I am Temitope Oke, all round creative. I crochet, paint, draw, design and sew. On days when I’m not doing these, I’m writing stuff and creating content or sitting pretty at my desk at work. I like to experience beautiful things and people. I also love hot amala and comfortable shoes. In my freetime, I enjoy going to the cinema, it’s like my happy place. I like good books, relaxing music and love stories. Used to think I’d grow to become a fine lawyer, but look at me doing the beautiful things I love, stringing yarn to create beautiful crochet masterpieces.
