Welcome to Crafty Diva Cottage

I have crafted since I was eight years old. My mother taught me to crochet and do needlepoint and sew my own clothes. I learned to knit and make all kinds of crafts in girl scouts. My first craft enterprise was selling macrame hanging planters to my neighbors on my military base where I lived in Germany. My Dad would go to the PX on base purchase my yarn and twine. I crocheted and knitted on my two hour bus ride every day to school. In college I let go of crafting. I didn't began again until I got pregnant with my first child. I crocheted her baby blankets on the two hour bus ride to work at the Pentagon. After she was born no more crafting since I became a business owner with offices and employees in five states. When my second child was born 7 years later I felt the need to create with my hands. I began weaving baskets and finally felt like an artist and began participating in art shows. With my third child I began hand weaving and surface design. All of this lead to me beginning a new career as a expressive arts educator. I began teaching workshops and classes and opened up my cottage business. Here I am today as an entrepreneur, artist, teacher, certified Dream Coach and author. I hope you enjoy my whimsical, handmade, heartfelt creations.
