I love bags of pretty much any size and shape. I came across this pattern via a Crochet-Along (CAL) on Facebook and thought it was so cute I had to give it a try. This was a fun bag to make, and I can see myself making more. If you are brand new to crochet,… Read More Crochet Malia Shoulder Bag

Growing up, both of my grandmothers made nylon dish scrubbies. So, of course, I thought everyone knew about these things. Apparently not. But… I’ve found that once someone has used one, they are usually hooked! I think they are a great alternative to a kitchen sponge. I use one every time I wash dishes. They have… Read More My Favorite Dish Scrubbie
I’ve thought about creating a website for a long time, and now I’m taking the leap. I love to create and I envision this as a place to share ideas and inspiration.
