AwakenKoselig

AwakenKoselig come with me on a journey to find cozy contentment in your everyday through my Lord and Savior, Jesus Plus, I am cold ALL THE TIME (just ask my husband).

From one perpetually cold person to another, these are my creations for you. Have you ever scrolled through Pinterest and had one particular piece of furniture, art, or clothing just pop out at you? Then you clicked through to see how much it was and instantly tried to forget about it because it was way out of your price range? Yeah, this happens to me ALL THE TIME and usually my thoughts take me

to how I could make the same item myself. Well, that is where DIY Daydreams came from—whether at work, in class, or during dinner with the ‘rents, I was always thinking of things that I could make, create, or just have fun with. Recently, I found my daydreams started shifting towards crocheting —a new pattern that I was dreaming up, a sweater that I really wished I owned, or ways to make crochet more modern and less granny-ish. It got to the point where all I could think of was crochet and buying new yarn to make the pretty things I dreamed about. So, teaching myself how to crochet and making my own scarves/beanies just seemed like the right course of action. But, I could only afford so many skeins of yarn before I would have to resort to selling my car. So, I had to think of a new way to fuel my passion. That’s when I decided to create this Etsy shop. It’s really a win-win for all of us! I can do what I love (crochet), and make beautiful things for you to wear (scarves, headbands, beanies, etc). Only through your purchases can I find new and exciting ways to bring my dreams to life! I hope you love all the items in my shop (they were created specifically for you) and I hope they keep you warm! To stay updated on what patterns and items I’m dreaming up, please follow me on Instagram

These sea turtles might be the most random thing I've ever made (probably besides my son's slug 🥴) but I love them so much! As soon as I saw the pattern from .dsgn I knew I needed to make a few. 😍
Welp, now there's 2 sizes and 3 different colors of sea turtles on the site because I couldn't choose just one! That's right! Mini loveys, sea turtles, and one extra slug for all those boy moms, they're all on the site and ready to ship!

Day 6 - Restocking before market season
Crocheted memory bear with custom heart color. I usually make two of these guys at a time just cuz they tend to go quickly, but I can only make one a day or my wrist will give out. So he'll get a buddy tomorrow. ❤️

In case you ever wonder what I look like on a regular basis, it's this. Headband and top knot. I was a water polo player and swimmer for much of my youth....you can take the girl out of the pool but you can't take the pool out of the girl!
I know I haven't really mentioned it yet, but deluxe twist headbands have been reengineered and reimagined and will also be launching Friday with all our beanies!! They are the perfect top-knot headband and I love them because they let my head breathe while still hiding my messy hair.

Skirted all responsibility today and started a new project! 🥳 One that I got an idea for in college, which must've been about 15 years ago.
I'm not really sure why I decided to embark on this roller coaster right now. Maybe someone really needs this. Maybe it's just my inability to sit still and focus on one thing for too long.
But it's happening and the finished product will most likely be available in a couple weeks, since I won't be able to stop now that I've started.
Any guesses? If you knew me in college, maybe you've seen my original one that I use all the time?????

I had the privilege to pack up this order this week, and I was reminded why I made this line to begin with....
A family friend called me to place an order for a family member and this is what she told me...
"After three miscarriages, they were finally able to conceive through surrogacy. But with pregnancy complications, they had to take the baby via C-section a few weeks early. He's been in NICU and was just released yesterday. So they are celebrating this huge milestone that they finally have their rainbow baby home and in their arms."
A sweatshirt for mom to remember where her strength comes from. A shirt for dad to remember that God is his compass, not the world. And a memory bear with a blue heart to remember the three babies lost but to celebrate the rainbow baby boy they finally got to bring home.
Thank you for allowing me to create special pieces for your family, to help you through tough times and to remind you of the God who is big enough to cover us in our pain and celebrate with us in our joy. 🤎

Let me just preface this by saying I am not an illustrator. BUT the Lord is stretching me in new ways and growing me to be ok with just getting the pictures He gives me on paper without a professional finish to them. So this is an example of that, but not anything as to what I actually wanted to tell you... 🤷🏻‍♀️
What I really wanted to tell you was this: I have been struggling with how to communicate my story to you. When I do my devotions in the mornings I often feel like I have a word to share with you all, but I have no idea how to actually do that in this space.
I've had Isaiah 61:1-3 on my heart for a couple weeks now without really understanding why or knowing how I was going to tell you.
After talking it through, I think the blog is going to be the best way to communicate these to you. And if you didn't know, I have a blog on the site! There's a few posts up there already, but today's is special.
It's all about Isaiah 61:1-3 and it's my prayer for you all. That we would become a forest of oaks of righteousness, all wearing our crowns of beauty. I'd love it if you could give it a read, let me know what you think. I pray for all of you regularly, and this post reveals my heart for you.
My hope is to share more snippets from the Lord with you, using the blog as a way to expand on what He's telling me more, so I hope you come join me over there. Or follow the link in my bio to get there quickly. And sign up for the newsletter so you never miss a new post when I publish them.
If you've made it this far, you're the best. I love you. Thank you for your support of Awaken Koselig and me. 🤎

9 am PST the Pregnancy Loss and Rainbow Baby line launches on the site! Scroll through to see all of the items that will be offered.
This collection has really been a collection of love, and I'm so blessed to be able to provide you with these heartfelt gifts so close to Mother's Day to celebrate all moms have gone through, good and bad.
My prayer is that this Jireh collection speaks to you and ministers to your heart when you're in the middle of the valley, to remember that God is enough. That He will provide for you.

