About Me

This is me...Giannina or just "G" for short. I am a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and of course I like to call myself a  crafter.
This is my Honey...Chris, he's the love of my life, my biggest supporter, my biggest fan and my partner in Crime! We've been together for 9 years, married for 8, and I don't know what I would do without him! He drives me crazier than anyone else I know, but he's my rock, and the only one that can talk me down from crazy mountain (besides my Mom)!
Chris is the handy man of the family (worked in a cabinet shop for 7 years) and the one who does all the wood/technical stuff that my crazy crafts and ideas entail...he helps me brain storm new ideas and holds down the fort when I'm off and running on a crafty adventure or working to fill orders! He does more than most husbands, and doesn't always get the credit he deserves (This Counts Right?)
This is our cute little family. My support team, the Loves of my Life, my inspiration for all things crafty and fantastic! The hubster and I have 4 beautifully wonderful children who keep things busy and interesting:
Carson is 5 1/2 (you know the 1/2 is important), just started Kindergarten this year, and he LOVES all things BOY: Transformers, Sports, Spiderman, Video Games, Xbox, Wii, maps, puzzles, games and thankfully School. Carson likes to say that Mommy is "a crafter and crafts make mommy happy!" Did I mention how SMART he is??             
This Little Princess is Lilliana! She is 4 going on 14, a MAJOR Daddy's Girl, and is as Girly as a girl can be, although like her Girly Momma she has a hidden tomboy side. Our little LilliBean loves Hello Kitty, My Little Pony, Strawberry Shortcake, Barbies, ANYTHING Pink or Purple, Dance, Soccer, Accessorizing (check out her bling in the picture above...that was ALL her) and being Crafty (So Proud!).
Our Little Man Landon is 3, he loves being the center of attention, the life of the party, the comedian of the family. He loves all things boy, has a major Imagination and is more Mischievous than any Boy ever should be!  He loves Transformers, Thomas the Train, Being a Robot, Race Cars, wrestling, shooting, sports and constantly makes us laugh with is amazing one-liners and sly smiles!
The baby! Giuliana (Gules, Gulie, Gulesy, chunky monkey...) is 6 months old and she is a ray of sunshine! She's my little Momma and the apple of her Daddy's eye. She is loved to pieces (sometimes TOO much) by her big brothers and sister and is a happy, giggly, wiggly, chubby little ball of sweet goodness! We could not have been blessed with a more perfect baby, she's sweet as can be, a cuddle bug, sleeps like an angel and only cries to let you know it's time to eat! (but believe me she's NEVER missed a meal and you can tell) I love her like she's my last baby, but secretly hope that she is not!

In my spare time I love creating beautiful, functional, crafty things for my kids, myself, my home and for others!

I have always been "crafty" and I love creating, organizing and transforming everyday things into something beautiful/functional. I learned to crochet very young, but really got into it when my husband and I were first married. My love as well as my skills in crochet really got off the ground when I realized that there were so many beautiful things that I could make for my babies and my home. That's when I realized that being able to let my creativity flow was something that kept me sane and happy, and I haven't stopped crocheting and creating since!

I spend most of my free time crocheting. Crocheting relaxes me after a busy day. I often crochet late into the night and still hate to put it down to go to sleep. I often can't sleep at night because I'm thinking or designing something new in my head and even dream of new designs from time to time! I have so many ideas, but so little time. I am trying to add more designs and products for you as often as I can, but can only work in the little free time I have at the end of the day.

LilliBean is the nickname that I gave to my 4 year old daughter Lilliana when she was a newborn. She is, "My Little LilliBean," Needless to say the nickname stuck and since I started crocheting again to make her cute little hats and beautiful things, I thought it was only proper to have my website reflect that. I hope you enjoy my little shop, and Thanks for visiting!
