B.Tru...

B.Tru Creative is a unique shop on Etsy I recently came across.
I say unique because everything in this shop is a one-of-a-kind, no pattern design by the shop owner! 
The shop owner, Reanna, makes handmade crochet items and my favorite her scarves! 
Here is my scarf from B.Tru Creative...
It's chunky, super soft, coral and pure perfection!
It's so warm and cozy and perfect for MN winters!  I'll also be wearing it in the spring with tees and tanks though.  I love it!
 

 
Here is a little bit about Reanna, the shop owner!
 
I’m 27 and love anything crafty, creative, or antique/vintage…oh and my favorite color is PINK! I grew up in a very crafty family. We would craft at the dinner table and spend weekends at either craft shows or antique shows. I learned how to crochet from a friend at a women’s retreat conference when I was in high school. Funny thing is, my mom had learned to knit from her friend and then tried to teach me but I hated it and then I later learned how to crochet and love it! I have accumulated SO much yarn it’s insane! I always get tons of new ideas and go buy the yarn for them and then I don’t end up finding the time to make them (hence why I don’t have a huge selection on my Etsy). What 27 year old has Rubbermaid totes full of yarn in her room? A lot of people will ask what pattern I use for my items and the truth is, I’ve never followed a pattern. I always make things up as I go or I have a vision and just trail and error until I get it to turn out how I was imagining it in my head. Otherwise, I just see a picture of something and I figure out how to recreate it. I also love getting custom orders and being able to create what people need or want to fit their style or house décor.

Unfortunately, about a year and half ago I lost my full-time job and was stuck with a lot of time on my hands and not a lot of money so I got my yarn and hooks out and started going to town. Then I used my photography skills and a friend and created an Etsy account and have been trying to sell my creativity since.
I love the Reanna is so creative and comes up with all her patterns on her own.  That means each item she makes is unique and one of a kind.
