Swirly Brim Hat

I am SO excited about how cute these swirly brim hats turned out that I found on classy crochet (click here)! Here are a few of the hats and scarves that I’ve made:

In the picture I am wearing the color harvest, and the other hat is sweet grass. These hats and scarves are  50% wool, 50% acrylic, so they’re warm and snuggly! A hat is $25 and a scarf is $20. The matching set is $40, so you save $5! I am currently working on the following colors: petal pink, granite (a dark grey), mushroom (an off-white color), and velvet (a dark purple).

Coffee Koozie $5: add color

Here in Colorado, it doesn’t feel like summer is on the way since it snowed all day yesterday (Yep! You heard right–April 27th and it snowed all day!), but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t prepare! Summer will come eventually! These reusable coffee koozies from Emily’s Art Room are a great way to kick off summer. They can be used for hot or cold drinks, and they fit any standard to-go cup or a can of soda. I took my son out for a special frozen treat from Starbucks, and this basket weave koozie inspired by this pattern from One Dog Woof was the perfect thing to keep his little fingers from getting too cold.

They also make great gifts for teacher appreciation! Just slide one on a teacher’s favorite drink from Starbucks or use a printable tag like this one from eighteen25 with a Starbucks gift card. It adds a personal touch to a standard gift! You can also get creative with your gift giving by pairing a custom coffee koozie with some of these free printables:

Kinder Surprise Eggs

Easter for sale

Kinder Surprise Eggs, which originated in Europe, are chocolate eggs that hold a little toy inside. Using the same concept, I got a pattern from One Dog Woof for these 3 inch jumbo eggs disguised as bunnies, minions, cats, and more. These super cute egg animals were a big hit this Easter! My 3 year old son had a blast playing with his little monster and opening it up to find a surprise inside! monster eggKinder Surprise Eggs are for sale for $10 each.
