Conservation Cat

7 Mar

Having trouble sleeping at night?

Nina isn’t.  She rests secure, knowing that her reusable grocery bags help save our planet’s resources (and they save her mommy 5 cents each time she uses them)!

 

I can haz save the planet?

Well, Ill have a nap. Then we can save the planet.

Happy Monday, everybody!

Friends, allow me to introduce Sally, little sister to Charlie Brownicus, friend to Linius Prime, and all around awesome amigurumi!!!

OMG! CUTE!

She’s so sweet!  I can’t wait to send her to my brother to add to his collection!

If you’re interested in the pattern, head on over to My Happy Little Etsy Shop and order a copy today!

 

Kitteh + Plarn = Win?

19 Jan

I like to make Miss Nina’s collars… it’s a great way to use up scrap yarn.  They start off looking awesome, but after about a week they tend to look like this:

 

frayed edges hurt my soul.

Solution?  PLARN!  WOOO!  (If you want some plarn, check out my tutorial or visit my Etsy shop to order some pre-made!)

 

does plastic shred as easily as fiber?

oh noes! Nina just watched "The Ring!" Halp!

<whew> looks like she's fine now... she wants to show you something real quick, though... *tee hee*

Anyway, plarn is an awesome upcycling adventure…you should totally try it!  We’ll see how long it lasts before my beautiful little kitten destroys her new collar!  (Any bets?)

In other news, I just watched Nina drag a fork into her secret under-the-bed lair (How did she get a fork?  WHERE did she get a fork?  Has she learned to open drawers already?  Why the heck does my kitty-bitty want a fork?).  I probably should not let her play with a fork, but I’m secretly impressed that she somehow got one from the kitchen all the way to the guest room without me noticing, so I’m going to let it slide.  This time.  })i({

 

Welcome to Earth Blanket

Finished shots of my nephew’s Welcome to Earth blanket:

Uhm… Nina may have wanted to test it for snuggleability…

Now we just hurry up and wait!  })i({
