31 Days of Sensational Shops - DunnWithLove

31 Days of Sensational Shops is a month long tour of geeky, fantasy and/or monster-filled shops in December. Please stick around to learn more about today's Sensational Shop!

Today's Sensational Shop is DunnWithLove - run by Lisa Dunn.

Tell us about you - the creator!

I'm a stay at home Mama to a wonderful little girl, a black labrador, a black pug, and I've been married to my very best friend for 5 years. When I'm not playing make believe or building massive lego towers, I'm crocheting cute and cuddly things!

Describe your shop and what you sell

I'm a crocheter who's obsessed with everything cute. Lately I enjoy making cuddly animals or cute versions of popular characters from TV, movies, and video games. I can also make character hats, beanies, and cuddly scarves to keep you fashionable and warm. 

What is your favorite item to make? Why?

Anything plush! I love seeing creatures come to life. Crocheting all of the pieces is what I'm best at, but when I have to create a face or a certain expression it's what challenges me most. I love seeing something with a cute cheery face or silly smirk!

How and when did you start your business?

I started around 4 years ago when I was pregnant. I needed something to pass the time when my husband was working a 3rd shift job. I began with baby hats and I was so so horrible at first! 

Where can buyers find you?

Thank you so much for stopping by and meeting Lisa Dunn of DunnWithLove! Stay tuned tomorrow for another Sensational Shop!
