It’s a cool tutorial for beginners, because we go through several different stitches like tr, htr, dc, hdc, and sc!

“You have a bag full of ALIENS!” – Manda, about my baby Groots

gg1Sooooo I FINALLY was able to finish crocheting baby Groots for my giveaway winners from a few months ago. I am super sorry it took me FOREVERRRRRRR. Renegade Craft Fair and then the holidays really made my crocheting schedule crazy! So thanks so much for your patience Kristina, Katgumi, Lexi, Deanna, and Karen! Your baby Groots are boxed up and on the way!

We Sent Letters to the Universe

Screen shot 2015-01-04 at 3.31.12 AMOkay, I’m not a super hippie-dippie touchy-feely spiritual kinda lady, BUT, my best friend is, and sometimes, you read each other’s tarot cards all night and learn about Metatron cubes, and sometimes, you write letters to the Universe.

Screen shot 2015-01-04 at 3.31.03 AMWe decided to take a moment to write down small letters to the Universe on pieces of paper. Manda said to write down our hopes, dreams, and wishes. I ended up writing a lot of promises to myself, with most of my short letters beginning with, “I will….”

Screen shot 2015-01-04 at 3.30.17 AMInitially, we had planned to do all of this outside on a hike, but we woke up too late to go on a hike, so we ended up performing our ritual in Manda’s apartment at night, with all the windows open, jackets zipped up, blankets on laps, occasionally fanning any smoke toward the windows. I know this was not the smartest idea, but it happened, and everything was fine!

…except for the part where the smoke felt REALLY BURNY ON OUR EYEBALLZ.

Screen shot 2015-01-04 at 3.30.42 AMOtherwise, VERY SPIRITUAL. AND STUFF.

Screen shot 2015-01-04 at 3.30.53 AMI hope you are all able to execute your hopes, dreams and wishes this year! <3

(p.s.) How was your NYE? I don’t think I will write a lot about it…. in order to protect the guilty … but we went to our favorite divey club for 80s night, and the evening was no less than epic.

A new magazine has hit the stands: ROOM TO CREATE!

Screen Shot 2014-12-31 at 2.57.16 PMDo you love checking out other people’s creative spaces? ROOM TO CREATE is a brand new print magazine FILLED with colorful photos of crafty studios AND tutorials (including mine!). Learn lots of organizational tips and get inspired for 2015!!! I believe it can be found where most magazines are sold, such as Barnes and Noble! My craft space is currently a huge mess, so telling you guys about this magazine is definitely making me want to pick this place up …. :P

I don’t currently have links or social media info for Room to Create (I just realized that and just emailed about it), but when I find out, I will let you know!
