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.

Favorite Things Party πŸŽπŸŽ

I don’t know if you have heard of the party called favorite things party, but apparently Oprah had a show and gave everyone some of her favorite things she uses everyday or just loved and can’t live without.

I looked on Pinterest to get some ideas on how this party works exactly because I figured instead of the Chinese auction we could have a favorite things party. People do play the game a little different one blog said that you would fill out a short fun survey and which ever guest correctly named who filled in the survey could go up to the table and pick a gift of there choice which I like but then I read that the person who starts like the hostess would draw three names and those three people would get the her favorite gift.

Have you heard of this game? If so how do u play your game and list some of the cool ideas and gifts that you have seen or had at your party. Here are a few pictures from blogs and pinterest.

Breast Cancer Awareness Cookies πŸ™‹πŸ’•πŸͺ

October is breast cancer awareness month and we have recently had a coworker diagnosed with breast cancer this month. We decided to have a gathering before she went for her surgery and chemo to encourage her through this journey. We all got together to bring food and gifts that she will need through this process. Here are the pink chocolate chip cookies I found on Pinterest that are pink. I actually had hot pink food coloring so I used that instead of the red. U can’t tell from the actual pictures how bright pink they were lol.

Cut down on identity theft πŸ’°πŸ’³

After being a victim of identity theft myself (long story), and hearing countless stories from Facebook friends, family and my students about their identity theft situations. I decided to try and make some of the items a bit prettier buy putting a special touch to my aluminum wallets. I am sure I can sell a few of these products since everytime I turn around someone else is telling me they are too.

The identity theft issues need to be addressed and everyone needs to protect themselves and we do the best we can to prevent this from happening at all or again. I just heard this info online not sure how true it is but there is a gadget that can be used by the thief that can collect all the info on your credit cards just by standing next to you for a few seconds. This info was scary to me and I did some research having a aluminum wallet and wrapping your cards in aluminum foil will help because the gadget that I spoke about above can not get through the foil or aluminum wallet.

Well I am sure in another year or less they will have figured out a way around this and we will have to come up another way to protect ourselves again. We just have to stay a few steps in front of them.

Soon in my etsy shop I will be selling the long aluminum wallets that also could hold a check book and has a small mirror inside as well. I bought a pink one for myself and decided to add a special touch to mine and it really has improved the look of this wallet. Keep checking my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.con/shop/ahindle78 to see when I add this item as well as some new designs and products as I prepare for the holiday season.

Here is a pic of my wallet
