Month of Gratitude, week four

So, this is it – the last day of November, and the last day of the Month of Gratitude project.  Did you enjoy yourselves?  I hope so.  My own month was inconvenient health-wise, and the tendency to get fed up with neck aches, fevers, sniffles, and antibiotics was present throughout much of it.  But times […]

Fiesta Hat Tutorial

It’s time for another Polka Dot Download! I’ve been wanting to write this one up for ages and I finally sat down and did it. Fiesta Hats are great one-night projects, featuring bright colors and simple techniques. I’ve written instructions for both loom knitters and needle knitters, so you can make these hats no matter […]

Make-Ahead Apple Pie

It all started with a bag of apple “seconds,” a willing assistant, and a photo op.  Eamonn was helping me break in our new apple peeler/corer/slicer, and I (of course) had the camera out for the occasion.  “Let’s make a video,” said he, and before long we found ourselves embarking on a multi-part Flufy Makes […]

The Black Friday – Cyber Monday Sale!

Happy Thanksgiving! I usually spend Black Friday hanging around in my pj’s with the rest of the family, maybe geeking out on the computer, maybe reading a book, maybe knitting something, probably enjoying a little leftover apple pie… I rarely give much thought to shopping.  Even as a store-owner myself! Well that all is changing […]

Month of Gratitude, week three

Oops, I missed posting on Friday. I spent Friday morning trying to sleep off the remains of my cold and Friday afternoon packing for the weekend trip we’d been planning for some time. A word to the wise: when the little voice in your head suggests that maybe you should leave a day later in […]

When it rains…

…it pours.  Finally getting over my sore neck issues, and now I have my son’s cold (but with a twist – I was lucky enough to get a fever and a headache, too).  Throw in a little PMS just for kicks, and well, it’s been a fun few days over here. Yesterday I was good […]

Friday Photo Love, Month of Gratitude Week 2

Twelve days in, and I feel my enthusiasm starting to fizzle.  Maybe a month is too much?  It’s not that I am not thankful for the many wonderful things in my life, it’s just that I’m not really feeling like photographing them.  Maybe it’s the neck ache talking – I haven’t been sleeping well, waking […]
