HATSBYANNE1942
My love for this creative expression of art began nine years ago. After retiring from a teaching career of 31 years, I discovered a very special and unique talent for crocheting. My first hat was made for a lady, named Mary, who was in a nursing home in Castle Rock, Colorado. Much to my surprise, after discovering that I couldn't read the pattern or directions, I simply began with a needle and yarn and a beautiful purple hat appeared. This is artistry with yarn. Hats by Anne allows me to create beautiful one-of-a-kind hats, scarves, headbands, neck wraps and shawls . Each item is an original, never duplicated and numbered one of one.

My yarns are selected for their quality and appearance. Each item is given an appropriate name and it becomes a special part of my collection. If you are not fully satisfied with your purchase, you will receive a full refund. In the nine years that I have created this unique quality line, I have had no returns or complaints. There are hundreds of created pieces that are being worn and enjoyed by people not only in the United States, but internationally in Spain, Australia, Italy, Canada and Ireland. Every creation is special to me. All of my products are posted on line in my Etsy shop at www.hatsbyanne1942.etsy.com.
My home is smoke free. When you wear an item created by "An Artist with Yarn", you will be wearing a unique and beautiful garment.

CROSSES FROM THE SEA
My new found creative talent came at age 72 in January, 2015. We live on the beach in Orange Beach, Alabama, and it was here that Crosses From The Sea came into existence. Each day I visit the beach and collect broken pieces of seashells that I sculpture into unique and one of a kind hanging Crosses. Each Cross hangs by a natural opening in a seashell. The treasures from the sea are never altered and are used just as they are found. The Cross you purchase is unique to anything else in the world...there is no duplicate. These Crosses are beautifully sculptured with no mold nor forms, but artistic ability.
When you purchase a Cross From The Sea, created by "A Seashell Artist", you have a keepsake that can be handed down for generations.
I believe that God wants these Crosses to represent broken lives that can become a wonderful new and whole creation. They are wonderful gifts for brides and grooms just beginning a life's journey together. Each couple brings parts of their own lives into a marriage. My Crosses are symbolic of parts of each life coming together into a beautiful whole.

COLORADO CANYON CREATION
My grandson and I hike the canyons of Colorado and collect small pieces of Mother Nature and mountain glass that we create into tiny sculptures that represent the beauty of our grand state. If you have visited Colorado, you'll understand the need to have a tiny replica to bring back memories of the grandeur. They are small and are the perfect gift for someone who has fallen in love with Colorado.

Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back.
