Updating Site to Serve You Better and Make You Smile


The site will be going through some changes to serve you better.

Some areas of the site, will not be visible and you should receive notice of that if a section is not available at that time.

I will be adding three categories that I think will help people with their business; products, operations, and marketing.  In business, you should be focusing on your products, on your operations, and on your marketing.

Another area, that needs to be addressed is questions and feedback.

Thank you for your consideration.

Introducing "Simply Feminine Flower Bracelet"; To be Added Soon to the "Designers Products"

I enjoyed creating this piece.  And, since the flower measured a bit over 3", it needed a thick band.  Therefore, I made the band 1.5" thick.

When I was creating this bracelet, I thought about a friend who was allergic to metals.  And, therefore, could not use any type of jewelry.  With this thought in mind, I made the band with knitting techniques so that the band will stretch and slide to her hand.  And, since metals give the flower its shape, I use crocheting techniques to cover most of the metal.

This bracelet fits a 6" wrist.  And, it can be custom made to fit any size wrist.

The center of the flower is amethyst color and sewing techniques were used to create it.



Sincerely,


Leticia N. Hernandez

Planning, The Essential Step, Style 611, Artisan Beanie Hat Coming To You Soon


It all started with 3 yarn colors.  I knew that I had to create my new design; just had nothing in mind when I woke up.



And, an idea came to mind this morning while I was going up and down the stairs.  Right away, I grabbed my binder where I keep my designs, and started sketching the new design that came to mind.

My planning is not complicated.  Sketching the new artisan beanie hat design, is my first step in planning, because it gives me the direction where I want to go; that is to get to the finished product.

The other steps involve getting it ready and available to my clients via the "Designer's Products" tab.

Have a glorious day,

I am excited! I found within nature the idea for the new custom artisan beanie hat

I find Inspiration for style 610 custom artisan beanie hats in nature and in everyday living.  I just look for those moments when I see color combinations that attract my eye.



Then, a few days ago, I saw beauty in nature and an idea was born.  The idea is a dream which can remain only a dream if we do not act upon it.  If you know me, I act on that dream by focusing it on a star.  And, the paperwork starts.  Boring!  Not everything can be pleasure, and having a system in place makes the process of having a dream and converting it into a reality that I can bring to you.

Now, I know what colors to use for my new custom artisan beanie hat.  And, I am thinking now about the technique to use for my new custom artisan beanie hat so that it resembles the beauty of nature.

When I create these artisan beanie hats, I imagine someone at the other end of me, opening their box smiling and loving their artisan beanie hat.  Smiles is what keeps me going day to day; I love what I do.

Style 610 should be available to you within this week.  There is going to be a limited quantity of this design because I cannot guarantee that I will be able to source the yarn color.

Size available will be S M L.  If you do not know your size, contact me so that I can assist you how to give me a number so that I can determine your size.

Need a gift for someone?  Give them the gift of something that is not mass produced.  Give them the gift of warmth to keep your loved one's head warm this winter.

And, let me not forget to give thanks to Heavenly Father for everything; always.

 

Have a blessed day,

"Oh my God!" Is that a stamp of approval for the "Bola Elf Hat"?

Good morning,

When I am not expecting anyone, and I walk into a room and someone pops out of no where, I could not help it; I screamed and started stumping my feet like crazy.  And, my son just laughs; unbelievable!

Then, when all this is over, I lead my son to where his "Bola Elf Hat" is completed and ready for him.  And, his girlfriend exclaims with a smile of approval, "Oh my God!".



And, now I am working in another version of this design in different colors per a client's request.

I want all of you to have a blessed day and a lovely weekend.

Little Jack paid for his beanie hat with hugs, smiles and kisses

I do not see Little Jack very often; when I do, I receive hugs, smiles and kisses.  And, last time I saw him I said I was going to make him a beanie hat.



Good thing I am a custom beanie hat designer and maker plus many other things.  I just enjoy crocheting most of the time.  And, Saturday night I did not feel sleepy and I decided to design, create, and give the custom beanie hat to his aunt the next morning so that she could give it to Little Jack.

Little Jack is going to have his head warm this coming winter.

If you want a custom beanie hat like the one I made for Little Jack, submit the contact form and request Style 602.  I will contact you to obtain the head circumference measurement, and finalize the custom beanie hat request.

Kind Regards,

Must have been my intuition!

Last night I could not sleep; turning, and turning, and turning.  My mind would just not go to sleep.

New ideas coming to mind on how to do things better with this artisan hat business; should I say more efficiently.

Production; that was what I was thinking about.  I was even thinking outsourcing, but each artisan has it own hand.  How I crochet is not how my daughter crochets.  Even my sister once said, "Look how she holds the needle!"  And, that is true.  I do not hold the crocheting needle like most people.  I had to adapt when I had an issue with my hands in the past.

