About

A happy ending on a not-so-happy beginning...

So, my story is a love story, but just like all really good love stories it had its moments of tragedy. My best friend introduced me to my husband while I was waiting at a bar for the boy I thought I wanted to get off a flight and say he couldn't live without me. That boy never showed up, but my husband did. We spent every day of the first 2 weeks we knew each other together, and since then, we've only been apart 2 times longer than a few days, and not a day has passed that we haven't at least spoken on the phone.

We bought a house, 2 puppies, got married and had a baby. This brings us to our tragedy.

Noah was 5 months old when we found out my husband had cancer. I was a postpartum disaster and this certainly didn't help matters. I needed something to do while all of this was going on or I thought I would lose my mind.

My mom, after years of failed attempts to teach me crochet, took my weakened state to attack me again with an onslaught of crochet lessons, but this time, it worked! I was addicted! I had to be addicted to keep my mind motivated and busy and I haven't put down a hook since then.

My husband made a miraculous recovery, our little family moved from the city to the country with all the pets, another perfect son Wyatt was born, and now we're getting our happily ever after.

This is not the end of the story. This, is just the beginning!

So glad you found me! I crochet in every spare second between the time my kids are asleep to the time I pass out with the hook still in my hand. I dream about the cool stuff I want to make, wake up and start making things before my kids are awake then write patterns out on napkins on my lunch break from my "real job". I love to make custom orders but I've usually got something cute and new in the shop that's ready to go!

Shipping
All patterns are available as PDF instant downloads! YAY!

All physical items are shipped via USPS First Class Mail which can be expected in 3-5 days after shipping. All items ship with a tracking number and you will be notified of the shipment as soon as I've printed the label.

All items ship with a tracking number so we can both rest easy that your package is on its way and delivered safely. For this reason, I cannot be held responsible for any package once its accepted by the Post Office. Refunds can only be given on items that are returnable in resellable condition. I can purchase Insurance and/or Signature Delivery on your behalf for an additional. If insurance is not purchased and your package arrives damaged or missing, you will need to discuss this with your mail carrier. I will not be able to reimburse you for the loss. Thank you for your understanding!
Refunds and Exchanges
• Due to the nature of Patterns, these cannot be returned. If you feel a pattern has an error or mistake (hey, I am only human...) just let me know and I will try to clarify or correct it.

• If you need a return or exchange, you are responsible for return shipping costs. Refunds or exchanges can only be made if the original order is returned in resellable condition.

• I cannot be held responsible if you order a wrong size. If you're unsure about what size you need, please measure before ordering, or go up a size larger than you think you need so the item can be grown into.

• I do my best to get you the colors of your choice, but colors can vary from one computer to another, so I cannot guarantee the color will be exact, only "pretty darned close".

•I want you to be happy so you will leave me happy feedback! I will fix anything within reason!
Additional policies and FAQs
A note about pattern usage: Go ahead and enjoy my patterns! Make gifts, stuff for yourself, and even stuff to sell. All I ask is credit as the designer where applicable, and that you do not sell my patterns or post them as your own. File sharing is not permitted!
