My username is arichards20 and my website is eyeloveknots.blogspot.com/
I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about 10 years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc.

I currently craft part time. This is my true passion, and I am working very hard with my blog and designs to be able to do this full time. Thanks so much for your support!

I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy.

If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
