I've always loved fun ways to make something I love to display in my house. The Grapefruit coasters are adorable and make me thirsty!
It's a hard choice but my favorite has to be the jar covers... though I don't have any Mason Jars to do it to!
I love seeing new things to add to my home that I can make. Here are some useful items as well as a cute dessert!
Which pattern is your favorite? (I'd have to pick the Macaroons. XD)
Late summer evenings and early fall are the perfect time to head to the grocery store for some marshmallows, chocolate squares, and graham crackers. Let's not forget the one day out of the year we can dress up as our favorite character or hero and not be weird! Though I don't care for the creepy side of Halloween the costumes and the sweet delicious candy is one of my favorites. (Might have something to do with my sweet tooth.)
To that end I've been working on my fall pieces for the Etsy Shop. Now when I think of a white Halloween candy basket a white ghost is the typical thing that comes to mind. But since I didn't want to have a ghost for my first basket this year I tried to think of something else, and making it super cute was a given.
Hence the S'mores Marshmallow basket! At first I was only going to do the marshmallow, but while working on the sketches and talking with ladies at the Phoenix Business Boutique they suggested doing the full s'more with the traditional graham cracker and chocolate. They didn't think just the marshmallow itself would really explain what it was, and I had to agree with them.
Now that it's finished I might want to make a second 'toasted' one with a silly face. Not sure how I will make it look right and toasted at the same time, but that's what a sketchbook is for! Now I just have to resist the urge to eat it. (Yes I know its crochet, but it's so cute and yummy looking!)
Starting in July the basket and the pattern will be available in the Etsy shop along with others from the Fall lineup.
I've been crafting since early 2010 and have become "hooked" on crochet ever since. My inspiration often comes from my family and anything adorable.
