About

My handmade adventure began in 2010 when I was pregnant with my daughter. I was having some complications & wasn't allowed to be my normal, active self. My mom could see that I was losing my mind so she taught me to knit. She thought it would keep my mind & fingers busy … & that it did! By the end of my pregnancy I had hats, scarves, earwarmers, and mittens. After my beautiful (& healthy!) baby girl was born my husband encouraged me to open an Etsy shop.

I like things to be simple, fun, and fabulous. This is what I try to keep in mind when I'm creating. I like working with different textures & lots of color. I also like to think about the person I'm creating the piece for. Are they catching a cab in the city, are they snuggling up to keep warm in the snowy mountains, are they throwing on a slouch hat because their 10 month old tossed sweet potatoes in their hair? Thinking about things like this really helps me connect with my creations & love my customers even more. I love when people post pictures of themselves rocking their P&M purchases on the Peapod & Me Facebook page or Instagram #peapodandme. It's inspirational for me to see how they wear each item.
