Amigurumi !!!!!
Thanks to Theresa on Youtube! I made my first bear! It aint the best lol.. but it is GOOD.. and will only get better!!!!!!
Jayden has claimed it as his... I think ill let him play with it for a bit then I am going to put it up for safe keeping!

Jayden just informed me... he needs a PEEDOE (blanket.. dont ask) lol So im assuming he is wanting me to make him one?!?! Oh goodness! 

Busy busy mama!

I started selling my stuff.... I guess I better update my blog (not that anyone really reads it!!!) lol

I make these CUTE little headband bows... they look silly on Kaityln cause she has thin invisible blonde hair! But  they are ADORABLE on me and my niece.

The last one is my fav because it is a different smoother yarn.. it makes the color pop!!!

On the ball again!

I took a little bitty break from crocheting.. what with FINALS.. and going on the Atkins diet and learning to work out DAILY.. I needed to get things in order and under way before I sat down and CONCENTRATED.


I am back!!! This week I should be getting yarn to finish those 3 blankets that I ran out of yarn for, I am working on the hat this very moment for a special Grandma of mine, and I am also eyeballing a hat that I might put up for sell... just cause I dont know anyone to make it for.. I just thinks its CUTE!

Anyways! Happy hookers !!! Ill be posting pics of the hat as soon as it is done... shouldnt take but a couple hours or a day(depending on how the kids act)

New years resolution? To late? I THINK NOT!

The Lord has put 1 word on my heart, CHARITY, what can I do for others....? Its hard to do a lot of things with the kids and school and no child care, so I searched, and searched, and today it hit me!

Project Linus & Snuggle Project

I plan to donate throughout the year, my goal is......

3 blankets by the end of the year for Project Linus
50 snuggles by the end of the year

This is what I have in mind, and I am going to set myself to do it! Hopefully I am able to do more! If you would like to donate granny squares for Project Linus or yarn, let me know! I am happy to include whatever if given!

Yarn or snuggles is also ok to send me to donate!!!!!!

Doily Adventures!

Anyone who has done doilies knows these are pretty small... about 2-3 inches! But I was just 1. practicing, 2. experimenting with design and 3. experimenting with color... See I bought 1 ball of size 10 cotton, and a size 7 boye steel needle. I wanted to make a bookmark for a very special friend but I wanted to practice first, the first picture, I made that design up (just goofing around) and the second, I got from a lady who makes videos on the internet. Now how did I come up with the colors considering I only had 1 ball of yarn?!?!? Well food coloring and water make a big difference .. hehe.. (always thinking creative) ! My book mark was suppose to be blue, but! there was a little to much pink in the mix and the bottom turned purple... so its now multicolored, and the cross is a faint purple... cant wait to try something new... I am thinking of making a bookmark out of the start stitch, Who knows!!!! I want to try pineapples but I havent found a design I like.. any suggestions?

Wow its been awhile

So I havent updated in a couple days.. well maybe over a week.. but I have good reasons!!! I am making 2 blankets right now, and both I cant post pictures till im done cause they are presents! But one of them I looked at a pattern and made it my own ... and the other is basic but comfy! I also have been DOILY crazy! I made my first one today... like a coaster! I crocheted a flower coaster with some scrap yarn, as well as this thing.. idk what to call it.. but its like a coaster.. but not a coozie either.. hmmmm ... my next adventure will be making plarn.. and making dishclothes with plarn!!!!

I have found my new hobby!!! CROCHETINIG!!! Some think its boring, however I LOVE it.... I will admit... IM ADDICTED!!!! I have many projects going at once because I get bored easily.. this way I have LOTS to do!!! I am going to use this blog to nothing but talk about my crocheting!!

Yesterday I free handed a headband with a heart on it for Kaitlyn, and a hat for her. The day before I made my very first anything.. a beanie for Stephen... YES I KNOW he looks funny in the picture.. he begged for the beanie.. but by the time it was done I had to wake him up to try it on at midnight!!! So he was tired and not really workin with me!!!!

Right now I am working on a Spider and Web throw, pot holders, and little hearts and flowers (still trying to master those~!)

We will see what comes up next!!!!
