Help with Organizing???

Ok..... I have a lot of blogs and was trying to think of a better way to link them to each other in an easy to flow pattern....right now I have them listed in the right column but it can be confusing for visiting online friends....soooo I thought about an idea that maybe someone out in "webland" might have an idea to make my blogs flow better....so that my visitors would also go and see my other blogs, I have a recipe one, a reading one, 2 swapping ones, one about my family, one to learn more about me, and another one that I just chat and post on somewhat like this one....

Any ideas out there...

Great Tutorial and Good Help

One of the best tutorial's for putting in a lining in a crochet bag is over at Future Girl's blog...be sure and hop on over there...its awesome!!!
I have always wanted to master the zipper and learn how to make it look real professionally done. I can put one in but want to learn more of the "tricks of trade" sort of thing.
So I researched and this is what I came up with...a tutorial on U-handbag and also on Entral Designs over at Sew Mama Sew she has a zippered pocket tutorial
Adorable directions to crocheted cards over at Thimbleannas blog. She also made little bags that are adorable the pattern, is really easy to follow. I think you could then "design" it your own way with a little embroidery work making it personalized. :)

Halloween Trick or Treat

We went to our Halloween party last night and I dressed as Little House on the Praire, Bob was a dog and won the "ugliest" contest.. LOL he had the dog parts in all the right places as you can see... :)

There were quite a few good costumes ghosts, funny ones, and Sherry went as a character from Nightmare Before Christmas... ....

I made some candy for Halloween....the white one actually came out tighter, the orange yarn was a little too soft...I also made a cute Halloween bag for my daughter....

Projects and Things

I have been sick with a sinus infection which has left me down and housebound, actually other than the tiredness and nose running, it gave me lots of time to work on some of my projects. This is foxy's Halloween costume, she is a "Bee"...I am not too pleased in the style of the hat...but it works...she is not too happy with it either.. :) I finished my "Monster" Halloween guy, I think he is really cute...I made him a little different than the pattern, adding my own little touches..:)I got the pattern from, then I worked on the bride and groom Frankenstein from Vicky Howe and , I also completed the cutest Ghost "Boo" trio, designed by Beverly Mewhoter still have to add their eyes... ........along with my hat for my costume. I am going to be a "Little House on the Praire" mom....carrying a basket of flowers.. :) The dress is coming along too..... now I want to start making some Christmas decorations and presents...the Candy Corn bag, from Lion Brand, still needs to be felted, this is it before felting......and this little kitty candy basket I made last year.. :) Crochet Today has some great designs this month and I also have a "Holiday Door Hanger" book from Annies Attic that has some more designs I may make yet, Have you seen Lion Brands Halloween cuties, candy and lollipops...great ones for the table.. :) Plus Purple Kitty has a cute bag I would like to make and maybe make it with a Christmas design too????

Crafting Fun

Christmas is right around the corner and here are some wonderful gifts to make friends and family that can save you some $$$....

I was blog hopping and found this wonderful "instructable" site and it had a step by step instruction for making a pencil or change bag from any potato chip bag. How cute is that?

Then I found a wonderful paper bead "tutorial"

I also love tea bag folding...

This jewelry was made with plastic bags. Wow!! Now I can really get into this...

My Dachshund Doggy

I was in this swap for "Doghouse" in "All Around the House" over on Yahoo. And my partner. "M" has a Dachshund, so I thought I would design one for her. I just kind of designed it as I went along... I am so pleased at how cute it turned out that I think I may design other breeds as well... I used both felt and crochet....it even has eyelashes and a bell, with 2 charms that say "best" on one and "friend" on the other...details....Isn't it the cutest?
