Shop closed till January 2013

Wow, What an amazing year of crochet it has been. I started picking up with my etsy shop willowsgarden in November of last year and have not stopped crocheting since then. I am so thankful that I am able to stay at home with my little one and make additional income with a hobby I have done since I was 8 years old.

I am so appreciative to my clients for making it possible for me to stay at home. I love what I do. I get to be part of your newborn's memories.

I look forward to re-openning the first week of January with some new items. Look for Goldilocks and Little Red- photos by
as well as boy and girl dinosaurs, puppy hat and diaper cover, baby peacock and some new Spring animals.

Thanks again for your support. Happy Holidays everyone.

Fall is here.....

Here are some of my other new items for fall .......

Baby Scarecrow Hat (available until Thanksgiving)- $22
 Can be made with yarn tie or raffia tie and can also change the color of the patches.

Baby Caterpillar Hat-$40
Love the different texture yarn I used for the cocoon. This is also available in a red and orange textured with an orange or red hat- as well as a brown and red textured with a red hat.

I am loving my first Fall back in New York in 12 years. It has been so inspiring here with all the beautiful colors. I only wish I had more time to add new hats to the shop. I have been busy catching up on mermaid orders for Halloween.... If I catch up in another week or so I will be able to make a few more mermaids before Halloween.   Next I will be working on some things for Christmas, so keep checking back for new items.

Thanks to Katrina Elena for your adorable scarecrow shot-
Thanks to Brian and Amanda Photography for the great caterpillar shot.

Also new is my little man suit- $40
Customize your own.

What I am up too....

         I have been crazily trying to catch up on orders the past few weeks, so I decided to close my shop so that I could get the orders done and enjoy the last few weeks of summer with my 18 month old son. I have also been coming up with new hat ideas for the fall. Currently in the works Halloween props. My Halloween line will feature a witches hat, black cat and Frankenstein hat.

         My fall line is finished and just awaiting newborn models. Coming soon apple and pumpkin hat and baby scarecrow. I am in love with the scarecrow set, which features the hat with straw hair as well as a coordinating cape, which includes felt patches.

I have the pleasure of working with two awesome photographers. Katrina Elena from Palm Beach County , Florida and Brian-and- Amanda Photography from California. They are both very talented with working with newborns and I love what they each come up with. I am always looking for newborn photographers though, so if you are a photographer or know someone who is let them know. I am willing to work out a trade.

SO hopefully be back soon with some photos of my new merchandise, until then stay tune to shop reopenning next weekend.

Getting ready for Fall

Well we are just getting settled into our new home in Upstate New York. It has been a very hectic 2 months with moving, orders, and taking care of a very active toddler, but things are starting to calm down and we are feeling more at home now. I have been frantically trying to make new merchandise for the fall season and catch up on all orders, but time has been limited. I hope to have some new things to add in the coming weeks. The shop is currently closed so that I can enjoy the last few weeks of summer with my 18 month old and work on new ideas. Please check in at the shop often. I plan to reopen after Labor day.
