I was asked to make a teddy bear for my coworker to give to her nephew for his 1st birthday. She had a special request for the baby’s initials to be on the bear. I don’t have experience embroidering other than eyebrows or eyelashes, but I knew I could figure it out once I did…… Continue reading Crochet Teddy Bear with Embroidered Initials
I’m a good home baker because I follow recipes as they were written and have the proper tools needed to complete those recipes. My best tool is my kitchenaid stand mixer. However, that is not the only tool that is necessary to create the French Macaron. Although I would like to say everyone is able…… Continue reading How I Mastered the French Macaron
The fair ended a month ago. I’ve been busy, got sick, and my phone went kaput. Plus, I didn’t win this year. I didn’t even get an honorable mention. After seeing the other entries in person, I can tell that the judges were attracted to farm theme items only. In addition, whoever displayed my camping…… Continue reading OC Fair 2019
The OC Fair has officially begun and it’s time for me to reveal my entries. This year, I decided to try my hand at another subcategory: 3D art. It’s a vague category considering all dolls, animals, and toys are 3D. It’s actually somewhat the same subcategory as dolls, but last year the division winner entered…… Continue reading Orange County Fair 2019 Crochet Entries

I had a commission request this past Christmas for a Saoirse doll from Song of the Sea. I very rarely do commissions as I have a full-time job and try to have a life sometimes, but it was Christmas and I like these original requests. I didn’t see any patterns online for a doll like…… Continue reading Saoirse the Doll from Song of the Sea
I made this mermaid doll for my niece for Christmas and never got around to posting it. I adapted several patterns I had to make it. As with most of my projects, once I finished it, I had so many ideas on how I would make an even better one. So I did! The second…… Continue reading Mermaid Doll
This is more of a brag post than anything. I’m not planning on going through the steps of how I made it because there’s so much information online already. For instance, I take a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest. So, when my sister in law asks me if I can make my niece’s birthday…… Continue reading Rainbow Unicorn Birthday Cake, Oh My!
I’ve been on a baby shower kick! I had a coworker who was pregnant and a cousin who recently announced to me that she is pregnant. Both were/are expecting boys. I’m not much of a baby blanket person. I’ve only made two squares to contribute to a group gift blanket before. For some reason, it…… Continue reading Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
