Some More New Goodies

Here are some more of the new dolls that will be available ..... NEXT WEEK.

 Here is the last Final Fantasy Hoodies, but definitely be on a look out for some color variations and special edition dolls.
Here are the holiday Sparkle Dangos. Unfortunately you can't even tell that they are sparkly but take my word for it they are, and they are super cute!!
Things are real busy around here with me getting ready to start posting the new dolls, but really I enjoy making all the new designs. I plan on making more time for the blog and adding more family, craft and what not to it. I follow a lot of blogs and I love the Weekly Wears posts. I am not that stylish but I do have a style that is pretty unique (at least when I am not lazy and spend my days in yoga pants and sweat shirts). So I think every Wednesday I will be doing a weekly wears post. Just remember I have a pretty crappy camera that only seems to take good pics outside, and I am not very good at photographing myself. Either way it should be fun. Happy Monday All. :)

Outdoor layout mat, this was an old down feathered full sized mattress pad that we weren't using any more. So I covered it with outdoor fabric and now it is all set.

Vintage dolls that I am making for Rae for X-mas, I am not to great at making doll clothes so it is a bit of a challenge for me

Here is the other doll with some clothes, I plan on crocheting some sweaters for them also.
So there are just a few of the things that I have been up to lately enjoy. :)

Tunes I Have Been Rocking

 So I have been trying to get things back to normal around here, and nothing makes doing things like that better then listening to some great tunes. I have been playing these songs like non stop lately. Just love them, the videos are pretty good as well.

The Paper Kites- Bloom

Brooke Fraser-Something In the Water
I dance like a crazy women when I hear this song, it is such a great song. Can't be down when listening to this.

Brooke Fraser-Betty

The Honey Trees- To Be With You

Maps And Atlases- Solid Ground

So things here have been really hectic here. We were out of town for the Fourth of July weekend. Came home for three days and then were gone for close to a week up North for a friend's wedding. It was a lot of fun, but eight hours there and back was not that enjoyable. :p Then I had three days to get my sons birthday party together for this current weekend. I have been up to my eyeballs in balloons, scrapbook paper, and yarn. With all this I still had some orders and what not to get taken care of. So unfortunately the blog has been low on the list of things to do. Hopefully after this week of getting my house back in order and well just life back in order I can get some updated post of all the things and happenings around here.

Another Monday...Oh wait, it's Tuesday

Man is it Tuesday already. Some times my weeks crawl by and others I have no idea where they go. This week seems to be going faster then usual, since I was convinced that it was still only Monday. :) We had a good weekend here, finally starting to kick the bug that has been living at our house for the past month or so. Just in time to start really enjoying the nice weather. I have been busy with custom orders, designing some new things, and getting ready to give my home a make over. I have been going over colors and patterns and all sorts of stuff and I think I will finally take the challenge of making my home just how I wanted. We have been at this house for a year in August, so I guess it is time.:) So now all I need now is a trip or two to some flea markets, spray paint and a gallon or two of wall paint and I will be all set.

I will definitely post some before and after pictures, but I probably won't be doing any such things until a couple of weekends from now. Getting ready to spend a weekend up north for the holiday and then going up north again the following weekend to celebrate the nuptials of some friends of ours. So we have a pretty packed schedule as it is. For now I will leave you with some eye candy.

 I been trying to do some kind of drawing/ painting type thing a day. So the one above I did yesterday and the one below I did today. Can anyone guess what I plan on doing with these. :)

This little guy is a custom order I just did. It is Jiggler from Adventure Time. Pretty happy how he turned out. :)

Here is Doom all finished. Now I just need to do up the other two guys. Honestly I think he has got to be one of my favorite creations.

 Here is picture of a blanket I have been messing around with. I decided I wanted to make it a bit bigger so I will be adding about 20 more squares, and then I need to sew it together and do the border. So it is far from being finished but it is getting there. :)

And last but not least some pre-Fourth of July fun. Got to love the sparklers. :)

Decisions, Decisions

With all the new things I have been coming up with for the new shop, I have taken a good look at what it is I want to get out of this blogging thing. I mean I have done the "just family blog", that then became a mix of just oddities with me throwing some crafting things in there. Really it just became a big mess. So then I decided to just do a crafting/ work related blog, and to be honest it was just plain boring. I tried hard to keep all personal things out and solely focus on crochet things, and well I just didn't have enough things to blog about. I can only post so many pictures of the things I am crocheting and well I do a lot more things then just crochet. So I have been taking some time to really look at different blogs, some of them I have been following for quite some time and try to figure out what they did that was different. What I came down to is that I need a blog that has a healthy mix of both family, and work. I also need to come up with some type of "weekly post" that is fun and gives people a better understanding of who I am, what I do, and the people I love. Now that I have decided on what I want my blog to be, I just need to start to build that. It may be slow at first but hopefully in the next few months I will have everything under control and where I want things to be.

P.S. Just a warning, I am a terrible writer, I hate grammar and even with spell check I am still a horrid speller. Just don't say I didn't warn you. :)

And now I will leave you with some eye candy of what I have been working on lately. Some fun sketches, some new dolls, and just some randomness.
Newest Hoodie Doll, Totoro. Not to sure when I will be putting him up in the shop but hopefully soon. I am also working on some Final Fantasy Hoodies at the moment also.

This is the current face my daughter wares when you ask her to smile for a picture, I have no idea where she gets this from.

Here are both my littles enjoying some summer fun.

This is a sketch of my store mascot, I have yet to make a name for him

This is a custom order I just finished up, they actually have magnets in the sides so they can connect together.
Yummy Dango Number One

Yummy Dango Number Two

Here is a sketch I did of my daughter the other day. I was raining out and both kids wanted me to paint their pictures

And so here is the little man also

These little guys are my newest design. I drew them up last night, There names are Doom, Gloom and Muscles. I don't have a name for what kind of creature they are yet but that should be soon. I actually just finished drafting the pattern and making Doom today. I will post pictures soon. All I have to say is I love them lots.

Here is something I finished about a month ago, my Bomb Pop scarf by Twinkie Chan. Please forgive the blurry picture and yes that is me.

I finished these guys up this week also, my store mascot, he is a bit bigger then the normal Kawaii bears I make and I finally got around to making myself one of my Moogles.

This is a sketch I finished last night, I started about 7 years ago, but never finished, so now it is. :)

So there you have it. Hope that everyone has a great weekend. :)
