 Hi I'm Dana, I lived most of my life in Wyoming but have lived in Detroit for the last three years.I have been called a hippie for the past 30 years (I shave and am clean so I don't get it)  I never thought the things I was doing were craft till the whole reporpuse thing came into vougue. Silly me, I thought it was make the best of being broke. I made a Christmas tree out of tumble weeds one year when I couldn't buy one. I love crafts. If it is fun and dosen't cost the moon, I'm there. I am an old woman now and I want to leave my children and my grandchildren a love for crafting or at least a love for what it took to do it.

Hi! My name is Michelle. I've been doing crafts of some sort since I was a child. My Grandmother & Mother were always crochetting or knitting something, so I learned both of those by the time I was 12 years old........I like crochetting best.

My first grandchild will be born in June so I have been making as many hat & bootie sets as I can. I just recently started a baby blanket also.

I can't wait to dive into this group!

Happy Crafting everyone!

Hello Crafting Mommas! My name is Kristyn. I have been married for over 4 years. We have two boys together, 3 and 22 months. And, we have another boy due in less than for weeks.
About a year ago, I learned how to crochet from tutorials on YouTube. CrochetGeek and bobwilson123 are my favorites.
I am currently working on a slouchy beanie for dh, but I have made a scarf for myself and a couple of baby cocoons for newborn.
There will definitely be more projects to come! Can't wait to share with everyone! Thanks for having me!

Hi, I'm Carolyne in TX, a Christian conservative 'older mom' (51) due to infertility issues...if there's a craft or hobby I've probably tried it! I love ALL of them, especially sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting--plus painting, drawing, stamping, scrapbooking, card making, etc. My dream is to someday have an online store on eBay or etsy as well. I have three miracle children, "Tweenie"(12) and boy/girl twins(4), who really keep me hopping, LOL. I also have a couple of blogs and I love to Facebook and Twitter with family and friends. Work in progress in setting up my Hobby Room but that always comes last on priorities! I'll finish soon though so I can work on whatever projects come my way! Glad to join this group! 😃

Hey ladies! I'm Kristen, and new to the crafting world. I have always wanted to pick up crocheting and I finally did back in November. It has quickly become my favorite past time, I just wish I had more time!! I would love to try my hand at other things too, but I want to "master" crocheting first lol. I also bake, that can be considered a craft right? ;)

Hello ladies my name is Emily I'm 30 years old and a sahm and I live in Toledo Ohio. I've been with my dh for over ten years married for five this June:). We have a beautiful daughter named Mallory and she just turned two this month. We are currently expecting our second child due this July.


I guess I've always loved crafting although I was just never very good at it. I guess I needed something that I was really obsessed with -hair bows-!!!!!! The min I found out I was having a girl I started collecting hair accessories of all sorts. Finally I realized "hey I can make these myself" turned out I'm pretty good at making them:).



I'm still in the learning process but eventually I would like to open a store on etsy.



Nice to meet you ladies:)
