Although one can incorporate those two fashion pieces tastefully into a modern boho outfit, things have come a long way in modern times! Yes, we draw inspiration from the early era of the flower child and beatnik, as those fashion concepts from the 1960s have inspired the modern spin on today’s boho-fashion trends, today we have added a new flair to this look.

Crochet has long been a part of the boho scene. My Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf takes this old idea and brings it to new life! Arrows and Fringe are all the rage in this latest fashion arena and I have them both in this one fabulous piece! You can make this scarf very easily, just in time for the cold days ahead. It will stop people in their tracks with the bold and beautiful look that this scarf flaunts!

I used the delicious Chic Sheep Yarn by The Marly Bird! As part of her Designer Blog Tour, I jumped at the chance to use more of this amazing Merino wool fiber. I know what you are thinking. “Red Heart Yarns cannot simply have a desirable wool yarn that is soft and worthy of high end pieces”. STOP.RIGHT.THERE. Back ‘er up! Erase those thoughts immediately! Haha! I am here to tell you that you cannot go wrong with this luxurious fiber! It is drool worthy! Don’t take my word for it?? Order a skein on redheart.com or go over to your nearest Hobby Lobby stores and go feel for yourself! You won’t believe the magic at your fingertips! Come on, do it! We all know you like to squeeze that yarn! (Confession: My name is Nadia and I am a yarn squeezer. There, I admit it! That wasn’t so hard.)

 

Chic Sheep Yarn has fast become a favorite go-to for some of my nicer fashion pieces for myself and for the home! I used this in my Colorful Visions Afghan and trust me, there is not another piece that has equaled the amount of swooning that my friends and family have done as they have on this afghan! It is one of those blankets so comfy, you want to curl underneath and momentarily forget the world…in fact I might have done that a time or two…or three. I also made the Winter Chic Slippers with this yarn, and let me tell you, those are some of the most comfortable slippers I have ever worn!

I had the joy of meeting Marly Bird at Stitches Midwest, and it truly was a highlight of that weekend. Finally meeting her and getting to know her has been such a thrill. I can tell you that she puts so much love and enthusiasm into everything she does that her brand is no exception. Her color choices are eye-popping, the softness is fantastic, and her product is comparable to other brands that can run three times the price!

So now that you are convinced, go grab your Chic Sheep Yarn today and join me on making the Arrows and Fringe Boho Fashion Scarf!

Nadia Goes on a Yarn Hop

Nadia Goes on a Yarn Hop

With my move to a new city, much of my free time is spent exploring my new home. Nate has lived here for almost 10 years and as familiar as he is with this area, there are a lot of places in our city that I have discovered that he wasn’t aware even existed! One of the first places I wanted to scout out was the area yarn shops. Because it would be a travesty if my husband didn’t know where the yarn is!

You may recall in previous blogs how much I enjoy the quaintness and feel of a local yarn store. I love to support small businesses, and I will do my best to try to frequent them as often as I can. Fortunately for me, my city has a few in and around the area! Insert a visual of wide-eyed Nadia looking like a kid in a candy store each time she enters one of these shops running around squeezing all the yarn balls!

Last week, I popped into one of the local shops, Unwound Artisan Yarn Shop here in La Crosse, WI and found out they were having a Yarn Loop! Squeeee! How did they know I needed that in my life right now? What it entailed was a 200 mile route through three states, hopping from yarn shop to yarn shop along the route. Six shops in total were part of this event! You have no idea that I could hardly sleep the night before!! I was THAT excited.

The first thing I did when I found out there was a Yarn Loop was call my mom. Who better to join me on this adventure than my crafty partner in crime?? I was hoping she would be able to come the night before to have a pre-yarn-hop slumber party where we would stay up all night and plot out our plan and get an early start, but she was so busy she couldn’t make it until early that morning. She had over a two hour drive to get to my house, and of course I insisted we be ready to go by 8am. Even though the shops didn’t open til 9!

