I've found myself unexpectedly hanging out on the couch a lot this week: a situation that has resulted in a new long-term project for my crochet hook.

Story
Tagline
Polka Dot Cottage
Introduction
I raise boys, take pictures, knit sweaters, keep a less-than-perfect house, blog memories, sew skirts, play with clay, daydream about beach weekends, avoid home improvement projects, crochet blankets, and spend slightly more time looking at screens than I probably should.

Thinking of adding me? In case we don't know each other personally, here are some circles that would be a good fit for me:
  • crafty
  • polymer clay
  • sewing
  • loom knitting, knitting, crochet
  • photography
  • slice-of-life blogger
Bragging rights
I have a camera and a basement full of craft supplies, and I'm not afraid to use them.
Education
  • Drew University
    Computer Science, 1989 - 1993
