How’s that for a blog title? I have a couple thoughts and things to share today.
1. Staged pictures. I have a love/hate relationship about these pictures floating around on Instagram. If you follow me there, you have already read my thoughts. I love the way the pictures look but I hate the effort it takes to stage and take the picture. I think it’s almost lame. For example, to take this picture below, I pulled our kitchen table close to our window to get as much natural light as I could. I brewed the coffee and picked the most photo worthy mug. So lame! I must have looked insane. Now, I of course drank the coffee. I was making it anyway. Bottom line, I decided I am not ashamed of my amateur staged pictures. I won’t have the perfect white background along with other accessories. I just want to show my creations in the way that fits my personality. This picture below is pretty much that! It’s my favorite yarn, my favorite beverage, in one of my favorite mugs.
2. New hat style in the Etsy Shop! I call this one the Adult Belle Beanie. It’s so comfortable! You’re never too old to wear a pom pom either. I also added a couple more colors of scarves and hats as well.
Here are a couple other new listings
The striped hat is my absolute favorite! I made one and ended up keeping it for myself.
3. Giveaway winner! The winner for the crochet kit giveaway is Sarah L! You will be contacted for your mailing info to receive your kit. Congratulations!
That’s all for now friends. Have a great week!

Today I have the privilege of sharing a really great crochet kit from Haven for Hands. I am in love with this crochet kit. I have been wanting a new set of crochet hooks for awhile. I was actually going to ask for them for Christmas! This kit is exactly what I was looking for and more.
The kit comes with a beautiful fabric case that is very sturdy and does a great job protecting everything inside. In the kit there are 9 colorful crochet hooks, all with comfortable grips. You also get 10 stitch markers, a retractable measuring tape, and a cute little scissors to keep inside. It’s amazing!
The hooks have a very comfortable grip that helps prevent your hand from cramping up or becoming uncomfortable. Each handle specifies the hook size in US terms. The sizes are 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, and 6.0 mm. A great range to have on hand for many projects.
Inside the case is a little zipper pocket to keep the other accessories safe. I love the lace along the zipper by the way!
It folds up securely with a cute button
I am new to using these hooks and I love them. I am used to the crochet hooks with the flatter heads. I got the hang these very quickly! Again, the grips are so comfortable.
You can never have too many stitch markers!
The pouch fits perfect in my craft basket. I love how I can have everything in one place.
Overall I love the crochet kit! I would recommend this to any crocheter out there. This is also a great gift idea if you know someone who crochets. It’s never too early to think about Christmas!
