Sensational Shop Saturday - Unique Creations by Tracy

31 Days of Sensational Shops went so well that Sensational Shop Saturday was created to continue to feature awesome handmade shops!

Today's Sensational Shop is Unique Creations by Tracy - run by Tracy McDermott!



Tell us about you - the creator!

I am a former teacher but now a stay at home mom of a 5 and 6 year old. Crafting has been in my blood since I was a child. Both of my grandmothers, and mother were very crafty and their love of crafts rubbed off on me. I love to do a wide variety of crafts that I can use to decorate my house, and my kids love helping too. Besides crafting, my other passion is reading. You can always find a book in my hands before I fall asleep. Love history, young adult, mystery, romance, and more.

Describe your shop and what you sell

In my shop you can find a variety of crocheted items. I crochet owls, hats, loveys, and stuffed animals. Most of my items are custom made because I want each piece to be individualized to what the person receiving it likes. My favorite item to make is my owls! I love owls, so I enjoy making them! They also come in multiple sizes which makes each one more fun because there are so many color options or combination of colors I can make them in.




What is your favorite item to make? Why?

How and when did you start your business?

January of 2012 I decided to make one of my new year resolutions to learn how to crochet. In February I started using videos I found on YouTube and taught myself. By March my friends and family saw what I was making and asked if I could make them the same things. After the interest a fellow crafter friend recommended I open up a store. In April of 2012 I officially opened my store Unique Creations by Tracy on Storenvy!

Anything else you would like to add?

I am always looking for new ideas of things to make so I take custom crochet orders too. If there is something you want made that you don't see in my shop I will make it.




Where can buyers find you?
