1 How did you first get introduced to your craft?

My mother taught me to crochet when I was about 8 years old. I didn't really pick it up then and had to reteach myself as an adult. I did that sometime around 2006. I also taught myself to knit at the beginning of 2012.

2 What type of patterns do you enjoy designing the most?

I really couldn't choose. I love both knit and crochet equally, and I love changing the types of projects I'm doing to keep the craft interesting for myself.

3 What are you most known for?

I'm just starting out in my designing, so I'm not really known for anything yet. I do hope to change that over time. I don't want to just be known for my patterns, though. I would much rather be known for the way I treat my customers and followers of my designs. I really want to help others to create beautiful things they love and can be proud of.

4 How do you jump-start your creativity?

My 4 kids inspire most of my designs. Or if I see something with a really cool stitch pattern, it usually gets my thoughts flowing on what other projects would look good with it.

5 What season inspires you the most?

Probably fall and winter since those are the seasons most people like to wear knit and/or crochet garments.

6 On average, how many new patterns do you design each year?

I just started designing in October of 2013 and I had 10 designs in circulation by November. I hope to keep designing as many things that come to mind for long as God allows me to be inspired. I know the list I have right now seems endless. Now all I need is the time to get them all written up.

7 Is there another craft you'd like to try your hand at?

I've attempted quilting a few times over the years with not much success. I also love the look of scrapbooks, but can't seem to find what I need to put my own together.

8 What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday afternoon?

Sitting on the couch in the living room surrounded by my husband and kids with either a knitting needle or crochet hook in hand. It's even better when one of my girls wants to sit close by and stitch along with me.

9 What three items do you always have in your craft bag?

I'm always changing my craft bag around to fit whatever project I'm doing. I'd say I always have a notepad and pencil, my notions pouch (which holds my scissors, yarn needle, stitch holder, measuring tape, etc.), and hand lotion. I'd say the yarn and either hook or needles is a given, right?
