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.

Playing Catch Up......again.

Well, it's been hectic as usual around here, but now I can finally relax a bit.

After what seems like endless months of preparing, the house is finally on the market!! Yay!!
Now it's just a matter of sitting back with fingers crossed, hoping and praying that an offer will be made soon so we can all be on our way to Oregon. :)

It looks like the kids and I will be driving in Winter through snow areas, but it's not like I haven't done it before (although it's been several years)....and it will be well worth it once we get to the West Coast.

In honor of the upcoming move (did I say "Yay!!" yet? lol), I posted two new recipe favorites in my BeccaTheBaker shop:
Florida Chicken

Oregon Chicken

As you all know, I'm VERY excited about this move!!

Now that things are a little more on track, I will be able to focus more on this blog. And share some more great Etsy finds with you as well as more free recipes, Pay It Forward features, etc. :)

Thank you all for your patience - Becca :)


  1. Hope your house sells quickly so that you can get settled in Oregon soon! Thanks for sharing these great recipes!

  2. I love Oregon. We almost moved to Grants Pass, but decided to travel full-time instead. I hope to be on the NW coast again next summer. I stopped by from EBT and now I am following you.

  3. Thank you Trina and Sandy. :)
    @Sandy: My grandfather used to live in Grants Pass. I have a lot of fun memories of Summers there. :)

    Thank you both for following and commenting. :)
