    Always

    Yeah, I Do

    Like right now I'm crocheting a scarf for my friend Aaron.  He knows that it's his Christmas present though, he even picked out the color yarn he wanted me to use.    I also like making cards and folding origami.  For a while my "thing" was to make...

    Off the Beaten Path

    It's so easy to run in and grab something off a shelf that will still be appreciated, but there's nothing like receiving something made with a person's hands just for you -   I knit, make crafts, write, and bake for my friends and family's special occassions regularly. The...
