"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” - Maya Angelou

I started Little Treasures in 2006. But before that I have been making handmade gifts for family and friends for several years. I enjoyed seeing my nieces faces when they opened their gift and found a special animal, purse or accessory made especially for them. Now I'm venturing out from family and friends enjoying these handmade items to letting others enjoy them too.


I learned to crochet from my grandmother, Carolina Ortiz, when I was thirteen years old. I was making items with granny squares for years, until I got my first crochet magazine and wanted to do other things.

I would make items by looking at the pictures or buying items made by other crafters and figuring it out on my own. It wasn't until 2006 that I started to learn how to read patterns. This is when a whole new excitement got me crocheting toys, food, purses, blankets, hats, etc.


My parents also have given me some of their talents. My mom, Carmen Ortiz, used to sew our school clothes when we were elementary school. Now she is an avid plastic canvas artist. My dad (Efrain Ortiz) works for an engineering company. He used to help me with my science projects. He is now starting to get involved in model trains.

I am a mom to a cute little 5 year old boy. We lost his father, when my son was only 19 months, to a massive heart attack. Portion of my sales will go to The American Heart Association.
