When we moved, we found ourselves puzzling over what to do with a big wall cutout in the living room meant for an old-style TV (you know, the kind we had way back when in the stone age before flat screens—reason #276 my kids will think I'm ancient). Shelves seemed an obvious answer, but given how low to the ground it was, it would immediately become the 1 year old's stomping grounds (aka useless for any actual storage). We brainstormed a bit and decided to turn it into a reading nook! Perfect for my little nerdlets-in-training who LOVE to read. So I designed this handy book basket to add to our new reading nook. It's sturdy, lovely, and ideal for storing and toting around books.
Crochet Mandala Wall Art
In spite of all the craziness, we've successfully made our move cross-country! And we are excited to be here in Arizona (even if it's basically like living in an oven right now). But it turns out that moving from a tiny student housing apartment with cinderblock walls into an actual house means that we suddenly have waaay more wall space to fill. That, combined with moving being really expensive, means that it's the perfect time for some DIY wall art. So I pulled out my hooks and created this crocheted mandala wall hanging! Oh, crochet, is there anything you can't do?
