Oh where to begin....crocheting, beading, spinning, needle felting, traveling, gardening, photography.
Skills and Techniques
I'm used to not be real good at reading crochet instructions but, after talking to some more experienced folks it is all good now. I'm also quite good at designing things that don't come with a pattern. For needle felting I sketch out on paper all of my pictures first and then sketch them on a larger scale on whatever it is I'm going to actually needle felt on.
Get to Know
This adventure of selling online sort of just happened. I joined Ravelry on the advice of another artisan and then kept after me until I opened my own shop. I love to crochet and I first learned to some 30+ years ago from an elderly neighbor lady who had no grandchildren and wanted to pass down the art of crochet. I never really kept up the skill but, when my nephew and his wife became pregnant I decided it was time to renew my skills so that I could make them some handmade gifts for the wee one.
I have a variety of hobbies and things I enjoy doing and sharing things is awesome. I probably under price most of my items and it is not because I don't think they are quality items. I enjoy the art and want to be able to place those items in the hands of others for them to enjoy. If I could afford to do so I'd give every item away but, I do need to make a little to fund this passion.
This is a picture of a needle felt design I created for my sister. She loves dragon flies so I put this on the back of one of her jean shirts.

Oh, I'm proud of this. This belt is made of yarn that I spun on my own spinning wheel and then I crocheted it and attached the glass/stone rings on either end.
A customer wanted a hooded neck warmer so, after she described it well enough for me to visualize it I created this for her.
