I began crocheting as a squirmy 9 year old--taught by granny. My first project was a scratchy, VERY long scarf for my dad. Seems I didn't know how to stop--something my teachers in school told me often. But I did stop crocheting for many years while I got distracted with running, teaching High School science, marrying my sweetie and having 3 little kiddos.
But then inspired by some lovely crochet blogs, I picked up my hook and began hooking again. I was smitten--as it quieted my "noisy" brain and allowed me to make beautiful yarny things.
This whole designing adventure began when I opened my Felted Button Etsy shop to sell off some of the growing collection of crocheted items I had made. (Friends and family only want so many, right?) And I realized that my Technical Writing class at BYU was not such a waste of time as I started writing down the projects I made up.
I collect colorful glass, colorful yarn, colorful buttons, and colorful shoes! And when I'm not crocheting, I enjoy time with my family, thrifting, running and gardening.
You can listen to an interview I had on A Little Brighter Podcast here, if you want to know a bit more about me and my wonderful world of crochet!
