Spring has Sprung!

Spring has Sprung!

Well, with a high of 83 today, I think it’s safe to say that Spring has officially sprung here in Texas. It has been an unusually mild winter – I don’t think I ever even took out my real winter coat, I just got by on jackets. But even though it has been mild, it’s … Continue reading

Double the Love…

As I stated in my last post, I went to Houston, TX for the weekend for my husband’s identical twin sisters’ double wedding shower. First I have to tell you about my little adventure getting there. Those that know me know that I am extremely directionally challenged. Our GPS decided it didn’t want to plug … Continue reading

Crocheting with Friends

Crocheting with Friends

This week I’ve had the pleasure of teaching my friend Joanna how to crochet! Unfortunately I was too busy having fun to remember to take any fun pictures (grr!). I’ve never been one to take pictures — I’ve had to be very intentional about taking pictures for my previous blog posts. I’m trying to get … Continue reading

Biggest Project to Date…

Since I got my new yarn, I knew I wanted to make a blanket. I was a little hesitant at first to actually make a blanket out of this yarn, because the colors really don’t match my living room decor at all. But I ultimately decided, who cares? This will be MY special blanket. One … Continue reading

Since I’m currently a stay-at-home wifey, I’m trying to be more domestic. This doesn’t come as naturally as some of you may think. I don’t really enjoy cooking or cleaning. But I’m trying. Trying to make home a happy place for DH to come to. Trying to cheer the place up, since we currently live … Continue reading

Since I am relatively new to crochet (I’ve really only been doing it since last November), I need to be upfront and say that I definitely don’t know how to do everything yet, so projects I post on here are probably not going to be, let’s say, Etsy worthy. But maybe we can learn from … Continue reading

Since my little venture into crochet, I have been hugely inspired by Lucy of Attic24. Whether you crochet or not, you should follow her blog! (It’s on my list to the right.) Lucy is a stay at home mom in the UK who has a way with words, pictures, and a crochet hook. When I … Continue reading

Crochet Talk

Today was a wonderful day of playing hooky. I mean this here in the literal way — see, even though I have a Master’s degree, I am currently unemployed. Well, sort of. I do teach some voice lessons and babysit, but right now I don’t have a “real” job. I am actively searching though….anyone need … Continue reading

Hello!

Hello!

Phew! It’s been about 5 years since I’ve blogged. I used Xanga then, and WOW, a lot has changed as far as what it takes to personalize a blog! But I’m here, and while I hope to figure out how to make some more changes to my new little space, I’m ok with this as … Continue reading
