Let’s hear it for the Boys

Baby Boys that is! I am seriously “Hooked” on making these Baby Diaper Cover outfits!  With Baseball in “Full Swing” it’s perfect timing for those New Born babies!  I’ve already added them to my Etsy shop which you can click on the link on the right hand side!

I just LOVE the back of these outfits and what a great Photo Prop these would make!  If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to ask! I will be listing the “Ready to Ship” ones that I have available this week sometime!  Thanks for stopping by and as always……

Crocheted Dodger Girl

I’m baaackk…..Told you I’d be back sharing my latest creation!

Dodger Girl 1I was inspired to make my Doll by many Doll Makers but I have to say the 1st doll that inspired me was from a gal named Aniqua Wilkerson from “My Kinda Thing” on Facebook then I saw another doll from Dee Dee from “Off D’Hook Creations” also on Facebook they both were such an inspiration to me as I hadn’t done Amigurumi in years and seeing their creations got that creativity flowing and I pulled out a Bunny I had sitting around for awhile which you can see HERE!

Anyway seeing their Beautiful Dolls inspires this one!  I have to say I’m “Extremely Proud” of myself! I’ve been waiting to bring this girl to life for some time now! Before I introduce you I’ve got to say this – Besides the Shoes (The Crochet Crowd) & the Flower in her hair – I made her up as I went along!

Amazing Note in the Mail today!

HapThe Best Team Money Can Buypy Monday All!  Ok so this isn’t craft related and it’s not the Spinach Dip Recipe (which is coming) but I just had to share this today!

I few weeks ago I bought a book for my Husband called “The Best Team Money Can Buy” by Author Molly Knight.  He told me that on Twitter she said if we send a copy of the receipt she’d send us a book plate!

So I was like Ok sure!  Well I got it today!

To be honest I had NO idea what I was getting.  I thought it was like a Book Marker.  The envelope had no return address or anything.

 

Book PlateHere is the note I got. I was like Wow, maybe it was from one of my Ebay customers because I normally send a little Thank you note card & if they are a new customer I add my Business Card to it which has my Etsy shop on it.

So anyway – my Husband comes home and I said “Hey look what someone sent me in the mail today?” He was like “Hey that’s from Molly Knight, the Author from the book you bought me?” I was like WHAAATT???? He goes Yeah, I’ve seen on Twitter where others are Tweeting out that they got there’s and are sending in pics!  I couldn’t believe it!  It truly made my DAY!  Sometimes you have that inner doubt about things you make and something like this happens and it just makes you feel really Awesome & Good inside!

Ok, well just had to share that! I’ll be getting back to my recipe now and will have that for you 1st thing in the morning with a few pics and all!  As always thanks for stopping by and…..

Spring has begun….

533 Hello Crafters!

Can’t believe Spring is here! Sorry to have been MIA it was a super crazy busy end of 2014 and didn’t stop at the beginning of 2015!

I wanted to share a few things I’ve been working on. This time of year is when Baseball starts in my house so let’s just say “It’s all about that BASE” for sure!

I had an order for a Baseball Hat and soon I’ll have some in my Etsy shop!  Will post more little peaks on what I’m working on a little later too!

Love how this turned out! Below is a close up of the flower on the hat!  Isn’t the button just way to cute!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and as always……
