I missed you last week! My day job has been keeping me very busy, and I am just pooped lately! In my free time, I’ve mostly just been cuddling with my sweet cats, crocheting an afghan and watching some of my favorite shows (Criminal Minds, Major Crimes, Bones, The Closer, NCIS). I’ve been wanting to try Bones Coffee for a while now, so I ordered some Oatmeal Cream Pie flavored coffee, and have been enjoying that this week too. Mmm!
I haven’t made a ton of progress in my craft room closet, but I did order a new card organizing box. I like the ones from Current on Amazon. I have 4 of them – 2 for blank cards, and 2 for cards I’ve received. They are sturdy, pretty, hold a lot of cards and stack well.
In case you missed last week’s edition of The Rockwood Lane Weekly 21. Thank you to Maggie of Crochet Happens for helping out with the photo collage! Check out her Etsy Shop for some great handmade items, like these adorable little Pocket Hearts.

I chose to make the garland with them, and I am going to use it to decorate the front of my desk at work.”
