I am a 24-year-old crocheter, baker, vegetarian, writer, and aspiring knitter. I like to make things with my hands, swing Eskrima sticks, and stay up really, really late.
So here we are, folks. Three years after starting this account, and it's certainly been about a year since I've even touched a roll of duct tape. My crochet hooks and giant box of yarn is now the muse I listen to, and the one I happen to resonate strongest with. Perhaps another time, I will be drawn back to duct tape art, but I find that I have a hard time sticking to one thing for a long time. I did duct tape art for the better part of 5 years, and I'm coming up on my 2nd crochet anniversary, so who knows how long I will continue to see this as my passion.

Among crocheting, writing has also become very important to me. I hope to soon share my time equally with my hooks and pens, so you guys may even soon see some prose sneaking into my deviations.

I think a lot of my duct tape art was based on money. "You could sell that", "You could make so much money", "How unique! People would pay a lot for that!" was stuff I heard so often, that it became the sole reason I was making things. I do not care about a lot of the things I made, but I made them because either I knew they would sell, or because someone commissioned me, and I didn't have it in me to say "No, that's not my style, and beyond my talent, and I won't do it". That latter part is happening to me a little bit nowadays, but I think I am keeping myself in check enough to say "No, no I don't have any idea how to make that, so you're going to have to find someone else." I still hear a lot of the "Sell that!" and "Think about the money!" And even if I am thinking about the money, I am not selling out. I am only making things I WANT to make, and if it makes me a couple bucks, then I guess it's just a bonus.

So all in all, I wanted to just say that my duct tape works are on hold for now, possibly for a long while. I hope you all enjoy my crochet work, baking arts, any future writings that may pop up here, and above all else, I hope that as I go through my artistic phases from month to month, and year to year, that you all will continue to watch me, and encourage me to help me grow with whatever I happen to be infatuated with at the time. I intend to do a lot, and to make a lot, and to have this DeviantArt gallery brimming with my ideas, passion and self-expression; nothing more, and nothing less.

If at any point you are interested in more stories, ramblings, breakdowns, or whatever it may be, feel free to check out (and follow) my blog, Creative Compendium.

If you DO have any questions regarding my method, patterns, or purchasing a piece, please E-mail me at

I have an Etsy, but it is currently inactive. I will let you all know when it is up and running.

Thanks for taking the time, and I hope you have a creative and inspired day (and night)!

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there.
 :happybounce:  Please, help me get this group off the ground!

I can't remember if you saw it or not, but I recently made Ember (girl dragon from a Hero's Tail) and added that onto my Spyro pattern. If you'd like it, I would send it to you for free, just message me on Etsy. :) Just in case you are up for more dragons, lol.
