My name is Laura, and I have been crocheting for most of life; my mom taught me when I was about 8 years old. I love making up my own patterns. It is so rewarding seeing your vision come to life. My inspiration comes mostly from my children. My daughter will often tell me she wants something, and now I have a new project. Recently, I started making items to decorate my house.
I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area and currently live in Oxnard, just south of Santa Barbara. I am a stay at home mom to two wonderful (most of the time) children. My daughter is my model for the dresses I make. She also tries out every baby blanket (it's good to have the kid stamp of approval). Now that I also have a little boy, I hope to get some items geared more toward boys in my shop.
I think one of the best things about being a crafty-type person is that someone out...
