Duck, Duck, Goose

Yes, goose! I had a custom order on Etsy for a white duck that could be passed off as a goose. So I made a couple modifications, and I present the goose! I never thought of making a goose before. What a great idea! I also made mittens to go with the duckie and goose. They were much easier than I thought they would be.

In other news, I tried to dye my hair a "dark copper", which I thought would be a brownish orange. Boy was I wrong! So, this morning, I tried to dye my hair "dark ashe blonde". That only toned the orange down slightly. At least I don't feel like my hair is ridiculously bright any more. Oh well, live and learn! With any luck, the color will fade fast.

Baby Gifts Done!


Yay! The baby gifts I had to make are now done. One of my friends is a huge pug fan and has a couple herself. She's getting the pug, of course. I got the pattern on Etsy. The other monkeys and bunny are my own design. I'm glad one of my friends mentioned she was decorating the nursery in a jungle theme. The monkeys were fun to make. The blue monkey was the last gift I made. I think he turned out better than the pink one. But anyway, it was nice to mark these off my list.
Now I'm going to start on a custom order. It'll be nice to be able to restock my Etsy shop too.

Hopping Down the Bunny Trail


Isn't she cute? With her Easter bonnet, and her pink nose, and her big bow. How can you resist her? This is the newest creation by my mom, the creator of the Snow Babies. I love how they turned out.
I promise, there will be new Duckies coming. I just need to finish the last monkey of the baby gifts. In the meantime, I have two other bunnies to list. Stay tuned!

This and That

Sorry for the lack of posting. Not much exciting has been happening lately. My lack of shop updates is because I have been trying to get four baby gifts done. I have two of the four done so far. Yay! Now I'm working on a pink monkey. I have another bunny to make too. I'm thinking of trying to sell a bunny in my shop. But I'm not sure with the new lead regulations and stuff. I'll see.

I've been reading a really good book I got for Christmast called Remember Me? It's by Sophie Kinsella. She is the author of the Shopaholic books. I actually am liking Remember Me? better than the Shopaholilc books. But I still have over half of the book to go.

I should get to work. I'm trying to get the baby gifts done and a birthday gift for my older sister. Then I can add new items to my shop. Yay!

Catching Up

I hope everyone had wonderful Holidays. Well, it's a new year, and I have a new duckie in my shop....Binkie the Clown Duckie. He is really cute. He turned out good. I hope everyone else likes him too. He's so bright and cheerful.

You may have noticed a new option on my blog. I now have a mailing list you can sign up for. I'll let you know before everyone else when I'm going to have sales at my site. I'll also let you know any news regarding Home Hooked.

Well, that's all the news I can think of now.

Happy New Year Everyone!
