Long time no posts? Bad blogger am I! Read my post for a free surprise at the end :)

I am unsure of the reason blogger says I wrote this 6 days ago, today is October-14-2013 so please ignore the wrong date above (unless of course this is the doing of The Doctor, in which case I guess I'm a time traveler now!!)

Been a long while since I've been back to my blogging. As always life away from my computer has dominated my time. I've been on the busy road of life recently, my daughter had her first injury which required a trip to the ER and tests as follow ups. She is doing well and everything is alright as of now (whew).

Busy craft show coming up (Oct 19&20) and I've been crafting my fingers raw! I'll also being uploading pictures of all my creations in the near future. I have been trying out a few new designs. Crochet dreadlocks, yarn falls, and crocheted bobby pin hair pieces. 

Few sneak peeks of my designs: (Sneak Peak Pictures are not my best looking photos, excuse my late night pictures hehe)
(Steampunk hair clip $17 each or two for $30)
 (Hair falls $18 each)
 (Sister Kitties $15 each or both for $25) 

Now for being my loyal followers and reading this LONG overdue post there is a free gift below for you to check out...

One of the things that first draws my attention is the colors.

Recently I have been loving my rainbow yarns. Some patterns just look beautiful is self striping yarns!

Inspired by hippie designs I created a 13 point flower which I then altered into a wrist cuff with 3 buttons and 3 straps.

Chakra Zun Scarf

Forgive my delay at posting, my daughter and I have been sick and I haven't had the chance to post an update!

I finished my special Zun Scarf, which became a gift for my inspiration friend, the Chakra Zun Scarf!!

The scarf if created in the same way the other Zun Scarves are created. 2 skeins crocheted in rows carrying the yarn up the side 'braiding' it. I used one color so that the Chakra colors were the main focus.

Each Chakra color circle is hand crocheted and then hand sewn on with black yarn.

The scarf is approximately 8' long by 2.5" wide.

My give away ends soon! Enter your name for a chance for free digital scrapbook software!!

My Memories Scrapbooking GIVE AWAY!

Hello everyone!

I am going to host my first ever give away! The give away will run 2 weeks! The drawing will be held on October, 4th 2011.

Recently I was contacted by My Memories to host a give away of their scrap booking software. So who was I to say no? Since the holiday seasons are just around the corner I am especially excited to try this out! I know I am not the only one interested in digital scrap-booking. I have been waiting to do the perfect scrap book of all my creations, only I haven't actually sat down to do it until now!

I started using the program as soon as I downloaded it. I was amazed at how easy it was to get started. Not only does it offer you blank pages to start with, but you can start with their ready to go pages. Making it easy to just quickly fill in with your own pictures.

Personally I loved making my own pages. The program walks you right through all the steps. You can pick your background paper, you can pick where you want the photo (and if you want to edit the photo), and from there forward it's all fun and customized.

There website includes a large amount of Digital Scrap Booking Kits you can purchase to add on to your program, and the wonderful creators at My Memories even have a whole selection Free Digital Scrap Booking Kits to download and add to your collection!

I love playing with all the embellishments. It's fun to see what kind of appearance I can create. The pages I have started, are created to show off my creations. Take a look!

Now the fun part, you can win your very own free version of My Memories Suite. A $40 dollar program for free! (Who could say no to that?!) I am going to give you several chances to enter you name too!

But if you don't win, or you can't wait to win, I do have a coupon code just for you!

Spider Web (Glow in the Dark) Scarf

This scarf is made from a spiderweb pattern I attempted to recreate by looking at it. That black is shimmer yarn and the white is glow in the dark yarn. Each web is approximately 4 inches. 52 inches in total for the scarf.

Each Web created seperate and then joined together.

The scarf is all hand crocheted and designed by Melissa of MelzCreations.