She was at my house by 8am the morning of the yarn hop and by 9 we were walking into the first shop! Our first stop was Unwound located right in Downtown La Crosse. I love their shop and how welcoming the staff is! The minute you walk in is a burst of warmth and color. Here we were given our “passport” to have stamped at each of the shops participating. Each shop was giving away some door prize swag, there were great deals and sales on yarn, and some had additional prizes and giveaways. Unwound had a nifty needle measure as their giveaway. I also scored some great purchases. I bought some wonderful yarn by Abacus Dyeworks. Along with fabulous fibers, I found some patches to add to my yarn bag. All in all it was a great start, despite the fact that as soon as we stepped out of the shop it was a torrential downpour! Meh, no rainstorm would dampen my spirit when 5 more shops await!

Check out their Instagram here!!

Next was Fitting Knit Shop, another store in downtown La Crosse. We arrived and had our passport stamped first thing. They were giving away free knitting patterns and I grabbed a couple skeins of Bamtastic Bamboo Yarn. I plan on trying my hand at knitting to see how I do. One really special point about this stop was the history of this little yarn store! It was established in 1946! They are still in business today. What a remarkable claim to be able to make! In the days of internet, it is pretty cool to see a business like this survive through so many decades.

We were quickly on our way to Viroqua, WI to Ewetopia Fiber Shop. I love this shop! With wall to wall fiber and lots of fun products that go beyond the yarn, I felt my excitement rising! What made Ewetopia stand out was the fact that they farm their own woolly animals that provide them their own AMAZING yarn! You all know me, I had to try THAT yarn! I purchased their own yarn which was 100% Blue Faced Leicester Wool. How incredible to have a sustainable farm to provide your own wool and fibers to their customers as well as stocking additional fabulous fibers! The staff at the shop was so endearing and wonderful. I had my passport stamped and I met some friends along the way! They gave out stitch markers for free, and of course I had to purchase some of the other fun items they had in their shop! I can’t wait to go back!

My mom and I were now off to Decorah, Iowa to our fourth stop of the day. By this time it was closing in on lunch, but we decided to wait until we arrived in Decorah, made our stop at the yarn shop Blue Heron Knittery, before stopping for lunch. Oh. My. Gosh! What a wonderful city Decorah is! This was my very first time visiting and right away we noticed the strong Scandinavian heritage of the area! It was wonderful. What was even more delightful is the yarn store had a wonderful selection of yarns that were specific to Norway and Denmark. We marked our passports to make note that we found our way to the fourth place on our route. I picked up some Kauni 100% wool and some Rauma Finullgarn. The shop had some fun swag giveaways and I walked away with a cute notepad with sticky notes and a pen.  A cute stash bag also caught my eye and I had to have it!

Follow Blue Heron Knittery on Facebook

By now we were starving and the Blue Heron Knittery shop staff recommended us to Ede’s Angry Pickle! Yes you read that right! It is a little sandwich shop right across the street a bit from the yarn shop. You can follow them on Facebook here! What a delightful diner! We had artisan sandwiches with fresh lemonade and it hit the spot! We even left a little bit of art behind to commemorate the day! My mom drew Pickle Art for the wall inside the diner which was filled with the art of past patrons.


By 3pm, we were on our last leg of the trip headed towards Minnesota. A little tired from all the day’s activity, we were determined to finish the yarn hop. The next stop was Just Stitch It Meisch Upholstery in Caledonia, Minnesota. As soon as we walked in the door, we were greeted by wonderful staff in a small shop inside what looks like a home. It was a combined fabric and fiber shop that was very cozy! They handed us wonderful pouches of swag as a sweet giveaway and had us register for a special giveaway of a bag, magazine and ball of yarn. A few days after the Yarn Loop was over, I received a phone call from this shop that I won their giveaway! They had some wonderful yarn selections and I was able to purchase their pattern selection they had featured which used Schoppel yarns. We wrapped up our visit and were on our way to the LAST stop of the day!

Follow Just Stitch It on Facebook

Winona, Minnesota was the next city on the map for our fabulous Yarn Loop Day. Yarnology was the last shop and last stop for us! And what a way to end the day!!!!! Yarnology was packed full of fun and fabulous products! I scored myself some Universal Yarns Bamboo Bloom Handpaints in the color Kanji and the swag they gave away was AWESOME!! They handed us gift bags upon arrival filled with lots of fun do-dads! One big highlight of the day was meeting Lisa who is the owner of Abacus Dyeworks! Remember, I bought that yarn from Unwound Artisan Yarn Shop from our first stop?! How awesome was it to meet the dyer of the yarn I purchased earlier in the day!! I also discovered the product SOAK Wash! You can learn more about SOAK and how awesome it is by following them on Facebook here! I absolutely loved this store, the atmosphere, the staff…the list goes on. It was THE PERFECT way to end this hop.