Crocheting is something I love to do.  But, I know I cannot make a living at it; maybe I can, but that is not my goal.  Crocheting for a living would be too time consuming.

My goal is having many streams of income.


Have a lovely and blessed day,

A goal, a dream, may seem overwhelming, but ... makes it manageable.

You see, I made a commitment.  And, my goal is overwhelming, but what I do everyday is what makes it manageable.

I have a background in manufacturing.  I started from the bottom.  I know production, design, quality, and dealing on a daily basis with managers in the top levels of other manufacturing companies.  I have years of experience.

All that knowledge I am applying it now to my dreams and goals.  I enjoy flexibility and I work around my family needs.

First, I had to focus on my star, once I focus on my star, I have to plan how to achieve it.  My dream is ambitious, and the payment is going to be smiles.

Imagine, I have a goal to make 100 hundred of these crowns; it is just a component of a bigger product.  Each day I make a few, sooner or later in the near future, I would have eaten the whole elephant.



Have a lovely and blessed day,

Unbelievable! A young man approached me and requested a custom artisan hat.

"You never made me a hat?" the young man said.  "I made you a grey one," I responded.  "I want a football hat," he replied.  "What team?" I asked.  His response is confidential.  "What design?" I asked.  "Can you put a logo?" he asked.  "No," I replied.  Then, I measured his head, and he was on his way.

It is nice to know that young people like my work.  This young man has requested so many head bands.  And, it is nice to know that now he wants a custom artisan hat.

I just cannot say no to him; he is also my hat/head band model.

The hat that is being modeled here was part of a collection that is at this time no longer available.



If you want to request a custom artisan hat, just complete and submit the form.

Have a lovely and blessed day,

Life is sweet when you have a purpose ... I am a hatter; one of my things I like to do is make hats.

I love making hats, and what more beautiful purpose than to make hats for children with cancer.  I have created myself an ambitious goal, that most likely I will be able to deliver by the end of the year.

It is so easy just to create a hat, create a listing, and add a Paypal button.  Amazingly, I enjoy most interacting with people and getting the information from them on what they want.

It all started with "Leti, I want one".  I could just made her a hat, without considering her wants, and ship it to her.  My goal was to make her a hat that she would be happy.  Unbelievable!  We used "Messenger" to communicate and this is what I designed for her.

And, although there is some lead time on these hats, we finalized the details yesterday, I rolled up my sleeves and started working, and the package is ready to ship today.





Therefore, if you are considering a custom hat for you or for a loved one as a gift, just complete this form and submit to me.  Just remember that there is a lead time on these custom hats.

Have a lovely and blessed day,

It all began with a need, a sketch choice, a head circumference, and the artisan hat maker

What a hot and peaceful morning.  When I have time, I like to enjoy my skills and create artisan hats.
I promised hats to two special people in my life.  And, I knew what was their favorite football team and I knew winter was coming.  Once, they told me their head circumference, I decided to sketch 3 different designs.  And, I text then and asked them to pick their design.  I received a response really quick.  Then, I began to work.



It is not the same when a design is on a foam head then when it is on a person.  I love how Kari looks wearing her artisan hat.

This hats are not available for sale in the "Products" section yet.  They will be for the regular size 21" in the near future.  If you need a custom size artisan hat, contact me.

Have a lovely and blessed day,

Unbelievable! I cannot get this hat model to be serious.

This artisan hat is about to be added to the "products" section of the blog.  My model is not the serious type; she is one of a kind.  Therefore, I just want this hat model to be herself.




Have a lovely and blessed day,

Awareness Of Another Artisan Hat

"Mom, I had to see your design, it looked like flowers from over here," Cartoon said.  Cartoon was a nickname that her father gave her.  And, it was funny to hear him call my granddaughter that yesterday.

"No, daughter.  It is not flowers, it is the color of the yarn that gives it a very interesting look to the artisan hat," I responded.



"For whom did you create the artisan hat for?" Cartoon asked.  "It is for the online store.  I am uploading it tomorrow," I responded.  "I want an artisan hat like that for Chelsea, mom," she said.

Lucky Chelsea that has a grandma that loves to spoil her.



Have a lovely and blessed day,

What's New ~ Focusing On Your Star

There is a new eBook in progress that will enable you to know a bit more about me; I used my intuition to take a 360 degrees turn in my life.  This new eBook will be available to you soon.

In the eBook "Focusing On Your Star" is about how I think to keep moving forward in achieving my goals.  A little noise in our lives is ok; makes our life interesting.  But to much noise and spending to much time in the noise, can distract us from doing what we have to do to keep moving forward.  I like calling my goals stars.



Noise?  Noise to me is anything that keeps us from focusing on what we have to do to move forward.  There is much noise in Social Media that does not benefit us.  We need to focus on the Social Media that does help us; the social media that helps us move forward.  Social Media is a tool.  And, the results depend on who is using that tool and how.

Thanking all my readers,
