About



When I’m not helping hubby run our photo business and helping clients, I crochet and loom knit! Plus, I make other crafts too!

Creating with Yarn is Fun.

I’m a Yarner! I love playing with it. There’s so much you can do even beyond crocheting and knitting. I so wish I could do this full time. That’s my dream job! I work from my home studio with my hubby enjoying the West Coast scene! I’m originally a Chi-town girl growing up on the south side of Chicago, it was not a happy upbringing because of our surroundings but my mother made the best of the situation. I finally moved out when I turned 25 and went to live in Atlanta, Georgia. I stayed there five years and after my first husband passed away, I moved to North Florida. I lived there for about 18 years.

I made a LOT of career changes until I realized my true love.

My career spanned from Word Processing to Network Administration and then Graphic Design. I enjoyed creating graphics but I longed to create with my hands. It wasn’t until two years ago moving with my 2nd hubby to Oregon that I got exposed to crocheting. I had learned it when I was 12 but only able to make one pattern: shawls. It was fine but I didn’t know how to read patterns or make anything else so I put down the crochet hooks for quite awhile. I began attending a woman’s crafting class at a local church and the bug really hit me. Since then, I can’t imagine a day going by without making something.

I’ve always admired knitting but was too scared to learn it.

Late this year, I picked up loom knitting. I fell in love with it and I’ve made hats, scarves, even bags with my trusty looms. I’ve always admired the way knitted items look and oftentimes I wished that I could use traditional needles as well as the loom. Well, I’m teaching myself on YouTube needle knitting and I've been knitting hats and scarves and loving the process.

Creating is therapeutic, fulfilling, and a whole LOT of fun!

I crave crocheting the way I crave sweets! I love having yarn and a crochet hook in my hand!

I also LOVE Fashion with Modesty.

I'm a big fan of the fashion years of the 30s - 50s when men and women wore hats and gloves! I enjoy dressing up and my secret hope is to see this long past trend come back in style.

 


My Better Half
Ken McDougal, my hubby

Ken is a hard working man as I always say. “He drives me to exceed my limitations and he encourages me to get out of my comfort zone. I love him for that!” Ken assists with the daily shop stuff and manages all the shipping and handling. Besides this role, he is a successful professional nature photographer and runs our photo business from our home studio. He has a permanent display at the local arts center, Florence Regional Arts Alliance, where he sells his photo prints from.

We both love the place The Lord has brought us in our life since moving from Florida. If you want to know more about our faith, you can read it about here.
