Remember those lil shrimps I crocheted about a month ago?

Now I get to tell you what they are for: Australian brand Eat Me Do’s Hardcore Prawn collection! It already looks so fun, and I am dying to see what Part 2 is!

Screen Shot 2015-11-25 at 6.08.20 PMI made all the shrimpies myself, so there is a very limited quantity available. Grab some goodies now before they’re gone! (I’m told they are already very nearly gone anyway!)

Screen Shot 2015-11-22 at 12.05.17 AMSo we went to Target to just pick up some laundry detergent, and we ended up finding ourselves inside this ugly Christmas sweater for two.

Target also has a blue colorway. I didn’t find the Target sweaters online to link you guys, so you’re just gonna have to go in the store and take some funny photos, too! I found a few links for you guys (here and here), but I’ve never bought from these stores and just Googled them. The one at Target was $30something dollars to give you an idea of the price range!

What We Did With Our Pumpkins…!

Screen Shot 2015-11-24 at 3.11.03 AM

For the last couple of years, Manda and I have always gone to the pumpkin patch together before Halloween. I don’t usually carve mine, and Manda didn’t carve hers this year either. We’re getting ready to decorate the house for Christmas, and I was like, “I was looking into what people do with their pumpkins so they don’t go to waste, but I don’t want to break them down and cut/roast/puree them or whatever.” I’m the only one in my house hold who consumes anything pumpkin-related, and I don’t even consume that much. Manda said she would call the San Francisco Zoo to see if we could donate our pumpkins to them. As it turns out, we could! Manda drove all of our pumpkins to the zoo. The zoo lady said that the little ones could go to the porcupines, and the big ones would become toys for the rhinos.

Here’s a quick snap of a fun custom order I just completed. She wanted crocheted cup cozies to store her corn dog pens in, so we met up downtown so she could give me her glasses!
