About

I'm a SAHM of 2 little monsters, who I love to use as models (as you may have noticed). I am married to my best friend, who is a US Marine. I have a creative personality and love any kind of arts and crafts, especially crochet. I have been at it consistently for the past 3 years, and I love trying new ideas and creating new designs.

Other than making things, I also love having adventures with my husband and two kids, enjoying the California sunshine and visiting both of our families in Washington. My family is my first priority, and above everything else, I'm a mommy and a wife.

While I love creating special, custom items for you, please remember that I am only one woman! I try to get each custom order completed and shipped out as quickly as possible, however I try not to work during the weekends as this is my time dedicated to my family. I always try…

How I got started in crochet....

My grandma taught me how to crochet when I was around 12 years old, and I didn't really stick with it. I picked up a hook again after I found out I was pregnant with twins in 2009, and attempted to make a blanket or two, but knew I needed to learn a lot more about the art.

When our babies were 6 months old, I had the great pleasure of meeting a great photographer in our area, who was in need of some unique props. Being a fairly new mom, with not much to do in my free time (the little I had...) and feeling like I needed a hobby, I decided to make a trip to the craft store and see what I could make.

I ended up making her some tutu's, and then decided to try to crochet her a hat or two, just to see what she thought. At this point, I really knew nothing about how big baby accesories/items were! My newly found photographer friend was excited to learn that I could crochet and urged me to make more baby hats.

I scoured the internet for ideas and patterns, and although I did find some good references, I never really found any patterns I really loved or that I felt looked just right. So, I watched many, many, many Youtube videos on various stitches, and did some practice patterns, and started coming up with my own designs.

I have grown a TON in the art and am more and more excited to try new ideas whenever I can. I store all my patterns in my head, and only take notes on certain items so that I can complete future custom orders. I love doing new things, all the time, and LOVE making one-of-a-kind items.

For anyone interested in learning to crochet, I definitely recommend searching the internet for patterns and trying to teach yourself. There is so much information out there for FREE! There are also many awesome Etsy sellers, who have made some really nice patterns available for purchase. :)