My mom and I had such a great adventure as we always do, and a yarn hop was the best way to spend a Friday. We met so many friendly and welcoming people. We enjoyed driving through the countryside, and when the rain cleared, the scenery was breathtaking. We found new places to go back to and explore. A special thank you to all of the participants in this 1st annual Driftless Loop Yarn Shop Hop! It was a blast! And I found out Yarn Hopping is as fun as it is exhausting! Until next year everybody! Share your yarn hop adventures in the comment section! I would love to hear from you!

Crochet Tutorial: Autumn Nights Cardigan

Crochet Tutorial: Autumn Nights Cardigan

As summer is at it’s peak, it’s hard to imagine that in less than two months the weather will be quite different here in Wisconsin. I love the four seasons, but I am much more of a warm weather girl than one who embraces the cold. For that reason, I try to be prepared for the cold weather by having the warmest wardrobe ready!

Not much will be warmer than the Autumn Nights Chunky Cardi! This lush sweater will blanket you from the cold. It is about as cozy of a sweater that will ever find. The most wonderful part? You can make it yourself!

Using Red Heart Yarn Grande, I was able to design and make this project in less than one day. You can too! Here are my easy to follow instructions for this chunky cardigan along with the video tutorial on how to make one for yourself. Don’t get caught in the cold weather this fall and winter and make yours now!

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this cardigan:

Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Style Baby Bonnet

Crochet Tutorial: Vintage Style Baby Bonnet

I love to create matching layette sets when designing items for babies. I love the idea of a cute dress with matching accessories. Today, I have the second installment for the Happy Hearts Baby Dress. I designed a Vintage Style Baby Bonnet.

This sweet baby hat has similar ruffle detail as seen on the cap sleeves of the Happy Hearts Baby Dress. Using similar colors with this matching detail, this tiny bonnet is the perfect pairing for this sweet outfit.

With more pieces to come, this is the perfect set to start now and add to as the pieces become available! This will make a wonderful gift!

Crochet Tutorial: Pom Poms and Pineapples Poncho

Crochet Tutorial: Pom Poms and Pineapples Poncho

June marks the official start of the summer season here in the northern hemisphere. It is the month when I get geared up to create a lot of fun-in-the-sun crochet patterns that are perfect for this time of year. Here is a pattern to launch that collection of great summer designs!

My Pom Poms and Pineapples Beach Poncho will have you feeling ALL KINDS of SUMMER VIBES! Seriously, this is one of the most delightful fashion pieces I have ever designed!! With a plethora of stitches, this creative piece will make the perfect swimsuit cover-up!! Picture yourself at the pool or sinking your feet in the sandy beach, sporting this adorable cover-up over your fun and sassy swimwear!! This is the picture-perfect piece to wear anytime all season long!

Made with Scrubby Smoothie Cotton by Red Heart Yarns, this project will be a sure-fire hit as you head to the water! Go from sea, sun, and sand by day, pairing this over your swimsuit, and wear it into the evening with a cute summer sundress or tank-top and capris for those summer nights! You can’t go wrong with this fabulous poncho no matter which way you wear it! I LOVE mine and you will too!

This is one pattern you won’t want to miss!!! A fun tip: add a few tacking stitches under the arms to create sleeves and turn this awesome poncho into a cute summer top! Now, go grab your hooks, your fave cotton yarn (here is my latest obsession) and let’s get started! The sooner you begin, the quicker you can head to the beach! See you there! Be sure to post your photos of this wonderful project and hashtag #YARNutopia! I can’t wait to see those beach pictures!

Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hearts Baby Dress

Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hearts Baby Dress

It has been quite a while, but I finally completed my latest infant fashion piece! My Happy Hearts Baby Dress is a lovely one piece cotton frock made with Red Heart Yarns Scrubby Smoothie.

This lovely dress has tiny popcorn stitch detail on the skirt creating two stacked hearts. The simple ruffle creates a cap sleeve on the bodice. I added a tiny ribbon accent to complete the piece. Each detail was carefully thought out to create this wonderful project.

