Farm Fresh Ventures Box #9

Sorry for posting this late, but I've been adjusting to being back at work, pulling my house back together, and everything else.  Nonetheless, here is last week's produce box.

A bunch of kale, sweet corn, honeydew melon, basil, peaches, and tomatoes. 

Friday's Feature: Maryum Karim

Meet Maryum Karim.

AE:  Who are you and what is it that you do/make?    
MK:  My name is Maryum Karim and I am the owner/CEO of Yarncoture.  I make hand knit and crocheted accessories for women, men, children and great accessories for your home.

AE:  How did you get started/What is the motivation behind your work?  
MKIt all started when I wanted to repair a blanket that was given to my son.  I remembered that I had learned to crochet in my pre-teen years so I attempted to make repairs.  After receiving a gift of knitting needles and yarn from my mother I went online for instructions on how to knit.  I really enjoyed it and began to make blankets for my children.  People hinted to me that I should open my own store and Yarncoture was born!

AE:  Where can we find your work? 
MKYou can find my work on Etsy at and my website:

Something Sweet and a Giveaway!

Many of you know that I have a Youtube channel.  Blogging is my first love, but I also enjoy making videos too.  Most of the time I don't use the same content in both places though.  Anyways, something very sweet happened while I was away. While I was gone, all of a sudden my subscriber number jumped through the roof (for me).  I never kept up with how many people subscribed, but then I kept getting email after email of new subbies.  Overnight my channel grew with around 50+ new subscribers!

So I created a video in response...

Then I was watching some videos from the channels I subscribe to and this is what I discovered...

I was overjoyed to say the least!

Well, if you want to enter the giveaway, feel free.  Subscribing to my channel is not required, but if you already have a Youtube channel and leave a comment underneath the video, then consider yourself entered.  I thought it only fair to share with you, my blog friends, because this is where it all started!

Happy Tuesday,
