New Cat Blanket!

I learned how to join granny squares while making them from this wonderful website She has a great tutorial that made joining granny squares super easy! I decided to start small and made my kitties a blanket for their cubical in our living room! It turned out pretty cute I think. I made a 4X4 blanket and added eyelash yarn around the edges...cats LOVE eyelash yarn! Let me know what you think!!

Crafty Day

I was in a super crafty mood last night!

I made this cat/paw print pincushion!

And I crocheted this will probably be an entire blanket someday but for now it's just a small circle.

And last but not least I also made this cat toy for my babies!

Happy Birthday Husband!!


Today is my husband Jon's 24th birthday! I just wanted to take the time and tell him how much I love him.


Today is your birthday and although we are having a "different" type of year I just wanted you to know how much I love you! You are an amazing man and an awesome teacher, no matter how difficult it sometimes may be. I can't wait to see what our future holds and where it might take us. No matter what, we have each other and that's ALL I need. I love you so much and hope you enjoy your new golf club!

Your wife

For his birthday I bought him this golf club that he hasn't stopped talking about since the first time he was able to use one back in October! It's a TaylorMade R7 Superquad.

Easter Basket Centerpiece Tutorial

Easter Basket Centerpiece Tutorial

Step 1: Get basic supplies. Easter style basket, Styrofoam, different colors of Easter grass (I used pink, green and yellow), pastel flower bundles, egg or other Easter style picks, baby chicks.

Step 2: Put Styrofoam blocks into basket.

Step 3: Stick picks randomly into foam to start filling basket.

Step 4: After picks are all in, randomly place flowers (separate them from their bundles) into foam to fill the edges of basket.

Step 5: Fill in holes with Easter grass (along the edges and in the middle). The Easter grass will hide the green foam.

Step 6: Place chicks in the Easter grass along the edges and middle.

Step 7: You're finished!! Enjoy your beautiful Easter Basket Centerpiece!

Happy Easter!!
