Get to Know

I've been interested in crafts for as long as I can remember. I spent a lot of my early childhood fiddling with things like needlecraft, latch hook and friendship bracelets. My dad taught me how to crochet (thanks Dad!) and later I taught myself how to knit. I used to hand-sew dolls for myself (though I haven't tried that in a REALLY long time) and make toys and jewelry for friends and family. After a while it occurred to me that I could try selling my creations. I've tried consignment, dabbled in craft fairs, and eventually found my way to online vending, so here I am. :)

I'm always on the lookout for new ideas. The main thing I am working on right now are crochet projects (my favorite) and novelty items.
