Today was my first day back to work after vacation. Those Mondays are always the hardest!

Yesterday I uploaded all the videos from my trip to YouTube. Just need to update the description and write the blog post for them.

Joey started football today. He did really good in practice and I was so proud of him!!

Finished a couple more rows on the afghan I am crocheting. It is the 2nd in a collection of three I am doing for a friend.

Reviving my Blog!

In the last year I have been told what I should or shouldn’t write on Facebook. The last time was a big eye opener and a reminder that I not only love writing but I have something I need to write about!

This is my safe zone to say what I want. I will not be silenced nor will I stop writing what is on my heart to write. If you want to provide your thoughts, opinions, stories below, please feel free to.

***From today forward*** If you tell me to stop writing about a subject, please know I will write about you to the full extent of my abilities and the subject you are so scared of me writing about!

I look forward to my future adventures and hope you will stay and join me!!

Crochet Heart Pouch

My latest project has been crochet heart pouches.  I started selling them for $3 each.  I thought these were perfect for Valentine’s day.  They are pretty simple to crochet up and look really cute.

Baby Shower Rag Wreath

I have a friend whose daughter is having a baby.  I wanted to do a wreath for her and decided it was a good time to try out the rag wreath.  I have to admit I really like how it turned out.  Although I do need to work on my bows a bit more.  This one is a blue mossy oak, gray and brown color theme.

I plan on making more of these for the next craft show.

Engagement Throw

Tags

, , , , ,

A guy I went to high school with planned out a awesome proposal for Christmas day.  Unfortunately a fire took out the barn where he was storing the lights and other decorations for it.  With help from his friends and family he was able to pull off the proposal and ended up doing it Christmas eve.  I wanted to help them start up their collection of memories and so I made an engagement throw.
