_Opposites attract or so I have heard often. Opposites can also be very complementary. Kristina and I have been working together for awhile now in our etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/2crochethooks
While Kristina and I are a lot alike, we are also very different.

Kristina loves the beach and ocean, sun and surf, sand and gentle breezes, and her dream home would have her situation as close to the shore as possible.

I think the beach is a great place to visit but definitely not my dream home location.

I am waiting for retirement to move to the mountains! I love the view of the mountains, the beautiful trees and growing things all around me, the ups and downs of the horizon and the chance to have cool summers and some snowy winters.

Kristina is willing to visit me here but not so much interested in living here.

In our creative work, Kristina loves to make hats. She makes so many styles, in so many colors, in so many sizes. She loves the quick, easy projects and the quick sense of satisfaction that her goal was reached. With her busy schedule and two sweet but active younglings, 15 minutes at a time is about all Kristina has to spare!

Kristina is branching out to some other projects as well - headbands, scarves, bags, gloves and more. She is the driving force behind our tarn and plarn projects. As well as running our websites, advertising and researching our suppliers.

She loves to dream up new patterns and then create a new item from those patterns, maybe something not even seen before!

I like bigger projects, ones that take awhile to complete and I don't care if I follow a pattern or create my own. Actually I usually forget to write the pattern down so have to create the item twice lol. With no babies at home and a stay at home type of personality, I can typically devote about 2 hours a night several nights a week to a project. This let's me really spend time working out a pattern whether it's my own or a published one.

Afghans, shawls and other clothing items have my attention right now but that is always subject to change.

Kristina is fashionista too! She loves 50's style clothing and cool, hip and fun fashions like this picture. She loves the swirl of swishy skirts and she typically is wearing skirts except to work, where she does wear jeans or pants.

She loves fun and funky fashions, anime, sprites and fairies and cute and sassy accessories.

Me, blue jeans and tie dye shirts are my fashion choices. I love me some tie dye!! :) I wouldn't know high fashion if it hit me in the head and jumped on my shoulders. I don't even typically use a purse but load up all my pockets. Only thing cool and funky about me is the colors in my tie dye!!

I could go on and on but I just wanted to show a bit of how we are different and yet get along so well. I think we inspire each other, help each other with comfort, suggestions and some great ego boosts when needed and we definitely get more done together than we do apart.

Thanks Kristina for being so awesome!! :)
