Crochet Tutorial: Pommin’ Around Cowl

Crochet Tutorial: Pommin’ Around Cowl

Although winter will officially end next month, Wisconsin weather is very temperamental. We see snow even as late as May. As I plan out my future projects, I decided to add a quick cowl to the mix. This Pommin’ Around Cowl is an easy repeat pattern using Grit Stitch. The pom detail on the one border adds a touch of fun and whimsy to this simple design. Perfect for the beginner to advanced crocheter!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.

My Punny Valentine 2018

My Punny Valentine 2018

The tradition continues with my annual Punny Valentine’s. Each year, I create these silly sentiments using crochet and puns. I try to be as creative and amusing as possible. I do, however, have to match a pun to something I can create using my crochet magic. It is NOT easy, let me tell you, this blog showcases my collection from 2018. You can check out 2017’s Punny Valentine’s here and my 2016’s Punny Valentine’s here! Do you have a fun pun to share? Let me know in the comments section. Share a possible pun that might show up in my 2019 Punny Valentine Series! ~Nadia

Below is a list of some Punny Valentine’s. Click on the title link above their photo or click on each photo to be taken to its video tutorial and written pattern! Enjoy!! ♥

Well today is VALENTINE’S DAY!! ❤❤ I am getting *artichoked* up! You probably thought I didn’t *carrot* all that this was coming to the finish line! I knew the end of the pun series would *turnip* sooner or later and I know many of you were *rooting* for these to be over. I *bean* thinking of the best way to end this series and I was *brusselin’* around trying to finish but was running out of steam! I have to say that doing all these puns has me feeling mighty *beet*. I am sure some of you are tired of these as well, but I *yam* what I *yam* and these puns will keep showing up at the beginning of every February! Before next year you will have to *lettuce* know if there are any fun pun projects you want me to demonstrate! How are you spending your Valentine’s Day? Here in Wisconsin it is a little *chili* but Nate and I plan to *Romaine Calm and Carrot On* with our wedding plans. 31 more days until we say “I do”! Oh *Kale*, yeah! 😁 We can’t wait! We are so ready to *broc* and roll down that aisle! Have a great day everyone! Sending all of you LOTS OF LOVE!!

Crochet Tutorial: Fortune Cookie

Crochet Tutorial: Fortune Cookie

If I had a nickel for every pun I had to come up with, I would have plenty of *dough* and be worth a *fortune*! I’ve had pretty *good luck* these past two weeks, I would say. I am feeling like a smart *cookie* coming up with these clever captions! Some may think I am a bit of a *weir-dough* to keep coming up with puns for so long, but it is just the way the *cookie crumbles*! I do it every year and it’s become my thing. Besides, I do it for Nate. Because together, we are a *batch* made in heaven and we are very *fortunate* to have that! Now I better get to writing the pattern and post the blog for the Fortune Cookie Amigurumi before I *delete all my cookies* and have to start all over! I’m a *tough cookie* and could do that, but I wouldn’t want to! (Scroll down for written instructions)

Crochet Tutorial: Simple Basket

Crochet Tutorial: Simple Basket

I’m *vine-ally* coming to the last few days of puns! I’ve been a *basket-case* trying to think of great ideas that are *ex-straw-dinary* and fun. I know some of you can’t *container* feelings about what you think. Some think they are *unbe-weave-able*, others think they are pretty *rattan*! I have been a bit *bamboo-zled* over the response! With so much on my *plait* right now, a *wicker* woman might give up and quit these puns. Not me! I would be in a *bushel* of trouble! Doing 14 projects in 14 day isn’t easy, but I am someone who *sticks* with it! These projects and puns are a tradition and this tradition has become *woven* in my heart because these are all for Nate to *reed* and crocheters to enjoy! Once these are over, however, I plan to *braid* around and celebrate that I *willow*-nly have the wedding to *carry* out! Yayyy! Stay tuned for the Mini Basket tutorial! It will be up on the blog later today-just in time for Easter!

Crochet Tutorial: Shamrock Appliqué

I am trying not to *press my luck*, but I do like to press the boundaries of these puns! Hey, I’m a *clover*, not a fighter! And I don’t fight against or *tre-foil*-ing the flow of creativity that comes to my mind. So I go all in, sometimes getting a bit *clover-whelmed* with pun overload! I feel pretty *lucky* and *be-leaf* that many of you enjoy my *clover-ness*. These are *magically delicious* ideas that somehow *plant* themselves in my brain. That reminds me, it is time to *shamrock* and roll and get this on my blog! Pretty *clover* how I got that last pun in, right? That’s why I’m here, to *shamrock* your crochet world! (Not trying to make you *green* with envy, but I am pretty good at making these puns up.)

