Yarn on a mission.

It all started with an uncontrollable itch. Not one of those that you get on the random spot in your back. This one was much deeper, an internal one that I couldn't let go.

I wanted to do something bold with my creativity. I wanted to connect my dual passions: creating and helping people in need. I long had the idea, but never the courage to create this concept, a shop where a portion of the profits benefit other people besides me and my ever-growing love for polka dotted clothing.

It wasn't until I started to see other people doing something similar. I heard stories of people scraping their profits to do something beautiful, something sacrificial. And I said yes! This is it!

So, The Scrapperie was born. It's seen a lot of different phases - from craft supplies to earrings to bracelets to accessories. But I'm so excited about its future.

    I'm a twenty something creative that makes things to give Ethiopians clean drinking water. I'm a wife, mom to two puppies, and lover of Jesus - and I can be bribed with a Chipotle burrito (no beans, extra cheese).

Welcome to The Scrapperie! My hope is to provide you with quality, beautiful items! You might be wondering what "yarn on a mission" means.

Well, my mission is to use my love of yarn to help people thousands of miles away. For every bracelet purchased, an Ethiopian gets clean water for life. I've partnered with an organization called Compassion International to make this a reality.
