I've been working on that elusive stay-at-home/work-at-home balance. It's so easy for me to get tunnel vision on one task or activity and lose sight of the bigger picture. I've discovered I'll feel most accomplished if I set my three Most Important Tasks for the day to each pull from one category of need -- Home/Family, Self, and Blog. In the home/family category the easiest task to pull is the Day of the Week Clean.

When I set out to create summer inspired crochet planters, two things popped in my head: ridges and bright colors. It wasn't until after I purchased the yarn and plopped it in my basket that I was reminded of rainbow sherbet. Then, after I set the finished planter down and stepped back, I realized the horizontal ridges are reminiscent of that classic childhood craft, yarn wrapped cans. I love these! What a joyful combination of memories these bring back! I'm so happy they greet me every time I walk up to my kitchen sink. Bring some joy to your plants with a Summer Sherbet Crochet Planter Cover of your own!

I recently had the privilege to review the Craftsy class Custom Bedding: Decorative Shams & Bolsters with Jann Newton. I was so hopeful I would get new bedding for me. The class is fabulous, but The Peanut got the new bedding!
