Too Many Ideas, Not Enough Time!

Hi and Welcome to my shop!

I have been surrounded by crafts my entire life. My mom, all my aunts and my grandmother are all involved in some form of crafting, so for as long as I can remember I have been surrounded by crafts. I still do a little of everything but my focus over the last 16 years has been on knitting and crocheting.

It wasn't until I had my son that I started making my own patterns. I found that there weren't a lot of toy patterns for little boys, so I started creating my own. For the last couple of years my "patterns" only consisted of abbreviated scribbles in notebooks, so the process of typing them up has taken me longer than I expected.

My patterns start with and idea, (I get inspiration for projects from everywhere: stores, magazines, books and even my kids doodles). I draw the idea out and start working the stitch pattern out in my head. I then sit down and start to crochet, with a notebook close by to scribble the stitches down. Once I have the pattern worked out to my satisfaction, I type the pattern out and take the all the pictures. I edit and review the pictures and pattern then send it to my pattern tester for a final review. The entire process to complete a pattern takes approximately 20-30 hours.

My biggest problem is that I have too many ideas and not enough time to create them all! I have multiple notebooks with ideas and drawing of the many things I would like to make and one day I hope to get to them all.

Now that I have 4 little ones, I feel that I have more ideas then time to create them! I just keep reminding myself to take it one pattern at a time. I hope that you find the patterns easy to use and that you have as much fun making the items as I did creating them. ☺
