about

welcome to the cozy tangerine! 

Hey, I'm Jocelyn!

A little bit about me:

  • 24 year old living in MA
  • There are likely 239874 thoughts going on my brain at one time
  • I wake up every day with the urge to crochet
  • Surprise me with food and I'm your friend forever

In May of 2020, I graduated in the midst of the pandemic - with no job prospects. I had been crocheting for a few years, and after a good while of figuring out what the heck I wanted to do, I opened up The Cozy Tangerine.

The Cozy Tangerine specializes in crochet clothing, accessories, home decor, and more. We're currently based in Norton, MA!

Did you know that crochet can't be done by a machine, unlike knitting?

So that means that every single crochet piece you see in our shop is completely handmade by me. And just me. 

The Cozy Tangerine is a one-woman business - so from creating the physical pieces that you'll receive in the mail to writing emails and designing the website and packaging orders - it's all done by me! (Which is why I giggle sometimes when I use the word "we" because you and I both know, it's just me). It's a lot of work, but I'm passionate about what I do, and I wouldn't change it for the world. (If you wanna make my day, buy me a coffee! I'll love you forever).

In 2022, I began offering other pieces created by fellow small business owners in my shop, like these air fresheners! I would love to continue supporting other small businesses, so if you would like to feature your products in my shop, please fill out this contact form!

Now I dedicate 90% of my time to growing my business.

I grew up in Mansfield, and now I work out of my "office space" aka my bedroom doubling as a workspace in Norton, MA. That's where I get all of your orders made, packaged, and ready to go to their forever homes!

I've always been crafty, and now it truly makes me so incredibly happy to be able to create fun things for you all. I wasn't sure how The Cozy Tangerine would do - but now we've fulfilled over 600 orders (in addition to attending local markets and fairs!)

I'm so happy you're here and I want to thank you for choosing to support The Cozy Tangerine. Seriously, your support means the entire world to me.

Some fun (or weird?) facts:

  • I danced for 10+ years and have never broken a bone
  • I've been to Lebanon, Italy, Mexico, and St. Martin - but I've never even traveled to the U.S. west coast
  • I've been vegan for 4+ years
  • One of my legs is slightly longer than the other which gives me really bad knee pain 
  • I cannot *just* watch TV or a movie - I have to be doing something else, like crocheting (or coloring, doing a puzzle, etc). 
  • My all-time favorite meal is buffalo chik'n mac n cheese (vegan, of course) - but give me anything made with pasta, and I'll eat it
