Hi! I’m Ali Wholihan and I’m a wife, mother, and maker.
Who’s Homemade is a place for me to bring all my hobbies and passions to one place and to share my love of homemaking with you!
I was born and raised in Alberta, Canada and moved to Ohio in 2014 to live with my husband and step daughter. Up until we welcomed our baby girl in 2018, I was a stay at home wife just trying to make enough money to pay for my hobby. Now I am so lucky to be a stay at home mompreneur.
The Turtle Trunk
I learned to crochet in 2015 and quickly fell in love with it. I used YouTube as my teacher and started my crochet business The Turtle Trunk in 2016. I opened up an Etsy shop to sell my finished items, then later moved to designing and selling my own original patterns.
I started my YouTube channel to help teach others to crochet and to share free, beginner friendly patterns. I love teaching and I want everyone to know that they can crochet too and it’s really not as hard as it looks!
My goal when starting my business was to at least make enough money to support itself. I am lucky to have been able to do so and recently I have been wanting to expand and explore new avenues for my business.
Blogging is a venture I have been thinking about doing for about a year now! I love the idea of being able to share my ideas and creations on my own platform, in my own way. I have so many ideas, recipes, tips & tricks, and crochet patterns I want to share and this just seems like the perfect place to do it!
As a homemaker, business owner, crochet designer, and stay at home mom, Who’s Homemade is a place where I hope everyone can find something for them. I want this to be a place for you to learn something new and make something great! So grab your whisk, hook, or coffee and let’s get making!
