About

Hello everyone!

My name is Rachel and I like to be called Rae. I have been happily married for 3 years and have a 21 month old daughter named Kira. I have lived in Northern California for most of my life.

I have been a stay-at-home mom/wife for a year and a half now and recently found more free-time to explore creative hobbies. I have always loved working with my hands. In August of 2009 I decided to give making crochet Amigurumi a try. This required learning how to crochet and how to read patterns.

My husband bought a book by Ana Paula Rimoli, "Amigurumi World" and everything pretty much took off from there. After a few minutes on the phone with my mom, who also crochets, I got the 'gist' of the art and began practicing. Probably after five tries of crocheting an amigurumi head, I moved on and began…

Hello everyone!

In August of 2009 I decided to give making crochet Amigurumi a try. This required learning how to crochet and how to read patterns.

My husband bought a book by Ana Paula Rimoli, "Amigurumi World" and everything pretty much took off from there. After a few minutes on the phone with my mom, who also crochets, I got the 'gist' of the art and began practicing. Probably after five tries of crocheting an amigurumi head, I moved on and began creating the cute little toys in Ana's book.

Every chance I got from taking care of my family and home I was crocheting. It quickly became an escape and relaxation time. I would crochet while my daughter took her naps, while watching TV, at friends houses, you name it! Since then I have finished 11 projects. Some from Ana's books, some booties for Kira, a matching bracelet and ring, gifts for friends, a huge Manta Ray of my very own and I even took a hand at creating Ele from the kids show Pocoyo for Kira! Which leads me to say the original reason I took up amigurumi making was to make toys for friends and family and possibly sell them online as handmade items for others to enjoy.

Recently I tried my hand at creating crochet jewelry in response to a request from a family member for their beauty salon. To my surprise I enjoyed it very much! Now I like to come up with new ideas and ways to use ribbon and crochet thread.

Please feel free to talk to me about anything I'd love to hear from you!
