IMG_0681Hi! My name is Qiana and I am One Crafty Dame. I have a passion for all things crocheted, handmade and last but certainly not least makeup. I have been crocheting since 2004 and I dabble in some knitting (if you count making those ruffle scarves true knitting…lol). However, I am definitely stronger in crocheting than knitting but I hope to change that in the future. I live in North Texas with my husband, three kids, a dachshund/jack russell terrier mix and a guinea pig.   I am a firm believer that handmade items don’t have to look frumpy and that crocheting is just not for your grandmother. One can be stylish in the way the handmade item is placed with other items in your wardrobe add a little pizzazz with some makeup and there you go! What I want to accomplish with this blog is share my crocheting journey with different patterns that I take on, give makeup reviews/tips on things that have helped me along the way and other crafts. The reviews will primarily be drugstore makeup because I feel that you can look like a million bucks without spending a fortune. I would love to hear from you so leave a comment and thanks for visiting One Crafty Dame.
