I decided I needed a blog space to post my craft projects, knitting, zentangles, things I make for my niece Miss V, etc. The name of the blog - "a pinch, a potch, and a kiss" - is something my grandfather used to lovingly say to us grandkids and it brings back fond memories of childhood. He had a particular cadence to the phrase that I can still hear in my head and it always makes me smile.

Digital Me

I just finished updating my yahoo avatar.  It's still kind of boring, but I think it resembles me a little.  For some reason I just can't get into making an avatar that is complete fantasy.  Oh well, it was fun.

Scrabble tile pendants for Relay for Life fundraising

The past couple weeks I've been working on making scrabble tile pendants to sell to raise money for the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life.  Once again, I'll be joining my mom's team for the Bakersfield Relay and volunteering at the Survivor's tent.

Most of the pendants I've made are pink, specific to breast cancer awareness and are from artwork created by Ashley Marie Design (found on Etsy).  My mom suggested making one in purple (the main Relay color) and more generic. So here's what I created.

It's amazing that I was able to find everything I needed for this project on Etsy: scrabble tiles, bails, cords, resin bubbles.  I heart Etsy.
