Some projects are finished quickly, with the flow moving in one steady stream. When it's finished, the project is simply complete. Satisfying and clear. Other projects take time, and thought and the right moment. The latter is what happened with this giant dream catcher, that I've nick-named "Giant Dreamy" because writing giant dream catcher every time is too long. And this kind of project often takes on a life of its own...

Finding something spontaneous on a journey is more valuable than any plan you could hope yo make. We can walk in with no expectations and find ourselves not only pleasantly surprised, but stunned by the surroundings we come to experience.
Enjoy these stunning pics from a recent trip to Steamboat Springs!

To listen to while reading:
PART 1. You
First there is you. Your abilities. Your excitement. Your doubts.
There is working through the moment, at midnight before you hike out, that what you’ve been told – a 4 mile hike in and out - is actually a 7.4 mile hike each way. You hold back tears (which come mostly from over tiredness, but also from fear that you can’t do it, that your body will not hold you all that way.) You let a few tears fall just because it feels better that way. Then you try to get some sleep.
There is the early morning drive, and psyching yourself up. Willing yourself to get excited about doing something that may or may not suck. Then there is letting go and trusting. You have everything you will need. There is nothing left but to allow. Watching the greenery fly past the car window, the mountains and the open road beckoning you. The hawk trolling the skies, welcoming you. That familiar feeling of freedom.
PART 2. The Trail
I am so excited to share this with you!
I just posted this CROCHET TUTORIAL video on how to make an adorable little daisy!
It's a bit between beginner and intermediate, so give it a shot. It's a perfect little gift! Add it to a bracelet, hair tie, necklace, key-chain, a nice touch to packaging, or what ever you like!
Grab your hook, pick out some fun yarn and let's get to it!
When you "Join The Tribe" you'll get the free written pattern download - once you do, head on over to the video to crochet along with me, or take it at your own pace! That's the beauty of the written pattern. Plus, it's colorful, it's fun, and it's pretty simple.
Let me know in the comments if you try this out, or if you have any questions!

Have you noticed tassels are all over the place (and on everything)?

They are so much fun & just ooze fun beachy vibes which I need in my life.
(East Coast - Denver transplant, here, hi, nice to meet you! Read this for more of that story.)
This bag just went LIVE on the Etsy shop - and I'm super excited to make more with tassels and straps!
