ANN & ANN DOLLS: These dolls are crazy cute and crazy to make, but I really like them! Surprisingly, I have made quite a few orders for this brother and sister team.

AFRO-PUFF DOLLS: I'm crazy about these dolls!

Beret Beanie & Flower Clips

BERET BEANIE W/ FLOWER ACCESSORIES: Hands down, this is my most popular hat! I personally love the fact that you can wear this hat with every outfit!

I make the beret in ecru or white in sizes newborn to adult. The cool thing about this hat is the flower accessories! Each beret and flower have a snap button sown on them so you can change the look of the hat to match any outfit! So far I have available 15 colors to choose from for the flower accessories.

FLOWER CLIPS: Now these are fun! These flower clips are super cute! You have the same 15 colors chocies for the flowers, but these flower has a 60mm (2 3/8") size rectangular clip fastened to it.

Of course, you can find these in my shop:

About Me...

Hello! My name is Jenel, aka Simply J. I'm a mother of two extremely cute little boys, Jaxon 4 years old and Ian 2 years old. They truly make being a mom 'easy'. They are such good little boys!
I absolutely love to crochet! I've been doing it for some time now and it's completely relaxing. I never really thought I could sell my items...didn't think anyone would like it but me. I think I start selling at craft shows in 2002 and was excited to see that others really liked my stuff! I opened my Etsy shop late August 2008. I'm thrilled by it's success...I never dreamed that it would be like this!
I work full time outside my home, care for my boys and crochet. So many have asked 'when do I find the time?' Well, you have steal a few minutes here and there and you have to learn how to crochet FAST.' ;)

I decided to open a blog...because everyone else had one :) ...but I thought it would be fun! You can connect with a lot of people via blogging.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you return soon!
