I can't believe that summer is almost here. My kids only have a couple of weeks of school left before they are out for summer vacation. So with spring holidays over and summer just around the corner I have been trying to switch my crafting focus to summer crafts. 

Crocheted Dice or Trinket Bags 3 Ways

A few years ago I shared a new crochet hat pattern of mine on Facebook. In the comments someone shared how they used that pattern with a thinner yarn and turned it into a little dice bag. It turned out really cool and I have kind of wanted to try making one ever since. 

Notebooks with Iron On Designs

 Iron on is probably my favorite material to use with my Cricut. Most of the time I use it to make things like shirts, bags, and other fabric items. But, you can actually use iron on on a lot of different types of surfaces besides fabric, like wood, paper, cardstock, cork, and more.

I rarely buy a new skein of yarn just because I like it. I usually only buy new yarn when I have a specific project in mind and I typically go to the store looking for exactly what I need. I'm not a very impulsive buyer, but every once in a while I see some yarn that I wasn't planning on buying but I immediately picture in my mind the perfect project and decide I have to get it. Then sometimes I bring that yarn home and start working on that perfect project only to find that I kind of hate it, the project not the yarn, like maybe that wasn't the perfect project for that yarn after all.

I cannot believe it is already May. This year seems to be flying by, but maybe that is just me. But a new month means another Team Creative Crafts collaboration. I really enjoy these challenges because it forces me to come up with something that I would probably not otherwise think to do. This month's theme is Tie Dye.

Hats with the Cricut Hat Press

I had the opportunity to try out the new Cricut Hat Press and I had a lot of fun with it. I enjoyed choosing designs for the hats and then actually making them. I have tried making hats in the past and it was super tricky. Trying to deal with the curved shape of the hat was a big challenge. 

Ukraine Shirts and Bracelets

My 9 year old daughter is one who feels things very deeply and is very sensitive to things going on around her. But even knowing that I don't think I really anticipated how much she would be affected by the war in Ukraine. Ever since she found out about what was happening she has been very concerned about the people there. She prays for them regularly and talks to us about it a lot. I know that she wishes there was more she could do to help.
