    Welcome to Submarine Sunday! HAPPY EASTER!!! Thank you for partying with me each week! Yet again, a week has gone by without me creating something. I've been tired. I recently announced in my recent 7 Quick Takes post that I'm 11 weeks pregnant, so I have been taking a lot of naps...

  • Crochet Ladybug Applique

    Last month, I shared a pink, gray, and white granny square blanket with a crochet ladybug applique that I made for a friend as a baby shower gift. While making this applique, I wrote down what I did, so I could make a pattern to share with you all. And here it is...

  • Easter Bunny Door Hanger

    I was inspired by Rock-A-Bye Parents' DIY Easter Bunny Wall Hanging and decided to create my own using two straw hats that I purchased from the Dollar Tree ...

  • Crochet Easter Egg Wreath for Mom (With Pattern)

    Over the weekend, I finished this crochet Easter wreath for my mom. She loves having a wreath for every season and every holiday. So I decided that I'd try to make a wreath for my mom ...

Welcome to Submarine Sunday! HAPPY EASTER!!! Thank you for partying with me each week! Yet again, a week has gone by without me creating something. I've been tired. I recently announced in my recent 7 Quick Takes post that I'm 11 weeks pregnant, so I have been taking a lot of naps. I just don't have energy! I did start on a crochet Caillou doll for my daughter, but I haven't finished yet. I had planned on making her a fabric Easter basket and including the crocheted Caillou and some Caillou bath toys in the basket, but that didn't happen. Instead, my husband bought her an Easter basket last night. It includes a ball, sidewalk chalk, and candy, of course. He also bought her a little basket of Easter eggs shaped like Sofia the Great. I've been thinking that I can sew a Caillou pillow for her...eventually.

Easter Cards Featuring My Krissy Pooh!

For certain holidays, I like to send family pictures of Krissy with their holiday cards. So I recently took some picture of Krissy wearing her Easter dress and holding a Build-A-Bear bunny. After snapping the pics, I went to Wal-Mart to print them out, and here are the pics:

7 Quick Takes on Good Friday

Posted by T'onna Peters | Friday, April 18, 2014 Categories: , , , ,
---1---
I decided to share some exciting news with my Facebook friends, so I figured I might as well share it with my bloggy friends as well.... Well, as of tomorrow I will be 11 weeks pregnant!  I was trying to wait until I'm out of the 1st trimester to make the announcement, but I couldn't wait. I kept telling people when I'd run into them while out running errands. I am still nervous because my previous 2 pregnancies ended in miscarriages (at 4 weeks and 7 weeks). But I'm almost done with the 1st trimester and my symptoms are so strong that I have faith that this baby is going to make it, and I can't wait to meet him/her.

Liebster Award

Recently, I received the Liebster Award from two awesome bloggers, Holly at The Coconut Head's Cancer Survival Guide and Tina at Encore Creations. Thank you both very much! I've received the Liebster Award a couple times already, but it's always fun!!!
The Liebster Award nominates 11 blogs who have less than 200 readers, although this seems to be a flexible requirement.  The Liebster Award Bloggers answers 11 questions given to them by their nominator.  Then we pay it forward and each nominee does a post and nominates 11 bloggers with their own 11 questions.

Submarine Sunday #79

Welcome to Submarine Sunday! Thank you for partying with me each week! I'm always happy when there are over 100 links in a party! I didn't create anything last week because I've been very busy trying to get rid of some old clothes, baby items, and other random things that are in our storage closets. I feel like it's going to take forever to get rid of all this old stuff. I get attached to clothes and don't want to let them go even though I haven't worn them in years! I've been donating my old things to Goodwill. Anyhoo, I'd like to see whatever you all have been working on, especially your Easter crafts. I am going to start working on something for my daughter's Easter basket as soon as I'm done with this post. So check out this week's features, and link up your creations below!

Welcome to Submarine Sunday! Thank you for partying with me each week! You may have noticed that I have a new blog design. so what do you think?

Preppy Pony Print Purse From Sammydress

Posted by T'onna Peters | Wednesday, April 02, 2014 Categories: ,
*Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links, and I received a complimentary product in exchange for my honest review. 
I've always been a girly girl, and I have a love for gorgeous, unique, and fun purses. While browsing the Sammydress website, my eyes were drawn to this Preppy Women's Crossbody Bag With Pony Print and Zipper Design, and I knew that I had to have it! This adorable bag is available in Sapphire Blue or Pink. I wear a lot of blue, so I requested the blue bag. I love that it can be worn as a crossbody bag or as a shoulder bag. This is a great quality bag, and I love the designs on the front, especially the pony and the heart. The inside of the bag is also very spacious, which is a major plus for me as the mother of a toddler. I have room for all my stuff and a snack and maybe a small toy or to for her. However, I think this bag would be perfect for a fun girls' night out. I'm sure I'll get lots of compliments when I carry this fun, unique purse.

Submarine Sunday #77

Welcome to Submarine Sunday! Thank you for partying with me each week! Sorry the party is so late. I've been having computer issues. Apparently, my computer no longer likes the Facebook Like Box Widget. I deleted it from my blog, but I get a security message when I try to visit some other blogs, so I assume that those blogs have that Facebook widget. Hopefully, the issue gets resolved soon. I'm also having issues with images not showing up on my blog and other blogs. Weird! Sometimes technology drives me crazy! Anyhoo, today I created an Easter Bunny Door Hanger using two hats that I purchased from the Dollar Tree. So check it out and tell me what you think!
