My Love for Radiohead.

My love for Radiohead is pretty insane. I can't ever get enough. Please enjoy the music.




I got a little consumed with being on Facebook too much. I decided to stop using it as my main way of socializing. I need to focus on my blog and other projects like crocheting. I've been trying to finish my daughter's blanket for a while and I'm currently working on that. I also have some trips I need to plan and work that needs to be done. Fellow bloggers, you'll be hearing from me a lot more. :)

Decisions, decisions.

My daughter is turning 3 in April. She's growing up too fast! She just got a big girl bed the other day and is doing fantastic! Last year, I started planning her birthday party way too late, so I've decided to start planning now. I found some fantastic invitations here.
I need help from you guys on the theme I should pick. Here are the options:

1. Bumble Bee Party.


2. Circus Party.



3. Hot Air Balloon Party.


4. Kite Flying Party.


I'm having a hard time deciding what theme I want to do. Help!! What do you think?

Crochet Heart Headband D.I.Y.

Today, I'm going to show you how to make your own adorable crochet heart headband. Just in time for Valentine's Day. If you're a fast crocheter, it will only take about ten minutes to do.


Yarn. I'm using Vanna's Choice Yarn in Dusty Purple.

Size H/8-5.00MM Crochet Hook.

//Step One//
Making the heart.

The pattern is a LITTLE confusing. Just make sure you follow STEP by STEP!!
Ch 6 and join with sl st

Rnd 1: Working in ring: sc, hdc, dc, 2tr, 2dc, 3hdc, sc, dc, sc, 3hdc, 2dc, 2tr, dc, hdc, sc.
Join with sl st to first sc.

Rnd 2: ch1, sc in same st, 2hdc in next st, 2 dc in next st, 2 tr in next 2 st, dc in next 2 sts, 2hdc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, dc in next st, sc in next 2 sts, hdc in next st, 2 hdc in next st, dc in next 2 sts, 2tr in next 2st, 2 dc in next st, 2 hdc in next st, sc. sl st to join

If you wanted, you could stop here and grab an alligator clip and attached the clip to the back of the heart and clip it in your hair. I think I'm going to make a lot of these for my daughter. :)

//Step Two//
Making the headband.

The headband is just a long chain. I chained until it fit snug around my head. When you finish off the chain, leave a little extra string so you can tie it. *Remember, yarn stretches so don't make it too loose.*

//Step Three//
Joining the heart and the headband.

Place the headband chain around your head and pick a spot where you want it to go. Grab the spot with your fingers and put your hook through to mark it. With the back of the heart facing you, sc the chain to the back of the heart. It doesn't have to look perfect. No one will see that side.

Annnnnd you're DONE! I hope you enjoyed this week's D.I.Y!!

Happy crocheting!!!

Craft Tip.

If you work with yarn a lot, you probably wind your yarn into yarn balls to keep from knotting up later on. Say you already have your yarn ball and you start crocheting and your yarn ball is going every which way around you, either on the floor getting dirty or next to you driving your cat crazy. Well, I solved this problem.

Put it in a bowl!!

I'm sure I'm not the only one that has thought of this, but it works great. Try it!!

Also, I'm sad to say that I probably won't have the D.I.Y done in time today, so I'm hoping I'll have time to post it tomorrow!! Get your crochet hooks ready!
