Just the beginning

This blog is about living the life you want. I am a pagan woman living in a modern society where people are judgemental & rude to what they don’t understand. I am a firm believer in being who you truly want to be, I am a mom of 2 beautiful kids whom are 9 & 6, I am in the process of a divorcing a narcissist. And after 14 months I have found love again with someone who wants to be with me and he wants to be there for my kids. I want to be able to connect with people on a human level. I am a crafter of all sorts but mostly comes down to crocheting.

If we are all kind to one human a day what would this world come to.

Wool dryer balls…

I have decided to try my had at making these and let me tell ya, it’s quite easy! The first few rounds of wraps are the most challenging but it works up into a chemical free dryer ball. Directions underneath

Materials needed:

100% wool yarn/roving

Knee high stocking ( I paid .35$)

Sissiors

Yarn needle

And a bit of acrylic yarn

DIY Wool Dryer Balls

Any 100% wool yarn/roving will work, I wrapped my 2 fingers about 15 times, slid the yarn off and repeated this until I reached my desired size of my dryer ball! They work up super quick, once you are finished making the balls to your desired size weave in your tail and place in stockings until taut and tie off with acrylic yarn in between balls.

Wash in a hot wash with towels or something that can be washed in hot water and dry on a hot cycle with the same load. Peel them out of the stockings and run your nail on them like a small scratch to make sure felting has taken place if not repeat the wash and dry cycles. If you would like it scented you can use essential oils to your liking.

Writers block!?

First off I want to say happy Halloween, Thanksgiving and happy holidays. It’s sure been a while since I have logged on, let alone written anything. It’s sure been a rough 4ish month, I lost what was to be a a very bright blessing, brother was hit by someone who ran a stop sign, we lost 3/4 of our flock from either a dog or coyote. But on a very bright note to this dismal year, my boyfriend is starting a new job and then in a couple of months we are buying a home.

Onto the crochet block….I have been trying to do small projects as I can finish one thing to save my soul. I was able to finish the baby set I had started for my new nephew coming in the middle of next month, and then my children suckered me into making hats for their classes….58 hats total, what was I thinking saying yes…lol, I am almost half done, thank goodness.

I will be posting the links to the patterns when I get them posted on etsy or ravelry so please be patient with me.

And once again thanks for reading the Pagan Princess Crochet Blog

Expecting!?!?!

I’m sure by the title of this post y’all can guess what it’s about! LOL

I went in for what I thought was just my cholesterol lab work, well about 5 hours later my lab work came back with a much different result than I was expecting (pun intended)…and my heart sank. I’m still in a state of shock, although I am happy and excited at the same time. What’s even more of a shock is the fact I was taking the pill, (99.9% effective) clearly I fall in the .1 percent! I am going to be going to my first ultrasound in about a week. I will have more updates soon.

P.S. I am working on a crochet cape pattern to be able to share with y’all soon!

Crafting at it’s finest.

So as you all know I am a crafter at heart and it’s been a long time since I’ve wanted to pick up a hook and make something. Yes talking about the not so new art of hooking (Crochet). Well then about 2 weeks ago I decided to start working on a blanket for my boyfriend who’s been my rock through these last 4 months. He’s a Veteran so naturally it’s an American Flag, but none the less I’m finally doing what I love to do and that’s make the ones who appreciate the art form of hooking…..yes I’m still talking about crochet.

The world we live in

How many of you have stopped and taken a look at what’s going on in the world and thought what could make it better. As a free-spirited Pagan woman I’ve had a few moments where I’ve have felt like nothing is going to get better and moments where I felt nothing could bring me down from the high that is life. Then I stop and notice how fast my once small babies are growing into beautiful young children. I look at things very differently than most as I have seen, felt and been touched by so amazing & horrible things in my life.
