I missed Meet The Maker Monday so I’ll leave this here today. Happy Tuesday!
I’ve noticed many new followers so I guess it time for a little into. First thank you for following and wanting to know/see what’s going on over here in my space. For those that don’t know my name is Terra and I’m the dyer and everything else behind Mitchell’s Creations. I’m a 40 year old Georgia girl who now lives in Louisiana for the past 11 years. My family is still in Georgia so we visit often. I am married with two kids and we always have a dog or two to keep us company. Besides knitting, crocheting and yarn I love to bake and am a self proclaimed foodie. I’ve always an still am that quite one that doesn’t have much to say but will give you a smile.
Here you’ll find a lot of hand dyed yarn, some project bags, maybe some stitch makers and some knitting, crochet and seeing when I have the time. I started out making project bags because I got tired of carrying my yarn in plastic bags and had a lot of fabric that I gathered over the years to make other projects. And I was a stay at home mom looking for a way to make a little change her and there. So I decided to stick a few in my Etsy shop. Fast forward a few years past that to 2016 a pattern came out that I wanted to make and I wanted some really nice yarn to make it. I started looking online but since I didn’t know too much about indie dyed yarn I was nervous about buying it online. I then ventured to my local yarn shop and looked around. I was in there a long time and while they had pretty yarn the fingering weight section was small and I didn’t see what I was looking for. I really wanted to make this shawl so I started researching dyeing yarn. One time after all the bills were paid and there was extra money left I took $136 and bought a pack of yarn and four or five dye powders. My first colorways were Who Said Unicorns Aren’t Real, Golden Ochre, Maci Grey and Zombie Butterfly. The last three were the ones I used in my shawl. At the time I felt bad about spending the money not realizing it was an investment into what turned into now a full time business. (Continued in the comments)
Vema! Meu povo é muito criativo cê loko!
Beleza ancestral, cultura milenar.
A importância de buscar inspirações, reinventar e valorizar a nossa beleza através das possibilidades que a nossa estética nos dá.
Mesmo contrariando os ensinamentos eurocentricos que nos fizeram e infelizmente ainda nos faz rejeitarmos a nossa estética natural. Sigo contrariando e exaltando os meus pq sempre acreditei que se permitir, experimentar e resgatar poderiam me aproximar ainda mais de quem eu realmente sou.
Essa técnica é chamada de #passiontwist e foi criada por Kailyn Rogers que desde 2018 vem difundindo essa mistura de #goddeslocs e #senegalesetwist e pode ser classificado como um penteado de proteção. E como eu “nem gosto” de mexer nos meus cabelos e repassar o que sei acabei fazendo esse tutorial rapidinho.
Já era pra ter postado a muito tempo, mas não encontrava uma música que se encaixasse tão bem nessa chuva de amor estético. Aí lembrei da música da Queen @jessicagasparoficial que tem um trabalho lindo e rico multiculturalmente. African Beauty é perfeita.
Me fala aí o que mais te inspira a ser você mesme?! 🎤 Kwabena Awutey 🇬🇭 feat. @jessicagasparoficial 🇧🇷 🎹🎼 Leeroy Molly
I’m so proud to even say that Im apart of this beautiful culture of strong, talented, brave and very intelligent individuals who have paved a way for all of us to show that we can do anything. No matter how “different we are” .... “we are amazing” 🖤🖤🖤🖤 #blackhistorymonth#google#googleus#blackgirlmagic#blackboyjoy
They lied to you when they told you darkskin wasn’t beautiful! Sometimes I think back and I wonder what if I had bleached my skin all those years people would criticise my skin tone! What if I wasn’t confident in myself the way I was and I had allowed society to convince me that I wasn’t beautiful enough! .
I wouldn’t be here today completely in love with all of me! Absolutely everything, from my natural hair to my big lips, to my not so pointy nose to the dark colour of my skin! God doesn’t make any mistakes at all!
LOVE YOUR MELANIN SIS! ITS MAGICAL 🇬🇭 🌴🍫 💕

You have within you dreams & desires that you've always hoped to achieve. There is a reason WHY you have the desire on the inside of you. Its because you were created to bring the dream to life. However, along the way, naysayers, roadblocks & disappointments may have caused you to fear stepping out. Today is your day to take a step towards that dream. Believe in yourself. Take one step at a time & things will start to align for you.

Man, where do I begin. When I was younger I was not allowed to wear fake hair. My mother God rest her soul would always take care of my real hair. After her passing at the age of 12, my grandmother stepped in and started taking care of my hair. So grateful for her!
Along my journey, around the age 14 I started to become curious of fake hair. Because I seen a lot of other girls wearing it and it looked nice. But deep down when I think about it. This was a turning point in my personal identity. At that moment one thought created a false reality for me. Which then gave a limited mindset that in order to be pretty you had to have fake hair. Don’t get me wrong there’s nothing wrong with fake hair. However, I allowed myself to give something else power of me because I didn’t feel worthy enough. I was lost and I was just trying to find my way. Losing my mom, being bounced around from household to household, didn’t have my dad in my life for about two years after her passing, and more. Then placed into a new environment with tons of options. .
I was just trying to figure it out. The point that I’m trying to make is just because you’re lost doesn’t mean you have to lose your identity in to something that isn’t you. And that looks different for everyone. Only YOU know what that is.
I’m just so grateful that recently I’m going back to the basics finding my true authentic self. Not saying that I was fake, my authentic self means nothing can take my power. Beauty starts within 🙌🏾.
Thank you Queen for asking me to share part of my story and I hope that this will encourage somebody in the process. .
