Long scarves any one

Hello my fellow Royals!

How’s everyone doing? 2016 is off to a start and we’re blowing through steadily. The weather here in Florida is nothing to complain about. Especially since everyone else seems to be having the opposite. On the home front my youngest is about to be one years old. Oh my! The oldest will be seven. Actually the whole family birthday is coming up in March…as well as my marriage anniversary… EXCITING!

With my shop…. I have been knitting and creating away. One of the newest things is my chunky long scarf. They are over 60 inches long.

  Still working on this one, but do have an “eggplant” colored scarf available for purchase.


Getting things done

Hello my fellow Royals!

I have been extremely busy with orders/projects. Of course with knitting projects and being focused, you always find another pattern to knit or someone to knit for. That actually goes for any project or creative flow one may have. I finally have decided that everything needs to have a schedule to when it needs to be done and/or  available for one to see. For my shop i will start to have all shop updates on Thursday. Which I definitely have a good amount that is waiting to be added. Also i need to be more active here with giving updates and checking in. So with thinking on that I’m trying to decide what day(s) would be best.

Totally switching gears now…

I noticed in life that I have tried a lot of ways to stay on top of things. Like most I try to do all on one day at one time… Mostly that ends in failure. I have always loved to plan and make lists. I tried mostly everything and even tried going “green”  and not write on paper but hit the electronic life style. I find that not to be my thing. It’s something about writing it down…checking it off…scribbling it out… makes it all worth while. As much of a yarnaholic I am, I am also addicted to paper. I love to write! 

So I leave you with this thought, how ever you get things done and/or keep track of things… DO IT! And furthermore ENJOY IT. Reach in and get creative with it!

I have to ask because I know I’m not alone. What’s your favorite way to get things done?

Let’s Ramble

Hello my fellow Royals!

How’s everything going for you all? I, myself, have been busy knitting along. I told myself I need to get better at posting things…. pouring out my creativity here…. and hopefully would inspire someone else (maybe YOU!) to pick up your knitting needles… or crochet hook… or dye… scrapbook.. or whatever that makes you happy in the creative world and CREATE. I took some time while knitting and taking care of home…. and thought about what exactly I want to focus on this year. I really don’t care for new years resolutions because most likely those are forgotten…. or “revised”. So i made a “focus list.” Things that I want to focus on knitting/creating wise are:

1 knitting more for my husband (owe him so many things)

2 knitting more for my girls (you know those little patterns that are just too cute to pass up, but somehow is forgotten)

3 knitting for myself (always never knitting for myself)

4 knitting a cardigan or sweater (something I haven’t accomplished yet)

5 actually finish a pair of socks (seems easy right…WRONG my fellow knitters whom knit socks knows the craziness with that)

6 Finish the Moderne Log Cabin Blanket (that seems to never end)

7 get back to scrapbooking (my long lost love)

8 use my sewing machine a lot more

For me this is a hefty list. Being a mommy of two little girls and a wife… All my time is claimed. I know its possible to accomplish these things as long as I believe in myself.  At least its things I want to do right?!


So I had to be honest with myself between everything I do on a daily basis and trying to load things on my shop kind of collides. I thought about it…. and thought about it a little more. Came to the conclusion I need to pick a day for my updates. Just one day a week to when I dedicate it to update dating the shop and my content. That way I have a good amount of things being added and a regular working schedule… well a schedule that works for me. That day I picked is not determined. That will be shared once i decide…. Probably Thursdays…..maybe.

Any who. I really want to thank you for taking the time out and visiting me! If you would like to learn a little bit more about me visit my About Page!

Hope you are having a very productive year so far! Have you made a Focus list?
