baby earflap hat


happy 2015 everyone! here's to another wonderful year! during the fall/winter season, i picked up knitting again and made an earflap cap which was one of the patterns from the knitting book "all you knit is love" by susie haumann. the yarn choice is madelinetosh sock and the colorway is sugar plum. i love the simplicity of this hat in stockinette stitch and the little details make it an adorable baby hat. i hope to knit/make more things in 2015. 

almond thumbprint jam cookies


thumbprint cookies is one of my favorite cookies to make and not only do they look cute but they are delicious too. filling in the indentation of these thumbprints with jams is the best part. cookies are based from this recipe.  xxx happy baking xxx

another great craft project to do and the radish sewing pattern is available in  Made by Hand: by Lena Corwin. there are a few other patterns in this book i would like to make when i have the chance or time.

tiny knitted rabbit

featured as a prop for my baby congrats card (see post below). i gave this knitted rabbit a little life by dressing her up which reminded me of playing dress-up to paper-doll as a little girl. i used felt to make her top. you can find the free pattern here.

2014 calendar


a little late on sharing this diy calendar i made for twenty fourteen. it's a simple black and white calendar i designed/created using heavy cardboards, black construction papers, free printable 2014 calendar, a few hole-punches/closures, and applied to it my own penmanship of the twenty fourteen letterings in ribbon style. happy april/spring!
