Art and crafts has been a passion for me from a very young age. After graduating from college, I worked at PayPal for 8 years as a senior software automation engineer. It was so busy at work, that I hardly had time for my hobbies. I quit my job to pursue my passion. I am taking crochet classes for kids and adults
