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!

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.

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.
