11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Sugar Skull Earrings on: February 18, 2011 05:42:55 PM
I don't usually make jewelry anymore, but I was at a bead show recently and I found a string of these great carved howlite skull earrings.
So, I assembled them with love and here's what ya' have!   Smiley

12  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet'd Beanies and Cowl ! on: January 26, 2011 11:41:06 PM
I haven't posted in a long time. But, now that it's winter, I'm always tangled up in yarn! These are the most recent things I've made.
Most of my things are made with no pattern. They're pretty much just freeform. You can find similar patterns for the ribbed beanies on Ravelry.

Green Ribbed Beanie

Chocolate Button Beanie

Textured Pom Pom Beanie

Super Cowl

Thanks for checkin' out my stuff!
13  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Ribbed and Cabled Crochet Beanies and Slouch Hats on: September 13, 2010 08:07:33 PM
I made a ton of hats for Autumn and winter. I didn't use a pattern for any of these. Just lotsa FPDCs and BPDCs.
I think they turned out great!
I snagged some great alpaca yarn from one of the local fairs this years. So I got to make a bunch of great accessories with it. Examples  being the purple hat and the multi colored hat.

Thanks fer takin' a peek!

15  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Freeform White Rose Crochet Corsage Cuff on: July 01, 2010 03:24:03 PM
I thought it would be nice to make come classy but sassy and unique corsages with the intention for formal or non-formal occasions.
I made it with soft acrylic yarn and the flower was made using freeform crochet.
The back of it laces up like a corset. I thought that was a better excecution rather that making it a full cuff because it won't get as stretched out.


Thanks fer takin' a gander!
16  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / I gave an Ed Emberley tattoo on: July 01, 2010 11:06:23 AM
Ed Emberely is the reason I ever picked up a pencil. I spent every single day at the living room coffee table with 'The Big Orange Drawing Book'. If I wasn't sitting with the drawing book I was watching the 'Squiggles, Dots and Lines' VHS. I had every single one of his books. My favorite was always the orange ones. Then as my childhood years went past, so did Ed Emberely. Even when I wasn't drawing serious stuff, I always found myself drawing a skeleton with a top hat and a cane. It always progressed through the years with more realistic bones. Or if the was a spare piece of chalk on the tray in high school I'd scribble out a UFO.
In about 2007, after probably about 14 years of not remembering Emberley had existed, I was cruising through Barnes & Noble and I had noticed in the kids section, his big Halloween drawing book. I gasped. I sat down with it and looked at all the step by step drawing instructions on how to make, witches, cats, haunted houses, UFOs and that skeleton with the top hat and cane. My love of Ed Emberely was rekindled...

And so forth... I KNOW alot of people don't like 'scratchers' or non-professionals. But, my friend asked me to give him a tattoo. I was like 'gee whiz'! So, I asked him if I could do my favorite guy, rich uncle skeleton. I was given a professional gun and every thing was sanitary and dandy.
Here it is!! And, let me tell you, tattooing is not easy!

Whadaya think ?  Shocked
17  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Crochet Neo Victorian Style Fingerless Lace Gloves on: June 17, 2010 11:19:10 AM
Check out these super cool cuffs. I thought they were going to be difficult to make, but nope, they were pretty quick and easy. I used skinny merino/acrylic yarn and the little bitty B hook.
I grabbed a bunch of yarn last night so I can make 'em in a skillion more colors!

18  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Super cute baby dress and booties on: June 08, 2010 06:25:30 PM
I just love making these fantastic sets. They're so cute. This one is 100% cotton.
I made this one a tad bit longer than the others and the booties are a great finishing touch. Dontcha think ?


19  COOKING / Dessert / Strawberry Blackberry Buckle on: June 02, 2010 09:41:52 PM
I stumbled upon a fantastic looking recipe for Blackberry buckle. Ever since I saw the recipe, I thought about it everyday. Today I finally gave in and made it.
I didn't have the lemon juice on hand, so I used half of a teaspoon of vinegar. I was also short of big sugar crystals, which I think is pretty crucial for texture and taste. I sprinkled regular sugar on it anyhow. And, instead of 4 cups of blackberries, I only used 2 cups and another 2 cups of strawberries Roll Eyes

20  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Card wallets/Cellphone cases on: May 27, 2010 11:58:26 AM
I've been whipping out these mini clutches. They're fun to make and great for summer when you don't wanna carry around a big bulky bag.
They're made with mostly the bullion stitch and accented with vintage buttons.
