Announcing The Alex Beanie Crochet-A-Long!

Hello! It's been a little while, hasn't it? Recently I moved and with the move was a lot of stress both physically and mentally. As most of you know, I have several chronic illnesses and it has been hard balancing the move, unpacking and keeping up with designing, social media and filming/editing videos for my YouTube channel, plus regular daily life of a mommy, doctor appointments, and naps so I've not been around much on social media and I've not had any time to blog lately, but things are starting to get back to normal and I'm starting to feel like a human being again, at least a little bit. And to celebrate, I have a huge announcement to make!

KT And The Squid Yarn Review

Yarn. There are all kinds that you can buy. Big box store, local yarn store, online hand dyers, the list goes on. What kind of yarn do you like to buy? I love all kinds. For me, some projects work great with big box store yarn and some work better with a more luxury style yarn. I also love that when you purchase from an online hand dyer, you are supporting a small business.

Verilux HappyLight Lucent Review

This morning I woke up a little late (thanks to summer vacation and the kiddo is at home) rolled out of bed, with the frizziest bed hair I might add, and hobbled to the bathroom. I took my morning medications with a bottle of water, grabbed my phone and headed downstairs to check my messages in front of my HappyLight by Verilux.

Small Bow Free Crochet Pattern

Hello! One week ago today, this sweet girl came into my life. Her name is Rapunzel aka Elle and she is a Fuzzy Holland Lop. I love her so much already. She is incredibly sweet and smart (she is already little trained after a few days) and she loves to cuddle with me. She's not very big so she sits up near my shoulder and she gives me kisses on my cheeks, which tickle quite bad but I don't mind.
