Loved my cozy! It's my first one and I really have enjoyed drinking my coffee from it and I'm in Texas! It comes in handy bc I have little ones and disperses heat evenly. Fits every one of my mugs which is cool :). These will make great gifts for teacher appreciation which is coming up and Mother's Day! Came super quick too, no smell at all, very crisp and clean. Adorable packaging! I just tweeted and pinned I liked so much thank u for an awesome gift I bought for myself! :-)) we all need a little cheer me up in this crazy world :-)) love!!!

I ordered custom designed Washington State pillow, and Melissa did an amazing job ! She worked with me on colors and design details and I could not be more happier how my pillow turned out. This is such a unique and beautiful piece - and a great gift idea too ! Thank you so much, I will be back for sure .

About

Your place for unique handmade items

Sitting in the kitchen of my aunt's home with scraps of yarn and the biggest crochet hook she had a passion was born. At 12 my aunt would crochet barbie clothes with the smallest thread i'd ever seen. She would make hats and blankets, anything really.

She slowly began to show me how to work the hook and I would start her projects. When I had mastered chaining stitches she showed me the next part, and the dream began. I can't tell you how many scarfs, and afghans I made throughout my early years but there were lots.

Fast forward to today and I have expanded my knowledge and skill level tremendously. I love to make baby items and household items. I prefer to crochet with cotton yarn as there is no other feeling than cotton. It washes well and will always keep you warm.

I love to learn new techniques and have started to slowly create my own designs. I am taking all that knowledge my aunt gave me at 12 and using it to hopefully inspire others. I have taken up where she left off and have began teaching my son how to make chain stitches. Hopefully the art of crochet will live on with him.

    I am someone who has always loved crafts. My aunts showed me how to crochet when I was 12. Needless to say I was hooked. I have been crocheting, cross stitching and sewing ever since. I love making unique items for home, baby, and adults alike.
