Courtney Van Auken's Profile
I am a stay-at-home-mom to two Ethiopian beauties - 5 years old and 1 year old. I draw most of my inspiration from them and other children (and their moms).
I love Ethiopia (my daughters' first home) and have enjoyed all of our trips there. Any income I make from my Etsy shop is used to cover adoption expenses and past/future travel costs. Thank you for your support in our efforts!
I started crocheting three years ago when my sister bought me a "teach yourself to crochet" set and have built up a healthy obsession since.
I love making children's hats. Many of my early hats found their inspiration in beloved Sesame Street characters like Elmo, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch. I have since expanded into fun animals, fruits, veggies, headbands, diaper covers, and anything else fun and cute!…
