When doing swatches of these earlier i noticed my work was starting to arc. not terribly and i was able to massage[stretch] it into proper place for the most part. I had the right # of stitches per row but it seemed like the bottom row that went into the foundation chain were tighter than the rest of the rows even though the tension was pretty consistent all the way through...why could this be? Also when doing these stitches do I treat them as I would a normal double crochet since they are all made of dc's and variants of it? Like would I do a 3ch turning chain and skip over the first stitch as if I am doing a regular dc? and do my last stitches into the turning chain of the previous row? HH didnt totally address this and I didn't want to go further if I am doing something wrong. thank you in advance!

One of the reasons your working is arcing might be because your beginning chain is too tight.  Try using one size bigger hook just for the chain.  Yes you are right about the turning chains.  If the bobbles and puffs are made of double crochet than a ch 3 for turning is correct.  Yes you double crochet in the turning chain at the end of the row.  Good luck.

I always use a hook one or two sizes bigger for my starting chain. I have the same problem. You aren't doing anything wrong. A lot of people's work arches like this.

I like to do personal swaps now and again.

I knit, crochet, and make stitch markers.

Just pm me if you wanna swap. Smiley
