About me

Location Corvallis, OR, United States
Introduction 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 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.
Interests I like to take a classic pattern and make it unique and modern, using nontraditional colors or unique designs. I'm greatly inspired by the colors that reflect my moods, as well as the colors of the Seasons.
Favorite Movies Anything that stirs the emotions - whether it's comedy, drama, romance, thrillers, or a combo of all the above.
Favorite Music I'm a child of the '70s and teen of the '80s....Heavy Metal, plus bands like Led Zeppelin, The Doors, The Eagles, and Journey really get me going.
Favorite Books To Kill A Mockingbird - Harper Lee Anything Stephen King Anne Rice's non-religious books (no offense to anyone) ...and embarrassed to say: The Sookie Stackhouse novels as well as the novels by Kelley Armstrong. I LOVE to read when I have the time, so I'm always on the lookout for a good book!

What would you name your ballet inspired by the sight of children leaping through a garden sprinkler?
