Marianne blogs at maRRose CCC (Colorful Crochet and Crafts) where she shares her work, including crochet tutorials. She writes there:

“I have always liked being creative, from when I was a child. Coloring, drawing, making puppets, using the shells I found on the beach to decorate boxes, anything crafty – I loved it.

My first piece of crochet was a poncho, in pink, green and white and I was 9 years old when I finished that. I clearly remember feeling ever so proud when I could finally wear it, although ponchos had gone out of fashion already by that time!

After my professional career as a management assistant, I have revived my long lost creative side and have actually discovered that this is where my true passion lies …… Never too old to find out, right? Quilting, knitting, crafting in general, but mainly crochet. Ever since I picked up my hook again back in 2010 I’ve been doing so with great pleasure and joy.”

Marianne has filled her own home with her crochet work and gifted much to others plus she has an Etsy shop where some of her beautiful items are for sale, where she adds:

“According to my husband I have been crocheting the past couple of years with a vengeance! I surely hope my bright and vibrantly colored products will bring you as much joy and pleasure as they’ve brought me while making them! Every product that you’ll find in my shop is carefully handmade and with lots of love!”
