About Me

Hello! I’m Alicia, mom of two (13+ and 5+), wife to Brandon, and nanny to an amazing little girl who has become part of our family!

When I’m not doing school with my kiddos, we’re outside or I’m crocheting…sometimes we’re outside AND I’m crocheting!

Early on, I just loved crocheting. Then I was introduced to testing for different designers. The testing process really taught me a lot and fostered my desire to create and design my own patterns. Here we are a couple years later and I’m fulfilling that dream: I design my own patterns and host my own testing calls now!

Interested in future testing calls? Find out how to get on my mailing list here: TCSC Testers List
