Since I was a little girl I always loved creating things, and I was usually involved with some craft project or another. When I was about eleven years old, my girlfriend taught me the basics of crocheting, and I did a couple projects. Fast forward to when I was a stay-at-home mom, picking up my hooks again to learn thread crochet. Now that my little darlings are grown up, I've started crocheting again and have decided to try my hand at designing.

My store is called The Crocheted Butterfly and is located at The real problem is my Crochet ADD - Oh, look! Another pretty yarn! and What a lovely stitch! - and thus my slogan "Specializing in crocheted flights of fancy". I began this journey in 2013 and it's been quite a ride, but I keep going back to my original love - lace, which began with thread crochet ornaments. I keep adding new patterns, so please visit my shop or follow my blog ( to keep updated.
