Introduction Hi, I'm Danette. I am a Professional Writing Consultant at Illinois Central College. I have a lifelong passion for the written word and fiber arts. I've been shipping my handknits worldwide for several years. I thank God every day just for the joy of being alive. My wish is to inspire, encourage, delight, and inform you. May you find hope and rest for your soul as you enjoy the moments you spend in this place.
Interests I'm an avid reader. I've been knitting and crocheting for over 35 years. I'm certified to teach and give private knitting/crochet lessons in my home. I sell my knits online and locally. I'm a born animal lover. I love to bake more than I like to cook. Writing has always been a part of who I am. I've been married to my very best friend for over 35 years. I'm a follower and lover of Jesus. I am finishing an Arts degree so I can pursue a Bachelor's Degree in English.