Crochet Tutorial: Pickle Amigurumi

It’s kind of a big *dill* to come up with these little projects and matching puns each day. I am *gherkin* round the clock to keep these going for two weeks. When I find myself in a bit of a *pickle*, and it’s *crunch* time to post, I try to stay as *cool as a cucumber* so I can get this all done in time. I *relish* the feeling of a successful project that I worked *dill-igently* to complete. I love to have the punny caption to match. It’s *Vlasic* Nadia. This is the real *dill*! Even with *dilling* with so many wedding details, I love the puns I have *pickled* and made so far! So what’s the *dill* yo? Do you have a favorite?

Crochet Tutorial: Watermelon Scrubby

Crochet Tutorial: Watermelon Scrubby

Thanks a *melon* everyone, for indulging me with these puns!! These are my love letters for MY Valentine! As Nate and I pre*pear* 🍐 for our wedding next month, all I *peel* is happiness. We do our *berry* best to handle all the wonderful chaos coming our way. But with that, comes a bit of stress. Sometimes when I feel a tad *melon-choly* I think *honey dew* you want to just run away? Nate might say, “Haha, *Orange* you cute? 🍊 Sorry, but we *cantaloupe*.” He really is a *peach*! We do make the perfect *pear*, and he truly is my one in a *melon*. He holds the *kiwi* to my heart! 🥝 During all this planning crochet has been MY escape from all the *fruitiness*! It’s *plum-believable* how much I enjoy a crochet respite and making up these silly puns along the way. This easy peasy *lemon squeezy* 🍋 Melon Scrubby 🍉 has helped keep me from going *bananas*! *Lime* sure a few of you are even *raisin* your eyebrows at how far I can take these play on words and correlate it to my projects! It’s not easy, but I’m *grape-ful* 🍇 to all of you that stuck it out until the end of this *cherry* 🍒 bad stream of fruit puns.

Crochet Tutorial: Open Heart Cup Cozy

Crochet Tutorial: Open Heart Cup Cozy

Oh, it’s after 8am! Sorry I just had a little *hic-cup* this morning, but here’s today’s pun! Better *latte* than never! So we are halfway through our Valentine’s Day puns! *Cool Beans* you guys! Words can’t *espresso* how much it *beans* to me to share this *creativi-tea* with all of you! I *mug* continue to be motivated and finish out this stretch! Today’s project is an exercise in *simplici-tea*–here’s my Open Heart Cup Cozy. I had a different idea when I started (I frogged it) but I always say “if at first you don’t succeed, *chai, chai* again.” This project is great way to tell teachers, colleagues, and friends how *tea-riffic* they are! Add some special *blends* and give the gift of *tranquili-tea* to someone you care about! Not sure if you want to try this? I say go ahead and *brew* it! The Open Heart Cup Cozy will be on the blog later today. Now I think I might go crochet and listen to some Fleetwood *Mac-chiato*. Ok, too far…😂😂 *Cough-ee* #sorrynotsorry Doing this for y’all is like living la vida *mocha*. Seriously, I’m done now.

Crochet Tutorial: Ghost Amigurumi

Crochet Tutorial: Ghost Amigurumi

How is everyone on this *boo-tiful* day? For some time, before I release these Punny Valentine projects, I spend a *spooky* amount of time *haunting* around for ideas. A lot of the ideas get the *boo-t*. That whole “what *ghost* up must come down” happens with a lot with my ideas. I get excited for some, and then some fall flat! Many take *float* in my mind and are a *scream*! You can *scare* up inspiration from anywhere and make it a pun. Some things won’t have a *ghost* of a chance, but it *ghost* to show you that many things can!

Crochet Tutorial: Poppy Flower

When I *rose* up this morning, I thought to myself, oopsie *daisy* I am not prepared for my post today! I was like, “What in *carnation* do I write about in today’s puns?” I would be *pollen* your leg if I told you that I was prepared for today’s punny caption about flowers! I was hoping to have someone *plant* an idea for me so this would not be so difficult. But boy, was this tough! *Bunches* of times I felt like I could not *cultivate* a good idea. But then a *seed* in my mind started to *grow and grow*. Before you know it, I began *rootin’* for myself to finish this great idea! And here it is! I am hoping *thistle* bring cheer to all my *buds*! Happy Sunday!

