Guest Blogger Tutorial: How To Make Your Own Leggings w/ The Crafty Gemini for Mimi G


Hi Darlings!

I am so happy to introduce my girl Vanessa Wilson, some of you may know her already as the Crafty Gemini. Vanessa and I became friends quickly via the web and since she does SO MANY things I can only wish I did I thought it would be great to have her create a project for you guys....she just might do MORE then I do in a day because on top of everything else she has a DAG ON FARM! LOL

Here is a little more on The Crafty Gemini:
Vanessa Wilson is a former law professor who quit her job for a full-time career as a wife, mother, organic farmer and YouTube video creator and has never looked back. Vanessa is the founder and proprietor of Crafty Gemini, a do-it-yourself video tutorial business that showcases her many talents via her YouTube channel – TheCraftyGeminiShe enjoys teaching practical and functional skills to anyone willing to learn.  Her videos included step-by-step instruction on things like sewing, quilting, cooking, crafting and organic gardening. Vanessa has been featured in the New York Times and on ABC's 20/20 for her video tutorials on YouTube. She credits her clear and concise style of instruction with her success. Vanessa lives with her husband, two children and 50+ animals on a small organic farm outside of Gainesville, FL.


Vanessa will be back in a few weeks to do another great project to jazz up those leggings!
