Weekly Craft Update – October 14, 2014

Look at me! Two weeks in a row! lol

Big. Huge. News. I finished!!! Yup, Sunday October 12th, I finished the ballerina. Yesterday she got her bath, and pressed today.

The first official completion picture is this…


Today, after bath and pressing, here she is, ready for frame quoting lol…


From February 4th when I first pulled it out of my unfinished project box, to October 12th. Just over 8 months of work, and I must say I’m very proud.

So, being that I am getting back into my crafting groove, and trying to complete smaller projects for gifts and my etsy site (see about me for link), I immediately dove back into my unfinished projects box and dug through my unopened kits. This little beauty was the first thing I pulled out, shouldn’t take me long to knock out now that I’ve fixed a small mistake on one section. Here it is straight out of the box…


And after a couple days of work…


And last update for you, the little more work done on the crochet bag…


And lastly, my big news of last week… I got a chance to meet Chryssie Whitehead this past Friday. Look her up if you don’t know who she is. Having recently finished the final season of Warehouse 13, this was a lot of fun for me, and make me a very happy nerd lol.

All for today fabulous readers! Keep smiling!


About craftymomchronicles

Okay, so this is where I am supposed to be witty and cute and tell you how funny and awesome I am to get you to read my blog. Well….. not sure how that is going to work. I am a stay at home mom of two, one is my minime high school student and theater chick, the other is my homeschooled dancing dude, who is momma’s lil man. I get to stay at home and do all this cool stuff thanks to my awesomeness hubby who works his tush off so I can. Of course staying at home isn’t for everybody, and we’ll dive into THAT some day I’m sure, but I love it, and I have my crafts to keep me busy. That is what started this whole thing. Hubby said to me “babe, you should start blogging” and well, here I am. Good luck and enjoy! And yes, I do approve all comments, but don't think I'm censoring everybody. I will let negative ones through as long as everybody plays nice. View all posts by craftymomchronicles
