About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Self Employed Knitter, College Student - Arts/English Major
Location Morton, Illinois, United States
Introduction Hi I'm Danette. I spend my days in a dreamland of talking to animals, creating and selling knits that I love, capturing words that chase each other around in my mind and living this beautiful life with the people I love. I thank God every day just for the joy of being alive. My wish is to inspire, encourage, delight and offer hope and rest to your soul. May you enjoy the moments you spend here 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.
