This Morning on the train i was half way done with a Multi-colored purse that i started yesterday on my way home from work and i finished it today at lunch time. After making the purse i started a new project, In two hours I finished a newborn baby hat and a matching pair of gloves.
Last night i finished Ollie’s jacket on the train and i would say it took me about 4 hours to complete, if i would’ve crochet straight through. When i got home i started making another jacket (black with colorful specs) but half way through i got tired and decided to call it a night! As i said before i usually make one item a day,but i just remembered after making Ollie’s coat i had a little yarn left over and i made a baby hat which took me about an hour.
I wanted to give a shout out to my cousin SERGIO… when i saw him yesterday , he told me that he reads my blogs and it meant a lot to me! It’s always nice to know that family supports you , so here’s to Sergio Torres Jr. ( AKA-Ghost Face) what’s popping cuzzo! yesterday was such a great day, my mom got to meet my godson for the first time and i got a chance to bring the dogs with me upstate so they could run free in my mom’s backyard for a few hours. We also decided to take a nice walk to the carnival which was a few blocks away , but unfortunately we got poured on in the process with the baby & 4 dogs, but i must say it was a memorable occasion! Besides all the fun i had on Easter I’ve been working really hard on making some new purses and a few new dog jackets for the spring.I finally got to see my besty Kimmie after 8 months and meet her lil pup ollie boom boom. I just started making a really cute jacket for him and i want Kimmie to know that i love you and thanks for everything, ollie’s jacket will be done by tonight!
I’ve been trying to decide all week what to get my sister’s for Easter, and i finally came up with a great idea. I thought instead of buying them an Easter basket filled with candy like i usually do, i could crochet them a bunny bucket. I like to think of my gifts as unique & irreplaceable, but of course i waited till the last minute to start working on them. As of right now i have made two bunny buckets and i have one left to put together for Skyler ( my godson). I also made the cutest little camera case yesterday with a braid strap and i can’t wait to wear it.
Between making baby stuff and dog jackets, i haven’t decided which one entertains me more. I was suppose to start working on arm warmers, but 5 lines in i found myself already bored and decided that making a pretty pink dog jacket would be a much better idea. Now that spring is approaching, i thought my crochet business would take a big hit but it definitely feels like fall out there. So on a colder note thank you mother nature for keeping me in business, just take it easy with the rain…..
Today i want to share a short story with you. I was sitting on the train and a little boy sat in the empty seat next to me as his father stood up in front of him. when a few stops passed, i spotted an available seat right across from me, and i thought if i got up, than this father could sit next to his son. All it would take was a few seconds to get up and move so i just did it. About 10 min. later i looked over and the father was reading his son a book as the boy snuggled up on his shoulder. I really felt like i made that little boy’s morning. All it took was a small kind gesture to brighten up their day. I thought if everyone took 5 minutes out of their day to make someone Else’s life a little better this world would definitely be a better place to live in.
My weekend was spent making a very special bunny cocoon for a little baby boy expected to make an appearance in July. Ever since i got into fabric paint, I’ve been fixated with decorating anything i can get my hands on. In honor of Natalie Dee ( One of the Artist i love) i have made a bag for myself and numerous onesies for my adorable godson, i even decorated a hat! I hope you enjoy my creations and if you have any questions or suggestions send me a comment.
I want to introduce the world to my godson Skyler Lee Cruz. He is the most docile little boy I’ve ever met & of course he is adorable. I seem to be amazed by every little thing that he does, especially when he smiles i seem to melt into a million pieces! I hope to fill you with instant positivity by posting this picture, if you were feeling down you won’t be anymore after looking at this beautiful tiny face, enjoy!
Yesterday i was browsing on google searching for cute art, when i came across chibird, and it just so happened that she has a blog just like me. I instantly felt like i made a friend when i saw that she was also a member of wordpress. Her artwork/comics are not only cute, but they are positive and funny, just what i was looking for.
