Meet Natalie, our new friend from Marigold's Loft! Mom, Crafter, entrepreneur, all around lovely lady. 

What she says about herself: 

"I used to be a yoga teacher, and also used to run meditation groups. I am a vibrational therapist and work with alternative healing methods.

I am a South African mom of two teens, living with my girls and hubby in Switzerland.

I used to homeschool our children, but since moving back to Switzerland have enrolled them in a local Steiner School. Not schooling the girls has given me a lot of extra time and so I have slowly become more and more involved in crafts of all kinds.

I adore knitting and crochet, and have spent many a blog hour posting about my WIPs and FOs :)

I am an avid reader and love curling up under the duvet with a nice cup of tea and a good book (which is very possible to do most days in Europe)."

I found a whole page of free patterns! There are felted bags, hats, socks and ear warmers. I am teaching myself how to knit, so this will be a great resource for me and you!  

My favorite part though is the youtube videos! I love to watch videos to learn as I get the audio and visual and I get to participate along with the videos or I can crochet while I watch. As a bonus, I can watch on my schedule, which is convenient. I really like the tea light holder and the recycled door sign. 

I admire people who do the videos because I haven't quite figured out how to do that yet. Stay tuned though - we have plans to expand into this area soon!

Plenty of time to plan and create!

There is a printables tab too! Mom was pretty excited to see the printable for square foot gardening. She started square foot gardening a few years ago and is always drawing out pictures of what she planted where...and then losing it.....these printable will be handy.

I found a tracker for yarn.....something we really need to do. After a bit, the yarn stash grows to a size where you never know what is where!

There are so many great blog posts, videos, tutorials, patterns, printables, parties and more on Natalie's site, you need to go check it out to see the depth of available information. Let Natalie know we sent you! :) 
Thanks for reading, Kristina
