One year of Geek Inspired!

WOW, it has just been a year since I started on this blog adventure!
I'm looking forward to what this next year will bring!

I know I have been absent lately -- technical issues have prevented me from sharing my pictures!! Silly computers don't want to cooperate with me lately! I'm hoping to get that fixed soon!

Have a great weekend and go get a cupcake to celebrate with me!!

Sackboys are fun dates

One of my old coworkers asked me to make her nephew a sackboy for Christmas. I love how simple this pattern is and how cute it always turns out.

I'm going to try to convert this knitting pattern to a crocheted pattern myself. My friend Renee also suggested making the zipper functional and having a pouch that you could put money in! How cute would that be?  I'll let you know how that turns out!

 But watch out, he likes to steal your drinks!!!

Christmas Coffee!

One Artsy Momma made a tutorial awhile back for a coffee mug cozy and loved how cute it was.
When I was trying to think of the perfect gift for my mom, I knew this would be it! 

I think it turned out super cute!! And she got a new mug to go with it!

New Creations

I'm trying to get myself ready for my first craft fair adventure in February.  I'm going to join my friends Marci & Maja for First Thursday and I'm pretty excited and nervous at the same time!!!

I wanted to make some new things to add to my collection and see where they lead me.  

I got some Christmas money so I splurged on some lovely yarn from Stitch Nation and got some great colors! And with those colors combined, I crocheted this fun scarf

I made it length wise and I love how it turned out!!!

I also made this star garland.
I was inspired by Becky's Garland at Strumpet's Crumpets and had to make one of my own.
I thought even if it doesn't sell, it will look great hanging up!!!

Happy 2011!

I can't believe how quickly 2010 has come and gone and we are now at the start of a new year!
Normally I'm terrible at setting goals and coming up with resolutions. Partly its because I have a hard time with the normal resolutions like exercising regularly or I think to big and come up with very lofty big goals that are hard to measure...  

But when I was thinking about it, I did complete one goal last year. I wanted to learn to knit and crochet! And here I am!!!  

my first knitted "piece"
I have enjoyed crafting and making things for others.  It has become a great outlet for creativity, a way to bless other people with fun things and a way to meet awesome new people!

Something new that I'm adventuring into this year is the world of craft fairs! Thankfully I will be doing this with my awesome friends Marci & Maja.  We are starting easy and going to have a booth at 1st Thursday here in Austin. I'm not sure what will happen in this adventure, but I'm excited. In the very least, I'll get to spend some time with my friends!

Well, anyways, I hope you all are having a great start to 2011! I wish you all many blessings and hope its a great year for everyone!!!
