A quick look back at a year of growth for Hands Occupied, and creative dreams for the year (and decade) to come!
Occasional blog posts about my life. Everything from work life balance to how yarn crafts help combat anxiety is fair game here.
Learn about the new Very Serious Crafts podcast, a collaboration among Mollie Johanson of Wild Olive, Haley Pierson-Cox of Red Handled Scissors, and Heidi Gustad of Hands Occupied.
In honor of my wedding anniversary today, I’d planned to share with you some pictures of my husband modeling my gift for him, a lovingly knitted Icelandic sweater, but, uh, about that…
A pretty thorough reflection on how the heck Hands Occupied came about and why. Suffice it to say, none of this was planned.
One of my goals for Hands Occupied this year is being less buttoned up. Today I want to share more about what my first year as a full time knit & crochet designer looked like. Brace yourselves – it was a doozie!
After much deliberation, I recently decided that I’m ready to move on from Librarianship. It’s officially official – Friday was my last day of working as a Librarian. Learn about what that means for Hands Occupied in today’s post!
Last month, my husband and I visited Iceland for ten days to celebrate our anniversary. Since it turns out that there’s yarn just about everywhere you look in Iceland, I thought I’d share a roundup of all the wooly highlights (and a bit of scenery) from our trip.
