Croch-heyyyyyyy!

at

Lately, I’ve been frustrated beyond all reason. 

And if you’re wondering what me being frustrated has to do with crocheting, let me explain..

I’ll be doing some menial task, like the dishes or sweeping, and BOOM — an idea for a blog post, or business graphic, but I can’t seem to just hunker down and get anything written + posted! My mind will race and for those few moments its on my mind I AM SO MOTIVATED! As soon as I sit down so that I can get started, it’s as if the motivation just decides to take it’s lunch break and I’m sitting in front of my computer, staring blankly at a white screen + flashing cursor.

I know, I know, it’s been AGES. Life got a little hectic and busy, okay?

Could this BE any more amazing?A few weeks ago I ordered this pillowcase on etsy.com from a little Utah-based company called Ander’s Attic (ships worldwide, and quickly, too!).These cases are wicked quality; handmade from a 100% cotton fabric and vinyl for the design, with a zipper close at the bottom that tucks away nicely so you can’t see it when it’s all closed up.You may think it’s pricey considering it’s a pillowcase, but I’m honestly very impressed with it. Having done a few craft projects myself, I know how…

No-Sew Pillowcase

at

A gloomy, cloudy Saturday makes for a perfect craft day!When I was rummaging through all of my clothes, I found a t-shirt that I loved, but it just didn’t fit right. I didn’t want to throw it away, so I decided to recycle it and turn it into a pillowcase! After getting a new bed and bed sheet set, I didn’t have enough throw pillows, but I did have one old, dingy pillow that desperately needed a facelift. Perfect!I don’t have a sewing machine, and to be honest, I don’t really know…
