How did you get started in crafting? I learned to crochet from a book while I was in High School, but as a kid I was always crafting, creating or making something!

What is your work space like? Most of the time I crochet in the living room in the corner in my chair, but my yarn is kept in bins and a wardrobe upstairs in my bedroom.
Who or what inspires you in either life or in your business? My children inspire me a lot! We are always exploring new ideas and avenues together. I encourage them to strive to be the best they can be, and they inspire to me to do also.
What are your personal and/or business goals? Personally this year coming up is going to be a challenging year. Three of us will be attending the Community College, my youngest will graduate from High School and my Husband of 21 years will be retiring from the Army. We have been through the thick and thin of deployments over the years. Business wise I would love to see my shop reach 200 sales before the end of the year and to have a profitable new year!
