New blog post on my site! Check it out! =D
I now have a crochet site up with a blog and shopping pages attached! Come check it out! It’s still sort of a work in progress… but I’m just too excited about it to wait much longer! There are also options to like ton Facebook and follow on twitter to stay updated on new info and crochet items for sale!
I know I haven’t written in a LONG time… But I’m needing some help…
I’m looking into writing out my original patterns and putting them into a book… My hubby MAY or may not be losing his job. We have a little one on the way, due in early October, just bought a house, and bills seem to be lurking around every corner. So, I’m attempting to try and help. Husband is all for writing out the patterns, as well as selling to those who don’t want to attempt or don’t know how to crochet.
So, my questions would be… Who might be interested that have seen my work? What suggestions do you have as far as getting published? What other patterns would you like to see in my book? Pricing? and so on.
Thanks for your help, and feed back!

Cute huh!? It’s a crocheted Triple Dip Ice Cream Cone! I made these last night along with the tiara, I didn’t take pictures of them til this afternoon for better lighting. But these are new in my etsy shop for $15… The Dips are not attached so they can be placed one at a time and used for several years… I can also make them in different flavors! The cone and first dip can be separated too… Check it out! AND extra dips can be ordered for more years of use!
What do you guys think of these cuties!?
Hey guys! It’s Saturday! yay! Today I’m working on one of my favorite Christmas family traditions… CANDY MAKING!!! Well, to be honest, none of what I make is really the true definition of candy… but it’s still amazing!
The tradition is… every year, a few weeks or so before Christmas, my whole family on my mother’s side would get together and make “candies” like peppernuts, cookies, fudge, CARMELS with and without nuts, homemade hot chocolate mix, chocolate covered oreos and pretzels, chocolate covered cheerio clusters, etc. portion them out for the 6 to 8 grandkids, put them in holiday tins or gift bags, and we grandkids would then give the candy gift away to someone who made a great impact on our life that year! The only catch is that it couldn’t be family, and most of the time not a close friend either…. this way we understood the reason for giving… to expect nothing in return… AKA so we wouldn’t get any of that candy we gave them.
There would always be plenty of peppernuts, carmels, and chocolate covered somethings left over for when we went to Opa and Oma’s house for coffee break between candy night and Christmas day…
Peppernuts - Ginger, Cinnamon, and nutmeg biscuts/mini cookies. SOOOO GOOD!!!
Peppernuts and a German/Russian Mennonite tradition around the holidays, sadly, in my house, a whole batch doesn’t last but 3 or 4 days with they way my hubby and I eat them… There are HUNDREDS of recipes out there, but my Oma’s is my favorite, and everyone really does theirs differently.
Oma’s actually calls for ground cloves… instead of cloves I put in the nutmeg… that’s my special twist.
The fudge we do is typically peanutbutter, smooth and crunchy… my cousins recipe is best… I’m still trying o figure it out right. LOL
The homamade hot chocolate is my mother’s recipe, it’s sweet, and has a LOT more chocolate flavor to it then the prepackaged stuff. =D Plus, with as big as the recipe is the batch lasts a 4 person family almost to the next holiday season!
AND In truth, The scheduled candy night with my family is TONIGHT!!! 12-10!!! So that’s why I’m making candies today as much as I can… But I’ll probably stick to peppernuts and hot chocolate then throw in some candy canes for cost purposes… LOL
I hope ya’ll enjoyed hearing about my family tradition of candy night… I wanna know about you’re Christmas traditions too! What’s your background? What brought on the traditions you have? Send pictures! or videos! I’m not able to go home for the holidays this year, so I thought I’d invite you all into my family to share in traditions!
Crochet Tiara! Now in The Cro-Petti Shop on Etsy! No two are going to be exactly alike!
What do ya think?
So I figured I’ll re work the pricing of the items in my shop… I’ve been told they’re a little high by a few people… so, I’m going to try and rework the prices and see how that goes… this whole shop is about trial and error… So this will go on for the next few weeks…
OH! I also found out the other day that I got approved to do my project for kickstarter, so keep an eye out for details, and all the ways you can help! I’m working on the details of what to put in the video, and the rewards!
Keep checking back to my tumblr and my etsy shop for changes… I’ll need help and opinions on the changes as well! Thanks for all your help so far!
