Crochet: One of the Many Ways to a Happier Life

I ran across this post this morning & just HAD to share. Some great advice here!!


Alfresco Art

Another gorgeous Spring day. Too beautiful to stay inside & so Alli & I both spent a little time arting in the great outdoors!



She’s playing with some brand new oil paints. This is a new adventure for her. She’s only used water colors & acrylics before, so she’s been excited to get at it.


Of course, my ‘art’ is in the form of crochet…but I was creating nonetheless. Making progress on the ‘Boyfriend’ blanket. Will do a ‘Ta-Dah’ post when I’m done.


Counting My Blessings:
