How to Crochet: Quick and Easy Fingerless Gloves

How to Crochet: Quick and Easy Fingerless Gloves

The first super cold morning hit us last week sometime and after freezing my fingers off in the wee hours while on my morning wake up walk, I decided I needed fingerless gloves. I needed them and I needed a pattern that would be quick and easy to crochet up. Of course I turned to YouTube to find fingerless gloves – crocheted – and happened upon a great pattern that was easy to learn and quick, too. I’m going to share that video below, but you should know, … Read more…


Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday, Daddy!

Happy Birthday, Daddy. Today is my Dad’s birthday. If he were still here on earth, I imagine we’d be celebrating in some fabulous style. I am honoring him today by putting it out there, maybe he subscribes to the blog from way up there. Happy Birthday, Daddy. When you are young, you don’t think about your parents not being around forever. I certainly didn’t think I’d lose both my parents before I turned 30. As I reflect on the last 20+ years (since my father has passed), I … Read more…


Fall: Just a Few of My Favorite Fall Things…

Fall: Just a Few of My Favorite Fall Things…

Fall is probably my favorite Season of the whole year. Spring runs a close second, with Summer and then Winter bringing up the rear. I love Fall. For so many reasons. And I was working on a pretty perfect post about Halloween-y things, but shelved that (for later in the week) to come tell you why Fall is my (probably) favorite Season of the year. Related: 24+ Homemade Halloween Costumes… I love Fall. And if you speak to most of us up here in the North, I think … Read more…


24+ Homemade Halloween Costumes – a Pinterest Roundup!

24+ Homemade Halloween Costumes – a Pinterest Roundup!

Are you ready for Halloween? Do you need homemade Halloween costumes ideas? I remember growing up and having parents who refused to spend money on Halloween costumes. I was a cat one year (black leotard and face paint) and a pumpkin one time…not super original, but we’re going back 30+ years – Halloween just wasn’t the thing it has become. Or maybe it was and I just never knew it. Either way? Homemade Halloween costumes are fun to put together and often way better than anything you could … Read more…


Assuming the Worst – Life Lesson #111

Assuming the Worst – Life Lesson #111

Assuming the worst seems to be such a worthless endeavor, though we all do it, sometimes. Well. Fine. I won’t speak for all of us. But assuming on anyone or any one thing does happen. And it’s worthless. We haven’t had a life lesson in some time here on Informed Sharing. And while the title for this post was not originally a life lesson (more of a “this is what happened this summer”), I figured we could all use a good life lesson and assuming the worst (or … Read more…
