Pink Crayon Scarf

September 25, 2021 4 Comments
School started at the beginning of this month, and I've got school themed scarves on my mind! Back in 2018, I made my first ever crayon scarf, and it was a pink like this one, but a little different. For that Pink Crayon Scarf, I only used one shade of pink. For this scarf, I used I Love This Yarn Pink and Red Heart With Love Bubblegum. I've also made a Red Crayon Scarf and a couple Purple Crayon Scarves. I wonder what color I should make next... (No pattern available.)

Orchard Table Runner

September 13, 2021 18 Comments
Welcome to the Fall Crafts & Decor Blog Hop! This month my blog friends and I are sharing our Fall themed creations and decor. When I think of Fall, I think of cooler weather, changing leaves, and pumpkins! So I decided to crochet an orchard themed table runner that features pumpkins and apples. I've had the pattern for the table runner in my pattern stash for a long time, and I'm so glad that I finally got around to making it. To create this table runner, I followed the Orchard Sampler pattern by Snappy Tots.

Blue Hats for Hat Not Hate

September 04, 2021 10 Comments
Yesterday, I shipped off some handmade hats for the anti-bullying campaign, Hat Not Hate. Hat Not Hate asks crocheters and knitters to donate handmade blue hats to be distributed to schools. The blue hats are Hat Not Hate's symbol for eradicating bullying. As a mom of two and a former educator, I am all for eradicating bullying, so I searched my yarn stash for blue yarn and got to work.

Fishy Wall Decor

August 17, 2021 14 Comments
Welcome to the August Pinterest Challenge! The purpose of this Pinterest Challenge is to motivate us to not just pin, but to make it happen! Since today is National Thrift Shop Day, we are sharing thrift/upcycle projects. I haven't visited a thrift shop lately, but I recently decided to repaint some fish I purchased from a thrift store a few years ago. I originally bought the fish for my son's nautical nursery, but now he's older and has a Spiderman themed room. So I recently decided to change my kiddos' bathroom from a Mickey Mouse theme with a black Mickey Mouse shower curtain and a black Mickey Mouse shaped rug to a brighter fish theme. So I pulled the fish from our storage shed and got to work repainting them. I also checked Pinterest for inspiration, and I found this pin of cool wooden and ceramic fish.

Buzz... I Made a Bee!

I don't crochet amigurumi projects often, but I was asked by a friend to make a bee. So I did! I searched for a crochet bee pattern on Pinterest, and I found the TikTok Bee pattern. This pattern is awesome because there's also a video. I've been working on using up my many skeins of yarn for a while now, and this project finished off a skein of yellow yarn. Yay!
