A Craftastic Weekend!

This past weekend was packed full of crafting and fun! I PROMISE to have the tutorial for the ripple afghan up before this weekend. Poot and I are photographing my steps and taking longer than I thought.
Here are the gifts I made for my momma's birthday:



A crochet hook holder! I am so making myself one of these now!

A wreath for her newly decorated kitchen.



A mixed cd to paint to!!

Everytime I pull out my crafting supplies my little craft mascot is always nearby:


This is little Betty Jo and she is as obsessed with yarn as I am!!

We made lots of yummy food and tried new wine!

Vampire Wine...very yummy!

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Cheesecake...so not on the diet!

Figs stuffed with ricotta, pistachios, and honey! So delicious!!
And my record player is finally back from the repair shop! It has been there for over a month because the ceramic element was out in the speaker! We have been listening to it nonstop....I love it!


This week is going to be fun and crazy busy! Baby shower, bingo, craft night, and anoter birthday celebration dinner for Poot's dad! I am so looking forward to it all!
Happy Tuesday!!
XOXO

I love the hook holder! Clever and very cute!

That cat has crazy PEOPLE eyes - growing up we had a cat, Muffin, and she had people eyes too! -It's weird!
