June 6, 2011 Creative Connections ~ Guest: Drew Emborsky a.k.a. The Crochet Dude

Next week is all about getting creative. We'll be talking about everything creative from problem solving to gift giving, wrapping, plain ol' fun and more! Drew Emborsky, The Crochet Dude, will be joining us for this tribute to our right brain. He's fun and full of interesting ideas and practical advice. So be sure to tune in as we pick his brain and solute our own right brain then sprinkle the show with tips and ideas.

Drew Emborsky, aka The Crochet Dude®, was taught to crochet at age five by his mom while snowbound in Lake Tahoe. After studying fine art in college and doing the "starving artist" thing for a few years, he found solace in crocheting for charity while grieving the passing of his mother. It was during this time with the charity group that he became know as "The Crochet Dude", which then led to the launch of his wildly popular blog in 2005. 

Drew blogs and creates from his studio in Houston, TX with his cats Chandler and Cleocatra.
