So I finally sat down and did it thanks to Crochetville. If all goes wrong search a message board So that is where I found the link to Cute PDF Is a great site and has a free download to create your documents in to pdf is easy to use and well, well if you know how to use word document a click print your set.
I just sent it out to a lady to get tested again sense last time I got it tested I accidentally added like 10 rows in the body lol

So Once it has been tested ( and it works out good) it will be up for sale

NOW how do ppl do the whole pattern thing

I have the PDF file
~ Just emailing it to the person seems odd to do when they buy it or maybe not.. ( i will do it that way I'm on the computer at least once a day)
I know when I bought a pattern awhile ago I got sent a link then went to some site thinger and downloaded it there .. Oh the days of dial up it took me forever to download it.

Man alive I feel like such a bone head sense I don't know any of this stuff.. ( IM LEARNING )
Any way

The Ruthy Pattern is 4 pages and has lil photos through out. I think its worded well I guess my tester will tell me if I'm wrong..

Well just thought i would update quick
I'm also thinking of changing the name of my blog
from not so perfect housewife to Gloomy Gurumi's
What do you guy's think?
Do you think that would be a good idea?
Of cource the link won't change

well im sorta get excitted about everything its about time to have a lil excitment here for me any way lol ( won't get in to that)

Oh here is the newest button I made

Im going to make some others, the large button i made and showed the other day is also some what of what the tag on each doll will look like

SOooooo As OF right now no opening date for the store But I also looked in to the whole name change thing and well I would have to get a new email to register with in what I really don't want to do sense Im bad enough Checking one email addy right now so
MY URLs Will stay at
It matches my blog I guess you can say
I guess sense im now as Craftymummy2two all over the net its not a bad thing.
If I do good at the store I Will probley Change it or even Open up my own site, ( actually looking in to that now * thanks BellaKarma* )

I still havent figured out anything about the PDF file OR whatever

So to the newwest Dark Sister

This lil One may be leaving me soon We will see...
As of now Im Calling Her Corral


I love the way she turned out and she has some cute lil Features.

( I wasn't sure about the neon Pink but I think the end result turned out great)

( I couldn't fix the color's in the photo to the actuall colors but the purple IS more Purple than that the camera made it more of a blue, THE white in her hair is actually a light pink She wasn't that easy to photo due to the abstract of different colors)


Im soooo Proud of her out fit I actually Crochet it....
But any way I need to run I feel a cold coming on and Am thinking a nice hot bath will make it better.
I also Want to make a quick note thank you all who have commented on my blog It means the world to me...

Opening Soon and need a lil HELP

So I finally decided On a shop name..
Gloomy Gurumi's
(what my link button will look like in a larger scale)
Of course its not all going to be my dark dolls But they are kinda turning into my specialty.
I will be selling finished dolls.. The regular size dolls are around 13 in long and will be going for I'm thinking some where between $75-$80 ( the dark dolls that is sense there is alot more detail in them and of course the thick Hair. etc.. ) So do you guys think that is a reasonable price.. That is only For the one's Like Bobby and Myla!!! For Ones like Oswald and Bubbles I was thinking around the $50-$60 ( there isn't as much detail and Plus not the dark hair) and for the Monster pets like Meow-key $30-$35.. ( due to they are alot smaller ) Please leave a comment on what you all think.
I would l like to sell some of my first patterns that I have wrote up But Am having a problem Figuring out the how to make them in to PDF File where when you load it it will be three or more pages together so far all I figured out is to make 1 page then have to send lets say the three pages by them selves.. So lets say My pattern is going to be three pages Cover page and then pattern pages .. How in the world can I make them in to three together instead of three separate sheets to send.
So if any one has info On this plzzz share... You can email me at toewsrus(@)gmail(.)com

So My store .. Gloomy Gurumi's
I was getting things going lastnight and well Noticed something I should have had before The link to the store will be my Username :( So I have to delete my old account and start again.. I want it to be GloomyGurumis.etsy not craftymummy2two.etsy
soooo With that said I hope to get it all fixed up by the end of this week

But I have more to write and have to go gO figure
Kindergarten Registration is today and me and Ethan have to head over to the school.. Gotta get dressed and made all up to go.. So I will Update again probley either later today or tomorrow almost done my third dark daughter Opps Sister

SO I finished Strawbeary from the Book By Beth D.


I wasn't sure about her when I was making her and thought she wasn't going to turn out the way I wanted her to..


BuT Im really happy with her out come and I think I did a pretty good job for doing the hardest pattern in the book.
I changed the color's of her, and think they all went together great. One thing I messed up on is I should have maybe made the skirt a lil longer or something lol. I also messed up on the one foot but you can't tell from the photos so I will just keep it quiet now lol.

I used these Cute lil Brands ( I think thats what they are called) for her shoes..


I got them at the craft store in the Scrapbook section i thing there adorable that is also what used on her shirt instead of a button.

