Zombies seem to be popular right now, for reasons I really don't fully understand.  Movies like Shawn of the Dead and Zombieland are entertaining for sure (I can't lie, both those movies are hilarious--see 'em!), but I'm not running out to get a t-shirt or anything.  That said, I found some zombies that I'm totally excited about:  Zombie Felties!

I'm thinking of trying to make the pirate zombie first...maybe the classic zombie.  I'll post again when I get one done!  The directions are simple and, and I really love this:  you don't need to blow up any of the templates for the zombie parts.  So, you can trace right from the book if you want.   The beads are probably the most expensive and hardest parts to find, which are relatively easy to find and not really expensive.  My husband wants me to make some of these and put santa hats on them for Christmas ornaments....yikes.  We'll see!

Happy Crafting!

Stamping fun!

I tried my hand with unmounted stamps and bought some from Oxford Impressions. They have *amazing* high quality red rubber stamps.  If you like stamping, you really should stop by.  Here's a picture of their "Steampunk Works" collection:

 I bought the  "Classic Alice" set of stamps and had a lot of fun playing with them yesterday.  It's so economical and easy to do stamping this way!  Mounting the stamps to EZ mount foam is ridiculously simple (step #1: peel, step #2: stick!) and then they're ready for use with any acrylic block.  You can watch the youtube video for details:

Halloween Mini Album

I made a Halloween recipes mini album!  The recipes I used were all super simple and made with only a few ingredients.

If you can't read the recipes and want them, let me know and I can email them to you or post them if there's interest.  Enjoy!

Hello, Hello!

I'm new to the whole "blogging" experience, but I'm excited to see how it goes!  The holidays are coming up, so I'm eager to get some crafting projects done!

I'm going to be making Christmas cards this year and I have two baby blankets to knit: one by December and the other by January.  When I get those done, I'll post some pictures.  I'm making the 'Big Bad Baby Blanket' out of Stitch and Bitch...which is a relatively easy one to do.  If you're new to knitting (or looking for a reference), this book is awesome!  Do yourself a favor and get it!
