Bid on Me

Every year we have a silent auction at work to raise money for the United Way. Every year I donate a couple monkeys. Every year I'm doing this the night before it's due. Every. Year.
Only this year they changed the date AFTER I submitted them. So now I'm, like, ahead of schedule. Here's a sneak peek:


So long, Kristi

One of my former supervisors left the company. She saw potential in me and gave me an opportunity that I'll treasure for my whole life. Thanks, KT! 
And for you, a monkey! (Which I told her was a "forever hug".)

The Sweater Project

A while back a co-worker asked if I'd make one of her daughter's sweaters (which she'd outgrown) into a cute creature. My friend Katie saw the post on my blog and asked if I'd do the same for her son, Logan. I'm always nervous making the first cut but if it's one thing I've learned it's that creativity can explode with greatness from mishaps. 
This sweater is from Chez Ami and I just have to put in a plug for their quality. As I was deconstructing the sweater I noticed how well-made it is.

I wanted the "L" to be special so I turned it into a cape! 

Judging by the look on Logan's face, he loves it. 

{P.S. How sweet is Logan?}
