The Ripl Effect


With looking for new marketing tools for blogging and Etsy, I love trying to things. One day on Facebook, I came across this cool video app named Ripl. Add photos and make a video doesn’t get any better then that. Check out some new scrunchies that have been placed on my Etsy shop.

Square Of The Week, Bohemian For A Blanket


Inspired by PBS’S CREATE CHANNEL, Knit And Crochet Now at the end of the show, square of the week.  Each week Brett Bara would demonstrate a new square of the week for a square sample blanket.  This bohemian blanket with my version of a granny square stitch will be for my bed soon.  With bohemian making a big comeback and mom painting my bedroom red, I wanted to transform my bedroom into a tropical bohemian bedroom oasis.  This square represents some of the great colors that are in bohemian style.  Granny square has an open stitch that allows you to not feel super warm, but warm enough to take the cold edge off. 

I realized when making blankets for laps and beds, it’s easier to start off with a small square and turning that small square into something big.  I also realized with squares you can sew them together as well.  I’m not the greatest sewer, but I’m learning as I go.  See this blanket come alive this summer.
