I have been crocheting since 2008.  There's a bunch of my old work & patterns on this blog.  Most of hats fit a head circumference of 22". Since I don't have time to redo all of my old patterns, make sure you try it on and make adjustments as you go. I don't provide support for the slipper pattern. You must try on the piece and see what feels comfortable to you. 

All of my freebies are listed here and those are for personal use only. You may not sell creations online using my patterns. I am selling patterns in
Silent Daisy as well. If you're looking for octopus, squids or Squittle patterns:here, herehere :)


I have been taking pictures for many years (disposable film or point & shoot). I got my first DSLR back in 2010 and started up a photography business back in 2012. Currently I'm using the Canon 7D

I have used these lenses:
18-135mm, 50mm 2.5, 50mm 1.8, 10-22mm, 85mm 1.8, 50mm 1.4 & 18-55mm

My favorite lenses for portraits are the 50mm 1.4 and 84mm 1.8.  The compact macro (50mm 2.5)  is great for nature and insects.  My ultra wide angle (10-22mm) is perfect for fun everyday shots, landscape and beach trips.
