A little bit of this and that...

Last night was craft night. My mom started working on a crochet bag. It is amazing and I can't wait to try it for myself. It will be the perfect bag for toting my projects around in.


You can find the pattern here. Attc24 is an amazing blog chocked full of crochet goodness.

My brother thought it would be a nice hat, but it was a little too big.


I decided to try my hand at a few crocheted candy corns:



That adorable love bullets pouch is from Hot Butter on etsy. Ashley does an amazing job and it is the perfect pouch to carry all my crochet supplies.

My Aunt Paula is such a sweetie and is always willing to work out the nastiest knots in my yarn.

Doesn't it look like a big pile of spaghetti?

I did a little thrifting last weekend and found some amazing things to add to the shop and a couple of things to add to Poot Manor.

I love the recycle coffee mug!! The font is perfect!

My mom did a little "picking" while out on her morning walk. She actually found this out at someones curb out for the trash!

It is huge!!

I decided to add a little cuteness to my desk at work with a few goodies from the last craft swap I was in:


Tonight it is very cool and rainy. It was the perfect night for this for dinner:

This along with a grilled cheese=yumminess!

Sorry for all the randomness!

I can't believe that tomorrow is already Friday. I love four day work weeks. Well...I am off to do a little crocheting.
XOXO
