Hey All sorry I haven't been around I absolutely hate when My favorite Amigurumi Makers Disappear and I hate doing it to all my followers but sense I'm here I have lots to share and lots to show!! I have been Crazy busy!!!

First Off I'm so sorry but I have cleaned out my etsy shop of Finished Amigurumis ( patterns still Available and hopefully some new ones will be soon) for the time being!! I Signed up to have a table at are Annual Christmas in the country Craft Sale and Trade show and will be trying to sell it there but right after I will throw all my stuff that doesn't sell back on to etsy!!! I'M so nervous to be doing the craft show I have no clue how well my stuff will do sense it is different than the normal stuff around here!! My fingers are crossed but I hate feeling like ppl are judging my stuff it is so much easier on the net when I cant see everyone reactions to my lil monsters!!!

So far I have got a couple Lil Hooded Monsters done a lil bit larger monster as well and some Gloomy girls :)

As for the first I will show Is an Older doll who is finally finished Remember Bri???

Here she is all dressed and Ready to go !!!!!!!
Bri All Dressed finally

Bri Is one of my biggest dolls I have made and one of the fattest lol im pretty happy with her now that she is clothed It really makes a different with these gals!!

Now on two my newest created dolls and these girls its going to be hard to let go ( well I have hard time saying good bye to them all That might be why I still have 6 lil sister gloomies still)

Meet LooLa


Dressed in Pink all pretty and ready for Pinktastic Party!! But she doesn't look to pleases I'm not sure why sense pink is her favorite color!!
I just love the way her hair turned out I used Red Heart Satin for the light pink and when I brushed it out it gave that cool crimped look!!

Now on to The second made doll ( This is really crazy to me I made these two dolls in 4 days that is seriously a record for me, My crocheting is getting faster I guess)

Meet JenaBee

JenaBee Is ready for a 1st class party in here beautiful black and red dress!! She is all ways up to something that is not good and is full of pranks and bad tricks!! but this darlings cute looks make all think she is just so sweet!!!
So theres my something new!!!
I have a couple lil things I need to take pics of a new lil monster I hope to right the pattern up for as well as hats and other crochet goodness!!
IM pretty sure I Will be back Posting again soon but now its time to get my rugrats settled down and watching a show before bed !!!

I always was the point a shoot person well now I'm learning about settings and shutter speed and ISO and all this other stuff that is really exciting in away!! I had fun yesterday changing all the setting in my camera and playing around.

Jay Is going to be gift to one of my good friends!! She has no clue that this lil Gloomy Was made excpecialy for her.

Jay is not as bright as the rest but she is fashionable. HEr lil Shaw is made from Bamboo yarn and is supper soft. She loves taking walks on cool summer evenings!

Meet Kayah
Kayah is always ready to go shopping. she cares her designer Purple purse where ever she goes. She always on the look out for the new hot things.

Kayah and Jay are my Two new Lil sister gloomy's and hopefully there will soon be some more coming this way. You can see more photos of these two in my flickr gallery!
I have been working On Kayah for along time I cant tell you how many times i have tore out her hair and put new colors in. As for Jay I started her and finished her so quick i will be sad when I wrap her up for my friend! But I know My friend will just love her to bits.

So my last post was about my hair. Well I truly had fun as a blonde but it was time to go back to a burnet. I feel much happier being a burnet im not to sure why but Blonde hair just wasnt for me. I had to do my Hair all the time when it was blond or it just looked horid I will post before and after pics once i get this brown die washed off my forehead.

Flowers in Hand!!
...What does this lil Creep Want????????
Well he wants May, You see the Pretty May day he picked for her

I free handed this lil guy last night and really had no clue what I was making when i first started I new it would be some sort of monster but never imagined an alien!
Mirk wasn't thought off at first until he was almost done:)
We finally got rain here last night (much needed) and a lovely thunder storm and lightning so maybe that's what made this lil guy come to are lil gloomie home all it took was a gloomy night!
He is much different than the dolls:)
Do you think may will give this lil guy a chance?

I wanted to Write this on Sunday and then on Monday and then on Tuesday!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
But I just never got time:)

I wanted to say
to all the mommies out there that are reading my blog!!!

SO what did you all do for mothers day and what special items did you receive?

Ethan made me a lovely card at school, and the kids and hubby went to town and brought home a beautiful cupboard book shelf thing for me ( something I truly Needed to you know put all my yarn in)
What do you think:) I just love being able to have all my stuff in one place i use to have it in the closet in the living room all stored in Rubbermaid containers and wicker baskets I ended up taking the whole closet.. So hubby decided He would get me something that I could put everything in!!! Now I need another I could hardly fit all my yarn and goodies in there!
I have this bad addiction that i think any knitter or crocheter has and it is
I just keep buying cuz
I always need more
and I never will have enough
Yes I have this problem
and I will truly admit it that the next time I go to the city I will probley come home with more even though I only need Beige
The kids then bought me another lovely Orchid ( I also have a small addiction to house plants!)

