Welcome to my little shop! Here, have a look!
I’m Ioanna and I like to do lots of things, especially those that spread joy – either to others or to myself. In my opinion, joy can be found anywhere, we just have to give it the opportunity to express itself!
When I first saw my name written in Latin characters – where the “o” becomes a “w” –resulting in ‘’Iwanna’’ instead of ‘’Ioanna’’, I automatically thought of this as no coincidence: Iwanna for all that I wanna do and I wanna be! And that’s how my website got its name “Iwanna” , which was later joined by the addition “be χαρά” [be hara – be joy] – a paraphrase of “me hara” [with joy] from a children’s song which my daughter falsely sang when she was little and which my husband at some point started to use as a nickname for me.
Thus, “Iwanna be hara”, for all those things I wanna do that make me happy - like crocheting. And like everything you ‘ll find in my little shop! Because creating them makes me joyful and I hope it’ll also make you!
After working almost twenty years as an architect, I saw myself forced, like so many others in my country, to leave my job due to the economic crisis. A “separation” that hurt and still hurts me because I really do love architecture. The first years were really difficult and affected me psychologically very much. On the quest of finding something to at least occupy myself, I started handcrafting and sewing. I then remembered myself crocheting when I was a little one in school and so rediscovered the joy that is creating things from scratch! Since then – and many years have passed – you can see me crocheting whenever and wherever possible: in the bus, in front of the tv, with company… And it always gives me joy & pleasure!
So, whatever it is that you buy from my shop, it sure is made with love & care for detail but above all with joy! It’s a happy item!
Thank you!