Easy enough for all stages of crocheters, this infant attire will be a hit for everyone!! As a crochet artist you will love the simplicity of this design while making it, and the final product is sure to WOW the masses! Andddd, I can guarantee that any little baby will look adorable in this frock

Below is a view of the back of the dress.

Crochet Tutorial: Pommin’ Around Cowl

Crochet Tutorial: Pommin’ Around Cowl

Although winter will officially end next month, Wisconsin weather is very temperamental. We see snow even as late as May. As I plan out my future projects, I decided to add a quick cowl to the mix. This Pommin’ Around Cowl is an easy repeat pattern using Grit Stitch. The pom detail on the one border adds a touch of fun and whimsy to this simple design. Perfect for the beginner to advanced crocheter!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.

Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

Crochet Tutorial: Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens

I am making the best out of these frigid temps this week as I finish yet another weather inspired pattern. With temperature well below zero and brutal wind chills, it is no wonder that my mind is always thinking of ways to stay as snug and cozy as I possibly can! Nadia’s Wonderfully Warm Mittens are my latest creation to come off my hook!

These cozy mitts are fantastic and definitely doing their job keeping my digits nice and toasty! Frigid air, don’t care, I got me a pair! Ok, that was silly, but these mittens are not! Using Red Heart Evermore Chunky Yarn, this pair works up fast and easy! I have noted how to make these a bit bigger if you want more room! Handmade mittens are inspired by days gone by when most of the winter worn items were homespun yet these will always stand the test of time. My Wonderfully Warm Mittens are functional and very stylish today and for generations to come! Make yourself a pair! These also make a great gift!

My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.

Crochet Tutorial: Houndstooth Stocking Hat

Crochet Tutorial: Houndstooth Stocking Hat

Who doesn’t love the drama of a great hat? It is the finishing touch to an outfit. The proverbial “cherry on top.” Each hat we wear makes a statement. Why not make that statement with a fun Houndstooth Stocking Hat this year? Picture everyone in their holiday pajamas and each head capped with one of these great pieces! I see next year’s Christmas card just waiting to be made with that scene in mind! A comfy cap that is sure to please everyone. Warm, fun, whimsical, and perfect for the whole family! This hat is a “Done in a Day” easy project. Add a yarn or faux fur pom to complete this look!!

Watch this video tutorial to learn how to make this hat:

Now that Halloween is here, I have compiled all the patterns in one place! Each piece to the costumes are here for you to create.

Each photo is listed with the link to the coinciding blog.

Follow all the patterns to make your own Link and Zelda by clicking the photos or the links above the photos!

If you choose to not make the costumes, you will still find a collection of great patterns below to modify for personal use.

Link

 

 

Link to the Past Hat

The Link to the Past Hat is a great stocking cap for cold weather, holidays, or cosplay costumes. Follow this link to make your hat.

 

 

Elf Ears

Elfin Ears are a must in the Link and Zelda Costume! They can also work for many other fun costume ideas!! This fun and easy pattern is the perfect detail to give your outfits a fantasy look!!

 

 

Chain Link Tunic

The Chain Link Tunic is the lining under Link’s main Pullover. This tunic is not only a great detail in this costume, you can modify this to be a swimsuit cover-up or as a mesh top over a dress. Lots of versatility with this piece!

 

 

Fingerless Gloves

Link’s Fingerless Gloves were made from my Harry Potter gloves you can find here. By changing the colors and adding a few more rows, they worked perfectly for this costume! Change them up to match your winter gear and make your own!

 

 

Link to the Past Pullover Vest

Link to the Past Pullover Vest is the green shirt Link wears over the Chain Link Tunic. This is the main part of the costume for your Link Character. Don’t need a costume? Use this pattern and make it into a Baha Hoodie, Vest, or Poncho!

 

Aside from these patterns I created to complete the Link costume, there were additional pieces I created or used to finish the entire ensemble.

 

For Link, I found the perfect wig on Amazon and you can find it here. It worked out perfectly and honestly transformed Nate into Link (or Justin Bieber depending on who you ask! LOL!!)

