Finished!

I haven’t posted since February and I promise I have reasons. Mostly I’ve been keeping busy with this:

New Amigurumi Creations

and THIS:Custom Order CollectionAnd that’s not even everything!

I have been working on this one fantastic, big order since the last week in January. I have crocheted over 70 items, 13 of which were completely new designs, and several more were adaptations of previous designs.

In the middle of all that crocheting, I took on a part-time, work-from-home job that I really enjoy. Recently, my mind has been whirling over whether or not to homeschool my children next year and how I would do it if we decide to go that route. Then there’s the daily fun of keeping my little lady growing and learning and not destroying herself or the house14131303668_5538e04c0c_bAnd all the end-of-the-year choir concerts, swim lessons, and school festivals with my kindergartener. Butterfly GardenIt goes without saying, the laundry hasn’t been put into its drawers as often and our dinners have been less than gourmet, of late.

I’m proud, though! It was such an amazing feeling to send this off this weekend:boxNow I have some catching up to do. If I want to do that holiday craft show again, I should get started right now. I would also love to get some inventory in the local shops. I’ve been feeling guilty about not keeping those shelves stocked.

This weekend was a good start. Since sending off that box, it has felt good to get some items back up in my Etsy shop, see some new orders come in, and get a blog post up again. I have so many new creations to present!

I don’t want to spoil too much about the contents of that big box with closeup photos quite yet…but, for now, here are some of my newest feline friends I made earlier this year!

I love making fat felines in all shapes and colors. If you’d like one of your own, send me a custom order request here.

I will definitely be posting throughout the summer with photos and journaling and updates. It’s good to be back!

Happy summertime, everybody!
