Bunny Coasters

Spring is finally in the air! Hopefully this warmer weather is here to stay. The sunny days and hearing the birds chirping in the morning has been getting me in the mood for Easter. My kids think my love for decorating is silly, but don't you worry. When they're grown with their own houses to decorate, I will be sure to remind them of how they laughed at me.

Not only do I love to decorate, but I love to make homemade decorations. Browsing through spring and Easter stuff on Pinterest, I came up with the idea to make bunny coasters. You should also know I love coasters. Some might say that love borders on obsession. We just ignore those people 😉

I think these coasters ended up just adorable! So the least I can do is share them with other bunny and coaster addicts like me.

Mermaid Tail Cup Cozy

Everywhere I turn in the crochet world lately, I see mermaid tail blankets. They are just the neatest thing and definitely on my to-make list, but I just finished one big project for myself and am almost done with another. I certainly have the yarn for a mermaid tail blanket, but I need a break from the big. So I came up with a mermaid tail cup cozy!

S'mores Galore

There's no such this as too many s'mores, right? At least that's how it is in our house. As soon as there's even a mention of having a fire, someone is off to the store to get chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers. But sometimes, roasting marshmallows over the fire just isn't appropriate. Like at 8 in the morning. That's when my son's love of cooking really comes in handy. And when he comes up with a recipe that is nothing short of amazing, I just have to share. Introducing S'mores Oatmeal.

Marshmallow Easter Bunnies

Come Easter, Peeps are like gold in our house. The only reason they last more than a day here is because some of us prefer to eat them stale. But even then, it doesn't take more than a day or so for those marshmallow beauties to get to that state. I think I finally came up with a solution to make our marshmallow bunnies last more than a few days. Make them out of yarn!!! Plus, yarn has a lot less calories than Peeps. Although I don't suggest trying to eat the yarn over the actual food ;-)




I couldn't find a pattern for these bunny cuties that I liked so I decided to try to make up my own. Now that I think I've worked out all the kinks, they are working up pretty quick and I figured why not share so my fellow hookers can decorate their own houses and Easter baskets!

Pom Pom Monster Beanie

If you caught my post last week about making a basic beanie, you know that I love making hats. Whether it's to sell in my shop or for my kids to wear, that basic beanie pattern is what I use to make any hat.

I have a lot of friends with kids younger than mine. Sometimes being around those little ones reminds me that toddlers can be little monsters. Don't get me wrong, I love kids. I have my own and I worked with children for many, many years, but if you've been through that toddler stage, than I think you can see what I'm saying. Those little ones inspired me to make little monster hats for the little monsters.
