batty for you

Hello!  I just finished up this cute baby bat amigurumi.  I made it following a pattern I purchased HERE.  My bat turned out a bit smaller because I used a smaller crochet hook and my yarn is a bit thinner.

Isn't he adorable?!  His wings can open and close too.

Here he is hanging on my finger.  My finger looks really short here.  I guess I really do have short little fingers.  He is a cute project to make for Halloween.

Lately I have been multicrafting (like multitasking but just for craft projects).  Can I trademark that term, multicrafting?  No one steal that, please.  I think it has helped me get more done.  I have set up different areas for different tasks.  I have a stamping/coloring area, diecutting area and crocheting area.  I used to try to finish one project at a time but I realized my attention is too short, and I would get bored or tired of my current project but couldn't go on to another one cause I felt I had to finish what was in front of me first.  So usually I would just let that project sit on my craft table forever.  Now I can move from one project to another and not pressure myself to finish before starting another project.

Today, I plan to finish up more Christmas tags and start on another crochet project.

Thank so much for stopping by!

Gosh, that is the cutest crocheted project I've ever seen! I am in awe of your crocheting skills. Your multicrafting life is very similar to mine. I have one table for jewelry work, one for papercrafting, and a living room floor with various boxes of other crafts to do while watching TV. I also have a short attention span so I get bored if I need to make more than one of anything. Going from one project to another does help to keep my mind engaged while making multiples.
Oh my goodness, that has to be the cutest bat ever! You are very talented, I only know basic knitted, now I wish I knew how to crochet! And crochet good like this! Great job! Sooooo cute!

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!
