Pumpkin Carvin Contest(Villain Edition)!!

The deadline is this Saturday(21st)!! Check out the contest page here; they’ve already posted up some pretty awesome entries. I actually haven’t made mine yet…and i’m kind’a thinking of crocheting one since it doesn’t technically say you have to use a real pumpkin. Nor do you have to carve one mind you…check out the rules(anything goes!).

The one pictured above isn’t mine(i’m not that talented lol) it’s just my fave so far, Zelda being one of my faves and all.. :D. And don’t forget Moogle, he’s included in the 1st prize package!!! So i probably won’t win first prize(lol) but i’m still in for the others which are just as awesome(and the prize packages are huge!). There’s not many entries thus far so, more of a chance to win!!! Good luck! ;D.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

So, we've waited 2+ years for this and it finally happened. I got tickets as a bday present for the fiance and have schedules various times but it's always been canceled for some reason or other. We drove out twice and it was canceled last minute(which wasn't great since we're at least 1.5hrs away, depending on where they lift off). But, yesterday was it.

It was a lot hotter than i expected(due to the flames) yet it was awesome. We ended up landing on private property at some kind of horse ranch. The owner was pissed and wouldn't let the others in(to retrive the basket via truck). So we ended up hauling everything to the next farm where the others were waiting. That basket is like, 600lbs...the balloon alone was 400 yet it was doable with 8 people. In the end no one was arrested and everyone got out safely(lol).

8-Bit Sonic Reversible Pillow!

This takes you back, doesn’t it? Back to the days of the sega-genesis. I was always a Nintendo girl, but, Sonic was always all right. This one however is made via Tunisian crochet with the simple(aka afghan) stitch.

He’s available at my shop here(amongst others). Custom orders are always welcome ;).

Dracula Bunny!!! 

I very recently made this for a challenge, isn’t he cute? The pattern is available at my shop here. The item itself will be on sale at the Mom’s Basement’s Shop(here), all tho i don’t think they have him posted up yet(so keep checking!). In the spirit of October; the costume here is removable and the bat is a pin you can use elsewhere(if you wish). FYI all revenue from that shop is going to the 'Child's Play' it's an awesome cause!!Yay! :D

Pumpkin Carving Contest!! 

At Mom’s Basement(check them out here). $500+ worth of prices, Moogle here is included in the first place prize basket(lol). You don’t have to just carve either, but anything goes(paint, craft, anything…).

Just a few fyi facts about Moogle; he’s huge. 8.5”x10” and that’s without the antenna(which makes him over 12”, and is posable as well). He’s inspired by the Kingdom Heart games. At my shop(here), he alone would go for $50(+shipping). Custom orders welcome ;D.

Legend of Zelda: Magic Beans

I made this pin(yes, it's a pin!) a while ago for a challenge at a craft group. Obviously i'm a huge zelda fan ;).

Do you remember these? In Ocarina of Time the soft soil spots(where these can be planted) only appear during Link’s child era. After seven years(Link’s adult phase), they will turn into platforms which will grant Link access to certain areas otherwise impossible to reach. They also make an appearance in Majora’s Mask.They really take me back...

This guy(below) is who you got them from. I kind'a liked him, except for the fact that he would increase the price every time you bought one.

This is how it started out, 4 mini yarn balls(lol). I then crocheted the pea-pod and sewed them in place.


It's currently for sale at my etsy shop(here). You can find them here! :D

Legend of Zelda Cow - Amigurumi

Custom Order Complete!! 

The first cow i made was as a project for Nerd Wars(ravelry team) a couple of months ago. Since then it's been one of my favorite amigurumis. Recently i got a custom order for one, and here she is! She'll be mailing out on Monday ;).


She's inspired by the Legend of Zelda game series(specially Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask). Would a step-by-step slide show be a plus?
