[NatCroMo] National Crochet Month Blog Tour 2015

I am so excited to be one of the designers participating in the National Crochet Month Blog Tour hosted by Crochetville. This is my first time participating, so if you haven't "met" me before, here is a little bit about me:

My name is Alessandra Hayden, I am a 35 year old mom of a 6 year old boy and 3 year old girl, we live in Gig Harbor, Washington. I learned to crochet from my grandma Dirce, my dad's mom when I was 8 years old and have always loved it, but never in a million years thought crochet would end up my job. 

I was born and raised in Brazil, I have a bachelor's degree in social communications and came to the US to improve my English, but ended up meeting the love of my life. After a year and a half dating, we got married in Brazil, we have been married for 10 years this July.

After the loss of our first baby, that was a stillborn at 36 weeks, I started crocheting like a mad woman, counting crochet stitches kept my mind busy and helped me grieve. I was accumulating a lot of finished projects, so I decided to open an online shop to sell them, that was when I started receiving inquiries about my patterns, so I started writing them.

Here is a collection of some of my favorite designs:

And this is my newest, the "Twisting Colors Throw" and you can get it at 50% off today and tomorrow only, no coupon needed, the throw is already discounted. Click here.

And to celebrate the National Crochet Month, I am offering a 40% discount on all my patterns, except the Twisting Colors Throw that is already marked down. Offer valid in my ravelry shop only.

I hope you enjoyed my Blog Tour post and if you would like to stay in touch, you can find me on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter, too!
