My Original Crochet Hat

A few years back my mom and I decided to start selling our crochet items on eBay as Mother Daughter Crochet Creations. We tried lots of different items and eventually found our nitch in baby clothing. In my quest to find patterns and things we could make easily and affordable I spent a lot of time on the internet and with my face in crochet pattern books. The thing I thought was the easiest to make was a hat but every time I would go to make one I had to find a pattern. The free ones you find on the internet normally have a flaw in them and the ones you find in the pattern books can be complicated. Even though I had been crocheting since I was young I wanted and needed a simply hat I could make over and over, changing colors or adding flowers or embelishments. Also, I wanted to be able to make the hat in different sizes. I like to crochet in the evening while I watch a bit of television or a movie and so I wanted something I could eventually memorize.

The Mullet Dress...Yes, No, Maybe?

If you aren't hip to what a mullet dress is...it's short in the front and long in the back. I have been spotting some of these dresses on the internet and some I like and some I don't.

The mullet is flying and I love her shoes! Guess if you're fist fighting yourself you'll forget all about your mullet in the back :o) Just watch out for that left hook!

My first post.....

I hope you will join me on my fashion journey. It's been a long time since I have been interested in clothes, persay, so I am long overdue. One of the things I thought about at the beginning of the year was that I needed to "cute myself up" and wear some of those clothes I have buried in my closet. I have to throw away items, iron items and get a real finger on just what I do have that's worth keeping and then the fashion parade is on. Probably even come across a few things I've forgotten I even have. Seems like I've been living in jeans, sweaters and the same 4 or 5 work skirts. I am so in need of a fashion makeover!
Needless to say a little shopping was in order to get me motivated plus I had a wedding anniversary coming up and I wanted to look my best for that special day. A new dress was what I needed! Besides it was 13 years and I didn't want to tempt fate with bad luck....I HAD to look my best! A new dress was what I needed! In my online search for…
