I am so happy with my new creation, my original pattern and designs. I wish I have jotted down pattern but I was just playing with it and came up with these designs. Sold 3 pair so far for $35 a pair and hoping to sell more!
It’s OPEN ENROLLMENT time once again where it’s time to check our insurances, make an update or switch to a better one. A year ago, we switched to a different insurance company due to change of employer. We switched to something cheaper but better insurance. So far, we are happy about it and there’s nothing we would change so far. I’ve heard so many insurances like we have that are also affordable and has good offer for a family like us. One of them is don allred insurance. I really don’t know about other insurance coz like what I said, we are happy with ours but I am sure adding it to my list just in case we encounter a problem.
Why did I not started making stuff before things get crazy? Can you imagine me now making stuff as Christmas presents, now that it’s the busiest season of the year for me? November is daughters birthday, then christmas then son’s birthday on January! I am cramming and my head is spinning like crazy. I hope I don’t need any prescription ped meds. No Please. Not now! I need to finish lots of stuff not to mention some request for a friend’s birthday. I know I can do it, I just can’t believe I didn’t start early. Well, goodluck to me!
One more month before winter. I thought I still have time to prepare for it. My kids’ new winter jacket I ordered online is still on its way. I just ordered them last week thinking winter will start on December 21st anyway. I am also planning to make lots of beanies to sell but I guess I’m already late. Coz guess what, it snowed today in Arkansas!
It’s so cold outside and it feels like winter started early! I am suppose to go run today for my daily exercise but I don’t think my body can tolerate the cold weather. I know I can if I just gear up correctly but the problem is my running shoes are not for winter. The cold will surely kill my toes! I think I need to buy a new one if I plan to continue running this winter. I’ll probably buy myself a brand new pair from Zalora. They have a quite a nice selection of running shoes for women there.”
There are so many things needed to be done, I am not ready for winter yet. I hope it won’t snow that much this year. Don’t get me wrong, snow is fun but it’s also killing me.

So I saw these new trending DIY shirt cuttings in facebook and pinterest. I also saw some of my gym mates wearing it so I decided to create one myself. I looked some shirts in my closet but most of them we’re my favorites, coz you know I am a t-shirt person but ofcourse when it comes to working out in the gym, t-shirt is my least favorite to wear. First of all it’s not comfortable and it’s going to be hot once you’re body is all worked out. Luckily I got this free shirt from one of the fair downtown last week. It’s black and the design is awesome too! So here’s what I’ve come up with ….
From Tshirt to racerback top!
Here’s the simple steps…
I hope you liked it guys like I do. It’s very easy and very comfortable to wear while doing Zumba! Try it and share your ideas with me!
My kids are so crazy about MINECRAFT. They saw this creeper stuff toy in Barnes and Nobles and asking their Dad if they can buy it unfortunately, the Dad didn’t approved but bought books about minecraft instead. So, I figured it’s just bunch of squares so I tried making one and below are some photos of the finished product.
My kids loved it very much, I asked them to just take turn and share but it didn’t work for so now I am working with another one but instead of green, my daughter liked it to be PINK. I am actually excited and can’t wait to see the finished product. Will post the picture soon!

Atlast after long months, I finally started crocheting again. I was busy with our garden these past few months so I am not in the mood for crochet. Recently, I have to stop gardening, not because I’m done, but because I don’t have enough resources anymore. (hahaha). So no other thing to do but to go back to crocheting for the meantime and here’s what I made so far….
Mickey Mouse Hat with ear Flap
A customer ordered this for a 2 year old boy but his size is like my 7 year old boy. And that explains why this hat fits on me.
Here’s another oner project I finished after the mickeymouse hat. Black and yellow bag inspired from the one I saw in one of the crocheting group I am in. I always wanted to do some fashionable bag like this so I am happy I finally made one! It’s supposed to be mine but the daughter said she like it so now I think I have to make another one.
It’s fun to crochet, but it’s kind of addictive coz once I get started, I won’t stop until I get bored. So now, I am working on another project that I haven’t done before. I am excited to show it to you guys but I won’t tell you yet what is it (just incase I fail).
Just incase I forgot how to get hat measurement, I am reposting this chart i got from google….

Head circumference 22 : 3.14 = 7.00 inches. Now you know your circle needs to be 7 inches. To get the correct height (from top of crown to bottom of the ear) you divide your circumference by 10 and multiply this number times 4.
Head circumference 22 : 10 = 2.2 x 4 = 8.8. So the hat height should be 8.8 inches. Hats are generally made about an inch smaller in circumference than the circumference of the head. This keeps the hat fitting snug and to keeps it from falling off. Most patterns generally have about an inch stretch to them.
