Jacki joined our team of designers about two months ago. We went crazy over her adorable teddy bears- and we knew she would be the perfect compliment to our business.
I’ve put it down and picked it back up several times over the years depending on how busy I was with kids and ministry and work. Now that I am home helping to care for my grandson, I have lots of time for it and I’m loving it.
What is your favorite thing to crochet?
I tend to like to get into the more complicated things….sweaters and such….but I just love to see something come out of nothing so knitting or crocheting anything is very satisfying to me.
When did you start making your own patterns?
When is your favorite time to crochet?
Where do you get your inspiration from?
Most of my inspiration comes from looking around online to see what’s out there and figuring out how to make it my own….from customer requests…and from brainstorming with my fellow Baby Buttons designers.
Over the years I have had my hand in many things….being a stay-at-home Mom…catering…real estate and a lot of church related leadership and ministry. I came to Texas (via Toronto Canada and Jackson Tennessee) about 7 months ago…with my husband and pregnant daughter. Now I am a very happy and blessed grandmother to Kai Trevor and get to help care for him so my daughter Val can get on her feet and make a home for her and Kai. I am so blessed and grateful to have been invited to join the Baby Buttons team. It has given me an outlet for doing what I love and the opportunity to grow in relationship with some amazing women.

And just for fun: If you were stuck with one food for a whole week, what would you eat and why?

Today was our very first Photo shoot with the incredibly talented Valerie Cannon. All along we have been wanting to get some professional shots of our items on babies because let's face it, my poor attempt at photography is just not working out. When the majority of your customers tell you that your items look "much better in person" and that "pictures don't don't do them justice", it was a good hint that maybe we should hire someone who actually knows how to take photos.
Hope you can join us for our Christmas in July event! Merry Christmas and Happy Summer?? -Kathryn
