Happy to start blogging again and I hope this will be a more regular thing for me. I really enjoy writing and sharing all my creations with you. For my long time readers, thanks for being so supportive through out the years, even when I was out for like a whole year with barely any updates. This is a very happy new year update for me, I have been trying a lot of new things and crafts, designing some new and fun things, even attempted to make characters costume. I made my girls Pete the Cat hat and tail (“Pete the Cat” is a super fun series children books, the girls and us love it) and Poppy (from the movie Trolls) hat and dress for their school story book parade. I never do characters or cute crafts (just not great at them, so didn’t even bother to try). Surprisingly, they all came out pretty well and I actually enjoyed creating them. Lily (my younger daughter) even won 1st place for the costume contest for first grade. (Hurray!) She is super excited.
Alexis modeling her Pete the Cat hat, having a lot of fun reading the book while pretending to be Pete.
She is taking the modeling job really seriously, hid the mouth and pretended Pete.
I have been waiting on forever to design a mermaid tail blanket. I knew my girls will love it but I never found a pattern that I like it enough to hunt down the right kind of yarn to make it. Until this beautiful Caron Cakes yarn came out last year and I was like “this is it!”. I found the perfect yarn for my project. I decided to stop looking for other designers’ creations and designed my own Sophie mermaid tail blanket pattern for my little girls.
Caron Cakes Yarns are so beautiful, I stocked up on them when I could. Now, they have new colors came out and I need to hunt down the pistachio color, they are so popular and hard to get my hands on them.
