3. Besides craft, what are you passionate about?

Spending time with my husband and our 2 kids, camping, the ocean, drawing, occasional cooking, baseball, highway driving, music, and I also really love silence.

I have a countless number of nicknames, but the one that has stuck the most over the years is “bigdoonie”, which also happens to be the name of personal IG account.Crochet rainbow

5. Tell us why you love @craftastherapy

It’s such a wonderful community filled with positivity, support, and endless inspiration.

6.  What’s next on your ‘to make’ list?

I’ve been wanting to make a massive wall hanging for awhile now, I’d love to cross that off my list eventually.

7. What are your dreams for the future.

I’m finding myself becoming increasingly interested in gardening. I have zero skills at the moment, but I hope to one day have a big beautiful garden full of colorful flowers.
8. Tell us something random that we wouldn’t  know about you?

I can’t remember the last time I read a book.
