Crochet Hair Scrunchies

Hello, hello, how is everyone doing? I hope you all had a great weekend with family and friends!

The first project I thought about when I started to learn to crochet is making myself some hair scrunchies, but I have not yet made even one until now, though it's a easy project. I decided to make some over the weekend, and they were really fun to make!

One in light blue...

One in variegated color of red and white...

And another one in pink...

I just love these small lovely stuff and really enjoy wearing them!

They look so nice, don't they? I will make more to match my shirts! Would you like the pattern? I'm working on the tutorial and will post it shortly! Just come back!
Thank you for your time, hope your new week is awesome!

See you later! ♥

Bicycle and Flowers...

Hello everyone!

Not much to post about today, I just pop in to say "Hi" to you all! I'm still around, but have been so bad in updating my blog the last few weeks. I just have too many distractions at the moment...

I found this lovely bicycle back when cleaning my house over the weekend. A friend gave it to me about tens years ago, it's handmade with a kind of wood which I don't know its name. Just love it. Some tiny flowers to put in the basket in the front is not a bad idea, right? ;-)

Just a cute bicycle, some little flowers which brought me the hook, would make me happy enough!

Wishing your days are always wonderful and delightful...!!! See you soon!

Lots of love, ♥

    Learn more about "45 Lessons..."

    Hello everyone!

    Thank you very much for your comments on my last post and I'm so happy you like the "45 Lessons Life Taught Me".

    After reading one of the comments on my blog that Regina is an Urban Legend, my dear friend Donna had spent time to find more about her from her official site and found that Regina herself is the author of  "45 Lessons Life Taught Me" not anyone else. She wrote this when she was 45, and added 5 more to her list when she was 50, you can refer those on her site above, "50 Life Lessons". She is not an Urban Legend.

    Both Donna and I agreed that we should post this to our blogs, as Regina is really an incredible woman and her life lessons are really wonderful and honorable.

    Thank you for your time. Wishing everyone a gorgeous day!

    All the best,

    45 Lessons Life Taught Me

    After reading this from my friend's blog, Donna at GG's Creative Corner, I know I will print it out to read and remember it by each day. My craft blog today has a non-craft post as I would love to reprint it here to share you all. Hope you like this as much as I do. Thank you Donna for sharing these precious words...

    Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland, Ohio.

    "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written.

    My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more:

    1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.

    2. When in doubt, just take the next small step.

    3. Life is too short – enjoy it.

    4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and family will.

    5. Pay off your credit cards every month.

    6. You don't have to win every argument. Stay true to yourself.

    7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone.

    8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it.

    9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck.

    10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile.

    11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present.

    12. It's OK to let your children see you cry.

    13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about.

    14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it.

    15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye But don't worry; God never blinks.

    16.. Take a deep breath. It calms the mind.

    17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful. Clutter weighs you down in many ways.

    18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger.

    19. It's never too late to be happy. But it’s all up to you and no one else.

    20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer.

    21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special.

    22. Over prepare, then go with the flow.

    23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple.

    24. The most important sex organ is the brain.

    25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you.

    26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words 'In five years, will this matter?'

    27. Always choose life.

    28. Forgive but don’t forget.

    29. What other people think of you is none of your business.

    30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time.

    31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change.

    32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

    33. Believe in miracles.

    34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do.

    35. Don't audit life. Show up and make the most of it now.

    36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young.

    37. Your children get only one childhood.

    38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved.

    39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere.

    40. If we all throw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.

    41. Envy is a waste of time. Accept what you already have not what you need.

    42. The best is yet to come...

    43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up.

    44. Yield.

    45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift."
