1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / My First Sweater! on: November 20, 2019 05:44:04 PM
Ive been crocheting off and on for about 17 years but only attempted a sweater this month. I found the pattern on Pinterest: https://pin.it/cg32uqv2tjogif. I used Yarn Bee (Hobby Lobbys brand) Breathe Deep. Its a very soft worsted weight yarn but I noticed too late that its hand wash only.  Angry

Anyway, heres some pictures:

Its half-double crochet.

Im super proud of this! Thanks for looking!

2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scarves for Cats (Cuteness Overload) on: November 09, 2019 06:55:50 PM

Not to be out-done with cuteness, here is Cleo modeling the cowl.

Heres Mercury modeling a color variation.

And Cleo showing off an infinity scarf.

If anyone wants a tutorial for either of these let me know and Ill post one.  Thanks for looking!
3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Scarves and a Scoodie (Modeled by My Cats) on: November 07, 2019 08:46:07 AM
After getting some bad news, my brain decided to turn to crochet.  I've made a couple scarves and a scoodie and am currently working on a sweater.  I've never made a sweater before so hopefully that will go well.  Anyway, here's what I've made so far.

Scarf made from Lion Brand Suede I found at a thrift shop, modeled by my chonk Mercury.

Scoodie!  I used Bernat velvet and while it is very soft and light, it is also a little floppy.  I added the "fur" to help it keep it's shape a little better.  Craftster really wants this image to be sideways.

Infinity scarf, also made with Bernat velvet.  They sure give you your money's worth with those skeins!  This one is modeled by myself and Cleo.  Craftster really wants this image to be upside down for some reason.

A close-up of the infinity scarf.

Sorry for the odd photos, I edited them in Craftster picture hosting and apparently it didn't work. Thanks so much for looking!
4  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Halloween Paper Succulent Arrangement on: August 25, 2019 07:44:40 PM
I love Halloween. And succulents. And my Cricut. So I made a paper succulent Halloween decoration.

Thanks for looking!
5  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Succulents on: August 12, 2019 07:51:56 PM
I've been having too much fun making paper succulents and flowers with my Cricut.  Here's some I did over the weekend.

This paper is shimmery and has metallic colored pencil accents.  For size reference this is a 4" embroidery hoop.

My coworker loved this and bought it from me.  It's in a 4x6 frame.

These are seriously fun to make.  Thanks for looking!
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Felt Succulents on: August 10, 2019 01:12:18 PM
I got a Cricut last week and I love the darned thing.  Also you can cut felt with it!  My dad had to have emergency gall bladder surgery yesterday (but he's doing fine) and I wanted to make him something.  So I thought I'd try these succulents I saw on Pinterest.  I found a nice plant pot at Hobby Lobby and glued in some river rocks to make it look fancy.

7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Completed Projects: General / Paper Flowers and More Cricut Crafts on: August 06, 2019 08:05:50 PM
I bought a Cricut because my husband said that's how all those people on the internet make their car decals and I was like "I want to make decals."  I thought the Cricut was still some lame die-cut thing like it was when it first came out and I didn't even think I wanted one.  I got it home and proceeded to make a card using the welcome tutorial.  Then I made some cut-outs for some ATCs.  Then I made some decals and even some iron-on things for my plain t-shirts.  But I had no idea that it could do pop-up cards and 3D paper flowers until I started poking around on Cricut Access and Pinterest.

Anyway, I'm sure you don't want to be bored with my life story and would like to see some pictures now.

I made this tonight- I think it turned out pretty rad.  The flower is 3D.

I also made these paper succulents.  I don't have a lot of scrapbook paper or cardstock right now so I just grabbed something green.

A sweet Kraken card that my co-worker is totally getting. I also made the nautical compass envelope you can kind of see.

And some roses.

So overall I'd say the Cricut is a good purchase and something I'll use a lot.  Thanks for looking!

10  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / One Little Bite Diamond Painting on: March 12, 2019 06:27:19 PM
Ok I forgot to measure this and Im too lazy to go do it, but its pretty big. Like poster sized I guess. This is the first painting Ive done with square drills (diamonds). It took me 4 or 5 weeks. You can sort of see the sparkles in these pictures. I got the kit from Diamond Art Club. I like them because they are US based and their kits are good quality.

Thanks for looking!
