Phat Purple Chain


It's been a Long TIme... I have been working on quite a few things. But, there is not enough time in the day. I truly don't realize how those mothers, with multiply kids and outside jobs, still find time to craft and blog. Phew, that's alot. Anyway, here are a few things that I have been working on. Above is my chain link necklace. I love it. I'm not a big fan of purple, but that was my test yarn color and it came out so beautiful. You probably can't tell to much in the picture, but the yarn has a bit of a silver shimmer to it. Below are some earrings that I made for a friend. There were a ton more, but these are the ones that I photographed at the last minute.


Much love blog family, I need to get better with dividing my time between life, crafting, blogging,reading, family and working.

P.S. I changed my blog layout and added a banner to the top and the bottom of the page. If you click the bottom banner it takes you to my Etsy Shop. Let me know what you think.

In other news: Today, I mourn on my birthday, because of the lost of someone that everybody in the world adored for whatever reason. I am still in shock right now over the sudden passing of a legendary musical genius, MICHAEL JACKSON. I am also disgusted at some other the media outlets that are focusing on all the negativity and not the tons of musical contributions that he shared with the world. Just my opinion, but I feel that they focused on these negative issues (true are not) during the remainder of his life. It's so many of his songs and dances that bring back a flood of energized memories, for me and others. So, in death maybe he should be alloted some empathy for his musical genius. Anyway, may he get peace in the here after and gain the love and acceptance that he so obviously longed for.

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Remember those Sweetheart Candies?
Here's a scarf I made inspired by them.


I had a bear of a time sewing together all of those hearts. That's the only part of doing anything crafty I hate, the sewing. All together it was 21 separate pieces, that I attached together to make the scarf. I didn't put any saying on the hearts that will go around the neck I figured it would be a little irritating to the skin and it would be to bent to make out.


Anyway, my intentions were to sell it on Etsy, but I really didn't finish in enough time to ship it by Valentines. Now my sister is asking for an Anti-Valentines version, with sayings like Love Sucks, Bite Me........ I think its a great idea. I actually had to keep myself from writing such things on the hearts in the first place, trying to keep in mind that I was making it for a potential customer. I Love It. One of my coworkers wants it. But, I think that I'm going to make another one and personalize it for her.

Happy New Years ......


As always I have been away for quite some time now.  I've been a busy, stressed little bee lately, but that okay.  My mom surprised me with this Starbucks Cable Knit Mug, that I had been trying to find for a couple of months, to no avail. Because I drink tons of coffee and teas, it has quickly become my FAVE mug.   

I did get a few projects done before the end of 08. I made those cute and simple hand warmers. When I finished them, the first thing that my mom said was, "I surprised you didn't put a flower on them, you put flowers on everything". The funny (or sad) thing is that I was debating before I showed them to anyone, if I should add a flower or not.  Photobucket
I did make the flower detachable, cute Huh?Photobucket
It makes a very cute ring too. Photobucket

My niece's dad bought her a shirt that she already has in the same size and everything, so I did a onesies Revamp.  I just crocheted a little mini skirt onto the little shirt with a mini heart brooch, to match the hearts that cover the onesies.


I also made a few hats for the little one in the family. Mostly food themed hats. Including a Cupcake and a Pumpkin Hat. Sorry the Cupcake picture is from the trusty camera phone, which was the only thing handy at the time.

Thanks for stopping by..........I'm hoping that everyone has a very successful, elevating, less stressful and joyous new year. I just rang in the New Year Blogging, What does that mean? Oh well, Back to my piles of WIP's---HELLLLLLOOOOOO '09

You Tell Me What's Better Than, Food???

First off I've been M.I.A for quite a long time, guys.

Well, here goes. What's better than food, you got it Miniature Foods! My cousin needed some things to accompany a small grocery buggy that my mom gave her a few years back. First of all she never puts anything on her desk. So, I decided to surprise her with a bunch of goodies. I tell you sooner or later we are only going to be able to afford food this size, if prices keep going up. Anyway...


The shopping cart has a Oprah Magazine and an Essence Magazine, 3 bags of Potatoe Chips (including Limon Her Favorite),


box of Celestial Seasonings Green Tea (another Fave),


a Crochet Apple,


a Mrs. Smiths Apple Pie,


Here's the back of the Pie Box......

Everything came out very well, being that I made up things has as I went along. Thanks for looking.
