Hello there and thank you so much for visiting my spot. Let me tell you a little about me. I am a proud wife and mother who loves to do crafts. I opened up this shop so that I can share my work with the world and also to meet two kinds of wonderful people (People who love to knit, crochet, sew, etc, and people who appreciate handmade work.)
I have been crocheting since I was a teenager, and have many funny stories of how not expand doilies from my teenage years (oh my poor mother still has some of those early Picasso works displayed in her house). I learned to knit as an adult. I fell in love with loom knitting and moved on to knitting with two needles quickly after. I have been sewing here and there for many many years, until I once needed a skirt, and saw that the price for that particular skirt said $275. (I almost fainted, and then I took a good look at that skirt and decided that I could do it.) The rest is history.
I’ve been asked several times about the name Olubunmi, so I will answer some questions here.
Q – How do you pronounce Olubunmi?
A- It is pronounced Oh-loo-boon-me.
Q – How did I come up with such a name?
A – I follow the Yoruba culture, and when you go through a rite of passage, you are given a new name. The name chosen for me was Olubunmi.
Q – What does Olubunmi mean?
A. It means Gift from God.
‘Every person is a world’ says my father-in-law. I have to agree. We all have unique traits that differentiate us from another and at the same time unify us as human beings. I live in my own world where my universe keeps expanding, with many avenues, from family, culture, tradition, friends, and life.
Any other fun tid bits about me? First and foremost I would like to save the planet by doing little things to change my lifestyle. I reuse bags, try to find ways to be greener, and I like to commute by bicycle very often. Don’t get my wrong, we do drive, but if I can bike it, then I will.
I would like to share with you the creative world of Olubunmi, as well as the world of Creative Yarn Art , and handmade art which can be as unique as you. Feel free to contact me and to subscribe to my newsletter.
Many blessings and regards!