It might be *acorn-y* way to start out your Saturday morning, but I am trying to show you *nuttin* but love with my Valentine Puns! Honestly, there’s *nut* much better than starting the weekend with a bit of humor! *Oak-ay, oak-ay*! It’s *nut* my fault if some of these get a little cringe-y! Well, it is, but, I’m trying hard to keep you *crackin* up! That’s not easy! I know I can’t be the only *squirrel* in the world who loves these silly jokes. But that’s me in a *nutshell*. Silly. Anyway, In *cashew* were wondering, when I started these 14 days of puns, I promised myself I *walnut* fail. I know it *pecan* as something small but now *almond* fire and still *droppin* em! Stay tuned for more to come!

Wedding Plans: 8 Weeks Left

Wedding Plans: 8 Weeks Left

There are eight weeks left before our wedding, and this week the invitations were sent! I will be waiting for the RSVPs to come in and will be busy crocheting the color coded “meal flowers” immediately.
My colors are all jewel tones – an amethyst purple, dark sapphire blue, and an emerald/teal green and of course gold. Each flower indicates a coordinating meal and will be attached to each escort card.


Our reception will be a plated dinner and our selections are the following:

Chicken Option:
(Nadia’s Favorite Food)
Chicken (Murgh) Makhani
A Pakistani dish consisting of a spiced curry mixture of cream, tomato, and butter,
blended together with full flavored roasted boneless chicken pieces served with Basmati rice.

Beef/Seafood Option:
(Nate’s Favorite Food)
Steak/Salmon
6 oz. center cut sirloin steak with king salmon, paired with house whipped Yukon gold potatoes and fresh garlic hericot vert

Vegetarian Option:
(Combined Favorite)
Classic Pesto Linguini
Linguini in light pesto cream with artichoke hearts, sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, onions, and shaved parmesan served with garlic toast

For all kids, we will be serving signature Mac & Cheese.

Before planning a wedding, one never realizes the details that go into coordinating such an event!

Since we are having a Pakistani/Irish fusion wedding held on St. Patrick’s Day weekend, there are fun details from both of our cultures being incorporated into our special day.

My Mehndi is being held a day before our wedding and this event is a fun day for the ladies.  The Henna Ceremony, or the Rasm-e-henna ceremony, typically takes place one or two days prior to the main wedding day. Mehndi is a form of body art from Ancient India, in which decorative designs are created on a person’s body, using a paste, created from the powdered dry leaves of the henna plant. The henna is symbolically placed on the bride’s hands and feet by a professional mehndi artist. The designs are very intricate. Often hidden within the mehndi pattern the name or initials of the groom are applied. In Pakistan, the Mehndi is often one of the most important pre-wedding ceremonies. This ritual is supposed to bring good luck and longevity to the bride’s married life.


The wedding day will all be held at the same place with our ceremony being held in one part of the venue and reception and dinner in the banquet room.

The Walima (Groom’s Reception) is a meal that is held the day after the wedding. It is a feast of traditional Pakistani foods. It is at this ceremony that the bride and groom are formally and publicly showcased as a married couple.

Thankfully we are able to do much of the wedding DIY ourselves. My mom and I have been on the go for the past week, (well since I got engaged, but more so in the past week!) and we have been able to check a lot off the to-do list. We are definitely do-ers and planners! Nate has been sooo incredibly helpful as well, and of course, my dad weighs in to share ideas about the Pakistani parts of our wedding.

We met with our amazing DJ and planned out the music for the best dance party!

I may have mentioned in an earlier blog post that I plan to make all my flowers myself. I have been working on all the flowers for the bouquets, boutonnières, corsages, and centerpieces.


We started to put together an arrangement this past weekend to come up with how to incorporate the crochet flowers into our centerpieces. This was just a rough start, but we are loving how they look against the Lemon Leaf greenery. I have gotten a good start on the flowers and have about 150-175 left to crochet aside from those tiny meal flowers which I will know more when those RSVPs come in.


