Craft as Therapy Manager
Where do you live: i live in Adelaide, Australia; with my hubby, Nathan, & our twins, Layla & Wolf (& our fur baby Sweep)
What craft is your therapy?: i love ALL the crafts! Just have a look at my pinterest (eek). But crochet is my true love!
How long have you been crafting for?: i’ve been crafting for as long as i can remember, my mum loves to craft & she always let me play with her scrap bits & bobs. i remember “knitting” with a french knitting susan (don’t know the actual name) when i was about 6 or 7. And i loved to do cross stitch. i still do. But i taught myself to crochet 3 years ago, & rarely a day goes past without it.
Tea or coffee?: Coffee!!! Never tea 😣

Your CAT story: When Mandy @crochetbyredagape first shared #craftastherapy on her personal account, i was sinking into a dark place. My heart connected straight away with that post (thank you dear Mandy 😘) as crochet WAS my therapy. I was struggling with infertility, failed IVF & multiple miscarriages. Crochet comforted me, & gave me something to focus on. IVF made me feel like a failure, but crochet made me feel like i still could do something, & it brought me some light in the gloom. Now i’m the very proud mummy of twins, Layla & Wolf. i can’t wait to teach them both how to crochet; & to be able to craft with them one day!
