As far back as I can remember, I've been writing and crafting. My mom encouraged my creativity, teaching me crochet, embroidery, sewing, photography and much more. In addition to crochet and pattern design, I'm a tax preparer, tutor, editor, wife and mom to two boys (10 & 7) and a girl (4). I'm a UT alum, with a lit degree, but, ironically, rarely have the opportunity to read or to write. I love taking a ball of yarn and turning it into something, and I'm always trying to find a new, different, simpler way to make or do everything! My designs and projects feature seamless, all-in-one piece construction whenever possible. 5Packs Crochet offers hand crafted and custom order items of all types and patterns.
