Ship's Log  08.30.2013


Ahoy Mateys! This be a special post to introduce ye to a wonderfully talented young lady. My daughter, Jackie Ramsdell, has a passion for crocheting. She has opened up her own Etsy shop and she makes the most adorable lovey blankets, characters and more. I wanted to share some photos of her projects along with links to her Etsy page, Facebook page and Pinterest Board. I hope you enjoy this post and visit Jackie's shop soon. Her items are well made and reasonably priced. She can use most any color you want for each project and she even takes requests. If you have a certain theme or character in mind, just ask and she will do her best to create it for you. She will always show you the end product before shipping it to you, to make sure it is what you want. So, please enjoy these pictures and make sure to visit her shop HERE.

Meet my daughter,
Jackie Kathleen Ramsdell

Jackie is a stay-at-home mommy that works hard taking care of her house and my granddaughter, Cassie. Jackie is also due to have her second daughter late Sept/early Oct. (obviously, this is an older photo) She learned the basics of crocheting in school and then quickly surpassed her teacher and began to create gorgeous projects. She stopped crocheting for a while and then got back into it in a big way. As you can see from the pictures, she can create lovey blankets, bigger blankets, characters that stand alone, baby clothing and more. Her Loveys would make great baby shower gifts! She is always adding to her shop, so stop by regularly to see what she has to offer.
