Merry…Christmas?

Saw these and others like it floating around the internet being sold and what not. I don’t know if it’s the perfect gift this holiday season but it is certainly interesting.

The tiara is by far my favorite. I might actually sport that one.

And who could pass up a Darth Vader helmet sponsored by Guinness? Can you resist the sheet glory of it all?

My Etsy shop is Open!

I know I put the widget in my sidebar some time ago but shit got unexpectedly real with my health and I wasn’t able to give it the attention I wanted.

So! I’m still not squared away health wise, but my medical professionals say that I should try focusing some energy into a positive outlet like volunteering while we straighten me out. Well, I’m in no place to get crazy with Habitat for Humanity BUT there is something I can do though I don’t know how well it will go over.

I am a total knitting neurotic (well, more crochet now than knitting). And there’s an ugly stigma  associated with mental illness and I’ll be damned if I give into it and I’ll be double damned if I let my own doubt and insecurities stop me from turning this hot mess into something positive. So going forward, I think I can do better than just hooking for stress relief, I can hook and have it mean something. So I opened an Etsy shop, Hookland.

I’m not expecting a whole lot here but 30% of anything I sell will be donated to organizations like the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) that are designed to help people like me when they are at their worse. They provide referral sources to helpful services, train people to help in crisis/suicide situations, and secure meeting places for support groups.

This is personal for me. I’d like to think I can contribute in some small way and if you are at all interested and enchanted by any of the hats I have listed please know that it is helping make a difference.

*** I make hats BTW. Almost purely hats for children and babies. It’s what I like best but that doesn’t mean there won’t be other fancies up on the occasion.

Thanks guys and much love! 

Here Kitty Kitty!

There are cat caves and there are Cat Frikkin Caves!!! This is possibly one of the coolest felted kitty cozies I’ve ever seen! It’s like you transported your pet into a wonderland of dreams and joy and joyness!

It’s almost too good to give to my cats. I love them but they ruin EVERYTHING. My 3 year old is less destructive. And because they are smug little SOBs if I did buy it for them they wouldn’t even say thank you. They’d just rip another hole in my feet when they pounce out from behind the couch like the predators they think they are…again.

Mini Dress, Maximum Awesome!

Beautiful! And the girl ain’t bad either!

Lecrochetart on Etsy is rocking this mini dress and more on their shop. $510 seems totally reasonable considering yours would made to order in silk if you choose and in 30 days.

How does one accomplish this in 30 days?! I envision a selling of one’s soul or another x-men origin story in here somewhere.
