Anyone else use their rings as stitch markers? I'm always losing my stitch markers left and right and my ring always saves the day 😀 . And thank you for all the love, thoughts and prayers about my dad. You guys are truly amazing. He's home and doing so much better ❤ . . . #valentine #valentinesday #bernat #yarnspirations #yarn #green #knot #knit #knitting #crafty #hobby #love #happy #handmade #happinessishandmade #maker #ourmakerlife

Early Saturday morning around 2am I was finally just getting ready for bed when my phone rang and it was my mom...it's never good to get a call that late from family. I answered and she said my dad wasn't feeling well...I asked her if he needs to go to the ER...she asked me if I could come over and check him out? I thought to myself , what could I possibly do at this time to make him better? I told her let to let dad rest and I'll be over in the morning, but something didn't sit well with me after I got off the phone with her so I told Michael to get the kids out of bed and we headed over to my parents house . When we got there, mom was already in tears with worry. Dad didn't look good and I told him, "Dad, let's go to the ER." He kept saying, no, that'll he will be ok. He said "I'll go in the morning." My response was "if we don't go now, I'm calling 911." After that, Michael was able to get him into a wheelchair and we got down the hallway and he started to say he was already feeling a lot better and please let him wait til tomorrow. I held no hesitation back when I told him, "Dad, you might not wake up tomorrow." I know it sounds harsh but it actually was the truth. When we got him to the ER, we found out he was having a HEART ATTACK! . I was calm, I really wasn't expecting it to be that even though I had a little feeling it could be I was hoping it was a bad case of food poisoning... A few hours later and after a stent placement Dad is feeling much better and he should be able to come home tomorrow ❤ . The doctors and nurses said he was really lucky because if he didn't come when he did he wouldn't have survived...that was when it really hit me! . My dad has always been a stubborn man, but he is strong...excuse me for the novel but I felt the story appropriate to share with this #weeklylettering

Everything was going so well yesterday but I let one incident at work get to me 😔. But today is a new day and I'm gonna make it a better one 😀 . . . I designed yet another basketweave beanie 😃 So far I'd say this one is my favorite! Made especially for my best friend @roseofca! Now do you think this beanie is knit or crochet? . #crochet #knit #crocheter #knitter #crocheting #knitting #handmade #happinessishandmade #beanie #purple #slouchy #pretty #maker #ourmakerlife #make #create #love #yarn #redheartyarn

A few hours after I posted this, I learned that a sweet friend of mine has returned to live with our Father in Heaven. This person defines kindness. She was the most beautiful, kind, loving human being I've met and I am truly a better person for just having known her. Although she will be missed, she lives on in my heart. I love you friend ❤ Week 4 of #weeklylettering ❤ . . . #handlettering #handlettered #quote #writing #lettering #kind #kindness #love #world #world #galaxytab #samsung #spen #pretty #happy #happiness #live #life #sunday

6 skeins of @redheartyarns ombre and 5 months later I finished my largest project yet! My husband said he didn't realize how big it was until he was helping me fold it 😄...@kimmiedinh thanks for contacting me to make this for you and the photos...I wasn't able to get a picture of the finished blanket myself. But the last picture was when it was about 95% done. It gives you an idea of how big it is 😊 . . . #crochet #crocheting #yarn #redheartyarn #ombre #teal #torquoise #blue #hooked #happy #handmade #happinessishandmade #love #happiness #create #make #ourmakerlife #maker #cute #pretty #beautiful #home

Quote : Dr. Seuss ❤ . Photo : Pine Valley, Utah . This quote describes how I feel about our trip to St. George this past November. On our last day, my sister in law and her husband took us to Pine Valley . It was so beautiful there.

A few months ago I finished this set for a friend and our youngest got to the cowl and cut a hole smack in the middle of it! I couldn't fix it so I made another one and finally got it delivered to its owner today 😊 swipe to see Lilly modeling it ❤ .

I wish I could have gotten a better picture of this before I sent it off to its new owner...the sparkle 😍 so pretty! These beanies were inspired by the CC knit beanies I've seen around! .

This purple is so pretty! And the best part of this beanie is if you don't want to commit to the pom pom you don't have to! If you want the pom on just weave in through the top and tie it in a bow, EASY! 😊 Swipe to see more photos! . .

Weekly lettering quote...This one comes from one of my favorite songs..."Simple Man" ❤ as much as I love the original by Lynyrd Skynyrd my favorite is the cover by Deftones 😊...it's a beautiful song. Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! . P.S. can anyone tell what game hubby is playing in the background 😄 . . #happiness #happy #quote #postive #lettering #lefthandletterer #lefthand #simpleman #deftones #lynyrdskynyrd #music #notes #lyrics #songs #sunday #maker #create #weeklylettering

If you saw my recent stories on Instagram you probably already know I visited @joann_stores and left with a bunch of goodies! Some of those goodies included some faux fur...and I made my very first fur pom pom with it! I'm going to make all my fur pom poms as a removable option because sometimes we throw our beanies in the wash and these won't fair well in the wash. How do you feel about fur poms? . . . #crochet #knit #beanie #maker #ourmakerlife #beanie #pompom #fauxfur #succulents #yarn #lionbrand #lionbrandyarn #cute #fluffy #handmade #knitter #knitting #crocheter #crocheting #itssofluffyimgonnadie

Something else I'd like to do this year is to share a weekly handlettered quote once a week ❤...not only will this help me practice my lettering but I believe it will help me stay positive and happy...and hopefully some of you too 😊 . . . #weeklylettering #lefthandletterer #leftyletters #brushlettering #maker #quote #family #happiness #love #happy #letters #letterer #handlettered #moderncalligraphy #saturday

One of my goals this year is to plan better! I've bought multiple planners last year and barely wrote in them! I found this Hearth & Hand with Magnolia planner @target and love, love, LOVE it! The design and layout is simple yet beautiful! I'm planning on using the heck of it this year 😄 . .

I'm running out of this beautiful yarn from Hobby Lobby! I always buy at least 2 skeins of the same color but my yarn cubby is so disorganized I have no idea where the other skein is 😩 guess I know what I'm doing this weekend 😅 . What do you guys think of this design so far? . . #crochet #crocheting #crocheter #knit #knitter #knitting #yarn #green #blue #maker #ourmakerlife #handmade #hobbylobby #beanie #slouchie #hat

Happy New Year from this crazy bunch of Riggins...2017 had its fair share of ups and downs and 2018 has already started of a bit rough for me but this year I think I'm gonna take some time to focus more on ways to strengthen myself as a wife, mother, friend, maker and individual...Happy New Year friends!

Wanted to share this photo (permission given) of this sweet little family in the beanies I made them! She said they arrived just in time for some snow fall in their hometown 😊! Aren't they just so cute!?!
