Confessions of a Craftaholic

Hi everyone. I’m back stateside and finally getting caught up on life after my 6 week adventure in Deutschland. For a while I thought about shutting down the page, but I realized that I do have a lot of fun writing from time to time (it’s nice to write for pleasure instead of all grants all the time!) and my blog is a good way for me to share what I love with those who may not be on my facebook or twitter. So as many of you know, I LOVE to craft. I learned how to sew when I little and have been knitting and crocheting TONS the last few years. So I’m thinking this blog might be a good way for me to keep up with my writing for fun while sharing my crafty adventures. What do you think?

So to kick things off, I’m going to be working on a Granny Christmas tree skirt. That’s right, I’m crocheting a tree skirt in August! My fellow crafters would agree that it’s never too early to start on holiday projects! It’s a pretty awesome pattern from that looks easy enough for my intermediate crochet skills. Not to mention that I’m hooked on granny squares, and it’s just simply beautiful! Anyone out there want to craft along with me? I’m planning on picking up my yarn tonight, so be on the look out for picture soon!

Here’s a new favorite song of mine that I discovered on my trip to Germany, happy almost weekend!
