Quick Blurb

I am a retired National Guard Wife who has a passion for handcrafting Eco-friendly items out of materials from the USA!

Interests

Crocheting, knitting, sewing, photography, hemp jewelry, gardening, spiritualism, the environment, politics, animals, charity, self sufficiency, lace making, DIY, travel, culture, anthropology, IndyCar, psychology, sociology, communication, healthy living, oceanography, reading, Star Wars, Marvel and DC movies and TV shows, BTVS, Lost, TBBT, Harry Potter, procedurals like CSI, NCIS, Criminal Minds, and Bones, chocolate, wine, good scotch, and microbrew beer!

Skills and Techniques

My favorite techniques are the crocodile stitch, embossed crochet, Tunisian crochet, and lace making. Although I make just about anything and everything, my heart lies with boho and beach wear including wedding pieces.

I do custom work - any piece you see listed can be done in the size and color you want, trims and stitch patterns may be altered on many pieces; You must pay 50% of the full purchase price up front for any custom order over $50. I have access to organic and natural fibers such as cotton, hemp, bamboo, wool, silk and linen. All items are made in a pet friendly, smoke free environment!

I am no longer taking special orders for knit items, but will still be selling knit items of my own choosing. Although I enjoy the process it is not cost effective for my business as I'm not lightening fast at it like I am crochet.

Get to Know

I have big dreams for Krafty Kitty Productions! I want to live in Hawaii and open a co-op boutique selling beach & beach wedding wear as well as boho attire, island home decor and accessories that I have designed and either made myself or have been made by other local artisans out of environmentally friendly raw goods grown and manufactured in the USA. Right now I live in Mooresville, Indiana and am making anything and everything I find a pattern for or someone requests.

I've been knitting, crocheting and sewing for over 30 years, but my main love is crochet. I decided to give being a professional at it a go in May 2009. I have continued to grow both as an artist and a business manager since then.

As I make and sell off pieces I'm making every effort to replace my current yarn stash with organic, naturally dyed fibers from local spinners in the USA. I believe that the higher price is worth the environmental and economic impact it pays for!

Get Leid For Cancer! was begun in April 2013 and Let's Kill Cancer in March 2014 in order to help the Mooresville Relay For Life Team Becky Vasquez raise money for the American Cancer Society. I have lost many loved ones to cancer including my mother and this was my first opportunity to be a part of a teams working toward making a difference. http://www.relayforlife.org/ http://www.cancer.org/ https://www.facebook.com/AmericanCancerSociety?rf=109543132405651 https://www.facebook.com/RelayForLifeofMooresville.

I began creating puzzle piece items in 2014 to raise money for Morgan County Project Lifesaver. The primary mission of Project Lifesaver is to provide timely response to save lives and reduce potential injury for adults and children who wander due to Alzheimer's, autism, and other related conditions or disorders. http://www.projectlifesaver.org/ https://www.facebook.com/MCSARTF

The name for my business was inspired by all of my furry familiars over the years. They have all been pretty crafty in their own right and always inspire me to stay young, enjoy nature, and play at what I love every day.
