Scraptastic

Yesterday I got the itch to work on some small projects to corral masks for myself and the kids. Our entryway is SUPER tiny, so making the most of my space is important. Additionally, since my space is SOO tiny, keeping it organized is a must. Disorganization looks like a huge mess. I made threeContinue reading “Scraptastic”

Virtually Normal

I’ve had a busy couple of days with no real “progress” on my main projects. But its all good stuff!

But just the line-by-line numbers adding up properly, centered, justified, andContinue reading “Deep Winter Pattern”

Furls Streamline Wood Hook Meets the Easiest Hat Ever

I’ve been hearing the hype around the Furls hooks for a while. To be honest, I have enough redundant hooks and spending money on hooks I already own seems a bit wasteful. I have a ton of the Clover soft touch ergonomic hooks in the sizes I use most, and they work just fine forContinue reading “Furls Streamline Wood Hook Meets the Easiest Hat Ever”

Deep Winter

It is the first full week of February. Normally, we would be in the throws of some very cold weather, at least a couple snow storms with accumulation under our belt, and a desire to see spring. Yet the week started with unseasonably warm temperatures, and the only winter precipitation we’ve had has been slush.Continue reading “Deep Winter”
