Hello, My name is Nicole and I am a fiber artist. I have had a passion for all things fiber art for the majority of my life.
I learned to knit as a child, and taught myself how to crochet with the help of youtube in my early 20's. I have dabbled in all other forms of fiber art throughout my life.
After learning how to crochet, my life changed. I felt more inspired than I ever had. I knew this was my calling.
I made a simple granny square to start, then jumped right into the world of amigurumi.

The first amigurumi I made was a cute little turtle that I was so incredibly proud of, I snapped a photo and sent it to my Dad, he was amazed. The photo of the little turtle made him smile, which let me see that the things I could make would make people happy, This fuelled my passion.
I began making baby related items, which is where I got my start selling my finished objects.
As I began to sell more and more blankets, I starting recieving requests for custom items. Making custom items sparked my creative side, which led me into designing my own patterns.
Today I continue designing patterns, and custom pieces, and am just as passionate about my craft as I was the day I started.
