  1. That is so cute! Looks so very summer and fun too!
  2. Good morning house! Cindy-oh my gosh! Having hours cut is scary! That is just awful, I would be worried too. My dh works in the medical field as well, companies are cutting back in every way. It is getting pretty scarce out there. We haven't had any more snow here but it sure has been cold. Judy-Project Linus would not accept your goodies? That just sounds strange, even with having pets. Do you have nearby schools that would like hats? Nursing homes? Marisa-welcome back! Congratulations! I bet you and Troy are over the moon happy to start planning a wedding. 5 weddings
  3. Good morning house! Judy-using left over yarn is so rewarding! I really must start a scarp ghan as my small skeins of yarn are taking over my craft corner. We have had such a cold winter, I am looking forward to Spring and warm nights. Cindy-your chili recipe sounds yummy! My family loves chili is a good idea, I should whip up a batch. My freezer meals are almost gone, how about yours? Joanne-how are you? Do you go to Craft Night anymore? Mary-ohh strep throat, yikes! dh is a carrier and I am the receiver, it sure is painful. So happy to hear that Gracie is doing well
  4. Good morning House! Up early, working my tail feathers off. I host an Event on Sunday's called Sunday Dibs at 6:00. It starts at exactly 6:00 p.m. Mountain Time on Facebook, I list yarn/craft supplies/product from my shop for sale, usually at a good discount. Whomever calls "Dibs" on it first gets it, they then have a week to come into the shop to pick it up. This helps me clear out inventory and also rewards my loyal customers and friends. I have quite a bit of yarn to sell and a few crafty notions. Haven't hosted one since Sept, I am happy to jump back in the saddle. Judy-oh my
  5. Top of the morning house! Judy-what a stunner! The black really makes the colors pop! That was so nice of you to repair it for your friend, what a treasure. What is the next project on your hook? Any more graphghans? Joanne-How does your oldest dd love being an auntie? That is one of my favorite titles, I just adore all of my nieces and nephews, they are all growing up so fast! My wrist feels better, I think I over did it a bit yesterday, was working on finishing a few wips, knit dischloths. I stumbled across them and thought I should get them off the needles as they have been s
  6. Good morning almost afternoon house! Judy-your afghan is another stunner! looks so very warm and cuddly. My dh reallys like the Bernat Blanket Yarn. I just ordered 7 large skeins to make him an afghan and 2 more to finish the baby ghan that I am making for my sister. He never really gets into yarn but he really really likes the softness of it. I am hoping that he can crochet his own afghan. I taught him a few weeks ago, he can do a sc with ease. Mary-did you get to work on your Etsy shop? I find it relaxing to work online but some days I want out! Out of the shop and out of my
  7. Good morning house! I am BACK! I apologize for my absence. I had so much work to catch up on. Just when I feel like I can breathe I find something else that needs my attention. Cindy-your tote is stunning! Happy Late Birthday! What a wonderful surprise, I bet it was just so much fun spending time with your family. Your dh was probably so excited to gather everyone together. Joanne-I am a leftie but my grandmother taught me how to crochet right handed. I have developed tendinitis and carpal tunnel in my right hand and forearm. I have been really trying to take care of it
  8. HIi House! Quick fly by! Thinking of all of you and wishing you a great weekend! Back to work.
  9. Good afternoon house! Remeber me? I have been lost in the sauce! When I am gone please know that I am thinking of all of you but am juggling life and being a mom/wife/business owner. Joanne-is your dd's new shop bigger? I hope to one day increase my shop size but am comfy where I am at. Your afghan is beautiful! Love the way the colors work together. Cindy-I have had the cleaning/oragnizing bug too! I spent a good 8 hours here in my Craft Studio, organizing my molds, shelves and cupboards and filling orders. Judy-we have had a lot of snow this year, it has been snowing
  10. Good morning House! Up early cleaning, both the house and my craft studio. I am so glad that I am able to carve out time to do it. My kiddos have been cleaning for the last month, they do a good job but I like doing a deep clean every now and then. The bathrooms are clean, craft studio is tidy, utensils and dishes are washed here in the studio. That can be a task with all of the product making that goes on in here. I like that I have my own double sink and counter top. I can now move on to Valentine product with ease. Marisa-ohh those winter colds can be tough. Thankfully I have
  11. Top of the morning house! It was Negative 22 °F here last night We also have a foot of snow in our yard, some parts we have two. The weather man said that it was to snow but I wasn't really expecting this much. I closed the shops early as folks were staying home. I mainly drove in as my dd had to go take her Drivers Permit test. She is officially a driver in the state of Colorado, with an adult that is. She was super excited. We went to the shop to shovel snow as they ticket if you do not clear off your sidewalk. The Wileys that own the building are out of town. Dr. Wiley had
  12. Good evening house! Bet you all wondered what had happened to me? I have been busy as a bee, shipping rates are going up on the 22nd, I have had to go in and do lots of work in my etsy shops, quarterly taxes and inventory. I have everything done except the inventory. My brain is fried! In between it all I have been trying to whip up Valentine products and discount left over Christmas goodies..my oh my! Judy-the grey afghan is a stunner! It looks cozy and so nice. The purple grannie ghan is spectacular! You do such amazing work! Mary-so glad that your dd is out of surgery and re
