#CraftBlogClub Secret Santa 2018

Hello readers! As a crafter, I am happy to say that the holidays are OVER! This year I took on the challenge of crocheting blankets for some of my family members.

Project Round-Up: July 2018

During the summer, it feels like I'm constantly being pulled all over the place. My brother is a Marine, and when he was able to come home a little bit this summer, you bet my mom went into planning mode for family get togethers.

Celebrate Your Love of Ice Cream (Guilt Free)

It's National Ice Cream Month and you bet I'm going to be enjoying a cone or two.

#ThrowbackThursday: Meowth! That’s Right!

I'm currently dating someone who loves Pokemon. While I'm a fan of the series, it's obvious I'm way more casual about it. Anyway, since we moved in, I have thought it would be fun to turn our home into the Poke Center. It'll be a lot of work on my end, but it gives me a lot of creative freedom. I decided to make Meowth first since we do have a cat in the apartment and I was also thinking of one that I made back in 2010.

Either way, it feels like a good day. Last week I received a crochet project journal that I ordered through … Continue reading Journal Review: My Crochet Project Journal

Plant Something You Can’t Kill (free pattern)

I also binge watched A LOT of Criminal Minds on Netflix. Pinterest was a big help to me over the weekend as I looked for inspiration and patterns. As I … Continue reading Plant Something You Can’t Kill (free pattern)

#ThrowbackPatternThursday : Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

I've been crocheting since 2009/2010 when I found an extremely helpful book in the high school library. Crochet became my go to for present making. Birthdays, weddings, Christmas, you name it. Around May 2010, I crocheted my friend Anaiza the four ninja turtles for her birthday. Yeah, we're a little old for dolls, so what? … Continue reading #ThrowbackPatternThursday : Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
