Laura's Profile

About

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.

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, homeschooling, crocheting, health conscious Super Mom to two wonderful (most of the time) children.

I think one of the best things about being a crafty-type person is that someone out there can tell someone else that the scarf they are wearing was handmade. Or that Grandma made this sweater just for me. Or my sister made this purse for me for my birthday…

RELAY FOR LIFE
A passion of mine is Relay For Life. My dad passed away from lung cancer, and I wanted to participate as a tribute to him. I had no idea how much it would affect me. Now I have another reason to Relay. My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013, had surgery, chemo, and radiation, and has been cancer free for almost 4 years. I started making Cancer Awareness Rosette Pins as a fundraiser for our Relay team, and I have since added Cancer Awareness Reusable Coffee Sleeves. It's been not only an emotional journey, but a fulfilling one. Thank you for supporting my Relay For Life team.
