Craft Fair

Ara DiAnn and I are getting ready for a Craft Fair this weekend in Keller, TX.

We decided to have a before the day set up to figure out how we want to set up our tables.

The kitchen table isn't quite as big as the tables we will have, but it was nice to have at least a trial run.
(Thank you Ara for your "handy" assistance with my sign :) )

We are getting the rest of the things done this week to be ready for Saturday.
I will be selling my different crocheted items, including hats, fingerless gloves, head bands, nativity sets, and hair clips.  Ara D will be selling cute and fun wooden signs and her handmade dollhouse furniture.

If you would like to come check it out and support MOPS of Northwood, we would love to see you there!!

Special Request

For my sister's birthday, she made a special request.

She wanted a Ferdinand the Bull, that could sit in the back seat of her vehicle, Ferdinand.

So here he is..

I DO!!
And Yes, I did spell that correctly.

It is a combination of Dimples and "GOGGA" (What Bella says when she sees them - very excitedly)

They are my newest wide eyed, antenna-ed amigurumi creation. 

This started with me making a Doll for a Bella that we could put a Bell in. 
Enjoying that first attempt, the Gimples were created. (Although these guys DON'T have bells in them)

My sweet 10 month old niece has her favorite (the purple one) and growls with excitement when she gets her hands on him (pic below - I will be getting video of this soon - it is just too cute!!).  

Even when she comes to my room, "GogGa?" as she looks to my shelf where they currently reside. 
(She doesn't come to see me any more :) )

I do find it interesting that according to Urban Dictionary, Gimples is "the cute form of gimp. Used on things that are so ugly that they're cute."  

Which I Think Definitely Works For These Funny Fellows. 

 These crazy looking creatures are currently for sale in my ETSY store.
They sport cute overalls with a pocket on the front to hold on their or your child's special items. They even have (permanently attached) buttons to hold up their suspender straps. 

They are crocheted with Red Heart and Caron One Pound yarn. They are filled with LOVE and Crafter's Choice Dry Fiberfill, which is 100% polyester fill and non-allergenic.

Gimples measure approximately 15 inches from top of head (not including antennas) to the tips of their toes. They are the perfect size for little hands to get a hold of.

These little guys are looking for a good home to go and to bring joy to a child.

You can even purchase a matching beanie to cover your child's head as they play with their Gimples. 

If you have any questions please let me know!  Other colors are available too.

Long Time

It has been too long since I have posted on here... Please forgive me!

I has been busy around here.

So here is the latest addition to the Creative Corner Collection.

Fingerless Texting Gloves.

It has been cold around here - but I can't use my "smart" phone without my fingertips - so here is the solution!!

My mom uses them at work too.  It is a lot easier to type on her computer, but keeps her hands warm at the same time in her cold office.

I made a few for Christmas and had a request from my sister too, in all different colors and all different lengths for the cuffs!
