Scarves and Fringe!

I am so excited about my new found loves!  My husband is a huge fan of the show, Fringe.  I have been watching with him but I was totally lost.  So I started at the beginning and WOW I love the show!  I am totally engrossed in the plot now.  However, true to form, I cannot have idle hands while watching tv so I decided to take up crocheting.  My mom taught me a few of the important stitches so it was not too hard to pick up. 


Another shade of aqua

I saw this really cute scarf on Pinterest and decided to try my hand at it.  The instructions are very simple and easy to understand.  Please check out Aesthetic Nest for the pattern.  Look for these scarves on my etsy soon. 

Thank you, Sarah Maxwell for being my beautiful model.

Look forward to more nifty crafts in the coming days...

New Toyz!

Sorry I have not updated recently…I think I am having a blog block! 
This week has been filled with many new toys.  I guess Santa came early.   My first new toy is a new exercise machine this weekend. 
It is a Pilates Power Gym.  I am hope this machine will kick my butt while toning and refining it. 

Another exciting toy…The Martha Stewart scoring board.  I have been wanting one for a long time especially after see so many tutorials where people use the board with great success.

My next cool toy (toys) is five Epiphany Craft Shape Studio along with the awesome epoxy bubble covers.
I also got the Round 14, oval, flower button and square.  Can't wait to use these nifty embellishments.  I will blog the results. 

Finally, the coolest toy of all…(pause for dramatic effect)  The new Sizzix Eclips.  I have not used it much yet but I know it is going to be amazing.  The Eclips announce recently that it is going to be compatible with Sure Cuts A Lot which is totally exciting.  The cutting I have done so far has been so much better than the bug. 
Yeah for birthday week. 

Upcoming blog:  A crochet scarf and other assorted crafts
