Crafties!

Sorry I have been away so long. Trying to fulfill my new years resolution of working out 4-5 days a week (and I made it 3 weeks already!!). So now that everything has calmed down from the holidays and I am on a new schedule, hopefully I will have more project to show off ;-) Here is what I have been doing:


We went to a holiday social, but I only have two non-formal dresses...I'm not the dressy type. But only having two dresses gets boring, so I changed it. This is what it looked like before:

It was strapless, with a bow just under the bust, and a thick black ribbon that went around the bottom. It showed a little more cleavage than I would have liked for such an event.


I moved the bow up to the shoulder and added black ribbon straps, which showed less cleavage. The dress stayed the same color, even though it doesn't look like it. The actual color is closest to to the picture on the bottom.
I started up a crochet group out here to teach others for free how to crochet, so these were my Xmas presents to them, in addition to a card with stitch abbreviations.
I previously made one of these before, and decided to make another one this Xmas. But, I gave it away, so he is currently somewhere in the US now, where it is colder, and he won't melt ;-)
These are my first pair of fingerless gloves, and one of the only patterns I liked.

This is actually paper towel and toilet paper tubes glued together to make wall art. I really like the look of it, and it's really fun to do :)

Happy New Years!

Hey everyone, sorry for no posts in the past couple weeks. I have been extremely busy with work, holidays, and helping my friend move. That doesn't mean that I have not been crafting though, so I do have pictures! So...hopefully since the holidays are over, I will get back in the swing of things, and work on my new year's resolution at the same time :) Enjoy the rest of your holidays (I know some that still have holiday parties to go to)!!
