Scarves and Shawls and Cowls galore!

After seeing the amazing knitwear in a movie I saw this week,

I was inspired to create my own version.

Ok… I must admit that the original design from the movie is INCREDIBLE

and I will never be able to recreate it, but here’s what I was inspired to create…

I’ve done a few different ones at this point, and am still playing around with color and proportion,  but it is coming along.

With the recent influx of requests for these and my rugs, I’m at a 6 week waiting list right now, but will probably be moving to an 8 week soon.  Hopefully after a couple of all night work sessions, I can boost production and catch up soon.

Here are some other ones I made this week too.  I love the fun colors for the winter blues.

DIY Daddy’s Turtle Costume…

DSCN9203

My son has recently started enjoying a certain turtle ninja hero movie.  He LOVES to play dress up, so… of course, he asked for a costume.  (He has a million).  My wonderful husband decided to take this one on.  We had a few boxes laying around that needed some upcycling

He cut and taped it into place, and then we used paint markers to draw a design on it.  DSCN9196

He cut a few weapons out of cardboard too.  We have ONE HAPPY BOY at our house!

P.S.  The cute mask was a party favor from a friend’s birthday!  Thank you Brittany!
