Currently... (11-20-14)

Currently...
Typing as the dialogue from Thor drifts up the stairs.

Regretting...
That I don't post on here very much. 

Thinking...
About why it's so much easier to post on my personal blog. Because I put in part of myself. (I really ought to do that with this blog as well)

Dreaming...
Of days when I am not so focused on useless nothings

Wishing...
I wasn't so forgetful, so irregular

Contemplating...
On whether to send a friend an epistle that is heartfelt but foolish

Feeling...
Petty and childish, but wanting a friend to talk to

Thinking...
That maybe this is a silly thing to post and I should just delete it. Right now.

Deciding...
That maybe I should send that email to my friend. Maybe it will make me feel better. Maybe not. 

Worrying...
That maybe tonight will be like the last several nights, when I lay awake in bed and think about what friends can I trust in? Who is for real?

Latest Creation (10/21/14)

Hello, lovlies! I realize I'm not really updating this blog as I should, and I need to step it up. I tend to post more on my personal blog, Reflections of the Heart; it just comes easier to me. 
But I have decided that I will either pick up the pace with this blog or close it down. Fortunately for you who enjoy seeing these posts, I have grown rather attached to this little blog and I would absolutely hate to delete it. :)

So here is my latest creation...
 




 A cupcake hat!








This is the first time (to my remembrance) I have attempted to make a cupcake hat, and I'm so glad I tried! My cousin and friend Lydia bought it for her friend's baby. :)
You can see the sprinkles, right?
My grandma used a Cheerio Kid as a model, lol!  XD

Current Projects (10/4/14)

So I posted this post on the Reflections of my Heart blog instead of this one (all accidental, of course). So here it is again!

So recently I've been crocheting a lot more than usual (no, I don't normally make one hat a day). I thought I would post about different products I've made lately, with pictures, of course! :)


Here are some owl sleepy masks I made; both of them sold at the craft sale I went to last Saturday. :)
Which do you like better? The one with its eyes open or the one winking? Or do you think they would be cuter with both eyes shut?


I also made a Nemo hat on request; it was a bit more difficult than I expected. :P


I have got to buy a styrafoam head one of these days. My arm doesn't work very well. :P

As I mentioned earlier, I went to a craft sale with my mom last Saturday. It was pretty exciting, it being my first craft sale to have my own booth. We managed to sell quite a few hats from the 8WC, all the profits from which went to the Master's Home.
It's really crazy how we raised over $130 for the orphanage, don't you think? ;)

Yes, I'm still freaking out about it. XD

My Current Projects

Hello again! Today I'm going to post some of the projects I've been working on. I have been crazy busy, but somehow I always end up crocheting. Even when I don't have any spare time to do it. :P
I have only gotten a few orders lately; not that I mind. I'm a little glad I haven't gotten any more than I have because I might have gone out of mind! XD

An order for a pink owl hat. This one is cuter than the last one. :)


An order for a tiger hat, which I already had made for the 8WC so 100% of that order goes to the orphanage.


I got a big donation of yarn from some good friends of mine. Thanks again, Patience and Mercy Fulton! As you can see, this whole bag is chock-full of baby yarn!

By the way, the bag is bigger than it looks. ;)

Now

I am *so* sorry I haven't posted anything in so long. :(
I've been incredibly busy; I mean, this has to be the busiest summer (and maybe even year) of my life. :P
Having a business has been a little bit more stressful than I anticipated. I will definitely be posting pictures of products I'm working on in the next couple of days.

My Birthday (VERY late)

OK, I kind of forgot to do this for my birthday, but I'm going to ask everyone who is reading this to donate $14 (since I turned 14) to the Master's Home in Uyo, Nigeria. I'm still trying to figure out how to put a donate button here, but for now I'll just a leave a link to their Donate page. Now if you don't want to donate $14 or maybe you don't have $14, that's fine. I totally understand. Any amount helps. :)
Please don't feel forced or pressured to do this.
MCCF International

P.S. Please comment to tell me if you do :)

Summer Vacation!

