I'm Back! And I brought some whales!

Hello everyone! It has been so long since I have been around! But I have an excuse (like always....) First, I have been reading like CRAZY! literally.
Second, I am in the middle of starting a website! I am going to stop blogging here on blogger, move to a new blogging platform!
Third, I have been working on the project below, working it in-between the books I have been reading! So Here is my most recent project!

My Mom's cousin is pregnant, and expecting a boy! So I thought I would make him a little something! His bedroom theme is nautical, and the color scheme is dark blue, light blue, and green! so I make him a hat, using those colors!

(Notice the book in the background?!? ;D)
 And then, I thought I would make a something relating to the sea! so I make a baby whale,.... and then I thought, hey why not make a Mommy whale too?! So I did! here is the little pair!
Aren't they cute?!

Mommy whale

Baby whale (Look how tiny!)

 Well That's all folks! Hope you all have a splendorific day!
Also, I will post more information once I have finished setting up my new website! so stay posted!

Mini Baby Doll Granny Square Blanket!

 So I have been working on this for a few days, and I was able to finish it yesterday, Saturday is My Little sister's 5th Birthday, and I wanted to make her something, I just didn't know what.
Well My Mom mentioned a baby doll blanket because she LOVE baby dolls, and playing Mommy! So I picked some fun colors, and made this up real quick! And I hope she likes it! :)

Take care everyone and have an amazing day!

Granny square-a-day Project!

 Hey Everyone! So it saddens me that I haven't posted in a Month, and I have been telling myself everyday for a week, that I was going to post this, I just never came around to it... so here goes!

At the end of last year, My Mom told me about a challenge that was going around, where you make a crocheted afghan in a year, but crocheting a square everyday, or a square every week.
well, my squares are so small, (about the size of my hand,) that I figured that by the end of the year, I would have an enormous afghan!
So I thought about it, and decided that I would make a square everyday for six months, and make and afghan, and then start a knew square, and make a second one in the remaining six months!
So by the end of this year (hopefully) I will have one afghan finish, and a bunch of squares for a second one!
Hopefully I feel dedicated to this project and I keep it going..... I am already behind quite a few squares, so I need to take a day and crochet like ten of them....
And part of My problem is I have really be in the mood to read, like I am devouring books!
I went to the Library with my Dad and siblings last night, and I got a whole arm full of books, when I know I should be crocheting with my spare time, I plan on curling up in a warm blanket, and reading for hours on end. ah! Why can't I read and crochet at the same time??? I think if I ever was given the chance to choose at what I would like to multitask at, I would say reading and crocheting, since that is the biggest thing that I struggle with! Of course if I sat long enough thinking about it, I would probably be able to think of all sorts of things..... Well, back to business!

Underneath are pictures of the different color combinations I am working with. 
I don't know how I am going to assemble them as of yet, but I want to wait until all of my squares are done, and then lay them out and see what I think then!

The Blue that I am using is my favorite color yarn for the project! Its Red heart Aruba sea!
Here are links to all of the yarn colors I am using.
Cafe Latte
Aruba Sea

Spring Green

These squares are so simple! you basically crochet a circle, and then you work around the edges with the contrasting color.

I Love the Cafe Latte, and the Aruba Sea together, they are a great color combo!

Okay, so here are a few things that I thought I would show you guys!
This owl tin, is where I keep my buttons! Isn't it cute?!

I was making so many Christmas gifts for people, and one of the projects needed big buttons.
So my Dad went to the store, and bought a bag of all different sized and colored buttons.

 These ones up above are my favorites, some of the you can't tell, but they are textured! They are awesome!

He also had to buy me some new hooks since when we moved I lost all but one of mine! and for Months I have been using my sisters which doesn't make her happy..... So my Dad got me two different sets!

The one with the smaller hooks came with a pair of scissors that collapse!
I tried to take a picture of the Hook sizes, not sure how clear is is, so it came with:
 And the Bigger set came with
L-11 = 8.0mm

Well Bye for now!

Happy New Years!~2014!!!

Hello Everyone! Happy New Year! 
I can hardly believe that it is already 2014! This year has flown by so quickly!
I also hope that everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I am so sorry that I have not posted in so long! I have been so super busy! 
Christmas gifts, family gatherings, church gatherings... ect. So I have been planning this post for a long while, I just really have not had the chance, or motivation to get to it. 
So here it is! (Warning, it may be very long!)

Okay, so awhile back, (the second week of November) I posted about some dishcloths I had made. Well, I used that pattern some more, (a LOT more) and I made so many dishcloths! here are some pictures of the different color combos!

I made this first set for my Grandma, using three different shades of blue. 

These pink ones, I made for a friend of ours, my Dad works with her husband, and they have us over every year after Christmas, we order Pizza and play games! (Notice our Christmas tree reflection in the picture :D)

These Purple ones, I made for our pastors wife, since purple is her favorite color!

I made these orange and yellow ones, (The yarn color is carrot, and cornmeal) for a lady at our church, they have us over every year on Christmas day, and we eat Christmas dinner, play games, and exchange gifts. She also asked me to make a set for her future daughter-in-law, but I forgot to take pictures, I made them in the color frosted pine, which was like a mint green, and then an off white, with mint green, orange, and brown flecks.

My Sister bought me a necklace, and it came in this adorable little box! Those were my Christmas nails :) red and Glittery!
Here is the necklace she bought me! I Love it!
The family who's house we go to on Christmas day, each year, their daughter made each of us a no-sew blanket! I LOVE Mine! it has owls, and birds all over it, and it is the warmest thing! It drapes off of my bed, so it can cover my whole body! I Love it!
My Parents bought me the warmest slippers I have ever had! They are called Bobs, and Sketchers makes them!

The Lady who made me that blanket also gave us this! An adorable owl pillow!

Our pastors daughter gave me these! And I LOVE them! they are silver mustache earrings covered in rhinestones!
 I made this for the Lady who made my Blanket, sorry for the blurry picture.....

Okay, and the last thing, up above, is an ear warmer, that I made, and I am really quite pleased at how it turned out, since I made up the pattern for it!

So that is what I have been working on for the past Month, and I already am getting orders for more things I need to get done! So I am taking this week off, and am going to start working on more projects!

So I have been thinking about what my new years resolution should be, and I decided to share what a few of mine are!

1. Read the Bible through in a year, once, twice, it doesn't matter, as long as I do it.
2. Try to be in a constant state of prayer, everyday.
3. Be a Happier, and nicer and caring person.
4. Write 100,000 words or more for my story, this year, before November.
5. Complete the NaNoWriMo in November, and complete the 50,000 Words

Well that is all for now! Sorry for such a Long post, but I had a lot of catching up to do! :)
 Happy New year!

P.S. I am trying to think of something I can post about each week.... I would love some ideas! if you have any, leave them in the comments below! Thanks! :)