I crocheted my girls the Wrapped In Jewels Shawl which I will be gifting to them at our Rehearsal dinner. I shared those with you at the end of last year, and I was able to cross that off my list. I also have the Henna Inspired Mandalas that I crocheted and hope to somehow incorporate those into the weekend but not sure where.

Details, details, details!! I love the creative parts of the planning, but the logistics are giving me a touch of worry trying to keep everything straight and organized. So far, it is all coming together very well. My excitement is growing by the day! More updates to come!! Thank you for joining me on this journey!!

Punny Valentine’s: “Love” a Good Pun

Punny Valentine’s: “Love” a Good Pun

The tradition continues with my annual Punny Valentine’s. Each year, I create these silly sentiments using crochet and puns. I try to be as creative and amusing as possible. I do, however, have to match a pun to something I can create using my crochet magic. It is NOT easy, let me tell you, this blog showcases my collection from 2017. You can check out 2016’s Punny Valentine’s here! Do you have a fun pun to share? Let me know in the comments section. Share a possible pun that might show up in my 2018 Punny Valentine Series! ~Nadia

Below is a list of some Punny Valentine’s. Click on the link next to their date or click the photo to be taken to its video tutorial and written pattern! Enjoy!!

February 1st: Two Peas in a Pod
My first of 14 Valentine’s Day puns begins with these Two Peas In A Pod. Every day I’m “brussel-in” to make these puns! It makes me very “hap-pea!” So, if you “carrot” all, “peas” give these puns a chance. I’m pretty sure that it will “lettuce” have a few good laughs together! This is going to be so much “pun!”

February 2nd: Volcano Bag
Day 2 of our Valentine’s Day puns and things are really “heating” up. I don’t mean to “int-erupt” your day, but you should know how much I “lava” this silliness, so much so, that I could just “burst!”

February 3rd: Leaf Appliqué
I know you are “falling” for some of these “unbe-leaf-ably” silly puns. It helps to create good “chemis-tree” between us when we can “photo-sympathize” with how lame they can become. I know it’s “over-ELM-ing,” but we can still laugh together. I hope it’s “OAK-kay” that I continue to post until I get “stumped.” Even then I won’t “leaf” you “hanging” as I “branch” out and try to be more punny!

February 4th: Mouse and Cheese Amigurumi
This may be my “cheesiest” pun yet. It’s “nacho” fault if these puns get so “stinky” you roll your eyes when I say life is “cheddar” when we’re together. When I am with you, I don’t feel “aged” or “bleu.” I do have to stay “sharp” to keep up these punny lines. Otherwise, it could look “swiss-picious” if I am laughing at these “prov-ALONE.” So, like I said, we are really “gouda” together so please, will you “brie” mine? It would be “mice” if your answer was “YES, cheese!”

 

February 5th: Mushroom Amigurumi
You may think that making up puns is no “truffle” at all. But, Holy “Shiitake,” it’s not easy!! I “moss” say that I have really taken a “lichen” to this. At least I have “morel” support from everyone. You give me “mush-room” to be creative, so I can “button” down and get these done! Once I get a good pun figured out, I feel like the “porto-bell-o” of the ball! I appreciate your encouragement because that’s what friends are “spore.”

February 6th: Avocado Amigurumi
“Bravo-cado” on sharing these puns everyone! I have laughed a lot and said, “You’ve “guac” to be kidding me,” several times! Some responses are “hard-core” and “avo-control!” There were a few “guac-ward” moments. I know, I tend be go too far that I can end up in the “pits” with these puns. It seems so wrong but feels so “ripe,” so keep it up, and “guac” my world with your creativity!

February 7th: Corn Amigurumi
I hope you are enjoying these “corny” puns! I’m “stalking” the Internet with “corn-viction” to help “plant” my mind with ideas this Valentine’s Day. Each pun is “butter” than the last. I come “ear” to find creativity. I search online for a “kernel” of truth and a pun that’s “a-peel-ing.” When I find it, I say “shucks” this is “sweet!” I’ve had to “weed” through a lot of “crop” to come up with all these “a-maize-ing” puns, but you’re worth it! After you finish “plowing” through the amount of “ridicul-husk”puns in this caption, I hope the rest of your day is filled with” uni-corns” and rainbows!

February 8th: Tomato Amigurumi
Trying to think of new and clever puns each day is making me feel a bit “plum” crazy. I tend to think “what’s “to-mato” with you, Nadia? You need to “ketchup” and figure these all out!” I’m trying to keep these upbeat and “juice” the cutest play on words, but sometimes it can become a bit “dicey.” I want to say thank you “cherry” much for “picking” up on my sense of humor and playing along with my “fruit-iness!”

