After my MiMi passed, we all wanted one of her hand-crocheted afghans. With few to pass around, I was enthralled by the value of these afghans. You can't go to a store and buy an afghan made by someone you've met! Coming from an art background, I've also always adored any art piece that served a function. I decided to pick up a crochet hook and some yarn for fun, and I haven't been able to put it down since! I adore crocheting and do it as often as I can.
BACKGROUND: Grew up in the cornfields of Illinois until fate led me to beautiful California! Studying at the Art Institute of California, San Diego, I earned my BofS in Graphic Design, then after college I worked for an accessories company (handbags, backpacks, headwear, headphones, etc.) where I grew to be the Director of Product for 15 big-name brands. I became a miserable workaholic haha. 5 years ago my husband and I moved up to Santa Cruz, CA where we sort of switched roles: I became a freelancer working from home, while he pursues his career at a large company. I rediscovered my love (now turned obsession) of crochet and can't put the hook and yarn down! The pieces I've created have now piled up to the point where I may as well try selling them!
Really hope you enjoy my creations... and they brighten up your world like they have mine 🙂
