I wish I could make these faster. I really do. This is the second in the series of tentacles hanging ornaments that will follow this particular style. It reminds me of Van Gogh’s, “The Starry Night.” I think it’s something about the blue yarn. Regardless, it’s kind of awesome.
There is something so completely satisfying about seeing what seemed like a potentially awesome idea turn into a thing that you can hold in your hands… or in this case, hang in your house. I was talking about this tentacle idea at a birthday party back in January, and it must have been meant to be, because the first of my tentacle ornaments is up for sale in both the retail and wholesale shops.
There’s something so very satisfying about listing a bunch of items at once. Here are some new options for the Cat Butt Ornaments and some new handspun yarns. These are great little side project to break up the monotony of
Here is the newest little set of cat butt ornaments. I’ve been having fun playing with the variegated sock yarn with the solid base colors for these butts. You really never know how it’ll turn out until you are finished. It’s the little things for me… The last set listed had ten cat butt ornaments, so a set of three seemed like a good start for those of you still on the fence about cat butts; especially in your brick and mortar shops. It’s time to really get this cat butt wholesale train moving, and I’m hoping that having more choices will be helpful.
I have 70 crochet pattern designs that include free, paid, and unavailable crochet patterns. Holy crap! That’s quite the number. I started designing patterns about 14 years ago, and while I love what I’ve been doing lately, I’m cringing at quite a few of these… okay, more than a few. Some. Of. Them. Are. So. Bad. It’s time to thin out the horrible, and reformat the ones worth saving.
Okay there aren’t puppets EVERYWHERE, but I did update the shop with four new hand puppets. I’m currently stocking my puppets for my upcoming craft shows. I think they’ll do well in person, but I also want to have them available to everyone. So they’re in the shop for you to purchase. You’re welcome.
These are so awesome. I’ve been stuck for a few days, waiting for my print Grimeclaw crochet patterns to be finished. I figured I should work these hand and finger puppets out in the meanwhile. My other option was a dishcloth crochet pattern, and I just wasn’t feeling it. Probably because dishcloths equal cleaning, and I’m not too excited about cleaning in general. Eyeball monsters won. Did I mention that they were awesome? I love these. I’ve been spending the past week messing around, throwing impromptu lip sync puppet shows to whatever is playing off of my Spotify… in between the designing and computer work. So. Much. Fun!
I showed a sneak peak of this drawing last week as it was in progress. I’ve been trying to follow my daily drawing prompts, but I’m continuing to over-schedule my day… thus falling behind. I’ve paused the new prompts in favor of catching up as I can with the ones I missed. I’m also trying to schedule less things to do. I really love drawing again.
I had high hopes of having original art available for sale by now. I bought the ACEO cards and plastic sleeves and made “THE BEST PLAN.” In reality, I have been slacking. Excuses have been made for not drawing. You could probably get at least 7 reason why I wasn’t (or COULDN’T) drawing something every day. Those are all big lies. Drawing is something that makes me happy. I can find time to do it. No more lies. It’s one of the few positives that came out of a (very recent) bad situation. It’ll be in the book, so keep that in mind if you are curious.
