Welcome to X&Y crafts!

Hi! My name is Citlalli and I want to welcome you to X&Y crafts, my little world where I get to share my love for card making & crochet!

A little bit about me, I live in Texas, with my amazing husband and my two beautiful daughters. I like to consider myself a crafty person who loves anything DIY, but I would say that my top 2 hobbies are crocheting and card making.

My card making adventure started back in 2011. My husband was away on deployment so I decided to make a scrapbook for us. I wanted to find a hobby that would not only keep me occupied, but would also allow me to preserve our memories. While looking for scrapbooking ideas, I came across a card making blog, and I immediately fell in love with card making!

I started crocheting in 2011 when I was pregnant with my first baby. I wanted to make her a blanket so I taught myself how to crochet by watching YouTube videos. A few years later, after my second baby was born, I decided to start making amigurumi (crochet toys). It took me a while to get it “right”, but I finally did it!

X&Y crafts started back in 2016 when I decided to start selling my handmade cards through Facebook. Fast forward a few years later, I now have an online store where you can purchase handmade cards and crochet items.

I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope you are able to find some inspiration for your next project! And remember if you see something you really like and would love to have, make sure you visit my online shop.

Have a great day!
