I am a smart, beautiful, successful Belizean creole. I was born in Vancouver, BC, Canada and now call Scarborough, Ontario, Canada home. I am mixed with african, indian, scottish and who knows what else. July 2008 I decided to go permanently natural. Beside my obsession with my natural hair, I am a hand knit and crochet artist. I am passionate about Jesus and I love to run, walk, yoga, read, crossword puzzles, news and sports.

*Joyful Tips*

- Use a high quality liquid detergent, specially designed for knitwear.
- 100% Wool should always be dry cleaned.
- Only wash wool blends, and wash by hand or choose handwash on your machine settings.
- To remove excess water roll in a fluffy towel and squeeze gently, or you can do a gentlle short spin.
- Dry flat on a towel away from direct heat and sunlight, this will ensure it does not lose its shape. Never hang your sweaters on hangers.
- Wash separately, never wash knits with other material this will make your knits pill.
- Once you remove the sweater from the spin cycle, it is important to reshape it while it is still damp.
