My Story

Hi everyone! For those who dont know me my name is Rebecca. Most of you know me from Instagram or Facebook. I learned to crochet when I was 15 but shortly after lost interest. I was a busy teenager and didnt sit still long enough to do much of anything. I was diagnosed with Epilepsy the beginning of 6th grade from a head injury. From then on I’ve dealt with more problems. I have zevere migraines, a severe Anxiety disorder, depression, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and a very bad lower back and I’m facing lumbar fusion surgery once I meet with the surgeon in the coming weeks. I became disabled about 8 years ago after I worked until I could no longer do it from all the pain I was in. I was home alone 10+ hours a day and fell deeper into depression. I knew I had to do something to keep me busy so I bought some yarn and hooks and began to crochet again. I only did blankets in the beginning because I never learned much more. The past few years I taught myself new stitches, following patterns and my most favorite, Amigurumi! Crochet has saved my life in so many ways! A few years ago I decided I wanted more and my small home business was born. I sold to mostly family and friends in the beginning, then acquaintances through Facebook. Now I am here and I want to share my love of crochet with all of you and take it even further. It will not be all crochet here on my blog but it will be the main focus. If I can share ideas of what helps me with others who have Fibromyalgia, chronic pain etc. maybe it will help someone. Please bear with me as I’m new to all this, Feel free to share your story here as well. I will also share others patterns I’ve enjoyed making. Until next time, pay attention to the little things in life and be happy!❤
