While we stay inside .. Why not cultivate a hobby?

In this post I will focus on why it’s great to start up a hobby.
It’s easy to get bored during these times at home. Maybe you even feel unproductive as you scroll through your phone or watch episodes and movies back-to-back. Our brains like to move, so of course we can beat ourselves up when the day is unfruitful. It’s the little things that make us feel productive, such as crafts or fun projects we work on step by step. Knitting and crocheting are great ways to keep your mind busy, because they’re easy to learn, it relaxes the mind and the body, and it’s a good pastime while you’re off from school or work.

Knitting and crocheting may seem difficult to learn, but in actuality, it’s not that bad! You just need to find the right materials and the right source of learning. Once you get the hang of the weaving and the movements, it’s downhill from there.

Crochet or knitting also relaxes the mind and body greatly. After a long day, I find that crafting is my happy place. I love working on a project next to the fireplace, watching a relaxing show with my family and crocheting or knitting away. Time passes so quickly too! So if you’re looking for something relaxing but brain training at the same time, knitting and crocheting are for you.
As previously mentioned, it’s a wonderful way to pass the time when you’re not busy with work. It doesn’t take tiring effort either as other crafts do. You just need to stay on that steady pattern and before you know it, you’re done!

There are many reasons why knitting and crocheting are such popular crafts, and why it’s been something passed down from generation to generation. And don’t get me wrong, it isn’t necessarily easy. It takes time, patience, effort, and space. But trust me, it’s all worth it! And that’s why it’s awesome to cultivate a hobby. It helps you relax and it also gives you something to do while at home. Knitting and crocheting are great for that reason!

This crochet pattern is available at my Etsy Shop now!

Coming soon! I’ll be working on a series to teach how to knit and crochet. We’ll focus on the basics first. Then we’ll start advanced projects, and we will have fun along the way! We’ll work on beanie hats, then scarves, then blankets, and finally we’ll get into pot holders and coasters. I hope I can teach you all how to knit and crochet!

Zig zag blanket ( also work in progress ). This pattern will soon be available at my Etsy shop!

Stay Home if You Can

First, thank you so much for your support to my small business, and for all the appreciation you’ve shown to me in your reviews since 2014!

As you know, the coronavirus pandemic is a very serious matter. Our country is on a national emergency due to the coronavirus, since it is spreading very rapidly. I believe it should be taken very seriously and all pre-cautionary measures should be used. This means that I won’t be selling handmade items and mailing them to customers. This would put myself and others at risk. However, I will be transitioning all my shop to downloadable items you can purchase. I know many of you will be bummed and I am too. However, our health is the priority.

As always, please take the steps you need to in order to keep yourself and others safe. I’m no expert when it comes to global pandemics, but always wash your hands, don’t touch your face, and practice regular hygiene. If you are sick, follow the procedures and steps necessary to keep yourself and everyone else safe. Wipe down surfaces, quarantine if you are sick or at risk and if you are sick, until the sickness passes. Stay informed always. This time may seem scary, but don’t panic, this too shall pass. This won’t go on forever and things will definitely calm down.

I hope that my downloadable crochet and Knitting patterns help you and bring joy to you and others around you. If you know how to knit or crochet then maybe you find a novel pattern in my shop that you had not seen before. if you do not know how to knit or crochet and always wanted to learn then this is a great time to set aside some time for that. We are being asked to stay inside, to be home and away from concentrations of people to help stop the spread of the virus. So what better moment to cultivate a hobby and love for crocheting or knitting. It is very relaxing so it may even help with the natural anxiety the current situation may cause. I will provide more details about new patterns that I will be posting, but in the mean time take a look at what’s posted in my shop already. I am leaving some pictures and images here if you want to start browsing.

Thank you, and stay safe! If you are sick, I sincerely hope you feel better soon.

Fa la la la la 🎄🎼🎄🎼

Where did 2019 go? We are now heading into this year’s Christmas season and the year will soon be gone!

As usual, I like to put together some unique, handmade decoration and gift ideas for the season of joy.

The reindeer and snow red scrunchies and the elegant red scrunchies below are available both in my Etsy shop and in my Hair accessories online shop also.

This year I also started to create some unique, fun, farmhouse fabric trees. Here they are and here is also the link to them.

New year – New you. Right? I always like to start the new year a bit more organized! So I designed and created a plastic bag dispenser which will make your life so much easier. It’s so handy and I designed them in beautiful fabric options.

You may choose from Fitness motivation, sunflowers, Pineapples and/or holiday theme fabrics! Click Here to learn more.

Finally, this year I started making amigurumi mini crocheted cacti in real clay pots with plant marker tags. They’re adorable! People have been reacting very positively to them and getting them from my shop. They make very cute gifts for garden enthusiasts, for Moms, Dads, coworkers, for BFFs and even for self!

They’re available individually and in sets. Find out more about these cuties here! 🌵

Have fun and enjoy this time of the year. Wishing you all Merry Christmas!🎄😊

Snow hats!

Fair isle style hats are so cute! In this one I wanted to have a snow-like effect on the bottom. Imagine this hat and ski slopes! Fun! 🙂

More about this hat here.

This hat was made using crochet so it’s faux fair isle. I’m very happy to start designing and listing fair isle hat in my shop.

Pumpkin Spice!

Pumpkin spice is my favorite thing this time of the year. So every year I have to find a nice, soft yarn in some kind of orange color that resembles pumpkin or pumpkin spice.

This pom pom hat was inspired by my girls. They love pom poms on hats and I don’t make enough pom pom accessories, just to be honest.

I crocheted this hat using a wool blend of a chunky yarn and a size H crochet needle. It’s super fun to make! More about this hat here.

Enjoy the pics!

Beanie Hats

Beanie hats are meant to highlight your beauty. So the simpler the beanie hat the better. After all this is about you! 🙂

I also like hats with pom poms .. don’t get me wrong. However, I really like the nice simple look of beanie hats. They are relaxed but have great personality!

In terms of this one, I made it using a simple, consistent crochet stitch. Then, the yarn is great too! This yarn is my favorite for making beanie hats. This is a super soft wool blend which makes it very comfortable to wear.

This beanie hat is also available in almost every color. More details here.


Recently a repeat customer asked me to make a custom order for her. I was happily surprised when I realized that she had uncovered a unique new item for my shop and for everyone else too. Her custom order came with a fun background. My customer said that she wanted a wine glass base so her guests knew how to identify their wine glass. She wanted to offer an elegant way to do this to avoid having people mistakenly drinking​ from someone else’s glass. Voila! This project idea was born!

This is a smart, beautiful gift idea for Mom, housewarming, newly Weds, etc. I also think these would be beautiful for a wedding table, adorned with some extras and in white or light color yarn.

Thanks for stopping by!
