Easter is just around the corner…

I’m actually not one to get super excited about holidays because it usually means I’m hosting something or going to a ton of family functions. Most holidays are linked with gifts and I am one to hand make EVERY SINGLE GIFT. Might I add… I have 3 families… 3 sisters, and two brothers. 🙂 I love them all dearly but one can feel a bit overwhelmed or a bit stressed.

But for some reason… I a SUPER excited for Easter. 🙂 After the long and busy winter, my move into my new home in the woods, and the recent season change, I feel so inspired. I feel a new energy coming over me and I’m literally exploding inside with positivity. ❤

I love spring. It’s the kind of new beginning you are excited for even though you don’t know what the beginning will be. I love the flowers, all the baby animals, everyone seeming to feel a little more in love or new couples meeting. Can you tell I am excited? Oh yeah… and more SUN!

What is your favorite season and/or holiday and why? I would have to say my favorite season is a tie between spring and fall. I don’t really have favorite holiday… maybe Halloween. 🙂  This year though? Easter… Definitely Easter.

img_1910I woke Gracey up at 6am (because we had to leave at 6:30) to see what the Easter bunny left for her and get ready to go see Matt’s grandma over in Yakima. The Easter bunny brought her the movie SHARK TALE!!!! Whoo hoo!! She was so excited!


While at Grandma’s I caught Matt playing with Gracey’s My Little Pony… hmmm… it seems like since he has turned 30, he is comfortable enough to play princess, tea party, etc. with Gracey only Gracey wasn’t playing when I caught him 🙂


…and of course… I made a hat!! Even on a holiday you can’t get yarn out of my hands.. I think I have a problem.. This hat is made with organic cotton. Super soft!

warmersThe holiday is finally over!!! (I think…) these are the last of purchased gifts from my lovely ETSY customers… 🙂 I don’t think I have ever had to work so hard in my entire life and enjoyed almost every minute of it!! Now I know that maybe I should start my handwarmers in the summer that way when winter comes next year, I will have 40 pairs of handwarmers ready incase I get that many sales again! Keep looking in my shop because I will be putting some new ones up now that I have time to make new ones 🙂

Valentine’s Day will be coming sooner than we probably would like it but when you are ready, check out my love me tenderly knitted items in my shop or get some beautiful jewelry for loved one from my jewelry shop! New items coming soon now that I have almost a month off!!

Happy Holidays!

Itsabreeze custom ordered this hat this evening. It was fun to make something new. I have been brainstorming new styles and colors for my shop and I was very pleased with how the orange and grey went together! I will be adding this design to my line soon.

The red christmas ball is made with cotton yarn that I purchased 3 years ago from Hilltop yarn in Queen Anne (Seattle). The Cream ornament is made with a cashmere looking yarn. I was very pleased with these and will be making more with different colors and embellishments.
