Earrings

Earrings that I made....btw Mom, thank you so much for the jump rings!!!

These are made from buttons. I really like them b/c they are big but really light b/c they are buttons!!

Buttons and a left over spring from a printer.
These are the little plastic covers they put on screws from a bookcase...painted of course.
More things I scored from a printer.

Really Excited About this Post!

So I recently made a shrug. It came out really well, and it was nice, but I really wanted something else. Something more me. So I whipped up my own, creating my own pattern. I'm really proud of this one....lemme know what you think.

More crochet

So I believe that I mentioned before that I have been trying to use up my random skein here and there of yarn. Here are two more projects that I made:


This is the "Easy Shell Shrug" free pattern can be found on Ravelry.com.
It took me about a day and a half, and this is the 4th project this yarn has seen. It started as a bolero, turned into a purse and a snowflake, and will now stay as a shrug :) It was a little confusing in the beginning because the pattern instructions have some problems, and the author does not have the desire to fix them. So if you have any questions just ask!


This I actually finished last week. I really like how different this is and that it can be worn as an accessory. This pattern was a little confusing too, but easy once you get used to it. It took me a couple hours to make only because I had never worked with Homespun, and let me tell you, bad idea to use it for the first time with this pattern. Although I do really like how soft it is. Here is the link to the pattern:

Crochet shawl and headband

I have been rather sick lately...the kind of sick where you don't even want to get out of bed. But being me, I really get bored easily so I have been crocheting a lot lately. I am also determined to use up some of my odd skeins.

I previously made one of these shawls, but sent it to my sister(I kinda knew while I was making it, it would make its way to her). So I decided to make myself another one.



A super simple headband:


And playing around with eye makeup. I used blue on the lid, green in the crease, purple to line, and white to highlight brow bone and in inner corner.

Bored during a typhoon...maybe not!

So Typhoon Mufia has been hovering over us for the past couple days, which leaves a lot of crafting time for me!


Black feather earrings...I like that they are not too extravagant.
Made a coupon organizer b/c I was not able to find one since it is school time and supplies are limited.


A skirt from a sheet.Hair sticks made out of chopsticks. The ones on the left remind me of an octopus so I highlighted them with red/purple.

I am also working on a dress, which I am not completely happy with so I didn't want to post pictures until I tweek it a little.
