Update- My homemade VIPKID Dino went to China, creative stream, and donation links coming soon.

Hi, everyone it has been a hard few months for me emotionally and mentally, but I’m trying to get back to what I love- and that is to make my wonderful stuffed animals.

I have several big announcements today. So lets get started

I have say I have made a few new amigurumis in my hiatus, and I even sent one to my special student in China. Below is her picture with my creation.

I saw it in class today. How strange to see my item on the other side of the world in my student’s hand! The animal is VIPKID’s current mascot, DINO! I made him myself with several different pattern ideas. So I combined the ideas into one. I could modify the pattern just a bit more, but that was the final result.

I also have a business instagram page for all my crafts; you may want to visit this page to stay updated on my products and crafts. πŸ™‚ I only post products and things that I sell or make on this page. Please follow.

My second announcement is that I’m not partnering with Extra Life Children’s Hospital Research team and fundraising money to help sick children that need a chance at life. Every dollar counts so please donate at this link or please click on my banner somewhere here on the homepage. I’m trying to raise $100 at this time. This now leaves me to the biggest announcement of the day!!!

Beginning soon, once I get the swing of my equipment and picking a good time and place, I will be posting and going live on twitch creative and also posting past broadcasts on YouTube (link posted soon). There you will be able to watch me create items LIVE. You can visit stream at any time and donate via the papal button (which will be updated soon on the page). Once you donate $15 on stream, I will give a part of the proceeds to Extra Life for Children’s Research. I’m very anxious to get started on this new concept and idea.Β  I hope to see you on stream soon.

Don’t forget I do sell some of my crafts online at my etsy store. So don’t forget to follow and check that out. πŸ™‚

Like I told you.. I lot of things have been going for me, even though I’ve been struggling mentally, but I’m anxious to see where all this goes.

As always, keep crafting, and I’ll see you again very soon. πŸ™‚

The cuteness doesn’t stop

Hi everyone… I’m forwarding you over to my book review site today for an awesome book calledΒ Dumpling CatsΒ  by Sarah Sloyer. It is a crochet book and I loved it a ton. It has easy to make patterns and the cats are so cute, you’ll be obsessed with making them. They’d be an gift for Christmas for your cat lover.

Here it is… Source: I can’t take the cuteness!!! =DΒ 

Enjoy!!! See you soon everyone!!!

Happy Crafting and Happy Summer!!!

My own little project

Hi, everyone… Busy, busy, busy. I have two classes tonight. Yippee. I love my little friends. Even one invited me “over” for dinner. πŸ™‚ I wish I could go. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I wanted to give you an update on my crafting. I’m working on designing my own crochet needle case. I wanted something just for my Longer Tunsian hooks. They need a home. Since I have the needles, I thought why not try to stitch something really cool with the needles.

So far I’m making the item in two pieces. One is the pocket I will sew on. The second section will be the design for the cover. πŸ™‚ I’d like to make a separate pocket for each item, but so far I’m not sure how to do that without showing the stitching on the pattern. So I’m going to do some research right now on other patterns and how they made their pockets for each needle.

I hope you enjoy this update. Hopefully, I’ll get to post more frequently. It gives me something to look forward and to share with all my fellow crafters.

See you later.

Legend of Zelda Satchel–The completed project and the reaction

mSorry for the overdue posting. I got a really bad sinus infection. (So much for my English skills) I’m still recovering… still crafting… still teaching… But here’s the reaction of my latest project I mentioned in the previous two postings. (See the first one here, See the second on here) πŸ˜€

Wow! x45x really liked his Legend of Zelda bag. He’s gonna use it for his Lapras Pokemon water bottle. πŸ™‚ It fit perfectly in it. Β I got a super big hug for this creation. He was in total shock. That’s hard to do for a gamer, who has tons of awesome memorabilia of Β classic Nintendo characters. I’m always hunt for the coolest patterns. πŸ™‚

Here are some pictures of the final project:

He’s getting ready to stream, so you gotta go see all the action. Go to for the latest video gaming broadcast. Tell him I sent you! I’m lovebird1221. He’ll stream until about 9pm EST tonight. πŸ™‚ Obviously he’s one of my favorite people. lol

Later, I’ll post my newest Kirby. πŸ™‚ Not one Kirby looks alike. I’m not sure how to get around that issue yet. Practice makes perfect!

Happy crafting and enjoy a little video gaming on this first day of summer!

Working on my own pattern

Hi, folks.. I finished the Legend of Zelda bag for my best friend and gamer, x45x. He hasn’t come over to get his presents yet. 😦 He’s been spending about 8 hours a day streaming all his favorite games. (Find him on Twitch after 4pm everyday)

Right now, I got a slight cold, but I thought I’d drop a line or two to tell you about my latest project. Since I made the fore-mentioned bag above, I learned the Tunsian or Afghan crochet stitch. This stitch is awesome, because it is closely related to knitting. I have yet to get the hang of knitting. I tried a few weeks ago, but it was to no avail. Β Anyway, I decided I need to crochet hook case more my long tunsian needles. I’m in the process of learning a few things, but I’m going to make this really pretty case with a flower on it. I’m going to use the normal tunsian stitch, knit-stitch and, possibly the puff stitch for the flowers. I’ve drawn the items on graph paper and trying to see how I can do with this made up pattern. It’s my first made up pattern.

the next thing I’m going to make is my companies mascot, Dino the VIPKID Β dinosaur. I can’t wait to see what to do with him. I’m going to have to really think long and hard how to make him. πŸ™‚ I guess I can steal parts from Baymax and Yoshi to create him. πŸ™‚

I’ll try to post my patterns on my Ravelry page soon.

So nice to give you an update on my crafts. See you soon!

Coming up this week

Hi, folks. I have some exciting happenings this week. Along with my Etsy store, I’m also creating two other locations where you can purchase my products. On Instagram you can find my store site at and also I’m setting up another location where you can shop multiple products at once. πŸ™‚ At this another site you can also donate monies to some great charities and get some cool gifts too. πŸ™‚ This other store will be up soon. I’m in the process of working on the pictures for the products. Gotta get the right lighting. πŸ™‚

In addition, to my crocheted creatures I’m also making a pretty seed bead necklace. πŸ™‚ It’s a work in progress, but I’ll be finishing that up sometime later this week. I’ll post some pictures here and on my Instagram site for you to see. πŸ™‚ Then if it is worthy, I’ll post it for sale. πŸ™‚

Anyway, I hope you are having a great superbowl evening. And stay on the look out for my awesome products and stores. πŸ™‚