February 9th: Bumble Bee Amigurumi
There has “bee-n” a lot of “buzz” going around about these puns. “Honey,” I’m trying to always “beehive” to “bee” sure my jokes don’t “sting.” I try to “bee” positive and “comb” through many ideas before they “stick.” Not all of my puns are “flower-y” or silly. I have “pollen” for a few lame ones. I agree that a couple were a bit “un-bee-lievable.” I always appreciate your feedback and “raw honey-sty.” Your encouragement makes me feel like a “Queen.” I’m trying to stay “hummm-ble, ” so I will stop “drone-ing” on and on, but before I go, I should say, I think you all are the “bees knees!” *insert cringy eyerolls here* HAHA!

February 10th: String of Hearts Cup Cozy
Rise and shine, it’s a “brew-tiful” day! Words can’t “espresso” how much you “bean” to me. You always stay “grounded” and work at “mocha” me happy. Even when I have a “latte” on my mind, you are there to give me your sweet “sugar.” Every day, you’re ready to face the daily “grind.” Even if each day feels like a “deja brew,” you never get “heated” and say “I don’t give a “frapp,”” or “What’s “Sumatra” with my life?” Instead, you’re always “perky” and “tea-riffic!” So, better “latte” than never, I want you to know that you’re more than an Average “Joe.” You’re just my “cup of tea.”

February 11th: Fish Amigurumi
We are “bass-ically” coming to the end of our Valentine’s puns. I “fish” we had more time because I’m having so much “fin!” I have a “boat-load” of material. I’m not being “koi” about it. With only a few days left, I’m not about to “swimmer” down. Instead, I’m over here, “kraken” myself up! I “sardine-ly” try to keep everyone laughing. You know I’m not doing this just for the “halibut.” These puns are an annual event. You may wonder, “”Water” you doing these for, Nadia?” My answer is, “These puns are a big “tank” you for being in my life!” I have always said, “You are my “ray” of sunshine.” You make me want to “Carp-e” Diem, and not “flounder” around anymore. There’s nothing “fishy” about this. My “sole” is truly in making up these puns!

February 12th: Scientist Amigurumi
I “periodically” get inspiration from everyday things for these crochet love notes. I get a “sine” that an idea might work, and then I start to “planet.” Some of these are “sodium” funny, I have slapped my “neon” a couple of occasions! The “gravity” to make these puns epic is “multiplied” by the fact that I’m running out of “time.” I’m trying to finish them at the “speed of light.” I have plenty of “energy” to keep these going for a couple more days! No “matter” what, through everything, you know my love for this is “constant,” but right now, I’m going to take a break and have a piece of “Pi.”

February 13th: Gnome Amigurumi
I “gnome” that this series is almost done. I hope these have brought some “magic” to your life. I’ve been “toad” that I make up some pretty good ones! I have been “trolling” through some keywords to pun this caption to make sure it’s “elfin'” hilarious. Some have been so funny, I hope no one wet their “plants” reading these! I’m being “fairy” careful to make sure they’re full of fun and “fantasy.” I have “pixie-d” some great projects to make some special Valentine’s ideas to help your love “grow.” This cute Gnome would be perfect for a “garden party” accent!

February 14th: Lemons to Lemonade Pillow
I have always had a “zest” for life, and “lime” so grateful to be able to do what I love. For the past 2 weeks, my creative “juices” have been going in high gear to bring you this series of puns leading up to Valentine’s Day. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I have!! At times, I may have blurred the “limes” between humorous and pushing too far. I’m sure some were a bit “sour” and others made you “peel” with laughter. Today’s pun is no exception. This pillow is “juice” the cutest way to end our series and allows me to “ex-press” how much all this means to me. I do this for YOU! I plan to “wedge” this under me to provide something to “curdle” up with once my procedure and biopsies are over. I’m so lucky to have my “main squeeze” with me during these tests! My life is made up of many “making lemonade” moments. Any way you “slice” it, was a perfect way to bring this series to a close. So, time to “pucker up” and get this procedure done! I will post the blog for this pillow as soon as I’m a bit more “fresh.” Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone! Sending you all my love!!

