Just wanting to say "hi" and to introduce myself.
I am the Grandmother to 3, the mother to 2, the partner to 1, and the second me to none ;)
I live in Rural Ontario, Canada and have lived within 20 miles of here my entire life. I love crocheting. Why?
Because it seems to be the only crafty thing that I can do well. My favourite crocheting technique is Tunisian "In the Round" but, having been away from the craft for a few years, I am having to re-learn how to do it, or how I used to do it. Favourite Creations
(besides my 2 kids)The Deathflake Afghan
is my all-time favourite
being a close second
Aside from crocheting, I love photography, but haven't done that for a while either, and gardening, but my thumb isn't really very green. Also, although retired, I have a Young Living essential oil business, as part of my "getting back to basics" lifestyle
Also, as part of that "back to basics", I invested in a Freezer Dryer this year and am so thrilled with how I can preserve food now - from freshly harvested, to local sales, to meal leftovers. Love it. What I "do"?
my purpose in life, I do believe, is empowerment healing. What do I mean by that? Helping people identify their passions, purpose, beliefs, and goals as well as barriers to living one's best life. How do I do it? Through what I call Essential Reflections - using essential oils to trigger memories that help clarify the above, for self-awareness and, thus, empowerment. It's pretty darned cool!
