My name is Olguine (O-GINe) Brutus and I’m a self taught knitter and crocheter. I grew up in the church but It was only in recent years that I began to learn what a relationship with God really looks like. I’m always learning more about the Creative Creator who created me to be creative.
I first taught myself to knit in 2012. Shortly after I started going through depression, you know, feeling like a failure. I was constantly afraid of trying new things because, “What if this is another thing I fail at?”
Because of that I was always seeking purpose. Which surprisingly (or unsurprisingly) led me to seeking the Lord. I remembered reading a verse one day that changed my life. It was on a bible cover that my Sunday school teacher had.
‘For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord , thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.’
The Lord has shown me more than enough times that He keeps His promises. So I prayed for this word, this promise to unfold for me now when I needed it the most. And I was led back to knitting in late 2015.
In my years as a maker, I’ve met tons of amazing people and learned a variety of things. Not just about knitting but on how to run a small business as well. In 2017, I made my first solo trip and it was then that I discovered my love for travel and I could not stop the need of wanting to see more of the world around me.
Now that you’ve read all about me, I’d love to hear from you.
Tell me about your dreams and passions or just say hello.
Either way I’m excited to learn about you, so shoot me an email!
