Pictures picture and more pictures!

YAY!!! I finally got a USB cable for my camera! Fry's Electronics is a wonderful place.
So now, some photos......
First of all, here are some knitting notecards I picked up from the $1 bin at Michaels... so cute, and so cheap!


A few weeks ago was the birthday of my lovely cousin Erin.
For her birthday I made her a few beaded necklaces.....
A triple strand silver pearl, iolite, and garnet.

Single strand white pearl and hematite.

A copper pearl, rose quartz and moss stone.

Silver pearl and a sparkly green stone that I can’t remember the name of.

I also made a charm for her cell phone with Swarovski crystals and a crab since she’s a cancer.

I’ve also crocheted a few things recently, and who better to model them for me than my baby cousin, the little diva in the making, Janae....
First is a black hobo bag...

Another hobo bag, this time I decided to use brighter colors and went with baby blue and lime green...

I also made a poncho with matching hat for Janae using butter yellow kitchen cotton with a light blue eyelash yarn for the trim. I thought the blue would really bring out her eyes. Here she is, showing us some of her diva poses....


And finally, my sweet baby girl. Madeleine. I know that I may be a bit biased, but I do believe that she is the cutest puppy ever.

Hi, I just found your site using the next blog button, and have been browsing.

I'm impressed with the different crafts you do...I never seem to have time to get beyond cross stitching (though I do hours and hours of that). And, cute dog!

Excellent blog! I give it an A+ with a Gold Star!! I'll be creating a blog on playstation 3 soon, in the meantime if you want to review my website on ps3 game cheats, i'd really appreciate it!

Ooohh...Nice! I'm jealous you were able to do all that. I'm so horrible at making anything which is why I can only crochet scarves!

Kimananda - Thank you! I do claim to have "craft ADD" - I'll make a few beaded necklaces or earrings as gifts or something and then I'll see a cool crochet pattern and get distracted from my beading to crochet something. I've done a bit of cross stitching, but not for a while, hmm.....

Anon - Thank you! I don't have a PS3, but thanks again for the invite!

GGG05 - Thank you! My great grandmother taught me to crochet a chain when I was about 6 (I think she was just trying to keep me out of her hair). I taught myself from there when she passed away about 8 years ago - I think it was my way of grieving the loss of her. Anyways, I love to crochet and am reminded of her everytime I pick up a hook.

WOW - you are the crochet QUEEN! I'm SO jealous. Those are the cutest bags ever. And the necklaces, I'm so impressed! I guess I should go attempt to knit whatever it is that I'm attempting to knit! Thanks for checking out my blog, and commenting! You rock! yours is great too!
