Still selling a bunch of these mini heart-adorned octopus amigurumi after Valentine’s Day - guess people still love each other in March! ;D I have to admit that I had so much fun trying a couple new yarns to have more of a traditional pink/red/white selection. And of course there is baby blue for the boys! 
I found some really cute heart-themed mini takeout-style boxes at JoAnn’s so I gave a few of these to my friends and they all loved how each was personalized with what I knew were their favorite colors! Watching people see my little critters for the first time, especially when they are gifts, is absolutely the best part! It is a shame that I hardly get to see that since I sell exclusively online - Maybe one day I will live in a place where I can have a stall at a local market! That would be lovely (:

Reblogging here for you lovely people to see. I really thought I would get sick of these, but I haven’t… not at all! :D
This is officially the biggest #amigurumi I have ever made! :D (Taken with Instagram)

A cross-stitch collection I’m going to finish one day… I hope you know which Avatar this is from… and it’s not the movie (oh god, that movie… D:)
It’s hard to tell in this photo but the floss is a really nice dark green

Today I was bored, so I braided some braids… Came out neater than I expected! Also, a four-stranded braid is like a brain teaser that you just keep having to do over and over haha (:  (Taken with instagram)
In more detail: I made four long braids with doubled up embroidery floss in two colors then used the picture tutorial on this site: http://theautry.org/ortega/activity.php#braiding to braid those four braids together, getting a neat striping effect
#Valentine’s Day spirit? What would make you say that? :D Made a couple bracelets in honor of the upcoming holiday #crafts #handmade  (Taken with instagram)
Working on some freebies for my Etsy shop customers! :D (Thank you note and coupon code included)
Still in love with Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page obviously. Although the awkward 3.25 inch dimension requirement for this one is kind of a pain, it’s totally worth it!
