Thanks for the recent support and encouragement about this blog. Although I started this as an unpublicized way of organizing my craft projects, it does mean a lot to have others appreciating what I've made and finding their own inspiration from it! Crafting has always been a hobby of mine, but it is something that I've been careful whom I talk to about it. I've been afraid that most peers would think I was a nerd for enjoying "old lady" things like sewing and crocheting. So thank you for being the ones who haven't judged! I am so blessed by the opportunity to be creative, and I hope you are too!
For those of you who normally read these posts through a feed subscription, come check out the actual blog! I've just made my own header, and I'm kind of excited about it :-).

Perhaps my favorite project yet! I stumbled on this pattern from Lion Brand's website a few months ago. Knowing that a close friend is expecting a baby at the end of April, and also that she is planning a jungle-themed nursery, I knew this precious little elephant would be a perfect shower gift!

Just a few weeks ago I finished this tote bag as a project carry-all for craft night with my friends. This was a major stash-busting project- more so than I anticipated! I began with almost a full skein of some cheap medium-weight sage green yarn (I forget the brand) and a decent amount of some similar lavendar yarn. Then I found this pattern on the Lion Brand yarn website (one of my favorite places to find patterns, if you haven't noticed).
