About Me

“If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants.”

– Isaac Newton


I’m Holly and I started my little business, Storyland Amis in 2015! I’ve always loved designing things even before I knew how to crochet. I used to draw all the time or design knitted dishcloth patterns. Then my sister taught me how to crochet in 2012 and fell in love with it right away! I’ve been designing my own amigurumis almost since the beginning!

My passion is crocheting amigurumi, or ami for short, which is the Japanese art of crocheted or knitted stuffed animals. There are so many possibilities when you have a hook and some yarn! I never get tired of coming up with new designs and often lie awake at night dreaming up some new plushie.

Just last year, through the influence and encouragement of some sweet friends, I decided to start selling my patterns as well as my finished amis and I couldn’t be happier with that decision! It’s blessed me in so many ways!

I hope to inspire others to pursue their talents and dreams through this blog because I believe that whatever we do, we can do it to God’s glory. “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” – 1 Cor. 10:31

I have a weakness for the 1940’s, the color pink, Captain America, noodles with soy sauce, watching “I Love Lucy”, and pretty dresses. I also love to sing!

Thanks so much for stopping by! I always love to hear from you, so feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if you just want to say “hi”! :) You can email me at storylandamis[at]gmail[dot]com. I always try to respond to everyone who writes me, so don’t be shy!
