Wordless Wednesday Afghan in Progress

This is the current crochet project. I am hoping it will be the first item for sale in my Etsy shop. When I finish it, and get it posted on Etsy, I will let everyone know. I think it’s going to be a very nice afghan, even though it looks a little lopsided right now. […]

Winter Ickies

Everyone in my house has had a bad case of the Winter Ickies for the last three weeks. All of you Moms know how it goes. First my husband came home with it. I don’t know if one of the kids picked it up at school and brought it home, or if it hitched a […]

Applied Labels LLC Review

Have You Heard of Mabel’s Labels?

I have been using Mabel’s Labels for a while now, and I have to say I am very impressed. I use the labels on my grandkids cups. These labels stay stuck, through numerous dishwashings. I think what impressed me most was finding one of those cups floating in a greasy pot I had filled with […]
