12 Knits of Christmas

If you are an avid reader, you know I talk about Ravelry alot. its a great source for patterns, yarns, and people who share the obsession of all things yarn.
I am in a ton of groups... some I contribute to, some I just read posts , and a few are charities I try to help out when I can. I started a group last year for my Halos of Hope New England team.

The group I mentioned in the subject , 12 Knits of Christmas, is where people make a list of items they want to crochet or knit for friends and family for Christmas. Last year I finished 3 items. I am starting late this year and I haven't made a list yet.  But I know I have to make a Mario blanket for my boyfriend, an Eeyore hat and Winnie the Poo blankie/stuffed animal for my great niece, a pair of slipper socks for my boyfriend, and a few cat sweaters for my cat.. that's about 5 or 6 items so far.


here are 6 granny squares I made for my boyfriends blanket.. 246 to go! :)

Cake Decorating Class on Craftsy!

need I say more? :)

Online Food Craft Class

In this class you will learn how to make 3 showstopping cakes!

people are raving about Alice's class.....

Phenominal class!

by  on June 29, 2013

This was one of my first Craftsy classes, and remains one of my absolute favorites. Alice's instructions are clear and precise, and since my initial Queen of Sheba cake over a year ago, I've made TONS of them - and even shipped them all over the US! Alice is, indeed, the Chocolate Goddess. I wish I could give this class 10 stars.

Soooo pleased with this course !!!!!

I'm so. glad I took this course, I didn't know a thing about chocolate cakes or the handling of chocolate. I'm very enthusiastic now to give it a try. I would like to watch more courses given by Alice. I wish she had taught how to make chocolate cigarettes.
Alice is very pleasant to watch. Happy, happy, happy.

Busy Busy Busy

Its almost Halloween and I haven't made any Halloween masks like I was planning to do. I didn't realize the Cabbage Patch kid hat/wig and Minion hats would be such a hit in my shop.. I get a few orders daily :) I am not complaining, not even a little bit. I love it. But I wish I had time to make OTHER stuff :)
October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month... I had plans to make some hats . Haven't made them yet  :(  I was able to make a few necklaces .


I've made up 4 and all proceeds go to Breast Cancer Research. 
Also at the end of the month I plan on raffling off this scarf .. 
the official post can be found HERE
I was suppose to be raffled on the 10th but I, as I said, have been busy. :)
I will post about it again next week here and on my facebook page  . 

BTW Christmas ornaments coming soon.
 If you are looking for anything specific , message me or 
leave a comment.

Lets hear it for the 80's!

I was born in 1980... yup I am 33 yrs young :)  growing up in the 80's meant alot of cheezy stuff. :) one of my favorite toys of the 80's where the cabbage patch dolls . I had a few. with and without hair. So when I saw a pattern for cabbage patch kids hats I had to make one. I added one to my etsy shop and in a few short weeks it is the most popular item in my shop... ever! In the past 2 weeks I have had close to a dozen orders.  Yes I have another busy week ahead of me. :) check out the Cabbage Patch Kid hats in my etsy shop.

Year of Projects3: week 3

this week was a sad week. after volunteering to help out a friend with her consignment shop, she decided to close the shop :(  it's a cute shop with a good selection but the shop is in a bad location.not many other shops around to get business from. about 3 miles away there are 4 more consignment shops.

Anyway... from week 2 i started a baby princess crown as part of my crochet hook challenge using a size E hook.
the picture below shows the same pattern, same hook but different size yarn so I have different size crown. the pink one is a baby size. the aqua one fits me.


The scarf below isnt on my list of projects... I just wanted to show it off :) I made it for a raffle .

Patterns are getting a revamp

I have been thinking over the past few days about my patterns. The are easy to make and people love them for that but I think I can make them better. Definitely need better pictures and maybe more of them in the pdf.
I hope new patterns pop in my head during this process. What would you like to see?
