One week left until Christmas!

Only one more week left to Christmas! I've been busy trying to get ready, and I still have some shopping to do. I got a few handmade gifts done. Here's what I've done.

A hat and scarf set made with super bulky Hometown USA Lion Brand Yarn in Billings Chocolate. I used the galaxy stitch to make the scarf.

Here is another scarf I made with Red Heart acrylic yarn in violet and lavender. I used the  Mile a Minute Scarf pattern by Mary Jane Protus.

Here is a handmade, custom Yankee's Beanie requested by a friend.

I also made some jewelry. I used silver beads and  Beyond Beautiful crackle lime and metallic green beads.

Are you ready for Christmas?  I hope everyone has a happy, merry Christmas!

My brother, the Professional Wrestler

Remember the post where I showed you my funky boot covers?

There was actually a reason that I made them. I don't think I would just wear them casually. I wore them on Black Friday for a show. My brother is a professional wrestler and guess who his lovely manager is? That's right, I have many faces. My stage name is Lolita Loca and my brother is Lobo Loco. He wrestles for Classic Championship Wrestling (CCW). Here is a pic of the whole outfit:

So, what do you think? If you want to see more pictures and the videos from the main event, you can go to my brother's website, here.

Handmade Gift Exchange Gift

 I had a great time making a gift for my new friend Savannah! I forgot to take pictures of the scarf and earrings I made for her, but I did get a chance to get a picture of the hat I couldn't resist making for her baby girl.

Ok, now check out the cute new bag she made for me!
Isn't it lovely? Thank you Savannah! She even put some peppermint kisses inside the bag. Sweet! I love seeing other people's crafts and what people can do with their own hands and creativity. I think it makes a gift worth so much more.

I also want to thank Linda at Craftaholics Anonymous for hosting the Handmade Gift Exchange. You can go to her link party to see all the handmade gifts people have given and received.
