About Me!

Hi everyone! I am Colleen, Founder of YarnWars!
I started this site as a way to feed my yarning needs, and find other like-minded individuals in the world of Yarn, Knitting, Crochet, you name it!
YarnWars really started off on Facebook. I knew that I could find a few fun people there, and I’m amazed at the amazingly, awesome talents I see posted daily. WOW! Whatta group!!

I just thought I’d tell you a bit about myself, I am a mother, a wife, a sister, a…. well, you get it. I have 4 awesome kids- Here is an adorable picture of them:

Pretty cute huh?! lol, I have my oldest Daughter, she is 19, then my 3 boys, 16, 15 & 10, and the picture above, well, that is a normal day in my home =)
So, OH! Almost forgot, I have my sweet puppy Maggie, who is not really a puppy, but I call her a puppy because she’s just sooooo cute!
I come from a BIG family! My mom and dad, of course, and then 7 siblings! That makes a total of 8 kids, 5 of which are girls, so you may see them from time to time around here or on Facebook. (We[re not openly admitting to being family.. so you probably won’t even know) =P
So that, in a nutshell, is About Me.
I like to have fun, so anytime I have the opportunity (and the extra money, of course) to run a contest… I will!
I love meeting new people, chatting & learning new things, so chances are good that you will see me as a very active participant in the YarnWars community.

Now, you probably thought this About Me was going to be all about how I started yarning and why I still do it, and all that jazz. Well, I thought that might be a little boring & redundant because, if you are addicted to crocheting or knitting, and chances are, you are! because you are here.. You are just like me… addicted! So, there you go! I’m just like you, and that is why we have so much in common, so I will see you later at YarnWars on Facebook!

Thanks for being a part of YarnWars! Sooooooo happy to have you with us =)
