The hat that started it all.

When my son was a year old I made him an adorable spiked dinosaur hat. One compliment after another- friends, family and strangers would ask me to make one for them.

Since not everyone wears a dinosaur hat, I started making mary jane hats for ladies and that was the Christmas that I made over 60 hats!

Creating an online store made life a lot easier and fun at the same time. I could post images, prices, color options and easy quick shipping.

As a Human Resource Analyst by day, it has been a blast being able to use my creativity as a way to support my little family and meditate through the art of crochet.

I continue to grow as my customers submit requests. I now design patterns and my best sellers are my crochet beards, newborn fedoras and bow ties.

Thank you to all of my customers that purchase from my little store vs going to a chain. You have helped our family greatly and it has been such a fun and wonderful journey.

    I'm a working mom that loves to crochet. It started as a way to make handmade gifts and then flourished into my own little business. It has been a great way to help provide for my little family! Thank you so much for the growing support and purchases
