What is a photo work trade?

A photo work trade is where I make one of my crocheted items and mail it directly to the photographer. Once the photographer has taken and processed/edit the pictures, they email the finished pictures to me at

No money exchange hands.

Do I qualify for a work trade?
In order to qualify for this work trade you have to be a professional photographer who has a website, blog, photo stream, etc, that can be view online.

How many hats can I have to shoot?
If this is our first photo trade there is a limit of 1-2 hats. There are exceptions, so please let me know when you contact me.

If you have a question please leave a comment or email me at

I need your help to make 250 hats!

This is something extremely close to my heart! I'm teaming up with my local Ronald McDonald House RMCH, here in Toledo, Ohio, to make 250 preemie crocheted hats! Yes....I said 250!

If you're like me, you want so desperately to help...someone...but you don't know what to do or where to go!

When I called the RMCH I asked if my donating a few hats to parents and their little ones would help. With excitement, they said it would help! They told me the majority of children they treat/help are premature babies.

I asked what the average head circumference of these babies. I was told the size of a peach!!!! These babies are only 12 inches on average! I had such a lump in my throat and an overwhelming desire to do this!

I have never seen a baby that small! My first born, Jaxon, was 5 weeks premature and weighed 4 pounds 11ozs. Well, these babies are only 1-2 pounds!

The RMCH told me they see about 200 babies a year and I'm determined to make at least 250!

So the plan is to make 125 little girl hats and 125 little boy hats.

Here's where you come in...
If you would like to help, please donate a $1. This donation will go toward purchasing all the materials, mainly 100% cotton yarn, to make these hats. You can donate more, but only a dollar is needed. No more, no less!

I will keep you up to date on how many hats I have made and how much is donated.

Once I have complete these hats, I'm moving on to the next Ronald McDonald House...perhaps in your area!
