elephant (crochet)

Leave a Comment
I'm on an animal crochet kick, so after I finished my giraffes, I started on these elephants! The first one turned out cute - and I thought after the practice the second one would turn out better...nope! It was a minor disaster. It may be hard to see it in the pic, but the green elephant is all sorts of wrong, crooked ears, too loose stitches, and more crookedness. I never said I was Martha Stewart!


I've started making natural soy candles in these 6 ounce tin cans. They are incredibly fragrant (Pearberry, Bergamot and Mandorin) and have a clean burn! I'll give them a pretty wrap and they will be available for purchase at shows, would make sweet gift sets!

craft room

I've waited an entire year to do this, I finally laid out my new craft room! This past year we found ourselves flipping a house down our street - what an adventure! - and so I put off growing my craft business. In the meantime, my mind was working fervidly - dreaming and planning for the 2015 year. My ETSY shop will open soon where natural, handmade soap will be available for purchase; more of my handmade products will also be available for purchase at crafts shows in Northeast Ohio! This includes pretty pillowcases with crochet edging, scented soy candles, crochet washcloths and more!
Check the SHOWS tab for updates.
First, I had to clear out the existing workout room and move it to another -
 that was a workout itself...for my husband:)
Here is the display setup - now it's time to work on filling it up!
The setup for shows will be a bit larger.

                                                     oops! need to iron that! ^

My little sewing station and alternate place to wrap soap:)

I love my cotton yarn supply! I go through it quickly making cute things:) 

        I thought for sure I would've filled this closet 'til the door was busting, but I was surprised to find it pretty empty! Brandon built the shelves for me:)

And my beautiful pile of cotton fabric - for dainty pillowcases with pretty crochet trim!

stripey giraffes

I just finished these cutey patutey crochet giraffes: the one on the right is for my niece, Samantha, I hope she loves it!

I used this FREE pattern and this is my first project using the cotton yarn from Mo Marlon in Israel, of CrochetObjet. These are really pleasant and easy to work with and are available in 70 gorgeous colors! I want to share the joy and highlight her shop because of the quality of her yarn and extraordinary service.

This one is for our baby nursery:)

 Now on Instagram, follow me to see what happens behind-the-scenes!

 Counting my blessings this Thanksgiving.
Something I strive to do every day God grants me breath!
Zumba, our daily bread, completing our house project down the street, my husband!

Serving in children's ministry, my job for the past 8 years, family together,
my crafts and the joy they bring!

>>But while these are good things from above, I'm most thankful for the life I have in Jesus Christ.
 The more I know Him, the more my heart wants to explode with thanksgiving...
a thankful heart is a happy heart:)

(Noro) fingerless gloves

Leave a Comment
Bring on the cold! I made these fingerless gloves more than a month ago and only just now posting. I've discovered (and splurged on) the lovely NORO brand yarn. This is Silk Garden #364 in Brown, Wine and Cream; it's part silk, mohair, wool, totally soft and lovely!
