The Holidays are coming!!!!

I am gearing up for the Holidays in my Etsy shop [link]. If you are interested in anything listed you should act fast, I won't have much time to make duplicates of what's listed. I will be taking commissions for a while but there will have to be a cut off on those too, so I can get things done and delivered in time for the holidays.

More Etsy Stuff

I've been working on a few things for my Etsy shop. I've made a Weedle it took a while to put together the 25 separate pieces to make it
and a Shuppet, I used my castform pattern and gave this one a stuffed body instead of the usual open ghosty body, I wanted it to be able to stand on its own
and a Tangela, I made this one with a black and blue body and then 2 different shades of blue for the tangles, the tangles are varying lengths of chains and the 2 sc worked in each chain. Each tangle is worked from the body in FLO and then after I had enough, I aranged them and sewed them down.
as my newest pokemon in the shop. I have also remade a few that sold like Diglett with popcorn stitch rocks
Shuckle with 3 spouts on its back
and Bulbasaur with a bulb that has overlapping leaves
Kinda taking a break from crochet for a bit though, I have too many things that need to get sold and not a whole lot of motivation to make anything else. Once in a while I get a commission that is too good not to try, like the Lapras or the Groudon pokemon I made.
These were all made with my personal patterns

Long time no blog

Sorry I haven't come up with any new patterns lately. I have been busy with commission sales from my Etsy store. I've made a few pokemon for my customers
And finished up my lightsaber rainbow, unfortunately the buyer turned out to be a scammer with stolen checks. That was a fun and strange police report for the fraud department. At least the officer liked my mini lightsabers and he might purchase one later.
and I have been working on some baby items for my nephew who is recently married to his long time fiance and now they are expecting their first child together. My new niece-in-law has two other children and I am trying to make some things for them as well so they don't feel left out or get jealous.
  On top of all of this, I am still trying to get my 20 year old to FINALLY register for college classes or get a job. My son just started middle school, and on his 3rd day of school he got off the bus at the wrong stop and got lost. I had to call police and file a missing person report. Poor kid, it was his birthday and he was so excited to get home he got off at the 2nd stop instead of the last stop and the bus driver was useless, he had no clue about keeping the kids safe and disregarded a rule about writing down the names of the kids and the stops they are at. I'm also still caring for my parents while my mother fights cancer and my dad copes with COPD. And if that wasn't enough, my husband killed his 3rd car in as many years and is using mine to get back and forth to work leaving me stuck at home 5 days a week.
