12 Days of Patterns Giveaway

12 Days of Patterns 2017

Hello!

It’s that time of year where I love to spoil my followers.

Do you follow me on Facebook? You might want to.

Each day, starting tomorrow Monday 12/11 – Friday 12/22, you will receive a coupon code that will give you a FREE pattern. I might even give another FREE pattern if you follow me over on Instagram.

It can be anything from a dishcloth pattern to a blanket pattern to a sockpattern to a hat pattern to a scarf pattern. Who knows what I feel like giving that day!

I know Christmas is coming fast, but these projects will be fast to knit and fun. The perfect gift for anyone on your list.

I have so many fun things planned this next year. I’m jumping in with both feet. Be watching for things like guest bloggers, interviews will begin again *happy dance*, podcasters who will be talking about the patterns I gift them and coupon codes for their viewers, challenges for you and me, and LOTS more.

Inspiring a Creative Life.

It will be a jam packed year.

So, as I always say,

Knit On!

~Deb

Inspiring YOUR Creative Side

Hello February 2

First off, Happy February.

Ok, I’m a day late, but I’ve been snowed in with nothing but a warm fire, a hot cup of coffee and my knitting/micron pens/colored pencils and a sewing machine. I’m sure you understand.

So, here’s what I’m thinking. Inspiring A Creative Life is the theme to this blog. Why not, for the month of February, have a daily or every other day challenge. However you want to work it. I know, this will be for my own good as well as yours. It will keep us from being challenged with “what do I do now”. Yes, I have work stuff I could do, but this will be more fun, as well as, continue to feed OUR creative side.

I will provide a list below for the month of February. Yes, today counts.  You can choose to check off all 20 or pick the ones that speak to you. You probably noticed I didn’t do one for each day of the month.

That’s unrealistic. We all have busy lives, yet if you’re following along here on the blog, it’s because Creativity IS in your vocabulary.

Either way, you will be inspiring YOUR creative side. I’d love to see pics–which can be posted on Instagram by using #inspiringyourcreativeside OR here if you’re not an insta kind of girl or guy. Your comments below will be fun to read as well.

I want to be inspired by YOU!

THIS is what inspire me to be me. What inspires You?

Keep in mind, we all interpret differently, so this may be your own idea of what each is. Your style is what’s important here.  This can be photography, drawing, knitting, crochet. It can be sewing or a coloring page. Maybe you doodle or create beautiful hand lettering. Whatever your interpretation is, is what makes it YOURs.

Here Goes…Let’s have funcreativity

Magazine Review: DIY Holiday 2014

Who doesn’t love a magazine, a craft DIY magazine at that!

Me too!

I love to sit in Barnes and Noble and browse through the 100’s of craft magazines, only to find half of them go home with me. I’m sure you will truly enjoy the this Holiday Issue.

Without giving too much away, it’s seriously packed, page after page, with projects. A sewn bib, rattle and burp baby set, Holiday Bauble Coaster Set, a cute crochet light bulb garland.

Oh, I can’t forget to mention the Knitted Garter Mug Cozies, or the Go-Retro Wool Quilt perfect for your wall.

Oh my gosh, the Fast and Fun Innovative Trivets, yes, quilted.

See? Have I convinced you yet?
