Hello Ladies and Gents,
I have procrastinated again by not posting which is not a great thing when you need some followers!
Well on Saturday I was able to snag myself a Treasury on Etsy and I called it CANADA does PURPLE. It features some amazing Canadian artists that have come up with wonderful items in of course the shade of purple. I really LOVE Purple! The treasury is getting some good hits and I hope the stores that I picked do benefit from it.
On another note, as my last post promised I am also in the Children's Showcase today Monday May 25, 2009. Hopefully I do get some hits even though it is a holiday in the United States today.
Oh yes I have also come up with a new headband an adjustable one to be exact. It's pretty cute, it has a large flower attached to it also. It has a small cord adjuster so it will fit infants to toddlers. Check it out in my shop.
I can't forget I have also added a Canada Flag hair clip to my collection. Canada Day is coming up soon and I figured some Mommy's would love the clip for their little one's.

I have uploaded my etsy shop with a couple of new crochet hair clips. There is a new vibrant red one and a pink one. I also designed a new daisy hair clip with wool felt that I posted a couple of days ago. I have been posting a lot lately because I signed up for a Showcase on the 25th of May, so I want to have a good selection of items to choose from. Keep your eyes out for me!

Well I had a very busy weekend. My daughter was baptised on Mother's Day ( Sunday) which was very exciting and special. Everything went really really well. After the baptism we had a lovely family brunch and I really had a wonderful Mother's Day.
I did have a bit of time though to make a few things and ended up making my daughter this new pair of pants. I have so much fabric laying around and have finally decided to start using it. I crocheted the little white flowers and added them to the pants. I think it's different and unique. Maybe I should start a new clothing line :)
I also updated my CraterJewellery sight on etsy with a couple of new necklaces. I have really really procrastinated and haven't been uploading a lot so I thought I would crack down and start doing some stuff. I have been waiting for my husband to fix up my Crater website so things could start looking a lot better. He redesigned it for me but I have to say I don't like it very much and actually liked the old design a lot better.
Time to wake up the little one. Two hour naps go by so fast!

I had posted a new little blue bird hair clip about a week ago and last night I made this cute little kitty clip. It really is a lot of fun making these clips they come out so cute! I use 100% wool felt for all my clips. I find it makes them stronger and better made. I also hand-cut each of my appliques and hand sew them also. I have a few more ideas in mind but I just have to get around to doing them.

Well since I have a bunch of fabric laying around that I haven't been using I decided to make one of those pillow case dresses that are so popular right now. I found a tutorial on youtube that was very helpful, here is the link
I did modify the directions a bit to fit my little one who is a skinny minny. I also used bias tape instead of the fabric around the arm holes. I think it turned out great and can't wait for her to wear it out.

Well yesterday I had the urge to make my little one a hat. I found this cute pattern in a book for a crochet baseball cap so I started to crochet the pattern and of course it ended up turning out a little large and not exactly what the picture was showing me. Well instead of pulling it all apart like I had already done once, I decided to modify it and this is what I came up with. I added the small flower for an accent. I think she looks adorable with it on.

Ok so this is my first blog post. Forgive me if my posts are not too interesting yet :) What have I been up to besides taking care of my almost 2 year old who keeps me very very busy. It's a wonder I even have time to make hair clips, jewellery or anything else for that matter! I have had some time to come up with some new hair clip designs that are made with 100% wool felt.
The hair clip that is pictured is one of my crochet accomplishments.
I have also stopped procrastinating and have finally uploaded some of these new clips onto my etsy site. Come by and check them out and tell me what you think?
Little one calls so I'm off for now! :)
