Skills and Techniques

I have been crafting ever since I was a child. I have been knitting and crocheting for about 15 years and I have been needle felting for about 2 years.

Get to Know

Hello All! I am a mother of two beautiful girls. I have been crafting for many years now and I consider myself a \"jack of all trades\" kind of artist. I tend to be the sort that will be handed a pattern of a new technique or medium and I have to try to make it myself if reasonable. Our shop is something that I have dreamed about for a long time and hope to grow even bigger some day. The main focus of our shop is several things: First is family. I love to involve my girls in any way that their little attention spans allow them too. And I value their opinions the most because they are honest but they always say \"that\'s beautiful mommy, can I have it\" no matter what I make oops or not. Second is Made By Hand. I have always loved making things. A lot of things were lost with the invention of mass production and with the current economy I strongly believe it has opened the the flood gates to take things back to the basics. We are believers of the quality the handmade item has because we take the time on each item to try and make it the best it can be. And lastly, friendship. Without this we wouldn\'t be. Offline, I have sold various crafts over the years and each time I ask the same question \"What do you think?\" This can be answered many ways but which ones I love to get are \"Ya know, if you do this to this and glue that to that you could have a great so and so\" These are awesome to get because this means that my customer has such a genuine interest in what I do that they want a hand in making it more perfect. And when they come back the next time they may see that their voices and opinions were listened too. Basically, we feel that the items need to be of the best quality and from the heart. So come to our shop, look around, tell your friends but most of all support each other in everything that is home made and we\'ll all be successful.
