Basic Mitten Cuff Tutorial

Trying to adjust the color of my lettering to burgundy and not remembering how makes this monday manic, frustration sets in for the awaken moodiness, and it’s tiring not only from that but the weather isn’t the greatest outside it’s cloudy, and rainy. the air is crisp and the temperature is an enjoyable 51 degree’s for winter this is outstanding.

Anyways, annoyed as I was when it was colder outside and not having a yard for my dog to run in is harder for anybody. To step out in the chilly air without any gloves or mittens was beyond reasonable. Upon returning inside the house trying to warm up my hands went to place my hands under warm water only to find it absolutely freezing, more freezing than the cold water. What on Earth? I ran the hot water for twenty minutes still cold. I thought: Who can I call to see if maybe my hot water tank flame blew out? Hmm, I wondered the neighbor was working, the man of the house was running errands, and I couldn’t get the wall off to see if the flame was out. Well I waited till 7 pm the man of the house came home and took down the wall and lit the flame and we had hot water. Woot-Woot 

Besides all of that my hands were still freezing, the temperature that day was minus 18 degree’s. I didn’t have any gloves or mittens. So I found this really neat video on how to make mittens, this is how to make the cuff first before the actual mitten itself.  I’m sure after this video is the second video on how to make the mitten. Pretty color and easy to make if you know how to crochet.





Two Days



Hello All, I am quite busy since the holidays have passed, Birthday’s came and went. Then I’ve been crocheting small things while having the HUGE 6 foot blanket in between the little well needed things I’ve been making. I found a pattern for the swiffer mop. Yes the company makes these swiffer pads that you use once and throw away, depending on the size of container you buy. 8 count pads, 12 count pads or 36 count pads.  One day I ran out of the pads I had the 36 count ones. I bought the non-brand kind thought it was a great value and used 2 or 3 of them and was disappointed. Well as I was searching for a certain baby blanket pattern, I came across this pattern for a swiffer mop cover. I was ever so excited!! I just bought a couple months ago cotton yarn and was going to make cotton washcloths, towels, soap bar saver’s, scrubbies for dishes, and other cutsie things for my girls all handmade goodies placed in a light wicker basket all dressed up in pretty tissue paper with a pretty bow at the top handle for them.

Here’s the puicture that tickled me pink ~ 


I made one. Told my oldest daughter about it and she wants one too. Before too long I’ll be making a bunch of them to sell. Maybe some for my sister’s for xmas next year. It took me two days to make and it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. It actually works better than the swiffer wipes.  Not a bad Monday at all….

Crochet Pooling Making Plaid

I was looking for a different pattern for another blanket, might even do this for a baby blanket. This video to me is exciting and interesting.  Thought I’d share. This isn’t my video, I can’t take credit for that. I love this pattern though. This is my 1st niche’. Crocheting is my favorite hobby. It’s also relaxing, it calms your mind. 

It’s Crunch Time!

I have been trying to get my daughter’s blanket done Crocheting 450 stitches in an hour is time consuming, and still after taking breaks periodically here and there I’ve been procrastinating.  IT’S CRUNCH TIME! I would like to get it done before her Birthday this year. We shall see.. I’ll be writing 2  articles a day maybe 3, and then the rest of that day I will be crocheting. 

Who Inspires You?

I have many famous people and ordinary people whom I’m inspired by,  Richard Carlson Ph.d a well known writer and author of many Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff Books. After he’s been deceased his wife has become a writer taking the lead in writing books of her own.


P!nk a well known Singer performer, nobody liked her in her in her younger year’s. When she first started making her way in music industry. P!nk not only sings but her performance’s are outstanding and incredible. She does all her own stunts and her band is so original .

Eminem He hasn’t gotten in the Hall of Fame for being the biggest selling Rapper yet, Although he should be. His songs are extreme hits, they are played in movies, commercials and on the radio. He is very talented in writing and expressing what he feels in his lyrics.


Blogger’s that I have been reading lately are some of the most fascinating people, talented in what they write, their articles have meaning and most aren’t recognized like others could be. The one Blogger whom I follow most is: nananoyz, Praying for Eyebrows. Another one I follow that stands out to me is: (Don’t Label My Kid! Coaching & Counseling Team) and another one is: theheartsphere.  There are more of the Blogger’s I follow. Just a few that I named is good enough for right now.
