#ThrowBackThursday

Once upon a time, a girl with a crochet hook and a dream started a business.  Then the internet came along and that business jumped online.

I was doing some decluttering on my computer and I came across some old pictures from the beginning of my online journey.  I found one of my original logos, and a couple original product pictures.  How sad those product pictures are!  Hahaha!

I started with a blog over on the Blogger platform, and then started selling on Ebay.  That is back when Paypal was just becoming popular and actually took checks for orders.  I didn’t get started on Etsy until around 2010.

Hooks

FINALLY getting some dry weather.  I’m getting outside to tackle yard work that has been neglected because of all the rain. Can’t sell the house with an ugly yard, right? Plus I just love playing in the dirt gardening.  What are you up to today?  Let me know!

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!

What’s your plan?

planning

What are your plans for this week? Personal?  Business?

I am NOT a good planner.  Things of often work out, but it’s chaotic and I end up stressed and crazy.  I’m working on it though.

We are not rushed with this move so I am taking the time here at the beginning to try and plan things out.  One of my goals is to color code all the moving boxes and even label what is in the box so we can locate things once we start unpacking.  Here’s hoping that it’s better than dumping everything into boxes and trying to remember what goes where.  If you have any moving tips, I’m all ears.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!

Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day weekend to all who are celebrating!  Wishing my mom a Happy Mother’s Day in heaven.  This is the last picture I took of her celebrating her last birthday.  It’s been ten years since she left us and she is missed.

Mom

I will be enjoying Mother’s Day with my handsome baby boy.

Living among the Amish we get to enjoy all their spring farm babies too!

What’s your favorite memory of your mom, or being a mom?  My mom was one of my creative influences… it’s her passion for crochet that got mine started.

Until next time, stay inspired and be crafty!
