Celebrate Mom with guest Maureen Cracknell (and giveaway)

It's Day 4 of Celebrate Mom here at Happy Quilting!!!  A fun filled week of  daily guest posts and daily fabric giveaway's for you !!!  Today, I am super excited to welcome my guest Maureen of Maureen Cracknell Handmade!!!


Maureen is an amazingly creative individual and I am so happy to have her as a good friend!!   She runs a thriving Etsy shop with the cutest handmade crowns, is a member of both the Riley Blake and Art Gallery design teams, and uses her amazing sense of color, design, and artistic talent to constantly create unique and stunning projects!!  So without further ado, let's toss it over to Maureen!!

Hi, I'm Maureen and I blog at Maureen Cracknell Handmade, I'm so excited that Melissa asked me to join in as a "Celebrate Mom" guest! When Melissa reached out to me, by her second sentence, "I realized a while back that one of the most frequent comments I get is "how do you do this all with kids...," I was ready to respond YES! to her invite right away. This is something I am asked quite I bit as well, and was thrilled to have the chance to share a little on this topic! Thank you so much Melissa!!

My creation

As a busy mother of three, finding the time to pursue this passion for sewing has and will always be an ever-changing work in progress. Thankfully, my children are all intensely creative individuals, and are wonderfully encouraging when it comes to my own creating. Especially when they get to be a part of the process, often "helping" me in someway -- that's the key! When I started blogging, I wasn't sewing yet, I was a big knitter and everything I made was either for my children or inspired by one of them! When I would get a new project idea, I would describe what I was hoping to make to at least one of them and ask them to draw out "the pattern" for me. This would both get their creativity flowing and make them feel proud that they were a part of what was being made. They would be so excited to see the finished item, they were more than happy to see me working away until we were all done! Mwah, my super tricky secret!

Here are a couple examples of just that, that I had shared back in the early days of my blog, before I even began to sew!

A Jedi sweater, designed by and for Jacob : :

Jedi Sweater -- Knitting Project from 2/17/10

A Kaiden inspired stitched, felted basket : :

Kaiden Inspired Felted Basket -- from long ago!

When I decided to learn to sew, my children continued that same role. They have always been a huge part of this amazing journey -- helping me, creating along side me, and more than anything, inspiring me!

An impromptu sewing session  -- silly felt hats, designed by Jacob : : 

An Impromptu Sewing Session... from the mind of a seven year old

Since we bought our first home in November, we have all been sharing a creative space, and so far that is working out perfectly! 

Come on in!!

The activity table in the center of the room is full of art supplies for the kids to use while I sew!

Cutting Mat/Craft Table

I try my best to keep our space organized and fun, so when we are sharing the space together, everyone is happy and comfortable, and we can make the most of our sewing/craft time together. Being surrounded by beautiful fabrics and having lots of supplies on hand is really important to me, so I make sure to keep the kids stocked with new, quality supplies of their own, too.

Creative Space

For me, my blog isn't just a place for me to share my daily makings, fabric stashing, tutorials, and giveaways -- it's a journey of not just how I have grown as a creative person, but how we have together as a family. Perhaps what I'm most proud of, and I know my boys won't mind me saying this, is how all this sewing has formed such a special relationship between my daughter Haila and I. I could never put into words how much a part of all of this she has been! I'm getting emotional just thinking about it now. Besides being the inspiration behind so many of my projects, she is such a great little helper. I believe that sewing will be a very special part of our relationship forever!

our aprons

It's my wish that each of my children grows up to be just as passionate about something, as I am about sewing, and that they find the love, encouragement, and support that I have found through them and the amazing people in this community!

Thank you so much for having me today! Maureen

I follower her blog weekly and enjoy when she emails me notes. I find her ideas expiring and eclectic, which I love. I really laughed when she became part of the Fat Qtr Gang and the photo was a hoot, I had called her MC from the beginning and her name became MC Hammer.........I enjoy both of you girls and envy how you find time to create beautiful work. I dont have kids at home and cant imagine how you find the time. I do believe we all have Wonderful Mother's Day memories and wish you both many more. Being a Gandma now, is even better if you can believe that. xox

  117. I certainly enjoy seeing how other creative moms manage their time and children, and their own and children's creativity. I enjoy it so much that my little boy loves to help mom bake and cut pieces of fabric. it's fun when I'm putting together blocks in Quilt Pro on the computer, he likes helping to color the quilts. both boys are very protective of the quilts I make them!
    the color choice is so hard! I tend to use a lot of blue in my meager stash, but I love orange. I think I would choose orange. since I can't get a longarm for Mother's Day, fabric is great too.
