How It all began...

My name is Janet Christopher and I’ve been married to my husband, Tim, since 1992. We have both a son, daughter and son-in-law serving our country in the United States Air Force - all overseas. Having been in the Air Force ourselves, my husband and I know exactly what they are going through and support them 100%.

A little over a year ago my husband and I sold our house and started living in our RV full-time. We enjoying spending our winters near the border of Mexico where is very warm and prime golfing area. :) This also gives me lots of time to create!


I learned to crochet when I was very little. My mom handed me a crochet hook and taught me a chain stitch and I was off!! I think I made a hundred leashes for dogs, necklaces, Barbie bracelets, and anything else you can imagine with a long chain of yarn..lol. She eventually taught me a little more and I was making ruffled skirts for my Barbies.  I did make an afghan when I was in the military and then another in 2003-4. And a couple of doggie sweaters here and there, but I didn’t really do anything serious with my crocheting…..until later. 

 

Fast forward to Feb 2014. I was thinking about what I could do to help with income for retirement/fun/fixing up the house, etc…nothing major, when I came across a local trading site that showed a lady selling little photo prop baby hats. I thought to myself “Hey, I could do that and it would be fun, too!”


Since then, I’ve found that I really enjoy helping others learn to crochet or learn more about this wonderful therapeutic craft! I have heard so many people say that they can only follow a video and not read a pattern or that most patterns are written so poorly.  I'm hoping to help.  My website will be a work in progress so please have patience with me and my very limited website skills. I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do creating it!!  

Thank you so much,
Janet
