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.

Events Update

Now until end of January 2011 - The Purple Thumb, location in the Beaches located at 1887 Queen Street East @ Woodbine is now housing my knit and crochet items.

A Christmas Showcase at Retirement Suites by the Lake went amazing. I invited my friend Dawn to accompany me and bring along her own knitting and crochet items. It was a beautiful day and spending time with seniors made the day very pleasant. I was invited back to do a Valentine Showcase and an Easter Showcase.

A Christmas Shopping Spree was more a networking event than an actual shopping spree. I did very well and got some amazing contacts and a few custom orders. Most of my neighbours walked away disappointed with little or no sales.

*Joyful Tips*

This is a huge pet peeve for most people that love to wear knitted garments and accessories.

How to Reduce Pilling on a Knitted Garment

****Drop 2 or 3 drops of glycerine in the water for a complete cycle in the washing machine, if it's wash by hand, only 1 drop, no more because it's greasy!

****Glycerine gives back softness to the yarn and you can use in with fabrics too but! NEVER DRY BY MACHINE!!! It will stick and make all your efforts useless.


Thank you friends and family for supporting me and buying my items and for ordering customized items over the month of November, your business is much appreciated!

Please do not delete this email, share the JOY with someone you Love...

Thank you for Reliving the JOY!
