coming soon.

a new store
with lovely things
for all your crafty needs.
i am oh-so-excited
and cannot wait for it to launch.
but, i have a lot of work to do before then
so i best be off

loving : a good read

i may or may not have purchased myself a little birthday present.
i did. heeee

i adore this book, cover to cover.
its full of inspiration, projects, and goals.

On page 19 i read my new 2012 motto:
"A new start enables us to go on our way encourages,
reinvigorated, and determined to dare and do."
-Gustave L. Weinss, 1920

every day is going to be a new start for me
and each day i will dare and do all my dreams and desires.
i think there's something so exciting and perfect about a new start.
i think that's why i love a new year or a new month so much.
but really, each day is a new start.

Pendant Project page update

i've updated the Pendant Project page 
so you can keep updated on what everyone is creating.

meet Kinsey

she's my newest crochet pillow

 Kinsey is made up of the Little Lady Puff stitch
she's a quick and easy pillow to make.
i started her last year
but didn't get around to finishing her
until these past couple days.

she's full of bright colors
and sports 3 polka-dot buttons to boot.

my pillows are getting better each time
and though she has a few flaws
i adore her and so do the littles.
Little Man rolls her across the family room floor
and even Rescued Dog has snuggled up next to her.

what can i improve on next time?
i'm still perfecting button holes.
her buttons are too far apart
and the white of the pillow shows through every once in awhile.
but i'm enjoying her oh-so-much.
round pillows are so fun.
