Nerdy Glasses and a Scarf?!?!

Aching arms and cramped up hands: the true mark of a real crocheter! Let me tell you, my arms are done by the end of my day! Between crocheting like a madwoman and picking up my heavy 3 yr old, I think I should have pipes! PIPES!!! Big ones like Arnold or that actor who played Thor! (Not up to date on my beefy Hollywood Hunks!) But alas, they are still flabby arms, albeit very nice darkly tanned, but still....flabby. The reason my arms are so tired is becasue of the INSANE amount of crochet I have been doing!!! I guess all that shouting "Buy my stuff, buy my stuff" and trailing yarn out my pants has finally paid off! :)  

Make no mistake I am certainly NOT complaining at all! Bring on the sales!! But I must say I am a little worried on getting REALLY behind in work! (Case in point, I should not be writing this blog entry!) Currently, I have about 10 orders on the go! Honestly, I really hope I get them all done in a timely manner. I must say ALL of my customer have been wonderfully patient and super understanding that I am a stay-at-home-mom, too. 

What about the title of this post, you say? How is jibber-jabber about arms and sales have anything to do with nerdy glasses and scarves?!?! It doesn't. 

But this does!! I have finished a famous Hello Kitty Hat with nerdy glasses!! Coolest thing ever, I must say! This is not my original idea, no siree! A wonderful customer from South Korea thought of this. To be perfectly honest, I have come across a few Hello Kitty Hats with nerdy glasses on Etsy, but I have not made one as I don't wish to intrude upon a fellow Etsian's business. But if you so choose to have nerdy glasses on your Hello Kitty Hat I will be more than happy to oblige! (For an extra $2) 

Isn't she cute?!?! I really LOVE how this turned out! I'm hoping my South Korean customer will love it as much as I do!

Now for the scarf bit! If you are a "fan" of my Facebook Page, (which you should become a fan of!) then you have already viewed the lovely scarf. I made this beautiful piece of crochet for a customer who wanted an elegant scarf for winter. I think it is just perfect!!! The color is great for elegance and if you want a bit more flare, why not hot pink?!?! I am about to make another one of these in just that color!! I did not think I would be making these lovely scarves becasue honestly, I have only made 5 or 6 in my years as a crocheter!

Thus has been my summer! Acting and crochet! My two favorite activities! It has been a wonderful summer overall and it is not over yet! (I wear my sandals until is snows!) Hope you are having a fabulous summer filled with nerdy glasses and scarves, too! Mine has also been full of dolls, lots and lots of dolls! Dolls out the wazoo! And ponies, curtsey of my daughter who now believes she is horse. :)

Hey all!!! I have made some new items! I wanted to make more but I got a bunch of orders right in the middle of a theatre festival I was performing in! I have made a FABULOUS hat for a customer locally, I can't WAIT to show you all but alas I don't have any pictures yet.....

Right now, I'm sure all you crocheters and crafters out there are getting ready for.....Christmas! Yes, Christmas! I know it is NOT what I want to be thinking about right now becasue summer in this province lasts for such a short time but I really want to get a head start on things! Anyone doing some Christmas craft shows? I hope to do a few this year. I did two shows this summer and they didn't work out too great but I know it is getting my product out there and people are starting to recognize who I am!!!

A gorgeous NEW headband!! OOAK ONLY $8!!

And I have MORE good news!!!!!! We are hoping and praying the Agency will give us the go ahead to adopt our daughter.......THIS MONTH!!!!! Crazy I know! It was like our social worker got a bug under her! Praise God! Sometimes I think I don't even have to physically pray for us to adopt her anymore becasue I think my heart beats that prayer every day.

I was day dreaming about what it would be like to finally call her our "real" daughter! How I was going to introduce her to all my friends abroad on Facebook, child dedication at church, having a "birth" announcement in our church bulletin, the list goes on and on and on! I can't wait to show you all how beautiful my little girl is! SO CLOSE!!!!

Thank you for praying with us! Thank you for all your amazing comments and well wishes! We are almost there!

Now I have to clean my house as I have neglected to give it a good cleaning for the past month!!! (What a bad housewife hey?!?! LOL) Dust are going down.......

Whilst I am cleaning you can take a look at some of my newer listings on Etsy if you want! You can find them at the bottom of the page!!

Baby Bobbie!! Check out the listing at the bottom of the page!! :)
