I thought it is about time I start posting the stuff I made for Christmas. I had a lot of fun this year and everyone liked their gifts. I love getting to be crafty/creative and making people happy.

Here are the arm warmers I crocheted for my Mom. She adores purple. She also has a severe form of arthritis, so keeping her wrists warm helps the pain. I made the pattern myself.

I also made her this beret. It matches her coat. I altered a pattern that I can't find at the moment. I will keep looking and post when I do. Sorry.

The handkerchiefs from the previous post I made for my step-dad, dad, brother, and 2 male friends. I have been making them for the men in my life for years. But it occured to me this year (after Christmas, of course), that even women can help save the environment. I use them myself. So next year I plan to make them for everyone.

I made this pin for my Mom and a friend. I'll be offering some in my Etsy store. Isn't it pretty?
This isn't everything. I'll post more soon. Hope you are staying warm!

My New Etsy Store

Yeah! I have finally opened my Etsy store. I plan to offer my patterns through there as well, but mostly it is for those of you who have expressed an interest in buying my work, not making your own. Here I plan to sell the samples I make for the patterns I sell, as well as other work. There are twelve items listed right now for you to check out.

A fun item is the set of custom made monogrammed handkerchiefs. A great Valentine's gift for the man in your life (I will gladly made them appropriate for women as well!) And they save the environment!

Requests for custom made jewelry are always welcome. Just e-mail me through my shop.

Make sure you save my store as a favorite. I will be adding more over time. If nothing else, it will be a good place to keep up on my current work.
