Positive Reinforcement Mirror

Hey All! Millie here with a  new gift from the Handmade Christmas Blog Hop! A bunch of us crafty bloggers got together to brainstorm 1 gift a month we could make for the people on our Christmas list. By making a few gifts all year long that MIGHT relieve the usual last minute crafting crunch! See the link up below for all the great gifts made so far! handmade Christmas blog hop 2crochethooks

Mary, blogger at The Boondocks Blog, made a lovely gift using the words from a song and a simple picture frame. You can see her creation HERE. I loved the idea but had already made one gift with music and wasn’t sure what type of music anyone else likes. So then I thought of doing a poem but ended up getting distracted (ha!) and pushed the idea to the side. Then my oldest sister called with some life changing news (for her) and Mary’s gift popped back in my head! Part of the convo with her ended with her taking a week off work to go “find her happy self”, I said “oh that little pony tail girl with the freckles that giggles all the time?” and she said yes.

2crochethooks gift guide

Hi all, Kristina here. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention homemade cards in the gift guide. A homemade card can go with a gift or even by itself. Your creativity is your limit with these. If you have a machine like a cricut the job is even easier.

I like to add embellishments to the card as well and washi tape is one quick and easy way to do that. One of the washi tapes I like to use is here.

Dresser to Bench Upcycle DIY

July 1, 2016By 1 Comment

¬†Hi all! Kristina here. When we moved my new bedroom was slightly smaller than my old bedroom leaving me without enough room for my dresser. I’ve had my dresser for as long as I can remember, from youth, and mom had even repainted it for me after I got married. As such I wanted very much to keep it.Dresser refurb w 2 crochet hooks

I decided to spruce it up and turn it into a bench for our new front porch!
