So Manly! Cellphone Sleeve

My husband has been toting around an iPhone for work lately.  The way he has been tossing it is casually in his computer bag makes me cringe.  I mean, shouldn’t it get a little bit of protection?  It is naked after all! I then came up with this cellphone sleeve that is fit for a […]

Adding Embellishments

I’ve made so many of my Easy Peasy Pacifier Clips that I’m looking for ways to make them more interesting.  I started with a dozen or so color combinations and have moved on to adding embellishments. My favorite color combo has been this maroon and white for Texas A&M with my “12th Man Teddy” clip. […]


Clothespin Reindeer Ornament

Once upon a time, a popular craft with children was a reindeer made of wooden clothespins, googly eyes, and tiny pom-poms.  I have to say I haven’t really seen them in about 15 years or so though.  In an attempt to bring the cuteness back, I have put a few together myself! Only a few […]


Easy Peasy Pacifier Clip

My little Peanut was born earlier this year, and he has successfully kept me from blogging until now.  He hasn’t entirely kept me from crocheting however.  Instead, I have turned in my amigurumi for baby patterns. My friends have had a baby boom this year as well.  With so many babies on my mind, the […]

Adventure Baby! Newborn Aviator Hat

The itch to create a new project set in over Thanksgiving, and a few hours later a cute baby hat was born. I was impressed with the interest in my tiger hat pattern.  It only made sense to offer this hat pattern as well.  You can download the pdf pattern for free by clicking the […]

DIY Wine Cork Name Cards

I was married last year and boy what a DIY adventure that was!  I just went through some things and found a DIY name card project that I would love to share.  We had our rehearsal dinner at a French bistro and used the wine theme for our place settings.  I used wine corks that […]

Yarn in the Kitchen

My household is becoming a haven for urban hippies- We have been trying to eat more produce, particularly local produce, and we have attempted to do at least a little to reduce waste.  Both came together so perfectly in a couple of crochet projects I’ve adopted. I stumbled across a pattern from Oh the Cuteness! […]


Yarn Junkie

I haven’t posted in a while, but I have still been a busy yarn junkie!  My yarn has been piling up in random places in the house to the point where I figured it was time to buy it a new home.  Luckily, JoAnn Fabrics is having a huge sale on baskets this week. I […]


Big Kitty! Tiger Hat

It only took me a few months, but I finally completed my first crochet pattern!  My pattern is the Tiger Hat that I showed back in April. The pattern is available for free in pdf format from this site:  Click here to download If you try it out and have questions, feel free to email […]

DIY Mason Jar Soap Pump

Recently my husband did a magical renovation to our guest bath.  It turns out that you can indeed build cabinet doors yourself… or at least he can.  When he did finished the construction, I swooped in to decorate.  What we ended up with was a beautiful shabby chic (and very girly) cottage bathroom. The finishing […]
