My name is Erica Dietz and I live in Salt Lake City, Utah with my husband and 5 young children. I grew up in a home where my mom was always making things. She taught me to sew and crochet at a very young age. For as long as I can remember I have loved creating things and now I share the things that I make on my blog 5 Little Monsters. I have always loved sewing but in recent years I have found it harder to find time to sit at my sewing machine and sew, so even though I still love sewing and do a lot of it, over the last few years I have discovered a love of crochet. The portability of a crochet project is perfect for my life as a mom of little kids. I love that I can do it anywhere, any room in the house, while we are watching a movie, at the park while the kids play, even waiting in the car in the car to pick my son up from school. I enjoy other crafts too, on my blog I share a lot of crochet patterns, some sewing tutorials , a little bit of embroidery, and more.
