When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.



I recently made a realization about some issues that have been plaguing me my whole life. I realized that I have been forced to compete for every last little thing that I have including attention. Now in the perfect world a child would never have to compete for love and attention, but this is not a perfect world. These issues have been causing me major problems my whole life, and finally at 45 years old, I have been able to identify them. Over this last week, I stayed aware of this competitive issue, and I found that now that I am aware of it, it is no longer affecting me anymore. Now every-time the competition for attention comes up, I now react with I’m not going to play that game instead of getting angry, like I use to. this realization has been so liberating, and I have been, so much happier at the same time. Before this realization, I didn’t think that happiness in my life would ever be possible, but thankfully, I was wrong!

More about me

I make unique usable art! I currently have my art (bags) in Germany, Canada, and 4 Western US States. I learned to crochet by the time I was 3 years old, and by the time I was 5, I could also Sew, Cross-stitch, Knit (Not fond of it), draw, and work on cars (I know not really related, but I wanted to show my diversity.) By the age of 10 I was Designing houses (inside and out), and Designing Clothes. From there I’ve learned a multitude of different crafts from Embroidery, to Bead work, Patch work corduroy backpacks, and wood working. I have made quite a variety of different and Beautiful crafts in my 45 years. I would just love to share my beauty with the world.

I started making my crocheted bags for myself out of necessity, and everyone started to ask me where I got my Beautiful bag. At that point I started making bags for others; I have even made special custom order bags. Just give me measurements of what you want to carry, and I can make the perfect bag for you. I have made a variety of different styles, and sizes of bags. I even made one that I had to crochet an eye glass case into, along with crochet flowers (sunflowers, daisies, and roses.) My talents do not stop there, but I had to start somewhere. I hope that you enjoy my work as much as I’ve enjoyed making it for you.

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope to see you again soon.
