Team... aka The Buddies

We are a group of experienced crocheters, crafters and writers who love traveling, brainstorming, new patterns and really cool ideas. Meet the folks who are going to take your creativity to a whole new level.



In Charge (well, almost)

Hello everyone! I'm Orchid, the "human" who started this site. I've been crocheting for about 5 years now, and love being able to share knowledge and ideas with fellow crocheters, crafters and anyone who stops by. I also love giving advice to those new to the crafting world. If you're stuck on a project, or need some special form of inspiration, you've come to the right place. Welcome to the community!



    Writer, crafter, best friend and motivation extraordinaire

    Hey all! I’m Olive. I am Orchid’s best friend and very proud to be a part of this fabulous project! (And did I mention I’m human? That seems important.) My posts will range from DIY projects, to picture posts of the glimmers of wonder I see around me as I go through my days. I’m also working on a trilogy novel series “The Song of the Midnight Flower”, which is constantly being inspired by everything around me. I can’t wait to meet you, and share my creative visions with you guys!



      A feisty young adventurer with a unique point of view

      Hey you guys! Wren here. I'm one of Orchid's characters: a 6" mini doll, model for various items for sale, and occasional narrator of the Blog. I'm here to bring you along on an adventure through the eyes of a mini doll. You ready? Let's begin! :)
