Welcome to Creatively Stitched, where I share fun plastic canvas, cross-stitch, and crochet patterns!
My name is Jennifer. I am a Christian mom of 4, happily married to my high school sweetheart for 25 years now. My husband and I met in high school marching band – he played saxophone and I was in the color guard. We have been together ever since. (Our oldest 2 kids are graduates of the same marching band and my two youngest daughters are both currently members.)
My husband and I have a grown daughter and son, a 16 year old daughter who is a junior in high school, and a 14 year old daughter who is a freshman in high school. My kids are the inspiration for the majority of my projects and a lot of my patterns started as gifts for them over the years.
I have been a blogger since 2008 and have owned many sites on many different topics. My main blog for years was Modern Day Homemaker, but it strayed over the years from its original purpose and became mainly a review blog. Through it all though, my passion has been blogging about making things for my family – whether delicious recipes or fun crafts and DIY projects for the house.
I love all things crafty and giving handmade gifts. My favorite crafts are paper crafts, rubber stamp carving, crochet, and plastic canvas. My 2 youngest daughters love to craft as well and they love scrapbooking, crocheting, and jewelry making.
I have been designing craft patterns off and on for 20 years now. So I thought I would start Creatively Stitched to get all my patterns in one place so others could enjoy them. Some are available here for free and some are available for purchase in my Creatively Stitched Etsy Shop.
I hope you enjoy my craft patterns. If you have any ideas for my next pattern, be sure to leave me a comment below. I would love to hear from you. Happy crafting!
