I think I mentioned it before, but my husband and I have a little one on the way! We are super excited to be expanding our family. While we are trying to figure out what we’ll need for the baby, and frantically rearranging … Continue reading
I recently found that some of my original artwork has been stolen and is being sold without my permission. I’m working on getting this frustrating situation resolved. I’ve also included information of the steps I’ve taken so far. Continue reading
What’s black and white & red all over? This Art Deco Owl!
This design features an owl done in the classic art deco style. The black & white owl is comprised of geometric shapes on a red background.
You can find this feathered friend on all sorts of items in my Zazzle store. Every product can be customized by adding text, changing the size/ orientation of the owl, or even removing the red background.
My latest design features cute cartoon monsters of every shape, size & color! It’s great for kids and the kid-at-heart!
Remember the crochet Clutter Eating Monsters I made? The free PDF pattern is decorated with all sorts of little creatures that were just begging for more attention! So I’ve unleashed these monstrosities on tons of fun products in my Zazzle store. Head over and check them out!
Since today is Halloween I thought I’d share my halloween-inspired designs. They are all avalable on a range of products in my Zazzle shop. While it may be too late to get any spooky gear, it’s never too early to start planning for next year!
You may remember my orange Boo! design (far left) which won a Todays Best Award over at Zazzle. A few days later the Boo! design with orange details (far right) also won a TBA. I simply couldn’t believe it and am still excited!
How cute is this scared little ghost?! I’d probably be afraid too if I had so many bats flying around me 🙂
This design combines my love of yarn with my favorite holiday. If all pumpkins were made out of yarn I’d have to invest in my own pumpkin patch! They’d be pretty hard to carve though…
Since not everyone likes yarn as much as me, I made another version of my Yarn-O-Ween design. Same old cat, just a different pumpkin!
I’ve always been a huge fan of Halloween, so it was a ton of fun coming up with all these designs. I can’t wait until next year to make more!! Happy Halloween!
Out of the thousands of designs created each day, only a handful are selected as the top-picks to be featured on Zazzle’s main page. I’m simply over the moon and still can’t quite believe that my artwork was chosen for an actual award! I even got an official “Artist Award” ribbon:

It’s been really busy around here lately and I’ve been neglecting my blog a bit. OK. A lot. To get back on track, I thought I’d share a bit of what I’ve been working on lately.
It was Mother’s Day a little over a week ago here in the US. I really enjoyed making special goodies for my mom and mother-in-law. I sent them each a personalized card and some crochet coasters. My MIL loves the ocean and everything beach related, so I went with a seashell theme for her Mother’s Day gifts.
Inspired by the beautiful colors of spring, I decided on a floral theme for my own mom. I made her some colorful coasters and a card with some pretty, paper flowers. Thanks to almost a whole bottle of glue, the 3-D roses arrived safe, sound, and still attached to the card! Since my mom is the one who inspired me to crochet, I just had to send her a “Captain Hook” t-shirt too!
I started working on this crochet Deep V-Top a few months ago. Bernat offers it as a free pattern on their website. It’s my first real attempt at crocheting something wearable. I’ve had to alter the pattern quite a bit to keep it out of crop-top territory. Somewhere along the way I got all mixed up and crocheted the cap sleeves backwards. Luckily I don’t have to undo a million rows to fix the problem, but I’m still a little embarrassed at my total “D’oh” moment!
The other day my Meema (maternal grandmother) asked me to crochet a baby blanket on her behalf. Her only request was that it be for a baby girl. After getting sucked into Ravelry for what seems like a life-time, I finally decided to crochet a basketweave stitch blanket. I’m thinking about adding some flowers to one side, so the little one can play with the petals! I picked out some Caron Simply Soft yarn in Grey Heather and Watermelon. I can’t wait to get started!
Before starting the baby blanket I really wanted to try out the basketweave stitch. Since I have tons of cotton yarn on hand, I decided to make a dishcloth for our kitchen. It’s gone surprisingly fast and I’m already almost halfway done! I just love the basketweave stitch now that I’ve gotten the hang of it!
These projects are only the tip of the iceberg! I’ve been doing tons of gluten-free baking, and have more t-shirt designs and crochet patterns on the way. I’ve also re-listed some of the products in my Etsy shop, and have new items to add soon. Stay tuned!
Proudly display your lack of gluten with my newest design! The artwork would look great on a t-shirt or mug. You can even keep your goodies safe with this “100% Gluten-Free” candy jar! Find it all in my Zazzle store!
I can’t wait to get a reusable grocery bag (or ten) to take grocery shopping! What about you, what’s your favorite way to show off your gluten-free side?
