About the Author

Hello friends, my name is Olivia! Over the last few years of my blogging journey, I’ve love exploring through the wonderful world of crochet, and using those techniques I’ve learned to create adorable baby accessories, chic cowls and fashionable flapper hats! In addition to crocheting, I’m also very passionate about teaching others a love for learning and creating.
I hope to inspire people to keep on creating, and to fill the world with new creativity, ideas and beauty…
