Fergy's Custom Paint

My friend Deb is an incredible airbrush artist. Her new website is now up and running, and I thought I would share it all with you....

Fergy's Custom Paint

The incredible artwork she has done on motorcycles, and fixing bikes that have had a few bumps and bruises, to her incredible artwork on helmets!

She is also the creator of the Kill Bill Bike -

On a personal note : this woman is truly amazing, kind and generous. I am happy to be apart of her life, as well as have her in mine and Adele's life.

Adele and I



I love this picture that I took of her and I on the trampoline this weekend.
We had such a great time.. she was exhausted when we left.

Diva and Adele



Not to sure what these two were up to at the time this was taken.. but still pretty darn cute!

Time to myself

I have been on a constant none stop journey, and yesterday I decided that I needed some alone me time. After work, hopped on the bike and went for a nice ride down to Dallas Road, parked the bike and sat and watch the world go by. Listen to the ocean and enjoyed the sun.

Crashing waves - lots of white caps on the ocean, would not want to be a fishing boat out there!

On a side note : it's always fun to watch people who are walking up to me and the bike, especially the guys. They looked stunned at first and look around to see where the "guy" is, until they realise that there is NO GUY. Makes me giggle.

Looking back

I found Adele's baby book, in the book was her ultra sound pictures and an imprint of her foot when she was born. I had fun sharing with her how tiny she was, and what she looked like inside my belly, and we measured her foot beside her imprint. Twice the size now.

She enjoyed looking at the pictures of her the day she was born.. and to see her face light up in realizing that that was her!

Amazing

more hats


So here are a few more hats that I have been working on for the hospital. I decided to give the "Knifty Knitter" a try and see what can come out of it. I was very impressed at how easy it was, and how fast I could make hats with it. The best part of this product is that I was able to make some of the these hats with the help of Adele. I have only made hats so far, but as I am learning there are so much more you can do with this product. Second of all I bought Clovers PomPom Makers, again what an easy to use contraption, Adele loves to make pompoms, that's how easy it is, and fast fast fast. It comes in various sizes. For these little hats I was using the smallest pompom maker. Did I mention your pompoms come out looking like a pro!!!

If your in a hurry to make a hat for a gift, these knifty knitters is the way to go.
But that being said I still love my crochet hats, as I feel like I can personalize them way more! I have found some really interesting patterns these past couple of days, and I'm looking forward to seeing what I come up with. Will keep you all posted!

As summer is drawing to an end, I believe more crochet time is in the works.

Labels

As most of everyone knows I make crochet hats and creatures. But as we all know, they get dirty, and the questions is then HOW THE HELL DO I clean this.
I was looking online to find ideas on what to do, and I came across a neat way of doing it. Being that I'm a graphic designer by trade, uhmmmm hmmmm I could easily make them myself.. whoa what a concept!

So voila, labels that I will be adding to my creations that I donate to the hospital.
All I have to do is circle the the correct care of the item and VOILA... all covered!
