1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / What do the foxes say? on: November 08, 2013 11:38:31 AM
Like most of the world we have been obsessed with the Ylvis YouTube sensation- What does the fox say? (http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jofNR_WkoCE&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DjofNR_WkoCE)

When Halloween rolled around there was really no question what our costumes would be.  Finances are tight so we headed for the dollar store and $14 later we had - some feather boas, an orange towel, some dusters, garland, face paint and two masquerade masks.  Here's what we came up with:

And we even had a little boa left over for a cat costume - Marilyn Monroe?

It was a really fun evening.  Folks kept coming up to us and singing their favorite lines from the song. LOL
2  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Colorful Rainbow Baby Sweater on: March 07, 2012 06:21:57 PM
My bestie from back in HS just had a baby.  Since I moved to the Bay Area this year I thought something tie-dye would be appropriate.

I used a patter from a vintage crochet book I bought years ago and made some modifications to insure I had enough yarn.  It was just one skein!

Closer Up


I would love your thoughts!  Thanks for looking.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Mittens for Mom on: March 07, 2012 06:16:54 PM
I promised my my a pair of mittens like 5 years ago back when I was an avid crocheter.  The promise has been bugging me because I never fulfilled it.  Then I saw this pattern: http://www.knittingdaily.com/media/p/30979.aspx and I decided to try it.

I am a novice knitter - I've only made scarves in the past.  I had to size it down for my mom's small hands, so it was a challenge.

Would love your thoughts and advice...Thanks for looking.

Awesome!  It's a great book.  The fashion photos are amazing.  My book was missing a few pages too, so someone may have snatched some of the good patterns.

I just posted another project from the book here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=339036.0

Thanks for commenting!
5  CROCHET / Amigurumi: Completed Projects / Vintage pattern turtle on: February 21, 2010 07:38:25 PM
The first pattern I fell in love with from my vintage crochet book was this adorable turtle.  I made a few modifications and came up with this.

Because I liked to take things apart as a child, I made the shell removable.

I also made this little matching hat.  The original pattern was for knitting but I used this basket weave crochet stitch instead.  Yes, Yeltsin is modelling for me.

Thanks for looking.  Please comment.

My MIL gave me a ton of knitting supplies and this pattern copied from her Martha Stewart Living: http://www.marthastewart.com/how-to/dobbs-ferry-knit-cowl.

This was my third knitting project.  I only took the one photo with my phone of me looking grumpy.

Would love your comments.  My next project is a baby sweater.  Wish me luck!

I've been trying to knit off and on for years.  I keep going back to my default crochet.  I was recently given a ton of knitting needles by my MIL and gave it another go.

Here is my second knitting project.  The first project was a very very wonky scarf.

Would love to hear your comments.  Thanks for looking!
8  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Vintage pattern gloves on: February 21, 2010 07:43:37 AM
I've made mittens and fingerless mittens but never gloves.  I thought I'd have to learn knitting before I could make gloves.  This winter while it snowed in NYC, I was in Los Angeles and I stumbled upon a great vintage crochet book marked $1.  The woman actually charged me $2.50 for it insisting I should pay it because it was a charity shop. Huh  But that's another story all together.

This is my first project from the book and my first attempt at gloves.

As you can see the photos in the book are incredible.  It really takes you back to the early 80's.  This one in particular features fake snow in the couple's hair.

If you can't see the photos, visit: http://picasaweb.google.com/maritzainnyc/Craftiness#

Thanks for browsing!

The crocheted snape doll is so cute.  Great Job!

For all you Snape fans out there...
I wanted to post the link to the amazing artist who create the Snape on the shirt I made for HotBettie.  I wish I could draw/paint/etc. but I am much more crafty than artsy. http://snapesnogger.deviantart.com/art/goodbye-59965306

Just wanted to chime in with a thank you to HotBettie for the awesome package.  I was going to post last night but my camera battery was dead.  Thanks for posting both packages.

And...thank you, thank you, thank you for the awesome package.  You are an amazingly talented artist. I can't hand paint a thing.  The box & t-shirt are gorgeous. 

Also, I absolutely adore the lightning bolt felted bag.  It's incredible.  I think Harry & Ginny are now my favorite couple based on the cute journal.  The magnets are already on my fridge.  They are great.  i have to learn how to make those.

The wand is also AWESOME.  Your nephew is quite talented as well.

BTW-the candy has been decimated.  Glad you snapped a pic before sending it.
