Thank you!
I am a nursing student, finishing my last year of the 4-year bachelor program, and I am very proud of it! I live in beautiful British Columbia, Canada with my husband and 2 adorable kittens. Living in such a beautiful place surrounded by mountains, lakes, and green forest is very inspiring. Crochet design is my way to relax, unwind, and create. It is also a great way to justify my constant need to buy new yarn 🙂 Fun fact, I rarely sketch my designs! I love holding yarn in my hands and letting it tell me what it wants to become. Lately, I’ve been designing way too many blankets and afghans, they are so much fun, and allow great texture and color combinations. I am also a loyal fan of Design Wars 🙂
Hi! I’m Marinke but you can call me Wink. I blog several times a week over at acreativebeing.com where I share my love for crochet & color, and more! You may know me from the crochet tutorials I write for my own blog and Crafttuts+, but I’m mostly known for my weekly crochet mandalas. I have met a lot of lovely people since I started blogging and it is true what they say; bloggy friends are the best friends!

Crochet designing is my passion. I am inspired by my 2 preschoolers, beautiful color combos, simple designs, easy uncomplicated living, and creating beautiful fabric with my hook. My designs are easy, but you wouldn’t know it by looking at them. Most of them are seamless with shaping achieved (in many instances) by stitch selection or hook size, rather than by increasing or decreasing. My philosophy is that the finished result must be beautiful and enjoyable to make, otherwise it’s not really worth it to me. My days are generally filled with parenting my 2 preschool age kids in beautiful Portland, Oregon. When I’m not working in the home or crocheting, I work as a part time attorney for Legal Aid. Since I learned to crochet (in December 2010) I have not missed a day, except for one when I had the flu. I crochet at lunch, breaks, nap time, red lights, etc. and my fingers cannot keep up with all the patterns I have in my head!
