What I've been up to lately...

About Me

Hi, I am Carolyn.  I am Mommy to 4 amazing little boys, the youngest of whom are twins, and wife to my high school sweetheart.  We share our home with 2 Italian Greyhounds, A.K.A "the girls."  I have been crocheting since I was 7 years old...mostly long chains then...mostly hats now! In 2008 I opened an Etsy shop, Moose Mouse Creations featuring my original crocheted designs.  I also love sewing, baking, cake decorating, crafting, doing projects with my kids, and attempting to capture my family in photographs.

My life has taken an interesting path.  While attending college to become a teacher, I trained as a floral designer.  I then taught preschool and elementary school for several years before heading back to college and eventually going to medical school.  I graduated from medical school and became a doctor.  I worked in an OB/GYN residency for 2 years.  During my residency, my first son Zachary was born.  Having a child made me re-examine the course of my life, yet again.  I realized that babies grow up quickly and I was missing out on the most important "career" of my life.  So, when Zack was 15 months old, I left my residency to pursue full time motherhood.

So, now here I am, Mom to Zack born in 2004, Rowan in 2006, and twins Avery and Zander born in 2009.  I crochet hats for my little etsy shop, do all sorts of creative projects, manage the education and social lives of my clan, and try to maintain a somewhat organized household all while chasing after 4 VERY busy boys.  In this blog I hope to share a taste of our chaotic, creative life and to show that education is never wasted, it just isn't always used for it's initial intention!
