Christmas Recap

24 Jan

It happens every year.  I make tons of fabulous projects, then can’t blog about them because they’re going to be Christmas gifts and I don’t want to spoil the surprise. Instead of showing them one post at a time, I’m going to do an uber-post of this year’s gifts… hope you like it!

So, in case you were keeping track, that’s four scarves (green, yellow, and two not pictured), two snowman ornaments, five owl hats (a few not pictured), six or so oreo cookie ornaments, Hobbes, Chibi Moon, a zillion Christmas washcloth sets, and a Dr. Who scarf of epicness that was actually an Etsy order (doesn’t Husband look thrilled to be my model?).  There were a few other projects – some stone necklaces and such – but I forgot to take pictures of them.  Boo.  I’ll try to remember next time!  Merry Christmas!

Free Pattern Friday: Granny Star Ornament + Netflix Freebie

15 Oct

Hi friends!  Sorry I missed yesterday… I had a big post all set to go about my first ever visit to a Hobby Lobby, but then Husband called, and then I got to visit an adorable little baby, and then I got distracted, and then Zoltar overheated (again) and had to be put to bed for the day.  Please forgive me.  In the meanwhile, here’s the pattern for the granny star ornaments I made while in transit for Chibication.   Enjoy! })i({

 

super cute granny star!

Penguin Friend Ornament

13 Oct

It is unimaginably difficult to wait until Christmas to share my gift ideas with you all, so if you get this from me this year, please pretend you’ve never seen it before.  It’s too cute not to share.  })i({
