meet.make.crochet-along: watermelon coasters

Crochet Watermelon Coasters

It has been awhile since one of us has participated in Alicia's crochet-along, and so this month I was definitely ready to join in! I needed a little break from the baby crocheting and my big afghan and this was the perfect excuse. 

The link-up is over at More Than.... by Muriel Mohns, and one of the options was watermelon coasters, which I have been wanting to make for awhile!

meet.make.granny ripple afghan.

The project that felt like it would never end has finally been completed! I decided months ago that I wanted to make an afghan for my brother-in-law and soon to be sister-in-law as a wedding gift, and it is finally done. I even had a couple weeks to spare. I'm really happy with the finished product, but I think I'm even more happy that I don't have to work on it anymore. ;) Time to move onto some quick gratifying projects!

meet.make.baby room wall art.

Who' excited about all the ROYAL BABY buzz today?! We are, we are!! 

All this talk is getting us even more anxious for baby to arrive! Just over TWO weeks until our official due date but as most moms tell me, baby will come, when baby wants too! Sooooo we're making sure all is ready to go! Not quite the same caliber of preparations of the royal family but we have most of our ducks in a row as we await the big day...

The baby crafting continues.... crochet monster hat

Crochet Baby Monster Hat with earflaps

I completed another baby hat recently.... a lil' monster hat! This one is going to my lovely friend Stephanie (yes another Stephanie) who is due this month. She doesn't yet know if it is a boy or a girl but I think the lil' monster will work for either!

meet.make.wedding: framed lyrics.

If you hadn't figured out already, my life tends to revolve around music. Certain songs can take you back to your favourite summer, snowboarding in Jasper or maybe even... your first kiss!
For our wedding, I really wanted to encorporate some of Kyle and my "songs" to share with others, and maybe get our guests to think of some of theirs as well!

meet.make.music: summer jams

The summer sun seems to be sticking around Victoria this time.. FINALLY! Which means some serious beach time, camping, hiking and of course, crafting. With all of these fun activities, there is always music involved.

We haven't shared a music post in awhile, so to kick-off the summer months, here are a few of our favorite picks right now!

meet.make.30th birthday piñata.

DIY 30th Birthday Pinata

Our lovely friend Viv has a big birthday coming up.... 30! We wanted to surprise her with something fun while we all went camping last weekend, and decided that a piñata would be the perfect way kick-off the celebration. We also made cupcakes, but as delicious as they were, we figured sharing our Betty Crocker boxed cupcakes were not exactly blog worthy.

Originally we wanted to do a paper mache piñata, but we definitely were not organized to get that done in time. We then decided on using cereal boxes, and followed this awesome tutorial from Bret and Nancye.

Below are some photos of our night making the piñata... it was almost as much fun to make as it was to watch Viv smash it!
