NEW Free Pattern! Textured Knit Dishcloth

Hello friends!  It's been so long since I have written a blog post... about 9 months or so I think?? To catch you up since my last post in June I started working full time and... we bought a house!  It's a cute little fixer upper that was built in the 1940s and I am hoping to get some posts out about projects and decorating things.  

We really haven't done too much with it other than painting.  I did however create a gallery wall around the TV, hung up some cute finds from Target and got some really good deals on new stainless steal appliances!  Stay tuned for those posts coming soon.  :)

Mini Bow Bookmark! A Free Crochet Pattern & Tutorial

Hello earthlings!  I have a super simple and quick project to share with you today, the Crochet Mini Bow Bookmark.  I don't know about your neck of the woods but it has been hot and humid as heck out here!  Not that I am complaining...I love me some sunshine but when the weather is how it is the last thing I want is warm fuzzy yarn all over me.  I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a project that is not time consuming and won't leave your hands feeling too hot and uncomfortable.  Knit up a few of them to take for your beach reads or an unexpected surprise for a friend!

Crochet Granny Square Bunting Pattern

Good morning!  Today I thought I would share this super quick and easy granny square bunting project.   I picked  two of my favorite bold summer-ish colors, watermelon pink and mustard.   This bunting would look adorable in a nursery or just about any place you want to brighten up a dreary room or wall.  

To get started, here's what you'll need:
-Size 5.5 mm crochet hook
-Worsted weight acrylic yarn in three colors (mustard, watermelon, and cream)
-Yarn needle

NEW PATTERN!! Crochet Panda Hat!

It's been a little quiet around here on the blog lately because I have been developing patterns for my new premium pattern line!  Premium patterns will range in cost anywhere from $3-$5.  I will still be posting free patterns and tutorials of course, but because creating patterns can take such a looooong time to design, edit, and test, not to mention the cost of yarn... I decided to charge a small fee for certain patterns.

Cranberry & Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I don't typically share food posts but thought it might be fun to share this with you today.  Last week I bought chocolate chips with plans on making cookies but never ended up making them.  What did end up happening was opening the bag and grabbing mini handfuls whenever I passed through the kitchen (oops, ha!).  

Whenever Trisden caught me sneaking a handful of chocolate chips he'd ask me where those cookies were.  Over the past few days I had accidentally consumed half the bag of chocolate chips with no cookies to show for it so I figured I should probably make some for poor Trisden since he had been patiently waiting all week.

DIY Iced Coffee

Hello, I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday afternoon.  I don't know about your neck of the woods but it is B-E-A-utiful over here!  95 degrees and sunny...can't complain.  This morning on my way home from work I was fighting the urge to stop at Starbucks and get an ice-ed coffee and let me tell you it took all of my being to not stop and get one.  

I knew I didn't want to spend $5 on an iced mocha when the coffee I have at home is perfectly fine.  But, I wanted an ice-ed coffee not a hot coffee and then realized I can make my own.  And so can you!