Letterboard Inspiration

Letterboard Inspiration

Remember when I made my wish list blog? I had listed some nice additions that I was hoping to put in my craft room in my new home once my room was finished. Well, one of those items happened to find its way under our Christmas tree this year. My brother, Nabeel, bought me my very first (and much wanted) letterboard! Obviously, I squealed with childish delight because this truly was something I was hoping to get!

My creative energy is on high alert to find inspirational quotes to post each week to keep me motivated and share with all of you! I decided to try to post a photo twice a week; something fun written on my brand new board.

I am off to a great start and I hope to continue with this mini project throughout the year. This blog is where I plan to keep track of these fun shots and hopefully you will come back for inspiration from time to time to see the new ones added!

Have a fun crochet, crafty, creative quote to share? Feel free to post it in the comments!

Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

I am making the best out of these frigid temps this week as I finish yet another weather inspired pattern. With temperature well below zero and brutal wind chills, it is no wonder that my mind is always thinking of ways to stay as snug and cozy as I possibly can! Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens are my latest creation to come off my hook!

These cozy mitts are fantastic and definitely doing their job keeping my digits nice and toasty! Frigid air, don’t care, I got me a pair! Ok, that was silly, but these mittens are not! Using Red Heart Evermore Chunky Yarn, this pair works up fast and easy! I have noted how to make these a bit bigger if you want more room! Handmade mittens are inspired by days gone by when most of the winter worn items were homespun yet these will always stand the test of time. My Wonderfully Warm Mittens are functional and very stylish today and for generations to come! Make yourself a pair! These also make a great gift!

Crochet Tutorial: Houndstooth Stocking Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Houndstooth Stocking Hat

Who doesn’t love the drama of a great hat? It is the finishing touch to an outfit. The proverbial “cherry on top.” Each hat we wear makes a statement. Why not make that statement with a fun Houndstooth Stocking Hat this year? Picture everyone in their holiday pajamas and each head capped with one of these great pieces! I see next year’s Christmas card just waiting to be made with that scene in mind! A comfy cap that is sure to please everyone. Warm, fun, whimsical, and perfect for the whole family! This hat is a “Done in a Day” easy project. Add a yarn or faux fur pom to complete this look!!

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this hat:

-You will need less than 200 yards of yarn for this hat and will fit an ADULT.
-This hat measures 22 inches around the head and 20 inches long.
View this blog (about halfway down the page) for other sizes so you can make other sizes of this design!

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis Awareness Week December 1-7

Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis Awareness Week December 1-7

December 1-7 is one week out of the year that is designated to Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness. So, as a voice for building awareness and being an advocate for myself and patients battling this debilitating disease, I wanted to share with you a few facts about these diseases. I know this is not crochet related, but the reason I started crochet was to help cope with my illness and also help pass the time in the hospital when I would be in for months at a time.

Crohn’s disease is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It affects the entire gastrointestinal tract and can affect anywhere from the mouth to the anus.

Ulcerative colitis affects the large intestine/colon, and rectum. Symptoms include Inflammation and ulcers, diarrhea, internal bleeding, fatigue, fevers, abdominal pain and cramping, reduced appetite leading to significant weight loss. Complications from this disease and sometimes treatments can be life threatening!

THERE IS NO CURE.

 

Oftentimes serious drugs like chemotherapies and biologics are needed and/or drastic surgeries are necessary to stave off the progression of the disease. Most people who suffer from these diseases can appear “normal” or “healthy” from their outward appearance, but are silently suffering from the inside. Many are among our friends, family, co-workers, community members – millions of people worldwide have some form of IBD!!!!

It is an invisible illness that oftentimes is not discussed in everyday company. Unless you know ME or someone who has Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis you may have never heard of these before.

 

Have questions? Want to learn more? Ask me anything-I am an open book when trying to educate about this topic. One thing over the years I have learned is there is no shame battling illness and the stigma surrounding it. I may not look it, but I am battling this disease Every. Single. Day. It affects nearly every aspect of my life. I am not alone. I have so many friends suffering!! I am devastated to say people were lost by complications of this disease.

If we can educate just one person through our journey, through disease, then our suffering is not in vain and there is some purpose in all we have gone through and continue to face. Please, Please take time to learn more this week (and beyond) and understand how devastating Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis really is.

Crohn’s disease has impacted every aspect of my life including School, Employment, Relationships (Romantic or Familial), Socially, Financially, and Emotionally.
