This is me.
I am passionate about yarn and have been since the age of five when my mom taught me to knit and I used to visit huge yarn barns with her. I love that there is a community of knitters and crocheters who get just as excited about yarn as I do!
I am truly lucky to do what I love and to love what I do. Every. Single. Day.
Here’s to you crazy yarn lover! Rock on!

✨🤍 you know that #dehydratedfruit cake you’re all loving? well this babe walked out the door an hour earlier. I hope you love her. but firs, can I share something wild with you?
I was actually having a 𝘳𝘦𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘴𝘩𝘪𝘵𝘵𝘺 𝘥𝘢𝘺.
I was dealing with a horrible customer; an inconsiderate customer and then one who tried to get sneaky on me too.
I had a three hour window to get these two cakes done, a delivery to the city and home for a pickup.
this was the same day I had just closed my orders for the last cakes in my home town (𝘣𝘦𝘧𝘰𝘳𝘦 𝘐 𝘮𝘰𝘷𝘦 𝘮𝘺 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝘣𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴𝘦𝘴 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘴𝘵𝘢𝘵𝘦 𝘮𝘪𝘥 𝘭𝘰𝘤𝘬𝘥𝘰𝘸𝘯, 𝘪𝘯𝘵𝘰 𝘤𝘰𝘮𝘱𝘭𝘦𝘵𝘦𝘭𝘺 𝘶𝘯𝘤𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘦𝘥 𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘺).
that’s almost every emotion I’m capable of feeling… 𝘪𝘯 𝘭𝘪𝘵𝘦𝘳𝘢𝘭𝘭𝘺 𝘩𝘢𝘭𝘧 𝘢 𝘥𝘢𝘺. 🥲
WHAT I COULD’VE DONE 🔻
• freaked out
• rushed my natural design process (I don’t map out my designs)
• broken down into a “I cant do this anymore” mess
• doubted myself, what I’ve achieved, worked so hard for & how far I’ve come.
WHAT I DID ✅
• stopped for 5 mins to breathe + make a coffee ☕️
• used kindness and years of experience in retail management to diffuse the situations with the customers 👩🏼💻
• channeled every single emotion swirling in my mind 🧠 into my most beneficial outlet...
simple. pure. stripped back creativity. 💡✨
as creative, BOSS ASS women (hello 95% of you) some of who are running business solo + wearing all of the hats 🎩👒🧢🎓…. we need to remember not to lose our true creative selves to the highs and lows of the business/social media, overwhelm or self doubt.
~ beautiful customers + shitty ones
~ busy weekends + slow ones
~ 0 orders + 1000 orders
~ a high performing post + one that flops
~ go go go days + rest days
𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘣𝘶𝘴𝘪𝘯𝘦𝘴𝘴. 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘭𝘪𝘧𝘦!
you can’t grow without discomfort.
you can however, handle it in a way that sees you succeed 𝘰𝘷𝘦𝘳𝘸𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘮𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘭𝘺.
share this with the creative boss ass women in your life who needs to hear it. or maybe that’s you?⛅️✨
