Crocheted Little Patterns Book

For a while know, I've been selling my patterns on various venues, such as Etsy, Craftsy, and Ravelry to name a few.
 After the move and settling down in the new place, the ides was to get back on the horse, so to speak, start creating and selling online again, because to be honest having a day job is great, but I miss being able to create on a whim! 
However, as I mentioned in my previous post, things don't always go as planned, and with limited resources, my creative muse was really suffering. 
 What could I do to still appease her? 
I decided to take the plunge and put all of my patterns in one spot by creating my first book on Amazon.

 It's with a lot of pride that I present you Crocheted Little Patterns 

Right now is in Kindle format, but I do dream one day of being able to actually print it, and maybe even stream online some focal points of my tutorials.....

Well, I'm allowed to dream, aren't I?

 If you too have a book idea and you are wondering how to do it, trust me, it is hard. Amazon offer a very detailed guide. It was easy and fun, and I plan eventually to have more.

 I hope I gave you an idea of a fun project for this summer.
Or maybe you are a pro with already books out there and would like to share: feel free.
If anything, consider my book or suggest it to a friend or family member that would like to have it. post signature

Limited editions

My last post was about 1 year and 4 months from now. 
I wished I never stopped writing on here, but alas, life does gets in the way sometimes.

It is hard to summarize over a years in one post, so I'm going to limit the 2 most important events:
1) I got a full time job as a Biology teacher (yes, I'm actually using my degree!)
2) I bought a house

This post is more related to point #2.
As we were moving out of the old place and loading things in the cars to bring them here, somebody decided to "lift" some boxes from the lawn.....I kid you not!

One of the boxes being fulls of crochet thread and cotton than I use to crochet and create things for my shop.
Sad I know, also because it took me years to accumulate that much and select specific colors....
I'm not sure that I will be ever able to replace everything if anything.

That said, I'm trying to see the good in every situation and the way I see it is that the crocheted little things that I was able before the loss, are now limited editions as I don't have the tools, materials, nor time to make more.

With this in mind, I created a Limited Editions section in my shop with those discontinued pieces at very discounted prices. I hope you will take advantage of the possibility to buy something unique as I cannot reproduce any of these pieces anymore.

Do you have any Limited Editions that you'd like to share?

Almost a year

I haven't been writing from almost a year and I missed it terribly. 
In this year a lot has happened. 

My new teaching job catapulted me to a new dimension of work and study, and more work and more study...... 

I decided I want to start writing again but with a twist. 

There are things that are happening around me that I'm not happy about. 
I want to record them, but at the same time I want to find something to smile about each day.

February 12th. The day a kid stuck her finger up her nose and then in my daughter's food. School does nothing. No apology, they were only joking. Karma, my dear.......

February 13th. The day that I bought chocolate for all my students and they showered my co-worker with gifts and completely ignored me. I forgive them and I still love everybody. They would miss me if I was to go, and I'm sure they have no idea they hurt my feelings. 

February 14th. The day my husband forgot about Valentine's day. After I bought him a very expensive shirt that he wanted from months. It's ok, I'm hiding in the bathroom eating all the Hershey kisses......shhhhh. 

Anything that made you smile?

New hair cuts

Spring cleaning in my house means of course a lot of cleaning, purging, getting rid of stuff we don't need, organize what's left and also new hair cuts. 

My daughter and I went short! 

What do you do in your Spring cleaning time?
