Crocheted Bun

Every once in a while I step away from my paper projects and do a bit of something else. This time it was crochet. As I was wandering the web I came across this adorable Amigurumi bunny created by Tejiendo Peru. (You can search Conejo at www.tejiendoperu.com to find the pattern.) The entire instructions, including videos, are all in Spanish. I don't understand Spanish, except to count to twenty, yes, no, here, and a few other random words. So I had to guess on most of it. All-in-all, I think it came out pretty good, even though it's a bit bigger than the original, due to the fact that I used the yarn and hook I had on hand, which were not identical to what she used. Also I used some multi-color yarn for the ears and feet instead of three individual colored yarns....again, just used what I had on hand.

Anyway, I sent my sister some pics of the progress and her 7 year old son saw him. She told me he was quite concerned that the bunny needed to go to a good home. So I told her to tell him that if he does super well in school that maybe Baby Bun-Bun (he has already named the bunny) could come live with him. (Yes, I'm still angling for the position of best Auntie ever! 😇)

Here are some during-the-progress pics that I took. He was a bit Alien before he got his ears and feet...

Oh! And you HAVE to check out his cute tail/cola ...
Hehehe! Doesn't it just make you giggle?

That's it! Easy peasy squishy cuteness!
Have a terrific day! Thanks for stopping by.

Beachy / Islandy Vacation Mini Album

Another mini album to share today. This one showcases some beautiful beachy papers. Would be great for someone that lives near a beach, or someone who is going or has been on an island getaway. 
The design is based on a My Sisters Scrapper envelope mini album tutorial I recently saw. Instead of using envelopes I used kraft cardstock. The album is 8"x6", includes fifteen 4 1/2"X6" pullouts, five 7"x5 1/2" pullouts, plus several more bifold pullouts and various sized tags.
Lots of photos to follow....

Sorry, Blogger app decided this pic needed to be turned on end. I can't seem to override it.
Once again Blogger app has taken control. So sorry.

That's it for today. Thanks again for visiting. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Masculine /Dark colored Album

I have a mini album to share today. The colors are darker and a bit grungy. So it would be great for pictures of your favorite guy. The design is a resized version of the All Occasion Mini Album and Hidden Hinge binding from Paper Phenomenon. The finished album size is 7 1/2"x6 1/4". The pages are 6"x7". Some have flaps that flip out to the side, all have at least one pocket. It includes four 5"x6" pullouts, two 5 1/4"x7" pullouts,  and several other various sized pullouts and bifold pullouts in the pockets. With a magnetic closure. (I like adding those to help keep the tags From falling out of the album.)
Lots of pictures to follow....
Sorry ...Blogger turned the photo on end. Can't seem to adjust it.
Sorry. Blogger taking control again.

That's it! It's a really nice size album with plenty of spaces to add pictures, notes, mementoes, etc.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit! Hope you have a terrific day.
