On my needles: Odele by Amy Christoffers / Berroco

Welcome back! It’s been a little while! Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. I did and was pretty busy holiday crafting. If you follow me on IG, you will have noticed this lol. I started the Odele top in the Summer of 2019 and have to say that I, unfortunately, neglected it soon thereafter. That’s…

My Holiday Decor

Christmas has to be my most favorite holiday with Thanksgiving being a close second.  This year is special for my family and I because this will be our first Christmas spent in our new house.  The last seven years were spent in a home that my family has owned since my grandparents bought it some…

Crocheted Pouf & a free pattern for it!

I’m pretty sure we’ve all seen these knitted and crochet poufs everywhere…Target, Marshall’s, Walmart…you get the idea.  Some of them actually come with a hefty price tag while others are more reasonably priced but smaller in size.

Move over Craftsy- there’s a new (er) kid in town…

When Craftsy was born, I thought (and still do think) that they have changed the crafting world for the better.  Prior to Craftsy, I relied on YouTube and Internet searches to find technique related tutorials. Don’t get me wrong- while I still rely on YouTube and internet searches and am very thankful for all the…

All that glitters…

I love it when I get an order through my Etsy shop for these fun decorated initials. This order was done in all silver glitter per my customer’s request. I love how they turned out!!  Makes a bit of a mess but nothing a wet paper towel couldn’t wipe up. However, I definitely recommend layering…
