Custom designs for you, your house and your business

My name is Aissatou, Aissa for short. I am originally from West Africa, Niger to be precise. Grew up in Switzerland and France. I speak 4 languages fluently (French, English, Fulani and Sonraï). My mom thougbt me to crochet, knit, embroider and sew when I was 6 years old. So over 30 years ago now. A little over 15 yeaars ago I also learned how to make jewelry. Learned that watching TV.

ACLD Creations - Wonderful Wonders was born 12 years ago. I was working a night job in customer service and had too much time on my hands. So hate staying idle. So started taking my hooks with me. Someone saw me and asked what I was making and they would like to get something for their grandkids.

The idea took root and I started making blankets and little things for babies. A friend then mentioned I should just make it a business and really start selling my work and here we are. When the business started picking up I relaized I needed a business packet with cards, brochures, and all that but everything was so expensive. With a background in Information Technology, specializing in programming and databases, I decided to make my own. So built ny website, business cards, thank you notes, brochures, flyers, etc. Then decided to incorporate that in the services I offer.

About 8 years ago, I decided to expend my business and offer event planning and interior decorating. I had been doing it for friends so why not get paid to do it. So I imcorporated that in my business as well as another service.

6 years ago a woman on the subway asked me if I gave lessons. I didn't at that time but I told her yes regardless. The following weekend she came over with 2 of her friends and I thought them how to crochet.
I love creating unique, customizable pieces or putting my own twist on some old favorites. Being from Niger in West Africa, having grown up in Europe and having travelled all over, I have a very eclectic taste and love to try new ideas. My inspiration comes from everywhere and anything. It could be a picture, a dish, an animal, a project done by someone else. Anything is possible when crafting and impossible is just not in my vocabulary. My favorite work is when I am making a custom piece for someone. They become unique in their own way. Because even if I make a second design of it they will never be truly similar.
