Michelle at Wrens Nest Creations puts out a fantastic product! The dishcloths are of high quality and expertly crafted. My order arrived promptly and the best thing is they are packaged so attractively. I bought a set for a gift and a set for myself. I wouldn't hesitate to order again! Thank you!
My husband’s grandmother used to knit piles of dishcloths and hand them out at Christmas to all the grandkids and cousins every year.
After she passed away, there was no one else in the family who made them. I had no real luck learning to knit, but I can crochet some. So I started making them for my own home, and then for family, and then just kept on going from there, until it became this!
I love making the bright, modern, fun color combinations. Just because an item is functional, doesn't mean it can't also be fun and attractive. I mean, it's something that you'll be using everyday, it should bring some joy when you do, right?
And it has to be well made, because if it can't stand up to being used every day, what's the point? Any product I offer in my shop has been time tested in my own home before I even feel comfortable offering it to others.
My crafting habits runs the full spectrum of the rainbow, and just depends on where the inspiration takes me. One day it might be simple chic couture, and the next, off the wall neon explosion. Creation is about the journey, not the destination. And I embrace the journey wholeheartedly.
Much like my crafting, my own personal style runs a bit wild as well.I'm sassy, and sarcastic. I'd drop everything to help someone in need.My hair color changes every few months. I collect the My Little Ponies from my youth as a child of the 80's. I lean toward vintage-inspired pin up fashion. I'm more than a bit of a dork. I love the natural sciences. And hiking, and photography. I'd rather watch an action movie than a rom com. My home goes from persimmon walls and boho color pops with an asian inspired twist , to country farmhouse, to luscious boudoir, and back again. I spoil my dogs rotten. I prefer rum over wine. I garden, and preserve what I grow for later use. I love sushi, and campfires in the backyard under the stars. I rarely sit still. I have WAAAAY to much yarn, and not enough yarn. Or beads. I need more beads.
Live a little, laugh a lot, and love unconditionally. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Be your true self always. Life is too short to take yourself too seriously.

Some of those crazy color combos? Blame him! :)
I'm a very "get your hands dirty" kind of person, and I enjoy creating things that are both pretty and practical. A beautiful item may be nice to look at, but it it can't handle the rigors of being used for it's intended purpose, then what point does it serve? I stand behind my creations, and won't put up anything in my shop that doesn't meet my own standards for durability and craftsmanship.
I tend to find my creative inspiration sparked by the pattern of a bead, or the play of color in a yarn. I like letting the materials tell me where to go with a design.
