I have been in sort of a crochet funk lately. I have just been having such a hard time wanting to work on things and getting projects done, especially bigger projects. I think when I get to that point one of the best things is to make something small. Something that I can finish quick and feel that satisfaction and accomplishment that comes with finishing a new design.

Easy Vinyl Embellishments for a Play Kitchen

One of my favorite things about being a crafter is that my kids think I can make anything. Sometimes their requests are a little more than my abilities can manage but a lot of times I try to make it work. One of the simpler things I was asked to to involved my daughter's play kitchen.

I have mentioned a few times before my daughter's recent diagnosis with Type 1 Diabetes. She has been super amazing through all of it and hardly ever complains about all of the pokes. Instead she has been pretty fascinated by all of it and feels like it is something special about her.

A couple months ago HP sent me a fun little package that included an HP Sprocket Printer that instantly prints little 2" x 3" photos from your smartphone. They also sent me a pen caddy with slots to add photos printed with the Sprocket.

Last week Cricut announced a new product line, Infusible Ink. It is pretty cool stuff and I was really excited when I came home from running errands later that day to a surprise box on my porch filled with all sorts of Infusible Ink awesomeness.

A Creative Legacy

Creativity is such an important part of my life and I often think about how grateful I am to have grown up around so many people who valued and exemplified creativity. Through their example I learned the importance of being creative, and was able to develop my own talents and the desire to always try new things. 

Contrast Faux Pocket T-Shirts

I really love all of the vinyl and iron on choices that you can find now. One of my favorites is patterned vinyl and iron on, the patterns can be so cute and fun, but sometimes I have a hard time knowing how to use it best. The bigger the pattern the harder it is for me to figure out what project to use it in because I want to make sure you can see that pattern, while also not distracting from the design that I cut out.

Textured Newborn Baby Hat

While I was at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago I decided to pick up a tiny little ball of yarn, Yarn Bee Lil' Dollop. It was one of those times I bought yarn without a specific project in mind, it was just something I had never seen before and thought might be interesting to try. It was like a mini striped yarn cake and I thought it would be fun for a small project.
