Snooooooooop!

1 Aug

…a custom order from My Etsy Shop (oh yeah, I’m still rolling with the Etsy, don’tcha know)…

Senor Snoop is a whopping 8 inches tall, and I’ll be honest, my favorite part of him is his teeny tiny Snoopity little tail…

He likes big butts and he cannot lie...

 

Now then. I’ve somehow got to translate this pattern, which you can find for free HERE (thanks, BearBuns!) into about half its current size so I can finally, FINALLY finish the Peanuts series I started for my brother for his Christmas Gift.  I’m only 7 months behind.

Here are the little guys I’ve designed so far:

-Charlie Brown

-Linus

-Sally

-Lucy

See?  I’m making progress!

…Want more Snoopy?

I made a few minor changes to BearBuns’ pattern – I added a tail and simplified the legs a bit – but the pattern is COMPLETELY adorable, right?

Snoop's MySpace Profile Pic... he's so Emo...

 

Cheers!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m Back, and I <3 my daD!

Great news, friends!  My project is finally, FINALLY finished!  Since it’s a gift you’ll have to wait a bit to see; I don’t want to ruin the surprise.  T-minus two weeks until you can see the lovely pictures!

In the meanwhile I’ve been working on just a few things, including these:

how do you make crochet manly? Why, put some whiskey inside, of course!

For Father’s Day this year we got the dads (daD and Dadio, as they like to call themselves) some really awesome whiskey stones.

brown bow = totally manly, right?

And, since it seemed weird to get them whiskey stones without whiskey, we got Dadio a bottle of his favorite beverage and the daD a bottle of something new to try – honey whiskey (which, by the way, is DEEEEElicious)!

Dadio's whiskey pops its collar LIKE A BOSS.

Do you think the dads will forgive the girlie packaging?  I hope so.  =)

Happy Father’s Day to all you dads (and grandpas, and uncles, and soon-to-be dads, and you know, all of the awesome male role models floating around out there).  We love you!

Ninathrone.

See that chair?  It used to be my favorite chair. So comfy. So comforting. So full of goodness and snuggles and warm fuzzies…

I can haz throne?

Now it is my Nina Kitten’s favorite chair.

She has lurvs for the chair (and yes, she’s also claimed my favorite Christmas present– Sad).

When I toss her off the chair (in a gentle, loving way, of course) so that actual people may sit on it, she naps elsewhere (though she does it with a cranky look on her face, don’t you think)?

cranky Nina is cranky.

I know it might be hard to recognize, but that kitten is giving me her best put-out look because I’ve forced her to sleep on her own bed instead of on my favorite chair.  I’m so mean!

See how she glares at me out of the corner of her eye?  Hmm… I wonder… is it over-indulgent of me to purchase a new chair for myself so that Nina can maintain her attachment to the Ninathrone?

It’s possible I’ve gone round the bend.  But seriously… can you blame me?  Nina Simone celebrated her 7 month birthday last Friday, and she is still the most adorable kitten in all the land, isn’t she?  I mean, isn’t she?  =)
