UPcycled – Vintage Frame Thread Holder

When I first set up my craft/sewing room I set out on the hunt for the run of the mill mini rack spool holder for my small collection of thread.  Unfortunately there is not a variety of thread storage available at the big name stores.  Not to mention they are not cheap!  I caved and bought… Continue reading UPcycled – Vintage Frame Thread Holder

Thrifting and Owl Tot Moccs

Thrifing has found its way into my life once again.

Baseball Themed Coffee Cozy and No Shame in the Crochet Game

This was my attempt at a baseball coffee cup cozy.  I made it in San Francisco Giants colors as a gift request for a baseball fan.  Sometimes the smallest projects are the most challenging!

Paper Heart Garland

When decorating for a party, it is nice to have something unique and eye-catching.  However, finding something that is not typical party decor can be a little difficult.  It can be costly for "stock" disposable cliché garland and banners so I why not change that!
