Pin It And Do It In September 2015
Trish from Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity is once again hosting Pin It and Do It. Check out her introductory post and join in.
With the cooler weather coming (supposedly), it’s time around here to get ready for it. Hang on kids, winter is coming and real soon!
A couple of weeks ago, I made these crochet slippers and they were so easy I’m making another pair. The pattern is in the pin itself. I tried to hunt down the source, but I could not find a reference to the original anywhere. Not even on Ravelry.
Here’s how they turned out!
It took me about an hour per slipper. The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Stripes in Spartans. It took one skein. I have the same yarn in Hudson Bay and hope to make another pair with it soon.
Because I’m easily influenced, I bought myself a planner. Some of the people (Michelle) I follow on Twitter and Instagram are veeery into them. I’m not sure how it’s going to turn out for me, but I saw this one and had to have it.
I used to be into scrapbooking before the digital age made it too much of a hassle. (I love Shutterfly.) I have a lot of stuff I can use for decorating my planner. Still, I needed something specific to planners. Pinterent to the rescue. This blog post from Everything Etsy has a collection of links to free printable stickers. I had a printer, large white labels, and a paper cutter. Here were the results:
I also looked at this post from The Love Nerds as a guide. Some people are so organized and creative. I’m going to try. I’m hoping this will mean I forget fewer appointments!
