I have 443 posts here. In one year. That is more than once a day.
Dude. I need to get paid to blog. And none of that payperpost stuff.
Just someone to pay me to blog. About me. And my family. And my trials and tribulations.
On another note, I emailed Donna Downey last night (she is in my blogroll over there). She is an icon in the scrapbook world like Ali Edwards and Becky Higgins. She goes around the country, teaching classes, and sometimes travels internationally. She is who I want to be. And she is 35, people. 35.
So I saw that she was still knitting toys, and I want to get the book she is working from because she has turned out some cute things in there. So I decided that I needed to share the obsession with this Amigurumi crochet.
I have made these two things in the past week:
It really is a lot of fun. The doll ... she was a PITA to sew together because she was in all these pieces, and I just don't have the patience to do that. She was definitely a labor of love.
I am now making a mermaid for the Monkey from another pattern maker, and her things are ADORABLE. So I decided that I needed to let Donna know about the craze.
She immediately emailed me back, telling me that she had JUST purchased some patterns from that same pattern maker last night.
Great minds think alike.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
