Wild {Crocheted} Bear

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday(s)! :D Christmas here was great, the girls loved it, American Girl has finally invaded our house (dang) and I crocheted this hooded bear cowl for Zippy!



I used a pattern from monpetitviolon on etsy. It is such a great pattern, I hope to make more of these soon! In the meantime...cute kid spam! :P

101 Square-A-Thon: Square 13

Helloooooooooooooooo!

I decided to pick my 101 Square-A-Thon back up after years of WIP hibernation. lol Instead of keeping with the squares in order, I decided to jump to Square 13:


This one was a lot of fun to hook up although I had to frog and re-hook more rounds than I care to admit. lol I didn't have much of a plan for this one, I just grabbed a couple of colors and ran with it. :P


I've been working so hard on my hat shop this year that I had stopped making anything outside of it for the longest time. I finally decided to make some time for other projects that I want to crochet so the 101 Square-A-Thon is BACK ON. lol! :D

Have a great day!

The Art Inside You

Hi everyone!

December is upon us, incredible! I'm doing the challenge this month at Gauche Alchemy, here's the inspiration board:


I decided to work on a page in my art journal and I got a jumpstart from this full page magazine ad:


I cut out the model, lol, and created a background that would fill up the hole I made in the ad. The biggest benefit of using a full page ad was that it covered up some ink bleed through from the back side of the page, lol. You can kind of see it in this picture:

Background with film negative, Bingo card and grey roses napkin
I covered the partial background I made with a very thin tissue paper-like handwritten sheet. I will really miss this when it's all used up. Best thing in my stash lately!


I thought this little sticker quote worked well since I've got a background inside of a snowy window. lol >.<



You're welcome to play along with this challenge and enter your project for a chance to win a prize! Check out the Gauche Alchemy blog for details. :D
