Loom Knitting

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything, but it’s because I am just so involved with my new projects I barley have time for anything else (please excuse the laundry pile that keeps growing 🤦🏼‍♀️).

The other day I decided to pick up my knitting needles again after almost a year of not making anything. But my project was progressing slowly as I am not a fast needle knitter. So like usual, I took to YouTube and Pinterest and searched for “how to knit faster.” My results? Showed some really fast knitters with incredible hand speeds, and something called loom knitting. I wasn’t completely unaware of loom knitting since my sister in law had a few round looms that she would make hats with. But I thought that’s all you could do.

Every video that I watched got better and better and I just could t stop! The next day I went to my local Hobby Lobby and purchased an adjustable long loom and some sugarwheel yarn by YarnBee.

I started my project last Tuesday night, and I finished it by Sunday! I can’t believe how easy and fast it was!

As soon as I was done with this blanket, I went on to making custom scarf orders! These and more projects can be found in my Etsy Shop!!!

Watercolor Name Gifts!

I have recently picked up a new art form. I have loved watercolor for years but never was serious about learning it until now. With our new house, came a great big attic space to stretch out and have space for all my craft & art needs. I'm still working on my space but love the energy in it already.

I have done a few small paintings to get my brush wet (no pun intended) and have also started to combine hand-lettering with watercolor. I've made and given a few gifts already and love the response I am getting from them! A co-worker even told me I should start selling them!

Here are a few examples and I hope you enjoy!

A Hot Digity-Dog Mickey Mouse First Birthday!

Kaleb’s First Birthday Mickey Mouse Themed Birthday

We had so much fun putting together Kaleb’s first birthday party! Everything you see below was hand-made with the exception of the Mickey Mouse Cupcake Towers, & Mickey Mouse Cupcake Papers.

The Mickey Mouse cupcake toppers were melted chocolate I put into a squeeze bottle and then traced over them on wax paper & let cool in the refrigerator. The Mickey Mouse month by month banner I hand cut from templates I printed online. Which makes me very grateful that my husband bought me my Cricut Explore Wireless! Makes cutting designs out so much easier and faster!

I’m going to keep this post short and sweet and might come back to it as some point to add more but I hope this post gives you some ideas to make your Mickey Mouse Birthday a hot-diggity-dog one!

My little Mickey Mouse Man!
