Okay,I really should finish these other projects I have before starting a new one. Like my WTFery doll, which will probably only be one of... I was thinking it would be cute for my New Years ones, but... I don't like how it looks right now I might not get them done in time for Chinese New Year. Which is a bummer. I really wanted to.
And damn it... Why is BBC America Editing the episodes! They cut out all the funny scenes in the last two episodes before switching to Eleventh Doctor eps. Oh well, not like I don't have them already. I'll end up watching them later.
Now I'm done rambling going back to blonks so I zone out on the TV.

Right now that comes in the form of Supernatural (Monsters every week so WIN!) and Sanctuary. When the next season of Dr. Who comes on I'll probably be watching it if BBC actually behaves on or cable network. For some reason I can't really get into other shows. Occasionally I'll watch CSI and NCIS, but I'm not as much of a fan as I used to be. I know Kate so sorry!
Well back to work, that way I can hurry get the gifts done hopefully in time to send them out with the shop orders. Yes this means that Dad might actually get the blanket I started making for him this time last year. I have it mostly done, just have to figure out how I'm linking the panels together. Might go for a leaf motif…
Reminds me I should also work on the gloves I want for the faire made. Might just end up making them bracers instead, I'll have to find the right boots too. Looks like I may be making a trip to the mall. Maybe I'll be lucky to find the right ones because I need another pair of good soft leather boots. My black ones, which would have been perfect for a costume, fell apart on me after five years of constant wear, and the other pair I have… I'm not killing myself to walk around in three inch heels thanks.

Ended up making this shop for two reasons, one, I wanted to have a shop where I'm not sharing the workload with the housemate, which at this rate is 98% me 2% her; and two, Dude! The Blonks are cool enough to deserve their own shop right? Everyone agrees on that right? Awesome!
Okay this is proof I have to start sleeping nights and not stay up watching British Science Fiction shows back to back late night. I tend to get a little hyper. Though I have a friend out in California who wants me to make her a Master Blonk, should have asked which version of him. I'll probably end up making a Ghostie one, white hair black hoodie… Means I'd have to make a Doctor too… Yeah, that whole idea came about at about 3 am Eastern Standard time really. There's also an idea floating around to make StarGate Blonks and Resident Evil ones. Zombeh blonks… that's actually a scary thought, really scary thought (Yeah there's an evil look on my face now). I'll have to wait on them until much later. After all winter's all about the warm fuzzies right?
This winter's Trio is going to be a candle, a Yule log, and looks like by random pole done again late night with friends, Holly or Mistletoe! I'll have pictures up as soon as I get the first trio done, until then, I think I'm going to go grab crackers cheese and some lunch meat, pop in a movie and try to get less hyper.

Yeah, that's what I'm calling the little creatures that I make with Amigurumi. The set I'm working on now are for the Etsy shop. I just hope that the partner in the shop starts to do a little more for it than what she has so far, because 95% of the shop's been done by me so far. She made extra ears and tails to attach to the Blonks, but really, she should stick with jewelry for it, she can make that with better precision than trying to learn how to make the Ami's like I do.
I think that's my main problem lately, she seems to gravitate to things I find I enjoy and tries to take them over. Then when she can't get them to look 'right' she gets frustrated and says she's a failure. After a while it gets on your nerves. Which is why I attempted to move all my stuff to my room to work, that worked OH so well, I ended up bringing half of it back down so I could work while zoning out the TV, I'm determined to get this shop open tomorrow though, mostly because I need to start saving some money for a trip to Michigan to meet my sister-in-law and niece next fall. If I can swing it I want to be able to drive there and back. Thinking if I drive I can stop on the way and get my whole Zen going again, since lately I've been far to Warrioristic. Yeah I know it's not really a word, but it should be.
Let's see, guess I'm going to go crochet my little fingers to the bones, the headless Horseblonk here will be my final statement. After all, he's determined to get a new proper head with a muzzle!

I know I haven't used this account as much as I wanted to lately. Been working on a few things; EDL and now my Amigurumi and Jewelry site, which also has a blog on it, as well as plotting out my writing project for November. I think I may actually start that writing project early and totally shine off doing NaNoWriMo this year. I know I can hit the word count in a month, though the story that I have brewing in my head's one that I want to get down without the time restraint. Besides, might be fun to write.
And the idea's a little better than the steam punk one that I was writing about last time. We'll see how it goes after all, I have so much going on at the moment I don't even know where to start. Other than the beginning, right now that's as far away from crochet hooks as I can get for a few hours. Totally blame it on the fact that the little demons I made aren't as cute as I thought they would be so I don't want to even attempt Jack o lanterns at the moment. Ugh, I should go get my drink and plug in the laptop. Sitting out on the porch for a bit, just because it's one of those days where it's a little cool, but comfortable. The day made for apple cider, and a nice happy little story.
Guess it looks like I'm writing for a bit. I should see about getting back into a few writing groups. I haven't been in any for a while, mostly because the writer's block lately. One good thing about the Amigurumi I'm making. The monkeys I've made have started to take on a life of their own and have been forcing me to create little stories for them. One of these days I'll end up typing them all up and posting them. Probably in the little description of them on the new site, just so that readers will see who I'm talking about.
Until next time (Which won't be forever I promise!)

I'm also working on my 'totem' stackers (Working title for them) I have twelve lists of twelve animals to try to make, think building blocks for more 'grown up' kids. Though if they work well with the amigurumi, I might make little kid ones too out of fleece. Yes these will be sold in the shop once me and the house mate actually get things done for that. Right now we're still playing with patterns and beads to figure out just what we want to sell.
I'll try to get some more pictures up soon. It's too icky outside right now for them, and I don't want to move things around to take them inside.

Anyway! Guess what? Jewelry, and Pixels.... whoah this will be a messed up blog post.
First up. Some jewelry I'm making for a shop my housemate and I are making on etsy. I showed you tribal the other day...
Pyrochan's Final Fantasy challenge. 16 colors, including the transparency and all pixelled. That's the first time I really paid attention to the light source. I personally like how he came out.

And well I was bored, and since the housemate and I are planning on opening an etsy shop we've been working hard... or hardly working? at making jewelry.
This piece I call Tribal
