Boogie on, Garth

Hello, hello!  Back for another early morning installment!  So I was talking in my last post about all of the holiday themed items I am working on, but I had a small life mishap the other day that caused me to start  going through some of my stuff. I found a project that I had nearly finished, but had lost the creative drive to do so. I decided that was as good a time as any to get-r-done, AND I got pictures.  I should be posting it on my etsy page to sell... but it seems ya'll are getting the first look.  It is a very interesting item, to say the least.  Another scarf, but with some very interesting colors... I don't know how it will look on here because it seems to look different under different lights to me.  Anyway, here it is, and I promise I will have some more photos of the other stuff I promised, soon!

Haha, fancy that!  The "pink" looks SUPER pink on here, lol.  It is actually kind of pinkish-orange, like a salmon color, I think.  The darker color is a navy blue with little red fibers woven through it.  Wow, I don't even know if I can sell it confidently.  I can put all this info in the description, but it just looks so different in an online environment... It looks so awesome on here, that is just CRAY. lol. Alright, all, I hope you enjoy it, and I will blog at ya soon!

Winter Boogie Fever!

Hey, it's been a bit, but I AM READY!  And I am not going to give it all up at once, this time.. I have a few projects in the works that have a holiday feel. But I am thinking I may have started them too late to be ready for this season.  I guess it all depends on how much work I put in!  Well, first off, here is the next version of the last purse I posted, and this one I intend to sell!  I am thinking about lining it, which is why I am worried if this one will be finished in time to get it sold this year. I suppose if I leave it a bit plain and try not to over-do the Holiday theme I could sell it at any time of year...

What do you think?  I haven't fully planned how it is turning out, heck, the pattern was just how it "ended up".  I also have a green and white sweater in the works, size small, or kids.  I am making a head band or two, and I am making some more of the granny square slippers.  I am thinking I might start a sports team or other themed onesie for a baby, but I want to start getting a little more original, so we'll see.  I will post for ya'll here soon a picture of my most original work EVER!  It is a snowman that I made for my mom for xmas a year or so ago.  I am so proud of it, but I didn't write out a pattern and I haven't attempted to make it again.  I think the small brimmed hat I made may be original as well.  I will see if I can get a pic of that, too.  It was around the same time.  Hopefully that wasn't my only Renaissance period... I need to get back to that place!  By the way, if anyone has a line on how to make a little extra money through crafting or helping with an event, or anything, let me know.  Hurting a bit right now and just need a line on some odd jobs, if anyone has any leads!

Thanks and Happy Holidays!  Boogie with you soon! =)

The Art of Survival

     Oh how I wish I could capture that need, that endless motivation to move forward, by the reigns and run with it.  I have a desire to cook, clean, travel, make sound investments, and save towards a brighter future.  My drive, however, needs a tune up, a make-over, or complete overhaul.  My current crochet project is a perfect example, as well as my lack of finding a simple envelope, to put a letter to a friend in, so it can be mailed.

This purse should only take me 3-4 working days, tops.  I think it's been about 3 weeks now.  But, it is close to being done, which is exciting, and I plan on getting it finished over the weekend. We'll see how it goes...  Either way, here is two pics of the purse I think I am in love with, but feel I should try to sell to make up for the lack of currency in the household these days....

When it is finished, it will have a really big button to attach the strap on the back side.  This is a variation on a pattern from Lion Brand Yarns, and I used some scrap yarn that I have had lying around and some other scrap yarn from a friend who unloaded a bunch on me last year.  Speaking of my stash... WOW.  I am sure a few of you have way more yarn and fabric than I can even comprehend, but I am laughing maniacally each time I see the amount of crafting material I have attained in the last 10 years.  Ok, I think I better get to some of those important things I was speaking on earlier!  I hope you liked my purse as much as I do! =)

Good Morning Interweb!

Hey there! Just sneaking on really quick before work.  I have a couple of projects going, but I haven't gotten any pics taken yet.  My favorite one right now is a bag with gold, burgundy, and blue and I am still trying to finish this blanket I have been working on for a year or so now and it keeps transforming on me.  Plus I kinda messed up by adding some stitches, but it is for home use, so I am not looking back!  I will do my best to get some batteries for my silly, cheap camera. (it does work, though, so I am greatful!)  Hope ya'll are having a fabulous day!  =D
