A Little Crazy, A Lot New!

11 Apr

I am back from vacation! ❤ I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend and is ready for some fun. After spending a weekend in my hometown I could not be any more excited about the craft show coming up. Sometimes a little trip is all you need to spark up some new ideas and get crafty!

Lately I’ve been in a making mood. From my last post you can see I was working on a teddy bear 😀 It’s not quite finished yet but now that I’ve gotten a majority of it done – I’m really feeling like I can make pretty much anything now. Bring on those crazy patterns – I’m ready to tackle them!

I’ve also been in a making mood when it comes to food. If you didn’t already know – I’m not the best cook in the house 😉 My first attempts usually aren’t my best and I tend to get measurements mixed up often 😛 I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to start a new recipe over because I mix up Tablespoon and Teaspoon. It’s depressing. But after a little trial and error I usually get it right. Well, I went a little crazy and picked out a few  new recipes and bought all the ingredients. I’m ready to get a little crazy in the kitchen!!

My second favorite thing about Easter this year is baskets 😀 I love baskets!! But this year I have a new twist for them. I’ll be using them to make pre-made baby gift sets to sell at the craft show. So thank you everyone who gave Emma baskets this year, and thank you Easter sales for making baskets el cheapo!

So here’s to new ideas, new patterns, new recipes, and getting a little crazy! I hope everyone’s ready to enjoy these next few weeks with me 😀

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

P.S. Thank you google images for the lovely pictures :P

What I’ve been working on!

4 Apr

Now that the weather is getting warmer and crocheting blankets and scarves make me too hot – I’ve moved on to smaller cuter things 😀

I got these awesome books from my mom and my best friend along with some fun colored yarn to play with. I’ve always wanted to learn how to make Amigurumi animals and I finally attempted my first one! I’m not completely done with it but I’ll go ahead and show you the progress 😀

Here’s the head and ears (unstuffed)

Head, body, and arms! (Stuffed)

Next up I am making two big stuffed legs, attaching them, buttons for eyes, and embroidering a smile & nose. I’m making a teddy bear!!

After I get better at making these little guys I plan on doing something I haven’t yet seen done with them before! You’ll have to stay tuned to see what’s coming up next!

Thanks for stopping by! 

Love Always,
