Thanks Be to the Boogie Gods

I was sure that I was gone for a year or more, and look... it's only been 3/4 of a year! Gold star for me! Yea, okay, well I have some finished projects, with pictures no less, so this is me making up for the hiatus. I am certain that if I don't find some buyers soon, my entire house will be nothing but totes of FPs (finished projects) and WIPs... I  won't be able to make it to either the kitchen or the bathroom! I just figured out that my blog name is horrendous for what I am trying to accomplish. Google doesn't even register it as a valid result when  I  search the name of it, and its a freaking blog on a google site! Sigh. Okay, rant is done, but someone please get interested  in my life ffs. Here are those pics, anyway.... damn, wth happened to the pic i did of my friends hat. :/ Sigh.

First pic is a gold, sleeveless short tunic with small black band. Just something I put together, I think it looks good and will look great on the right person.

This second one is some more hats. Have I hit anyone's interests yet?

And last, is a halter from the book I  own, "24 hour crochet", that I use  and reference often. 

I will try  and be back soon! Happy holidays!

Raise the Bar Boogie

Sneaking in to say hello, and surprise you all ya'll with a few things! Yes, I am saying ya'll is better than you all.  So there!

ANYWHO..... I have a lot of projects that I am dusting off (uh, not litterally... they stay in plastic while they await their debut) and working on!  I have pictures of some of those I have/have not finished, and some new projects that I spun out in a few days.  Now that I have a smart phone I can deliver more pictures, faster; but, I now realize I need a head to display hats on, and my dress form up to display clothes.  Sigh.  Well, at least we can get you all nearly 100% caught up on what I am crafting... okay, I will admit that 'you all' worked well there.  So, let's see, I think we need a list to show how awesomely accomplished this post is:

4 hats
2 loveys
1 pair socks
1 bag
1 basket
1 stuffed animal
1 sweater

Some in progress, some finished, and STILL not nearly everything I have started.  All the memes are painfully accurate...

OKAY! READY?? PHOTO MONTAGE TIME!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? @_@

This is a project from a previous post, for those of you who have maybe been following along.  No longer a WIP for some time, I have yet to put it on Etsy.... I believe it will be up by the end of summer this year.

These two are of a slouchy beanie called "The Hadley" by: Acquanetta Ferguson. The blue one is same style, but it is more of a youth/child size.

On the left we have another child size hat, just a regular small beanie with a super chunky wool that has a run of tinsel through the yarn.  Above is a hat for my other half, which has been posted in this blog before. Thankfully there is some progress to be noted! It is supposed to be Marvin the Martian's helmet.  

This little guy goes waaaay back... I started him somewhere between 2010 and 2012. Whew.  glad to see him finally put together, and hope to see him up for sale! He's made of Caron yarn, so he's super soft! I can't help but think of him as a white elephant gift, but I wound also be super happy to see him purchased for a nursery.

Here is a little easter basket inspiration, above. As usual, too late to be worth posting for the holiday this season.  This is more of a prototype anyway. On the left is a project I originally started for myself, some time ago... around the same time as the white elephant, I believe.  I picked these socks up again a couple months ago, and now I am giving them to my mom for her birthday this week!  That reminds me... I haven't posted the socks I did make for myself earlier this year... well, another time, then.

 These two loveys are WIPS that I believe I have mentioned before.  I had some creative block here and had put them down for a while.  Recently I put the head on the pink/purple one, which will be a bunny, once I find my notes.  I am still trying to decide what animal to do for the blue/green one. I am thinking elephant since my recent completion of the one above.

Last, and probably least for now... the Halloween surprise from a post last year.  Still a WIP, yet showing some progress like the other updates we have here!  Yes, I am very proud! It has been a morphing project, and sadly I am still in a turmoil over where it is going.  When I last posted, I thought I had a clear idea, but I am feeling a different vibe that I can't ignore and want to get it right, so it's on hold.  Still gonna be themed towards a horror movie character... not that hard to tell which, and still in the same basic class as the original idea.  I will be making a doll of the horror character, which is my other set back... need some colors I don't have... and since people want to visit my blog 10x more than they want to buy my stuff, I am stuck. Thanks alot. =P

Really, though. Still super happy that I have so many views. (It's a lot to me)  Don't know if everyone of them is a different person who was trying to look up something about a "boogie" and ended up in this crazy place, or if I actually have a few people that come back to see my progress. Probably just my mom or my aunt... lol.  If my mom, well, now you know what you are getting for your birthday this year! =D

Seriously, though, anyone passing through and actually getting to this point in this post... I would really appreciate a comment about any of the projects above.  And anyone feel free to get in touch with me here or Etsy or Facebook or Ravelry .  Man, I need to update my ravelry... PEACE AND LOVE!!!

Um, am I on the other side, yet?


I can tell you, but I am sure you already know, it's a long hard road outta hell. And me, I'm lazy and more of an introvert than I would like to admit.  Life keeps prodding, and I stand there like a hungry cow chewing their cud.  Maybe I 'shoulda' been a writter. Maybe on a shopping binge I shoulda went looking for a different craft that is faster and more manly, like jewelry making. =D What? you use pliers and possibly a soldering iron!

I must say, I looked at my stats, and for my lack of having any consistency, I am proud to say I have had over 700 views.  I think that is what it said...

Okay, well, here is a finished product that I have done nothing with even though I now have a smart phone.  I'll tell you, though, the Etsy Seller App could be a little better. I guess it is more for on the spot selling, which is pretty cool to be able to digitally and personally sell the item at the same time.  Oh, I'm rambling.... here's the pic and a promise to be back soon.
