Good Morning Everyone!! Hope you had a very healthy breakfast and a good cup of coffee already 🙂

And I am hoping you had a very productive weekend and The List is getting shorter by the hour, let us stay focused for a stress free December.

Changing subjects: I found some cute buttons, the ones that comes extra on blouses for replacement, and I think it will look good on the T/W Bag:

 I went to my local JoAnn’s store and found some clearance yarn for 97 cents and was super excited to find some bulky yarn in there, got disappointed when the cashier said No!, this is not clearance, someone put it in there by mistake, Isn’t that cruel? goodness, I think it is 🙂

Here is my yarn, the stripped yarns was the cheap ones:


I also mailed off my #MandalsforMarinke  mandalas:  one made with left over yarn the other with 100% recycled t-shirt yarn, I hope we bring healing and inspiration to depression sufferers.

Next, I completed the second beanie for Operation Gratitude and mailed it.  I hope the troops  get it before winter sets in.


And I learned the Even Moss crochet stitch, it is pretty simple but makes very nice dishcloth and it can be used for other projects.

This is all for today Monday, Wishing you a great and safe week, free of worries….Stay Safe! Enjoy Today, It Is A Gift!! 🙂



I try to keep my posts upbeat for the most part but sometimes it is necessary to discuss more serious matters.

Depression is a serious illness and if not treated sometimes it leads to suicide. 

I was visiting with Kathryn from Crochet Concupiscence and saw that she has a project by the name of #mandalasforMarinke.

When I read what it was all about I decided that I was going to take part and that I needed to share this project with you and hopefully you will take part too.

Marinke or Wink was the crochet designer behind “A Creative Being” blog. I came across that blog several times in my travels 🙂 and I liked her creations, so it was shocking to know that she had died. Please click on the links and it will explain everything. 

I would like to say:  if you feel that you are depressed and think you need help to kick depression to the curb, then  please reach out to one person or a group of people or a doctor and don’t be ashamed to ask for help.

Life is difficult at times, but we should know that bad times will pass.

I will admit that I don’t suffer from depression but it is only because I stay away from what triggers it.

Each person has their own unique triggers, and it is important to identify them.

Let me share with you what my triggers are: 1- the horrible daily news 2- a sedentary lifestyle 3- no sunlight for days.

When I don’t take the steps to correct these triggers I can literally feel myself descending…

And I try to stay grateful, none of us have the  “Perfect Life” because that life does not exist, so be thankful for the little things in life.

Okay, let me stop here. Please send a SOS if you need help….

Stay positive and take part of #mandalasforMarinke, God bless You!


 Rest In Peace Marinke.
