About

I like to make things! and I really like when people like the things I make!

I was born in Orlando, Florida. When I was 19, I moved to Boston and attended Massachusetts College of Art. I had no clue about seasons or cold weather, and as much as I loved to see the leaves change, I hated the freezing winters. I created the Smitten in 1999 out of necessity. I was dating a Massachusetts native and unlike me he was acclimated to the cold. I would not leave the house unless completely covered and holding hands through thick gloves seemed impersonal and awkward. Hence the birth of the Smitten!

I moved to Los Angeles, California where I obtained my degree in Art History. I lived abroad in Florence, Italy for two years where I studied, worked and learned Italian. Now I am back in Florida making Smittens during the Autumn and Winter…

Now I am back in Florida making Smittens during the Autumn and Winter seasons and working as a travel photographer for www.goabbeyroad.com during the summer.

All of my Smitten’s are hand-made. The adorable cards that come with the smitten’s are hand-designed by my father Al Carroll; he is an old school graphic designer (meaning NO Computers, a steady hand, and a lot of patience.)

Thank you so much for your interest in my Smitten Mittens, Hope you enjoy my product!

Stay warm,
Hannah