  13. Marisa-Happy New Year! Do you have plans for the weekend? Thank you for the lovely compliments.
  14. Happy New Years Eve my friends! Cindy-your breakfast sounds delish! oh my gosh, more presents? how fun! Your purse organizer is a great idea! I switched purses as the same thing was happening to me, my keys would fall to the bottom and then I had to dig now I just put them in the side pocket. Mary-glad that your dh is doing better. You are very smart to organize all of his meds, I bet things can get tricky. My mom sets and alarm on her cell phone for all of her meds, she has a difficult time keeping up with them all. I am a horrible pill taker, I forget but if I had to I bet I w
  15. Good morning House! CIndy-a new tote bag sounds wonderful! My mom received a sewing machine for Christmas, she was so excited! My sister and i helped her set it up and wind the bobbin. It was so cute to see her sitting and sewing, she used to sew 30 years ago but has never gone back to it. Judy-The new throw sounds warm and cozy. I love snuggling up under an afghan. Joanne-your mini vacation has started, how fun! Are you home relaxing and hooking/knitting? Mary-hoping that Gracies appointment goes well and that you are able to rest today. Hello Marisa and the rest of
  16. Good afternoon House! It has been a whilrwind of work here on my end, finally getitng the chance to sit and take a break. Cindy-eeekkk! We have lots of snow and ice here, that is super scary when you do a "doughnut". I have been driving like a turtle but I will be so glad when the weather warms up. It was Negative 17 this morning. My poor little car did well but the heater never kicked on. Judy-I ran out of yarn..gosh! I am using the Lion Brand USA Yarn, checked my stash and I have about 5 skeins of bulky yarn all in different colors, going to order 2 more of each and make
  17. Good morning House! Joanne-the Cookie Making may not happen until after Christmas. Dd and I were supposed to bake last night but after drivig home on the slick roads, I was exhuasted. We both agreed that we could do it after Christmas. Cindy-oh my gosh! I hope that you find a bit of time to rest a bit inbetween all of the fun activities. Just last night my dd and I were talking about how sometimes the Holidays can add so much stress. For once, I am feeling relatively stress free, we are going to the in-laws on Christmas Eve. We will be spending the night and then part of Christ
  18. Good morning House! How is everyone today? Mary-so happy to hear that Gracie is doing well, what a ham! How exciting to have your family near for the holidays. We are all spread out this season. I am ok with it as I usually host, this year we are going to the in-laws. I just have to take a few things, easy peasy! Judy-ohhh laaa laaa cookies sound great! I have never heard of kruschiki cookies are they a flour based cookie? Hello to the rest of the house! We are in the middle of a snow storm. I drove in, took about 45 minutes as I was inching. The roads are icy, the
  19. Hi House! Judy-awww poor Lucy, hopefully the meds and spray will alleviate her discomfort and then you will be back to normal. Your ganny ghan is working up together quickly! I am still plugging away on the Temperature Afghan, I am super glad that I started it as it is fun and not too stressful. Cindy-did you get your shopping done? Hopefully work went well. It has been super busy here in my shop as well as Joyce's. Marlene-44 people for dinner? oh my! I would have been tuckered out! Hopefully you can get a few moments of rest in between all of the packing. Joanne-are
  20. Good morning House! I am finally able to breathe!!! Oh how good it feels! I have put the Heaven's Scent Etsy shop on vacation and am enjooying a bit of hooky time. Nothing like waiting till the last minute to get X-Mas gifts whipped up. I have finally wrapped all of the gifts with the exception of one, but it is going to go in a gift bag My ds has finished the semester and my dd has finals this weekend. What a relief to have things wind down. Judy-70 squares? oh my! How fun! I have been keeping up with the Temp ghan and am so glad that I am connecting and weaving ends as I
  21. Good afternoon house! Mary-oh my gosh! That sure is scary! Cooking can be dangerous, that is so sad to hear that the house is damaged, will they have to re-do the entire kitchen? I am seriously thinking of putting my Etsy shops on Vacation for a week, I usually do not do that but a few days break would be wonderful. Judy-Happy Birthday to you! hoping that you are enoying your day! Marlene-you have had an awful lot of snow! We have had a dusting here but I think it is too cold for snow. It is in the negatives almost every night, during the days the hottest it gets is
  22. Good morning House! Joanne-wonderful hearing from you! You are on the ball! Two headbands in one evening, wow! I bet your co-workers will love them. Are you planning Christmas? Will you be hosting? Cindy-so glad that you are feeling better, it is cold here too! I haven't jumped on the bandwagon of the messy buns but they are popular! They seem quick to work up too I have thick and chunky yarn was thinking of using it to make myself a few beanies..not sure I will get to it this year but I would be so excited to be able to wear fashionable beanies to the shop. Judy-how's the
