Fall is Here!!
Good Afternoon! These mornings are getting chillier and chillier, and that's great! I love the Fall. It's by far the best season; hoodie weather, cozy blankets, we can open the windows and not run the air conditioner, APPLE CIDER. I'm not much of a pumpkin spice person, but I do LOVE apple pie and apple cider. Updates! As many of you know, 2019 has been an extremely rough year for the Cunningham family... My husband even lost his job in August...yeah...He has found a job that
When life pelts you with frozen lemons...
As today's title suggests, life has not been great recently. It could be worse, absolutely, but it could also be better... We've basically been rolling 1's for the past few months. This past Saturday while mowing the lawn, my husband fell down one of our hills and managed to hit his right foot on the lawn mower, and it went under, breaking his big toe and mildly cutting some toes. The mower was off, thankfully, so he only broke his toe. He was a big baby about and didn't stop

Good Afternoon! A quick announcement before I start talking about my newest Frodo's Fancies original Pattern! This SUNDAY, June 23, we will be at the George Dick Field off of Christine Ave, in Hamilton, NJ from 8 am- 4 pm. I hope to see everyone there and can't wait to get some sales! The summer is the start of the slow season for me, so in order to try to off set the slow time, I am trying to come out with more and more new products and Frodo's Fancies original patterns. Thi
Are you still there?
Hello! I know it's been a while since I last posted, no surprise there. I had been doing so well then life happened. Oh well, moving on! I don't have much to talk about today, so this will be a short post. As someone who is only 5 feet 4 inches tall, I can attest to "shorter is sometimes better!" So, I had to cancel my spot at last weekend's event I had scheduled. My father was in the hospital and my mother needed me to stay close to home in case I needed to jet down to her.
2019 Here We Go!
Good Evening! So apparently my last blog post was October 22, 2018! Wow! Right after that post I was CRAZY busy with craft fairs and vendor events! It was an EXCELLENT season for Frodo's Fancies! I made more in the Month of November than I have ever made since my shop opened in 2015! My goal for this year is to make what I made last year, PLUS an extra $1,000!!! Can we do this?! Yes! If all of you, my dear customers/followers order things, if you get your friends and co worke
Product of the Week!
I once again forgot to pick a product of the week yesterday... And I know what you're all thinking, "why doesn't she set an alarm or reminder on her phone?" My answer to that is, I do. I have it saved to my calendar to remind me every week to write the blog and pick a Product of the Week, and I still forget. I promise I'll try to do better! Before we delve into this week's product, I'd like to talk about some recent projects I've been doing/have recently completed. I recently

Once again I've been away from the keyboard, and my crochet hooks, for a bit... If you are following us on social media, then you know that we bought a house and did the big move this past Sunday. After a long, hard day of packing, moving, and wrestling a toddler to the potty, I completely forgot to chose a Product of the Week and write a blog post about it... I promise you all that I will get back on track soon. But first, a little bit about our new house!! We are still in N
