About

I'm a 40 something woman who's been knitting and crafting on and off for most of my life. I really got back into knitting the last 5 years, actually making a few garments and handbags for myself. I'm married and I have a 23 year old son and two step sons 17 and 12. I think being around all that testosterone got me back into knitting and crafting! I'm inspired by colors and, when I knit I like to let the yarn do the work. Meaning, I like to knit simple things with simple stitches with beautiful yarns. I've recently discovered my love of fabric again and, not being a great sewer I tried my hand at making the jewelry you see in my store.

A lot of people have been asking about the name of my store, "Ivory Pumpkin". Well, it's very difficult to find a unique and interesting store name on Etsy. I wanted something like "Lavender Moon" or "Periwinkle Moon" but, just about anything…

A lot of people have been asking about the name of my store, "Ivory Pumpkin". Well, it's very difficult to find a unique and interesting store name on Etsy. I wanted something like "Lavender Moon" or "Periwinkle Moon" but, just about anything "moon" was taken. My husband said, "what about something pumpkin? You like Halloween and pumpkins and all that stuff." I liked the idea and thought of all my favorite colors and Ivory Pumpkin stood out the most. I think it sounds fun, funky and a little sophisticated. Which is what I hope my little creations are.

I create things I love. There isn't anything I wouldn't wear or use that I post in my store. I hope you like them too. I put a lot of thought into everything I create and everything is created with great care and made to the best of my ability.
