About

From Hobby to Shop

When my son was born, I had a huge desire to make things for him. I'm not the most crafty person so I knew it had to be something simple. I also tend to start projects and then leave them half finished. My thought was that I could teach myself how to crochet and I would start to make hats for him to wear during the cooler months.

I started to try and learn how to crochet by buying a book and some yarn. I soon found out that I don't learn by reading a book. I excel by watching someone and then repeating. Then I went to search Youtube for some instructional videos. The next thing I knew I was actually able to crochet and do it fairly well.

My first project was an adorable snowman hat. I finished the hat fairly quickly, taking full advantage of my son's nap times. Once I put the hat on it was a huge hit. I showed it to a mom group that I'm apart of on Facebook, and the next thing I knew I had people wanting to buy my creation. And that was the beginning of my business.

I quickly opened my Etsy store in October 2011 and made enough money between November and early December to pay for Christmas that year. After the Christmas holiday, I decided to try other items such as baby booties and some more girly hats.

Crochet has truly changed my life. What was once a hobby, quickly became a lifestyle and passion. I love what I do and love making people's day when they receive one of my products. I hope to continue with this endeavor for years to come.

    I am a stay at home mom to my wonderful son, Liam. He was my inspiration for making super cute hats for children. Aside from crochet, I enjoy reading, photography, hockey and baseball.