We're going to be really busy like the whole month of June, so we're closing up shop until July 5. So we're not really accepting any more orders this month, but if you have already ordered something from me, then I will definitely finish that up and get that to you. :)

Miroslav

adopt_miroslav
  

This adorable little boy is Miroslav. He is 5 years old and lives in a crib. No, he doesn't just sleep in the crib. He really actually lives in the crib.
   The picture below shows how he usually spends his days. Alone, with no one to love him and care for him like he needs. Can you imagine? Every day spent in a cage, with nothing to do and no one to talk to him and play with him.
Miroslav has cerebral palsy and I don't think he talks.
Please share this! Maybe someone will see it and adopt him! You can read more about Miroslav by going to the Rebelution.

Do Life Big by Jamie Grace


I heard this for the first time like two weeks ago and I fell in love. I think Everlasting Hope should make this their theme song! ;)  What do you think?

Day 56: Baby flower hat

The picture quality is poor, but this hat is actually cute in real life. It is newborn size. :)


I can't believe the 8WC is finally over! I will be writing a new post about my experience soon. If that last sentence didn't scare you off, I'm not sure what will. :)

Day 54: White beanie

This is kind of like a slouchy beanie, but not quite. It was an order and I forgot to take a picture before I gave it to the customer, but as they don't live very far away, I can get a picture soon. :)
It is teen/adult size and it is SOLD! Yay! :)

Day 53: Purple Moon hat

This hat did not turn out quite as I expected (and the bad pictures don't help at all), but I still think it looks okay. This one's for you, Tessa! Thanks for always hosting Monday's Minute Challenge! :D


This hat is sized for teens/adults. :)

Day 52: Newborn beanie

Here's a little blue beanie I made for newborn/preemie size. :)





Day 55: Newsboy hat

I didn't get pictures of this one either, but it looks exactly like this one. It is teen/adult size.

Day 51: Night Owl hat

I don't know about you guys, but I am a total night owl which means I am the complete opposite of an early bird. I only get up at 6:00 am like 3 times (maybe 4 times) a week.
Since I am such a night owl, I decided that a night owl hat would be adorable. :)


 This hat is for 6-12 months.

Day 50: Pink Rainbow hat


I would say that this hat would probably fit toddlers and preschoolers. :)

Day 49: Lego Minifigure hat

This hat is kind of creepy. It didn't really work out the way I had planned.
You see that bump on the top? No, he did not fall 20 feet out of a tree and bump his head (like I did once), that was supposed to be the little stud.
You see that weird, eerie smile he's got? No, he's not practicing his part in the newest horror movie titled 'Nightmare', that's just a normal smile.
Yes, I'm feeling really sarcastic today and it's probably showing through this post more than a little bit. I'll just let you be the judge of this hat.



Based off of this Lego minifigure

The End of 8WC (Oops!)

Sorry I haven't posted the pictures yet, but I was really busy yesterday. I would upload them now but we are about to leave to spend the night at a friend's house, so I will upload them tomorrow. Sorry about that. :P

Day 48: Owl hat

Yet another owl hat, but this time it's in natural colors. :)
This one fits my two year old brother. Isn't he the cutest model EVER? :)





Day 47: Bofur hat

OK, all of you know that I am a HUGE LOTR/Hobbit fan. I decided I just HAD to make a hat related to the Hobbit...
and here it is! (It looks a lot better when someone is wearing it)


When I was watching The Unexpected Journey for the first time, I fell in love with Bofur's hat. I'm a major hat person, so it really stuck out. Of course, after making this I had to make me one for my birthday. Especially since my birthday party was kind of based on the Hobbit. :)

Here's a little Bilbo I made out of clay to put on my cake. I spent a lot of time making the hair (because Hobbits have to have curly hair) and guess what happened a minute or two after I put him on the cake?
HE FELL OVER ON HIS HEAD!!!
Which meant he got icing in his hair, and since it's curly and hard it is was really hard to clean out. :P  :)

Poor quality pic, I know. :P

Day 46: Monkey hat

Not the usual sock monkey hat (because those have always looked kind of creepy to me), but it's still a monkey hat. 6-12 months.



Day 45: Purple beanie

Child/teen sized. :)

Day 44: Green beanie

Just a normal green beanie. :)  
It's child-sized. Not sure what else to say, so I'm not going to ramble on. :)

Day 43: Camo beanie

Here's a purple camo beanie for all you girls out there who like... camo. :)


Day 42: Owl hat

This hat is about 6-12 months sized. :)
