I know I’ve been missing since I got back from my trip. I sadly have not had a chance to go in my craft room. I am taking a few online classes on crochet from Craftsy.com which are AMAZING! but i’m still on rectangles so nothing interesting to post. So I though I would give you some fun tutorials from other blogs to hold you over until I can post some fun new things. Click on the Photos to go to the tutorials!
This Fun and Easy Tutorial is from my favorite website MAKE, LED Shoe Clips.

Custom Stationary by Design*Sponge. I know Maps are really “IN” right now but I’m not a big maps as decoration person. I look at this and see the potential for scrapbook paper scraps. I could make stationary with my favorite scrapbook paper, or wrapping paper, or I could make pager out of paper scraps for a quilt-like look.
I spent last week hanging out with my parents at the Hospital. I had a feeling watching someone sleep was going to be both boring and stressful. I threw I crochet hook, and some black yarn in to my carry on and watched a few episodes of Intro to Crochet on Craftsy.com. About 4 days later I had a really messed up looking ball that I’m trying to pass off as a hacky sack. 2 days latter I had this!!! Its a Dog, no trust me its a Dog… I think.
No really, its a dog. His name is Buddy, and he will eat your face off if you call him a rabbit. Its a sensitive subject.
