About

Hi, my name is Marianne and you might wonder why "daisyadaycrochet"? Well, it just so happens that I am married to a most wonderful man named John for 38 years. He knew that I loved daisies, so while we were dating, he always brought me 7 fresh daisies every week...one for each day. Now, I do not believe in coincidences, so I was amazed and excited when a new song was played on the radio: "Daisy A Day"! This, along with so much more, affirmed that I had found my soul-mate!! We married in August of 1975 with Daisies everywhere:0)

We have been blessed with 2, now grown married sons, BJ and Bridgett, along with Brian and Shelby. I finally have daughters, even though they are by other mothers :0)

The highlight of my life is being a grammy to 3 wonderful little boys, K age 9, N age 7, and B age 5. They can brighten even the darkest of days! Now…

We also share our love with Myshka! She is a Standard Poodle and does a great job showing her affection and love. She also make me laugh because I don't believe she knows she is a dos :0)

I have always been crafting in one way or another: painting t-shirts, making banners for church, teaching and participating in liturgical dance, BUT I learned to crochet when I was 9 years old. Since then, crocheting has become my passion!
Crocheting is the most comforting and soothing form of activity I know. I start with a chain, have something in mind and before I know it, something wonderful happens. It's as if something/one takes over. Suddenly, what I had in mind when I started, takes on a life of it’s own and a new creation is born. I started this shop to share my creative gifts so that I can feel productive after retiring from a career in nursing for >30 years.

I love the fact that my grandsons are eager to learn to crochet and I love sitting and watching their little hands work with the yarn and hooks as their faces reflect their concentration and determination in learning this craft with their grammy :0)

My joy in creating crochet items can only be increased by your delight in purchasing and wearing or using them for gifts :0)

In addition to my love for daisies, the dolphin is also my inspiration, my totem/muse. According to what I read in Native American Animal Totems, the dolphin is a brilliant animal who reminds us to take the time to breathe thoughtfully and purposefully and to be playful and creative. I guess that's why I rarely follow a pattern without adding some new touches to it. Whatever I am doing, a part of me always becomes a part of the creation and to me it creates an aura and a life of it's own.

I believe that "Life is God's gift to you; what you do with it, is your gift to God." I also believe that one must "Start by doing what is necessary, then do what is possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible."

I am a member of the Greatest Crochet Team known as CreateCrochet Team. We may be an etsy team, but we are more like family. We are from all over the world and it is so exciting to share ideas, stories, joys, hardships, comfort and encouragement for each other.
