Coming Back to Life

Its been a REALLY long time. Almost a year! A lot has happened in that time.

Broke up with my boyfriend of 6 years. Lost Custody of our son. Got a new boyfriend (friends for 18 of my 28 years). Fell in love with two little step daughters, and am pregnant with my own daughter. Had a house fire this year and lost most everything. Starting over has been difficult, but I’m getting there.

This pregnancy has been very rough. I was very sick for most of it. I was slowly getting better before the fire hit us in Jan. Its been a spiral on my health, but I am ok now and ready to try again at having a designer life. I just started to crochet again after a year absence, and I’m excited to make a new CAL to get involved in.

Ill have some information on that soon. I was asked to do a CAL based on Winnie the Pooh… we will see if i can get that done and make it public 🙂

Time to Let Go – Wow CAL

Hi everyone. Its with some sadness I want to say that I’m not able to keep up with the WoW CAL. Work is so busy I’m posting late, and I broke up with my long term boyfriend recently. Ive had a lot going on, and I apologize for not keeping with with everyone who wanted to do this CAL so badly!

What happens now is I will just link to you all the graphs that I have done so you can finish from here on out at your own pace. Theres a bunch I didn’t get a chance to finish but at least you have enough options to finish your blankets!

I’m still aiming to do the mythology CAL, but ill be releasing all of those at once. My goal is to finish the Zodiac portion of that one today, and have them uploaded for you guys who have purchased.

Here is the list of all the squares of the WoW CAL, feel free to share this post so everyone can do any squares they like!

The Higher Powers – WoW CAL Week 7

Hey All! This week came out late and I’m so sorry! If you were connected to our Facebook group, you may have seen that I was working super late (I was up at 6, didn’t lay down till 2am) and I had errands this morning.

This week will be just like week 6. This post will be just a post about this weeks stuff but there are links below to the first post and the post that has all the colors and concepts!

You can find the schedule and updated color list for each week here: Break Week 2: WoW CAL

If you are just joining us, you may want a little more information. Check out our first post (link below) for more information of how our CAL will work, as long as some tips and tricks!

Our seventh week! this week I wanted to highlight some stuff for those who like the lore! Im not a huge lore person, and i loved the gaming aspect more then the background stories. The lore that i did like, had to do with some of our more magical NPCs. So here are a few of the highly respected characters 🙂

I made 3 squares this week. All 3 will include their recommended colors within the PDF, and none have written! There may be updates with written in the future, and There may be errors in the written, so please take caution! Let me know asap if you find any errors and ill fix them!
(remember, written instructions are not guaranteed every week)

You can make any of these you wish, and change any colors you see fit. If you are making this for a gift and not sure which to choose, the testers recommend making the Ysera 🙂

CenariusCenarius: Cenarius is the Lord of the Forest and Essentially a god of the druids. Hes considered a demi god. There are quests that mention him from the night elf areas, but he is the leader of the Cenarion Circle which was a huge group in the burning crusade expansion I believe. He has a deep connection to Ysera as she raised him. He was a part of much history, and now is a spirit within the Emerald Dream (if I have all those correct!)

Click The Name for the Graph (No Written) : Cenarius

The Emerald DreamThe Emerald Dream: I had a quick change of my mind. I decided to represent the Emerald Dream itself here, because I’m so fascinated with the Emerald Dream and all that lore behind it. I also like adding a graph here and there that is of a place, maybe to match up with a few of the other places we have represented in previous weeks. I also made this graph simple, since the other two are kind of a lot and I know people are probably getting a little tired of the CAL 🙂

Click The Name for the Graph (No Written) : The Emerald Dream

Yseraysera: Ysera is a dragon aspect, and one of my personal favorite characters. She resides within the emerald dream and during gameplay she is referenced a lot. Even tho she is a dragon there are a few appearances where she appears in night elf form. I chose to represent her that way since her dragon form is very similar to her sister dragons and I wanted her to be more represented as a goddess over a dragon.

Yarn Storage: How To Get Oranized 101

Hey Crafters! Today I wanted to branch out and give you all some tips and tricks about storing yarn. I’m sure we’ve all been there! That moment where you come home and your significant other goes “Seriously? Where do you think you will shove that?” Maybe some of you have encountered the famous eye roll when you bring home one or two skeins of yarn. No matter what the situation, everyone wants one of those GORGEOUS yarn storage sets ups where the whole room is filled wall to wall with yarn! Maybe a nice table, comfy couch, maybe a rocking chair…., am I right?

Well, to be realistic, not everyone has that luxury. I am so jealous of the ones who do, ill tell you that! If you don’t have this amazing room (though I wish everyone did) I will give you some information that may help get your stash under control!

I want say that no matter what size stash you have, what yarns you use, how much space you have to store your things, how many projects you have going, or any other factors, there is a storage solution for you. I’m here to give you some ideas. They wont work for everyone, but it may give you some ideas to try out.

