Just a little update on my crafty endeavors (other than party printables)! The reason I started crocheting was because of crochet cuties aka amigurumi.

Time for the August Stuffie of the Month!  This month I am featuring a crocheted stuffie pattern!  Princess Aurora by Ohana Craft. Since I actually started crocheting stuffed animals before I was sewing them, I thought reviewing a crochet stuffie pattern (also know as Amigurumi) would be a great addition to my stuffie of the…

My favorite stuffed animal designer is also an amazing craft business blogger –  Abby Glassenberg of While She Naps.  She is currently running a series on her blog talking to sewing/crafting people about the Pattern that changed their life!  This got me thinking about what my inspiration was for getting all crafty and diving into the…
