So I'm attempting to just blog on the fly this morning. I'm weird that I like to think about what I'm going to write about, plan it out, then blog. This feels weird. I don't really know what I'm going to write about. I'm just typing to see if anything pops into my head.
So welcome to 2012. (btw I totally started writing about something else and changed my mind and deleted it all) LOL I'm hopeless. So I guess one of the things that has been taking up my blogging and reading time is crochet and knitting. My grandmother and auntie taught me how to crochet when I was a teenager. I get in these crafty moods from time to time and break out my yarn and needles. My 8 year old nephew recently started loom knitting so I wanted to try it too. Hey if an 8 year old could do it, how hard could it be. So I bought one and I loved it. It is so much easier than knitting by hand. And faster. And already I've made 2 hats, and 2 scarves.
The other thing that has got me obsessed lately is Pinterest. It's this new website. I guess you can call it an online pin board of things you love, recipes you want to try, clothes you like, places you want to go, and anything really. I LOVE IT! Wolfy sits there and teases me about it, but I've found a lot of great ideas on there for storage, organization, and saving money. Which of course has me wanting to do all kinds of other crafts...that take up my reading and blogging time. Ugh, why do I need to sleep. I would get so much done.
So here are some links to some of the new projects I've found and done on Pinterest. You should try it.
My daughter has so many headbands all over the house. I went to the dollar store for a cheap paper towel holder and a roll of paper towel. I used fabric I had on hand to make this. Cost me $2. Here is the link to Headband Holder tutorial
Here is an example of loom knitting
I also found this recipe for super easy 2 ingredients Pumpkin Muffins. Genius and Delicious.
Pinterest is currently invite only. Just let me know and I'll invite you.
Happy crafting, cooking, and eating. =)