 

For the sashes, I just chained an amount that was long enough to fit around Nate, then I double crocheted across, chained up 3, and double crocheted across for a second row. Then I fastened off and sewed it together. I did this for both the belt and the shoulder sash.

 

I just had Nate pick up the grey turtleneck and khaki pants at a thrift store. For less than $10.00 it was his contribution to this costume. Now he has a shirt for work and a pair of khaki pants he can wear again! It’s a win/win!!

 


For the leg warmers I modified this boot cuff pattern and made them longer. See the video tutorial for these boot cuffs to make the leg warmers longer.

 

The boots were an old pair we had on hand.

 

I did pin the Elf Ears on the hat with safety pins and used pins to also secure the sash in place.

 

I used cardboard, grey acrylic craft paint, and felt for the sword.

Zelda

 

 

Destiny Headband

Zelda’s Head piece can be found here. This can be used for any princess outfit and can be modified as a crown or even a fashion piece. Change the colors and make it your own!

The Fairy Tunic

The Fairy Tunic was the last piece I made. Unfortunately, I made this slightly larger than I needed, but it worked perfectly to fit over my Zelda “dress” that I found at a thrift store. Since I dress modestly, I also wore a long sleeve white shirt, so having made it a tad bigger worked in my favor since I had to wear it over everything.

 

 

Princess Shoulder Armor

The Princess Shoulder Armour can be found in this blog. I crocheted around wire in this tutorial and it is a great demonstration on how easy it is to make your crochet pieces mold-able allowing you to shape your design. One tip: beware of tiny wire poking out. Watch those ends or you might get poked with a wire! OUCH!

 

 

Elf Ears

Once again, The Elf Ears are a must in the Link and Zelda Costume! They can also work for many other fun costume ideas!! This fun and easy pattern is the perfect detail to give your outfits a fantasy look!!

 

 

Princess Costume Gloves

Princess Costume Gloves are another fun detail to complete this costume. I add detail to give some fun authenticity, but these can be modified for any costume or make them for your personal use by changing the color and adding other embellishments!

Aside from these patterns I created to complete the Zelda costume, there were additional pieces I created or used to finish the entire ensemble.

 

I wrapped my hair in white yarn strands. As I studied the Zelda character, I found in most sketches, she had two lengths of hair wrapped in the front. I emulated this as best as I could as I typically cover my hair. This was the best way to accomplish that.

 

Zelda’s skirt was a second hand wedding dress I found at the thrift store for $8.99. It had some jewel design on the bodice so I tried to work it to my advantage. I used grey acrylic craft paint to draw a similar design along the bottom of the dress which I found in most of the cosplay drawings I studied while trying to create this costume.

I wore a white long sleeve shirt underneath my dress and top as a personal choice. Most costumes I studied, had NO sleeves, but it works both ways.

 

I used cardboard and felt to create her dress panel that hangs down the front. I attached it to a hanging embellishment – The Destiny Headband. I used safety pins to secure it to the inside of the tunic I wore.

 

I wore grey boots as I noticed that Zelda often wears combat boots in the video game.

Final Thoughts

When Nate and I were deciding on costume ideas, I found this cosplay ensemble to be most challenging project yet. Nate is a gamer; I am not. I struggled to give these costumes authenticity as I was learning as I go. I hope I gave these characters the homage and respect they deserve. I had so much fun in the creative process and getting caught up in learning about this video game added to the thrill. I really hope it makes you as happy as it made us to dress up and wear these wonderful costumes. It was worth every moment to make them. We won BEST IN SHOW in our annual family Halloween costume contest, and we were awarded the Golden Pumpkin! We also won second place in a community costume contest and won a $50 gift certificate! It has been such a fun journey! Thanks for coming along with us!

Crochet Tutorial: Fairy Tunic

Crochet Tutorial: Fairy Tunic

My very last installment in the Link and Zelda costumes is The Fairy Tunic. I spent each night well past midnight the week before Halloween, trying to finish and achieve some level of authenticity to these costumes. I made this tunic a bit larger than my frame as it had to fit over the dress I had purchased at a thrift store. It can easily be altered by adding corset ties down the back to help cinch it in a bit.