First, I want to give you an idea of my stash and how much I have to organize. I own every color of red heart super saver both in solids and in the multis, with about 2-4 skeins of every color. I also have 20-30 skeins from about 8 different yarns. That collection is around 400-450 skeins of yarn. Now, don’t be jealous of that yarn stash because it really can be a hassle to get through and keep organized. This is also why we are here! I want you to know that I know what I’m talking about! That doesn’t mean I know every idea, but I’m a girl on a budget! So I know what I have access to 🙂

Also, Walmart is my best friend and the only place to shop where I live, so I will be offering you mostly links from Walmart. Other places may have the same items cheaper depending on where you live, what is local in your area, shipping, etc.

Storage Solution 1: Bags!
BAGS! I love bags! It’s so easy to just pick up a bag and rush out of the house. I have a set of hooks, scissors, a ruler, highlighter, notepad, and pens in each. Cheap stuff from the dollar store or Walmart. Below is a pic of two of my favorite bags! (Note: I am receiving no compensation, just helping designers I consider friends)

The grey one has deer and arrows! its a HUGE bag! For an idea, I can keep 5 new skeins of super saver in it before it starts getting bulky. Has pockets on the side and outside! I added a key ring at the loop to make the closure a little longer, but it is a strap over and clasp closure. She can also add zippers if you prefer! Big enough for afghan projects and better yet: SUPER Affordable!

Check out a few of these other bags!

These bags were made by AudacitybyAngelic and she typically charges 30$ per bag and 3$ shipping. Tell her Krystlelyn Sent ya and I’m sure she will work on your order promptly if you request something custom made like we did!
Check her Etsy by clicking the link here: AudacitybyAngelic
You can email her at: audacitybyangelic@Yahoo.com
You can also Facebook her here: Angelic Facebook

My moose bag is the most sturdy and secure bag I have ever owned! It has a TON of pockets inside and out, and is perfect for smaller projects like hats, scarfs, etc. I can hold probably 3 super saver skeins in there with a project. I usually use this bag for baby blankets!
You can check out her shop which is FULL of amazing things like wallets, zipper pouches, aprons and bags below!
Check her Etsy by clicking the link here: MainelyStitches

There are a ton of other designers out there so don’t be afraid to let me know if you have had a brilliant experience with someone!

Storage Solution 2: Project Totes!
If anyone is like me, you have multiple projects going at one time. Some don’t, and I admire you for that! For those though who are just like me, it can be a hassle trying to stack your bags out of the way, or try to pull out projects you want to work on who have made their way to the bottom of the pile.

I have multiple solutions for this.

Solution 2A: Stacking Baskets
I am using Maintays Utility Stacking Baskets (Walmart Link)
12941224_882896288476123_585373882_oThey are cheap! 3.97 Each. Sturdy, Reliable, and stacking for more storage abilities. I have 5, and you can see how I am using 4 of them now! Each item in there is a blanket with at least 5 skeins of red heart in there. The bottom one even has jumbos! I found them in the plastic tub section of my store, but other stores may have them in different locations. There are also similar baskets that are a little bigger, a few dollars more, but come in different color variations! They are also an item bought only in store. Sorry 😦

Solution 2B: Utility Bag
I have a bag I bought from Walmart, in store, for I believe 9.97. I came across it in the laundry basket section, and I cant find the link for it on the Walmart website but they come in black, zebra, and I believe black and white polka-dot. They are pretty big and I can easily fit two or three large blanket projects in it! Its called “utility tote” if I remember correctly. Has three pockets in the front which hold hooks perfectly. Folds up and everything!

Storage Solution 3: Under the bed!
This may not apply for everyone but I wanted to show you some bags I actually used to move with recently for my yarn! They are awesome, and skeins can fit straight up! These bags in particular are kind of tall for under the bed but there are some very similar that are made for under the bed. Theres also a few ways to do this… one more expensive then the other in my opinion.

Solution A: Space Bags
There are a LOT of different sizes for space bags. They repel water, dust, and dander. You can even put a dryer sheet in there and it will keep the yarn fresh! Don’t worry about the yarn shrinking up… it comes back after it sits out of the bag for a few mins!
Check out the Product by clicking the link here:  Space Bags13170602_903787293053689_1128113156_o

Solution B: Canvas Zipper Bags
I personally love these. They stack well, and they are available in so many sizes! There are TONS to choose from in many brands at your local Walmart! I usually see them either in the laundry section where the laundry baskets are, or next to the space bags in that vicinity.

