Flower Coasters

I saw a link to the pattern to make these coasters on Facebook. I thought I would give them a try. My first one I followed the pattern exactly, but it left a hole in the middle of the flower. I made the second one but I started with a magic ring instead of how her directions had me start it and no hole in the center.

They were easy to make and I like them. My husband on the other hand wasn't so sure about them. He didn't think people would know that they were coasters and he wondered if anyone would use them. Tell me your thoughts. Would you know? What is a cute way to tell someone it's a coaster if you gave as a gift? Would you use them if you got them?

Thanks for stopping by.

Amigurumi Spring Bunny

I think I am obsessed with crocheted animals. I think they are so cute. This pattern is by A Morning Cup of Jo and its really easy...until you assemble. Like the reindeer I made earlier, I struggle a little to put it all together. Ive gotta figure out an easier way.  But, despite my struggle, I love the bunny. Cute huh?

I like to try things I find on Pinterest. I found an idea for cleaning grout. I've found several ideas, but this one was easy as far as I could just buy it and use it...didn't have to mix things, etc. It worked really good. It was time consuming but I am happy with the results. 
You get Clorox with bleach toilet bowl cleaner and clean your grout with it. I have it pinned on my Pinterest if you want to save it.
Here is a picture of it in progress

Oh, and do not wear pants you want to keep nice. I was doing good for a while, but while I was scrubbing I moved and got it on my pants. Not a happy ending for my pants.

Thanks for stopping by.

Halloween Treats

I found these on ETSY. You purchase a download and it gives you everything but the candy and cellophane to make these. So easy and cute! I made them for the ladies I work with at school. I also bought them in Thanksgiving and Christmas! 

They are cute, huh?

Halloween Treats

Just thought I would share a couple Halloween goodies I made.
I made these little coffins for the ladies I go visiting teaching to.

Then I made a bigger version of the candy box I have made before. I actually made this for my son to answer for a dance. He put candy in it and said: It would be a "TREAT" to go to girl's choice with you.

Thanks for looking!

creative ways to ask/answer for date dances

My son came up with his own idea of how to ask. It was kinda funny. He left this on her doorstep. You lifted to see his name.
"Lettuce Turnip the Beet at homecoming."

She answered really cute and with the same idea he started.

Homecoming idea to ask

Homecoming is coming up. I paper pieced the owl on here. I told him to write "GUESS 'HOO' WANTS TO TAKE YOU TO HOMECOMING". He didn't want to leave the W off. :)
He put the letters of the alphabet in some balloons. The letters that spell his name he put in a different color.
