I've been a hard hooker! (NOT like that!)

I've been keeping myself busy with my crochet hook! I wanted something for my youngest son to wear for Halloween but am REALLY on a budget! My BFF Kelly @ Knittingandthings had recently sent me a HUGE box of yarn.

Said HUGE box:

I found some black yarn in there & thought... I could see Justin wearing a BAT hat! Scoured the internet & couldn't find a pattern for what I was looking for.  A black beanie with bat wings & bat ears.  So, being the crafty me, I found a beanie pattern I liked, adapted it to fit Justin's head & kept out the parts I didn't like, added the parts I wanted.  Next, I found a pattern for kitty ears (because I couldn't find bat ears!) and thought I could make them a tad smaller than what was pictured.  Then, the hard part was finding bat wings!  I found a pattern for a bat amigurumi figure & adapted the wings to fit what I wanted.  Put it all together & this is what you get!

Yay for my little boy's bat hat!  I'm so excited to see how he looks!  My husband and oldest son say it looks like a moose!  Ugh! NO!  He's so cute with it on!

I guess I'm going to have to put some make up on his nose (black) and maybe make some fangs for it!?

Now, I'm obsessed with looking at hat patterns!  I really want to make some cute little Santa hats for kids!  I'm now taking custom orders for the kidlets for the Holidays!  I will be selling these hats for $18 shipped!  So, email me at if you want to put your order in today!  Hurry before I get too busy!

Much Love,

Columbus Day Auction!!

I'm running an auction today at Crafty's Creations!  I posted Auction items in the Columbus Day Auction!! photo album (click here). I put the description of the item & the starting bid.  Bids will be in $0.50 incriments. I will send Paypal invoices within 24 hours of Auction closing. I will keep the auction up for today!  If I have enough response, I might decide to extend it for another day!

I really want to get rid of all the small stuff I have left so I can start making winter slippers & scarves!  I have so much in my head & not enough room to store it, so I must start creating it! :)  So, share my auction with your friends, family & fan pages!  Thanks in advance!

I have another new BFF!

Her name is Jessica & she's just so funny & cute!  Met her on Facebook (through my fan page, I think)  She has her own page called Jessica's Jewels !  She's such the sweetheart!  She just had twin girls to add to her little girl Sophia.  I just love her to death!  She's making donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.  15% of her sales from the Pink Ribbon album will go directly to the cause!  She keeps posting stuff I really HAVE to have!  I'm going to hurt her! ;)
