There is very little that makes me happier in life than to make something for someone and see them use it or enjoy it. I craft and bake because I love doing those things and sharing them with the people I love.
I get inspiration from so many places. Some favorites:
Lion Brand Yarn crochet patterns
All the talented artisans on etsy.com
The wide, wonderful word of Pinterest
Other things I love that may or may not be reflected in my projects: sports of all kinds, especially softball and baseball; books of all kinds, especially classics, historical fiction, and thoughts on faith; organizing; writing and editing; social justice; lifelong learning.
“I used to be afraid of failing at the things that really mattered to me, but now I’m more afraid of succeeding at things that don’t matter.” – From “Love Does” by Bob Goff
