She started off with this…

At Walmart


“I use this yarn firstly because the colors are awesome! The texture is nice & smooth. It’s easy on the fingers. It’s of good quality, no knotting/kinking. It’s strong & durable, as it also holds up well in the washing machine (on gentle cycle of course). It’s also great for blankets, covers, clothing, etc., as it’s quite warm & flexible for warmer temperatures too. I LOVE IT!”~Sloopy of Sloopy’s Crochet, LLC.

Got it all ready…

She finished with this…

1 Blanket (Size: Full-Queen)

2 Pillowcases

1 Footstool Cover

✨✍🏾Kintsukuroi – By, Maxwanette A Poetess✍🏾✨


The journey of this life has left scars,

embedded deeply within my being.


Experienced moments,

become the spider-like web of construction.


Mirrored cracks & creases,

are the consistent reminders that I lived.


I wear my battle-wounds PROUDLY,

for they’re the trophies of life continuing &

lessons learned.


As I Am,

exhibiting the freckles of time,


Honored preservation,

a reminder of the existence I bare.



I breathe & live again.




“This poem was inspired by the Artist(The Alchemist) of the piece pictured. I added my gold lines to support this poem.

*Kintsukuroi (“golden mend”) is the Japanese art of mending broken pottery using lacquer resin laced with gold or silver.
