Our living room has been in need of a clock for a while now. I know from experience that it can get a little annoying if every time you want to check the time you have to peek into the kitchen at the microwave . It's especially annoying if you need the time in a pinch and the clock just says ":20" because you forgot to hit the clear button after nuking that casserole for dinner last night. I was finally fed up with this minor inconvenience and made a clock.

Happy Monday my friends! Last week I worked up these color block iPhone covers and thought it would be a great project to share with you today. In case you missed it, a couple weeks ago I decked out my cellphone case with nail polish which you can check out here. The nail polish and clear glaze I used to seal it with really strengthened the cheap clear case, and it makes for a nice and hard protective barrier to future falls. I was very happy with how it turned out, so now I figured it was time to make a colorful cover to match.
Since I typically just through my phone in my purse and go I figured it would be a good idea to make a little case for it so it won't get all scratched up. I know I could probably just buy a screen protector but I really don't like them because you can always tell they're there. I'm never able to get it smooth or on straight which is super annoying....hence, the color block cover was born.

The weather was super crazy last week with snow, sleet and ice. Normally I would love myself a good snowstorm but it totally messed up my Valentine's Day craft making plans! But let's first back it up so I can give you a little back story. Trisden is a huge Legend of Zelda fan (a Nintendo video game for all you non-nerds, haha) so I figured Valentine's Day would be the perfect opportunity to crochet up his favorite character from the series, Link.

If the post didn't already suggest it, Titanic is one of my all time FAVORITE movies. It's one those movies that if I happen to catch it on tv I always stick around to watch, and from time to time pull out the dvd and play that too. I don't think I could even count the number of times I've seen it. Don't lie, you know you love this movie too, haha. :)
Even if you don't have the rich Cal Hockley in your life to give ya the real thing, you can make your very own heart of the ocean without spending a penny and your finished piece will be priceless. Plus Leonardo DiCaprio

Valentine's Day is around the corner, just a week away I believe. February 14th is a little special around here because five years ago on that day Trisden proposed! I can't believe it's been five years already, it's crazy how fast time flies. He proposed in 2009 and we married in 2012, so this July will be our two year anniversary! Crazy!
In light of this special day I thought I would make a pretty garland in the classic festive colors.
Here's what you'll need:

My new phone came in the mail on Monday! I'm so excited to start using it, mostly for the picture taking. All my blog pictures so far have been taken with the iPhone 4 and for a cell phone it seems to do pretty well. This will be my last post with the 4 photos, and I am so excited to see what the 5s can do!

Hello my friends! It is Monday night so the reality tv is on and the crochet hook is out. Dramatic television plus yarn equals a pretty good night in my book, haha. I'm happy to say I finally completed my crochet wallet, it's been in the works for the past week and has been fun to design and crochet.
It's such a feeling of accomplishment after you weave in that last tail of a project and know you just turned a ball of yarn into something useable! Plus crocheting makes Netflix binge watching a little more guilt free because at least I am doing something productive right? It's not just vegging out in front of the tv, I am creating a work of art here!
The pattern is pretty simple, it's comprised of just two long crocheted rectangles, folds, and slipped stitches. This adorable little wallet is perfect for all of your on-the-go needs and features pockets for holding credit cards, a checkbook, and cash.
Plus who could resist a little bow detail...
