Handmade Christmas #1

Starting today for the next 7 days I will feature

some of the most talented artists that can help your
BUY HANDMADE dreams come true!

Becky Dossey, 29, Glendale az

What inspires you? Colors! I love playing with color combos, and I love how colors make people light up

What makes you happy? My husband, my children, my mom, my grandparents, and my church.

Where did you learn to crochet/knit? I kept getting into my Grandma's yarn, and so she finally just taught me how to crochet when I was about 6 years old. She has this eye for perfection, and even at the young age if I missed a stitch she would have me go back and fix the error, so her eye for perfection is instilled in me and my work shows it.

Favorite Christmas song? Holy Night

What is your favorite homemade gift you have ever received: My mother is a jewelry designer... craftyness runs in my family, and she made me a mothers bracelet, with all 4 of my kids names, it's a 4 strand clear swarovski and bali silver and it's just BEAUTIFUL!!! It's one of my most cherished items.

One word that describes you? Quirky... I've been told that a few times!

Here I am with one of Becky's creations. The hat sits so delicately on top of my head and she crocheted me two darling flowers to add (one in yellow and one in red) DARLING!

Other favorites are Becky's darling neck-warmers.
Perfect for the cooler season and charming as well.
