Hey Mom - Look what I made

I don't get sick.  It has been a looooong time since I have been ill.  My super immunity streak ended yesterday.  Boo!  I have actually had a fever.  This is a pretty big deal for me because I am usually the one that is able to stay healthy even if everyone around me is sick.  Well, here I am, forced to stay in bed.  I'm bored and have a case of cabin fever.  It makes my face look like this:

Ok, my pity party is over now... moving on ...

I have been wanting to post some projects that I have finished and have been meaning to post pictures of.  I like finishing projects :-)

I made this Anthropologie-esque necklace based on this tutorial.  I love love love my necklace and have received lots of compliments on it.  I think that it is probably my favorite accessory right now.

(Forgive me for the horrible pictures on this one)  I made this super chunky cowl from a pattern made by Hey Jen Renee.  I can't find the actual pattern link.  This one was made to be a cowl that you double up around your neck, but when I do that I feel like a football player.  I like it as a big infinity shawl.  It's comfy cozy...and it helped me master the seed stitch (all you knitters know what I am talking about there).

These slippers were made using this pattern.  They are cute and lightweight.  I wish that I knew where they are right now.  I would like to be wearing them :-)

I have a few other projects that are finished, but I do not have pictures of them and quite honestly I just don't feel like getting my camera out right now :-)  Gives you something to look forward to.

Since I greeted you with a frown, I just have to leave you with a smile:

...because that is one of the things that I do best :-)  ... and it's good medicine .... good for the heart, good for the soul, good for the face.  Smile on.


  1. Such cute stuff. I really need to make those slippers. I've been holding onto the pattern... :) Feel better. :)

  2. Hi, You're pretty... and I want all those pretty things you made! (especially that necklace) its amazing! K, thanks ;) Feel better!!

  3. you even look fab when you're sick....and you need to make up some inventory so I can include it in my booth that I'm thinking of having at the Cooper Young Festival...I can include your stuff with mine, as long as it's all hand made art. I can get away with mine since it's all recycled items. So get to working and figure out your sale prices and hopefully we'll score a booth!
    loveyatons....and hope you're all
