It’s hard for me to show my “workspace” because basically it’s my whole house, lol! Here’s a small part of getting ready to take pics for the listing. Sewing on my tags and my photography background.

My Hobby Has Become My Joy!

Over 30 years ago I learned a skill that has become my passion! I learned to crochet in Junior High School in Southern Maryland where I grew up not far from Washington D.C. In 1987 my small family of 3 (now 6 including my son in law and Granddaughter) moved to Boise, Idaho to raise our family. Now we reside on 5 acres outside of Mountain Home, Idaho, not far from Boise. I continued to crochet off and on but wasn't consistent until I was laid off of my job as a Medical Biller in 2011. Due to chronic pain conditions, Fibromyalgia and Chronic Migraines, I am unable to work outside of my home. I began with scarves and afghan's, the majority of them were a football theme, either Boise State University or Washington Redskins (Most of my Family are huge Redskin fans!). After receiving several requests from friends and family to make crocheted items for them my Husband, Bob, encouraged me to open the shop. In November of 2016 Created By Chell was born! Since then I have ventured into all areas of crochet and have started making all kinds of crocheted items. I’ve also added Crocheted Jewelry and am in the process of learning macrame and beaded jewelry to add to the shop. I really love to make Creations that I know someone will enjoy wearing or having. Nothing makes me happier than knowing something I made is gifted to a loved one or enjoyed by my customers.

Care instructions

Most of my Creations are made with acrylic yarn. Acrylic yarn is easy to take care of and machine washable and dry-able. My preference is to wash on delicate and dry on low or medium. Hand washing is the best option to sustain the look and to prevent pilling or snagging.
