Just stopping in to show all of my followers some blog hopping love! I may appear MIA for a bit but I have been busy digging into a multiple of crafts! I cannot show you just yet, what I have been working on because they are all for the various crafty swaps I have joined and my recipients cannot see what I have made till they receive the items or that would kill the element of the surprise!
I have joined two card swaps at the Paper Digital Art Center with the peeps in the House Mouse group, I just love those little mieces to pieces! I do !
I stopped along the way to my favorite cooking and baking challenge website called Daring Cooks. I participated in the most recent baking challenge making Chimney Cake. Please hop on over to my cooking blog at Aunt B's Cookin' see what messes I make in the kitchen.
On Ravelry, a site for the yarn enthusiasts of all kinds. I joined a 12" square block crochet a long. I have been a tad behind on those squares so I have whipped up April & May just yesterday to be exact! I will post pics later. At the end of the year I will put all the squares together and Afghan 2014 complete!
I couldn't stop there. No, no, no, I joined a few crochet groups on Facebook. Oh yes I did! We are also having fun crocheting a square and mailing to our swap partners every month. #2 Afghan of the year will be complete by the beginning of 2015.
We also swap other items every month of various kinds but all are crochet. And how could I forget, the temperature scarf we have been working on and swapping every month for everyone to add their temps based on a color chart for temperatures. It is is so colorful I look forwrd to getting mine at the end of year and seeing the colors from everyone around the nation!
With all of the crochet projects I have been getting myself into, I have picked up a few customers along the way requesting crochet items! It couldn't get any better than this! Or can it? I hope to find out! Stay tuned!

What a nice surprise! I am a runner's up over at DS4J blog challenge!
I wanted to whip up a card to try and get that card making mojo back and had no thoughts on winning or being a runner up at all! What was starting out as an aggravating day trying to figure out the darn TV remote control has now turned into a wonderful day with this bit of pick me up news! Thanks everyone!

Using one of my Digistamps4Joy digi images. I made a baby Boy gift tag to go onto the baby boy afghan I am working on at the moment. The challenge over on the DS4J blog is all about "NEW" so what better to pick than a newborn baby! This is the first card I have made in 8 months and I feel very rusty, to say the least. My photographing skills are lacking along with my card making mojo, So when I get my hand made light box back together I will change out the photo with a better picture, as for the mojo well all I can say is practice, practice, practice! :)

I had hoped to make two pairs of baby socks to go with the afghan as a baby shower gift set. Unfortunately, my baby socks were not small enough for a newborn. I am just grateful they were near the same size and actually look like socks!! :)
