Introduction

I am so excited to start blogging about crochet! I never get to talk about it to folks around me. When I start I always get the standard eyes glaze over

I am so excited to start blogging about crochet! I never get to talk about it to folks around me. When I start I always get the standard eyes glaze over with the occasional courtesy "uh huh" or "ok" or "yeah" lol. I know there are ALOT of crochet blogs out there as well. I do hope you find mine a little entertaining to keep the glaze over out of your eyes ha!
Crocheting for me is such a relaxing get away from the world and I am so lucky to have a husband that fully supports my hobby :)

As I was making various items and reading patterns, that is when my creativity sparked! I do some graphic design and computer programming as my ‘real’ job, so being creative kind of is my job. Writing patterns is something that I really enjoy and just seeing something that I have thought about come together and to be able to share it with others is amazing! Thus came Yarntivity. Being creative with yarn is something we should do every day. 

I am a married mom with an amazing family. My husband and I have been together since 1994 and every year gets better and better! 

Crochet for me is a vacation. It is so relaxing and I absolutely love creating all these different items for everyone! I have so many pattern ideas in my head and projects that I have lined up to do, there isn’t enough time in the world! ha ha

We live on a single income and are raising our teenage daughter. I work full-time supporting my family and crochet/design in the evenings and weekends. My husband has Multiple Sclerosis
(diagnosed in 2005) and he cannot work. I never realized I got a lifetime pass to Six Flags because it sure is a roller coaster of a ride. We have good days and we have bad days but we take them all in stride :) To add to our luck, I also have Crohn’s Disease (recently diagnosed 2014) so someone up there is having alot of fun with our family and has a sick sense of humor!! I have had stomach issues for 20+ years and they just recently figured it out. I am hoping my crochet will help supplement our income a little and loosen the choke hold but again, I don’t want to get my hopes up.

I plan on posting my patterns to my blog along with tips, crochet news I may come across, various neat things I may find, and anything else crochet related that could come up! 
I absolutely love seeing and hearing about projects people have done with my designs :) I am always open for communication so please feel free to contact me via email, facebook, Etsy shop, Ravelry, Craftsy, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest (my gosh I am all over LOL) or however you like.

If you got to this point reading about me…wow!! Thank you for your interest :) I absolutely adore crochet and everything that goes with it :) Thank you for visiting!
