I’ve been doing needlework for well over 20 years. Suffice it to say, I’ve always been hooked on it, but never really learned anything past the basic stitches. Lately, with the graphic design and photography taking a nosedive into the dirt (mostly my fault), I had turned to the needles and hooks for relaxation and a chance to meditate on what I really enjoyed.

I enjoy designing. I enjoy needlework. I enjoy working with colors and lines, and I love working with my hands. On a whim, I crocheted a basket for myself and became completely obsessed. I showed my sister my work and she said, “Oh wow, how long did that take you to do that? I want one!” I started making baskets for her and me to put all over our houses. Seeing how quickly I could pump out these puppies, I decided to see if I could get a small business going. I already knew the ins and outs of branding and photography, marketing, social media, accounting, all I needed to do was research trademarks, LLC, get these items underway.

Baskets are a dime a dozen, there are hundreds of patterns out for them now. In my research, there were bunches of spa sets out, with face scrubbies, washcloths, soap saver pouches, and it got me thinking about spa items, what exactly is used in a set, what each item is for. I dove deeper, and found a bunch of patterns that should be included into sets, but aren’t. I don’t know why, I’m guessing that the most popular items are those mentioned above. So I collated all of the patterns to create a good, clean, multipurpose spa set that anyone can enjoy.

My designs are original to me, I created them, I structured them, I tweaked them, and they will be labeled accordingly. However, each pattern included in any sets that are not mine will have due credit to the original designer.

Each of my patterns will be available for sale once they’ve been tested and crafter approved.  I will list them either on here, or Ravelry, depending on how I’m able to set up my shop.  I will have the finished project up for sale also, in case you don’t crochet or knit, but want the item or set.  Unfortunately, I won’t take pre-orders at the moment as I don’t want to overwhelm myself and promise something I can’t deliver.  So for now, it’ll be finished item listed for sale only.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you keep this site bookmarked.  I’ll have a bunch of great articles for you to read and get inspired with.

Keep in touch!
