My Bio

I never know what to say, but here it goes. I graduated with an AAS August 2009, and passed by Nursing Boards in November of the same year. This December, after a two year fight with chronic pain, I was diagnosed with a rare form of Rheumatoid Arthritis. I started crafting seriously when I was forced to limit my activity and lost friends who didn’t understand my chronic pain and the limitations that come with it. Crochet and knitting has definitely helped keep me sane during a difficult time in my life. I am beginning to feel more confident with my skills and am tackling bigger projects. I have a severe case of yarn ADD, every time I see a fabulous new yarn I have to buy it and start a project, needless to say I have a lot of WIPs. I am trying hard to finish them, I have three down. I am also a major perfectionist, which helps limit the WIPs because when I am not satisfied, even if it is a minor error, I have to frog it. I love music, the Discovery Channel, and continuing education credits. I am currently looking for a job in a hospital and applying to Bachelor’s Nursing programs online. I recently conquered my fear of DPNs!
