Banjo Kazooie


This was a Christmas present that I finally finished this past weekend. I felt so bad, and I was so relieved to get it done. But boy was it a bear, no pun intended, to make! It wasn't necessarily difficult, but there were so many pieces and parts to make it just plain fiddly!

Throwback Thursday


Hey everyone, I'm throwing back to this past Thanksgiving. I realized I never posted our table and our first shibori-ish project... probably because my mom and I were slightly bummed about the final result. Don't get me wrong, I love how our table looked, but our napkins and runners got a little washed out in the washing machine. Live and learn, right? Here's some more pictures though:

Crocheted Potholders


My mom had been not-so-subtly hinting she wanted potholders for Christmas, so I found a couple of patterns on Ravelry and made them as a little set.

Happy Tuesday friends! Today I thought I'd try a more abstract route... Does this feel cold and windy to you? Brrr!!!

Hope you all have a warm and cozy day!

Tuesday, Wednesday... close enough right? I love opening the curtains in the morning and seeing where the sun is starting to shine!

Hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

Sunday Smiles


Today I repotted my 12 baby succulents that I propagated from one of my plants. (You can see them way back here!) They all survived (knock on wood!) and almost all of them have dropped the leaves that they grew from. I got the tiny little terra cotta pots and the hexagon dish at Hobby Lobby, making a pretty cute and functional little set up! I'm hoping they'll be much happier in their own little homes.

I'm learning to find joy in small accomplishments like this, especially when I have several bigger projects that aren't completed yet. In my mad crafting dash to Christmas I was unable to finish a a gift and am still struggling to see the light at the end of the crochet tunnel. But I think continually plugging away at it, and finding time to finish other small projects at the same time will allow the positive creative juices to keep flowing! That's the plan at least!

What's been making you smile?

Boo of Boo and Baa


I absolutely love the Boo and Baa books by Olof and Lena Landstrom (which aren't easy to find!)! For Christmas I made a Boo doll to give with Boo and Baa Get Wet, with the help of a (free) Shaun the Sheep pattern by Abigail Gonzalez.

Happy Tuesday! I woke up this morning to the lake all frozen over! Finally! (Fingers crossed it stays this way!)

Have a good one my friends!

Unicorn (and Happy New Year!)


Happy New Year friends! I still can't believe we're already into 2016! In wishing you a happy New Year, I thought I'd share this unicorn I made for Christmas since I hope everyone's year is going to be a magical one filled with lots of fun and surprises!
