About

Hi, my name is Brandi.

I am a wife and a mother to a toddler with lots of personality. I also work full time as an engineer at a large filtration company.

I first learned to crochet and knit from my grandmother when I was quite young. I don't remember how old I was, but I do still have a blanket I crocheted for one of my dolls if that gives you a clue. Of course in my high-school and college years I didn't do much crocheting or knitting because let's face it, it just isn't the cool thing to do. And when you are a sorority sister you have an image to keep up. After graduating from
college and moving back home to start my family I made friends with girls that were also starting their families. I didn't want to give these girls just anything for their new bundles of joy so I picked up the crochet hooks again. I made…

Hi, my name is Brandi.

I am a wife and a mother to a toddler with lots of personality. I also work full time as an engineer at a large filtration company.

I first learned to crochet and knit from my grandmother when I was quite young. I don't remember how old I was, but I do still have a blanket I crocheted for one of my dolls if that gives you a clue. Of course in my high-school and college years I didn't do much crocheting or knitting because let's face it, it just isn't the cool thing to do. And when you are a sorority sister you have an image to keep up. After graduating from
college and moving back home to start my family I made friends with girls that were also starting their families. I didn't want to give these girls just anything for their new bundles of joy so I picked up the crochet hooks again. I made blankets and buntings and hats. And as I was looking for the perfect patterns for these girls I found more and more things I wanted to make.

Then it was my turn. And when I found out I was having a little girl I wanted all the pretty hats and bows and flowers for her hair, little did I know she would be a year and a half before I would even be able to attempt
to put a clip in her hair. This is when I began venturing into making bows! Big bows, little bows, clips, flowers, you name it. And once my little girl was born I no longer had the urge to return to work. I just wanted to be home all day making pretty things and spending time with her. That was when I had the wonderful idea to start selling what I was making. I still have a long way to go before I will be able to stay home and craft
all day, but it is a dream that I will forever strive to reach.

Currently my shop is a little more geared towards girls because of my little princess, but I would love to hear ideas on items to offer for boys. If you have something you want, but can't find let me know, I'd love to take a shot at fulfilling your wish!
