On Etsy since 2014

My whole life I've been pretty academic in nature (that's a nice way of saying "nerdy"). I LOVE to learn. I've always been crafty, but never thought of myself as creative, and certainly not an artist! Tell me how and I can make anything...don't leave me to my own devices or you'll find me looking for books and websites to tell me what to do next. My lovely mom is an artist to her core! As a result, I grew up surrounded by a wide range of creative projects and the odds and ends that go along with them. My childhood memories are ornamented with weaving looms, warping boards, skein winders, dye pots, and braids of yarn hanging from our trees (and all the terminology associated with them). I always thought it was neat, but never thought I could do it. My mom always tried to prove me wrong. Thirty-one years later, while learning to knit (at my mom's house, no less), I came across the term "art yarn". My mind was blown! I wanted to be able to make it so bad! (That's my mother's daughter: "I must MAKE it. Not USE it!") Because of who my mother is and the creative seeds she planted, the step from using yarn to making yarn was a small one. All I had to do was ask her how. Before I knew it I had a homemade, cd drop spindle, a library of books and youtube videos, and a bag of fluff (all just laying around her house because "ya just never know when you might need it"). I was in love, and a little over a year later am happy to call myself an artist!

This shop is an outpouring of my love for spinning, fleece, texture, color, and sparkle! I absolutely LOVE everything about this craft and I hope you can tell. When I receive a new fleece, I don't see the dirt, grease, or smell a barnyard; I see what it is going to become. Every step of the process is a joy for me! The goal and desire of my heart is to see beauty where there is none, turn that beauty into joy, and share that joy with others. I truly hope my creations bring you joy!

Custom and personalized orders

Unfortunately, because of the nature of my art, I am no longer accepting custom orders for YARN. If you are interested in customized (with some artistic license allowed) fibers for hand spinning (dyed locks, art roving, or art batts) please contact me.
