This is Halloween!!

Gearing up for Halloween and working on a bunch of crafty projects with my friend Bri.  Soon I will post some pics on completed projects and maybe even a how-to if one or two turn out particularly awesome and easy at the same time! =D  So, be on the lookout!

Also, I am still working on a monkey for a co-worker to give to their fiance.  Very original ideas their loved one had, I must say.  Can't wait to post pics of the finished product.  Soon, I will be starting a project of three scarfs for one of my mom's co-workers.  And last, but not least, I will be finishing my first pair of socks.  They are for my boyfriend!  I will post pics of each as I finish them, so I should have a plethora of posts here in the next few weeks!! *Fingers crossed*

Is there anybody in there?

Hey, long time, no see. Did anyone miss me?  Probably not, but it's ok.  What isn't ok is that I went over a month without posting anything!?!? Ahhh, gotta love those busy times when it is all work and no play... NOT!!!  Been working my butt off in the real world and don't really have much to show for it. =(  Definitely not a smaller butt, which I would just love!  Anyway... I don't have a whole lot to show, but I have some, so let me get myself together and get started...

FIRST, let me just say that crochet has become a very rewarding hobby, in more ways than one!  I recently finished a custom project for a family who want to give snowflake ornaments out this Christmas to the people who work at a hospital and help their little boy.  Here are a couple of pics from that:

Just wonderful!  So glad to be able to do something like that for people!  And so glad that they loved what they got! 

NEXT.... a few photos of some other projects I have worked on lately.  Both are spoken for already, but I am always down for custom work!!  First one is a hair band/head wrap thingy =P, and the second is a small jacket/vest for a young girl.

FINALLY!!!  I have made two of my "secret project" and I have pictures!!! I guess I had a lot to show for this month, instead of my "not much".  Thus far this is the most pics of my work that I have posted!  Woohoo! Can you say accomplishment!!  The secret project is along the lines of Halloween fun and mischief!  These little guys are VOODOO DOLLS!! BEWARE!  LOL.  They are just fun little interpretations, don't get the wrong idea.  I hope they will become more detailed in the future, but these are my little prototypes who both already have homes. =)

SO, do I get any kudos yet?  I sure hope so. At least I guess I can be happy if people keep reading my blogs.  I know I am kind of rough around the edges, but I have good intentions.  Someday I hope that I can share some patterns of my own with people.  I love seeing other peoples creativity, and I am so happy that I am at least occasionally sharing some of my own!  I guess that is all that really matters, huh?  Well, on that wonderful little note of realization, I will leave you all to ponder life and love!  I hope to see you again sooner rather than later!
