A little about me:
For as long as I can remember I have always been crafty and had a love of art, crafts, and creating. In 2011 I taught myself how to crochet and seemed to have unleashed a hidden talent I never knew I had. I quickly began designing my own pieces and writing my own patterns. I currently post all my crochet patterns and tutorials for free! I learned by following free patterns so I hope my patterns help and inspire you. Between, blogging, crafting, crocheting, and taking care of my kids, I don't have a lot of time to cook so I rely heavily on my Crock Pot. Keep your eye out for a new recipes each month!
I graduated from the University of Washington in 2001 with a degree in Visual Arts and began a career as a graphic designer. I worked professionally as a graphic designer for 6 years and still do occasional freelance work. In 2005 I took a chance at online dating and met the most amazing man. We married in 2008 and shortly after got pregnant with our first son! We then relocated from Seattle to Portland, OR and welcomed our second son and two years later, our baby girl Zoe. Because life likes to keep us on our toes, we most recently made the move from Portland to Orange County, CA for my husbands job. We are loving our new neighborhood and can't get enough of the beautiful California weather. The kids are now (almost) 6, 4, and 1.5 years old!
