What Are You Doing? January 2018 blog hop!

Happy 2018! I'm trying to restart this blog hop and find more creative inspirations! I'm doing a simplified blog post to make it easier to join in. You can share whatever creative outlet, and you can share a link from your blog, Instagram or Facebook. 

  • Limit three links per person, please! 
  • I will still pick out my favorite post to share. 
  • I will post this monthly blog hop twice, at the beginning of the month and halfway through the month. And with the three links limit, you have a couple of reminders to join in and share. 

This will be a big motivation for me too! Here is my first crochet item of 2018!

For the fiber artists, you can also join the Linky Ladies Party bi-weekly to share crochet and knit finished projects!

Chile and tomato salad - multicultural week


It's not everyday that I get to dress up in my Chile outfit at work and play guitar. We had a multicultural week at the university that I work at. 

I also had the chance to share a "slice" of the food in Chile. Although it was not empanadas, chacarerro or a completo, it was a refreshing side item to complement any meal.

I made a chilean tomato and onion salad. Silly me didn't take a picture of the finished product. I made the salad the night before, so the tomatoes and onions could absorb the olive oil, lemon and cilantro flavors. Refreshing!

I also found a couple of Chile recipe books. I added them to my Amazon wishlist!

Amazon prime - crochet edition!

I love looking for crochet items on Amazon. Since it is Prime Day today, I wanted to share what is on my crochet wish list. (These are affiliated links 

Yarns


First off is yarn. I can never have enough black yarn, and Amazon has a variety of prices for all colors of the Red Heart Super Saver yarns. 



If you want to try the Red Heart Boutique Unforgettable yarns, here is a deal on Amazon for this lovely color scheme. There is also a deal on Lion Brand Landscapes.



Caron simply soft is one of my favorite yarns because of the truly soft feel and it has a variety of colors. Check this Harvest Red color available for a good price.

Accessories


I have never tried stitch markers before. I always used a colored paper clips that I found at work. This Amazon deal looks like a good buy.



There's always been times where I would have rather has this row counter instead of having to count and recount my rows.

Books


The last two items are books available on Amazon. I love when I can find low cost or even free books on crocheting and different stitch methods. I love a stylist crochet handbag, and this book looks like a good one to try out. 



No crochet order is complete without the purchase of The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs. I have heard so many people talking about how great this book is.

I've been saving a variety of recipes on Facebook and Pinterest, especially ones that involve making a bread or a crust. I don't know when I will find the time to try them out, but I know I will need them one day. I love this idea for Heart Shaped Dinner Rolls from Somewhat Simple and how they provide their favorite dinner roll recipe. They look amazing and so much better than the store bought kind. Thank you for sharing!

Congratulations to the featured blog!

What have I been doing?


As you can see from the blog, I have been busy at work again for the past couple of months. But my husband and I have been creating and testing projects we find online. My husband made me a hanging planter shelf to showcase my surviving plants. 

I am still trying to make vegetables grow. I think we might have some potatoes ready, and I started more red and green peppers. I also tried making puppy chow with tortilla chips and pita chips, but there are no pictures to prove it. I promise I didn't eat them all!
