Hey, everyone! I’m Jessica, the founder behind The Hook Nook, and I REALLY like to make pretty things. For the last several years I’ve gone from teaching myself to crochet, to selling my makes to friends and family, to opening an Etsy shop, to pattern designing and now I am so fortunate to have worked with some of the biggest brands and companies in the fiber industry from all around the world. You can now find my own The Hook Nook brand designer crochet hooks, yarn and craft accessories at in my online shop and at various retailers!

Maker Pins with Honey and the Hive!


Have you guys seen the huge influx of enamel pins being shared on social media nowadays?! My goodness!! So many exciting and fun ways to express your Maker love with the world around you! In case you are unaware, back a few months ago, I hosted two super fun curated gift box options which I called VIP and Maker. The VIP box was filled with items I genuinely love and the Maker box was filled with contribute items from Makers from around the world! Both boxes (100 boxes in total) sold out within 24 hours, it BLEW MY MIND! One of the items in my VIP box was this “Proud Hooker” pin that I had collaboratively designed with Kelsey from Honey and the Hive

Many of you wanted to be able to get your hands on these pins without having to buy the full VIP box, and now is your chance! In addition to these pins, I’ve worked with Kelsey on a second design that can apply to Makers from all areas of the craft world! This second design says “Makers Gonna Make” and features a super cute knit-design heart with sewing pins and thread spool. I am so excited about it!! 

Being able to collaborate with Makers makes me all kinds of happy and fulfilled. Working with others not only builds me up, but also inspires me and being able to share and promote other Makers hustling their butt off with quality work is what it’s all about! 

I am so excited to announce that BOTH of these custom-designed pins are available NOW over in my Etsy shop and only until they sell out! Be sure to head over there and snag them quick! You can use these pins on your WIP (work-in-progress) bags, jean jackets, purse, and so many more places! Trade them with your friends, offer them as gifts.. I mean, who DOESN’T want a Maker-themed pin?! 

Once this batch sells, we will be opening up a preorder for these two designs as well as a third, super secret, design. Oooooh!! Stay tuned to see what it will look like! 

Thank you SO much to Kelsey for going above and beyond for both collabs and really making me feel special throughout the entire design process. Please take a moment to head over to her Instagram as well as her website, Etsy shop and Facebook page to check out more of her work. Kelsey is a beautiful and amazing artist who builds up those around her and really makes me proud to be in her community!
