Blog Hop Day 3 and my Fancy Bonnet for Breezy Nights on the Deck


You can start your voyage by clicking on the button above.


It's a Pirates Life Blog Hop
Welcome to the last island stop on the Blog Hop!  You're almost there.

ARRRGH Mates! I'm your serving winch on the Daniels Ship of Thieves.

Okay, so don't laugh too much!  This is me in a new hat I knitted up for my daughter before it gets too chilly in the great NW where she lives.  One of my favorite activities in Fall and Winter is knitting.  I usually start ramping up around this time, so that I have at least SOME sort of chance to get presents ready in time for the holidays.

Here is a close-up on the wonderful felt flower from Pinque Peacock I used:


And with that, I will say AHOY! mates.

Navigate your way to Pinque Peacock's Facebook Page to say hello to our Captain and Chief, Queen Peacock, and the owner AND creator behind all the wonderful products!

Nice to see you, Bek! It gives me an opportunity to thank you again for the wonderful hat you knit me! It was 44 here Thursday morning, so my hat from you will hit my head shortly, I fear!

Inspirational Unity Blog Hop

I have three huge passions related to art: photography, jewelry making, and paper crafts. Above combines two of those passions: jewelry making and paper crafts. The necklace featured is a gift for a friend. I used Unity Stamp Company stamps in all the projects shown in the picture above. If you look closely, you'll even see that I used the Hawaiian Border and the swirls in the lambs fleece of Love Ewe to make the bronze charms in the jewelry above! Besides the stamps used, other materials included Bronz Clay, antiqued bronze findings, and various beads. Of course, what gift isn't complete without packaging? You can find the tutorial for the bag Here . Paper and cardstock, punches, and ribbon used are from Stampin Up! while the stamp used is from Unity's March Kit of the Month . People who know me know how I strive to use humor everyday...and especially to make light of otherwise stressful situations. So, my quote for the day has absolutely nothing to do with my project. I

Warm Little Sweetness

I must admit that I have become quite fond of making little bitty sweaters.   It all started on a recent trek to India traveling for business. I needed to carry just enough yarn to keep my busy bee hands occupied during the evenings in my hotel room. There are just so many hats a person can make, right?  Anyway, having limited quantities of yarn, I decided to give a small sweater a go.  This is the first one I created. I had just the perfect little buttons to add! (It really is amazing what one might find in their cosmetic bag) I love it.  This sweater is also featured on the Pinque Peacock blog   since I used her buttons.  (Go visit and see the buttons up close) This makes the sweater a really one of a kind project! This next one is perfect for a little preemie.  It's so tiny, but features a great big snowflake! Close up of the snowflake…. I also sewed on one of the StampinUp! Frosted Finishes Embellishments.  I think it finished it off nice
