Hey Friend, Brianna here!

You’ve landed on my about page, so I’ll tell you a bit about me! I’m married to my best friend, corny I know, and we have a handsome little man. I am a total “type a” personality, but not at the same time… if that makes any sense. I love anything creative, I am a maker through and through.

At a very young age I was taught to crochet by my Grandma. I picked a crochet hook back up when I started college and then put it down again. Years went by and all I did was single crochet, I learned how to make a granny square. Basic. Fast forward years later, my husband and I found out we were going to have a baby! I started making a baby blanket for my little poppy seed. I’m now obsessed with learning new stitches, and working on patterns.

Starting a blog crossed my mind while I was pregnant because I wanted to share my experiences with others. Which is odd for me. I suddenly felt like I had entered this new chapter in my life that was so important for me to document. Scared of sharing all of those emotions I instead scribbled them all down in a sketch book.

I work from home designing houses which has become much harder to do. Crochet is more baby friendly, it is much easier to pick up and put down a crochet project. To be honest, I love it more and I am more seriously persuing it as a business. This maker community is so amazing compared to my professional field of work which is filled with demanding clients, deadlines and late night board meetings. Funny how before motherhood I thrived off of that lifestyle. Now? Not so much!

I hope you enjoy reading and much as I love sharing all of life’s wonderful experiences one stitch at a time! Stay tuned for posts on life in general and my crochet journey.

Best,  Brianna.
