Hello! Welcome! Thank you for the interest in my shop!

Who am I you ask? Well...
My name is Lisa. I live near Detroit, MI which is where I studied "Advertising Design" at the College for Creative Studies(CCS) back in 2003/06. A year or so before graduation I became pregnant with my first child and put school on hold so I could dedicate my time to my family, which I put first over pretty much everything. Since then I've been raising a pretty awesome family. I am married to the greatest guy I've ever known and have two of the greatest kids I could ever ask for. Awwww...I know. Sappy. Whatever. It's true.

So why a crochet shop on Etsy? Read on.
Since having my wonderful children I've really been missing the creative side of myself. Don't get me wrong having children can definitely bring out your creative side but I wanted…

Since having my wonderful children I've really been missing the creative side of myself. Don't get me wrong having children can definitely bring out your creative side but I wanted to do something more for "me". So because all of the lovely women in my generation's past have been life long crocheter's & knitter's (hence the name I chose for my shop) I chose crocheting for my creative outlet.

Who taught me my sweet skills:)?
My grandma is the one who introduced the art of crochet to me back when I was a snotty teenager and thought crochet was only for "old folks" and "nerds". Well In May,2012, this "nerd"decided to pick up the old crochet hook again and "re teach" myself with a bit of help again from my grandma...It's going to get sad for a minute...Unfortunately in the midst of learning a second time around my grandma unexpectedly passed way. She adored crochet. She was always crocheting something as far back as I can remember. So I decided I was going to keep on crocheting (and get good at it) in her honor. Now that I know what I'm doing with a crochet hook...I truly love it and can see why my grandma loved it as well. I just wish she was here to see my creations :(
*R.I.P grandma I miss you every day!*

Okay enough sadness....
Your not crazy about any of my item's listed?
Whats wrong with you! Why not? Just kidding. To each his/her own but maybe your dreaming of an accessory for a child? A baby? A pet? Well then send me a message, let me know and together we can make your dream come true. Are you thinking of a certain kind of accessory that i dont have in the shop? Message me some ideas and I will do my best to get that item in there. NOTE: a custom item may take a few days to a couple of weeks to finish and the price of your item will go up slightly but don't let that hesitate you from asking about a custom piece. I'd love to work with you. Please convo me or send a message in the "request custom item" tab in my shop if any of this is something you would like to consider.

Ok! I know, enough already!!
Thanks for checking out my shop and taking the time to read about me :) Any questions about shipping and all that jazz please head over to my policies page. If the answer your looking for is not there, send me a message :)

Peace, love & happy day's to you!!
