I’m Rachel, or Ray, or even Raquel, as some of my friends and siblings like to call me. With me in this picture is my beautiful mom. My family and I have been in theater for  over 15 years (hence the costumes and excessive amount of stage makeup).  I’ve been crocheting and knitting for about seven years now and I’m completely self taught.

A year or two after I taught myself to knit and crochet I began experimenting with creating my own patterns, my own designs. After all what’s the fun in creating something without taking on the spirit of adventure and creating something new?  So with that spirit of adventure I decided not only to create things of my own, but to sell them in my own Etsy shop as many of my siblings friends were requesting custom designs from me. But not all of my items are designed by me. Most of them, if not all, were designed by someone else. Also I love to write, writing is something that I’ve spent hours and hours on creating my own stories. So what better way to integrate the two then to start a blog?
