How to crochet a funky ripple blanket

Two and a half years ago, crochet ripple blankets were all the rage. I love a Missoni-style pattern, and it was getting cold on the couch in the evenings. I decided to join in on the Crochet Ripple-Along, hosted by One Crafty Mumma. This was in April, 2013. Three winters later, it’s finally complete. It’s […]

Backwards Menu Planning (for those who hate to menu plan)

Do you look at menu planning systems and printables and wonder why can’t I get my act together and menu plan? I’m a pretty organised, logical person, but I just can’t get it together to menu plan.

How to create a morning routine that works!

When I was in high school, I had a finely-tuned morning routine. My goal was to sleep as late as possible, but still get to school on time. I’d get out of bed at 8:10am, and be in the classroom door when the siren went at 8:50am (I was lucky have a 10 minute walk […]
