First, let me welcome you to Heart Hook Home – I am so glad you’re here!
My name is Ashlea Konecny and I am a wife, mother of two young boys and yarn and crochet enthusiast. In addition to my love of all things fiber and crochet related I also sew, hot glue just about anything and I dabble in woodworking. I’m not so handy in the kitchen so I tend to stick with easy recipes that the whole family can enjoy.
I first learned to crochet about four years ago from my little brother Forrest and have not been able to put away the hook since. My favorite pastime is playing with yarn and while creating new crochet patterns is my favorite, I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with you as well. While I do have a collection of paid patterns I also have dozens of designs that are free to download.
I first became a blogger when I founded Deal Detecting Diva in June of 2009. After many years teaching others how to be “extreme couponers” I decided to switch gears and follow what my heart really desired: I became a crochet/lifestyle blogger instead. My husband Paul now authors our coupon blog, Penny Pinchin’ Paul.
Since starting Heart Hook Home I have been featured on Country Living, Martha Stewart, in Chickens magazine, Homespun magazine, Wichita magazine and on Little Things. I am thrilled to have reached millions of like-minded fiber enthusiasts!
My husband and I have two boys, ages 10 and 8. Our oldest son Caden has a rare and severe heart defect, Truncus Arteriosus (type 2) that has required three open heart surgeries to date, with a probability of more in the future. He is the reason for the “Heart” in Heart Hook Home. Our youngest son is a LEGO enthusiast, a Beatles lover and an aspiring musician.
