The early part of this week was a little crazy for me, we had Hurricane Irma hit my area as a tropical storm. This was my 9th hurricane, so old hat, but I was thinking by the time it got to us we’d barely know. That was until the fire department knocked on my door and suggested we leave…
Three days later, our power came back on and we were able to return home. Luckily, we didn’t have any storm damage, but our neighbors lost their house to a fallen tree. North to South, we’re in the middle of the state, halfway from the Florida border and still Irma didn’t slow down enough. There are still a few people in my area without power, but everyone seems to be safe and as long as you have that, you have everything.
Last week’s highlights:
As the party gets bigger, I’ll feature more highlights, but for now I definitely want to choose one that’s crochet and one that’s not each week.
For our crochet feature, Hassjes Head. Amigurumi on its own is difficult, getting a likeness of someone or something you know is amazing! Here Howling at the Moon managed to do it with her pet bunny. She also showed off the resourcefulness of medical personnel and made his whiskers out of discarded Operating Room materials (unused I’m sure). Being in the medical field myself, I totally understand! At work, we come up with some unusual resources, that is sure to carry over to everything else we do!
For our non-crochet feature, The Autumn Wreath by The Crafting Rouge. Anyone who can use a glue gun without a single burn is a pro in my opinion! Anytime I even look at one, I get a blister! She has made yet another beautiful wreath and I saw a sneak peek of another I feel in love with. I enjoy her site on a regular basis and it’s one of my weekly reads. She does also crochet, so that’s always a plus!
Now onto this week’s party.
Spread your creativity and share your posts every Thursday with Designing You! To get the most out of this link party, share and pin the links you love! We want to support each other as much as possible. If you pin, please make sure to click on the picture, and pin from the post; not this page. Pinning from the thumbnails will direct traffic to me, not the creator and we don’t want that. All links will also be pinned to our Designing You! Pinterest board.
The rules for the Designing You! link party are simple:
- Did you make it? If yes, then terrific, link it up!
- Add the link to a specific blog post, not your main site URL.
- Link up to 3 posts each week.
- Engage – visit at least two other links * comment – share – pin it if you love it – let’s support one another *
- Display the Designing You! link party graphic somewhere on your post or site. Using the following code is the best way:
