Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice...
That's what little girls are made of, but what of teens, young women, adults and seniors? As we get older, no longer little girls, we find that life is made out of complicated stuff...yes, there is sugar and spice, but there's also a little bit of this, a little bit of that with a whole lot of twists and turns thrown into the mix. And, just like the twist of lemon in our favorite drink, those twists make for the special moments in life, the special memories, and the special, happy times.
My goal at Made with a Twist is to put a little bit of that 'something' into every piece that I design and make for you...a twist of whimsy, a twist of grace, a twist of joy, and a little twist of sass to make things interesting. All of this, with the hopes of producing a product that makes you feel cared for, cozy, warm, spoiled, happy, beautiful and strong.
When you put on my designs, I hope you sense the love and care that I put into each piece and that whatever it is that you're looking for from your purchase of my luxurious handmade winter wear, you find it in abundance.
Made with a Twist is an independently owned and operated design and crochet studio that was borne out of my love for creating and my love for people. I've been crocheting for over 40 years and when I started selling my products in December of 2013 I had no idea the blessings it would bring to not only me and my family but to my many customers.
Nothing makes me happier than seeing faces light up as fair-goers gently touch the ultra-softness of the products I have displayed. Then, when even the most hesitant of women slips on a hat insisting, "I look terrible in hats..." She looks in the mirror and begins to glow....she feels beautiful. That is why I create - to bring joy.
As both a Christian Counselor and Crochet Designer, my desire is help people embrace their identity as precious, valuable, and beautiful souls.
Each pattern and product is developed and created in my southern Colorado studio where I live with my husband, Kevin, and our two dogs. The views of the mountains outside my window, the breezes that blow on the plains, the changing leaves and falling snow all inspire me to create my unique designs.
Won't you allow me the honor of making something beautiful just for you?
Owner, Designer, Crocheter
I learned to crochet as a child, sitting on the couch with my mom. Since then, I just haven't been able to put the crochet hook down. I love creating pieces that make my customers feel special.
Gaytha is my sweet and wonderful mom. Every December, when she visits for the holidays, she is in charge of special touches, embellishments and product tags. We love having her here to lend a hand!
During our busiest season, Kevin is in charge of purchasing and making frequent runs to the Post Office. He is, also, my biggest supporter, encourager and husband.
Each order received here is a blessing to me and my family, so I treat each purchase with care. Please feel free to convo me with questions, custom order requests or any problems you might have with your order. I pride myself in providing excellent customer service, and promise to get back with you as soon as possible.
