Work in Progress

I'm currently working on a new animal for the Etsy shop. Yeah! I have most of the components of the .... skunk done. But I'm not sure how I'm going to do the stripe. Hmmm. So it probably won't be listed until next week. But I'll see how it goes.

I also have some ideas for new duckies for my shop. And a special request I'll be making for my sister, a phoenix chick. (Or birdie maybe? It's a baby phoenix, so I would think it would be a chick. Hmmm)

On an unrelated note, it's supposed to get above zero here tomorrow. Yippee! It'll seem like a heat wave. It's been below zero as a high for the past 2 days.

Well, I should keep working. Stay warm everyone!

Red Valentines Duckie

I've kind of been on a duckie kick. So here is my latest, a Valentine's edition Duckie! I think it's quite cute and I was happy to have it done in time for Valentine's Day. I hope everyone likes it! I have all kinds of ideas for new Duckies. But I fear that I will end up with a Duckie army! Oh well, there could be worse things. So, in an effort to add a little variety to my life (and my Etsy shop), I am going to start making a different kind of animal today. I'll see how that goes!

Mom's Creations 2nd Edition

Continuing in my promotion of my mom's merchandise, above is patriotic heart shaped pin she made. There's more where that came from too! Also be sure to check out the snowmen merchandise in the shop. They're only available until January 31. Only 2 more snow babies need to find good homes!
I'm also currently working on a housewarming present for my sister's friend that has got me thinking about a new item for my store. I'm not sure quite yet though. As soon as I get done writing this post, I'll also be starting on a red duckie, special edition for Valentine's Day.
Keep warm everyone!

Mom's Creations

So I've been shamelessly self promoting my goods in the Etsy Shop. I figure it's about time I start promoting my mom's stuff as well. The pin to the left is one example. This can be found in the Etsy shop along with other wonderful things made by my mom. Homehooked is a mother-daughter shop.

Rubber Duckie, You're the one

Ok, so he's not a rubber duckie. But he is equally cute!! Meet the newest addtion to my Etsy Shop. I just finished him this weekend, so he is hot off the hook. Keep checking back for other additions to my amigurumi petting zoo! I have lots of ideas and these guys are really fun to make. I'm also making something for my sister's friend. And if it turns out good, you'll also see that in my shop. Stay tuned!!

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a wonderful New Year's Eve. I just watched the last Harry Potter movie with my family. I'm not much of a partier.

My goal is to make this blog, my website, and my Etsy shop better. My sister is working on a new background for my website, so it's a start!

Also be on the look out for new merchandise in the shop, such as needle felted pins and animals from a crochet petting zoo.

Have a great day!
