New York City born designer, artist and entrepreneur who creates handmade specialty gifts infused with love and care.
Learning to crochet was just a small part of my creative childhood. Arts and crafts were a normal part of life with my artistic single mom. Custom handmade crochet party favors, sewing, baking, holiday ornaments were just a few of the pleasures I was a part of. Art, creativity and expression was the norm, as well as music of different eras and genres. Playing the flute, reading, crochet, latch hook, cross stitch, coloring, simple sewing, friendship bracelets, and baking filled my childhood.
Recently I had an accident involving ice and now am unable to work traditionally. My tailbone, back and both hands took the bulk of the injuries. I cannot sit, stand or walk for long, I use a ortho cushion and cane. I have also not regained all of my hand capability. For weeks I could do nothing at all for myself, and required round the clock care. I yearned to crochet again, my first love of all crafts.
It will be two years soon, I am able to do some things but don't have strength or certain dexerity, despite two rounds of occupational therapy. Chronic pain is an everyday normal. I am able to crochet again not as quickly, and not small items. I'm blessed to have the privaledge to do what I love.
I have 2 natural grandchildren and 9 grandchildren from marriage and I feel blessed and motivated to make things for them.
An afforable gift shop is my goal now a days along with my charity work. I use the gift of crochet to give back to my community as well as teach others.
Please visit often as I enjoy creating whatever my heart desires and what my hands can handle!
Do what you love!