Follow along with this video tutorial to learn how to make this shirt:

My New Craft Room

My New Craft Room

When Nate and I bought our house this past July, one of the bedrooms was in pretty rough shape. It had a behemoth wall cabinet built around a bed that fit into the center. I remember Nate’s dad remarking that it looked like the drawers in a wall at a morgue, and my first thought was this thing had to go!

Behind the bed was exposed wall and mortar. We even discovered a small hole where we could see light from outside! We found little critter poo in the area behind where the previous owner had their bed. I had total heebie-jeebies following that discovery! The first step was to ensure that there were no openings to the outside where critters can enter, so my dad filled the cracks and holes both inside and out. That went a LONG way to giving me peace of mind!

Where to start?

The room was poorly painted in a funky celery green color that was dirtied with age, with patches of the former paint peeking through. Our first inclination was to tear everything out and gut that insanely HUGE cabinet. After careful consideration, we decided to repair everything, repaint the room a soft gray with white accents, and try to work with the massive shelving (that was actually very well constructed). The previous owner had built the cabinet by hand out of solid oak, so the quality and construction was excellent. We all felt it would be a shame to completely destroy it. But what to do??!

The idea of facing this DIY project was a bit daunting, yet, when we started to disassemble and remove the drawers my mom came up with the idea of using this as a yarn storage wall! That had me shifting into 5th gear with an excited, “YES, PLEASE!” So, Nate, myself, my mom, and dad reinvented this wall unit into a yarn storage and turned the bedroom into my new studio/craft-room! It’s a night and day difference, and I couldn’t be happier with the results!

 

 

A little hard work never hurt anyone. It can however make me scream.

We started with the carpets. We rented a Rug Doctor and shampooed the carpets several times over. Once the floors dried, my dad removed the remaining drawers and hardware, leaving empty openings in their place. He measured and cut the wood for each “shelf” that needed a bottom. Then, we inserted each shelf into its cubicle and secured them with nails. We had 23 to reconstruct. I left two of the bottom drawers intact for notions, crochet hooks, and other supplies.

We decided then to paint the room. Since this room eventually will be my filming studio, I could only choose from white, cream, or gray paint so the lighting didn’t cast a strange color on my videos. So, I chose the soft gray with white trim. What should have been a simple paint job, was a disaster. One, we had to wash years of grime off the existing walls. Two, it took more than 3 coats of the light gray to cover the green color beneath. Three, I stepped off the ladder and the can of gray paint tipped over spilling and splashing paint EVERYWHERE all over the carpet! I screamed!! What a mess to clean up!! It took two full days to finish painting this small room. I still have a bit of trim to fix, paint, and replace, but overall it looks 100 times better than it did!

The Fun Part

Now the task of filling those compartments of my wall unit was next. My mom and I unpacked boxes upon boxes of yarn and began organizing them into colors. That took hours and hours! I think I went up and down the step ladder a hundred times that day. My legs were burning by the end! But what a difference it made! It transformed from being this massive thing with cold, empty caverns, into a wonderful warm, colorful work of art (haha!). My excitement just grew by leaps and bounds!

My dad and Nate repaired the back wall and constructed the table where I will be filming. They custom built the table for me to work and do my tutorials. They also added lighting fixtures to illuminate my work area. Once that was complete, my mom and I began to add personal touches to the room. The first thing to be hung on the wall was my Silver Play Button I was awarded from YouTube for surpassing 100,000 subscribers. One of the last pieces to be done was changing the ceiling fan into a hanging light fixture. We also accented with a black room darkening curtain so we can eliminate light coming through the window while filming. Soon the room began to truly come to life.

 

 

Finishing touches

Over the course of the past few weeks, I added a big comfy chair and additional artwork to the room. Most of the items are second hand or gifts that add to that personal charm to make this space my own. It is one of the coziest and happiest places in our new home. It is the perfect place for me to spend most of my time!

I am still transitioning between homes as I still live with my parents until our wedding. In 5 months, I will be getting married and will be moving ALL my yarn to our home permanently and those shelves will be full! YARNutopia will have a new home with a new beginning! I am excited to make these changes not just in my personal life, but in the life of our online community! Lots of exciting things to come and I am so happy to share this journey with all of you!

We still have to add some finishing touches. I will be keep you updated on more changes to come as well as posting about the day we film our first tutorial in my NEW studio!! Thank you for joining me and sharing this adventure!
