eBags, yet another amazing Colorado company. Seriously, they sell handbags online, what’s not to love?! Well now they have their own line of handbags, luggage and more. So there are a few more reasons to love them.
The iPhoodie. Hoodie for your iPhone. It’s getting to be fall so don’t you think your iPhone deserves to be cozy? (If this looks familiar to you die hard knitters… I have had the pattern on Ravelry for a while now.) I’ve had this pattern on Ravelry for almost 2 years. It’s received 3,000+ “likes” […]
I love knitting. It really calms me down when the kids are driving me crazy or I’m stressed out about writing or deadlines. I knit all sorts of things, coffee sleeves, iPhone sweaters, little stuffed animals for the kids. I’ve even knit Godzilla and Mothra.
Brady’s room has been all about dinosaurs since he was born. We have a jumbo dino rocking chair, a huge animatronic triceratops, pillows, stuffed animals, wall stickers and more. He had an adorable quilt from Pottery Barn Kids in his crib, but he’s outgrown that. It was a little too “newborn” and I wanted a quilt that could last him through to a twin bed. What’s a crafty mom to do? Well, make a quilt I guess.

Are you on there? Do you love it?! Do you need an invite? I’m a tad obsessed! Here is my profile if you want to follow. http://pinterest.com/coloradomoms/ I have a couple of funny ones, well funny to me anyway. Like my “Amen” Board where I post things like, well, you just have to see them to […]
Again with the words. Sorry! If you are my Sister-in-law, DON’T LOOK! There, now that she’s gone, I can show you the blanket I designed and crocheted for my soon-to-be niece. I’ll have the pattern available on the blog and on Ravelry.com soon, but here is a sneak peek. For more inspiring photos, check […]

Each took just an afternoon to make, the salamander bookmark actually took less than an episode of Jerseylicious! All 3 of these can be found on Lion Brand’s website. These are free patterns and all you have to do is sign up for their […]
I’ve been knitting and crocheting up a storm. To check out all my recent projects, follow me on Craftsy! This week I’ve written up a pattern to my favorite phone case. It’s a simple crochet phone case that you can modify to fit any phone. Add a decorative button or a crochet flower to give […]
I’ve been knitting again. It’s super therapeutic for me. Watch some cheesy chick flick while knitting. Makes my stress melt away. My best friend Kate and I went to Fort Collins recently to visit The Loopy Ewe and My Sister Knits. The first is yarn heaven as it has aisles and aisles of super yummy, soft, gorgeous […]
If you are like me, you wait until the last possible minute to think of something fun to make for family and friends. I can’t very well start a blanket that will take me a month to knit with just weeks to go before the Holidays. I’ve got to think smaller. Here are 5 […]
My boys and I love to build gingerbread houses, but if it doesn’t come in a kit with everything for me, it won’t get done. I love kits. Kits for knitting, kits for baking, kid crafty kits, you name it, I probably bought it at Michaels! So here is our Gingerbread House And the cute […]
I love getting all crafty. Recently, I was going through a tub in my basement marked “#CraftyCrap” (natch) and found this mini photo album I made waaaaaay back when I used to be a Close to my Heart consultant. I love it because it is from when Carter (now 8 years old) was first born. […]
