I’m a craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews about crocheting and other crafts. I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new. I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to promoting our crochet community. I’m interested in crafts, interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.

As New Year has just started, its good to think about something totally new.

Of course, we don’t all get the post-Christmas blues, but even so, it’s good to cheer up in January with some new year project ideas. To this end, Mandalas, though gaining popularity are rather still quite rare projects in our houses. So, if you haven’t got one yet, the beginning of the year is a really good moment to get into them. Overall, one will give you a fresh start in something new and be easy to make and at the same time. Thus, not only will you bring some new decorations into your home, you will also work on something that is therapeutic and fun. Moreover, they are also great gifts for friends and family, who may be in need of a little start-of-the-year cheer.
