hoho love.

 If you can't tell, I'm trying desperately to get my blogging groove back.  This past spring was just tough, (time wise) preceded by a very tough winter (health and heart wise).  The result was a slow descent into blogging blah!  But I'm working hard to get that back, to keep you (if you are still out there?) updated on life, thinking of some new ideas and hoping for divine inspiration. 

I very often forget that here and Instagram are two different places, with two circles of people (thought probably very overlapped).  So some of the new in the world of hohos may be new to you here!

Above is a sweet little wooden bowl I refinished with a little hoho love!  They won't be a regular feature but was a fun breath of fresh air.  I very often think "could I add a hoho to that?" and sometimes the answer is YES!  I'm thankful for a wonderful group of hoho supporters, who encourage me with their words (and purchases too!).  Maybe I'll work on a "how I got here post". 

Below you will find a few more examples of hohos that are available, the "about the hohos" tab at the top will give you all the info you need about sizes, etc and how to order!  Currently the waiting list runs about a month or so!

And if you are still here, will you take a second and tell me where you came from?  How long you've been reading?  What you'd like to see (again)? 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

crystal, i just love reading your blog and i have been around here reading for a few years. i love seeing pics of your little sweet boy. he reminds me of my youngest son when he was that age. same hair, same sweet smile. it brings me back to when he was that small. he's only 10 1/2 but, a lot sure changes in such a short amount of time. i always love seeing how you try to make such good memories for your children! i too, had a rough childhood (different than yours) and you are always inspiring to me to do more for my own kids. we are going through such a hard time with my oldest son and have been for a few years. it's very challenging and your hohos make me smile. i love your blog and all the recipes! i know you receive quite a lot of nastiness in the cyberworld but there are more moms like me who just think you are a great example of a mom and a small business owner!! ;-)

So glad you are getting back into blogging. I can't remember when I started following your blog, but I think it was about the time you made that doll, from the pre-printed fabric. Where the doll was on the fabric and you just cut her out and stitched her together. Love your blog, it is colorful, joyful and honest. I'm from Indiana.

I began following you over a year ago. I don't remember how I stumbled upon you on IG, but I'm so glad I did. I bought my first hoho for my foster baby at the time and since have purchased ten or more. Most recently I purchased a hoho pillow, and I am so excited to receive it. I hope to purchase a mama tote and a toddler blanket in the future and possibly a hoho play set. I love what you stand for and what you do. I want to be like you when I grow up! I would love to see a "how I got here post" that would include a more expanded story of how hohos came about, especially how they got their name. :)

Well hello. I'm Megan and I'm from the mountains of NC. I've been hanging around here for a few years. I've gotten a few hohos from you, along with random items like a needle minder, a toddler-sized robe, some hoop art, and I don't know what else! haha I love hearing about your boys and just your real life, but I also love your recipes!

Hi Crystal! I've been reading since you were pregnant with Aaron and have been so inspired by your heart and creativity. I love your sewing tutorials and have made a couple even. And I share a love for Wonder Woman too and wish I could find as many cool items as you have :)

I have been reading your blog for a few years now. And I absolutely love it. I love your devotion not only to your family, but to God as well. It is refreshing because you are not judgmental in the way that you express your feelings. The first post that I read of yours was "Come on get happy." And quite by accident; you turned me on to another of my favorite blogs, The Bloggess. My daughter still loves the Hoho that you created for her. It makes me smile each time I see her with it.

Wishing you continued love and success,
Kristen O.

LOVE the hohos!!! I have been reading for prob 5 or 6 years. Glad to see you posting more again:) I have ordered some scissors ribbon from you once and maybe won something from you too, I can't remember. Bought some prints. Love all you do! From WA state.

You know me, I've been around since before Aaron, somewhere between 06'-07'. I found you thru Julie over at Joys Hope, I think you sponsored a giveaway or something like that. I am constantly listening to your great words of wisdom, I pass it all along to my sisters and girlfriends at church. I tell them that my friend crystal said... Or does.... Or makes..... Or tried... You seem like such an open book. It's refreshing, years ago I would come to your page check in and then leave it on for hours just to hear your playlist.... Yeah, funny I know, I learned of so many artists that I adore thru that playlist.
We're over in Spain now, since I began following you I've lived in 3 different states, 7 different homes and now a different country. At one point we lived about an hour north of Richmond and I really wanted to stop in for a cup of tea a time or two when I saw the Charlottesville sign on the interstate.
