I am going to share something very personal to me. As my followers have seen and as I have received messages I have decided that I let you all know where I have been over the last few months. I was in a very violent domestic abuse situation that not only caused me a tremendous amount of physical damage, but emotional damage as well. I am not going to go into in depth details, but I had all basic needs taken, my security, my dignity, and to be honest hope. I had no hope that I would ever be able to leave the apartment that I was locked in until I found that one opportunity to escape that I took. I am sorry for the contest not going as planned as I have had lots of things going on. I have changed my name, moved states with just 1 bag. I chose to make these choices so that I can live a happy and safe life. I am now safe, happy, violence free and away from the person who has caused all this harm to me. Some days are easier than others, and some days are really hard that I want to curl up and escape the world. I am now just starting to feel like crocheting and knitting again and working towards rebuilding what brought me so much love and joy. I have no money, none of my yarn, and I am trying to find as many ways to get new needles and yarn to make my dreams happen again.
Thank you for the lovely messages I have received. And to those who were not so kind about me taking a step back from this I hope you are able to understand why i had too.
This happens to people. I hope we all as women, and people can be there for each other and speak up if something is happening. I’m here to answer questions or encourage anyone to speak up.
Thank you. .
