Teal & Chunky Crochet Blanket


Can I tell you how soft and cozy this blanket is? I'm just in love!  πŸ˜ 

I think a blanket like this would make a great gift (to give and receive)  - what do you think? 
Or am I just partial?

I'm debating if I should make a few and gift to close friends/family or if I should make a few and sell in my Etsy shop.

What do you think I should do?

Big, Beautiful, Chunky and Crooked

Quite a header right? Well it's true! My latest and greatest crochet project is big, beautiful, chunky and....crooked. 


I've been pretty excited about this project just happily crocheting away each night. When I finished my 4th skein, sewed in my tails and then stepped back to admire my work I noticed it's completely crooked. 

Guess that means I'm keeping this one for myself and starting a new one.

It's still pretty despite it's major flaw - it can never be folded into a nice neat pile.

I've strategically photographed it this way so you can't see the error πŸ˜‰.

There's beauty in imperfection. Right?

Thankful Thursday

I wasn't planning on blogging today but I saw Rebecca's post and felt inspired! 

1.  This journal: 
I bought it probably about 6+ months ago. It's been sitting on my desk staring me in the face since. Today is the first day I actually wrote in it.  And it felt good.

2. The rain today. Mother Nature watering my pepper and tomato plants.

3. My challenge group for July:
the ladies in the group keep me motivated & inspired to workout every day. 

4. It's only the 6th day of the month and I already have two sales in!  πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ

5. One week of work and then it's vacation time (and it helps that I'm close to quota so perhaps I can relax and enjoy my vacay and not worry {too} much about work)!

6. The outlets opened near my house a few months ago - so me and along with everyone else in Montgomery County were there spending (literally) the day away on the 4th. I'm grateful I have the funds to do so and now I have a bunch of cute things to wear on my vacation (and to work).

7. I'm grateful for this quote: "Today is a good day for a good day". I have it hung on my wall so I can be reminded every day. 

What are you grateful for this week?

WIP: Midwife Blanket

Hello Friends!

I'm getting some crochet mojo back! I've been slowly picking up my hook and getting some stitches in here and there, and it feels good!

One of my goals last year (which I failed to do - so I'm taking it on again this year) is to create & donate some blankets to Project Linus.  

I am determined to donate a few handmade blankets before the end of the year. I did make one last year and tucked it away somewhere...(aka I put it in a safe place and now I can't remember where that safe place is). I've started a second blanket I intend to donate called The Midwife Blanket

Have you seen Call the Midwife? It's a great show! You can binge watch on Netflix right now! 

Meanwhile I'll keep on hooking!

Personal Development Books To Read

I did TERRIBLE with my reading goals last year. I don't think I read even5 books last year - oooh the shame of it all!

I really think by me not blogging and having someone (you) to hold me accountable for my reading goals - things really fell by the wayside.

This year I'm going to make up for it!
I have pre-planned to read AT LEAST 6 of these 8 PD books (on top of all the chicklit I want to read)

All of which I have picked for myself and ones that I have been wanting to read (all of last year).

I'm starting with The Four Agreements. I'm about 70% in to it now. It just makes SO much sense.
I'll do a blog post on it later so keep an eye out for that!

Also on my list:
- The Miracle Morning
-Daring Greatly
-The Happiness Project
-Get Over Your Damn Self
-Rising Strong
-You Are a Badass
-The Power of Now 

I hope to end 2017 a more developed person than I have started it to be! 

What PD books have you read and recommend?
What PD books do you want to read?
