Doggie’s First Bath

February 12, 2016By 0 Comments

Hi all, Kristina here. As you may, or may not know, we recently adopted a tail-less black lab from the SPCA. She was fixed, of course, and we had to wait awhile before we could give her a bath due to her stitches. Once they were all healed up though we decided it was bath time! We were worried she’d hate it, I’ve heard horror stories of dogs fighting to get out of the bathtub and shaking soap everywhere but she loved it. Not much exciting to report about it but I thought I’d share some fun pictures! We used I (pawprint) my dog because it is all natural and I’m one of those, no chemicals! if I can help it kind of gals.

Beeswax Valentine’s Candles

February 10, 2016By 0 Comments

Hi all Kristina here. Mom and I had fun making little candles to give out for Valentine’s day!

Valentine's Beeswax candles with 2CrochetHooks

We used organic beeswax from Deluxe Botanicals that we had received at a discount. I loved that it came in small pellets as they melted quickly and evenly. I also loved that it smelled like honey. We didn’t even bother to try and fragrance the candles because the beeswax smells so pretty, like fresh honey. You can get some here if you’d like to try your own.

Question of the Day – Hero

February 9, 2016By 0 Comments

Hey everyone! Question of the day time woot woot!! So at two previous jobs I had the same supervisor and she called me Wonder Woman because no matter what she asked me to do, I was able to do the job in a timely manner and it was done well. (I grew up on the philosophy that anything worth doing is worth doing well and can’t help myself). Wonder Woman 2crochethooks

So if you could be a super hero (or villain) who would YOU be and why?

Do I age myself if I include this song for your enjoyment?

2crochethooks gift guide

Hi all! Continuing right along in our gift guide this one is for all those of us who have Keurigs. If your giftee is anything like me they love coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and/or cappuccino. The new Keurig coffee makers have a variety of options without having to buy a whole bag of coffee, box of tea, or box of hot cocoa. They even sell variety packs, I love it. However, even if you only use one type of coffee with the Keurig the question is how to store all those little cups without taking up a ton of space and junking up the cabinets, counters, or drawers? Well now they have tons of storage options, like drawers (which can make your machine too tall to fit under your cabinets!) or my favorite the little tower!
