For Gift for Lisa from A Mermaids Crafts (Top Commenter 2014)

Happy Saturday to you all.

As many of you know I announced the Top Commenter for 2014 a few weeks back. With Corbin being here and being sick I'm just now getting around to getting something made for her (Lisa).

I had several things in mind. However, after getting out my crochet hooks and watching some YouTube videos I ran across this gorgeous lacy, frilly scarf and fell in love with it. I thought the colors were perfect for her. It has all the colors she uses most of the time in her cards, she love Mermaids and these colors reminds me of the sea. So I made it using the same colors as Melanie from IHeartStitcing.

Here is a Link to her video with step by step instructions.

I did not want to post the scarf until Lisa received it. It was delivered today.

Lisa I sure hope you enjoy your scarf and would love to see a pic of you wearing it. Hint Hint!!

A Scarf in a Day!! (Pocket Fringe Scarf)

Good afternoon my friends.

The past few days I have been crocheting. Years ago I made a few blankets, nothing fancy and learned to make 3 flowers. Now with all the videos on YouTube it sure makes learning MUCH more easy.

When I saw this scarf I knew I had to make it. No one locally had the Cobble yarn so I had to wait 2 days to get it in. Was a very long 2 days. lol

Naturally it is Red, since that is my favorite color.

I was shocked when I was able to make it 5 1/2 hours. Using the Cobble yarn really made it go fast.

Melanie from IHeartStitching has some great videos for anyone's level. Very easy to follow along with. Even a beginner like me had no problems making this scarf.

I do have another scarf that will be posting Friday or Saturday. It to is a IHeartStitching design. Can't post it until the recipient receives it. Don't want to spoil the surprise.

I really LOVE this scarf.
Would love to hear your thoughts.

New Years Resolutions

Happy Saturday my friends. It's a frigid day here in PA.
A whopping 7 degrees at 11:30 AM. We are staying in today for sure.

Corbin went home a few days ago. I so love having him hear. The house is too quite when he leaves. We had a good visit and look forward to Spring Break.

I have never been one to make New Years Resolutions. However, last year I did. Each resolution was centered around crafting and blogging. I was so excited on Dec 31st when I actually kept each one. That inspired me to make the most important one this year to become healthier.

Since retiring 11 years ago and Sam working from home we have really allowed out health and weight to get out of control.

Today we started on the

To check it out click here.

I purchased this program several years back and never did anything with it.

After going back through it and looking it up online I found they have a online version so I decided to do it. I think with it being online it will fit better into my daily life instead of all the books and CD's.

It will be hard for a little while because the programs requires you eat 6 times a day. I usually eat 1 or maybe sometimes 2 times a day. Which I know is why I have gained weight.

If you would like to follow along just click the link above "Our Food Lover's Journey" in the tab section. I will be sharing our ups and downs, menus, etc.

Well it's time for our morning snack. Hope to be back tomorrow with my first 2015 crafting project.

Happy New Year & Top Commenter for 2014

Wishing you all a year of good health, prosperity, and love.

I wanted to take a few minutes on this day to let each of you know how much I appreciate all of you who follow my blog. All the sweet comments that are left are GREATLY appreciated. When you create something and someone takes the time to leave a comment it means so MUCH!

This year my top commenter was
Lisa from A Mermaids Crafts.

In the few years I have been blogging, following blogs and commenting, I have found that Lisa really understands what blogging is all about, which is a person shares something and their followers leave a comment. Lisa has never missed commenting on my posts. If she is out of town or anything she always finds the time to go back and comment on every post she missed. She does this on every blog she follows or it seems that she does. I see her comments on just about every blog.

It never seems to matter if it is a card or not, she leaves a comment.

Thank you, Lisa, for being a True Follower.

Be on the watch, I have a little something heading your way soon to show my appreciation.
