Hello! My name is Amber.
While traveling the US with my husband, a US Marine, I got a new job at a craft store in upstate New York and found, much to my surprise, that the yarn kept calling to me (!). My mother had taught me to crochet while I was elementary school, but by that point I hadn’t picked up a hook for a very long time, probably because it could not keep kid me interested and adult me didn’t think of it. So when the yarn began looking just so soft and squishy that every time I passed it I had to squeeze various skeins, I knew I had to pick up crocheting again. This was back in 2010 and, wow, so much has changed. I crochet daily, think of patterns and crafts and just love this awesome crafting community on the internet. This is my blog, my journey, and my passion. I hope you enjoy experiencing it along with me.

    I have just found you and love your work. You have some really interesting designs and I love the use of ribbon. I popped over and liked your facebook page too. Good luck with the shop – I am procastinating about mine! I find that I spend far too much time on the computer in an attempt to get myself out there!(or so I convince myself!) I look forward to seeing the other things you come up with. 🙂
    P.s. I find that I get a lot of great feedback from my blog – you should consider joining up with a link party such as Handmade Monday. It is time consuming but worth it for the feedback.
    Good luck.

        On my page there is a link to Handmade Monday – the one I use. All you have to do is write a blog post about something you ahve made and then use the tool to link in. You have to do it between a certain time (large time gap). If you google handmade monday you should also come accross it on Handmade harbour.

    Thank you so much. I’ll search and give it a try. I love seeing what other people produce, gets inspirational vibes flowing, and I would appreciate feedback on my jewelry and a chance to get my name out there. 🙂 Again, thank you.

      I’m still learning too! I’m lucky my husband knows things, otherwise I’d be so lost. Good luck to you on your business endeavors. 🙂

            Or Camp Lejeune. We were they for a time, it’s interesting to get used to if you haven’t lived in the south before. That humidity, man. Not fun. 😛

            My parents met when they were Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune during WWI. 😎 Neither was from there. 😎 From San Diego, never lived there. 😎

    As a Navy wife for 6 years now living in Sicily, I’m wondering what I can do to earn extra money. Even though I’ve been told it isn’t necessary, but with a spending splurge needed here and there I’ve got to find something….:)

      I know what you mean. Although we don’t ever need me to, I work everywhere we’re lived. It makes me feel like I contribute.

    Hey Amber, I just found you through crochet me and got your 2 purses the Diana and the Willow , I read your about me page and you were telling my story almost to a T, My husband is a retired Marine but my Daddy is too my Daddy was in for 27 yrs and retired when I pregnant with my 2 child in 91 and my husband was in for 20 yrs and retired n 02. Anyway we were married before but we have 7 children and 5 grandchildren. nw this is gonna blow your socks off. There all boys except the oldest,our 31 yr old and shse has 1 boy 9 mo and then there are “THE BOYS” 27,25,24, 21, 19 & 8 and the 21 yr old has 4 boys 4,3,2, 7 & 3wks. so any way my little wheels are spinning up there trying to come up with something to make especially boy themed since theres not that much out there. If you have any tips or suggestions I would love to hear from you. thank you so much for your beuatiful work

      Susanne,
      What sort of boy items are you looking for? Honestly, I think a lot of my designs, hats and scarves, could easily be used for men. Last year a friend of mine commissioned a version of my Willow Hat 2.0, in black, grey and orange, for himself. I loves it. Just depends on what they like, really. 😀
      Let me know what you’re thinking, I could work on it.

    I love your creativity and how you have found a way to make your unique designs for such a variety of things that there is something for everyone and also for those, like me, who like to change up things between projects. I also love your Facebook Live videos, very informative. Thank you for your hard work, it is appreciated.
