Wow, how time can fly and life can get in the way. You’ll notice some changes around here via layout, and posts. I am still working on the kinks (importing old posts from the website) since I could no longer afford to pay for the web hosting.
In my absurdly long leave of absence, I have actually been dedicating my time to learning/perfecting a new craft for me. I have been crocheting. Before you think about how I sound like an old lady and how lame that all sounds, let me stell you that I have found some amazing patterns that are definitely not for Grandma. Well, unless your Grandma likes horror movies and creepy things. If you are crafty, and have not tried crocheting, I highly recommend it. All you need are hooks and yarn (both very cheap) the internet can teach you the rest. I learned all the stitches/basics via Youtube, and read online instructions and after a few failed attempts I got pretty good at this. Red Heart yarn is usually priced at about $2.99 per skein, and from just a few skeins of yarn you can make all sorts of things for your wedding, your home and more!
Here are some of my favorite patterns and crocheted dolls (amigurumi) that I have found online!

You can make these and use them as table decorations in any color yarn that you like. Personally, I’d choose a really soft white yarn so the web appears as it does in nature.
Frankenstein and Bride
Oh how I wish I would have been crocheting for my wedding. Chubbyninjacrafts is amazing. Check out their other creatures that include a Mummy, the Invisible Man and Bela Lugosi!

I’ll have to scan/update some pictures soon from a book that my Husband bought me called “Super Scary Crochet”. There are some fun creatures/dolls in there with names like Murderous Mental Mary how could you possibly go wrong?
And with that, I will sign off here and leave you with one last design that I aspire to create once I am skilled enough.
I know what you’re thinking, and the answer is ‘Yes’. That is, in fact, Regan and Father Merrin from The Exorcist, made out of yarn.
