Hi, just a little about myself and what i do

Image Here is a little story about how my business name was developed. And a bit about me and what i do.

I’m a self taught artisan, who loves crafting almost as much as i love my children and Gucci by English Bulldog…
I’ve been crafting since i was 6 years old and i’m (well just old) and lets just say i’ve been crafting for A LOT of years….I can make just about anything i put my mind to., but have found i love upcycling/recycling items the best. Its almost like when you rescue an unloved animal you give it another chance to be loved. The Name of my business ilovethelmalu was created from my mothers name “Thelma Lucile”.
She always wanted to be famous., so i thought i would give her the change to do just that.. Although my shop isn’t famous “yet”she believes it will be…She is turning 94 years old this year and knowing this shop and my creations are named after her makes her VERY happy. Her memory isn’t as sharp as it used to be, but when ever i call her the first thing she asks is : “iLoveThelmaLu famous yet”? It warms my heart knowing this makes her smile…after all she taught me all my crafting. She started me crocheting and knitting at the age of 6 years old. Than on to needlepoint,cross stitch and sewing etc…

Thanks “Thelma Lucile” for passing on you’re crafting talent to me…. I’ll love you always and forever….

I use ( my wonderful dad who has passed on) and my loving mom photos from when they where young as my logo.
