It almost SPRING!!!!

I am so excited because Spring is almost here! 

Spring is truly my favorite season.  I absolutely love that it is the beginning of new life. I can't wait to see the trees budding and the flowers blooming and the sun warming everything up.  

Here is a quote that I really like.

“It's spring fever. That is what the name of it is. And when you've got it, you want—oh, you don't quite know what it is you do want, but it just fairly makes your heart ache, you want it so!” 
― Mark Twain

If anyone loves to welcome in the season with some great activities, here is a nice link to Pinterest. I'm going to try to do some of these with the grands. ;)


Well, I have made a few more things for some friends and have added them to my Etsy page for anyone that would like to check it out.  Please share it with friends and family. 


I made this adorably cute little crown for may friend from work.  She just had a beautiful little baby girl.  I will hopefully be able to post pictures of her soon.  Congratulations to Dalilah and her beautiful family. 

This colorful party hat was also made for a friend from work.  Her little niece is having a first birthday and she asked if I could make her this cute topper.    I can't wait to see pictures. <3

The candy buddies are going to be used as center pieces and gifts for the guests.  I think these guys are so cute.  I also think they need party hats too. :D

Well, this is all I have for now.  Hope to be adding more soon.  Stay tuned. But mostly thanks for stopping by. Much appreciated. 

Toodle LOOOO for now.  


And as always...

May your yarn ball NEVER run out.

My new shop.

I started my ETSY SHOP!!! 

First of all,  I want to wish my amazing grand-daughter Kacey Elena a very, very happy first birthday. 

Kacey, grandma and grandpa love you with all our heart and soul.  We wish for you love, compassion, peace and everything that you may need to make you the happiest little person in this world. May you always have joy in your life.

 Unfortunately, she was a bit under the weather, but she was still gorgeous. Just look at these pictures. 

Okay NOW!!!!!

I am super excited to announce that I have re-opened my Etsy shop, "Simply Done Crochet", and plan to really try my best to create and share my creations with anyone that may need one for their little ones or maybe for their photography business.  
Here's the link.  Check it out.

In keeping with the season, here is the newest hat that I made; An Irish Bowler for an adorable cute little baby.  Can you imagine this cute little hat on top of the cutest little nakie newborn head, and that huge tie just snuggled under a precious little chin? 

These are a few of the things that I have made and sold recently.  

Lavender and yellow receiving blanket.

Newborn lavender and cream headband with matching leg warmers.

Newborn purple and teal headband with matching leg warmers.

3" owls for a baby shower.  They are appliques, but were used as party favors and hung from centerpieces.
These owls were inspired by:

This little cookie eating monster right here,
was my first sale on Etsy. 

These camera lens buddies are pretty simple to make.  If you can crochet, you can pretty much come up with anything you like.  Here is a link to a basic buddy pattern. This girl has really simple step by step instructions with pictures.  She's awesome!!!


My grandson just outgrew his little hats, so of course I had to make him a new one.  So I made him this adorable aviator hat.  

Pattern was created by: Check out her Etsy shop.  She has gorgeous things there

 I also made this petite headband, made for a toddler.  I wanted it for Luna, but she won't have it.  She doesn't like things on her head, unless it's a hat for outside. It's too bad because, it looks adorable.

 Interested? Give me a ring-a-ding. 
and by that I mean message me on Facebook
or email me at:

Headband with interchangeable flowers.  Just connect to the button. 

Please check out this shop.  It's where I got the idea for this headband/warmer.

(The flowers are a message for spring to hurry the heck up. ;) )

 Okay, so here's my latest experiment.  I decided that since I was concentrating on newborn props for photos and such, I should maybe add some tutus to my collection.  They seem pretty easy to make. Well, I tried it out, and here is my first attempt at a tutu.  The picture really doesn't do it justice.  It is adorable in person. 

  I will definitely be making me some tutus. Wish me luck!!


And with this I bid you Adieu. (for now)

Peace and Love Always!!




And as always.......
May Your Yarn Ball Never Run Out.
