Miss Piggy!

I crocheted a gigantic pig for Abby's birthday present; all credit goes to designshop.  it was fun doing this! though I had the hardest time tryin to attach the limbs.. i always do :( So I made a scarf (UW colored!) so at least make the head-to-body attachment hidden cuz it looks so funny!

Anyways here are those photos! I'm just glad it took an entire skein of pink Red Heart and none more!

Pretty cute pig!!!

Christmas Pottery Presents!!

So this christmas I painted two potteries! I'm actually quite happy with how they came out, and i'm also very jealous and would like to make one of them for myself!!! And i will.. SOON.

I thought I was quite creative this time around, and i'm also very proud!

Here are before and after photos!

Right after it was painted. NO STENCIL! I'm just that awesome :)

After the glaze! oh boy.  This was lovely.  I want.

Next, I made a .... DOGGY BANK! I mean, obviously meant to be a piggy bank.. but painted like a dog, more like Abby's dog as you can see below where she placed it right next to her puppy!
Before glazed

Isn't that cute? hahahaa.  I think i should have made the body a little bit more brown but oh well!
ok so, I .. want to paint myself a nintendo platter now.................

Santa's Little Helper Cat!

Well first of all, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
However, let's back track a little bit since I'm obviously a little behind with what i'm about to show you all (hence the title of the post).

The christmas season was quite busy, and getting that time off to be with my family and other half was extremely busy I just didn't have time to post Fibby's new outfit!

I originally meant to put Butternut (my family's persian cat) into the Santa outfit I made last year for Fibby and with Fibby in his new Elf outfit and take photos of them side by side. But I just didn't get that chance :(

Well here's the outfit! Again, credit goes to Diy Maven for the sweater; I modified again and elongated it, and then added in the others.  


I didn't actually end up making a "chin strap" on the hat, i don't know why. I guess I just didn't think about it! 

But anyways, Fib as usual doesn't care so much about having these sweaters on, and ended up sleeping with them on with me, purring away! It's just great to have a dog-like cat!
