This blog is for anyone who always wanted to learn to crochet but was afraid to try. For anyone who wanted to learn to make jewelry but had no one to teach her. For anyone who loves to wander the aisles of the local craft store but never buys anything because “I don’t know how to make that.” Buy yourself some yarn and get busy! There are resources out there with instructions for any hobby, and in this blog, I will hold your hand while you learn something new. On these pages you will find stories of how I taught myself my favorite hobbies—beadwork and crochet, easy projects to get you started, as well as videos and instructions.
