I recently acquired a long frame that I intend to use for future artist alleys. I've seen lots of people use fancy frames to display jewelry and they look so nice. I figure this would be idea for showing off my stuff too since it elevates the product and puts it in view. Let's be real, my table set up was terrible. Hopefully this will be more attention grabbing.

Palm Sized Fluttershy

I took a break while crocheting to crochet. Made this while waiting for a customer to approve of my progress on her Dororo amigurumi. Now that I finally have yellow I can make other animals [like birds!]. I could have been a bit more creative though.

Kawaii to Kowai

To get out of doing a Flash animation for my artist and computer class, I said I knew how to use it [which i sort of do...]. In place of Flash, I had to learn Dreamweaver, which I still barely know how to use. I learned enough to put a 4 page website together though! If I actually had it available online I'd link it. I can however share the artwork I drew up for it!

The teacup above was really just a last minute picture I put together since I didn't know what to put on the main page and needed to fill space...That's why it's so sloppy and generic.

Collars and Sparkles

After a sudden urge to crochet a collar without a pattern, I did it. I did however have to look up how to do ribbed stitching with crochet. Just crochet in the back loops. I'm sure I looked this up before, but at least now I know for sure.
Made the above collar in one night, around 6 hours maybe? I don't know. It's still not done, I don't have buttons for it. My boyfriend did wear it at the Haunted Chessboard party, and it was held together with two flowers on a wire. It needs 4 buttons though...I don't know what I was thinking.

Crafty Package Time!

Let's make Crafty Package Time a thing. Kind of like Happy Package Time [even though that isn't a thing here either...], but with craft specific packages. So...mostly yarn. It won't be a regular thing of course, because I can't afford to go buying a bunch of craft stuff all the time, but every once and a while a big package post might show up. And I'm making a tag for it. YEP.

The giant package! Bow for size reference.
