I'm hoping to make more beautiful items for you and myself

Amigurumi :)

I started crocheting when I was about 15 or 16. Possibly the same time when I started scrapbooking...but I preferred scrapbooking more until now. Working at Cox I couldn't really spread out ALL my necessities for scrapbooking to work on pages and so forth, so I started back on crochet.  I was able to sit at my desk with my yarn and just crochet to my heart's content.  I started doing flowers because I would be able to incorporate flowers to my scrapbook pages.  And now I'm working on a shrug and headwarmers for some friends. But then I found amigurumi. Japanese crocheted dolls :)

I found this pattern at jennyandteddy and since she had a picture by picture play, I figured why not try it.  And I finished it.  I need to work on the joining of the legs and body and assembling the pieces, but all in all, I am proud of my finished piece.  Not bad for a newbie amigurumi :)

Thank you to Kathy Orta @ Paper Phenomenon

I was having scrapbooking withdrawals. Then I saw Kathy's youtube video on an envelope mini album. What can I say? I fell in L-O-V-E! Now I know what to do with my paper stacks!
