About

I was previously on etsy as piccoladonna2006.etsy.com

I apologize in advance for any spelling errors you may find: English it's not my primary language as I come from Italy! :) and I live in the States (legally!) from a year. I'm a 28 yo busy mom of 2 wonderful kids and I have this big passion for crochet that I'm trying to use to raise some money selling my "crocheted little things" as I like to call my works. I do not consider this like a job simply because I really enjoy crochet each and every piece!

I learned how to crochet when I was 9-10 from my mom who is a "doilie maker". It was something I liked to do during summer breaks, but never thought I could use it like I'm doing now! I started crocheting during my second pregnancy, I got sick and I had to rest a lot for my little girl's sake so I needed something to keep my hand and mind…

I learned how to crochet when I was 9-10 from my mom who is a "doilie maker". It was something I liked to do during summer breaks, but never thought I could use it like I'm doing now! I started crocheting during my second pregnancy, I got sick and I had to rest a lot for my little girl's sake so I needed something to keep my hand and mind busy while resting. Most of the works I did during that time are now for sale in my etsy shop. But so far never thought about selling anything, I was just having a lot of fun! Last year my hubby was out of job and we needed to buy clothes for my children...somehow I had a couple of skeins of yarn and I created warm sweaters for them (I think I have a pic of my daughter wearing it). When we went out everybody was asking me where I found those sweater....and orders came to me. I used to crochet gifts for family and friends and other orders arrived....then I tried to crochet some jewelry pieces and decided to try a craft show....it went pretty good and that's why I finally decided to seriously sell my works, even on line.

My inspiration comes from little daily things....the necessity of a warm garment, the willing of embellish my house...and so on. Sometime I use pattern from magazine or from the web, thought I never literally follow them. I just used them like an inspiration, elaborating my own personalization. Some other times, the personalization come along while I'm working :) Or again, like my crocheted jewelry I just created by my self. I just enjoy doing every and each piece and I hope you too can enjoy have it.
