Welcome to Macra-Made! I’m Susanne, blogger, entrepreneur, and macrame lover. It’s the one craft I found I can do without injuring myself…in the past there has been blood, true story!
I’m wife to the best hubby EVER, mom to 3 amazing children, nana to 7 beautiful littles, and pug mom to Pugsley and Winston. Oh, and there’s Rowdy…our Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix, I can’t forget about that crazy little guy!
Pasta is my favorite meal and my worst enemy, along with Coca~Cola. Willpower is not my best quality, but I’m working on eating healthy and drinking more water….ugh!
I’m an introvert that would much rather stay home on the weekend and binge watch HGTV. I enjoy a good conversation with my kids as opposed to texting, call me old fashioned….whatever, LOL!
I love my grandlittles, they mesmerize and amaze me, and I wish I could see them more.
Simplifying Home and Life
We’re empty nesters over here and in this season of life we are tired of all the stuff we have accumulated over the years.
So we’re simplifying and embracing cozy minimalism, my hubby may not know this yet…shhhhh. Not stark white walls with no decor, but rooms that function like we need them to with only things we truly love.
I refuse to be a stuff manager anymore. I love sharing my journey and helping other’s to simplify their life.
I spent countless hours trying to be crafty, burning my fingers on the hot glue gun, and cutting my hand trying to cut through felt fabric. I had thrown in the towel when it came to crafting. Being a crafter was just not my thing,
Until one day while scrolling through Instagram, I happened on a macrame account. OH MY!! I immediately ordered some string and dowel rods and the rest is history.
Now our house is filled with macrame wall hangings and plant hangers and I am determined to share my love of macrame with everyone.
