Crochet Owls

I've been spending a lot of time playing around with crocheting little owls :)

I still don't know how to follow a pattern... but I'm OK with that, because then everything I make tends to have it's own personality!

I started out making the owls by sewing on fabric wings and eyes and beaks.

 Now I've begun just crocheting all the little bits and pieces to them :)

 I make them in all shapes and sizes :)  Since I don't follow a pattern I make up the size of the owls in relation to other random objects.

  • Extra Small = A quarter
  • Small = A cupcake
  • Medium = A large Cup-O-Joe
  • Large = A loaf of bread

Valentines Day Decorating

Valentines day is rapidly approaching  so I decided it was time to put craft some loving around the house! As you can see we love movies... a little bit too much... and I've been pining over all the cute word art on Pinterest lately.  So I took two of my favorite romantic movies/books (The Princess Bride - Pride & Prejudice) and made word art out of the quotes that make my heart flutter every time Westley and Mr. Darcy utter them <3 

I downloaded some pretty fonts from, printed and framed them!  

It's super easy and super adorable :)

I've been oogling at all the cute garlands on Pinterest so when I ran across Cornflower Blue's adorable blog I made some tiny crochet hearts for my very own!  Cornflower Blue's blog shows and explains every step with a picture!  Click on the picture below to learn how to make a crochet heart for someone this Valentines day!

This furry guy has a slice of my heart :)

  but then he unraveled the crochet heart I gave him... 

As cute as they are I wouldn't suggest giving them to your pets...
Namaste and Happy Valentines day friends!
