This time of year I always start thinking about school supplies, not just for the kids though. It is also the time I pick up things for the kids to use at home, like crayons and markers, and for myself, for my office, like notebooks and pens. Every thing is on sale this time of year and there are so many options available that it is the perfect time to stock up. 

Felted Wool Ball Jewelry

-I was given a sample of this product for review, all ideas and opinions are my own-

Do you have any crafts you want to try but haven't yet? One of those things for me was wool felting. I think the little felted wool balls can be so cute for different projects but I have never tried making them. So, when I got the chance to review a sample box of wool roving from Kraemer Yarns I was really excited to try it out.

Christmas in July: 20+ Free Christmas Crochet Patterns

I know July seems like it is way too early to be thinking about Christmas but I feel like whether it is decor or gifts, if I don't get an early start it doesn't get done. Every year it seems like in November I start thinking of all of the projects I want to make and then between my long list of projects and all of the parties and busyness of the season I end up working on them up to the last minute and still end up only finishing half of the things on my list. Plus some things you want to have ready before Christmas, like advent calendars and decorations, so you can put them out at the beginning of the season. In this post I am going to share some of my favorite 5 Little Monsters Christmas Crochet Patterns.

Vintage Camper Pillow

-This post may contain affiliate links-

In my family growing up family vacations in the summer usually meant camping. I have spent most of my life in the western United States, mostly in Utah and Idaho, where there are mountains and beautiful areas to camp. One year we all saved up our money to buy a camper so we could take that camping with us. I have lots of good memories of taking that camper places with my family. Then when we got the LEGO set I shared in my last post it made me think of that and I decided I wanted to crochet a camper.
