Featured post of the week:




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!


Now it's your turn! What have you been doing this week?

10 FREE Crochet Hearts Patterns for your Valentine

Links to this post
Valentines Day is here, and I wanted to put together a list of 10 FREE crochet heart patterns that are easy to make and adds a personality to your gifts and decorations. These patterns are great to decorate a gift, to add to a festive banner, or to decorate your home.



June Gilbank from PlanetJune created 4 different types of heart shapes to choose from, each with its own pattern. I think the large puffy hearts can be made into a lovely banner.
Here's a lovely granny square heart crochet pattern from Undisthreadness. this is done in cotton thread, but it can easily be created using worsted yarns.

You can add a crochet granny heart to chains and make a lovely choker.

Or add granny hearts to a crochet basket to give goodies to your little one.

New Year's Reevaluations

Links to this post

Every new year is a time to reevaluate the progress of your life. I have been learning that as I get older, you can't just drop what you don't like and try something new. 
Changing an old routine is getting harder to do. It takes more persistence to take something a different direction. For example, changing you exercise routine (or in my case, exercising in a new gym, at a different location and a different time). I keep making large changes in my life, and I hope they stick with me through the year and to the next year.

I love fall! This is when all the crafties come out to play from their pillow forts. I admit it's more difficult for me to crochet when the heat is making me sweat. That's why I love the cooler days and nights in Florida. 
Sunset Magazine home decor inspiration. Don't forget to take some me time for yourself!
I have a soft spot for succulents and gardening, so when I saw Lolly Jane's succulent hack I had to read it. What better way to recycle that use not-so-ordinary items as potting plants. Thanks for sharing this hack, Lolly Jane! 

Congratulations to the featured blogs!

What have I been doing?


It's my favorite time of the year when the Fall colors come out, and today Florida finally feels like there is a change in the air. We're one month and 2 days away from our wedding, and we've checked off more things off the wedding list last month.  What really helped me out is that my parents sat us down and really talked and helped us think about what we wanted to have. I had plenty of lists to look at, but not enough direction that I needed. My parents have been a lot of help too with the decorating. Sometimes I feel like I want to drop everything and run the other way, but I know there's only so little to go and more things to do. And with Lorenzo's family coming from Brazil and other parts of the state, we have a lot to look forward to in a month. I plan to catch up with sleep all December!

Here's a picture of my birthday lunch last month. With all the fun on my birthday, all I could think about was decorations!
