  • Shoddy Seamstress Adventures: Pouf.

    It is currently Saturday morning. Which in and of itself, is a neutral statement. However, I started writing this post on Wednesday, a planned power outage interrupted me, and I have not made the space to finish this post until now. This is one of my best sewing projects ever. EVER. I’ve been wanting an […]

  • Pom-Pom Wreath

    As a knitter, crocheter, and spinner, I constantly find myself with odds and ends of yarn. I guess I could throw out all those little pieces, but my pragmatic side doesn’t want it to just go into a landfill. As a parent, I’m always looking for ideas to occupy the kids: without screens. My son […]

  • 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 three […]

  • emPower Cowl: Crochet

    emPower Cowl: Crochet

    The emPower People craftivism initiative sums up my personal beliefs rather succinctly. I believe symbolism carries heft, a visual signifier of the kind of person you are. I am very selective about the symbolism I choose to adorn myself with. Making, and wearing, this cowl isn’t a flippant decision to make the new “it” thing. […]

  • Working for the Weekend

    This week starts a new chapter for us, virtual learning. Our oldest started first grade this past Monday, and it is going well. She is has been super independant and LOVING how grown she is with her very own Chromebook (on loan from the school). Every day she wakes up and asks if its time […]

  • Pookie

    The Owlbear Snuggle Beast Worlds Collide I’m pretty new to actually playing Dungeons & Dragons (D&D). During my last D&D session, my adventuring party was given a slightly magical Owlbear Snuggle Beast by an NPC (non-player character). When the DM (Dungeon Master) put up a (picture of a) vinyl figurine of the Owlbear, I nearly […]

  • Free (Not A)Pattern: C2C Cupcake Throw

    As of this morning, I officially have NO active projects. Old WIPS don’t count, by the way. I finished my C2C blanket for a friend, and it looks AWESOME! The only thing left to do is wash it and mail it! Since learning the C2C technique back in April, this is my 3rd throw/blanket. It […]

  • The Unassuming Hat

    Have you ever found a pattern that you don’t get bored knitting? Usually I dislike making the same thing twice (or more) but honestly, I’ve knit this hat 4 times already. I have plans to make at least 2 more (similar to the white long brim one). The first two knits of this hat I […]
