About Me

I am a wife to my amazing and hardworking husband, Matthew, and mom of two beautiful children, one girl (Rebekah) and one boy (Thomas). Being able to give them extras is what started me back on my crochet journey which led me to releasing original designs in March of 2014. I live in Oklahoma and work a full time job beside my crochet which is a job even though for me it doesn't usually feel like one!

I taught myself to crochet at 12 years old and have been crocheting ever since. One of my favorite activities as a kid was watching Memaw (my grandmother) crochet. I was fascinated by the beautiful items that she made. Her specialty was afghans but my family also still has items that her mother made. My dad says he remembers his grandmother would work without patterns. I wish I knew whether she just had made the items so much she knew the pattern or if she was creating her own. I like to think that I get my creative abilities from her.

My favorite hooks are my Clover Amour hooks and my bubble hooks from Sick 'Lil Monkeys. Before finding the Clover hooks, I was a Bates "hooker" through and through.

If there are other things that you want to know about me, feel free to ask! I will either add them here or respond.

I am always available to answer questions and to help if needed. Contact me on Facebook, Google+, Ravelry, or even by email at creativethreads.lf@gmail.com.
