I dream of spring…ie!

This was a looong week! Maybe because it was the first full week back at work, or just the seemingly endless winterness, or just a case of the grumpies for some unknown reason, but it REALLY got to me!

My craft a day-ness suffered a bit because of it. There were a couple of days that I wasn’t able to do anything but knit a few stitches or glue a couple of pompoms and then did a proper hibernation and climbed into my cave at like 7 pm! Was just super sleepy!

But as soon as I escaped from work on Friday, I cranked up the heat in my house and threw on my most flowery dress and dreamed of green, flowers, and sunshine and I was BACK! This weekends’ accomplishments: bedazzled some photo frames, am relatively confident in doing a running stitch in sewing, made a LOT of new felt friends, organized my craft room (it was chaos and I kept losing Sugar in the mess!), polished off most of the remaining Christmas cookies (it had to be done :D), and walked a TON (to burn off the cookies and unwind)!

I was craving strawberries during my spring daydreams, so I made these guys out of felt!

Just have to keep remembering, sunnier days to come! 🙂 xoxo

Day 8 of the 30 day blog challenge!

Day 8 – 5 Current Goals

1) BLOG EVERYDAY! I’m having a ton of fun with this blog so far and I want to keep it up. I also really want to make some new bloggy friends (so come say HI!)

2) SPREAD POSITIVITY! Life’s too short to be down… I want to coat the world in pure happiness! 😀

3) LEARN TO SEW! I bought a sewing machine and some pretty fabrics a few weeks ago, and I want to learn how to use it! 

4) CREATE MORE! I want to continue creating my own colourful little world filled with knitted, sewed, and delicious stuff! The eventually goal is to able to start selling my goodies!

5) BE AS COLOURFUL AS POSSIBLE!  I want to add as much rainbowliciousness to every aspect of my life as possible!

Welcome to my latest adventure…. BLOGGING!

Oh hi there and welcome to my brand sparkling new empty internet space! This past year was my busiest EVER!! I now live in the pink sugar coma-inducing home of my daydreams, adopted an extremely cuddly kitty cat, ran a half marathon, finally learned to knit AND feel darn amazing (PHEW!!)

My whimsical pink living room!
This was back in March and some how, my house is WAY more pink now than it was here!

You can see me from a mile away!

Sugar Sweet
I adopted this pretty girl (her name is SUGAR!) in April!

Knitted donut!
When I can’t eat sugar, I create sugary things! Yes, I clearly have a MASSIVE sweet tooth 😉

The only “problem” is the year is almost over and I didn’t have the time to squeeze in everything that I wanted to and all of the crafty fun creativeness kept getting pushed off (figuratively, and in a very literal way by the cat!) So right now my brain is stuffed to the brim with all sorts of creative ideas and craziness!!

Chair stealer!
But she’s the reason I can’t get anything done! (Okay, I’ve been using that as a bit of an excuse but no more!)

I guess the only thing a girl can do is step it up next year and BLOG about it! My plan is to create a little bit everyday – whether it’s a yummy thing, a crafty, a knitted thing, and any other thing I can think of. Then share it with the whole world here!

Sewing and Sugar the Cat!
My new sewing machine! My 2019 goal is to learn how to use it and start sewing my own clothes!

Technically I was going to make this my 2019 resolution, but I’m INPATIENT and can’t wait to go, and I have some fun little ideas up my ruffly pink sleeves and want to share them NOW! So see you soon! xoxo
