Little One's Keyhole Scarf

The cool weather is fast approaching, especially here in upstate New York. I mean we have already had snow! Hard to believe. I love wearing a scarf on chilly days and always have one on. They seem to add that little bit of extra warmth. My two little ones wanted one too, but I get annoyed with how they always blow away or fall off.

So, I designed one that is perfect for a little one and stays on! It is gender neutral, but full of texture, so both my daughter and son can wear it. They can easily be appliqued too, so you can add this scarf to any little winter set you are making! My two have requested snowflakes and spiders.

But, best of all the pattern is FREE!

I can't wait to see all our scarves!!

Holiday Bauble Bulb Orgnament Crochet Pattern - Free PDF Download

I can't believe how fast the holiday season is approaching, but I just love fall and winter! So, I am pretty excited!!

I love making crocheted Christmas ornaments for our family Christmas tree! Having a 3 year old little boy, a 5 year old little girl, and furry friends who love the ornaments; the bottom of the tree is not where I want any breakable ornaments. I also don't want it to be bare either, so I love to make crocheted ornaments for the tree! The kids can safely add them to the tree, touch them, and accidentally knock them off without fear of them breaking!

I also make a different ornament for all of our friends and family every year! I love when the holidays are approaching and they start to guess and get excited over what their ornaments are going to be! It also warms my heart when we go to their house and I see all of my ornaments on their trees!

So, here is one of the ornaments that I have designed. I wanted to share it with all of you too! And best of all it is FREE!!

It is so versatile! You can make it all solid to resemble a light bulb, or add a stripe or two to resemble a Christmas Bauble! All three variations are included in the pattern!!

I can't wait to see your beautiful bulbs and baubles!! Feel free to share here in the comments below, or on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Google+!!

It's been a really hot summer for out area. So much so, that I don't like to turn the oven on, but my kids are pretty spoiled when it comes to homemade treats. These cookies have been perfect on several occasions this summer.

We all have a huge love of peanut butter and dark chocolate in this house, so these cookies really hit the mark! You can really taste the peanut butter and chocolate; it is a the perfect blend of peanut butter and chocolate. Really hits the sweet tooth and pairs great with a glass of milk after dinner (or any time you like!).

Sunny Day Dress Set Crochet Pattern - PDF Download

I am so excited to release this pattern! Not only is it my very first crochet dress set pattern, but it is also my
20th pattern!!

I have always wanted to design a dress set from start to finish, and I have so many notes written down for several different styles. So, I picked a couple of my favorite possibilities from my list and went with it!

I'm calling this my Sunny Day Dress set because the pattern on the skirt reminds me so much of little rays of sunshine! Also, the hat with its ruffled edge is reminiscent of a fine lady's sun hat.

I wanted a set that wasn't too frilly, more of an everyday dress that a little princess could wear. My daughter always loves to wear a dress, but sometimes all the extra frills can get in the way …
don't worry I have frilly dress designs on my to design and make list! I love how this one fits the bill perfectly. It would be so adorable as is, or put on a cute little pair of tights and an undershirt for a cooler day! Oh so cute!

Whether you are making this set for your little one or to give as a gift you can't go wrong!

Nutter Doodle Cookies Recipe

These cookies are easy to whip up and taste divine! It is like a Peanut Butter Cookie and a Snickerdoodle cookie came together!! My little guy would have eaten a whole tray if I would have let him!

They are crunchy on the outside due to the cinnamon sugar coating, but so soft and chewy on the inside. What more could you ask for?!

Also, they are not over-powering in the peanut butter flavor either. Don't get me wrong, you can definitely taste it, but you can also taste all of the other wonderful flavors as well.

These cookies would be perfect to add your holiday cookie tray, take to a picnic, or just make to enjoy a special treat!
