Woah, my desk is a mess. Although, maybe I prefer calling it 'controlled chaos', for, even though it is piled high with craft/school/financial/amigurumis/sewing machine/garbage/other random stuff, I still managed to find some partially finished scribbles of my Totoro pattern that I started a year and a half ago. Woot! (Random pattern scribbles complete with genuine… Continue reading A Totoro Pattern
I heart Totoro. I only discovered the movie about a couple of years ago, and I was completely swept away in the adorable whimsy of all. I even have a Totoro painting in my living room.

Apparently, it can only take so much of Boo climbing all over it.) I'm really liking this snowman. I've already made another one to give away for… Continue reading Snowman Pattern!
This week I started back to regular teacher's ed classes ... and I'm kinda bummed because I miss my students. Of the other people I've talked to, they feel exactly the same. We're all just counting the days until our next in-class placement. The only upside is that I've had some of my free time… Continue reading Christmas Crafty Prep
