I am Donna Scroggins. I am a speech pathologist in a school, work as a counselor with juvenille delinquents, have three young adult children, three toddler grandsons and three dogs. The only things that keep me sane are my hobbies. I would love to tell you that I am a prolific knitter, but I have MS and have difficulty with the pattern sequencing. To tell the truth, I can't get past knit, purl, knit, purl, but my mom is an awesome knitter.
She can do sox with the little sticks which brings us to the topic of stitch markers. She pulled out this little chicken charm on a clasp and said "Instead of designing earrings, why don't you make some of these?" I made four sets that night. I love working with the colors and the beads and coming up with a theme and have recently started designing my own beads with polymer clay.
I love your website and think it is wonderful that knitters have a place to come together. My mother is apartment bound and loves your website. She visits frequently and it really helps energize her and I thank you for that because I know she is not the only person that feels that way. I also appreciate the opportunity you are providing me by allowing me to tell others about my business. I am working hard to help it grow in the event that I need to retire early.
You can find my Stitch Markers at http://www.beadedbeauty.etsy.com
and also on ebay. My seller ID is dks107. I will be listing some earrings that match them. I am in the process of trying to publish my website to the internet. I haven't been successful with this yet. I am really excited about having the opportunity to network with other crafters and small business people :D and look forward to getting to know you. Happy Knitting :XX:
