Busy Busy Busy

I've been crafting feverishly since Thanksgiving:

My friend Elizabeth and I hosted a Christmas Pinterest party where we made adorable ornaments - snowmen made from fingerprints, quite the cute and personal gift for grandparents.

However, the hit of the day was the travertine coasters, hand-stamped with the monogram of the recipient. These turned into my "go to" gift of the season for friends and family. I think, in all, I stamped about 40 sets of four.

As if that weren't enough, I posted a pic to Facebook of a pair of fingerless gloves I knitted for the Punk. Next thing I know, I have orders for 20 (!) pairs! Hello extra Christmas money! Finally I'm down to my last pair and a half before I've filled all the orders. Maybe I'll actually get to make something for myself soon.

Or maybe now's the time I should look into that Etsy store? :)

On an Afghan Kick

I've been on an afghan making kick lately. Here are some of my latest exploits:

A sweet pink crochet afghan for baby Reese.

The Lion Brand "Sunshine Day" afghan. I made two of these - one for a baby gift for someone who works with my aunt and one for me. I currently have another one (different color way) on the needles now. It's a great way to use up leftover yarn from other projects.

Lastly, I've been making versions of this stinkin cute toddler hat with interchangeable flowers. I just wish my toddler would wear it!
