Paint Night πŸ–ŒπŸŽ¨πŸ–ŒπŸŽ¨

My mom has been wanting to go to a paint night event. She actually went to one a few weeks ago and painted on canvas a painting of the three dogs. It looks really cute my sister is actually going to take it and hang it up in her house. 

Anyways my mom seen there was a pint night event right down the street from her work so we bought tickets to go, it was actually inside the local gym which includes a bar. I know what you are thinking a bar in a gym. It was the same thing we were thinking lol. Pretty weird I know as I am sitting there painting people are behind me working out lol. 

The only thing I can think is that this bar/sub shop in a gym is because they have a huge pool outside and in the summer people get hungry and needs food and drinks I guess lol. 

Pint night was fun it was a painting of a heart with lady bugs. Here is the instructors painting. 

  

Here is my painting 

  
Here is my moms painting 

  
My moms coworker Kevin this was his painting he kind of went off and added special touches to his painting but I love it.

Home Decor πŸ’‘πŸ”¨

I have been on Pinterest looking at so many home decor ideas and pinning them to my boards to only sit there. I know a lot of us do this, I wish I could have someone come over bring the stuff I need and decorate for me lol. Not to mention pay for it as well. (Just kidding) unless u are giving me a huge gift and have money to share lol. 

It is slowly coming together a few months ago I convinced hubby to go with me to get a leather sofa but we decided on the durablend leather material instead because of the dogs nails. A fact I didn’t know is that real leather scratches, not to mention the price of real leather is extremely expensive and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on the sofa. 

I ended up finding a sofa at gardiners furniture store. I am so glad I went to see 50 shades of gray that day with friends and one of their friends said go next door and look they have great furniture all price ranges and that is where I found my sofa. Plus it was on sale and no taxes eithe who could beat that but now I am kicking myself because I didn’t get the chair and would like to have the chair but do not want to drive far to the warehouse and delivery is $80. 

Anyways I have been buying a few small items when I see them to add to the decor in the living room which I decided will be hints of teals and oranges. My favorite color is purple but I must say I love teal a lot too. 

I had seen a lot of people using books as decor on their coffee tables and wanted to see if I could find some in teals and oranges and I finally did and they look so cute I just love them. 

Here is a pic  

Here is a pic of the pillow I added to my sofa and also the blanket I made for the sofa in the colors I needed. 

   

 

I am sure I will be writing a update on my living room decor soon again with my new additions. I almost forgot I ordered this from etsy to hang on my wall as well. 

  I had the etsy shop owner add a little more teal to the middle flower to give me a little more teal.

Donations of baby hats πŸ‘’πŸŽ©πŸ‘Ά

I have started to make baby hats for the local hospital with a loom I purchased from walmart. I had a ton of yarn so why not make hats and donate them. One hospital couldn’t take any more donations so I started giving them to another hospital in Baltimore.
Here are some pics I took of the hats I made.

Learned How To Crochet Over the Holidays πŸ‘

Right before thanksgiving I decided to try to learn something new like crocheting. A lot of people at work do this at night while watching tv and during lunch time. I never want to ask them to make something for me so I decided to try myself. However I haven’t started learning the many items I would love to have yet but hey one step at a time.

Lori helped me a lot and still is and is going to start taking some classes at the local craft store to get more ideas and styles to crochet. She makes prayer shawls currently for the local hospital.

If interested in purchasing a prayer shawl you can go to my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78 to see the one she saved to put on my etsy shop to see how they sell. These shawls are very warm and makes a great gift for any patient. Think about a friend or family member who may be having chemo this would be great for them during their treatments.

Anyways back to my lessons I decided to you tube scarves and made a few of those will Lori helping me along the way. Still haven’t got it down 100% but hey I am impressed with how it came out and u can tell it is a scarf lol. I need to work on the ends for some reason I must stop ahead or too far out before I start the next row so the ends are all over the place.

So the pics above are some of the scarves I made. I also made one for the dog u will see in the next post.
I decided since the ends aren’t great to add some fringe to cover up my mistakes. So now I have a knitting loom hopefully this will be easier for me to use for some projects.

Harley 🐢🐾🐢🐾

Here are some recent pictures I took of harley. I made him a scarf but he really didn’t like it. He loves his bandanas but he scarf oh no he hated it and tried to rip it apart lol. I am just learning how to crochet and he is going to destroy my first project.
