Long Absence

Hello everyone,

I have been absent from blogging for months now. I think the last post I wrote was either in January or February.  I haven’t felt like blogging, or writing at all in general. I have had way too much going on in my life besides blogging that it just kind of fell to the wayside.  I recently moved to a much bigger space with nearly twice the square footage of my last apartment.

MSD Basic Halter Top Crochet Pattern

I designed and wrote my first ever crochet pattern!  I am so happy to share it with you all here.  You can also find it on Ravelry.com.

If you create anything from this pattern, then I’d love to know and to see how it turns out for you!   Continue reading

Happy New Year!

I have been taking a bit of a break from blogging lately.  I have had zero interest in writing or even turning on my laptop.  I think it’s partly because of the dark days of winter and because I’ve been working a lot on my crochet.  I made this afghan for my mom for Christmas. Continue reading

I’m Coping

I have been coping remarkably well with the change in seasons this year.  The transition from summer to fall happened really slowly for us and I still don’t even really feel like it’s been that cold.  I’m not sure what that means for later on in the winter, probably it will be a long and cold one, but so far so good.  I’ve found a new hobby, if you couldn’t tell.  I’ve been getting in touch with my inner kiddult and am finding how much I enjoy collecting dolls.  I actually just got one back today from getting its face painted and I’ll very happily show you it sometime this week.

I Actually Love October

I forgot how beautiful October is.  This is probably the only month in the “colder” months that I like.  I live in a place where we have many beautiful, changing trees this time of year.  My city is surrounded by state forest on all sides, so it’s really gorgeous right now.  I’m definitely sad about summer being over, but it’s still very warm right now and there isn’t much humidity, so it’s more enjoyable to be outside.  K and I decided to go to the golf course yesterday, where I took the leaf pictures.  Continue reading

Confession of the Day: I Like Stuffed Animals

I may have slightly mentioned this in the past, but not recently I don’t think.  I have a confession to make: I’m 25 years old and I like stuffed animals.  Let me clarify, though. I don’t like ALL stuffed animals. I hate the cheap, ugly ones from carnivals or amusement parks.  I kind of collect Japanese plushies (AKA stuffed animals). Continue reading

Struggling with Laziness

I have spent a lot of time sitting on my couch lately. I have finally found some time to pick up my crochet hook and start crafting again. I am really, really excited and proud to say that I am working on my very own Amigurumi pattern! Continue reading

Infusing Water, Baby Things, and Positive Vibes

Oh my goodness. Chester was super cuddly when I came home today and wanted nothing more than to just rub his scent all over my arms and legs. I happened to get a picture of him licking my arm! I love that you can see his tongue in this picture 😀 Continue reading

My Most Recent Crochet Projects

You may or may not know that I love to crochet.  Sometimes I like it more than other times and the winter seems like a time during which I crochet a lot more.  The last couple of weeks, I’ve been crocheting up a storm.  I’ve been told that crocheting and knitting help to occupy the mind through the coordination of the hands, the eyes, and the mind.
