The Pixie Behind This Pixie Creates

Hello and welcome to all of my fellow crocheters! I hope you find lots of projects and patterns here to inspire you. My name is Dayna, and I am so excited to have you here!

A little about me: 

Ever since I was little, I’ve loved making things. 

My dad would encourage me to try a new craft every year on my birthday, by getting me all the supplies I would need. 

I went from painting, to drawing, to rug hooking, to scrap booking, and back to painting, before I found crochet. I picked up a hook in 2016, and although I gave up a few times, I haven’t put it down since.

While I love all things crochet, I am a born crafter. Anything crafty interests me, and I have this innate desire to try everything at least once. 

In 2019, I started refurbishing old furniture and giving it a new life; I tried my hand at resin crafts; and I got more passionate about thrifting. 

This Pixie Creates' Dad

I graduated from Brock University with a degree in Mathematics and Education in 2017. 

My goal in life was to be a high school math teacher who inspired students to find their passion in life. I have been an occasional teacher (a.k.a substitute) for the public school board for the past two years, where I’ve filled in for teachers on medical and maternity leave. 

While I really like teaching in a school setting, I realized it isn’t my passion. Hence, the beginning of This Pixie Creates

This blog is a way for me to combine my love of teaching, with my passion for creating. I love being able to share my making process, so you can try similar projects on your own.
