I am a stay at home mom who loves to crochet! I like to crochet jewelry, amigurumi, and often times try something out of my normal to keep it interesting!
I am also an artist, but haven't found time to draw in a long time since I had my daughter. She is almost 20 months old and we are planning on trying for another one this year!
I keep an online blog and am working on selling crochet items in my Etsy shop. I first started crocheting a year ago when I saw an amigurumi book by Ana Paula Rimoli. Since then I have been 'hooked' and love crocheting. My husband seems to think I have found my niche in life.
I finally got part of my office set up as a craft area. I stacked all 5 boxes of my yarn into a bookcase in color groups and am super happy with it! I even cheated and put a white cardboard box on the wall for a cubby.

My daughter Kira loves Elmo, Pocoyo, Totoro and anything of the Disney Princesses. She is 20 months old and full of energy.
She really likes animals too, especially dogs and cats. Crocheted play food is a new favorite of hers too, thanks Seacrow ;)
She also loves flash cards, children's books and stickers. Gotta love them stickers!
My husband Eric loves his Macbook Pro, so I'm sure he would love anything Macintosh themed (e.g. the apple, or even the apple key). He is also very nerdy (so am I, lol). His likes are video games, woodworking, sushi, tea, coffee (Starbucks pike place), anime (bleach and naruto at the moment), Blues music, and the band LIVE.
