About

Fantastical, whimsical, and all around imaginative creations abound!

I was at the Amazing Las Vegas Comic-Con in 2014, and a kind lady commented on my 1-year-old daughter's handmade Pikachu (from Pokemon) costume that had several crocheted elements to it, due to the fact I ran out of fabric.

She said, "Ah, crochet! The original 3D printer!"

I realized that it really is! In fact, I started crocheting just because the things I wanted (mostly cute baby items) were simply non existent. Now I love taking on the challenge of a new pattern or creating one from scratch.

The shop's name, Craftzilla, is because my first completely original crochet project with no patterns or guidance, was a Godzilla inspired amigurumi (crochet doll) requested by my Japanese monster-fanatic husband. He specifically asked that it could "open it's mouth and eat things". It was the first time I really got into the mechanics (and math...did you know there is math involved?? Ugh!) of crochet work. After a couple of mutant attempts, the monster arose from the ashes (only to get a "Oh cool, you actually made it." from husband...). But hey, it was super cute, and it was magical to see something that had only existed in my brain become real!

So now I'm sharing my monstrous obsession with crafting with you! I love to make things new and have imaginative elements to them. (I'm like the guy from Cake Boss who over promises "Robot themed cake?? Well, how about a moving robot themed cake?!" I get excited about this.)
