I can’t believe I missed the first Creative Space of 2010! I was so busy last night playing around with my “new yarn” that I totally forgot to write a blog post. Whoops!
My creative space for today, and most of this weekend, is filled with the color red and […]
As I’ve mentioned, I have too much acrylic yarn. I decided to start knitting and crocheting my way through it instead of just giving it away. I made three hats for my friend’s students* and then I kind of got sidetracked by my flowers for Haiti.
*Here’s my first hat finished with […]
I’ve been thinking about white lately. Not bright white, but ivory, soft white and ecru. I’ve been keeping my eye out at the thrift stores, but all I could seem to find was that yellowish cream. Yuck. I even strolled down the yarn aisles at craft stores, which I haven’t done in a long time. […]
Thank you for all of the flower pin purchases! There is one more left that I’ve donated to Craft Hope. Have you been to the Craft Hope for Haiti shop? Crafty folks from all over are donating amazing handmade items to help provide earthquake relief: purses, jewelry, patterns, accessories, hats, prints, […]
I wanted to make some really small hearts for Valentine’s Day crafts, but couldn’t find any patterns online that I liked. After a few tries, I came up with these little cuties.

size F/5 (3.75mm) crochet hook
tapestry needle for weaving ends
There is something in Nebraska’s water. The past few months and the next few months seem to be filled with babies, babies, babies! So, expect to see lots of cute things for my friends’ wee ones here on the blog.
This is a really basic blanket, but the eyelet fabric makes it […]
After my daughter was born, we had a huge supply of gift bags. Most of them were pink, but we had our fair share of gender neutral and holiday bags, too. It’s been over three years, but I’m almost finished using them for gifts.
Honestly, it felt like my stash would never be gone. […]
As soon as I hit “publish” last week on my flower pin post I decided to donate all of the proceeds from my flower pins to Doctors Without Borders. I figured I needed a few more in my shop, though. There are currently four, but I plan to make more. I’ve […]
I tried really hard to write about fabric gift bags last night, but it seems so trivial right now with everything that’s going on in the world. I’ve got a lot of nervous energy to burn. Today I finished a blanket and crocheted more flowers. I can’t stitch flowers to everything in […]
Maybe I should call these Really Lazy Crayon Shapes. I’d been thinking of making them for awhile, but all of the tutorials I found online suggested baking in the oven, melting over a double boiler or melting into cups and pouring into molds. Those were just too many steps for me.
