Valentines Earrings

Since I didn’t have a Valentines, I decided to give mine to my first love, my mom. :)

She has been asking me to make her earrings but I’ve been acting like I was ignoring her. And since she wasn’t interested in chocolates, I decided to hide 6 pairs of earrings in a box of chocolates. Lol I had to ask her to open the box or they would’ve just sat there. I wish I had taken a pic of her face bc she was so surprised and happy. :)

Crystal beads on interchangeable lever backs.
I saw these earrings at my local bead store and fell in love. They were longer with one more set of beads in a smaller size on each end but that would be too long for my mom so I kept it more our length.

Here are the other 4 pairs of earrings. All used Swarovski crystals and were quite a simple design but I love them and so do my mom! :)

A Horse for Baby Kayley

3 of my friends are having their first babies this year, the year of the horse. And I've been making like crazy but behind on posting, as always. :) 

So, here's the first horse I make this year and some booties for the first of the horse babies that my friends are popping out. :)

My first time meeting this sweet heart I had to bring tributes so I brought a horse personalized with her info and a cute pair of booties that fit perfectly! :) 

This adorable horse amigurumi pattern is FREE from All About Ami. Just click HERE for the free crochet pattern. The little booties are also a Free pattern by Louise Mac.

I hope to remember to post what I gave them for their baby showers soon. :) But you know this panda, it might be a while. hehe

Granny Stitch Sun Hat

Granny Stitch Sun Hat free pattern by My Merry Messy Life. A very cute hat but I used a size 4mm hook and it came out sized for a premie baby so I’ll have another go and probably with different colors. 

It won't go to waste or frogged through. I will donate it to a Neonatal ICU in my area. :)
