I've been away from my blog for too long :(

 What a crazy time it's been! I hope everyone is doing ok and making the best of the situations we are in. Some of you may have had the time to sit back and crochet (you are so lucky!), but some like me, may be flat our busy with other work. I've never really stopped crocheting or designing, just scaled back. I've been having a hard time finding "time" to spend writing and editing. I work in the home decorating and paint industry as a market manager full time and it's been a wild ride these past two years. Who knew that a pandemic would cause a construction and home reno boom?!  I'm tired. I'm exhausted. My mental health has taken a hit. 

I've been reflecting on the things that I love, that have unfortunately been put on hold or been non prioritized as I work my ass off to make other people rich and happy. Such is life. 

Every year at Christmas time, I crochet something for my employees as a gift. I almost didn't do it this year! Until a couple weeks ago an employee asked me if she could hire me to make a pair of mittens for her daughter. I said sure, that should be fairly easy and quick. Then she said, "I'm going to have to find myself some new gloves soon too, but daughter comes first." 

I had a lightbulb moment! I spent the next couple of days secretly analyzing my staffs' hands :D One week later I have crocheted 4 pairs of gloves, 2 men's and 2 women's for my wonderful employees. And I loved every minute of it! I felt like me again. It felt good!

God I missed crocheting!

(I will share my adult crochet gloves and my mitten pattern that I wrote for a sweet 7 year old soon!)
