I'm a stay at home wife and mom to 7 children whom I homeschool. I love to crochet and it is my down time from the busyness of my life. If I could I would crochet all day but I don't think my family would like that. Four of our children have not left the nest yet but I really don't think my two year old is ready to find a job. I love working with yarn and I love writing patterns. I sell my patterns at www.yarnabees.etsy.com and I am so excited that my Giraffe Pattern will be a the 2012 CrochetMe Calendar!!
