Meet BonnieLassBoutique!

Welcome to Bonnie Lass Boutique!
My name is Tara and I am a married 26yr old mother of two.
I put forth a great amount of time and effort creating quality products...that not only I would wear but also my children, family and friends...I would not ship a product to a customer that I didn't first find acceptable to someone I know personally :)

All items are made in my smoke free and pet free home.
Thank you for visiting my shop!
Have a wonderful day!

And here's a few of my favorite items from her shop!

In my spare time I enjoy reading, watching movies, and doing all sorts of crafts.

Meet Team Member WeeKnit!!

Wee Knit is a mother-daughter team that makes the cutest little finger puppets! In our Cafemom Group, we love trying to guess who their new sets are!

Here's their bio:

WeeKnit consists of me (Jenny) and my mom (Tracy). We have been creating our knit creations in the picturesque mountains of Pleasant View, Utah since 1981.

In order to introduce you to WeeKnit, really I need to introduce you to my mom, Tracy. Tracy is the mastermind behind WeeKnit. We call her the chief “knit”wit. She is the designer and creator of the wonderful creations you’ll find here at WeeKnit. And while she would blush and deny my claim, she is indeed one of the most creative and hardest-working people I know.

For decades, she has been transforming the people, animals, and characters that children love into adorable finger puppets. What originally started out as a few neighborhood boutiques quickly evolved into a full-fledge business. And without looking back, she has been knitting ever since.

So please feel comfortable when you purchase from WeeKnit because we believe you are getting the best of both worlds. We are a business that prides itself on being professional and dependable. Yet we haven’t forgotten that much of our appeal is that we are the “small guy” producing quality handmade products. So please take a moment and look around our fun and imaginative world of knit creations.

Meet HookedKeepsakes!


I am a mother of 2 kids. My son is mentally ill and has seizures. We have to go out of town for his specialists ( neurological and his eye specialist). I can not work because of his medical needs. I also have a daughter and she is healthy.

I decided that since I crochet every "spare" moment that I have, that I might as well sell some of my goodies to make some extra money to use when we have to go on those out of town doctor visits. Even though we do stay at the Ronald McDonald house when we need to, and it is free, we still like to try to donate some money to them for " taking care of us" when we need them. So all the sales that I make will go toward the trip and anything we need for the doctors.

I like to think that crocheting is what has got me through my son's 2 major brain surgeries (before he was 4 years old) and all of the doctors I have had to take him to.

All my items are made in my smoke free/pet free home!

You can find me on face book by searching Hooked KeepSakes

Some of my favorite items are this adorable Owl Hat (pattern was made by another team member, CrazySocksCrochet)And this cute donut pincushion!
