Bossest Ever Crochet Hook

I am literally in love with this new (to me) hook. For real, we will have a Summer wedding with flowers and puppies. I was checking out some of the rubber-enforced hooks on Amazon and found the Addi Swing Hook by chance. My tension is usually pretty tight so I was intrigued by the shape and took a chance on a 1.5 for a summer bag I’m doing (it’s never too early to start prepping). It took a second for me to figure out, but I have gotten the hang of it! The only thing I miss about my tiny 1.5 is feeling like a giant while man-handling that little metal bar. But I do it miss the claw hands I had after using the standard, that’s for sure.

My inspiration comes from this lovely pin

Summer Crafty Therapy

Self-care is alive and well this summer while I’m off. It’s crazy how creative and motivated I am with this time off. I can feel the urge to get back into work and care mode bubbling, but I am trying to ward it off.  I will either have some new additions to Etsy, maybe a flea market, or a surplus of Christmas gifts, but either way I’ve got a ton of ideas and mojo and it feels great! I’ve done some crocheted washcloths, keychains, and another scarf (with another in queue)!

I did it! …The Story of Etsy and I Begins!


I did it!  Two days into Snowcation 2016 I finally got it…THE SHOP IS OPEN! I’m not expecting huge results, but I am super excited that I finished a goal. Whoop whoop! This is especially true since snow days make you feel a little drugged, like I need to get my life to.ge.ther. I’m squealing, for real.
