Leg Scrub & Desk Organizer

I found these around the web and decided to kind of bookmark them on this blog to try later. The desk organizer I am specifically excited for; I have loads of shoe boxes, and I'm sure I'll build up some toilet paper rolls in no time.

Little Bunny Blue

I tried another amigurumi piece of cuteness, using this Sweetheart Bunny pattern. I completed the head first... then learned by accident that I'd been crocheting incorrectly! I was doing an action called "crocheting though the back loop", which I thought was a normal crochet stitch. It turns out I need to be inserting the hook through both legs of each stitch.

So because of this, my projects have always been bigger than the pattern suggested they'd be, and you could see in between the holes in the holes since they were more prominent. After making the head too large, I had to alter the rest of the pattern to fit the size. I think it turned out well enough, but could definitely be better. At least I know for my next project!

(Sorry for the poor lighting. There has been no sunlight for weeks now.)

Finished Slime-in-a-bottle Picture

I realized I never posted the finished bottle of slimes, complete with aloe gel to keep them floating happily in place. So, here's a look!

In addition, here's my first big crochet project, completed a few months ago. I did up a fox doll based on a pattern that I can't seem to recall. It's around somewhere on the internet :I Regardless, I did not make this pattern for the fox, or the hat. I did make the hair on my own, simply by sewing it in with a yarn needle. If you remove the hat, there is actually a little bald spot underneath, almost like a monk, ha ha.

Slimes in a Bottle

This is a project I've been excited to do for a very long time. I saw picture of some little slimes in a bottle of some kind of gel on Etsy, and I knew I just had to have them. But like heck I was going to buy them when I was confident I could make my own :D

Cut to about a year later, and now here they are, after gathering motivation and materials alike. These are made of Sculpey clay, and painted with craft acrylics,  then finished with a coat of shiny varnish. The three small ones are for the jar, and the other two are just for me to have around as little figurines. I filled the bottle with aloe gel, as it's clear and semi-solid, so it would hold the slimes in place. I haven't taken a picture of the aloe filled bottle yet, but I will shortly and show off the finished project. I am so excited to have this at last. Slimes are simply awesome and cute and one of my favourite creatures ever!

What is your favourite video game monster? Or monster in general?

Photography Attempts

These are some self-done photos of me I did at the beginning of our unusually cold June. After hanging out with my friend Carolynn and seeing her be so enthusiastic about photography, I felt just bold enough to put my own face in my pictures for a bit. They're not that great though, ha ha.

These pictures ended up telling a story in my mind a little, and they inspired me to create a new character, named Hannah Rae. She's kind of the fantasy, insightful, gentle side of my mind. She is some kind of anthropomorphic dragon-elf thing.
