Hello, and welcome to my home!

Hello friends, and welcome to the blog home of Ministry of Tiny Hats!

Though some of you may know, my name is Amy and I am a writer/mini milliner (and more frequently, but less excitingly, office manager) living in Atlanta, GA. I decided to take my passion for tiny millinery to the masses and out came the Ministry of Tiny Hats, a self-start business for my homemade hats.

Since putting a name to my silly passion (which is, in fact, a reference to Monty Python's "Ministry of Silly Walks," in case anyone was wondering!), I have participated in both the Summer and Winter 2008 Indie Craft Experience festivals, created an Etsy store and been featured on pecanne log. Most recently, I was ever-so-graciously bestowed the honor of being featured in Atlanta Magazine! In fact, their little write-up was far more informative and spot-on than anything I could have put together (despite my journalistic background; it's hard to write about yourself!). I blush just thinking about it:

To make a short story long, I've tried to blog in so many forms over the years and have never been able to keep up with it for one reason or another. Save my writing, which has taken a backseat as of late, nothing has ever really maintained my attention and interest as thoroughly as this tiny hat venture. As such, I thought it would be fun to share that journey with all of you.

So please, if you're interested in the future of tiny hat-making, or just want to hear more of the good word, join the Ministry! i.e. Add me to your favorites!

Expect lots more posts to come, including news and pictures of my newest project, tiny Valentine's Day cupcake hats!
