You got to hug her?! How wonderful! This is a great way to store the special memory.

Yes. I made a scrapbook for her and gave it to her. Her assistant took our picture and she said, "You've got to get one of her hugging me, because she so sweet." Smiley
And, thanks everyone for the nice comments.
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Coffee Cozy - 1st time without a pattern on: May 18, 2015 03:47:24 PM
This is the first time I've ever crocheted anything without a pattern. I just looked off a picture I found online.
3  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Scrapbooking: Completed Projects / Wynonna Concert Scrapbook & more (pic heavy) on: May 15, 2015 10:23:53 AM
I created a scrapbook from photos and ticket stubs taken at Wynonna Judd concerts I attended. I also created a frame from photos taken when I met her and made a Wynonna doll in honor of the concerts and meeting her. If one thing needs to be chosen to be entered instead of all of these, then I would like to enter the scrapbook.

It says cherish the moment. Can't really read it in the pic.

ticket stub in the top corner of the page. Couldn't see it to well in the pic of the whole page.

It says memories in that bottom left and has some things about what happened written on the tag on the bottom right.

Ticket stub is in the top left corner, just not too clear in the pic. and says lovely day on the top left.

It says "Only passions, great passions can elevate the soul to great things." on the top right.

the tag says "One Sweet Day" and there are pink butterflies going up the right side above the tag.

Wynonna doll and frame. The top right corner of the frame has the meet and greet pass that says "Wynonna's guest" on it and the bottom left has what she said to me and what happened.

When I crochet hats the increase stitches are always higher than the other stitches. You can see where I put the two stitches in one for the increase because it sticks up higher. Also, where you join the rounds with a slip stitch it always seems to stick up higher than the rest of the stitches. I have a couple of hats I made where the hat comes almost to a point where the join stitches are. It's supposed to all be the same height, even the join stitches. Why do the increase stitches and join stitches end up being higher than the other stitches? It makes each round seem uneven and like I said a couple of times made there be a point to one side of the hat where the join stitches were. How can I fix this problem?

Also, if I have a pattern that says to use a 2.5 hook size and the smallest size I have is a 3.75 hook how can I use the 3.75 hook to make this or is it possible for it to turn out the right size if I use a larger hook?
5  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Re: Bunny Slippers on: April 17, 2014 07:54:52 AM
Tank you so much!!! Cheesy I saw a pattern for a pair of bunny slippers for babies and have been looking for a pattern for adult ones since. I have not been able to find one anywhere and was just going to use a regular slipper pattern and add bunny ears and a face. Now i can actually make a bunny slipper. Just found this through a Google search and so glad I did.

I do have a question though. On row 4 it says sc in the next 10, repeat *to*. Does that mean you repeat the part of row 3 that is between the *and*? Also every time it says repeat *, is that also meaning to repeat from *to* from row 3?

Good idea. I will try posting a few things and price them so I can have them as free shipping. Thanks.

I was thinking of maybe starting to sell some crocheted items on Etsy. I was thinking coffee cozies/ mug cozies, all different kinds like ones here: http://pinterest.com/forhazel/mug-cozies/; coasters (possibly using these squares as coasters: http://zoomyummy.com/2012/09/20/crochet-3d-flower-squares-revisited/); head bands with flowers; coin purses like these: http://www.repeatcrafterme.com/2012/04/crochet-coin-purse.html and little purses like this: http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80313AD.html; etc. Just things that are kind of easy and don't take too long to make so I could make several if they happen to sell and so I could have a variety of things to offer. I may make stuff like amigurumi animals, scarves, and whatever else I happen to find patterns for that I like later on if I feel like sticking with something for a while (I tend to like crocheting things that don't take too much time to make so I don't get tired of just working on the same thing all the time).

I'm wondering if it would be worth it to start a shop on Etsy for crocheted items. I searched for crochet on Etsy and there were thousands of results. So, would it even be worth it to make crocheted items and try to sell on Etsy with so many of them already on the site (would the items sell)? It does take a lot of time to crochet items and I wouldn't want to make several items and then they don't sell on there, then be stuck with the items and no use for them (after spending the time making them). Any thoughts on selling crocheted items on Etsy would be appreciated. Thanks.

Thanks for the ideas. I found some easy patterns for a coffee cup cozy, a mug cozy, and a water bottle holder and am making 10 of each. Got almost all of them done, just a few mug cozies and water bottle holders left to do. If I have any yarn left I will make some of the ponytail holders.
I just might use the idea of scrubbies, coasters, garland, bracelets, and small amigurumi animals for an etsy shop. Thinking about maybe doing that.

I would like to make some crochet items to sell at a town wide yard sale that is coming up at the end of this month. Short notice I know, but I just thought of this. What are some quick and easy things to make and sell? Something that doesn't take too much yarn and is really quick to crochet that people would actually buy? I am thinking maybe coffee cup cozies, but not sure if those would sell too well and not sure what else I could crochet to sell. Any ideas would be appreciated.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Valentine's Day / Re: What are YOU giving your valentine? on: February 11, 2013 11:48:13 AM
This year I made a framed picture I drew. I wrote "Love without reason lasts the longest" and then drew some flowers around the words and framed it. I also made a card from a printable pattern on Martha Stewart's website that was of a train. I made a little envelope and put a note in it and glued it to the little train car on the picture. I also printed some blank Valentines coupons and I'm writing things on them like, "Will watch an action movie with you", "breakfast in bed", etc. and decorating the front with some scrapbooking paper scraps and little letters I have. Will also get some candy as well this week.

For my niece, who is 5, I am making her a little mailbox using this pattern: http://www.simplymodernmom.com/2010/01/special-delivery-paper-mailbox-tutorial-and-pattern/ and decorating the paper myself with hearts and such. I'm putting in a card I made that says "You are tops in my book" and has a slit above the words to put a little bookmark. For the bookmark I cut out 2 little hearts from a pair of old jeans then sewed around it so that it has a pink outline and put stuffing in it. I'm making a beaded bookmark then attaching the heart to the end of it. I'm also putting some Hershey kisses and a Hershey bar (with a wrapper I am making for it... drawing it with the word "Sweetheart" on it and some hearts) in the mailbox.

For my mom, I made her a card that looks like a mailbox and cut out the lid so that the flap opens and I'm making her a beaded bookmark and putting it in the hole of the mailbox on the card.

For my 2 aunts I'm making a drawing and framing it for them (not sure what they will say just yet), won't see them for a while yet (they're coming to visit sometime in March they said), so I still have a while yet on theirs. Also making a card, not certain which one yet (might make the mailbox one and make them a bookmark as well to put in it).
