Emojis and Crochet!

Image
My daughter is almost 9 years old, going on to a 13 year old.  I swear she's already acting like a tween.  Besides her attitute, the fact that she loves sports, and that she's already developing her taste in music, she also gets caught up in the "it" thing, the current Fad if you will.

Right now she loves all things IU (Indiana University - since we live in the college town), Minions and Emoji's.

Indianapolis Children's Museum

Image
If you are looking for a place to travel to with your kids, and you even remotely close to Indianapolis, I highly suggest you make a trip to the Indianapolis Children's Museum.  It is over 400,000 square feet and spread out over 29 acres.   It is THE largest children's museum in the world.

FREE Crochet Pattern for a Rolled Yarn Holder

Image
Anyone who works with yarn know that there are a couple of ways to use it.  You can either take it from the middle of the skein and hope it doesn't get all twisted when you get to the end, or you can roll it in a ball to start, and hope that the ball doesn't roll all over the pace.

To help you with the latter, I've designed a yarn holder that you can use to keep the ball in one spot.  There are some cute ones out there made of clay and such that you can buy, but a true crocheter likes to use what they have.  This is a yarn ball holder, made of yarn!

Flower Fun For All Ages!

Image
For the past couple of years, the Easter Bunny has brought my children little flower pots.  Each year my children hope that they will get them again.  They really have fun with the process of planting, caring for, and watching their flowers grow.

The Easter Bunny finds these particular starter pots  which are only a couple inches high, at Target in the dollar section.  The Easter Bunny loves target for filling easter baskets!  LOL

Daily Goodie Box Review

Image
I finally got a goodie box!  I have been commenting on their Facebook page for a couple months, and I finally lucked out and got one sent to me.  They said it would be about 3-4 weeks before I got it, which was fine by me, because I actually won one!  I feel like it took a while, but in all reality, a couple of weeks isn't that long.

Anyways, it came in the mail the other day, and it was like Christmas morning for me, checking it all out, excited about trying everything, all the while swatting away my children who were trying to grab it all from me.  LOL.

4th of July Crochet Ideas

Image
When you think of summer you think of 4th of July, the cookouts, fireworks and good food are something to be remembered.  This year, why don't you add a little bit of crochet to those amazing memories with one of these amazing patriotic items!

Why You Need To Take a Craftsy Class!

Image
I've used Craftsy for years to buy and sell my patterns.  I always knew there was another feature to it, but had never really looked into it.  There's a huge part of Craftsy, where you can find classes, in video form, for so many different mediums.  There are classes for crocheting (of course), knitting, cooking, quilting, jewelry making, photography, wood work and more!  Seriously, there are so many classes here, that you are bound to find a few that you are interested in!
