About My Shop:

Everything in my shop is handmade by me. I sell accessories, fine art prints, crochet designs, jewelry, altered notebooks and a host of other items. My selections are very eclectic. You'll find truly one-of-a-kind gifts you won't find in the big box stores.

Behind the Scenes at the Shop:

My newest items are the ruffled scarf and hat sets. I designed them with the fashion diva in mind! Fun, funky, flirty and fabulous describes this set perfectly. The three piece ensemble includes a hat, detachable flower and ruffle scarf. For those who don't wear hats, the set comes with a wide headband/earwarmer instead.

My big seller this winter is by far the mohawk hats. I created my very first one for my granddaughter's birthday a few months ago. The response to that was amazing so I decided to list them in my shop.

With spring coming up I've begun adding little girls dresses and jewelry to my shop including crocheted hoops. These were a big seller last year.

I welcome custom orders. I can create a design in the colors of your choice.

I love to repurpose stuff. It's good for the earth and leaves less of a carbon footprint. I especially enjoy sewing with vintage linens. I like the idea of taking something old and creating something new and useful with it. Many of my little girls dresses had a former life as a pillowcase, sheet or tablecloth!

Tips and Tricks

  • Crochet tip for a professional finish. Lots of crocheters simply knot the yarn at the end of their project and then cut it as close as they can. What you wind up with is.....well.... a small and unsightly knot. To finish a project professionally firmly pull up the yarn through the last stitch you made and then use a quilting needled to weave in the ends for about three or four inches.
