Crochet Shop

I am temporarily deactivating my crochet shop on Etsy. We are making a huge move from one state to another and in the process I have had to pack away most of my beloved yarn. (I'll miss being able to stand there and look at it because it's so pretty lol) This is not permanent, I will reopen when we are settled in our new place.

Update on New Project

I think I have this to the point where all I have to do is add the daily journals :)
This is what I ended up with. Just to let you know I have limited supplies because we are in the middle of a move from state to state so all I have is what I could fit in my craftsman tote (which I love).

And a photo of my goody bag lol I don't think I could fit one more thing in it!

New Project and Freebie!

I have been working on a new template type project these last few days. I am hoping to make one for each month but would like to have a little feed back on this first. Here was my thinking, I saw a few calendar type journals online, where they decorated the paper and then filled in the days of the month with a short journal spot. So I put together a template for August. These are a full page size so let me know if you would like them smaller.

How this works is, you print out all 5 pages of the pdf I recommend using card stock. Cut out all of the days of the month and the days of the week, decorate them anyway you like. Then use the background papers to glue them down any way you would like. There is no right or wrong way, this is where your own creativity comes into play. I have started inking the edges of mine and will probably use some stamps and maybe stickers (I haven't decided yet :) ). I want to go ahead and put this up instead of waiting until I have mine complete so that you can use yours for August. If it works well I will try to get Septembers up soon. If you like this project and complete it I would love to see a picture! You can send those to please add august project to the subject line if you share yours.
