It Was My Birthday


My birthday is April 13th, an Aries through and through. I shared a discount on all of my books throughout the month which has now come to an end, a way of giving a birthday gift from me to you. And I shared A Creative Post On My Birthday About The People Who Created Me, spending the day thinking about my parents and all I’ve gotten from them that isn’t material.

Spring Cleaning: Organize!!

I wrote a series of posts this month for the Craftsy spring cleaning project, helping crafters to organize and declutter their crafty spaces. I write a lot about this in Hook to Heal and consider it an important part of the process of crocheting for wellness so I was happy to be able to do some more writing on this for Craftsy!
