Locally Roasted Coffee...yummy!


When I say all things handmade, I really mean all things handmade! Not just crafts and such but also the things that I put in and on my body. Coffee is one of the things I cannot live without these days and I'm lucky to be able to access locally roasted organic fair trade coffee from The Well! 

Have you been to The Well? Located in downtown Alliston (81 Victoria St W, to be exact) The Well is a wonderful little coffee shop that serves pour over coffee, baked goods and light lunches. It is super cute, family friendly and an all around good place to spend your time. 

Recently the managers spend 4 months in Nicaragua and while they were there they visited one of the farms that these beans are grown. The green beans are shipped to Alliston and John (the shop manager) lovingly roasts the coffee in half pound batches. It doesn't get much better then that.  John loves coffee and he loves talking about coffee so head over to The Well and try the labour of his love!

baby hats

Here are some lovely little baby hats I just finished! 

Kade recently started at a new bigger school and everyone is asking about the hats I've made him. His librarian asked me to make matching hats for new born twins and this is what I came up with. They are so cute I don't want to give them away!

Crafting with kade!

Kade and I brought out the bake clay this afternoon and got busy! He is making all kinds of random shapes and I'm covering my metal crochet hooks to make then more funcky and gripable! I'm trying something new with these ones, I'm using a different color clay to put the number on them! Very cute!


Good Morning! 

It has been much to long since I have posted on my blog....I have been doing so much crafting and lots of DYI projects but I just haven't had time to post, so here is a picture of a lovely Doily Blanket I recently made! 


If you're looking to find the pattern and make one of these lovely blankets for yourself you can scoot over to see Lisa at Good Knits! I had the pleasure of testing this pattern for her last month and it was super fun to do. She has great free patterns on her page too! 

Thanks for stopping by and I will try to post again soon!
