New Summer Headbands

     Be sure to stop by the Shop for some fun new headbands for summer!! I am having so much fun making these and there are many more colors to come. My daughter has been a wonderful model for me these past few days :)

     I am also working on some fun newborn photo props! I am borrowing my friends newborn baby tomorrow to take her pictures in them so be sure to stop by in the next few weeks when they become available.

     My mom and I decided to bring our crochet items to the craft show this fall. I know it is still spring but it takes a while to make each hat (especially with 3 little ones) so we are planning ahead to avoid a last minute panic session of not being ready or having enough product to bring. She will be working on some other crochet items so it should be fun!

     Not much else to type for now. Lots of rain and icky weather here so it has been a good excuse to stay inside and crochet :)

Sneak Peek

     Here is a sneak peek at a few of my new items coming to my shop! I reopened my shop yesterday but won't have the new items listed until this weekend. I am waiting for the CD of images from the photographer and cannot wait to see the other pictures!

     My wonderful friend Gina came with me and let her precious little boy model for me along with my new little bundle of joy. We had such a fun time and the kids were amazing. I think he definitely has a future in modeling :)

     I am hoping in a few months from now if things go well I will make other styles and do another photo shoot. I brought in everything that I had so that there would be a good variety but if you do go and look, please remember that everything is made to order so you are able to customize each hat the way you want with the colors that are available. I am so excited to start making these and hope to see some of the photos taken of the beautiful babies wearing the hats I've created.

Friday Favorites

     So I thought it would be fun to do a new "weekly themed" blog post of a few of my favorite things of the week. I have seen some versions of this on other blogs and have found some cute new things by reading them. goes nothing :)

1. Keurig Coffee Maker

     Well I don't really drink much coffee, decaf every once in a while but they make an awesome Hot Chocolate K-cup and I must admit...I'm addicted. It is so nice to have a hot cup of cocoa in less than a minute instead of taking the time to boil water in my tea kettle and then by the time the water is boiling, my kids need something and the water usually ends up sitting on the stove until it is cold. Gotta love instant :)

2. Blueberry Pancakes

     Since my husband switched shifts at work and is rarely home for dinner, I have had to get creative in cooking for one. When my kids get bigger it won't be so bad, but for right now, they don't usually eat what we eat. So...this was my dinner of choice tonight. I love breakfast for dinner!

3. Vicks Vaporizer

     I know that without this little machine I would not have survived my week! Nothing worse than a newborn with a cold and can't breathe out of her nose :(  All three kids had colds this week and I guess I just couldn't win trying to keep her away from it.

4. My Kindle

     I'll admit, I have downloaded games on my kindle which have been getting more use lately than the books but it has been relaxing. I have been playing a word game every night in bed before going to sleep and it is way more fun than tossing and turning for thirty minutes.

5. Caron Simply Soft Yarn

     The past few weeks I have been a crocheting machine! I think I had mentioned before that I am switching my shop over to crochet baby hats and diaper covers only and I have been making as many hats as my two hands could and had a photo shoot today!! My wonderful friend Gina and her adorable little man came with me and he posed as one of my models. He was so happy and smiling which made it so fun! My new little lady was the other model and I can't wait to see how the photos turned out. I created many new styles with fun, fresh colors and can't wait to show you all.

     Now I am just waiting for the CD to be ready to pick up and then I will open my shop back up and start listing! I can't wait!!! So excited to see what comes my way with the new shop.

     What has been your favorite things this week?

It's a Girl!

     Long time, no blog! But....I think it is with good reason :)  My daughter was born three weeks ago!!! She joins a very excited older brother & sister. She has kept me busy over the last few weeks but I finally feel like we are settling into a routine. After a bit of jaundice, reflux and a minor cold, things seem to be getting better.

     We had a pretty decent snow storm this morning which always makes it a bit harder to get three kids bundled up to go anywhere. Anxiously awaiting Spring!! Can't wait until we can all throw on a pair of sandals and run out the door as is :)

     Currently, my Etsy Shop is on vacation while I enjoy the new addition to our family. I plan to open it up in the next two weeks or so and it will be a bit different than before. I am transitioning it to crochet baby hats and diaper covers only. I have found my love for crocheting again and frankly, I don't have a ton of time for sewing anymore. Crocheting is easy to do anywhere and travels nicely. Eventually, I would like to open up a second shop to sell my nursing covers and nursing pads in but don't want to overwhelm myself right now. I really enjoy making those as well but until the kids get a bit bigger, I am taking a sewing break.

     I have some photo shoots with my hats and a few babies coming up so when the pictures are ready to go, the shop will be back up. I have to say I have missed my shop and all of my friends I have met through there and all of you and can't wait to get back to it. I will definitely post an update when it is up and running so you can check it out!!
