Amigurumi Octopus!

I am in the middle of making an Amigurumi Octopus. So far I have the head/body done. Now I have to make 8 tentacles. Does anyone have a suggestion for a name for this Octopus?

Guide Horses

I was watching t.v. Thursday morning and they had a show on about miniature guide horses for the blind. They said that they work just as well as dogs. Here is a link to the Guide Horse Foundation, it contains a lot of interesting information:
They have a lot of pictures of the horsing working with their owners.
When I was in high school, for about a week I volunteered at a place that trains guide dogs. I think that this place would be just as much fun.

I am so hungry, but I can't seem to get away from the computer! I am so addicted to the internet. Does anyone else have this problem? Do you see this as a problem? My stomach is growling, but I just keep cruising the internet. I have met lot's of nice people online. My other problem is I am not a big fan of cooking. I mainly make pasta dishes from boxes. I suppose I will peel myself away from the computer and see if I can find anything to eat.

Very cool Etsy shop!

Check out UniqueGrabs! They are a very cool Etsy shop. They sell beautiful greeting cards and tags for all occasions. They are so nice too. They have some of my dishcloths featured as an item that would go good with this mother's day card in their shop. Please look at this wonderful shop!

Mary Jane Socks

I found the cutiest pattern in Creative Knitting magazine for Mary Jane Socks for babies. I am checking my yarn stash so I can start making them either tonight or tomorrow. They are to precious :) I might have to make a pair to give to my niece. If they turn out I will put a pair up on Etsy.


I didn't realize that tick season had started until I had to pull about a dozen ticks off one of our cats :( I felt so bad for her. I don't know how she got so many ticks on her. None of our other cats have any ticks on them. Now I am paranoid that I have ticks on me. I keep feeling my head and hair to see if their is anything in it. It is so creepy! I am going to have to get tick spray tomorrow, to keep all of our animals safe. I hate ticks they are so creepy. Normally bugs don't bother me, but ticks really freak me out.

Biggest Loser!

Finally a woman won the Biggest Loser competition! It is about time. I have been waiting for this since the beginning and started to think maybe it was never going to happen. I can't believe how much everyone lost, it is so amazing. They should all be proud of themselves and feel like winners. Go Women!

*****Happy Dance*****

I am so excited I can't think straight. Today on Etsy one of the administrators asked people for suggestions for the Everyday (under $15) gift guide. I suggested my red and white dishcloths and guess what they choose them!!!!! I can't believe it. I am so doing my Happy Dance right now :) Here is the link to it and I am going to try to take a picture of it to post!

Blanket and matching pillow

A couple weeks ago I crocheted a purple blanket for an American Girl Doll. I decided last night to make a matching pillow for it. This is going to be the first pillow that I crochet. So far it is turning out to be very pretty. I need to go to the craft store and buy some stuffing for it. I am so excited about putting it up on Etsy! Check back often to see when I list it :)

Promo Grab Bag

I am going to send some stuff to a fellow Etsy seller for a promo grab bag. She is going to a craft show where she will be handing them out. I am definitely going to include my business cards, but I am not sure what else to include. Have you ever put anything in a promo bag if so what did you put in it? What kind of free samples do you give? Also what kind of free samples would you like to get? Help me please! I have to get it to the person by May 1st. Thank you!

I went to the craft store today. I just wanted to buy some beads that I am using to make an anklet for my Aunt. I came home with the beads (luckily), 15 skeins of yarn, 6 cuts of fabric including enough to make a blanket! How did that happen? Darn craft store!!!! They get me everytime! I think that I need to be banned from going to any craft stores! My husband tries to ban me, but obviously I don't listen! How was your last trip to the craft store? Did you stick to your list, if so can you give me some advice?

Cute Kitties :)

I have a cat named Needy Nelly :) He is extremely needy! He does not like it when I go into our bathroom and close the door on him. He lays flat on his side and looks under the door with one eye. It is so funny to see his eye under the door. lol! He is soooo cute!

My mom's b-day!

April 4th is my mom's birthday! Happy Birthday to my mom :)

Flannel Fabric

I bought a bunch of flannel fabric today! I am so excited to decide what to make all of it into. I did pick out a bitty twin/bitty baby outfit with one piece. I think that it is going to turn out really cute!

April Fool's

So who played an April Fool's day joke today? I didn't I couldn't think of anything to do :( I think my lunch was an April Fool's day joke. I found an unidentified gross object in it. Then I found a hair baked into the bread. Gross!!!! I wanted to throw up :( No more sub for me. It was so dissappointing! I hope your April Fool's day went better :) Maybe this is payback for all the mean jokes I played on people as a child. lol.
