DIY Red, White and Blue Hair Ties in 15 Minutes

Dear readers, I just finished a weekend that made my heart feel full and content. My nephew and my mom came up to visit for a few days from back home. It was the first time I've seen my nephew in a very long time. Sadly with work, Squeak, and budgets (oh my) I haven't been able to make the trip home as much as I want too. This weekend, home came to me! We spent a lot of time…

Happy New Year’s Eve from Ms. Moxie xoxo

Dear readers, Welcome to 2017... I had a wonderful New Year's Eve. From the moment my night started, to the very end when I walked home at 2 am in my sparkly mini-dress. Well, that part wasn't exceptionally wonderful, but I was happy to not drink and drive. I felt like a glowing ball of love all night because I was so happy to be around my friends and co-workers. I felt so blessed. I also threw up the rocker…

Happy Holidays! From my little family to yours…

Dear beloved readers, Happy 2017! Congrats we made it through to another year. The holiday season in the world of single mothers isn't always the hap-happiest season of all. In fact, for the last three years there has been a lot of unhappiness surrounding the holidays in my life. Divorce. Death. Depression. If it wasn't for the perfect little face of my daughter, I'd probably be one of those women who space-out over a bottle of wine until the holiday…

11 Pre-Holiday Items You NEED to Thrift for Right Now

Dear readers, It's September, you know in a week or two we will be going crazy for the holidays.

Soon enough you will be roaming Pinterest for ideas on home-made centerpieces, decorations, and gift ideas, so now is the perfect time to start scouring thrift stores for these crafty, useful items that are…

Happy 4th of July!

Dearest readers, I had a wonderful 4th of July. I haven't been too keen on celebrating the holidays since the divorce. I do all the typical fun stuff for Squeak, but without a big family to celebrate with, there is a small amount of emptiness that still lingers. However, I think it's about time to have my own independence, from the past and not the British, so I borrowed some one else's family for the 4th of July.   Squeak…

Valentine’s Day Bake Sale Success!

Exciting news, Crafts for Cause had it's very first bake sale on February 1st, 2014. This particular bake sale was to raise money to buy blankets for our local homeless centers. We managed to raise way more money than our intended goal. The very first monetary donation ever! We had our bake sale at Glen's Market during the annual I-500 snow mobile race, so I think that had a major impact in our success. Also, our group has some very…

Just the Beginning

So. It's been a rough few months for me. And I've found the best thing to get through a rough patch in life (aside from wine) is to stay busy. The main way I have wanted to stay busy, as always, is through creating and crocheting. And so "Crafts for Cause" was born, the little brainchild of a sad time. My friends and I are always looking for a way to give back to our little community. So we started…
