On Etsy since 2011

Welcome to The Lillie Pad! Ever delightful and always handmade.

Hi, y'all! I'm Amanda, the owner and designer here at The Lillie Pad. The Lillie Pad is a great place to find delightful and whimsical handmade gift ideas for the ones you love. From crocheted accessories and original crochet patterns, to fun personalized housewares, you are sure to find something to make you or someone you love smile. My products are proudly handmade in my beloved home state of Georgia.

I opened my Etsy shop in 2011 after losing my teaching job during the recession. In 2013 my crochet hobby turned into a full-time handmade business overnight when one of my crochet designs went viral worldwide. I became an Etsy top seller and to date and I have sold over 15,000 crochet patterns and over 9,000 handmade items in my Etsy and Ravelry shops. My work has been featured in The Daily Mail and on the BBC, Good Morning America and The Today Show as well as Cosmopolitan magazine, The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed and much more!

As a fourth generation crocheter in my family the art of crochet is in my blood. Several years ago I began honing my skills with the craft and really connected with it. After a few weeks of work I showed my granny some of my first projects. She cheered my efforts. Then she left the room and soon returned with a mason jar filled with vintage crochet hooks. But these were not just any crochet hooks. These were hooks which had once belonged to by my great-grandmother and my grandfather. My great-grandmother and her son, my grandfather, were well known for their amazing and intricate crochet creations. My granny handed me the jar of hooks and told me, "Keep making pretty things with them". A treasured memory and a treasured gift. Those crochet hooks are among my dearest possessions, connecting me to my heritage and reminding me to carry on crafts and traditions of my ancestors.

In recent years my hands and arms have been encumbered by the difficulties of arthritis, making it progressively more difficult to crochet beautiful things. I have added personalized home goods and gifts such as glass soap dispensers, sassy kitchen towels, and fun holiday decor to my shop. Creating custom and unique gifts for special people has given me continued enjoyment of creating with my hands in a way that is more manageable for my arthritis.

Besides being just a handmade seller, I enjoy working with fellow artisan entrepreneurs to help them grow their handmade businesses. I am the co-owner of The Market Gals coaching services shop here on Etsy with fellow Etsian Brianna Torrey. At The Market Gals we offer craft show and digital sales mentoring services and critiques to handmade sellers. Check us out at themarketgals.etsy.com. I am also a co-founder of Handmades Sale, an established artisan-only craft show based in the Atlanta, Georgia area.

Thank you for stopping by and supporting my work here at The Lillie Pad!
