About me...
I am a 40 year old female from East Haven, CT... located along the shoreline here in CT. I have been crocheting since I was 6 years old... That is well over 33 years. I enjoy crocheting as a hobby that keeps me busy when I am not working at my full time job as a computer tech. I enjoy challenges and am always looking for new ideas.
I started here on Etsy making "Crochet cakes" which was something I came up with in place of a diaper cake.
I had been making diaper cakes for years.
Cloth diapers are great but wouldn't a handmade blanket be nicer? I started working with the concept until I got it right.
That is how the Crochet cake idea came about.
Each and every Crochet cake consists of 1 handmade afghan with your choice of colors.
They are then formed to look like a cake and decorated for the perfect presentation.
They can be decorated with rattles, teethers, bibs and all kinds of newborn baby must haves or they can be left alone.
Crochet Cakes make great baby shower gifts, baby shower centerpieces or can be given to older children and grandparents as well. The possibilities are endless.
The hats began when I needed a unique hat to spark my nephews interest. The weather started to get colder and he had no interest in his hat. Here in the Northeast, a hat is a MUST. I started with a few character hats and it snowballed from there.
I really enjoy being creative.
I am happy to report... the idea worked and he is wearing his Pooh hat everywhere.

Payment
Paypal is gladly accepted. I have been an active paypal user for well over 7 years. I have been both buying and selling with paypal since 2001. I would expect payment within a reasonable period of time but realize "things happen."
Communication is key, so if there is a problem please let me know and I am willing to work with you. I can accept money orders if need be but that payment would need to clear before any product is shipped.
Shipping
I will generally ship your product UPS. I can also ship USPS or fedex.
I realize that different services work better for different areas of the country and am willing to work with the buyer to get the product there quickly and cost efficiently. Please ask me if you have any questions.

Additional policies and FAQs
I can make any size, color or theme crochet cake. If you let me know the theme... colors if you have any in mind ... I will create what I think may work and correspond by sending pictures as the cake is being created to be sure we are on the same page. I recently had a woman email me that she was looking for a sage colored / jungle theme cake for a baby shower centerpiece. She was shown a few ideas and I am happy to say... she received her product within 11 days of her initial email. You will see a few cakes that are created and not decorated. These are offered for a lesser cost and by simply purchasing items at your local baby / retail store ... you can personalize your cake by adding exactly what you would like to fit your specific situation. I am ready and willing to answer any and all questions that one may have for me.
If there is anything that I have not mentioned that concerns you ... please ask!
