Catching up a little…



It seems like an explanation of everything that’s happened over the last month and some would just be too much, so here are some random pictures!  There are more I need to download from my phone, and when that will happen…who knows!IMG_3905


A few cards – these will be for sale along with a BUNCH of other stuff at a sale this weekend!



Costume for a friend’s son – he was super cute!

IMG_3987Wait, is that our house???  A clean island???  Yep.  Had to take a picture to document this rare occurrence!




More costumes, for my best friends girls.  They looked SO cute at little Rockford Peaches! (If you don’t get the reference, it’s from A League of Their Own).







Some pumpkin patch fun!



Baby hat for a friend’s photography business.  Really cute photo prop!  Pattern can be found here: Oodles-4-Noodles.



Fun, sneaky learning games with ‘pumpkin day’ colored pom poms!  Wyatt referred to Halloween this year, as Pumpkin Day after reading It’s Pumpkin Day Mouse!



And I did make a costume for my child as well!  He was Buddy the dinosaur from Dinosaur Train.  He liked it and wore it several times – I was so glad – he refused to wear his costume last year.

That’s all for now.  More soon…hopefully!  Blessings!




Well, this new week brings no progress on the craft room – but perhaps today will be the start of it?!

What has been going on the last few days is some manic crocheting!  I’m not sure what happened, but once I found this blog and her patterns, I was hooked (hahaha, no pun intended!)!  If you are a crocheter, you need to check out Micah Makes.  She has the cutest patterns and so many free patterns she’s sharing!


This cup cozy + coaster whipped up in just a few hours.


And these hand sanitizer cozies take even less time!  These are just the first three of about 12 ideas I have to embellish the base pattern.  I had so many I got a box of a bunch of the travel size sanitizer bottles from BJs and I’m going to keep making until I run out.


Wouldn’t these make great back to school gifts, or baby shower gifts, or just, hey – thanks for being my friend (and I know you like to keep things clean…so here’s a cute way to do it!) gifts!?  I’m on a mission to give these all away – I don’t think I’ll have too much of a problem…

Just one more bit of praise for Micah Makes – she has a tips and tricks section – and I FINALLY know how to make a magic circle – she’s got the best step by step, photo tutorial!  Go check it out!
