Framed Earring Display

I have so many dangly earrings—I much prefer them to studs.  However, I ran out of room in my little earring box.  So I went hunting for ideas and found this.

I changed it a bit so that my wires had some slack to them, the earrings have a tendency to slide, but I like the look of it better.  Also, as a side note, I have a few more fish earrings than shown above.  I love my fish.

Mustache Pillow

I'm only going to post one more of the mustache items that I ended up making for Kait.  But it was the best thing ever, so. Yeah.  Mustache pillow!

It was exceptionally easy to make; I just drew up the pattern, cut it out of fleece, and sewed it together.  It's pretty much as simple as it gets.  It also looks fantastic.

Fingerstache Knits

So, for my friend Kait's birthday it was decided that mustache shenanigans were to be had.  One of my contributions was the knitted fingerstache!

Of course we have the classic handlebar mustache.  Probably the toughest part of this project is the color changes   It's not even worked in the round, and is a really simple/short project.  IT was worked on my size 3 needles.

There is also the Hitler-stache.  I had to.  (I so need a haircut)

Careful Hands Painting

I'm so bad at this whole remembering to update this blog thing.  It's not that I haven't been making art, it's just that I haven't been posting it.

My friend Rachel has a large wall covered in paintings at her house, but there are some spots with empty canvases.  So she asked me to paint on one of them.  Then... this... happened... it wasn't planned and I started off with blue, but somehow everything changed and I rather like it!
