         I know! I know!...The header photo gave me away! ^_^ It did for those of you that have been following my blog lately anyway!...But for those of you who haven't been following it, I'm talking about the bumblebee inspired scarf, gloves, and now...flower headband, that I've been crocheting lately! :-)
      Hubby took photos of the scarf and fingerless gloves/wrist warmers over the weekend, and I took a few photos of the headband I just finished. I'm hoping to have hubby take some better shots of it maybe later today. He's much better at taking pictures than I am. The 'cooking' thing though?...That's still my 'wheelhouse'!! LOL...Yep! Still trying to eat, little by little,....and I mean little by little!...all of the stuff he was inspired to cook over the weekend! ^_^ He was a cooking fool!!!
     Before I show you my crocheted bumblebee inspired stuff, let me share a couple of cute bumblebee inspired things I found on Etsy!...besides that cute drawing in the header photo I mean!...
         Look at this cute little baby dress by spinkie! It's made from a 100% cotton fabric print, so it'll be really comfortable. And it's so bright and cheery that it'll make everybody around your baby happy and in a good mood! :-]

          And look at this cute little sewing needle case by doodlebugquilts! :-) It makes you almost wanna drag your old Singer sewing machine out of the closet and blow the dust off of it so you can take it for another spin, doesn't it?!....Wait!...Maybe that's just me! ^_^
        This is the new headband I just finished. I was trying something new with this one. I put an edging on one side (two rows...one yellow, one black) so that it could be worn a little tighter on one side than the other. I also made it about an inch smaller around, so it wouldn't be quite as loose...for the smaller head people...NOT ME!! As I told you before, I'm officially a BIG HEAD!! LOL
         See!...You could wear the gray part next to your face, or the yellow!...I put it on Shequita both ways. I liked the yellow side. But, of course, I would! I'm all about some color! ^_^ ......I also put one of my vintage buttons in the center of the flower...
      I made this one just in time too! I needed to replace the headband I just sold from my shop. :-)
          This soft blue one was the 175th item sold at Wuglyees! :-] And therefore the buyer also won a free scarf of  her choice!...She chose this one...

         It's the matching one to the headband! :-) It's off to her in the mail today!

       I also got another photo from someone who received a headband. If I get permission to share it with you, I'll do that tomorrow...In the meantime, here's the photos hubby took, outside in the backyard, of my latest scarf and gloves...
         He said Tina was cold...*Teehee*...He didn't put her coat on her because you wouldn't have been able to see the top of the wrist warmers....What do you think?!...I almost put a flower on the back of them to make them more feminine, but it felt like it would have been over-kill......As if the black and yellow isn't over-kill enough!! LOL
       Okay...I'm already behind a day with my schedule, with having a long weekend this past weekend and all! Today I've got to get back to some balance! But first I have to help a friend prepare a talk she has to present on Thursday, I've got some personal studying to do for a Bible review we have this week, I've got to get started on another soft blue scarf and headband, and I've got some bills to pay!....See what I mean?!!
        And pouring rain is due this afternoon too! You know what that means!!...I've got to hurry and get as much done as I can before the 'Ache-Monster' shows up!!! ^_^ So..."Here I come, balance!"........Bye!!


You teeter totter, in the middle,
Lean a little, OOPS! You're off!
Now you know that you're not balanced,
and you hope the ground is soft.

It's not easy to achieve,
and once you have it, to maintain.
In almost every part of life
our balance is so hard to gain.

You have to balance your emotions,
how you eat, and how you spend.
And when you're balancing your checkbook,
try to keep a level grin.

Staying somewhere in the middle
takes a conscious, careful touch,
because it doesn't take a lot
to go from balanced to 'too much'!

So try to keep a balanced eye,
 a balanced plate, and balanced life.
Keep your feelings all in check,
and minimize the stress and strife.

And don't compare your sense of balance
 to your neighbor's...you're alone.
Because your neighbor's also trying
to get some balance of his own!


  1. Hi Debbie!I hope you had a great Christmas.I love the bumble bee things that little dress is adorable.Enjoy the rest of the week.

    Onward to the new year do you make resolutions???I never do,lol.Cute poem as well.

  2. Hi Becky, Nice to see you! And I love that little dress too!...About the resolutions thing...No, I don't. I don't even understand the concept of resolving to do something "just because" a new year is starting...O_0 If it needs doing...do it WHENEVER!...By the way, thanks for the nice words about the poem too! And you have a good rest of the week too!

  3. It looks like my comment disappeared! I love the new scarf, gloves and headband! Just gorgeous as usual! I hope you sell them right away!
    I'm glad she chose the blue scarf. I would have too.
    Hope you had a great day!

  4. CinLynn, Your comment disappeared?! O_0 You mean you commented earlier?!...The whole internet has been weird today. I think there must be a lot of people off work and online or something!...Anyway, thanks for the nice comment about the new items. I have to do the listing of them now...UGH! I spent the day working on the pink and white pillow...Yep, pillow. LOL I finally decided...kinda. And I started another soft blue scarf too. That one seems to be a favorite in the shop...How was your day?! I hope it was good. :-)

  5. lol poor Tina! Maybe she needs a wrap to go over her shoulders :D
    The wrist warmers and scarf goes really well together. They look great :)

  6. I LOVE the new scarf and gloves. Such great colors. Hope you had a wonderful holiday! I tried to get by and tell everyone Merry Christmas but I missed you somehow, darn it! So many blogs, so little time...

  7. Jo-anne, *Teehee*...You and hubby think alike about Tina. I think 'he' needed the coat more than she did! LOL...Thank you for the nice words about my bumblebee styled crafts too! :-]

  8. Pammy Sue, Thank you for the nice words about the scarf and gloves!! :-) And no worries about the Christmas greeting...I don't celebrate it anyway...I know, about the blogs too. But I enjoy reading them just the same. :-)

  9. Oh, wow, you have been busy!! I love those new things you've been creating - those colors are wonderful!! And it sounds like you've been doing well. I've sure missed visiting here and hope to get back into my routine (and balance) soon... Hugs, Silke
