It has been a busy end of February around here. My fingers might fall off, I’ve been crocheting so much! I am desperately trying to make enough cute little geeky things to bring to Knightrocon this weekend, my first event as Happy Handmade! Check it out! http://knightrokon.com/ My friend, Jackie, invited me to share a craft table at UCF’s anime convention taking place THIS SATURDAY from 11am-11pm. I probably won’t stay that late into the night, but I’ll definitely be set up for the afternoon. I am so eager to see what, if anything, sells. If nothing else, it will be fun to hang out and be a part of it. I had big ideas for my nerdy inventory that I had to pare down a bit, due to an exciting development which I will reveal later this week. Still, I’ll have a cute little selection available. I’ll be sure to post lots of pictures!
Kidzart at Jhonen’s school was on Sunday and we had a great time. I volunteered to make the posters and hung out at the Portfolio-making table which reminded me of the good old days in the education department at the Orlando Museum of Art.
Here are the posters I spent way too many hours making.
Here are Jhonen’s Kidzart masterpieces! He, of course, liked the Cookie Decorating station the best and the evidence of that artwork was gone in about two seconds.
In other random news, I have an adorable new crafting companion. She goes with me wherever I go. I have tried many, many containers for carrying my yarn and tools with me and have struggled to find the perfect solution. I really loved this ridiculous purple glitter mini kaboodle chest for a while. At first it held the perfect amount of stuff without being too huge. It had a handle for easy carrying and a lock that kept it closed nicely. My son kept pulling the lock off, though, and I noticed if I ever had to carry around more than two balls of yarn at a time for color changed, my “treasure chest” couldn’t hold everything. Then my dog jumped off the couch right onto it and broke the entire lid off.
I’d been searching for a replacement and couldn’t decide on a nything. Well, you know that bee backpack and bee lunchbox I was pining over a few weeks back? We went ahead and got them fo my son. I love them so much and they make me happy every time I see them. One day a box arrived in the mail and Ben said it was for me. I couldn’t imagine what it could be. Then I opened it and found THIS. My new, adorable crochet bag. It’s perfect.
I should have LOTS more news including a fun announcement coming soon!! If you’re feeling nerdy, come out to Knightrocon and say hi!
Happy Leap Year Day, everybody!
