New Camera!

I finally broke down and bought the Digital SLR I have always been wanting!  It is a Canon EOS Rebel T1i and it came with a EF-S 18-55mm zoom lens.  It is a 15.1 megapixel camera…’ 10.1 more than my little P&S! The technical quality of my future photos will be awesome, now its time to work on the artistic and photographic quality :)  Here is a quick pic.

This will be the last photo taken with my little P&S 5.0 Megapixel Olympus D-630

Apple Cozy for Momma

My Mom is learning a lot about sustainable living and I love to talk to her about all that stuff.  And I also believe that sustainable living goes hand and hand with maintaining a healthy body and mind.  So…I decided to make my Mom an Apple Cozy Crochet for her birthday this year!  That way she can always have a cute excuse to bring a healthy snack with here everywhere she goes!  I am going to make one for myself soon :P

The pattern was originally designed by Theresa Grant.  You can see more of her cozies in her Etsy shop here.  I use Ravelry and found her design and pattern on there as well.

Random Box Fun

Here is a random video of our cats playing in a box.

Little Bear

Since we were really busy working OT at work lately I hadn’t done a whole lot of crafting.  But we are finally back  on our normal sane schedule again and I ended up starting a few things up again.

One of my friends from work asked me if I could make a little crocheted teddy bear for his mother for her birthday coming up at the end of this month.  He found a picture of a crocheted bear he liked, but thought the body was too small, so asked me to combine the bear head with another crocheted bunny’s body.

The original patterns for the bear and the bunny were created by Ana Paula.  I didn’t follow the patterns exactly, and modified the number of rows in many of the pieces, but I thought it turned out pretty good regardless :)  I hope my friend’s mom likes it!!
