Today I am excited to be part of the Holiday Stashdown Crochet Along put together by CAL Central. Each week there is a new free crochet pattern from different designers each week (26 total), projects that can be used as holiday gifts, decor, and more. And to help you use up the yarn that you have each of the projects is either a one skein project, or a scrappy, stash buster project. Be sure to follow along so you can check out all of the projects and enter to win lots of fun prizes.

Double Double Dishcloth

It has been a while since I posted a dishcloth pattern. Life has been a little crazy lately and I haven't been able to spend as much time crocheting as I would have liked over the last few weeks. I was starting to really crave time to do something creative, I was missing spending time working on projects. 

Make Your Own Card Inserts for Cricut Joy

One of my favorite things about my Cricut Joy is how easy it is to make cards. I was never a big card maker before, or a paper crafter of any kind. I hated trying to glue little pieces on an not having it look messy. So when I first saw the Cricut Joy Insert Cards I thought they were great. 

Pick Your Own Pumpkin Bucket

This summer my mom picked up a couple of these square galvanized buckets for me on clearance thinking they would work well for a project. They are actually ice buckets/beverage dispenser stands, but really any similar sized pocket would work for this project, even a wooden box. Anyway, when she gave them to me I immediately knew what I wanted to do with one of them and I have been waiting for the right season to make it.

The last couple of weeks I feel like I have posted a lot of crochet projects, so the next few days will be some other types of crafts. I really love crocheting but it tends to take a while to finish a project and sometimes I just want a nice quick project, or even just something different to switch it up a little. Todays project was a really quick, easy project and one that would even be fun to do with kids. And be sure to keep scrolling to the end of this post to enter to win a giveaway for a gift card to your favorite craft store.

 Day 2 of my birthday week projects and giveaways is here, and it is a fall crochet project and a fall crochet giveaway as well. I love fall, it is my favorite season, and not just because my birthday is in the fall. I love the cooler temperatures, the holidays, the decorations, the smells, and I love the colors of fall.

This week is my birthday so I thought it would be fun to celebrate a little. I usually am not a birthday person, I don't like to make a big deal about it or really draw attention to it, but I have been wanting to come up with a reason to do a few giveaways and figured this would be the perfect excuse. I have reached out to a few of my favorite brands and will have different giveaways happening each day leading up to my birthday on Thursday. They will all be happening over on Instagram but I will share all the details on my blog and other social media accounts as well.
