So I have this new obsession with the Lacy Scarf. I definitely need some new pictures (working on that) as these do not do it justice, but the look is just so incredible and fun to make.
These are particularly fun because they are fashionable and not too warm, just warm enough to be a great accessory to any outfit. These can be customized in a variety of colors as well. It can be made in any color sets of 3 (shown here), 2 (every other row a different color) or 1 (solid).
These scarves are $20 shipped (US COST ONLY) and are available for purchase through either Etsy
or Facebook. Please feel free to contact me for any special requests.
And on to the reading front. My goal of reading 30 books this year is coming along well. I have recently started re-reading the Harry Potter series and just finished book one. In addition I also recently finished A Step of Faith, the newest in Richard Paul Evans Walk series and He's Gone by Deb Caletti. If you are interested in my reviews feel free to click the book links.
I recently got a Kindle and it has made reading a whole new experience. I've always been one of those people that felt books were books and it wasn't the same without the paper and the turning of pages and physically holding it in your hands and I still fully believe that. But as someone that takes the bus to and from work, it's nice not to have to lug some of the larger books I read around and it's nice to have variety without carrying 2 or 3 books (which is also bad for one's posture).
It's really hard to juggle my time between the things I love, but I seem to be managing better this year than last (guess that means I learned something lol). As always I love and appreciate all the orders I get and am happy to accept special orders. Happy Monday.

It has been a while since I've shared with everyone and have decided to write about my two hobbies, crocheting and reading. First on the crochet front, I have recently become slightly obsessed with the Crocodile Stitch. While it is time and labor intensive, it creates the most beautiful items. Take a look at my Crocodile Stitch baby blanket and Child's Scarf.
And now on the reading front, I have recently begun reading the Fifty Shades series. I have read the first two and am currently reading the third. If you are interested in either of my reviews you can find them here: Fifty Shades of Grey and here Fifty Shades Darker. While I know that some find this particular genre offensive, I personally enjoy the love story that this series portrays. It truly represents how love can conquer all.
