It's so fluffy I'm going to DIE! :)

So I went to Vegas this weekend and we ended up going to Circus Circus for lunch. I remember it being the best place ever (next to Disneyland) when I was a kid because of all the toys I won! I was so excited because this time I wanted to win myself a unicorn.. mostly bc of Despicable Me.

Long story short, there was no unicorn and I found a turtle but failed to win that :( So I came back with the idea that I would make myself CUTER ones :) Since I couldn't find a pattern for a unicorn, here's my first attempt at creating one. I think it came out okay.

I used glitter yarn for the mane because you know, unicorns are magical like that. ehehe.
And here's my turtle.. I love turtles! :D

From the awesome book amigurumi two
Yay! Now I have to awesome-ly fluffy things. I'm so happy :)

Babies! :)

Everyone around me is having babies! YAY!! I love making cute baby things with super cute fabric from japan :) The blocks were intially supposed to be actual wood blocks from Michaels, but I've been having so much fun with applique I figured screw it! It would be waaaay cuter with all the extra fabric scraps that I had to make fabric blocks! And I think they came out pretty cute. A little big, but cute :)
I think by far this is my favorite fabric. Who doesn't love Alice in Wonderland?

 I love the Stitch fabric, it's so cute :)

This is the first blanket I've ever finished and I'm so proud of it hehe. I love the rippled effect, it reminds me of the ocean. I hope little Ivan will enjoy it.

Since baby Ivan resides in Poughkeepsie, NY, I shipped them the box and didn't hesitate to use my new stamps that I bought. I looooove them. So cute Ana is amazing it looks just like the amigurumi that I enjoy crocheting :)

So I was playing around on the internet, and found this link. 365 Dress for $365 This girl is AMAZING. Talk about inspiration. In one year she'll spend less on clothes than I do in a month. Which is sad but true. I am learning so much from her, maybe next time when I'm tempted to shop I should head for Goodwill instead of Anthropologie ;)

First Entry

Hello, so I decided to start a blog to chronicle the things that I like to do and explain to my friends why I'm such a square-y homebody. (Actually I'm not but they don't exactly approve of my "grandmother" hobbies hehe) Uh.. right now I have nothing.. haha but I'm have a lot of projects that I'm working on simultaneously so hopefully I can get some stuff up soon :)
