Blog Interview questions
Where are you from?
The Central Coast of California (Grover Beach)
What do you specialize in?
Photography Props for all ages
How long have you crocheted?
on and off since I was 8
Where do you draw your inspirations?
Myself, my daughters, nieces , nephews, sister in law and even my dad.
Do you have a item you've made that is super special and why?
My sleepy owl hats (especially the hot pink and green) It was the first animal hat in my shop and the first one I received pro photos of. My sister in law Nicole is a professional photographer and when I showed her the pink and green owl hat I had crocheted, she totally loved it and that is really when I decided to change directions with my shop. Since I listed the owls I have sold so many. They are so cute and very popular! I have dreams that I am crocheting them and nightmares where I forget to make and ship them. lol
What other crafts do you like to do?
I love making rag quilts. Originally that is what my shop was about. I couldn't come up with a name and my sister in law Nicole came up with Love Me Ragged and it just stuck. It was perfect! I will continue making them again in the future.
Do you donate or give back any portion of your sales to charity or an organization?
I recently found out about "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" and for those of you who don't know about this organization please visit their website and read about them they really are amazing! I will be making donations to them. I have made a few other donations recently. It feels really good to give back!
Why do you love to crochet?
I love taking a ball of yarn and creating something by hand for a child that can be cherished for a lifetime. Handmade items are always special! Especially if it's for a photo shoot because when I receive the feedback that the mommies just adore my props, I know I am doing a good job and that's the best feeling. I also love seeing the babies in my hats! That is rewarding in itself.
Who taught you to crochet?
Both of my right handed grandmothers. I am a lefty and with a lot of patience (mostly on their part) and practice, I was able to learn the art of crochet the backwards way!
On a More personal note:

Buy my brother a house, my dad a truck & toy hauler and the rest to St. Jude

If you are a salad what kind of dressing do you have?
