My Puppy Pal Blanket Crochet Pattern - PDF Download

I love to take inspiration from my family, friends, and the world around me, and this applique piece really reminds me of our little dog when she plays and gets feisty with my little ones. She puts her little bum way up in the air, starts to wiggle, wags her tail and jumps. It is just so precious! Everyone giggles and

Who doesn't love a cute applique!?! I know I sure do! I just love appliqueing sweaters for kids and babies! They just add so much detail and make each piece so unique.

The Puppy PAL-ooza continues!

A favorite gift of mine to make for a new baby is a baby blanket. So, I just knew when I was designing this Puppy PAL-ooza line that it had to include baby blankets for you all to give your special little ones! Also, for my fellow crocheters, I'm going to be releasing the pattern for this blanket along with all the other

Grandma's Vinegar Dressing for Chicken Recipe - Cleaned Up!

The first cleaned up family recipe that I just couldn't wait to share with you is my grandma's vinegar chicken. This is a family staple in the summer, especially requested by my husband and son.

You could even say this is an heirloom recipe. It was born of

More Puppies! Baby Lovey Style!!

In my last Puppy PAL-ooza post, I talked about how puppy plush toys have been a good seller for me, but I didn't mention that another awesome item that I can't keep stocked are baby loveys, or security blankets. These are small blankets that are easy for a baby to snuggle, but not quite big enough to cover baby. I love putting a small plushy in the center of the blanket to give the baby something even more substantial to snuggle. I even

Eating Cleaner

My husband and I have struggled with weight loss for many years. We've tried several different things, and have managed to lose some weight. Lately, however, I've been feeling like I've hit a plateau. Well, maybe not so lately. Really, up until

Coming Soon - My Puppy Pal Product Line!!!

This little fella has been my best seller as both a crochet pattern, made to order toy, and I even had a couple finished dogs in my shop for a while, but they all sold out!! So, I've decided it was time to revamp and upgrade this pattern, to be relaunched in conjunction with a whole pile of puppy goodness!

Cuddly Bear Crochet Pattern - PDF

Ever since I started crocheting and designing my own patterns I have always wanted to design a bear. The kind that was big, cuddly, and ready to go on adventures! My two little ones are always taking their bears on adventures, sleeping with them, and sometimes I think they play with them more than they play with any other toys.

Bunny Rabbit Hat - Crochet Pattern - FREE PDF

UPDATE: Happy Easter!!! I am so happy to now be offering this super cute rabbit for FREE!

Okay, this is probably one of my favorite hats that I have ever designed! Living in the Northeast of the US, it can still be quite cool in the morning and evening throughout the Spring season, so I still like to put hats on my little ones. This one fits the bill perfectly for that job!

Two Tone Sweater Set Crochet Pattern - PDF

The Two Tone Sweater was, and still is, one of my most popular free patterns, but I had only written it for a 3 month size; and just the sweater itself. So, I decided it would be great to turn into a full set like all my other sweater set patterns. I've included a hat, booties, and sizes 3, 6, 12, and 18 months.

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Recipe Rebel

As you all know, I love to design and crate my own recipes for both cooking and baking. I've tried tons of different chocolate chip cookie recipes, and it seems that they always end up either flat and hard, or too gooey; never the right texture when I'm craving one!

One day I was searching around and happened to stumble upon this recipe, and the picture caught my eye. So, I decided to give 'em a whirl!

Thank you for 100 sales on Etsy!

I have some really exciting news! My Etsy shop reached 100 sales over the weekend!! I am really excited!

I opened my shop back in April 2013, but honestly I really didn't put much effort into it as Facebook seemed to keep me very busy. Over the past couple of years I also tried many other platforms to sell my crochet patterns and finished items, but, about a year ago I realized that Etsy really was the place that I needed to be.

UPDATED!! Baby Girl's Fancy Shell Sweater Set Crochet Pattern - PDF

The Fancy Shell Sweater Set Pattern is one of my most popular sweater set patterns. However, I had originally only designed this sweater in two sizes. So, I just HAD to upgrade it to include all FOUR of my baby sizes (3 months, 6 months, 12 months, and 18 months) like all of my other baby sweater sets!

Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwich Recipe

Here is a fun little something extra to throw in with all that left-over ham that so many of us have languishing in the freezer. It's a lot like a traditional hot ham and cheese sandwich, but I wanted to take it to the next level! So, I looked through my cupboards and refrigerator to see what I had to spice up this old favorite!