Hope you all enjoy her The pattern was very easy to follow and I think she turned out great.
Here is one last photo


Tanning in the sun lol

Well hope every one had a great weekend, It was really nice here and with the nice weather we lost most of are SNOW * ya* We still have some left man alive its the end of April, BUt then again Im in Canada THe northern part of Alberta so snow at the end of April isn't to rare. We are getting some nice lovely April Showers tonight.

* April Showers Bring MAy Flowers*

Im not to sure what my next Project will be I have many ideas on the next, I have to finish up Myla's Outfit, Ok Start on it lol and then start maybe another monster. Im think Baby Monster???

Im still working on things to openning up an Etsy shop and relaly hop to start it up Beg- of may But we will see I do have a lil collection going so Maybe I will sell what I have see how it goes.

The Newest Dark Daughter ( A ok All these Vamp Books are getting to me lol) So Here she is THE long awaited Myla the dark Sister to Bobby..
She is a lil more chubbier My oops. And well IS still in her Underwear I will be getting her out fit done today I hope if I get a chance.


I like the way s he turned out I wasn't Feeling the red at first but once I got her done I'm happy with the out come.. I guess she isn't complete yet.. NEEDS CLOTHES LMAO


One last shot of Myla By her self. I think Bobby feels a little bit better now sense she isn't the only one in the house now that is soooo dark. But its sad to say that one of these gals may be leaving me. My uncle wanted to buy Bobby off me during Easter and I told him to wait till I do another one. SO I will be letting him choose what one he wants to buy.. :( Not sure if I'm ready to let either of them go yet.

So Write after I Finished Myla I started on another , Its from The Book I posted Yesterday


Its Strawberry !!!! of course Silly me goes to the back of the book to start at the hardest pattern but so far she is turning out good. I don't have the ears attached yet though and well am working at it oddly sense I got the head /body started last night and Should have really started the way the pattern says at the arms so I have had to stop with the body and work the arms lol

Hopefully will Finish more today

As for custom orders..
I Plan On starting up an etsy shop soon I can't tell you how soon sense I'm sorta learning about all this stuff. Once I Do I may have some patterns up IM not sure If I will be giving out this pattern I made up for these newer monsters . But once I do have enough Stuff and have figure everything out I Will be selling my creations... If you are interested in anything, Feel free to send me and email at toewsrus(at)gmail(dot)com

Why Not have a monster Pet..

Meet Meow-key

Each one Of my Monster Dolls have toes ( well the newer ones any way) With my monster pets there feet are a tad Bigger here is a close up of them :)

I have Decided on the name Monster Dolls for the bigger ones and now there will also BE Monster Pets ( they will be shorter legged and armed and of course have some sort of pet kindness to them)

Bobby and meow-key

I have a custom Order to do I have to make another Bobby well of course it won't be Bobby but another Dark monster doll. I can't wait to start this new one. I hope to make a boy dark one as well and a gloomy pet to go with them. :)

I have been asked about prices and am still having a hard time deciding withe these ones they take allot longer that the normal ones due to detailing. ( I put allot of love and work in to all my pieces and will not usually photo them unless I'm happy with the out come.)

So feel free to suggest me prices in my blog post about Bobby I wrote the sizes. IT usually takes me from 3 - 5 days to get one done depending on what is going on in my life.

Any way here is a couple last pics that I took and enjoyed.. Hope you all do to!!

Monster Doll series

And why not another group Shot

Meet Bobby

I had a real hard time coming up with her name and just decided on Bobby.

She is My faovrite one yet.

I took Me awile to get her finished and well her hair

was so much fun when I had it all done Kiera decided to Cut her hair so I had to fix it all up..

Bobby Is alot bigger that the rest I will take photos of all them together later today..

To see more photos go to my Flickr page ...

She also has a bra and Panties will try to get some pics of that later due to the ones I took Im not to happy about :)

Update.. I have been Asked what Bobby's Measurements are and really you can't tell the size of anything in photo's.. ( I try to make most of my creatures at a reasonable size I like making small ones but love taking the extra time and effort to get them bigger)

Bobby Measures 13 1/2 in long from her head - toes

Bubbles measure 11 inches long

Oswald is a whole 10 inches long ( hes a shorty)

I made Bobby's legs alot longer than Bubbles and Oswalds.. MAde her more lanky the size difference between Bubles and Oswald has to do with the yarn.. They have the same amount of stithes and Rnds.

So She is Finished
And not to happy about her mate..
She thinks i should have made him more active
so she wouldn't have to do all the house work.

I really happy the way she turned out I learned allot making Oswald and had allot of hidden Mistakes in him.. With her I fixed them and chaged how I did some things like the toes and feet :)

She is a tad bigger due to the fact I used a more thicker yarn ..

Bubbles Dress was fun I had no clue what I was doing I tried many many many Things but finally cut to pieces and Added an elastic around the top.. I love the Fabric and actually bought it to make a Yarn Bag For myself :)

But I need to go my daughter is being a lil grouchy she has a cold and well Lets just say I hope it goes away by this weekend.. ITS HER BIRTHDAY.. My baby is Turning 3 :( Maybe the terrible twos will run away that day hahahaha Wonder what year Three of Kiera's life will bring forward and what new things she will Teach me.. my son was a way different Fish lol
