Crochet Barefoot Sandals

So I find myself being inspired lately by the barefoot sandals of the summer and wanting to make my own.

I also need a way to make a little money until my husband gets disability, a fight that is hopefully coming to an end this summer (later).

Living with a MIL should have some advantages, like a babysitter but alas not always the case, especially when she doesn't think anything you do will work. But, I am not deterred.

Soon I will have a free pattern for the ones on my feet there below, and I will have a pattern to sell for the Rose Lace one. Will have it on Etsy, as soon as I make a new shop. I still have the old, and need to fix some things in that, but we'll see.

Let me know what you think. Positive feedback is encouraging.

Instagram Photos on PC

So, as I've mentioned before, I fell in love with Instagram.  Just how you can take your pics and then add a nice touch to them.  It certainly makes the ordinary, well, not so ordinary.

I found myself in a pickle the other day with the prospect of putting pictures from my camera (my camera camera) onto my phone simply to "instagram" them.  As much as I love instagram it does have some limits, and having every pic for all to see is not always necessary. 
Well, for the pics I just wanted for my PC I found Pixlr-o-matic, it's free and just plain cool.

Check it out, check it out, check...it...out...

Childhood Conspiracy

Child wants a bath.....

Mom says, "no, you had a bath last night."

After dinner child has chocolate pudding. Child's brain starts turning.

5 minutes later...

"Mom, I need a bath."

Mom turns around to see child covered in chocolate pudding.

Child gets a bath.....

It's a conspiracy...

Lessons From the Syfy Channel...

If there is a large man eating dinosaur running loose outside a building you are in, do not, I repeat,  do not run outside the building to get to the building across the street.
1) You are not a chicken
2) Odds are you will be eaten
A lesson you shouldn't have to learn by experience...

Tablet Cover DIY

So, my mom got me an android tablet for my birthday  and I love it.  Now, it's no high end tablet, but it does a good job.

The problem with the tablet, however, is not necessarily with the tablet.  Have you seen the covers out there?  The ones that make your tablet look like a book?  Not very pretty.  So, I made my own.

And......wah lah...

Here's the inside...
I'm thinking of making a tutorial on how to do this easy DIY.  Subscribe to my blog or youtube channel and let me know if you'd like to see how to make this :)

A Shawl For a Friend

My friend found a shawl through pinterest that she loved, and really wanted.  So I'm making her one ;).

The shawl on Etsy could be found HERE.

Here is a picture of it
Beautiful isn't it.   Buttttt....did you see the price $475!!!!  Man, I really need to get selling on Etsy.  Who's with me?!

Despite the price, I'm not deterred, because I can make it myself :).

It's not a perfect match, but I'm working on "just as good" not "perfect."

Here's my progress.  I hope she is happy with it when I finally finish it. 

As always, God Bless you Always

A Piece of Heaven

There are just those moments in life where you take your child and you breathe them in like oxygen. You realize how close to heaven you really are when you lay close to them.

Life is only as full of those moments as you allow. Please allow.

God Bless Always
