Spring has finally sprung.
The days are getting longer and warmer, birds are chirping happy songs, buds are sprouting, and everything is once again turning GREEN!
This is such a special time of year! Soon we will be heading out to enjoy Mother Nature and all she provides us. What better time than Earth Day do we have to make evaluate and make sure we are doing all we can to make sure she is great for all the rest to come.
Earth Day is such a great time to get creative to reuse items that otherwise would end up in the trash. Like old Pop bottles being recycled into a floor pouf, or yarn from that sweater you never wear anymore that was going to go in the trash.
There are so many ways that we as crafters can help our environment by just using our creativity. That’s what inspired this month’s issue of Happily Hooked…

The Grab and Go Cozy By Janet Pippin
The grab & go cup cozy is my favorite. I’m constantly on the go and a great cup cozy is a must for my mornings.
It’s a great quick stash-busting pattern!
Hap the Mole By Sage Webster
Hap the Mole is my FAVORITE design from this April issue!
This little cutie is just so perfect and simple and fun – and I may have already made him. I think he should be the HHM mascot!
The Luna Blanket By Hailey Bailey
I just love the look of this one!
It is a simple pattern and screams for you to put your own creative twist on it. I can’t wait to make this one!
