Sedge Stitch Stocking

-This post Sponsored by Darice-


I love to try out new crochet stitches but I have also found that I have some favorites that I always come back to. One of those is the sedge stitch. I love the texture of it and although I think that the only thing I have shared on my blog, before today, that uses that stitch is a dishcloth pattern, I have used it for other projects too and I always love the look of it. I will have to share some of the other projects I have made with that stitch soon.

Joy Sign- A Quick Christmas Craft

-This post contains affiliate links-


A couple months ago I participated in a Halloween themed round of Craft Lightning, where a bunch of bloggers get together to share quick craft projects that can be made in 15 minutes or less (drying time excluded). This week is the Holiday round and today I am sharing my project. Last time I made a quick little Halloween sign and I really like the way it looked sitting up on my mantel with my other Halloween decorations so I decided to use that as inspiration for this month's project. I used the same kind of small wooden canvas and cut out a Christmasy design with one short word, this time I chose the word Joy.

Thanksgiving Window Cling Decoration

-This post contains affiliate links-


For Halloween I decided to make cut out some window cling to put on our front door. My kids really liked it, especially my youngest daughter who helped me put it up. I finally took it down a couple days after Halloween but I really wanted to put up something new for Thanksgiving. One of my boys requested a turkey so that is what we did. I added some words and a pumpkin too. It is really hard to get decent pictures of the glass door because of the reflections, I think it looks better in person than I can capture but hopefully it gets the idea across.

Thankful and Blessed Wall Hanging

I was playing around with my Cricut the other day and made a little wall hanging for Thanksgiving and I thought I would share it here as a quick project idea. One night last week I got the kids in bed and was waiting for my husband to get home from work. I probably should have been working on writing up blog posts or cleaning my house but it was one of those days that I just wanted to make something. Not necessarily work on a project that I needed to do for some reason, but just sit down and play around with my craft stuff, just to be creative for no other reason than because I like to. This little banner was the result of that late night crafting session.

Crocheted Christmas Elves

-This project sponsored by Fairfield World-


It is time to start thinking about Christmas crafting and this year I made these cute little crocheted Christmas Elves for Fairfield World. They both have little striped shirts and suspenders, pointy hats and pointy ears. The girl has a dress and braided hair too.

Knit Look Crochet Scarf

-This post sponsored by Darice-


I love the look of knitted items but I don't really love to knit. I taught myself and I am such a slow knitter, so as much as I like the look of knit I would rather crochet. This stitch is a perfect because it uses crochet to get a look similar to knit. And the best part is that it is just half double crochet.

Gratitude Journal


With Thanksgiving at the end of the month, November is a time when we often try to focus on being grateful for everything that we have. Whether it be in the form of a gratitude post every day of the month on Facebook, or a family activity where everyone writes down or says what they are thankful for, or whatever else you do to express gratitude throughout the month.
