Sorting yarn to make Pom Poms is not my strong suit. I feel like the chaos helps promote creativity because I find new forgotten yarn each time.
The end result of our color re-working weekend! May the force be with you!

About

"Tree hugging beach hippy seeks natural fine dyed organic finds to save the planet one art piece at a time for children's future." -Daily Herald

I began crocheting 22 years ago as a way to connect with my grandmother when my siblings and I would each trade of the exciting honor of spending the night with her and shopping in the morning. She was a very simple and minimalistic woman who took great joy in creating things for her family with her own two hands. It wasn't until I was older that I truly understood the real value of this attitude and lifestyle.

I found myself crocheting hats later in life as a way to connect with fellow military members and spouses as my life took us to various homes. Slowly, through schools and play dates, parents would approach me asking if I could make something for them. I've always had great difficulty with selling my items. It's not that I don't value my work. I struggled to stand by that value and truly give away 90% of my art work because my language of love is giving.

As life progressed, I soon found myself in an empty apartment, no clothes but what I had, no furniture, and two children looking up at me with wide eyes in a west coast beach city. I couldn't let them down. I dove into carrying two jobs and faced medical needs single handedly. On the one day I had off of the year, the children would pack up, find free parking, pack a lunch and spend the entire day at the beach as a quick easy means of minimalist free entertainment followed by city concerts in the park where they would connect. I used this as my free time to decompress and align myself while shedding all the stress. That's when my grandmother's lifestyle became a part of my life as I watched my children thriving completely unaware that they could be missing out but were elated to be living the simple life. I continued crocheting to maintain the zen balance in my life. Again, parents in the parks and beaches would approach looking for insight to how to procure one of my artworks.

I learned through sickness the value of organics, plant based dyes, natural fibers and humanely raised and sheered animals. It became a passion and art work to take these things and use whatever plants I could find to create colorful works of art as well as continuing to be a way to calm the chaos that often became life.

My apartment became a condo. My front yard became a garden and photography backdrop. My children and our day travels became my billboard. My patio and backyard became my dye studio. My couch became my production mill. A single mom became a newly-wed. Two children gained a friend. The newly-wed man and single mom expanded their family. A child was born.

With this child became new dreams, new possibilities, and many more new and smaller hats, gloves, blankets, shoes, colors, combinations, textures and adventures. I re-branded and brought in aspects of our family Native America clan: the Bear Clan. Things that had been dear to us as we grew turned into a bear made of yarn sitting and waiting to be loved. And my artwork re-designed to become the same shop I had been dreaming off since 2012 but with a more personal and adventurous aspect. Mother bears will always protect and keep their cubs safe.

I've strived to keep my materials as natural as possible except in the few instances when custom requests were made that required acrylic to attain the color desired. I work closely with local alpaca farmers to purchase humanely aquired wool from animals I have physically hugged and loved on their ranches. I strive to use organic cotton more often than anything sold by fair trade and to maintain a low level of global impact on our environment. I refuse to use real fur poms and use faux fur and/or leather as one of the few non-natural made items in my shop.

My favorite creations are those that become collaborations of my own style mixed with the custom input and desire from the customer. Many days are spent sorting through different shades and textures in order to find the perfect yarn for what the customer is looking for. Seeing these visions they have come together as we work is one of the best aspects of the business that brings the personal and spiritual growth my soul desires in life as well as forming an example for my sons to take into their adults lives.

I am here for you. I am here to work with you. I am here to keep you warm and make the world beautiful, one happy alpaca and cotton bole at a time.

Welcome to my shop! It's rare to find a pattern made item in my shop, I usually make things up as I'm making them. That being said, every item is unique. I am partial to cotton, bamboo and wools. I hope you enjoy what you find and I am constantly adding. If you would like a custom request just contact me for more information. I love adding to old designs and changing colors up anytime.

Payment
I will accept paypal and direct checkout. The order will not be sent until payment has been made or recieved. Each item is hand made to order, that being said it takes time to make. I give myself a window of at least 2-3 weeks to complete all pieces and sew them together but rarely does it take that long.

Sometimes, supplies need to be ordered. In the event that this should cause an extended ship time, the purchaser will be notified and given a 2 day window to cancel the order due to wait time ONLY if shipping times are affected.

Made to order items are marked by Etsy through settings. All made to order sales are final, please double check that your sizing is correct. Average age sizing is not an exact measurement. When in doubt, order a size bigger or use a tape measure to check your child's head. Newborn hats are made to fit a newborn and will not be guaranteed to fit after the newborn is 6 weeks old and no longer considered a newborn, again, when in doubt order a size bigger.

Items may be cancelled within 24 hours of purchase. After 24 hours, I will beginning making the items and the sales are final.
Shipping
All ready to ship orders will ship within 5 days of purchase. The majority of orders are "made to order." Made to order items require at least 3 weeks to process before shipment. They likely ship within a week, however, 3 weeks is required. Should a shortage come about, the customer will be contacted, if an oversight should occur, please contact the seller.
Refunds and Exchanges
All made to order sales are final. If a re-sizing is needed, please contact the seller. Not all standard ages fit the standard sizes.
