Crochet Unicorn finis!

Well Voila! The final product of the unicorn. I am really happy on how she turned out. I do hope that her new owner will love her.  She was a lot of fun to make and to see her come to life.  This project did do a number on my hands, but again every time I make one of these, it is a learning experience... rubber thimbles.. is all I'm saying!!!!!

Unicorn a la crochet

hey how ya doing?
So what do you think?

DNA for Christmas anyone??

I found this really interesting idea in which your sent a kit to retrieve a blood sample, and in turn you get a picture of your DNA.  Honestly I think this is really a neat idea.  Is it cheap, that would be a negative!
If I could I would get my daughter and myself done. It would be neat to compare our DNA.. since she is a part of me...

Check it out.. just for the fact this is pretty cool!

Saving Christmas Magic for just one more year

I received and email from a mom asking me to create a unicorn for her daughter. 
here is part of the email that she sent to me:

"All my girl wants for Christmas is a stuffy unicorn that Santa made, not one that you can buy. Santa makes his own toys and she said that he doesn't live in China, he is from the north pole, and that his toys have to be from there too.  If not then Santa must be lying.
I think this is her last year of believing...but i want her to stay little and full of magic for just one more Christmas."

Being a mom to a little person, and watching the magic that we as adults lost so long ago, it made me think, and realise that I to will go threw this, the day the magic disappears from Adele.  So I'm so happy that I can help make it last just one more year for this mom.  

So here is the work in progress:

I have to say what her daughter said about Santa makes his gifts, really hit home to me. It's true... we live in such a materialistic world and we place those ideas and values onto our children.  When really all they want is something to love and cherish. It doesn't matter how expensive it is.. but that it came from the heart.  It really is a learning lesson that we adults need to learn from.  I wish I  could see the look on this little persons face on Christmas day, and it warms my heart to know that this unicorn will be cherish and loved.

If your wondering what I wanted for Christmas, well this year it was simple.. he arrived a month early!

Dunnett Clan

I've known Doug for a long time, and when he finally asked me to take pictures of him and his brood, I couldn't wait!
Great boys and fun to work with!

Doug is owner of "4 More Tattoos" in Langford, and he has been my tattoo artist for over ten years. He is an amazing artist with incredible talent.

So for me is was awesome to finally do a role reversal, and lend my talent for him and his family... also my artistic skills don't hurt!!!

So HUGE THANK YOU to Doug, Luke and Mike!

Also I have to give my boyfriend Don a HUGE thank you as well, he was a big help being  second set of eyes for me, and letting me use him as a distraction to keep the boys from looking at me at times! Love you
