JoyceIsCrafty - Crochet Portraits Pattern Shop

Indianapolis, Indiana

Announcement    I've been crafting since 1972, when my best friend taught me to crochet during recess. Since then I've completed 1000's of projects and expanded to other crafts. I've tried knitting, sewing, quilting, polymer clay, beading, jewelry making, and painting. Carpal tunnel, arthritis, and tendonitis in both elbows slowed me down a little bit, but I still feel the need to create.

Taking pictures, especially of my pets, brings me enjoyment. So does finding new ways to look at those pictures through various programs on my computer and phone. Turning those pictures into crocheted portraits has gotten a lot of questions of HOW? so I decided to share my knowledge with others.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my creations and read my bio.

I'm a mom, wife, animal lover, crafter, entrepreneur, and former flight attendant.

I've been crafting since 1972, when my best friend taught me to crochet during recess. Since then I've completed 1000's of projects and expanded to other crafts.

Taking pictures, especially of my pets, brings me enjoyment. So does finding new ways to look at those pictures through various programs on my computer and phone. Turning those pictures into tshirts for myself and gifts for my family led me to share my creations here. Many of my creations are also of paintings that I did myself.

Being a creative entrepreneur allows me to spend time with my aging mother and I am very grateful for that. I'm also fostering her dog, a black lab named Sam.

I adopted my little dog, Elliot, who is a rescued Chihuahua. My grand-Beagle, Copper, is also a rescue dog.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my creations and read my bio.
