Hi 👋🏼 My name is Madeline, I am 31 years old raising 4 kiddos, 4 animals & a husband 🤣
I started doing macrame in 2016 after my first daughter was born. I was browsing Pinterest getting ideas for DIY Christmas Presents when I first saw a macrame piece. I ordered macrame books and watched YouTube videos to get the basics down and from there I started fooling around with patterns and designs. Everyone in my family got a macrame piece for Christmas, but truth be told, I cringe very time I see their pieces up because I have evolved sooooo much since 2016.
Macrame is more than a hobby for me. It has become a form of therapy. In the chaos of being a stay at home mom (especially during a pandemic) my art has grounded me and provided a sense of calmness that I look forward to each and every day. If you would have told me when I graduated from UNR in 2013, that I would be a stay at home mom & entrepreneur, I would have laughed. This isn’t what I envisioned back then but I am beyond grateful that this little macrame business has allowed me to stay home with my children while they’re little.
