Christmas Time

Getting ready for Christmas?? Need a beanie to keep your head warm during the holidays or something cute for holiday pictures???

Presenting the Poinsettia beanie!!

Prefect for the holidays' cold weather!!

A little bit of history - "So what does a poinsettia have to do with Christmas? One interpretation of the plant is as a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem, the heavenly body that led the three magi, or wise men, to the place where Christ was born. A Mexican legend tells of a girl who could only offer weeds as a gift to Jesus on Christmas Eve. When she brought the weeds into a church, they blossomed into the beautiful red plants we know as poinsettias, known as Flores de Noche Buena in Mexico (Spanish for "flowers of the holy night")."

Cornered Creatures

Some new friends have come to town.

These creatures are now living in the Creative Corner until they are adopted.

They each have different styles and personalities .
(they can even come in different colors - when ordered)

I'm looking for some good names for each of these crazy creatures... 
So if you have any fun names, please comment with your ideas.   :)

Creature #1 - has one large eye with a small "v" mouth and a 'v' design around the edge.

 Creature #2 - has two large eyes, poofy black hair on top, with a sweet smile and ear flaps.

 Creature#3 - has 2 bug eyes with a cute yellow button nose and two cute ears.

Creature #4 - has one large eye with long eyelashes, a two tooth smile and a matching bowtie.

Enjoy, CNW

Tye-Dyed Fun

Here is one of the first beanies I made for Bella to try on (even before the Boo Bear Beanie).  I decided I needed to make sure that I could actually make a beanie that would fit her head before I tried any of the more exciting and decorative hats and beanies.

It went by fairly quickly and was a great fit!!

She even rocked it for her 3 month old pictures

Even the most simplest of beanies can be so much fun when worn by the right baby :)

2nd Time's a Charm

Here's the back story.  My Great-Grandma Harney showed me how to crochet many years ago.  It usually was a simple chain and slip stitches back and forth.  Growing up I made clothes for my "Beanie Babies" and later on covers to protect my cell phone from the MULTIPLE times I dropped them... :)

But just recently, my older sister asked if I could crochet a hat from my niece.  She had seen some really cute ones online and gave me a challenge to complete a hat.  I had tried to crochet beanies before, but greatly failed!! But I took her challenge and ran with it.

Without any assistance I made hat #1...

Wasn't a perfect fit (was quite loose) and too big to the point I had to fold up part of the hat and had to make a draw string (blue crocheted chain).  My niece can pull it off, but it wasn't really what we were thinking.

The great thing about crocheting - it can be taken apart easily!!  It may take awhile to make and it isn't always fun to watch your work unravel, but the hat has now been transformed... (Don't worry the ear will be fixed) 

Sweet little "Boo" Bear!!
