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.
I know it's still a bit early to talk about Halloween, Fall and Thanksgiving, but it never too early to talk about sugar corn candy. My hubby, he is a loyal fan of sugar corn candy, he can eat a whole bag of those without blinking his eyes. In the past I never really like corn candy because it's too sweet for my tooth, but after I met him and saw that he could put this thing in his mouth non-stop while working, watching tv, and even doing yard work, I started to look at this candy a different way. This candy is a symbol of the sweetness you can get from Fall, Thanksgiving and Halloween. The color is cheerful and it's always bring you back the memories of the happiness to have a big feast, party and having the lovely people around you in that season. Now while I am typing this, just thinking about it makes me want to have one. Since they are not in the supermarket yet, meanwhile I think I can just look at this amigurumi sugar corn and wait patiently until the fall arrives. =)
