About Rose

My name is Rose Beerhorst I’m 21. I love working with my hands whether that means crafting, gardening, or cooking. I’ve always dreamed a little  to big for my own good! I grew up in Grand Rapids MI, my parents are Rick and Brenda Beerhorst, I’m the oldest of six kids, and have been unschooled my whole life. I’m making my (very humble) living as an crafter/artist!

  1. Hi Rose, thank you for writing your blog. I homeschool my children and as I think about their future, I find what you are achieving very encouraging. On a crafty note: when you are doing a granny square rug how do you keep the stitches firm and neat when you move up a row and change colour? My changeovers are a bit sloppy. All the best for your plans, Lydia.
    P.S. I love the rich colours you use in your work.

    • Wow thanks! my “change overs” or just when I tie on a new strip of fabric and crochet one more round. what exactly do you mean by sloppy?

      • When you tie on a new strip and do one more round. My joins seem loose and it takes a lot of work when I weave in the ends to make it look like the tension is even with the rest of the blanket. The seem stays really obvious, at least to me. Thanks for trying to help.

      • I guess I don’t really know how to answer your question… I don’t do much weaving in of ends. I just let it all hang out! except for at the beginning and end of corse. but if your talking about crocheting a blanket with real yarn those fine details might be more important. Sorry I cant offer better advice! Try googling it

  2. Thanks Rose, I’m on it. Happy spinning!

  3. I wrote a little bit about you on my blog, all the best in your craft and life.

  4. Dear Rose,

    First I would like to say that I love your work and your family life. I find it very inspiring. I’m an art teacher and a starting artist in The Netherlands and your story helps me to continue what I’m doing and love to do. I follow your blog and hope to see more of your life and work.
    I want to ask you a very direct question: For my own blog/ website I would like to put a link to your website, so that my fiends can see your work too. Is that OK with you? It’s strange to write this to someone I don’t know, in a different coutry, in a different language (I hope my English is not too bad) and maybe it’s the same for you. So would you let me know?

    All the best,


  5. PS. I mean that I would like to write about you on my blog. 🙂
