Micheline L's Profile

About

Hi and Welcome!

I have 3 grown sons, 5 grand-daughters, and 1 grandson. I've been crocheting and knitting for something like 50 years (I can't believe it!) Yes, I am an "oldie but goodie" loving what I do.

My youngest son introduced me to online selling in 2004 and I haven't looked back ever since. My fun really began when I found Etsy. All I can say is "thank god for Etsy".

I'm a tiny woman with a long name -- Micheline, which is my real name. And because it's long, it's acquired many nicknames. My mom used to call me "Mimi", hence the name of my shop. A hundred years ago (lol), my girlfriend and I gave each other nicknames -- Curly for her and Mickey for me. Mine stuck. Hers didn't.

I had an uncle who used to call me "Mitch"; a friend called me "Michelle"; and yet another who called me "Mick", but those are out of commission, thank goodness! I sign my emails with "Mickey" and my etsy convos "Mimi" and emails to my kids with "Mom" with hugs and kisses (whewwww!)

I've decided to come clean with my name for fear of losing any credibility, although I did bravely expose my age above. It is a rather long and complicated story, especially for a tiny little grandma who stands only 4' 11", but then who absolutely loves to crochet and knit, so all should be forgiven.

What do I like besides crocheting and knitting? I like photography and colors -- all colors, well, maybe except medium lime green. I try to add interest and beauty to my Etsy listing photos by adding frames and pictures, all to give my potential buyers an uplifting experience.

Hope you all like my items, and thank you so much for taking the time to read my short (lol) bio which brings me to say, I also like writing!!
