About CrochetASmile

Sales 404
On Etsy since 2010

The day I was blessed with my second child, Crochet A Smile began!

I have always loved crochet. As I grew up, my grandmother would crochet and tell me stories about how she first fell in love with crocheting. When I went to college, I decided to teach myself to crochet. I picked up a book, a hook, and some yarn - and that was it - I loved it! I began by making large afghans, intricate doily's, and ornaments.

Then life began to get busier. I began working and so my projects got smaller. I started making scarves + hats. Then I was blessed with my first child - a boy. He was perfect in every way and I treasured the handmade hats I received for him.

Two years later, I had my daughter. She was beautiful and cuddly...and a little busy! She would tear apart her toys + I would worry that she would choke on the buttons and beads. So I decided to make her own toys! Shortly after, my niece was born and I made her toys too.

Friends saw my creations and urged me to open an Etsy store. One September day, I did. I have loved every moment of it. I love getting to know my customers and being able to send my handmade, love filled items to people all over the world. I love being able to see pictures of my customers (and their children) cuddling up with one of my stuffed animals or staying warm in one of my hats. I feel so blessed that people choose to purchase a cocoon or other prop for their newborn pictures - these precious memories that I get to be a part of.

I believe that fiber art + handmade creations are special; they are love filled + personal gifts. I feel honored to be able to make crochet items for people around the world. I treasure the friendships I have made + am blessed to be a part of so many stories.
