Hello! Nice to see you! I’m Bethany, a blogger, a crocheter, a writer, a wife, a mama, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  
Want to know more about me? Click here.

I started Whistle and Ivy back in 2012 when I was struggling with my first baby and life as a stay-at-home mom. What I thought was just the “baby-blues” turned out to be much more serious.  I was able to get help with the support of my family, and find healing with my writing! Whistle and Ivy created (and still creates!) a place where I could exist outside of diapers and laundry, and connect with people who share my passions. I truly hope you can find something that brings you happiness here. 

Ready to find your next favorite project? Here are a few of my favorite free crochet patterns to get you started! I hope you enjoy what you find here.
