Crochet Kitty Blanket

I created a little blanket for our kitty, Dani Rojas. The yarn was purchased at The Dollar Tree (gotta love that).



I used a simple Granny Square pattern (my favorite). This is the kind of pattern I can watch TV and crochet at the same time. 

Thanks for stopping by. 
Hugs!
Have a blessed day!

T-Shirt Fun

 I love it when Tom & I make t-shirts. I miss our t-shirt shop (Southern way of saying Store). Even though we no longer have the shop, we still make shirts for ourselves now and then. Here's one we made last weekend. I love it.



I picked a font I liked and typed it in Cricut Design Space then cut it out. Tom is the expert on centering and heat pressing them. We used to have the professional equipment at the shop, but sold all of that when we closed it up. Now we use the Cricut to cut and the Cricut Heat Press. We still have our professional die cutter, but for just a simple t-shirt, the Cricut works just as good.

I have some more t-shirts to share with you we've make lately. I'll try to get some photos of them and post later this week.

And tomorrow I have a crochet kitty blanket I made for Dani Rojas to show you. Hope you'll visit again then.

Hugs!
Have a blessed day,
:) Janis

Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday!!


I was going to make a year in review bullet list, but decided that would be way too boring for you. LOL I am proud to say, since our family went whole foods plant based (with a cheat day now and then) I have lost over 50 pounds in the last couple of years. Really close to 60 gone, but just a few pounds more to go for that. I should have already reached it last month, but our cheat days have been more frequent. Oopsie.

Here's a pocket letter based on things starting with the Letter F.
I had a really hard time getting this going with ideas, but I'm very happy with how it turned out! If you enjoy swapping pocket letters (and live in the USA), let me know! Maybe we can swap some time.


  • Flowers
  • Friends
  • Furry Friends
  • Fountain
  • Fall Tree
  • Fence
  • Fox
All cuts from Cricut
stickers
dew drops / pebbles
various stamped sentiments

All About Me Pocket Letter Swap

Hello my crafty friends!

Today I have a pocket letter themed, 
"All About Me" created for a swap.


Here are my 9 pocket themes in the All About Me pocket letter:
1) Avid Reader
2) Love to go camping with the entire family
3) Riding my bicycle is one of my favorite things to do. It's so relaxing!

4) I use my Cricut and other die cutting machines with my crafting hobby
5) I'm a Grandma to 5 boys!!
6) We have a little baby kitty that's black with white feet named Dani Rojas

7) I enjoy playing the piano
8) We love sitting on the front porch, especially during heavy rainstorms
9) I'm an avid scrapbooker

Each pocket has my favorite colors as the solid backgrounds which is purple and turquoise.

All images print 'n' cut with Cricut
lots of pattern paper, buttons, gems, pearls, sequins, and die cuts from punches

July 4th Pocket Letter

Hello my crafty friends!


July 4th (Red, White & Blue) Pocket Letter
(created for a swap)
Carta Bella pattern papers
Cricut used for all die cuts and print n cuts
Flowers, stickers, buttons, twine, sequins, sentiments

I'm really enjoying creating more Pocket Letters again. I haven't done these in a while. The Facebook groups for swapping Pocket Letters are so fun and encouraging! If you are in one, leave a comment below so I can check out the group.

Again, since I was creating one for a swap,  I went ahead and created 2 alike so that I can have one for reference or to use in the need of a quick pre-made pocket letter for another swap.
