Well, my current blog layout is... conflicted at best, but I just had my first day at my ´new´ job and I had to post! For anyone who is not soooo updated on my life at the moment (because we haven´t talked in a while, or maybe you´re just one of the random lovely people who follow my blog) I HAVE QUIT MY DAY JOB!!!

Edit: I already left my job! After a lot of soul searching (so much as a semi nervous break down spurred on by the starling realization that you hate your job is) I realized that I needed to go after my dream of really starting my online business.

So I am :D.

Okay so most of what I did to day was just clean up and run errands. I have sort of been neglecting the cleanness factor of our house for let´s say 5 months, but still it felt good to do something besides sit behind a computer all day (unless that is playing games... cause you know I would heart that.) I went to Ikea with Mum and got some things for my ´studio´ yesterday, when it is in a somewhat presentable state I will make sure to take a picture, before I ruin ti again. Plus, at the end of today I got in some actual crocheting time so I am a happy camper!

Beholder Pattern

Here is the patterns for Paul, the Albino Beholder. You can of course, make him a normal ruddy beholder colour if you want (it is your amigurumi :D), but I simp[ly thought the world didn’t have enough happy-go-lucky cute things ;). Also, if you find the 10 eye-stalks too much you can also put less on. (I won’t even get into an intense nerd-debate with you about hoe a beholder actually does need all 10 eyestalks in order to be awesomely magical.)

Beholder

Materials= I colour of yarn, 1 safety eye, 10 black beads (see below), yarn needle, thread for sewing a mouth

Hook = ((2.5mm)) I am not putting a 'strict' hook size here, because you can basically do this pattern with any size hook & any size yarn. The larger the yarn/hook, the larger your beholder will be. However! This is very important make sure to guage your thread around the black beads that you buy for the eye stalks. My pattern calls for a CH6 around the eye beads and you should check this before you start. If y…

DIY Tutorial - Mini Doll Houses

Recently on my G+ page I have been posting a lot of pictures of these tiny 'doll houses' I have made. Since I have been so busy in my life etc. making these tiny creations has really been a big form of stress relief for me. You can get one done in an evening or two and the result is totally adorable and pleasing.


I first found out about miniature doll houses on the blog Open House Miniatures. They talk about the history and origin of these things, so if you are interested in that please give their blog a look. There is also a tutorial on the blog, but I found it rather confusing, because I wanted to make my own houses rather than the print out provided in the tutorial.


So... I have created this tutorial for you on how to make your own folding doll house! My only request is that when you have finished one please let me see a picture, I think they are so cool.
