Thanks for stopping by,

I'm Courtney -

I have lupus and a crippling introverted personality that is balanced only by my extraordinarily extroverted spouse and partner. He and I share our home with our two ever growing daughters and a menagerie of animals on a little half acre homestead in the making.

I'm also the author of the book, Family-Friendly Knits!  The book was a long-term goal that materialized far more quickly than expected.  You can find it at the Interweave store online or anywhere books are sold.

I once used this space freely as a place to document my real life as a fierce woman, doting mother and wife, and fearless pattern drafter. As circumstances changed and I changed along with them, I lost my way here and felt my personal life was better left at that - personal.  I'm regrouping as we ready ourselves to round the corner of 2017 and I'm rediscovering a lot about myself, my people, and my path.

If you'd like to dive deeper, feel free to check out some of my past interviews.  You can find a listing HERE >>

Some of the things our family deals with on a daily basis are completely foreign to a good many. If you're interested in learning more about Trichotillomania or Lupus - or if you or someone you love is suffering with either, I've compiled a list of links I've found helpful.
