The beginning
After our first child was born, I decided to pick up a hobby since I was not used to being home all the time. I’d bookmarked many knitting and crocheting patterns in case I ever wanted to learn. I started first with knitting and made a few baby blankets for my sisters-in-law. It wasn’t too difficult to learn, but is very frustrating have to fix my errors.

My mother was a crocheter when I was little, so I was given her supplies at some time. I then decided to try my hand at crochet in early 2013. I first tried hats, then blankets and potholders. But it wasn’t until I picked up my own thread hook and some vintage thread from Goodwill that I found my favorite thing to make: doilies. My first doily was Pineapple Medley. It was not the best to attempt first because each point is worked individually. My second doily was Resplandor, which I made for a crochet contest. I was very hooked by this point.

I remember trying to sell my doilies--I was making so many of them! But they are difficult for others to appreciate. Many handmade items are not given the same amount of appreciation as other forms of art. So I told my husband that I would never be successful with crochet unless I started designing, which I never thought I would!

I designed my first doily in late 2014. Besides the fact that I somehow ended up with 9 points instead of 8 that I had originally intended, I was in love with it. It’s still near and dear to my heart.


Getting serious
After I started designing regularly in June of 2016, it was suggested to me to bring in a team of testers. Like a lot of people, I was very nervous about this. I don’t like being scrutinized and receiving criticism (even constructive!) made me anxious. However, this has been the best decision I have ever made in regard to my designing endeavor. My team is dedicated, thoughtful, bold, and I would not trade them for anyone else. Additionally, it has grounded me and also strengthened my spirit to receive criticism as a form of personal and professional growth.

Bringing in translators for my patterns was something I also wanted to do to get ahead of pattern piracy. I believe providing people with numerous ways to legitimately obtain your work is the best thing you can do to prevent most theft.
