A blog about fun stuff!

Hi there! Thanks for reading my blog. This is a blog about my life. I will discuss visual art, music, fiber arts, crochet patterns, and anything else thats going on in my life at the time. I am an art education student at UTM, and I have a serious yarn addiction.

When I’m crocheting you’ll usually catch me curled up on the couch with a cold diet coke drowning in yarn. Most of my patterns are originals. I just grab a hook and some yarn and get going. I’ll post some of my patterns on this blog. For some of my creations I will draw up designs and plans. I especially do that for my cozies. For my cozies with felt embellishments, I use hand drawn stencils. I make a stencil from printer paper and laminate it with packing tape. Then each shape, spooky cats, mustaches, whatever I’m working on are hand cut from felt squares.

Sometimes I lose track of time and crochet for hours. The only thing that reminds me to stop is the aching in my wrists. I do “hand yoga” as I call it to make sure I stretch out. I try to do this every hour or so when I’m working.

I gather inspiration from everything. Everywhere I look I find beauty. I try to capture this beauty in my works. I love nature and being outside. Music also inspires me. My favorite bands to listen to when I’m creating are Hawthorne Heights (especially JT’s solo project), Bayside, and Patent Pending.

      Aww! I’m so glad to hear someone actually misses me. I ddnt really think people read these anymore lol. I haven’t really been up to much lately. I actually have a lot of things to blog about. Maybe I will make a new blog this week. I just started at the University of Tennessee this semester. I’m studying art education and I love it. Maybe I’ll do a blog about it sometime. Thanks for reading!
