About Me

My photo
I've been crocheting for over 30 years, and come from a family of yarn and fabric artisans. I learned to sew from my Grandmother who made several quilts a year entirely by hand...one for each child, grandchild, and great-grandchild. Life situations and changes caused me to take a chance and open my first Etsy shop in Feb. 2011. A few successful months later, I opened my second Etsy shop as BeccaTheBaker...and later in 2011 opened my third Etsy shop as BeyondCrochetToo. I'm a single mother of 2 teenagers (a girl and a boy), plus 2 cats. I'm a 5th generation Native Californian (Northern California. And am happy to be back on the West Coast in the Pacific Northwest where I belong.

New Listing: Bride and Groom Wedding Turtles Set

Well, it took me a LOT longer than I had intended, but... the first Bride and Groom Wedding Turtles Set is finally complete and listed on Etsy! :D

I've been wanting to get these made for the longest time, but each time I started one, I'd get side-tracked or just plain burned out of making turtles. - Don't get me wrong...I LOVE my turtles and do actually enjoy making them. But with anything you do repetitively, you need to take a breather once in awhile and step away from it - no matter how much you may normally enjoy doing it.

With that said - I'm proud to present my latest (and I think greatest) creations to date! :D
