Despicable Me Posters
You all remember this little guy, right? Well, the folks over at “Illumination Entertainment” (the film production company behind “Despicable Me”) loved my crocheted Minion so much that they wanted to send me some “Despicable Me One-Sheets” for my efforts :) To tell you the truth, I didn’t know what a “one-sheet” was, but a quick search on...
Crochet Corner: Cup Cozy
In this week’s edition of “Crochet Corner”, we will be looking at the cup cozy. When I first made these cup cozies, I had no idea how popular they would become. My cup cozy tutorial is now the most popular tutorial/pattern on my blog :) I was thrilled to see them all over Pinterest and to hear everybody’s glowing comments. I had fun making the tutorial taking...
Urban Jungle Slouchy Beanie
Ever since I took up crocheting again, I wanted to make myself a hat. Crocheting amigurumi is fun and all, but once in a while it’s nice being able to wear something you’ve crocheted rather than having it sit on a shelf :) Crochet Pattern Central has a great directory of free hat patterns here. I wanted to find a pattern for a modern, trendy hat, and after looking at countless...
Crochet Corner: Valentine Teddy
I’m so excited to begin my “Crochet Corner” series where I feature YOUR work using my crochet patterns and tutorials!

And so, I’m always delighted to hear that people have...
I loved making the Spring Bunnies for CRAFT a while back, so when they asked me to design an amigurumi for Halloween, I very happily and excitedly obliged! The first things that jumped to mind were witches, cats, and pumpkins. I scoured the web for images to see what had already been done. As Ryan and I were brainstorming together, we thought of making a scarecrow since we could include more...
When we first moved into our new house last year, I was so excited to have my very own room set aside as my workspace. We had a blast furnishing the main floor so that we could invite and host people over. It was a challenge picking out pieces from different stores, trying to figure out how it would all look together. We really focused our attention on the den as we knew I would be spending a...

Despicable Me Minion
When we first saw “Despicable Me” back in July 2010, we absolutely fell in love with the movie. We didn’t really know what to expect going in to see it, but we were delightfully surprised with how heart-warming and thoughtful the movie turned out to be. We found ourselves laughing out loud all throughout, usually because of the antics of the hilarious minions. Fast forward...
