5 Little Monsters: 2020

Yarn Wrapped Easter Eggs

-This post may contain affiliate links-

Lately I have been enjoying really quick and easy craft projects. You would think being home more would mean more time for projects but that is not the case. Instead I find myself trying to find a few minutes here and there throughout the day to work on my own craft projects, or to make stuff with the kids. But with everything going on I find myself craving that creative time even more than normal.

Last month our family took a trip to Disneyland. It had been a really long time since we had gone on a family vacation and it was so much fun to have that time together. Of course as we were preparing to leave I had to make some shirts for the family. I decided not to do matching shirts and instead I made everyone different shirts that I thought they would like.

EGG-cellent Easter Tags

Last month I ordered a bunch of Easter stuff from Oriental Trading Company for some post I was working on with them. I ordered some things I could use to make Easter crafts (like my bunny wreath and paint poured eggs), and I ordered some stuff to put together Easter Basket ideas for kids. They had tons of fun themed eggs and toys. I ended up choosing some donuts and "sweet treats" themed stuff including, ice cream cone eggs, donut plushies, sweet squishies, and sprinkle bracelets.

Being stuck at home the last couple of weeks has been rough, especially with all of us in the same place all the time and trying to figure out all of the schedules, schoolwork, and zoom calls with all of the different teachers. I found myself feeling extra grouchy and short with my kids and I realized I had been so busy making sure everyone else had everything they needed, got on their calls, had quiet space to do their work, and all everything else that I was not taking anytime for myself.

Polka Dot Puffs Hat

I have had this hat pattern ready to post for a long time but life has been so crazy lately I haven't gotten it up. I debated whether or not to post it now since it is spring here and the weather is starting to warm up, not really hat weather anymore. But then I figured a lot of us are stuck inside right now, what better than a new crochet project. Make a bunch now and you will be all set for winter, whether for yourself, family, gifts, sales, or whatever.

Now that March has arrived the weather is starting to feel a lot more like spring and I am definitely feeling ready for it, including working on spring and Easter crafts.

Easy DIY Travel Pillow

I know I have been sharing lots of Disney posts lately, but I have a couple more to share. Although this one is less "Disney" and more just a travel project. We just got back from our family trip to Disneyland and we drove so we were in the car for a long time. Since we were spending so much time in the car I wanted everyone to bring stuff to be comfortable, and hopefully sleep a little, but we also won't have space for a lot of big stuff.

One of my favorite things in my craft room is my Cricut Maker. There is so much that I can do with it, everything from cutting vinyl, iron on, and cardstock, to cutting delicate materials like fabric and tissue paper, or thick materials like chipboard and balsa wood. There are even tools to engrave, deboss, perforate, score, and more.

Best Day Ever! Disney T-Shirt

I wanted to make a few t-shirts for our family Disneyland trip next month and this was one of the first designs I made. I thought it would be a fun shirt for my 3 year old who has never been to Disneyland before and really has no idea what to expect, but is so excited to go.

My family is getting ready to head to Disneyland in a couple of weeks and everyone is super excited. It has been a long time since we took a trip like this as a family. The last time we went to Disneyland was 9 year and 3 kids ago. We have been planning this trip for nearly a year and I can't believe how close it is.

Last week Cricut announced the addition of a new compact, smart cutting machine, Cricut Joy. This new machine joins the Explore Air 2 and the Maker to complete the Cricut lineup. I actually had the opportunity to get a preview of Cricut Joy about a month before the announcement and have been able to spend the last couple of weeks playing with the new machine.

Printable Valentine Cards

This year as Valentine's Day quickly approaches I decided that I wanted to design some little printable Valentine cards. I especially wanted to make some that could have a little non-candy treat attached.

I thought it would be kind of fun to make some little crocheted treat bags for Valentine's Day. I had an  idea in my head of what I wanted, a little drawstring bag with a heart crocheted on the front of it.

I recently wanted to make a set of crocheted dishcloths as a gift and rather than using one of the patterns I have already made I decided to create a new pattern and I was really pleased with how they turned out.

Cricut Draw and Cut Floral Bookmarks

One of my goals this year is to read more. I love reading and as a kid I read all the time. As an adult I have found it harder to make time to read because I feel like I always have a million other things I should be doing. Of course, I also find myself wasting time on my phone a lot so I am trying to spend less time mindlessly scrolling through social media and more time reading books instead.

Last year I had the opportunity to review some Manos del Uruguay yarn from Fairmount Fibers that included their Cabrito yarn, which is very light, laceweight, kid mohair yarn. I paired it with their Alegria yarn to make a scarf that had stripes of color and texture.

I have a daughter who is kind of obsessed with all things space related, especially NASA, so when I saw that there were a few different galaxy prints of Infusible Ink sheets I had to order some. I wasn't even sure what I would make but I knew she would love them.
