About

Why mama tats

With four young boys in the house, it can get overwhelming at times. There are days where I desperately want to do something adult, something feminine. I crocheted for a long time, and still do occasionally. After the birth of my second child, my mother started me tatting. It was only fitting that she introduced me to this art, as she was also the one who taught me to crochet. I remembered seeing her tat occasionally when I was growing up.

Tatting opened a whole new world for me. At first it was frustrating because I felt like I worked a long time, for a very tiny piece of something. I slowly improved both in technique, and in time.

I had a desire to make tatting that served a purpose, and did not just lay around. Soon, I was looking for patterns, and participating in craft shows. At one such craft show, the nice lady in the booth next to mine informed me of etsy. After over a year of thinking about it, and another baby, I took the leap.

As I list more items and come into contact with more people on etsy, I look forward to growing, both as a person, and as a tatter. I have been inspired to begin to try and design my own pieces. I pray that as things begin to sell and find new homes, that these new tatted piece owners will find some of the joy that I put into making them.

I start every day with prayer and Bible study. God is behind everything I do. He leads me in the steps I should take, and guides me down the paths I should go. Every item is prayed over while it is being made. May every piece bless you in some way.
