Newest Creations

I have been working to get some new items up on the site. I finally was able to post them. There are a few more that I need to take photos of and get loaded.

Check these out and stop by my Etsy shop!

Lazy Days

Oh boy! After recovering from a nasty stomach bug last week I am starting to feel more like myself. One of my kids got sick and it passed on to me. Sharing is not caring when it comes to sickness. We were fully expecting the bug to make the rounds throughout the whole family but thankfully it did not.

So, now I finally have the strength to finish my magnets and actually get them photographed. I only managed to post a few on my Etsy shop but I feel like it is a great victory for me.

I went a few months without having any sort of inspiration for making the magnets. And it seemed like every crochet project I attempted was just not turning out right. On top of homeschooling the kids and keeping the house clean I just felt pretty rundown.

Yesterday, I started to get my energy back and happened to tell the kids that we are spending a great chunk of the day cleaning the house. You can probably guess what kind of reaction I received!

Hopefully later on today I will be able to work on some more magnets and get them posted.

That is all for now!

 

 

Supplies Oh My!

A couple of weeks ago I ordered glass pebbles to make more magnets. Unfortunately, I was not paying attention and I bought the wrong size!

It took about three weeks for the order to arrive. When I received it, I was a bit shocked. Despite the mistake I kept them and am trying to figure out what I will use them for. They are smaller than an inch and as you can see from the photo below that makes for a problem with my tool.

This is not the first time I did not pay attention when ordering. But this will be that last time. If anything I learned that paying attention will save me money and time.

I posted an article about beginner crochet mistakes a week or so ago. And in the post I confessed about my lack of patience when it comes to my projects. I get so excited when I work on something that I want to see the finished product right away. That does not always turn out so well. Back to the quote mentioned above, mistakes are apart of the learning process. As my product offerings increase so does my confidence in making them. Feedback from my customers has always been so helpful!

It has been a long slow journey and I have learned so much from my mistakes. I look forward to the future with much joy!
