The Grammys

I love how the day after an awards event everything on tv, radio, social media, etc. Is about the star studded event. I always tell people that I did not grow up with a lot of TV time. To be more specific my grandmother did not allow me to watch tv but 1 hour a day (if my grades were good). That one hour never fell during primetime and so I never took an interest in awards shows. I am of ethnic descent and my grandmother really took the stance that all the awards shows did not pay hommage to our heritage so they were not watched in our house. Now that is no longer the case I still have no interest in ghe who wore what better shows. Does anyone else avoid these shows like the plague? If you have to stop life to watch them, please explain to me why?

New Items Ready For Etsy

I am on a mission to get my inventory up on Etsy. I have been a busy bee crocheting. I am not overly happy with my photography skills though. I am starting to realize that to be siccessful I have to do more than make thd items available. I am getting in touch with my inner marketer. So now I am studying how to take better pictures and

give a better description. I have been studying successful pages and online catalogs for better ways to describe my items. If anyone else sells on Etsy please share your story.

Etsy Page Goals

I have been planning on updsting my Etsy page but I could never get it together. However, now I have been doing well with the social media marketing. Now I have to work on this blog. Lord please help me. I struggle with what to say and topics to write about. I have a lot in my head but it never comes together on the blog. So tonight I will just rejoice in being able to keep up with my Etsy shop and I have posted 1 blog post a day, everyday for 2018. Stay tuned it will get better. #kathiscreations

Shawl Pattern

I just completed a beautiful shawl pattern. This is a paid pattern by Tsvetomira Ruskova for Avarus. The pattern name is The Harika Cowl Vest. It was a quick work up and it only took a day and a half to finish. I modified mine by adding a row of single crochet around the edges to give it a cleaner edge. Without the single crochet edge it still had a fairly smooth look. I would definitely recommend this pattern to my fellow crocheters and I look forward to working this pattern up again. I plan to add this cute accessory to my Etsy page soon.

Freezer Friendly Meals

When you are making a dish consider if it can be frozen.  If so make a double dish and freeze it for a quick dish night.  This also works on stuff like pizza dough, tomato sauce (made from scratch), alfredo sauce, pretty much any sauces, and just get creative. Don’t freeze cabbage (trust me).
