The  weather is changing and so are the colors of spring… I was inspired to make some Twisted Stitches Coffee Cozies in new bright spring colors!  I decided to try a few in Bright Cotton Yarn and see how they sell at Alpine Originals for the spring/summer season…  This pattern is available for free HERE or by clicking on the Patterns tab at the top of the page…

May,,, A beautiful month,,, Flower will begin to bloom,,, More sunshine,,, And my baby will turn 17 this month…

.

Like you know,,, I love to crochet… I have tried my hand at many other things and love to craft…  Alpine Originals keeps me quite busy with my crochet sales,,, but one of the other popular items I sell there are some adorable small boxes that I make out of Folded Sheets of beautiful paper… I make 3 sizes and yesterday they told me they were almost out of  my Hand Folded Boxes

So,,, I sat down at the kitchen table and whipped up 12 boxes in no time at all…I love to see how each one turns out once they are folded and glued in place…

Today is the last day of the Knit & Crochet Blog Week Challenge… I can’t believe I was able to post all 7 days!  It has been fun and I hope you enjoyed it too!  Our last assignment,,, Day 7,,, Is to talk about “Where we would like to be 1 year from now with our Crafting”…

I have already stretched myself this year by opening my blog and life up to all the world with my crochet… It has been a great experience so far…  But, my main goal in the next few months is to get my Etsy Store up and going… It isn’t so much the work it will take to get the store open,, Its more having enough crochet products  available…  Thanks to  my friends at our local store Alpine Originals, I sell many pieces each month there… So I will have to step up my game and get some things going for online sales… Who knows, all this crocheting could work into a full-time job at the rate I am going…

.

Since my topic for the last day is asking about the future, I didn’t have any pictures to post to go with the subject,,,, So, I though I would show you a few pictures from my life… Hope you enjoy!
