Celebrating Pets

This whimsical cat art was created by me and inspired by “Michu” (our oldest son) Juan’s first pet. Juan was just 10 when we adopted Michu, and Michu’s favorite pastime was to stare at me for hours. And it did freak me out! 🙂 Silly me, I know!

This cat art greeting card is perfect for cat lovers!

Tie Dye Aprons on Etsy

What’s prettier than polka dots? An apron on a polka dot outfit! This apron is tie dyed by me in soft tones of pink, purple and blue. So unique and chic! It’s very cute to wear while entertaining guests.

Summer Crop Tops

A new crop top collection arrived at my shop. These tops are the best for swimming pool and beach parties. They are great as bikini and swimming suit tops or simply to complement any relaxed outfit. 

I love to wear relaxed outfits to make the most of the fun warmer weather!

Entertaining

Recently a repeat customer asked me to make a custom order for her. I was happily surprised when I realized that she had uncovered a unique new item for my shop and for everyone else too. Her custom order came with a fun background. My customer said that she wanted a wine glass base so her guests knew how to identify their wine glass. She wanted to offer an elegant way to do this to avoid having people mistakenly drinking​ from someone else’s glass. Voila! This project idea was born!

This is a smart, beautiful gift idea for Mom, housewarming, newly Weds, etc. I also think these would be beautiful for a wedding table, adorned with some extras and in white or light color yarn.

Hand Dyed Yarn


These warmer months are perfect to start planning your DIY projects and to get them started!  I love to Crochet and knit so after a great deal of thought I decided to start dying my yarn for my projects. The color combinations were so unique and beautiful that I decided to open an Etsy shop to just sell hand dyed yarn. I truly think that the more thought I put into the design the better my final project result will be 

Check out my yarn shop. Everything is hand dyed by me with a lot of care and attention to detail. Every yarn is so beautiful and unique! In future posts I will share my process too! 

YarnByAna is the name of my yarn shop. This speckled yarn is one of my favorites! 

Fun Spring colors in this hand dyed speckled yarn!

I am a maker, like many out there. I started my home business working with my hands a few years ago.

My Etsy shop was born because I wanted a place to honor my Mom. She taught me crochet at age 10. It has stayed with me since then. She’s passed now, but the most beautiful memories are still with me. We used to share in a project together.We laughed and spent that quality time together.

New Summer and Spring inspired tops on Etsy

New beautiful, handmade, spring and summer inspired tops for teens in my shop.
Soon we’ll be putting our coats away and reaching out for shorts and t-shirts. I am ready to do just that! So I started working on these tops and little by little I will definitely continue to be inspired by the upcoming lovely warmer seasons.

How much do I miss long walks and relaxing days at the beach! These tops are inspired by my life as a child and young adult by the sea side. There are more tops in my shop like this but this one is my favorite! I am adding some additional photos with some of the other tops here as well.

I will definitely get more material for other fun creations and designs. I just can’t wait! 🙂

Tie Dye in Solid Colors

Typically when I hear tie dye I imagine a mix of bright yellow, green and red on shirts. Not that it’s not fun, but I experimented designing other tie dye accessories and started with hair accessories. Then I thought of solid color tie dye and/or family of colors in tie dye, and I loved the results!

Here are some pictures.  You may click on them for more information. Enjoy!
