"My name is Candace Rasmussen, I am married to my sweetheart, Brian, and a stay at home mom to two wild boys and one sweet girl in Rexburg, Idaho.
Knotty Tots. It all started with a pair of leg warmers. Two years ago I wanted to crochet my daughter a pair of leg warmers but I couldn't find a pattern anywhere. I had only recently learned how to crochet, but using a couple techniques I had learned I started to make up my own pattern. The first several (dozen) pairs were not quite what I was looking for and I continued to change the pattern until I finally came up with something I really loved. People around me would notice them and started asking me about them and where I got them.
So I made several pairs and signed up to do a craft fair. After that I decided to start up an Etsy shop and started out the first couple weeks fairly slow. Then things took off! I came up with a crochet flower with my signature 'knot' in the middle. From there I have added to my collection with crochet top dresses, stuffed animals, hats, and headbands.
My shop has been open for 7 months and the response has been great! I have had international orders sent to Canada, Spain, United Kingdom, Australia, Brazil, and Iraq! I have also recently sent (along with other handmade sellers) a basket with items to Tori Spelling!
This business has been incredible for me, an outlet for my creativity and the opportunity to meet new people and receive recognition from others. All while having flexibility and being able to continue to stay home with my children. I love what I do!"
Please help me give Candace and her adorable shop Knotty Tots a very warm welcome and hop on over THERE and have a better look at all these amazing goodies she has to offer.
Anything from Candace's shop would make an A*M*A*Z*I*N*G Christmas, birthday or shower gift. I would LOVE to get a pair of these leg warmers for Ginger's shower! I would be so blown away! I just love all this handmade goodness. Please consider buying handmade gifts this year!!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS and HAPPY SHOPPING!!!
