Shiver Me Timbers!

Captain Rum Duckie has come ashore! He's brought his loyal parrot with him. He may not be the most dreadful pirate on the high seas, but he is probably the most adorable. Welcome Captain Rum into your house!

I also finished another little girl named Jasmine. Once I complete her photo shoot, she'll make her debut in my shop. Also be on the look out for another currently un-named girl that I'm working on now. I've made some adjustments to my original pattern that hopefully will work out. I'm so excited making her. She is definitely more my style.

Well, enough blogging, now to crocheting! Have a great weekend!

New!


New line coming to my shop. Polly is the first doll in a new line of little girls I am adding to my shop. They are really fun to do. I'm excited to do more. Polly's clothes were made separate and are a 2nd layer over the amigurumi. Her hair is also a separate layer. I'm very happy how she turned out.



New waterfowl in my shop. A goose! I don't know why I didn't think of it before I had the custom order for a goose. Oh well. I have lots of ideas for different geese that will hopefully migrate to my shop in the coming weeks.
Another new thing is new and hopefully better pictures. I finally decided to read the book that came along with the camera. It's amazing what you can find out. With any luck, better pictures will help me get more traffic to my shop. Time will tell!
Tomorrow is the start of the Nascar Sprint Cup season. I can hardly wait! I'm hoping either Jimmie Johnson, Kasey Kahne, or Brian Vickers can win the Daytona 500. But if Jeff Gordon wins, I'll be fine with that too.

Little Red Riding Hood Duckie

Here comes Little Red Riding Hood, off to Grandmother's house she goes. She can wear her hood up or down, depending on the weather. Little Red Riding Hood is one new addition to my shop this weekend. I also listed a Duckie wearing bunny ears for Easter. He/She was quite popular last year, so I brought it back! I'm also working on two other items for my shop. You should see at least one new listing next weekend, if not two or more. Time will tell.

Don't forget to check out the cute Easter/Spring Bunnies currently in my shop. Get them before they hop away!

In other news, I now have my 6th string on my guitar. So I can play it again. Yay! My parents' are dog sitting this week for me since I'm going to a play in a nearby town Tuesday. It would be a really long day for Dinky to be home alone while I'm at work, then that night too. So now it's really quiet here. I'm sure he's keeping my parents busy, though.

I should keep working, or wind down before bed. Whatever I end up doing.

Keep checking the shop for new updates!

That Awful Sound You Hear?


Is me attempting to play guitar! I recently sold my blue Squire guitar to my brother so I could get this awesome Atomic Pink Daisy Rock guitar! It's really pretty, I love it. It's also smaller, which actually does make a difference. Unfortunately, the guitar is currently silent as it currently only has 5 strings instead of 6. I keep breaking my high E string. I'm going to try a heavier guage string tonight. Atleast I know how to change strings now! My younger sister also bought a guitar last weekend. She's doing really good with hers.
In crocheting news, stay tuned, I hope to have 2 new Duckies in my shop this weekend. Fingers crossed! I also gave my first crochet lesson at work yesterday.
