Hey everyone! We are on vacation for the next several weeks! We will miss hanging with you all but look forward to catching up on our return. 

While gone we have some plans to change the blog a bit and hopefully you will be as excited about the changes as we are. 

While we don’t guarantee we will be posting each and every week our goals are to blog on this schedule:

Mon – WIP and Crochet Patterns

Wed – All things Crafty!

Fri – Sustainability – this is something we are really interested in and want to share our adventures as we learn the art of homesteading and sustainability. Should be fun and probably messy! :) And assorted other posts.


If you are looking for the parties we used to host visit the co-hosts to link up. We are switching our focus and no longer hosting though we will hope to visit and link up ourselves! Click the links below:

Snickerdoodle Sunday Link party #96

August 29, 2015By 0 Comments

 It is with a sad heart that we announce we will no longer be hosting Snickerdoodle Sunday.  When we first started this party we had no idea the party would become so popular! We also had no idea we would stray so far from what we originally started blogging for. A few years ago when we started blogging our goal was to share our crochet, have some fun crafting and spend time together bonding and growing our relationship. This past year has found us drifting apart as we try to do more and more with the blog and less and less with each other. We are going to take a bit of a break and come back in a few weeks sharing the fun we have while bonding, crocheting and crafting together.

Creative Craft Challenge August

Hey Everyone! Kristina and I have decided to take a bit of a bloggy break and work a do-over on the blog. We have let the blog come between our relationship lately instead of using this crafting time to bond. One of the big changes –  we will no longer be hosting the Craft Challenge party.

No worries, the other hostesses will keep the party going! You can visit their blogs to link up:

Thank you everyone for your support of our blog and visiting our parties. We will miss having the first chance to see your creativity but we will still see you on your blog and at other parties. 

Keep on crafting, Kristina & Millie

Evenings with Etsy # 6 – Halloween Fun

August 26, 2015By 0 Comments

Hi all! Kristina here. I LOVE Halloween, it is my FAVORITE holiday of the year, yes even more than Christmas! As such I like to make fun Halloween-ey patterns. With Halloween approaching I wanted to share some of our larger Halloween costumes (in a few weeks we are sharing our animal hats).

What little boy doesn’t want to be Batman? Or make it for a girl and she can be Batgirl! Woohoo. The cape pattern is included so you could always just make the cape in a different color and be a different super hero or get our super hero cape pattern here.