So once I got my Lovely storage closet all organized I finished my Gloomy
Now this gloomy is not dark:) But she is still a lil sister
Meet Betty !!
Now this is wear I would right that Betty is up for grabs in my etsy shop :) BUT She is there but she is all ready reserved! * Sorry * I added photos of Betty yesterday to The facebook fan page and this morning I had a very nice gal send me a message that is now going to be Betty's new owner!


BUT I will be making a couple more gloomies like this one you see the Nose ain't it adorable:)

I also Made a huge Change to the feet!! they are more shoe/foot shaped i think and bigger!


I will say I just love this doll and again this has to be my newest favorite. I can really see my skill increasing with each doll and each one getting a lil bit better as my Skill level increases.

But I need to run

Blossom the flower child

Meet Blossom, She just loves the out doors, From Planting flowers to doing all her garden work. With all these Bright colors she is all about Spring and Summer.

Blossom Is wearing a cute lil sun dress with a heart button on the bottom and 4 cute lil colored buttons on the top.
Her raggy looking hat keeps that hot sun off her head as she pulls the weeds out of her flower beds and her scarf is well she just loves the way it matches her hat.

Blossom The Flower Child

Blossom Is up for grabs in the shop.
I just love the way she turned out i know i say that for every doll but with each doll I get better and better and this one i'm just so proud of that I can't believe I put her up for sale.
I actually broke my sewwing machiine o ut of jail for this Gloomy and to tell you the truth an out fit sewn with a machine is just much cleaner looking than a hand stitched one dont you think?

I bought those cute lil button that are one her dress at Micheals and i think it really adds to the detailing of the Gloomy.

SO one project is finished and im so thrilled about it. Now to finish my 1 sock and the Afghan, and of course get my sisters stuff started. I did remake a dress for one of the lil gloomys and will be adding it either tomorrow or monday in to my shop. Remeber Milly? Well I redid her clothes:)

Well that is all istill havent finished my dishes that is just one never ending job so i really should get off here and maybe do some house work lol

Well I haven't worked on my Afghan at all :( and I have not finished a single project. I ended up getting the flu bug and was laid up for a couple days, so sick all I could do is just sleep and whine lol
I now have Three projects on the go, including the Afghan! I also have so many things I want to do and have to do lol. BUT I better finish all these things before I start another or i will be getting myself over whelmed.
Looking at the calender I don't think i will be able to accomplish my own Challenge of finishing my Afghan by the end of April :( so I will have to give myself a new date and It shall be ........
I will have to look at the calender more. Next month is going to be alil busy. Both my kids are in soccor and mys ister is graduating next month:)

So lets start with the Gloomy Sense she will Probley be finished sooner than the rest.
She is not named yet !
She is the first ever Bright Gloomy lol Her Eyelids are magenta not black, She also is wearing a slouchy raggy looking hat :) I have one leg done so I just need to make another leg and dress her. OOoooo and name her. I bought some really cute fabric to out fit this girl with and am excited for her to be finished the yellow and the pink I used in this doll is a different yarn than i usually use and its 1/2 Wool and 1/2 Acrylic, it has a fuzzier texture to it and the stuff i used for her hat and scarf is really unusual I bought it at a yarn store and need to search for the wrapper so I can tell ya all exactly what it is called I will say though it is terrible hard to work with i had to us a K hook.

I will add more details on this gal once I have her finished!!

So lately I have been trying to get my crochet skills up there Learning newer techniques stitches etc, SOoo I found some sock yarn in Zellers and decided I shall try to build a Sock .. YEs you read that right A sock. I would say a pair but once I finish this one sock I will maybe make another by next year lmao
So theres my Sock I'm using Pink Camo its turning out pretty cool but boy oh boy is it taking awhile.
The sock Pattern is called ribbon`s and Bows I'm thinking I picked a two complicated pattern for my first try at socks but I really wanted to learn how to do the cable cross stitch
NOw woooo hoo I acomplished something today I updated my blog ppls on my self.
So hopefully next time I will have some finished items to show you all. Im still feeling under the weather so I have been taking it easy .
My sister bought me Yarn to make her
* 3 more dishcloth's
*and a slouchy hat
So I would like to get those done for her soon aswell Due to she bought the yarn/cotton for me to make them for her`:)
So I shall be done with rambling do my dishes up quick and get my Hooker moving lol
