I am so excited!

Today is the debut of “Off the Hook Mondays”, a link party co-hosted by myself and the lovely Lauren over at Daisy Cottage Designs.

I knew pretty quickly that Lauren and I could get along quite well after I read her bio and discovered all we have in common, between our faith, our husbands’ careers, and even the ages of our children (her two girls are the same age as my two boys!). You’ve probably seen quite a few of Lauren’s original designs if you’ve been in the crochet world for a while. She is the brains behind the incredibly popular Children’s Market Tote, and she’s just recently released a brand new adult-sized version:


I think my absolute favorite pattern from Lauren is her Fishbowl Hat. It’s so unique and just too adorable!


Here’s a little bit more about Lauren…

Lauren Brown DCD HeadshotLauren Brown is the girl behind the Daisy Cottage Designs blog and Etsy shop.  After graduating from college, Lauren taught third grade until she and her youth pastor husband had their first baby. Now a SAHM to two little girls, she enjoys crocheting, blogging, and doing projects with her kids. Connect with Lauren on FacebookPinterest, and Instagram.

Now I’m very excited to be partnering with her to host Off the Hook Mondays, a place where you can link up your latest DIY projects to share them with the crafting world. We’re not just talking crocheted items, we want to see your latest recipes and greatest craft projects. We’ll be picking our favorites each week so be sure to check back to see if you’ve been featured.

If you have, we’ll be sharing your project on our Facebook pages (we have over 16,000 fans) and pinning them to a special board on Pinterest. Hopefully that will mean some great exposure for your post!


Like any good link party, there are a few rules. We’ll keep it short and sweet and you’ll be linking up in no time.
  1. Please link to one of the hostesses – Daisy Cottage Designs or Little Monkeys Crochet. If you’re feeling especially cheerful, you could even link to both. You could also grab the button above.
  2. It would make us especially happy if you would follow us on at least one social media site. You can find the links at the top of the blog. Be sure to comment so we can follow you back!
  3. Visit at least one other link and leave a kind and encouraging comment. The point of these link parties is to support each other and meet blogging friends!
  4. Please link to your blog post and not your homepage. Also, please avoid linking to Facebook pages, Etsy shops, or giveaways.
We can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to! Link up your latest and greatest and then come back next week to see if you’ve been featured!
