new pouches

I have taken my dear Courtney's idea and made it my own. I have these new pouches in my etsy shop. (daisysinherhair.etsy.com)
these were made this weekend

All three were made from Vanna choice yarn and buttons from my stash. They don't even take up much yarn!

These were made today, the blue one was made out of organic bamboo yarn and the green one was made out of Lion brand thick and quick yarn

In other news I went for a camp out on my memorial day weekend. With my Meg and her family. We drove 1 hour north to the Wichita mountains near Lawton Oklahoma. It was beautiful I got a really funny video of me climbing a tree and getting my bum stuck. We have some pictures. This was our campsite where we got to have our campout.

we were there for less than 2 hours and got rained out! So we went to the museum and had some more fun just milling about.

I hope you all had a fabulous memorial day.

I woke up at 11, this starts my day of crafty adventures! When you wake up at 11 and immediately you have to get your car inspected what is the one ingredient you need in your bloodstream? Why caffiene of course. Therefore, I downed my first cup of java for the day,

7 cups later I decided it was high time I started crafting.

I found a pattern the other day for a purse that I thought was the greatest thing since sliced bread and juice boxes. http://tinyhappy.typepad.com/tiny_happy/2006/06/shoulder_bag_tu.html#comment-22767991

so I decided to try it. (yes I did it my way, which means I disregarded all instructions and made it freestyle! BAD IDEA) Dont worry it all turned out alright in the end, not exactly what I pictured, but then again what is?

here are some pictures of how it went:

amigurumi attempt one

yesterday I met this wonderful new friend I have decided to call cheep-cheep. He flew into my window this morning as I was crocheting.

I was working in my backyard and found a mushroom. (reminicint of the ones from Mario) I have decided to make my friend Meg as gnome village for her birthday, made out of yarn. Complete with hut, mushrooms and trees Wish me luck
As always, Keep a tune in your heart

Oh dear, I just moved back into my parents house and oh my has my life flipped. I am plagued by longing for my friends. I miss the constant companionship and community of college life.

On the plus side I have a great work station set up!

My Yarn is all set up and I have plenty more under my bed.

I also have some cool new projects. I have been working on Flower brooches and arm warmers.

I really like these. This one was made with sugar and cream cotton yarn! So it is nice and sturdy.

I have several different colors of coasters ready as well!

my work station! YAY, yes it is my bedroom floo. My own personal sanctuary!

Thank you for being a part of my blog today

I wish you a wonderful day full of sunshine and rainbows.

Keep a song in your heart
