Promise Me…

Hello Friends! 'Promise me' is finished! My granddaughter, Jasmine, who just started 6th grade, is the proud recipient of this piece. It's hanging above her bed. Proud grandma moment.

What Knitting or Crocheting Can Teach Us

  As a designer, I spend many hour escaping into the Ravelry world, an amazing knitting and crocheting community (website) where people come and stay. For hours sometimes. I click through 10, 15, 100 versions of the same shawl pattern (or dishcloth, sock, scarf, hat pattern), looking intently at the yarns used, the projects created… Continue reading What Knitting or Crocheting Can Teach Us

My Biggest Organizational Tip

Ebook Release

Hey friends! As I begin to embark on this whole self-publishing journey (my publisher rolled up the sidewalk and closed the door), I'm quickly reminded of how not very tech-savvy I really am. I can definitely use and get around a computer, but when it comes to the nitty-gritty back end work of certain software,… Continue reading Ebook Release
