in the splendor of the summertime

June and July have been fun! I have been able to crochet a lot and also work on some other crafty goodness. I found inspiration in this painted rock tutorial that I saw online on Saturday. On Sunday, I drew a geometric design on a rock and then painted in the colors using paint pens. I think the result is great! Yesterday, I finished crocheting a jellyfish stuffed toy for a friend of mine. If you would like to buy a crocheted jellyfish or another item from my shop, please visit my Etsy shop, GreenOwlCrochet. I also accept commissions. Thank you!


This is the painted stone I made on Sunday.

I was not very creative as a kiddo. However, I found this painting I made as a child. I was probably six years old when I made this painting. Sweet!

cute llama magnet

A few weeks ago, I went to a bargain store called Five Below to hunt for some treasures. I bought a few gifts for my neighbor's child, since I know she loves to do arts and crafts. I also bought some things for myself. Among my haul was a ceramic llama magnet painting kit. The kit was only one dollar. Despite its low price, it provided me with much joy. I was having a restless time before bedtime one night. I decided to try painting the llama magnet, just for fun. Although it only took me a few minutes to paint the llama, I'm so glad I did! I also used a black permanent marker to add the eyes and mouth. I used gloss Mod Podge to seal the paint. Okay, readers, I love the way this llama magnet came out! If you are so inclined, please tell me what you last bought to make yourself happy. I'd love to hear about it in the comments below. If you would like to support me and my work, please consider ordering something from my Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. I also accept commissions. Thank you!

January update

Hello, all! I have been having a rough time with my fatigue, pain, and sadness. In November and December, I was able to crochet a lot of tree ornaments. As I stated before, these tree ornaments are for an upcoming yarn bomb. Also, in the past few months, I have been able to make art, and write a bit of poetry and such. I am happy to share some of my work with you all. Please don't forget to check out my Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. I also accept crochet commissions. I hope you all are having a lovely winter!

November happenings!

Hello, dear readers! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy. I have been working on crocheting more tree ornaments. I crochet covers (aka, "cozies") for pre-made plastic bases I buy online. I am planning on hanging the ornaments somewhere in our yard at some point in December. Last year, I did a similar installation called Holiday Cheer 2020. In fact, I may incorporate the same tree ornaments I used last year, along with the new ones I am making. I have also been making some collages and writing a bunch of poetry. I will, of course, share some more poetry eventually. Ciao!

First Love (poem)

First Love


we view the bright afternoon sky together

in the barren winter field outside of town

darling shades of blue swirl in patterns novel and lovely

Happy Fall!

I hope this blog post finds you all doing well. I have been struggling with my pain and fatigue, as always. I injured my wrist last week and have not been able to crochet for a few days. What a bummer! On the plus side, I have been able to make a few collages and write a bit. I have been enjoying the cooler weather. I love to sleep with my window open. I hope you all are doing well!

Thank you for visiting my blog! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. I am having a rough day due to my pain, fatigue, and PTSD. I was, however, able to sit outside for a bit and make a collage. I have also been working on crocheting items for Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. If you would like to support me and my work, please consider buying something from Green Owl Crochet or commission me to crochet something fabulous for you or a loved one. Ciao!
