Going Headband Crazy! - Link to Free Pattern!

Hey there hookers!

I hope everyone is enjoying their spring! I know I am. I've been spending lots of time outside enjoying the weather, and even taking some trips to the beach!

I've also been enjoying making a few spring projects!
This one is just the beginning.

This headband is called the Thai Garden Headband (click on the name for the pattern).
 I spotted this pattern on Pinterest one day, and knew instantly that I had to try it. It looked simple and just perfect for the spring time!

It only took me about an hour to work up, and the flowers were fairly quick to make also. It's the perfect project to make if you need a quick gift, or want to make out like a bandit at craft fairs this season! 

I used Loops & Threads - Woolike Simili-Laine super fine yarn. This is my first time working with such lightweight yarn, but I liked it! I can't wait to make some more things with it for the spring and summer.

What other things do you think would be good to make with this yarn?

Spring Is Here! Photography Adventures

Believe it or not, even with all the snow around, spring has arrived! I'm anxious for the nicer weather, especially because of all the snow we've gotten this year. Needless to say... I am OVER IT! 

One of my favorite things to do in the spring is photography. I love taking pictures and finding beauty in ordinary life. I find old, vintage, and weird things most attractive. I enjoy looking at things from different vantage points as well; high up, down below, super close, or really far away. I like to make things as interesting as possible when taking photographs.

I have recently moved to a new area, and luckily am within walking distance of a lot of local businesses, as well as the beach! I've never lived this close to the ocean before, and I've been anxious to get a look and take some pictures! 

I used Picasa to edit these pictures. They were all taken with my iPhone, since my camera is still back in my old town. Still, I love the way these came out, and it was so nice to sit and relax at the beach for a while!

Lately I've been going through a rough patch, and had taken a break from blogging for a few months so that I can focus on myself and get back to where I needed to be mentally. Now that I'm feeling better, I'm more excited than ever to bring you guys some great crochet patterns, and maybe some other things too! This is the happiest I've ever been, and I'm really enjoying my new life.
