Brand new 'buds


Thursday, September 27 by

I've got some brand new 'buds! Well, earbuds that is... my old Apple freebies have been worn to pieces by my overuse and torn to pieces thanks to my puppy dog, Rosie. When I saw this tutorial on Crochet Clouds I thought I most certainly could give it a go. I have plenty of embroidery floss hanging around -- in my favorite colors too!

So here's my take on Gina's tutorial you can find here.

What do you think? I didn’t change much up from the original, but I would say you probably don't need four full skeins of embroidery floss. I barely used two skeins of 2.75 meters each. I really like the finished product, which hopefully won't tangle as badly as the original. Practical and pretty, what a deal :)

New Season, New Plan


Wednesday, September 26 by

Summer is over, fall is upon us and school has started up again. All the turnovers and new beginnings have given me an opportunity to renew this blog. New look, new purpose.

This blog will be home to all my origami shenanigans and the occasional DIY project. I've got some big plans for the future including flower week/month, the Twelve days of Christmas and a Nativity scene of folded paper alone! Hopefully, in the not-too-distant future, I'll be able to get a successful origami jewelry store going on Etsy.

So here's to a great fall season and a productive school year!
