Born in the Tundra of Minnesota, I have since become a bit of a Gypsy. Currently calling home base the hot sands of Arizona, I do still travel often. Whether the journey is a physical one, or one taken by reading a fantastic book it doesn't matter, the fun is always in the adventure. As always I am an eclectic person that likes a wide array of things and has many passions. Creating, advocating for animals and Mothering just to name a few.

I am doing three projects at once right now I think my crochet ADD has started in full. This blanket started out as an earthtone blanket for my Aunt. It still is of course but the more i put the colors together and watched as it went the more I noticed. I subconsciously seem to have created a woodland elf theme. I am really enjoying how it is coming out and the progress that it has taken. This pattern is also very fun to work. When I am finished I may make an attempt to write out my first pattern. I am not sure yet. So much to think about in 2015 so far so behold the Greenleaf blanket.


Here we have the first row, doesn’t look like much but they never do when they first start out.


Ah now we can start to see the pattern more. 5 rows of the first color and starting on that first row of the next.


It is fun watching the colors come together and I really like the third in this one.


Another green and you can really see what my first plan was. Descending shades of each color. Kind of like an Ombre but split up.


I was not sure how much I liked the 5th color at first but the more I did and the more it came together I decided it really wasn’t so bad.


and last but not least the lightest green in the bunch.

I really am loving this design one thing I can say though is it overall uses more yarn then any of the others I have done so far except perhaps for the aligned cobble.

Sometimes all things can be out doors even if they look indoors…. four seasons neatly put into a tent.


Sometimes a veil is not just a veil or a piece of cloth.


Sometimes shoes really do complete the outfit..


Sometimes a smile can make your heart melt.


Sometimes a cake is more then a cake.



Sometimes eyes know exactly where they are looking


Sometimes its the perfect hair day


and sometimes……..

For today’s Friday Artist share I am going to share some of the beautiful art that I found of Sherlock’s The Woman. The one Irene Adler, who stole Sherlock’s Heart, and this is for the record the BBC version.

One of these days I am going to sit down and fully clean my scanner so that I can get much better images, alas today is not that day and well the rest of this week is not looking very good either. Hello Holidays. In the meantime however I am playing catch up on sharing the different bits of ATC and other swap art that have gone out in my mail box in the last few months. So always in the interest of sharing mail art here, a gallery of what I have been uploading to Flickr today.

It is no secret that I am a Whovian so the Friday mail related post is going to be dedicated to some Doctor Who stamps. I am lucky enough to have some of the collection that the Royal Mail put out. A friend of mine sent me the collection of 9, 10 and 11 which I love.

Now it is not a big secret and most Geeks are celebrating the fact that the USPS is releasing Harry Potter stamps. So my geek brain asks, If we can have Potter stamps why can’t we have Doctor Who stamps too?! I would love nothing more then to spread the Who to all of my pen pals! Of course I could apply the stamps to envelopes (if I was not saving them myself thanks) for decorative purposes but I would like to see some useable ones. I am sure that won’t happen, Potter has had a bigger over all presence in the US but a girl can dream can’t she? I know I am not the only one who thinks this either..or maybe I am.

This was a super fun little swap to do and I can not wait til get mine back from my partner. But in the mean time here is the one that I made for my partner and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I do not 100% like the fairy I used but it was the only one I could find that felt close enough and did not cost a lot of funds. I could have just done a printed paper one, but that did not feel right for what I wanted to do. The jar overall however made me happy and it was nice to step out of the ATC realm I have made for myself as of late. Not that I dislike my ATC’s at all, because I do not but this was fun and nice.
