My name is Nicole Podgorski and I just turned 29 on March 1st. I am married and have 2 boys, Xavier and Ean. My husband, Chris, works full time and makes enough to support us. It has been difficult for me to find a job close to home that pays well.  So my husband and I decided it would be best if I stay at home with our boys for the time being.  In doing so, I needed to find a way to make extra money.  So I picked up my crochet needle and started crocheting baby blankets to sell.  My mom taught me to crochet when I was about nine years old.  In just this last year I’ve learned many new patterns and stitches.  This past Christmas, a friend from school asked me to make hats for all the students in her daughter’s class.

I haven’t started doing it as a business yet, which is my goal, but I have been working on projects upon requests. I make Afghans, hats, scarves, and I have even made a teddy bear!
For awhile I could not figure out what I wanted to do as far as a career.  Until I started crocheting. I get to work while I am at home raising my boys.
