Hello, and welcome.
I would like to inform you that I AM MOVING.
...well, sort of. I have started a new blog, Oui Crochet, that focuses just on crochet, crochet patterns, and crochet resources. I am in the process of building it up as a one stop shop for all things crochet, and I am very excited about it. I hope you will come over and check out my progress. :)
I will be moving my patterns from this site, to my new site. My idea is to leave this site active, so that you can still access other aspects of this site. I will also leave a modified "introduction" post where each pattern is on this site, as to keep all links active and make it so that you can easily locate the pattern's new home. As an added bonus, you will also find new printable/downloadable versions of my patterns.
I apologize for any inconvenience, but I assure you, this change is a positive one. I look forward to seeing you at Oui Crochet.
Happy Crocheting!

Couscous Recipe

Are you ever falling behind in your daily activities, and in need of a quick fix for dinner?
Yeah, me too!
Couscous is a tasty and very quick side dish that can be whipped up in less than 15 minutes. It pairs nicely with chicken, so on those busy evenings, you can grab some leftovers or one of those rotisserie chickens from the grocery store, a quick salad or frozen veggie, and the couscous, and dinner is on the table in less than a half hour!
Nice, right?

I Tried It! ~ Homemade Face Powder Foundation

As soon as I saw the Homemade Face Powder Foundation on My Merry Messy Life, I knew I wanted to try it! Sara promised that it was all natural and easy, and she was right!
I mixed some up on less than five minutes, and tried it out.

Like Sara, I am fair-skinned, so I used cornstarch and a little cinnamon.I found that I only needed 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to the 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch. I didn't add an essential oil, only because I don't have any at the moment. I think I am going to be adding one that is nourishing to dry skin. My skin is combination, but I think the powder itself will help with the areas that tend to get a little oily after being out and about in the heat all day. Sara says that Palmarosa is hydrating, so I may try that!
