Guest Post-Secret Obssesion

Hi I am Jei Crochet from Cavite, Philippines A wife, Mommy to 2 boys, a girl and 2 doggies. I am the author of Cutey Patuty Crochet.  I've been blogging for almost 4 months now. My love of crocheting inspired me to start to blog. I used to watch and read other crochet blogs, I said to my self  "hey! I can make these things!" So I started to teach myself more about crocheting and share things I learned to my readers. My blog name used to be Jeijam crochet, but changed it to Cutey Patuty when my children was watching cartoon and one character said cutey patuty, I said to myself it sounds cute and catchy, so I started using Cutey Patuty Crochet. I picture my blog to have it's own domain name, earning money enough to support our needs, and will be featured on TV! (I wish!), and my blog helped newbie crocheters and bloggers to achieve their goals.

You know I love watching Be Careful With My Heart ( a local telenovela here in the Philippines) and I love the lead actress Jod…
