed with the idea of painting on the fabric...wait, hold up...do ya'll remember puff paint? Is that still a thing...or am I revealing my age?!?! That's what I thought of when I imagined painting on fabric. Are you cringing right now? Yeah me too. So I decided to peruse the tie dye aisle at Hobby Lobby instead. It was there that I stumbled across a permanent, fabric specific, ink pen...YES! Ok, ok, maybe this might be something that is known to the masses and ya'll are questioning what rock I had just crawled out from. But at this time in my life I had been staying at home raising 2 boys; I was so far removed from the world of "all things art"... that this particular find for me was like I had been mining for years and had finally struck gold!
I love the idea of having works of art that double as functional lifestyle pieces. You have to checkout my TEXTILE Gallery to see samples of these awesome and fun pieces! They are all originals hand painted and hand made by me...no two are exactly the same!
But CROE Haven Designs isn't limited to just Textile Art. You can also purchase original paintings, graphite drawings and reproduction prints of previous art works. And I'm always down for a cup of coffee and some computer time. I'm a snob for typography...thats what a whole semester of hand drawing letters will do to a gal. So be sure to hit up the GRAPHIC and FINE ART Galleries too!
I gotta have my coffee in the am, it's my sweet treat that gets me going. My absolute favorite season is fall. I love everything about it, the smell of the crisp air, the leaves changing colors...everything! I'm a sucker for fudge brownies and lazy summer days spent at the pool. I'm insanely obsessed with my dog Sherman, he's my Mr Handsome.
I'll never turn down a sushi date, it is my favorite food to consume...its seriously amazing. If you're holding out because you're scared of raw fish...don't be, get the tempura!
I'll never tire of watching the boys...all three of them. Seeing my husband be a dad is the hottest thing ever...what do they call it...Daddy Porn?!?! LOL, But seriously my boys love their time spent with their daddy and I love watching the bond between them strengthen everyday.
And last is my artwork. It's a passion I truly enjoy. And do you know what's even more awesome?
