what i made this weekend: gypsy crochet headband pattern

Want to know what I did this weekend? Nothing but crochet projects. I just get that bug sometimes and after a cray-zay few weeks (of 6…yes six site launches!),  all I want to do is nothing but mind-numbing activities like gorge on Pinterest, crochet my heart out and pretend there… Read More→


pinterest inspired: bedroom shelf

This weekend I finished up a project I’ve been working on for a while. This was a “pinspiration” from way back when I first discovered Pinterest. This was the original pin I saw… I just loved that wooden ampersand so I pinned that pin hard. ;) I looked at my… Read More→


what i made this weekend: market bag & chunky basket

This last weekend I got all crafty and couldn’t seem to get crocheting out of my system. I just get that bug sometimes, you know? I’ve been stalking Pinterest (as per usual) for cute patterns and found this one for a basket from Crochet In Color: via I always… Read More→


what I made this weekend: swimsuit season smoothie

Don’t you just love smoothies? We love smoothies in our house. They’re quick and easy to make and (can be) good for you. And teenage boys can whip up a smoothie all on their own in no time flat. I love those recipes the best. Summer is upon us and a good healthy… Read More→


what I made this weekend: afghan quilt

This weekend was a perfect stay-at-home-curled-up-with-a-ball-of-yarn type of weekend. It rained on and off and there weren’t a ton of things on the agenda. So I had some time to enjoy a few cups of tea and one of my favorite pastimes…crocheting. Really, that title should be “What I Continued Working… Read More→

Ruffled Tote

what i made this weekend: altered tote

I love to up-cycle. This weekend I took a free tote I got at Blissdom from GoGo Squeez (Sorry GoGo Squeez…hope you dont mind. Still love your applesauce. ;)) and altered it with some old tee shirts and fabric remnants. I really didn’t follow any hard and fast project tutorial…. Read More→


what i made this weekend

What do you do on the weekends? Run your errands? Veg out on the couch? Attend your kids’ sporting events? A little of everything? Me, I like to relax. I’m a homebody, so a day spent fartin’ around the homestead is fine by me. And after a week spent in… Read More→


other passions

I love technology and the digital life. Its my livelihood and my passion. But unless I want to go bonkers from having my nose constantly stuck in my Mac Book Pro, I have to have other pass times…pass times that are more tangible in nature. Its good for my soul,… Read More→
