It’s been quite awhile since I’ve done a Links, Likes, and Love.  A lot has been going on, but I wanted to share with you some things I’m a part of.


  • Make it Better: Craftalong for Sandy Relief– In response to Hurricane Sandy some folks got together and enlisted crafters to create warm things for those who are without electricity, heat, or homes.  I sent a package out this week containing some mittens I had made last winter, a few hats I whipped up, and a scarf I had been working on forever but didn’t have a reason to finish.  The deadline for submissions is tomorrow, but I’ll keep my eyes out for other projects incase you want to contribute.
  • The Kick Start Your Handmade Holiday Shopping Giveaway- My friend Carrie is doing an awesome giveaway!  I’m thankful for her and her effort to encourage people to buy handmade this holiday season.  Hop on over and enter and you could soon be an owner of something awesome from The Pink Woobie!


  • You!- I am so grateful for each one of you who keep coming back to read what I have to say.  Things are slow sometimes, but I still feel like I have a lot of important things to say, so don’t give up on me.  It’s only because I know some of you out there are interested that I keep writing.  
  • The Weather- yes, it’s getting cold but I own a lot of warm accessories from all the years of crocheting.  But it’s been mostly sunny, and my body doesn’t get overwhelmed like it does in the heat.  Many days this summer I hid in my bedroom with the AC cranked.  It’s so nice to be able to go outside, take a walk, drink a coffee, without sweat pouring out of everywhere.
  • My electric blanket- this goes along with the weather.  Although my body doesn’t get overwhelmed as much in the cold, my joints and muscles do hurt a little more.  I’m combatting that with an amazing electric blanket that Ryan got me.  I highly suggest investing in one for anyone who might struggle with the cold.  I can’t believe the difference it makes compared to a normal blanket.
I’m not really sure this even needs words.  This is Popeye helping me with my spinning.  What a good cat!
