5 Little Monsters

Personalized Water Bottles


Summer Camp Season is in full swing at our house. Our kids have day camps through their school as well as through a community center and so far we have had a camp of some kind every week since school got out. This week our 4 oldest have all had camp. Next week it will be Cub Scout day camp for our 8 year old. They need to bring water bottles with them each time whether for lunch or just to have with them throughout the day, and with lots of kids at the camps everything needs to be labeled with their names.

Blush Baby Bonnet

A few weeks ago I was sent some yarn to review from Appalachian Baby. It was kind of fun to try out something new and the colors were so soft and pretty, perfect for a baby. The first thought that popped into my head when I saw it was baby bonnet, so that is what I decided to make and now I am sharing the pattern with you.

Pop Blocks Baby Blanket


For a while now I have been wanting to try making a blanket with two colors of the striped cake yarns (Caron Cakes, Bernat Pop, Lion Brand Mandala, etc) alternating colors each row or round. I thought it would be kind of fun to see how the color changes happened between the two colors. I finally got around to actually trying it and this blanket is the result.

Every month I usually participate in a craft challenge with a group of creative blogger friends. Every month we have a different theme based on a material. Some months it is really easy to think of a project using the assigned material and some months are hard. This month was one of the hard ones. I think it ended up being hard for everyone and that combined with the craziness of the end of the school year led to cancelling the challenge this month. I had already made my project and as hard as it was to decide what to do I was actually pretty happy with how it turned out. Especially since it meant trying something new, something that I had been wanting to try for a while but hadn't gotten around to.

Embellished Baby Hats: Monster and Dinosaur

Last week I posted a teddy bear hat that I made by embellishing loom knit hats with crocheted ears and mentioned that it was the first in what was going to be a series of embellishments to add to baby hats. This is the second post in that series, how to turn a basic loom knit or crocheted hat into a monster or dinosaur hat.

Today I am participating in another round of Craft Lightning, this time with the theme of "Wood". We were challenged to make a wood project that takes 15 minutes or less, excluding drying time. I thought this one would be a piece of cake but I had a hard time figuring out a project. I had another project in mind and it was a total fail. I had to scratch that idea and come up with a plan B.

Friday night family movie night is something my kids look forward to every week. I'm not sure if it is the movie that they are watching or the fact that they get to stay up late that they look forward to the most but whichever it is, they love it. As a result it is always fun when a new family friendly movie comes out, like Peter Rabbit, which came out earlier this month.
