Today I wanted to share a pretty palette I've been crushing on! Sometimes when I'm wandering around on Pinterest, I come across a color scheme that I just LOVE! (I often use color schemes I find on Pinterest as inspiration when I'm making afghans and scarves.)
I found this picture a bit ago, and it inspired me to crochet a baby blanket. (I came up with a Flower Granny Square variation on my own and will be posting a pattern for it in the near future!)
"What praises can we offer To thank thee, Lord most high? In our place thou didst suffer; In out place thou didst die, By heaven's plan appointed, To ransom us, our King. O Jesus, the annointed, To thee our love we bring!"
When I was a kid I loved to check out drawing how-to books from the library. Some of my VERY favorite books were those put out by Ed Emberley. (Click his name to be directed to his fabulous website where you there all sorts of fun activities!!)
He had several book that were based on colors (Big Purple Drawing Book, Big Green Drawing Book, etc.) He including everything from cute little animals to intricate pirate ships. I remember pouring over them and drawing all sorts of environments and creatures.

I've been working on a lot of fun projects over the past few months, but, as often happens with motherhood, my kiddos have taken a big chunk of my creating time! And I wouldn't have it any other way!
The weather is getting pretty chilly around these parts and these pretty little callars are the perfect way to keep your neck warm, while still looking cute! I've been making lots of pretty crochet collars in an array of fantastic trendy colors!
As you may know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month!
Being in the business of making hats, I've have the pleasure to make several over the years for beautiful women who have been diagnosed with breast (or other) cancers. The thing that I've always taken away from these opportunities, is how amazing and strong these women are. So brave and courageous.
I've been working on some fun projects for our new house, and thought I'd share my latest with you!
