I want you to enjoy crocheting! Let's smile, make jokes, and learn a new hobby together! After your initial lesson you will have a grasp on basic stitches. From there, I will help you develop your crochet skills so you can venture out and begin creating for yourself or for gifts! Nothing beats a hand-made gift!
After each lesson, I will give you a small assignment to work on that will help you develop. I will let you lead the pace. Crocheting is fun and should never be stressful!
I have been crocheting since I was 12 years old. Throughout the years I crocheted blankets, granny squares, Character hats, beanies, scarves, amigurumi, baby clothes, and so much more. Crocheting has been an outlet where I de-stress and unleash my creativity! I always have a can-do mind! If I can i

My mom taught me origami when I was little; during the communism we did not have much to play with but our imagination was growing wild. So, just like in the kitchen when few ingredients can make good food, the same crafts can be done with whatever is handy around the house.
Note: My favorite project is the carton doll that has a dozen colorful dresses in her wardrobe.
Before reading about me, I'd like to share up front the honor that my newest student, R., has brought to me by choosing to learn Romanian. Nothing special so far except that he is 100 years old!!!! Yes, you read that correctly: a century old. He is the outmost inspiring person in my life by teachin

Japanese Original Traditional Origami
Origami is fun, easy, inexpensive and great for sharing with others. I teach many different types of origami. :)
＊Fruits & Vegetables
＊Sweet & Food
＊Others Many More...;)
Origami (Ori meaning "to fold", and kami meaning "paper")
is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. In modern usage, the word "origami" is used as an inclusive term for all folding practices, regardless of their culture of origin.
There is nothing quite like the joy you get from transforming a plain square piece of paper into a container, animal, flower, etc.
It still puts a smile on your faces when you complete an origami. :)
