Crocheted scarf

Hello!  Just finished up my second scarf for the year.  I followed the Triple Luxe Cowl pattern from All About Ami.  It's a fast project and I think I would have finished faster if I hadn't taken it apart like 3 times to make sure I was connecting my rounds correctly.  I got my yarn from Lion Brand Yarn on Monday night and finished it Wednesday night so that is a quick project for me.  I wish I had ordered more of the yarn.  It is so soft and poufy!

Here it is folded up.  I love the stitches on here because it looks a bit knitted instead of crocheted.  I know, I should learn how to knit instead of trying to fake knit with crochet.  But crocheting seems a bit easier, doesn't it?  Have you seen the latest trend with yarn also?  They are coming out with some huge bulky yarn and even larger hooks and needles.  They look like tree branches!  I think it looks really neat to crochet or knit something with super bulky yarn but it does look a bit comical trying to knit with needles thicker than your arms.

Here it is wrapped on a hanger.  It measures about 30 inches long when folded in half and about 7.5 inches wide.  I really wish I had this on my freezing trip to LA.  Yes, I would never make it on the East coast!

I haven't decided quite what to do with the scarves I've been making.  Possibly give away as gifts or even sell in my Etsy shop.  Think I'll be ordering more yarn soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Neat! Both knitting and crocheting look difficult, especially to keep the stitches even. My grandma used to knit a lot but nobody else ever learned.

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.

If you've read the story, yo…

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!
