Crafting, crafting update, reason to blog

Happy 2 Year Anniversary

This month marks that two years ago, I started this blog because of a college project. Today, I’m trying to manage 4 other blogs. It gets confusing sometimes. lol

I still love to post and share stuff here online of my crafts and so much more. I always think and feel I could do more but I don’t ever get the change to do cool videos or anything in particular, but once in a while I love to share with you photos of my crafts.

I thank my followers that do follow me on here and on my social media sites. I appreciate it greatly.

Stay tuned for more awesome crafts in the coming year. I’m hoping I’ll be able to do more as I adjust to my teaching job and other things around me. 🙂

See you soon and happy crafting!

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. 🙂 I wish I could go. 🙂

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. 🙂 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

Sorry 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) 😀

Wow! x45x really liked his Legend of Zelda bag. He’s gonna use it for his Lapras Pokemon water bottle. 🙂 It fit perfectly in it.  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  classic Nintendo characters. I always hunt for the coolest patterns. 🙂

Here are some pictures of the final project:

He’s getting ready to stream, so you gotta go see all the action. Go to Twitch.tv/x45x for the latest video gaming broadcast. Tell him I sent you! I’m lovebird122107. He’ll stream until about 9pm EST tonight. 🙂 Obviously he’s one of my favorite people. lol

Later, I’ll post my newest Kirby. 🙂 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!

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 Inselly.com/GabisWhatKnotsandMore and also I’m setting up another location where you can shop multiple products at once. 🙂 At this another site you can also donate monies to some great charities and get some cool gifts too. 🙂 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. 🙂

In addition, to my crocheted creatures I’m also making a pretty seed bead necklace. 🙂 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. 🙂 Then if it is worthy, I’ll post it for sale. 🙂

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

Here are my critters… :-)

I’m so happy to share with you my new critters. I posted them on Instagram for my followers, who are becoming a lot of spammers. (That is annoying!) I know it is late but I have to share these with you. I love my critters and my brother and best friend (who is in Finland I’m sure playing Smash Bros on Wii U, shout out to x45x) loved them.

Here’s Baymax.. He’s tiny and cute. Ian loved him. 🙂

Then there’s bulbasaur. He’s seriously tiny. Tinier than I thought he’d be. I found the pattern on Ravelry and I want to thank Nicole’s Nerdy Knots for the pattern.

My #bulbasaur #mini #amigurumi. So happy!!! #itsforchristmas I love him he's cute…

At this point, I’m feeling pretty serious about crafting and crocheting these critters. I’ve been doing them for almost a year and I really love them. I’ve opened an Etsy store, but I don’t get many customers. I’m thinking about maybe going into town to see if the Gifted Child would be interested.  It’s a possibly if I could sell these things I’d make big money. 🙂

Let me know what you all think.

Christmas is coming!!

I’m so excited.. I’m working on some mini amigurumis and I can’t wait to show you what I’ve created. The items are still being created. They take me slightly longer at times, because they are mini and are hard to see. I should’ve put a table magnifier on my list. lol 😀

Because they are Christmas gifts, I will not shout out to whom they are for at this time nor will I tag them in my pics. I’m trying to work fast on one because my best friend announced a couple of weeks ago he’s headed to Finland for New Year’s and leaves the day after after Christmas. He won’t be back for almost a month. I’m going to miss him tons. Makes me sad thinking about it. ;-(

Here’s an update: I’m trying to post my crafts once and a while on Instagram. My name is Musicgurl4vr on there so if you like what you see on this page feel free to follow and let me know you found my name on here. 🙂

I also love to take pictures of random stuff. I probably almost post something everyday; it’s sort of like a picture journal. lol I hope I don’t annoy you with my postings.

Anyway, until next week with my mini amigurumis… See you then.

More crafting ahead

Oh boy!! Guess its been awhile folks. Got busy again… Finishing up my wedding planning course I’ve been taking. Yes, I’m almost done. The final projects were getting me busy!!!

Upcoming posts:

Shortly, I’m posting about my latest Pokemon creation. Pikachu! We all love Pikachu and thanks to the designer at 53stitches.tumblr.com, Pikachu has come to life for me. So watch for that post soon.

My Martha Stewart Loom and I aren’t getting along. The relationship doesn’t seem to be working out. lol I can crochet like crazy, but the loom makes me feel handicapped for some reason. I don’t know what is causing that. Therefore with every relationship, there is going to be hardships, so I got to try to work with it. 🙂 It’s me and not the loom. 😀 Although, I think I’m going to do a review on the loom shortly, because I have a few complaints about it.

Stay tuned… And Keep crafting

Hearts always,

Gabby
