don't ya just love the cupcake? i think she turned out so cute!!! ever since i followed a knitting pattern for dave's wool hat, i thought i would try my hand at the adorable crocheted amigurumi i've admired for awhile. this little gal only took me a total of 2 hours!! i need a lighter shade of tan yarn for the base ... it came out a little too dark for the eyes and mouth. but other than that, i am pretty pleased with her! :) i can't wait to make others to put in my etsy shop! keep your eyes peeled!!
the holidays were wonderfully sweet but oh so exhausting. i love christmas so much ... and i did very good this year with early shopping and a bunch of handmade items for friends and family ... but i was just going a mile a minute everyday ... and work was just silly! 9 to 10 hour days 6 days a week! i am not complaining because i am very thankful to have a job during these scary economic times. i know how blessed and lucky i am. but between that and social engagements and family gatherings ... i just didn't have a moment to really sit back and enjoy the season! tonight is the first night i can just sit on the couch and look at the christmas tree and relax ... and it's all gotta come down in a few days!!! whew!!
but, as crystal mentioned in her http://littlebitfunky.blogspot.com/">blog, as enjoyable as the holiday season is and how much fun it is to decorate the home all cozy christmas ... there is just something about getting everything all back to clean and normal. and you better believe i am looking forward to lazy days off and quiet evenings in. :o)
i will be spending the coming weeks updating my blog with new items and musings and i will be working very hard on adding a bunch of new items to etsy. i have so many ideas and things i want to make and share ... i'm so excited!! :)
