Getting back in the game

I have been dealing with some inner demons lately. So I have been staying in and doing what I do best. Cook and be a mumma. (the name changes for me all the time, its our thing, I kinda like it) I've been doing some newer things too. I have like 5 mason jars in my fridge right now. Two full of strawberries, one of grapes, one of a homemade chicken soup, and one of a pasta little one and I really enjoy. We have stopped buying so much pre-processed foods and have started also buying food fresh. Whether its meat or veggies or fruit. And I have noticed an up in our moods having better foods in our body.

I also put up my spring wreath and my neighbors think I've lost it, but my plants are still saying spring is so very close and I'm excited. Have I told you I started a pinterest? I like it very much. I like how I can organize it, because of course I am addicted to things I can organize and it makes me feel more centered.

And in other news, IronMan had surgery. Lol. And he loves his new replaced hand. You see, this particular IronMan had hands you could interchange and I didn't want to tell my little man no to the Mark 5, so I took two hands and I glued them in with super glue. (he was 2 at the time) And in the last couple months one of his hands snapped off. So I had to take the drill and a small drill bit and drill out the super glue and broken part and install a new one. Oh yhea, this mumma loves her tools. :p 

Doing my best to be the greatest to my little one and Mr. Love. And waiting for springs blooms.

Hearts to you

Valentines day hearts for the bunting I made for Katelyn. They were so much fun to make and I absolutely love the little one in the middle. I got the pattern from here and it was very easy to follow. After I made my first one I just oohed at how smooth all of it looked. 

I can't wait to finish my own set of them. I will admit that I was going to do something different and do a heart then a mustache because I saw that she liked them but I just could not find (or make) a pattern for a really nice flat and larger crochet one. It may be something I have to sit down and make in some free time for to make my own pattern. If anyone didn't see what I got from Katelyn in the last post, she made me a wreath! 

I adore it! 

Time to put on Pandora radio and clean up the house more. Mr. Love will be home around dinner and he was away @ work for two weeks this time. Martinis + movie + Mr. Love = Heaven.

Is it spring yet?

One day we had this weather...

Less than a week later we had this weather! (can you tell he won't wear anything but this hoodie, he loves it)

My lil one had so much fun both days. The first we got to grill out and play in the mud on a 60 degree day and the next day we were out and about it was almost 2 inches of snow. What silly weather we have. 

I know what the groundhog said and I know that I'm in the same state as him but his shadow and my plants are saying two very different things. I have mini hostas coming up and my mother has daffodils poking up! Either way we're having fun and I am loving the beautiful sun shine that we have been getting!! 

I also on Friday finished my project for the Valentines Craft Swap over @ 

Wanna see my craft I got in the mail from Katelyn @ 

I love it so!! Grey is my most favourite color ever. (even though Mr. Love has tried to get me into wearing and decorating with brighter colors, tee hee) It looks great on my door and I didn't have a Valentines day wreath yet. :)

My way too long procrastination list

Firstly, for all of those whom have talked to me about something and I have procrastinated here is a cuteness picture to make you smile.

Secondly, I have my list down to about 6 things, and at the beginning of the month it was so long I had a scroll bar on my sticky note on my desktop.

I get so caught up in things and in my own life sometimes that I make this little list in my head of things I have to do, and each day it gets longer and longer. And then the things I really love doing get pushed alllllll the way to the back.

Here are some other pictures of things I have been doing...

Things are getting done and I am spending more time doing things like setting up train sets and playing with my little one and Mr. Love and I have had a few relaxing evenings. And I am also doing a valentines craft swap - 

Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!!!

New crafts and gifts for friends

Lots of things have been going on over @ our house. And I was finally able to get some silver yarn to finish up a hat for a friends little girl. :) Late Christmas presents anyone? I also was able to finish a size medium set of fingerless gloves that I am going to post on the etsy shop. I haven't been crocheting allot lately because there has been so much cleaning to do around the house. Its absolutely crazy!

Today has been a morning of scooby doo and my crochet hooks and some really lovely coffee.

My animal child and my real child decided they have taken an interest in my yarn today. And my little one refuses to take off his hoodie for me to wash it since he got food on it @ breakfast. Silly boy. 

For once the fingerless gloves I'm making are for me! Lols. I keep on doing these really lovely pairs and then went to a store a few weeks ago and picked out a yarn I really loved to do my own in. But I'm making the part for the thumb longer as I think I like it better that way. ;) Even though in the picture my fingers look super short and chubby, lols. And on finishing the first one, my animal child decided to go after my crochet hook. 

Silly girl! I hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday!

The last few weeks have been a learning experience for both little one and I. Mr. Love and I have realized that we need a little more learning reinforcement hands on. So I made flash cards and you wouldn't believe how much little one enjoys doing his letters and colors with me!

To make them I just used the craft room basics and it was my first project ever using the cricut craft room. So I learned a few things as well.

This was my first time melding things on my cricut and I realized how much fun it was and how nice it was too.  I also did the alphabet that I have yet to take pictures of yet but I did it in ironman colors and little one is very happy about that as well. I like that I have started to use my cricut in ways that just fits all of our life. And had lots of fun doing it too!

We have lots of snow here in Pennsylvania right now and I am loving it, I can't wait to take little one out sledding since we didn't get any snow till January. I love it, it looks so pretty. :)

New years and SnOw!

New years was calm. Lol. As you can see. A glass of wine, a movie, bon bons, and the cat. A good new year, Mr. Love went out of his way to have time to snuggle me. Definitely better than last year by far. In which I was alone and had no kitten and Mr love was very far away traveling. Little one was (and still is) sick with a cold.

Yesterday I spent quite a bit of time making new fingerless gloves (sold at our etsy on the right) and I think I'm going to make little crocheted hearts to go with these ones and call them sweetheart sets. :)

It snowed quite a bit today, so after it took a break I finally brought my fairy garden in. I hadn't before because it had been 40-50's outside and had no reason to. But sadly I did today and made her a snowman. She's waving goodbye to the nice weather...

Really hoping we have enough snow tomorrow for little one to go sledding, I know he would really adore that this year. Last year he was skiddish, and the year before he cried. But my adventurous little toddler hopefully will enjoy it greatly this year.
