Crafting for a Cause: Special Olympics

Special Olympics Texas Scarf

I started knitting about 3 years ago and crocheting 2 years ago. I had no idea it would happen, but knitting and crocheting has become a part of my everyday life. I carry yarn and hooks/needles everywhere I go. Seriously… everywhere.

Hello World.

Howdy! My name is Heather and I have a tendency to get into anything creative. I am a graphic designer by day and a crafter by night. So far I have tried my hand at photography, painting, furniture building and upcycling, knitting, crocheting, card making, and polymer clay modeling… among other things.
