Color Inspiration

I bought these tiny beads recently and once I placed them in these clear bead containers I was so inspired by the color combinations I was seeing! So, I am using this happenstance to inspire new bracelet color combinations!! Keep an eye on my SHOP for these bright bracelets coming soon!

The Versatile, Sky Blue Bead

In my opinion, the sky blue bead is one of the most versatile beads that I have! Sure, the transparent silver, or transparent gold go with every color of thread, but the sky blue bead does too, and it adds a punch of color! Perfect for springtime coming up! Check out the single strand custom bracelet listing to see more bead options!


New Year, New Styles

I decided on my road trip that I would come up with some new styles for 2011, so here they are! Hooded Cowl, Winter Headband, Beret, and a new and improved Infiniti Scarf! You can order any of these styles in any color of yarn I have displayed on each respective listing. Totally custom! So Exciting! Check them out in the shop.

Whoa, I have so much news! I just got back from a wonderfully long road trip with my boyfriend. We drove up north stopping in Mammoth, Lake Tahoe, Bend and Eugene Oregon, Arcata and Santa Rosa! I had a lot of time on the road to crochet and come up with some new things for my shop. I am also re-organizing my shop listings to make it easier for everyone to order custom items. I hope everyone had a great new year celebration. 2011 is going to be a great one!

It’s Over!

Well, Christmas is over. It was quite a rush!! Thankfully my nieces and nephew loved the crocheted animals I made them!! Unfortunately I will NOT be making custom animals in my shop. They take way too long!! I will be sticking to beanies, scarves, headbands and bracelets for the time being. But before getting back into the swing of things I will be putting my shop on “vacation” for some much needed time off. Happy New Year everyone!


Making Christmas


Whoa!!! This has been one crazy holiday season, and the holidays haven’t even started yet! I had no idea what I was getting into selling on Etsy for the holidays. Non-stop crocheting, posting, wrapping, shipping. It was definitely a learning experience that I will never forget. I will be taking a “vacation” from Etsy in early January and have plans to do some re-organizing of my shop to make things easier for everyone. I want to thank everyone who purchased items from me for the holidays!! I hope everyone loves their handmade gifts. As you can see from the picture, I am also handmaking some of my own gifts. I bought this pattern off Etsy and decided to start making them about a month ago and I am just now getting them put together. These were way more work than I thought they’d be but they are going to be really cute when they are finished. I can’t wait to give them to the little ones!
