My Pantry – All Organized!!

So, I am soooo thrilled with my pantry right now!  When I bought my house, there was no pantry at all.  My dad and I built one from nothing, and may I say my Dad is amazing.

I painted it bright white and threw everything in there.

Sometime last year I started organizing, but didn’t have all the storage I needed.

I asked my dear sweet boyfriend for modular storage for my birthday last week and he got it for me.  I made little labels with my Cricut and outlined them and wrote out all of the crazy labels I wanted.  I am so happy with the results.


This was originally inspired by The House of Smiths – Kitchen Pantry.  It still isn’t as cute as I’d like it to be, I love the vinyl she used on the walls.  I haven’t decided yet if I am going to do anything on the back wall of the pantry or not.  For now, I am happy to have all my different flours labeled and ready to bake with!  I found an awesome sounding recipe for french bread, that I seem to have forgotten to bookmark.  Here’s hoping I can find it again and share the wealth!

On the Crochet Along front, I completed 15 Round 1 circles today during our Crochet Lunch hour.  So, I have 88 – 15 -1 which is 72 more to go by the end of the week!  Gotta get to work!

Good night!



Crochet Along with InnerHooker

So, I am taking on a big project that will hopefully turn out beautifully!  I’m so excited about Crochet Along with Inner Hooker.  I bought my yarn today, maybe I got enough, I’m not sure.  I think I have enough in my stash to fudge any that I am missing.  I bought a One Pound roll of white, and Caron Simply Soft was on sale for 4 for $10.00 at Michael’s!  I love this yarn, it is shiny and soft!  I can’t wait to have a beautiful blanket made from it!


I had to share 2 pictures of it, because it is just so pretty!


So Beautiful!  I checked gauge, and for me, I am going to do Rounds 1-4.  So, I have 88 circles to make this week.

Another project for this week is to test a pattern for Jocole Patterns.  I bought my fabric today and need to sit down and get to business.  My last knit project was a little rough, but her patterns are so explanatory that I can’t wait to see what tips and tricks are up her sleeve!

Lessons Learned this Week

Lift with your knees, not with your back. I’ll say it again lift with your knees not with your back. I threw my back out on Sunday and was in a good deal of pain on Monday, but I though I was taking it easy…. Turns out, I wasn’t. I threw it out even worse and ended up in the ERGENT care. Many days of muscle relaxers and pain pills and I am beginning to feel human again.

So, when you are stuck in bed, what can you do? Crochet like a mad woman! I hadn’t been able to find a horse pattern I liked, so I decided to make one of my own, and might I say, I love it!

Pokey the Horse Face
Pokey Mane - Back View

The curly mane is an nice little mohawk down the back.  Please ignore the stuff on the table in the picture, I am not allowed to clean up.  I’ll get better pictures when my back is up and working again.  This horse could easily be made for a little lady with a pretty flower in its mane.  Now I am back to crocheting a cute little zebra for a little gal in Colorado.

Here’s the latest finished Cow Hat for a lovely little lady in Colorado.

I hope you enjoy and have a great day.  Also, lift with your knees, every time.


Business Cards, Websites, and Logos, Oh My!

Hello!  I feel like this has been a LONG time coming.  I got the idea to start my own little business in April.  Now, I am finally getting to where I can move forward with things.  I must thank my mom, Mary King, for designing my logo and helping immensely with getting the images for my WordPress and Etsy sites all ready and beautiful!  I couldn’t have done this without her.  I love the graphics she came up with and appreciate her help so much.

I plan on doing tons of crocheting and sewing in the weeks to come.  I just finished 2 cow hats for a couple of lovely little ladies in Colorado.

Cow Hat

I am about to try to make a horse hat without a pattern.  It should be an interesting challenge!  I’ll post pics as soon as I have them for you!

So, welcome to my blog.  Hope you’ll come back for more!
