I’m working on my first card for American Greetings. Can you tell I am procrastinating? It’s is a great learning experience and it’s really helping me get my lettering up to snuff. By that I mean – more contemporary.

Anyway, I have lettered “Happy” about 300 times in the past 24 hours so I’m taking a “happy” break. 🙂

Here is another gift I crocheted this year. These were for my neices. One day I was over babysitting and I was knitting a hat for someone. They asked if I could knit them a ballerina and a dolly in a blue dress. Hmmm… I’m on it! So this got me interested in amigurumi. For those of you that don’t crochet, I think that is the japanese art of crocheting or knitting stuffed animals or toys or something. It is addictive! And fun. My problem is I like to finish things at one sitting so that means I stayed up wayyyy too late making each of these! But the girls loved them and that was totally worth it. They even sleep with them. 🙂

Once, again I went to etsy for the pattern. This one is from AJollyShop. I modified the pattern a little to make the ballerina tutu.
