Twinkle Toes - Pass Me the Chocolate

New Year's Eve is just around the corner!  I cannot believe a year is already almost over.
Celebration in the midst.  Going to party this year.  We usually don't.
It's really swanky, and the hostess is a fashion queen, so what better gift than a shoe full of chocolate? (well, I can think of few better items, but not ones I can afford).

If you are interested in creating one of these for yourself, you can see the pattern here:
And of course, the focal point and attention grabber is the center.  Another wonderful Pinque Peacock Splendid Swirl.

So, what are you doing for New Year's Eve? I hope that whatever it is…you feel joy.
And smile.

My Special Boy

Oliver was the only one at Christmas that cooperated for a shot in front of the tree.  And everyone wonders why he's my favorite!

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 blogsince 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 nicely, don't you?

Now…to find little tyk…