Storage Solution 4: Cube Organizers!
12922148_882896285142790_618573240_oThis is my second favorite piece of furniture in my house! I LOVE my cube organizers! Each Cube can hold 9 skeins of red heart super saver yarn, or up to 16 if its the multis! I love that I can have the skeins in a cube or put them just on the shelf so I can look at them all the time, and I love how easy they are to put together. They are so sturdy! I have currently a 6 and a 9 cube together, and I am saving up for another 9 cube organizer. There are a lot of super expensive ones online, even 16 cubes in one unit. I Personally purchase Walmart brand again, because its cheap but the quality for this item doesn’t falter for the price. Also if you watch, you can often find the white one on sale for 23$ online! The canvas cubes are around 4-5$ each in store. I don’t order these online, so I cant give you a link for the correct ones. The inside cubbies are 10.5×10.5 if that helps!

12903814_882896261809459_12758323_oStorage Solution 5: Wire Racks!
There is a few complications with wire racks. They are not solid on all sides so yarn labels can get snagged… and also yarn would be very exposed to elements such as water, dust, etc. Honestly, I love my yarn and I love seeing it, so the wire racks are great for me! I have them on top of one of my cube organizers right now. They are sturdier then they look and they hold a LOT of yarn in each! I can hold 16 regular size red heart super saver skeins in there plus 4 stacked behind them. They are huge, and do fit with the large canvas cube bags too. They can be put together in any way you want them to, and they can even hold the clips you may use as bobbins down the sides! (like in my pic). They are a hair expensive but I like how easy they are to break down for moving, or no longer needing them! They come in a few different sizes and styles. They are also often on sale at other places like Target for cheaper. Shop around for these!

Additional ideas:
There are TONS of ways to still do nice yarn organization on the cheap.

  1. Garage sales where you may find cheap china cabinets or shelving,
  2. Use tubs to store yarn (helps if they are clear tubs!)
  3. Sterilite Plastic Drawers (there are a lot of different sizes of these!)
  4. Trash bags stacked in a closet with notes on them (using a sharpie)
  5. Regular boxes with sticker notes as to what is inside
  6. Closet organizers (even though these are more expensive usually)
  7. Shoe organizer bags
  8. Hanging Closet Organizers (the canvas material)
  9. Estate Sales where they often sell furniture
  10. Thrift stores where they sell furniture (also may find yarn!)
  11. Fancy shelving on the walls, in a diagonal diamond format (expensive!)

There is no right or wrong way to store yarn! These are just some ideas I had offhand and wanted to share with everyone! Any ideas I think of I will always update later!

 

To Honor Thy Comrades – Wow CAL – Week 5

Hey Again! This week will be like last week! I will link you to a post that I will keep updated with the current schedule and updated colors as well as the first post I made that gives you some of the info you may need to get started. This post will also have all past week graphs 🙂

Click the link for the info post: Soft Release: Level Up! – WoW CAL

After an easy week last week I’m sure you are ready for something harder!

Our fifth week! So exciting! This week I was a little at a loss. I didn’t want to highlight Pandaria, Cataclysm, or Warlords. Mainly, I wanted to try and capture the essence of wow. I felt the majority of the games popularity was fully established in earlier expansions. I wanted to stop focusing on the expansions and move on, but there was still a big player that people wanted to see: Sylvannes. So we have this week for honorable mentions!

I made 3 squares this week. All 3 will include their recommended colors within the PDF, and none have written! There may be updates with written in the future, and There may be errors in the written, so please take caution! Let me know asap if you find any errors and ill fix them!
(remember, written instructions are not guaranteed every week)

You can make any of these you wish, and change any colors you see fit. If you are making this for a gift and not sure which to choose, the testers recommend making the Sylvannes 🙂

SylvannesSylvannes Windrunner: The Banshee Queen is a favorite of many. I had many requests to add her in the rotation but I didn’t want to have people choose between her and Lich King. I knew that would be a rough one. So here she is, and I home to see MANY Sylvannes squares!

Mr. Bigglesworth BodyMr. Bigglesworth: You may be wonder what this one is about. If you remember wow players, he used to be a legend in WoW. Some Mr. Bigglesworth - Facetheories that if you did or didn’t kill him in Naxx, there is a chance he will drop off the boss. Such a lie. Anyway, Mr. Bigglesworth is Kel’Thuzad’s cat, and probably a symbol of his last piece of humanity. Little kitty is also a battle pet. He’s awesome. So there’s that! Hes note worthy as the most murdered cat in game. lol. I did make two copies of this one, because I wasn’t sure if people would prefer a full body or a full face. There is both! I recommend if you are doing the full body version, that you take a daring needle and embroider on the whiskers in the Aqua/Turquoise you used for the eyes.

Valithria DreamwalkerValithria Dreamwalker : Valithria Dreamwalker is a boss fight in ICC. She is a Boss from Wrath of the Lich King. I noted her, because she was a healers dream boss. She had a unique dynamic where she had to be healed a certain amount during the fight before we would proceed. Many heals loved this fight as it was a lot of fun and a chance to just let loose. I was a healer, and I just wanted to give some love to my favorite boss of the game.
