About

I started my shop to pass on my love for crochet.

A few years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Chronic fatique, I was already teaching three kids as a SAHM. This was not something I was ready to deal with. As months went by I realized that some things that I enjoyed to do was never going to be possible again. So, instead of just quitting and letting my imagination stall; the Lord send a close friend to me and she passed on her wonderful talent of crochet to me.
That is when this shop was born.
When I hurt; I crochet. When I am tired; I crochet. When I need a break from teaching; I crochet. I started making creations that make me happy and now I sell them here. I also started a blog at www.123imaginationalive.com and joined other social media outlets to share my creations with folks.
I have created You Tube videos too. They teach kids to crochet and I write PDF digital patterns too. I offer a lot of them for free on my blog.
In conclusion: If it was not for the FM and CF affecting my life in the way that has; I would not be able to share my creations with you!

Just a little nugget: My Granny, Lord rest her soul. Gave me an old vintage chair years ago and that is what I sit in when I create. It makes me feel like she is in a little part of each stitch that goes into my products. I miss you and love you, Granny.

I am blessed!
The women in Proverbs 31...She seeketh wool, and flax, and worketh willingly with her hands. She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night. She maketh herself coverings of tapestry; her clothing is silk and purple. She maketh fine linen, and selleth it; and delivereth girdles unto the merchant.
