New Items!

I have been hinting about these new items on Facebook all weekend (are you a fan? If not, why not???) and finally they are here! Some are headed to Heilman's for instant pick up, and others are "ready to ship" from my Etsy shop. And as always custom orders are available!


Flower Earwarmers

For those not wanting a hat but still wanting a cute and warm way to cover their ears! It is wide enough to cover your ears without being to overpowering. There is a button closure on the back side.

One size fits average woman's head.

The second item is equally as exciting but more much aimed at spring!


The perfect accessory for a night out! Whether it's out on the town for a girls night or a date night with that special someone these are perfect.

Fully lined with a cute fabric and quited fabric for thickness. A zipper closer and a strap to carry it. The outside is soft from the yarn and adorned with a cute little flower.

Size - approx. 8 1/2 inches wide by 5 1/2 inches tall.

Aren't they just adorable? They would be great for a birthday gift, bridesmaid gift - and many more!

What is your favorite color?

Love is...

Having a husband that puts up with...

... yarn all over the house

... searching Michaels and Hobby Lobby for that "just-right" color

... listening to me endlessly chatter about crocheting

... having to critique my work, and does so carefully

... the fashion show every time I make something new

Thank you for all you do hubby.
Love you, today and always.

Live in West Michigan?

Well, if you do you are probably still digging out from the massive snowstorm (jealous, by the way!). But I also want to let you know some exciting news!

You can now buy something diane made hats and neckwarmers straight off the shelves at Heilman's Nuts & Confections. They have so graciously allowed me to put my items in their already super tasty store. It's a great way to see some of my items first hand and to find the correct size so you can place a custom order!

So stop on in - try on a hat, and I dare you not to buy some chocolates or nuts! PLUS, their coffee is always on the house.

Heilman's is located at 1804 S. Westnedge Ave, Kalamazoo. (The corner of Howard St. and Westnedge, across the street from the Chicken Coop).

Want to see some of the hats that are there? Ok, here goes!

size small:

size medium:

size large:

Make sure to stop in a see them - they are a wonderful little local place in Kalamzoo.

What are your favorite local places?

Tiny Emaly Rose

My cousin's girlfriend had her baby premature about 2 weeks ago. This beautiful little girl came into the world at 2 lbs. 13 oz. When my aunt asked me to make her a hat, I was so honored but had no idea how to make one that small!

And my first try, was actually too small :) Not sure how I did that!

Here is the too small one

Here is the second try, that fit perfectly!

Isn't she just precious?
