About Color Me Reckless
Color Me Reckless is my baby. I started this company as a way to expand and share what I was making with people. I wanted to turn my hobby into something that would pay for itself. Since then, it has grown into so much more than that. Today, it is something I'm immensely proud of - I've learned so much along the way! Color Me Reckless is run by me, Lisa, with some help from my wonderful husband.
My mother taught me to crochet when I was 8, using hooks and yarn found while cleaning out my great-grandmother's house. I didn't really pick it up again until college, when I learned that a hook and a ball of yarn were the perfect de-stressor for me. My roommate and I would emerge from finals week with beautiful new blankets!
I still make blankets today, now mostly for friends and family to commemorate an event. Now I prefer to make products that will be used by people everyday - in their kitchen, bathroom, or just around the house. I like the idea that crochet can help you to live a bit more eco-friendly around the home. Crochet can be functional and well as a beautiful craft, and my mission is to create simple, bright products that can be used over and over again.
All of our products are made with quality yarn and a simple design. Our goal is to bring color to your everyday products - to make items that sit at the crossroad where color meets functionality.
We design and make each item by hand. No two items are exactly the same! But we make sure each item meets a high quality standard, and new products are carefully tested before being put into the shop.
Everything from the design of the item to the labels to the packaging is done by hand.
Color Me Reckless is dedicated to giving back to our community. For each item purchased in a year, we donate $1 to a charity or organization of our choice that supports our local community.
