It’s 6:30am. What are you doing?

I’ve been up all night making stuff for New People, and I’m still going!! I wonder how much I have left in me?

While crocheting some cherry dangly zipper pulls, I decided to make a crocheted strawberry ring. Marissa introduced me to the idea of making rings, and I’m kind of into it! They really are comfy! And washable!

I’m not sure I love the strawberry on a ring. It’s really 3D and sticks out kind of awkwardly, but it was a fun experiment.

Back to the grind!!

Hoping to pop out a few tissue box cozies in the next 24 hours!!!

  • when do you sleep?
    it’s moments like this taht make me nervous when i finally do make the transition to my store being full time and saying good bye to sleep.

    • well, I usually sleep! but if i pile up too many events/projects with deadlines…that’s when sleep goes out the door.

    Yep, definately cute!

    Loving the strawberry ring. Nothing wrong with it being a bit 3D. He’d probably make a cute brooch too (hint :D)

    Wow its super cute to be true πŸ™‚ I think i just found the ring i want to be proposed with lol πŸ˜›
    On a side note, i thought you had your hair cut cause on the second pic, its quite dark and i couldnt distinguish your pig tails and i must say that it would really look good on you that kinda haircut lol

    • I always try to hold off on hair cuts as much as possible to save money!! πŸ˜›

    Once again u r an inspiration! Love the ring! Good luck w the New People event-sounds amazing. Wish I wasn’t all the way on the east coast. I’m gonna ask a question – feel free to ignore! How long did u craft before u could do it full time? Is it a struggle to live off ur crafts? This is the crossroads I’m at and I just can’t see how I can afford to quit! But if I don’t I’ll never get this stuff off the ground. Would luv any advice or just to know how u did it! Keep up the awesome work!

    • This is kind of a long discussion :P. I think it also depends on what your product is. With very labor intensive work like mine, making a living is kind of hard. Time is not my friend! Even while I’m focusing on it full time right now, I’m struggling, because I’m also doing a lot of “free” work, or “investment” work, to build the company, so I end up doing lots of side projects that make no money at all. You have to give yourself a goal, and consequences for that goal. I got myself a manager and a licensing agent, and I told myself I’d give us a year to get some kind of production deal, or else I’m back to a full-time job, because I have too many bills to pay!

      You need to be prepared to live off a cushion, I think, unless you can finagle a way to build your business and keep your full time job!

      I kept at my day job for three years after I started selling Twinkie Chan stuff. For some of that time, I did half and half, which was really the worst thing ever because neither thing was getting done correctly!

    I think that ring is totally cute! But I love fruit with eyes! LOL!

    A crochet flower one would be awesome too!

    • I have seen beautiful crochet flower rings, but I think I gotta stick to my foodie tendencies….. fried eggs!! πŸ˜›

  • Hallo from Germany,
    i’d like to leave a big compliment for all the cute things that you make.

    I love all of them, at first your beautiful scarfes.

    Best wishes and a lot of good ideas for your future.


    • Thank you so much for the lovely note, Bettina!

  • Pam


    what a wonderful ring.
    I have a hug plaid flower one that stick out like a sore thumb as well.
    ohh I yearn to learn how to crochet but I’m a lefty so we’ll see.

    • good luck with the lefty crochet!!!

  • chinamommy


    i’m also a fan of the ring idea! My tip for not working: marry an older (rich-duh!) man with 1 foot in the grave & the other on a banana peel!

    • HAHA thats weird, I was totally watching the Life and Death of Anna N on TV.
