I had big crochet plans for December but unfortunately I did not accomplish much last month... I lost my mojo early in December and took a long break from crocheting. Usually I take a break for a week or two and then I'm refreshed and ready to go, but this time, it turned into a… Continue reading Best Laid Plans
As I try my best to keep up with the CALs that I listed in my "So many CALs, so little time" post (and not doing a very good job at it, lol), I've discovered additional Christmas CALs and other advent calendar events this week.

If the size needs to be adjusted slightly, then it may be possible to do that by changing the yarn weight (i.e., using worsted… Continue reading Resizing amigurumi is not an exact science
Hope everyone is having a safe and fun Halloween! My favorite game over the past few years has been Don't Starve Together (I know, this isn't a blog about games but it does have a crafty tie-in) and Klei, the developer of the game, is giving away free in-game skins for anyone who submits… Continue reading Happy Halloween
Welcome to my blog! I started this blog as an outlet for any and all craft-related thoughts that run through my mind. My husband and teenage son are not interested in crafts so I try not to bore them to tears with too much detail, although I am not always successful at summarizing what I… Continue reading Yay, first post!
