I'm so glad you've taken a look! I hope you enjoy browsing as much as I enjoy designing and creating the items you'll find here. I try to keep my pricing fair to the customer. Slightly higher price points on some pieces may reflect a variety of things: higher quality yarn, more labor-intensive stitchwork, semi-precious stones, and more time working on the piece. I hope you'll find these little luxuries well worth the price.

I always have several new designs on the needles, just no time to get them finished until I get caught up on my orders! I love designing custom pieces and remember that all of my pieces in my shop are mix-n-match on the yarn combinations. If you see a piece that catches your eye, but like the yarn combo of another piece, just let me know. I also have other colorways available - just no time to get them listed! I stock literally hundreds of different types and colors of yarn and would be happy to send you pics of combos for your special piece.

For photographers, I am fortunate that all of the images on my site have been provided by clients after they have made their purchase. I do not trade images for pieces.

A quick note about cheapo yarn. I really hate it. I never use it. You will not find any scratchy, cheapo big-box craft store, made-in-China products anywhere in my listings. I select only high-quality, natural fiber designer yarns. My items are handknit when you place your order. For photographers, you can be assured you are investing in heirloom quality pieces that you will be proud to present to your clients. The quality and craftsmanship of your handknit props, as with your equipment, is a reflection of your standards. With so many very new and very blatant copy-cat sellers on Etsy, it is easy to find a knock-off of original designs. But as with all too-good-to-be-true "bargains", you get what you pay for. ;)

I'm a SAHM of 7 children ranging from 15 down to 3 - knitting like crazy while trying to run a household of 9.

These items are hand-knit, sewn, and/or embroidered by me with care. I try my best to accurately describe and photograph each piece so you will know exactly what I am offering. I create my items with the goal that they will make their owners smile every time they are used.
