    To say “You’ve come a long way, Baby!” Would be an understatement. I found you while I was going through some stuff and it was your upbeat wackiness that sucked me in at first. I knew you had not always been that smiling happy fellow… You are so kind, helpful and considerate. I feel very Blessed to have found you and it appears that you have been very Blessed by finding all of us Happy Hookers. I found you and The Crochet Crowd in the beginning of your journey and I am not going anywhere. I pray for continued success and happiness for you and Diva Dan.

    Mikey you’re in such a better place now. I’ve been watching your youtube videos way before you got the Crochet Crowd rolling. You’re an inspiration to all and a positive roll model. You always make me laugh with your little head jerk saying “mmm hmm.” I love all your teaching videos. Without you teaching them I would never believe I could make the red and white snowflake throw. I’m almost done making it. I’m slow lol. I will always be grateful for all the information and inspiration you give. Btw I never saw the video postings of the times you were down. I’ve been there, but learned how to handle myself when I got that way. Watching you go through those times, I hope someone was there to hug you and support you. I know you’re in a better place now. I always look forward to your postings.

    I realized today exactly why I have been glued to this site since finding it. It would take me a small novel to explain my thanks. So I’ll say briefly thank you for stating what should have been obvious to me about my life, and through your tutorials, giving me the ability and confidence to forge my way. I will sound ridiculous now but you helped to change the way I think and I sincerely thank you.

    Mikey, don’t look back. Look at what you have become NOW, what you have accomplished in a few years. You are my star! Watching your videos I learnt to crochet once again (after years I did not touch a crochet hook) and I found inspiration … and joy … and fantasy to create nice things! I owe you for this. You are larger than life. Be proud of that!

    I don’t have any words to express the emotions that brought out in me but I’m so thankful you shared that, and so glad that you found your way through those days. I would give you a huge hug if I could. You are a huge inspiration and it’s because you’re real and you share yourself with us instead of just presenting a facade and for me that’s incredible.

    Isn’t it amazing how great victories are just on the other side of great pain? I remember seeing some, if not all, of those videos at the time they were posted. My heart ached for you. I also remembered seeing a video where yo u were being very low-key about some decorations you had made due to the disapproval of someone who was important in your life at the time. I’m so glad you don’t have to deal with that any more.

    All of us are broken inside at some time(s) in our life. Thanks for the reminder that “This, too, shall pass.”

    Thank you for sharing. I remember my down time and I thank God for the questioning, crying and counseling that got me thru. You are stronger and I know in my heart those videos did help someone as your crochet videos help me now. Pain is real and just wanting to be heard is very important.

    Thank you for sharing your video. I have loved The Crochet Crowd since a friend told me about you a year ago. The lesson you shared about life is a hard one for some people to learn. I’m thankful that you learned it and have moved on with your life and have given back to others by creating a great place to hang out and crochet. Your video reminded me of my daughter and her path to recovering who she is. Love you and your work.

    Mikey, this makes me want to give you a huge hug of comfort, and of congratulations and pride. I don’t know you personally, of course, but I’m SO proud of how far you’ve come, how much you’ve changed your life, and opened your heart. You’re a fine man, Mikey, and I wish you and Diva Dan all the love and joy life can bring.
