What are Snapguides?


Do you love to make things?

Well if your reading this blog I assume that you love to make things, that's the whole point of this little chunk of interwebs.

Craft Paper
Colorful paper for crafting!
Photographic tutorials are one of my favorite things about the internet (well that and cat pictures).  If you want to do something, from wash your dishes to building a shed powered with solar panels in your back yard, there is a tutorial on the internet that will take you through step by step in how to complete your project.

Looking around for some new projects to try out, I came across this awesome website called Snapguide.  They are not endorsing this post and anyway and really have no idea I am writing such kind words about them, but I just had to share this ridiculously huge wealth of "How-To" knowledge with all of my readers out there.


One could get lost for days looking around this website.  It's more addicting than pinterest....and that's pretty tough title to win.

What makes this site really awesome is the ability to embed their Snapguides, just like a YouTube video.

Check out How to Draw Olaf From Frozen by Pencil and Pen on Snapguide.

I love watching how to do things on Youtube but sometimes with certain projects it's easier to have words and pictures rather than someone speaking to you through the course of an entire video, it's also easier to rewind steps with this format.  I really can't wait to try out some of these awesome tutorials.

Ohh, I almost forgot, they have an app too and it looks outstanding.

Now back to my holiday crochet---will be sharing posts with all of those projects after the holidays.  Some of my gift recipients follow my blog and I can't ruin their surprises!!!!

Pink Pineapple Doily Free Crochet Pattern

Hello and Greetings Everyone I know I haven't been around a lot to post lately but with the holidays, well everyone knows how that goes... But I am back and I have a new crochet pattern to share, it's called the Pink Pineapple Doily The original pattern appeared in 1951 in the publication Star Book No. 87, Doilies, Doilies, Doilies. For a printer friendly and editable version of this post, scroll down to the bottom and click the button that says "Print Friendly." I am absolutely in love with this doily. It looks like a very complex pattern but if your are just starting to make doilies and other crochet goods this is a great pattern to learn how to read other, more complex patterns.

5 Interesting Non Traditional Crochet Square Patterns

I absolutely love to crochet squares.  The very first crochet pattern I ever learned by heart was the granny square.  Even now, years and years later, when I am bored and I just want to crochet for the pure joy of crochet, the granny square is my go to pattern.  I know many other crocheters out there feel the same way and that's why crocheting squares is so popular.  There are so many square patterns out there, a crocheter could never complete them all in a life time.  I decided to search up a few really awesome squares and I felt were unique but still reminded me of that classic pattern I love so much.  These are the patterns that I found.  The stained glass afghan pattern costs a $1.99 but the rest of the patterns listed here are completely free and they are featured on the blogs of other designers.  All of these designs are now additions to my crochet bucket list.
