I gladly take custom orders and offer free shipping on all orders placed in the U.S. I really enjoy creating these beautiful embellishments and love seeing them make your projects just a bit more special. Please visit my shop at

I must admit that I personally ordered a whole bunch of Leah's Crochet Flowers and now I see she has Crochet Butterflies...oh my....gotta get some of those to.....
