Welcome to my passion – handmade crochet. I truly love any fibre-related crafting; primarily my first choice is to pick up the crochet hook but I also love to knit as well. I take a great deal of pride in designing & creating crochet items, as I get to use my creativity.
I started my crafting business after realizing that I needed to start doing something with all the yarn I had gathered. Then once I became a Grandmother, I realized that my granddaughter (whose name means little butterfly) was when the perfect name came to mind; so I created Crochet4MyButterfly. I am truly blessed to have a happy, active 4 year old in my home as everyday, she makes me smile and I truly enjoy all that she brings to our lives. So this is how Crochet4MyButterfly became a reality. I started slowly; with a few craft fairs and an online store on ETSY. Now I also have my own store on the Crochet4mybutterfly site which you can find HERE. I am always up for a challenge and I love to do custom handmade crochet orders – if you have seen something you like, please send me an email and we can discuss it further. If you prefer, my patterns are also available on Ravelry.
I have been crafting for many years. I was very fortunate to have family members teach me the basics, and from there – I have worked on improving my skills with many venue’s for learning the crafts of Crochet and Knitting.
Back in the fall of 2010, I took some of my creations out to a local craft fair. I had a bit of a stock pile of items that I had created. I was thrilled with a few custom order requests and some sales. I had thought of opening my own ETSY store to have an online presence for my crafting and so far, I have been excited about how well my creations were doing. A lot of friends and family would ask me to make them items so this became a natural extension of what I was already doing. I have just started to create my own designs and have partnered up with ELANN.com, please check out the current patterns I have for sale on the patterns page.
I am so very fortunate to be a young grandmother, not so young mother and wife. I also work full-time in a very rewarding career with a great company. This is an extension of my creative side that is my fun hobby. May your day bring you peace and joy with the positive things in the world.
