Hello Kitty Mug Cozy

26 Jan

It’s my first order of the year, and isn’t it cute?

Hello Kitty!

A customer found the pattern online & asked me to whip one up for her… adorable!

The pattern designer asked that I not sell these little cuties on Etsy, so you won’t be seeing these on my shop.  She DID say she was okay with selling them at other venues, though, so if you’re interested just let me know!

Cute, cotton, and eco-friendly!  Good Kitty!

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!

Honey, We Need to Talk…

30 Oct

I’ve been distant.  I’ve been quiet.  You’re starting to wonder what’s going on with me, but when you ask I say, “Everything’s fine, don’t worry about it.”  You’re worried.  You wonder what happened to the several-posts-a-week me, and you’re starting to think you’ll never get the “old me” back again.  You’re starting to think I’ve been hiding something from you.

Welll…

… I HAVE been hiding something from you – something that’s been making me sick.  Something that’s been making me spend most of my days in bed or zonked out on the couch.  Something that’s been making me crave cashew nuts and ginger ale for breakfast…

 

It’s a baby!

Not this baby. This is an internet baby.

HOOOOOOOOOooooooRRRaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyy!  

 

After two miscarriages, two years, several expensive (and totally embarrassing) appointments with an awesome fertility specialist, some drugs, some herbal supplements, and some serious thought about adoption, Husband and I are happy to be welcoming our first child on or around April 26th of next year.  ❤

So, I’ve been spending most of my time lately, well, gestating. Today the little tidbit in my belly is the size of a navel orange (about 4.5 inches), and come the beginning of December Husband and I will find out which team we’ll be on (Edward or Jacob…errr… I mean… pink or blue…).  We’re thrilled (and terrified, and totally overwhelmed, and, you know, I’ve been weeping a lot)!

In the meanwhile, things over at my Happy Little Shop have been kicking into high gear – I’ve been working on orders pretty constantly for the last few months, which means I haven’t been making many *new* things, but rather filling orders for Snoopy, Nicholas the Bunny, and Charlie Brown, among others.  I’m in the middle of remodeling over there – check out my newly designed banner & avatars when you stop by – and I’m closing down for the last month of the year to reorganize things & get my 2012 product line up and running.

And, because of some fortuitously timed changes at work-work, I’ll be cutting back to half-time at the end of November, which will, theoretically, give me more time to commit my hookery (and gestate)!  Hooray!

So.  No, I don’t want to break up with you – I LOVE you!  But I am going to need a bit more space (unless you really want to hover over me while I revisit breakfast).  =)

 

Also not my baby, but So. Freakin'. Cute.

 

Cheers!
