Pikachu!

Hello!  Well, it's been a while again!  Still feeling a bit shlumpy.  I don't know if that's a word but that's how I've been feeling lately.  But I decided to finally finish up this crocheted Pikachu hat that I started making a super long while ago.  I think I stopped making it because I found a Pikachu costume for my son and it came with a mask but it's kind of a lame mask cause it's so hard and there really isn't a place for my son's nose.  So it's like smashed and not comfortable.  But once I stopped making the hat, I just forgot about it.  I took it out the other day and I realized the basic hat part was almost done!  I just had to finish the face parts and the ears.  Good thing I had some good notes.

So I finished up the details and put the hat together last night and my son can use the hat as part of his Halloween costume.  Yes, he can reuse that costume for the 3rd year in a row.  It's been a while so I can't even remember the site I got the basic hat pattern from.  She had crocheted a bunch of Sesame Street characters.  The ears and facial parts I got from this site.  But I made the eyes a little differently and added a mouth.

Here it is on my son's head.  Pika's ears flop forwards and backwards but still looks pretty cute.

A different angle.

Alrighty, I got some goodies today so maybe I'll get back into the crafty swing of things.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Knuffle Bunny

Hi!  The Greeting Farm had their Customer Challenge & Chit Chat Night "A Night at the Bookstore" and introduced a few challenges.  I have to say chatting was too fast for me and I couldn't really keep up.  It was still early here, and I had to pick up the kids from school and activities and make dinner and eat and so I guess the timing didn't really work out with our schedule. You can check out the challenge details on the SCS forum HERE.  I made this card for Favorite Child's Book category.  It is based on the Mo Willems book Knuffle Bunny.  It's one of my kids' favorites and it's such a cute story.  We actually love reading Mo Willems' books especially his Elephant and Piggie series.  Those books are hilarious!  This challenge also made me realize that I haven't read many books recently except kids' books.  I used to love reading but just haven't given it much time lately.  Anyway, here is my card.

August 2012

Hi!  We had a short black out this morning and I didn't know what to do without my computer and internet, and I couldn't go blog surfing.  I was sad but I did cut everything out for my kids' Halloween goody bags.  Good thing my Big Shot isn't electric. 

Anyway, I made another page to my 2012 calendar/scrapbook using MFT's sketch #39 and Pure Innocence Year of Flowers series Poppy.

Here's my page.  Somehow I'm not loving this one too much.  I love the image but somehow the colors remind me of fall too much and not too summery.  And I think the proportions are a bit off.  But I decided to just stick with it.  It's still cute.

Here's a picture of both pages.

I'm gonna have to wait til I order the next couple months to continue.  But I'm happy I've made it this far!

The kiddies are home for fall break.  It's nice but messy and noisy.  It may be a long week.

Thanks for reading!

no BUTTS about it

Hello!  Today I have a series of cards to share which I think are super cute and funny too.  I love Birdie Brown's stamp sets available at MFT and the cards today uses the behind images of the cat, dog & pig found in Cool Cat, Lucky Dog and Hog Heaven. 

I had a couple of ideas for the design of this card but I felt the sentiment called for multiple images of the animal's behind.  I just couldn't let there be one image and the sentiment have plural Butts.  I know that is weird of me but things like that drive me a little crazy.  I won't get into how people misuse plural and possessive s though.  That really drives me crazy.  Anyway, so then I thought this would be a cute way to stamp multiple images over the card.  I created the sentiment on the front using an alphabet set from Lawn Fawn.

This is the sentiment on the inside which comes in the Cool Cat stamp set.

Here is the dog version.  These cards took a lot of time to color!