I know some of you were excited about my coffee scrub recipe I posted in stories awhile back, and I've always had the intention to list some up for sale in the shop. Life has gotten the better of me though, and it just hasn't happened.....UNTIL NOW!!
If you're interested in buying a complete coffee scrub, they're listed for sale under the Wellness tab of the shop. BUT if you're like me and you can't afford to buy your own, I did put my recipe on its own blog post! You can check it out on the site now! 🥳
The rainbow baby and pregnancy loss line is still ready to launch April 29th at 9 am PST! Set your calendars!

Last but not least for the Loss and Rainbow Baby line is the Jireh oversized comfy sweater.
I don't know about you, but all I want to do when I'm sad is envelope myself in something cozy and soft, no matter how hot it is outside. I wanted them to feel like a hug from God in your weakness, a warm and encompassing embrace that would remind you that God provides, that He is big enough to carry you and comfort you. And I purposely embroidered the lilly on the sleeve so you'd see it in your daily tasks, a reminder of Matthew 6:25-34
They will be available for pre-order only, so it will be a few weeks until you receive them, but depending on how many are ordered, you may still get it in time for Mother's Day. But that also means you can get whatever color you want for the actual sweatshirt: this ivory, mauve, taupe, brick, black, olive, or dusty blue.

☘️ Happy st. Patrick's Day! ☘️
It makes me so excited to see everyone loving these sparkle velvet dinos as much as the originals. This one is our Olive color and will be debuting on March 25 in the lovey shop update.
Shout-out to this girl who loves "babies" so much she just automatically cuddles them whenever I put one in her arms. She'll probably be the go-to model for these guys because of it. 🤣

Loveys are live!! My email newsletter subscribers got first dibbies yesterday, so these buddies are soon to be at their new home 🥰.
If you'd like to get first access to new product launches, you can sign up for my email list on my site, link in bio.
Also, Instagram was being a little bo**er today, so this notice is going out MUCH later than anticipated since I couldn't post anything all morning. My email newsletter is going to be the most reliable way to stay up to date with new launches and new products going forward.

All the 😍 for this velvet, sparkle unicorn! Guys, she's super cute, but I need to make a few small tweaks to the final look. So my unicorn-loving girl is getting this one, and I'll be making one to sell tomorrow. Hoping to have two for the launch Friday 🤞, but we'll see how the week goes.
You can't see the sparkle very well in the photos, but just know that they make the unicorn. She's majestic. 💖

🎉 Dino Lovey Launch details!! 🎉
Mark your calendars because the Dino and Unicorn Lovey launch is set for next Friday, March 11th at 10 am!!!
You guys have been loving these dino loveys, so here's what I'm thinking: we can do a preliminary smaller launch so I can get a feel for the colors that you guys like and in another 2 weeks I'll have another batch for you guys to swoop up. You all have been loving these dinos so much and I've been working as fast as I can to make as many as I can. In addition to these four, I'll also have a mustard one with the light gray horns. And don't worry, I will also have custom ordering available so if the color you wanted gets swooped up you can just custom order the color you want at no extra charge and that will ensure you get one before the next drop too.
Stay tuned for sneaks of the Unicorn loveys coming next week 👀 They're gonna be soo good guys.
I know a lot of you all have been asking about pricing too. I was finally able to work that out today, and they'll be $53 each. The unicorns will be a little bit more just because the velvet yarn is more expensive, but I haven't worked on the pricing for those yet.
Thank you all so much for all the love on these guys! I really love them too so I'm so happy to see you guys fall for them as hard as I did. 🥰

This dino lovey was finished for approximately .5 seconds before my kids snatched him up and claimed him as their own. So I think he's gonna be a bit hit!
Planning on making a few more colors, some velvet unicorns, and possibly some puppies & bunnies?!
I had a request for a release before Easter so it could go in baskets for your kids. Would you all be interested in that?? We'd have a release date probably at the end of March. What do we think?

❤️Valentine's Day beanies, headbands, Garland, and hearts are live on the site! 💕
Thanks for being patient with me as I worked through some things today. And you may notice that the blankets aren't up on the site yet. I'm hoping to at least get a couple up tonight, but it may be a few weeks til those are up. But, if you're interested in one, just hit me up and I can hook you up. 😉
Also, it should be noted that I revisited the fit of all the cotton beanies and headbands so they fit better than ever before.
What are you getting your hands on for this Valentine's day??
