I Need a Sugar Rush! Must Have Bonbons!

I'm not talking chocolate or an actual sugar rush here. But what I have to show you today seems to give me the same happy energy as actual chocolate...

Nature's Gifts Book Review

I love leafing through crochet books and dreaming of all the pretty and unique things I could make, who I would make them for, and especially in what COLORS I would make them. How about you?

I have recently received a fun crochet book by the talented Sara Leighton of Illuminate Crochet. It's called Nature's Gifts for Baby and you can find it here.

Catona "Paper" Chain

While brainstorming ideas to motivate my kiddos to do their summer reading, I came up with a little crochet pattern to share with you. I wanted something visual and tangible that allows them to "count" books or minutes read--something that would show progress towards their goal. Thus, the idea of a paper chain--the kind I made in grade school as a child seemed just the ticket! But, rather than running for the paper, I ran for the yarn (of course). A crocheted chain!

Honoring Wink

I've been as busy as ever behind the scenes, crocheting away on some fun little projects. But while doing so, my mind has been heavy with thoughts about the loss of a dear friend to her battle with depression a year ago.

I discovered Wink (Marinke Slump) of the popular blog A Creative Being several years before we crossed paths. After getting acquainted online and having her say the nicest things about my work, she encouraged me to join Design Wars Challenge. She believed in me when I was doubting myself, but I applied. From that experience, I have made some beautiful designs, met many amazing folks and had opportunities for growing my craft and my business in ways I couldn't have imagined. Here are a few designs that came from that fun experience...
