Hippos, Aliens and Nails!

Hello! I hope everybody is having a fabulous weekend! This is always the busiest one for us around here because this is crunch-time to get goodies in the mail before Christmas.  I'm fairly positive we're not the only ones in this boat!! :D  Just remember...relax and breathe every once in a while in there! :)

This cute little hippo is a toy I just finished this morning and he is newly listed in my Etsy shop if anyone is interested! I can also make him in other colors as a custom order...but beware it would be after the holidays when things are back to normal around here. :)  Feel free to send an email for info!

I love this thing.  The pattern is from a new book I bought from Amazon called "Crocheted Softies".  I did modify just the slightest bit to suit my needs, but not enough to say it's my pattern or anything...still very much the author's.  And he already has an established home (currently under the tree, but I'm sure he'll be in a pile in someone's bedroom soon after the holidays). 

When I get extra time, I would really love to branch off of the basic idea on him and make more aliens all different looks!

And some Christmas nail art I did for a friend.  All of the nails are painted with a base clear coat, then with a white polish.  Alternating nails have a red/green glitter coating and the others have very simple snowman faces dotted on (you can use a toothpick!).

Very simple and great for this week!

I will have much more to share once the holidays are over...right now it's hard not to, but I don't want to spoil any surprises for anyone who might peek here!! :D  Have a great weekend, all!

New Etsy Listings

Good evening to all!!  Just dropping in a quick note to say that I've listed several new items to my Etsy shop at over the last few days.  Trying to get a selection up in time for holiday gift buying, so if you're looking for shopping ideas- head on over there and take a peek!  No two things are exactly the same and you are bound to find something that any age range can enjoy.  :)  Also, always feel free to send me an email if you'd like to discuss a custom order or idea!  

Have a great rest of the weekend!! :)
