Slayed

 Hi loves,


Man oh man how long has it been????? A while... I know. 

Well you see 2018, was the last time I made dolls for Things Jamaica πŸ‡―πŸ‡², they haven't reached out to me and neither have I.

2019 came and gone, then there was that year we all wish never came.  2021 came with a glimmer of hope and I thought... Wait!!!  I should make contact as I'm sure a few items were outstanding for me still.

The question was asked are you still in operation? My answer was yes. They placed an order, their biggest one yet.  I was really happy about this as I haven't been in the creative mood for a while and this got the juices flowing.

I gave an estimate of a month for the completion. The first week sees me moving at lightning ⚡ speed (you would have thought I was related to Usain Bolt, 🀣🀣🀣). Then comes motherhood, school work, housework, and my 9-5 among other things and my month deadline was fast approaching and I was nowhere near completion 😭😭😭😭...

I would be lying if I say I wasn't worried... Thankfully it wasn't a hard and fast deadline so a week or so over the month they were all finished.

Packaged and ready to be delivered.  I was pressed for time,  as I was working late into the night with work the next morning, I forgot to take the finished product picture of the keychains.

So loves without further ado here are my beauties in all their glory😁😁😁😁.

Almost done

90% finished

We're coming on quite nicely, aren't we?

Squeak!  squeak!


The last doll to be made and I'm honestly in love with the outcome... The way the beret sits on the side of the head... The braids to the side... This girl slayed.

Looking at the picture, justice isn't being served.  Oh, how I wish you all could see them in person.

Bye until next time.

Ripples and Waves

 Hi Loves, 


I was allowed to design something using Ice Yarns Softly Baby.  I had no clue what type of yarn it was, how it felt, was it easy or hard to work with.  Nothing, I knew absolutely nothing about this yarn, so when my package arrived and I ripped it open, I was in utter awe.  The yarn felt so soft. My girls even agreed.

They started placing orders as to what they both wanted me to make from the yarn.  I had to remind them of the task at hand, lol.

I decided to design a baby blanket, one that a beginner could do as well.  I first went to stitchfiddle.com to ensure what was in my head looked good on paper.    With that aspect completed and looking as I thought it would.  I wrote the steps down (as it did not transfer to the written pattern automatically with the basic option) and then I gather my supplies.

Pattern....✔

Though simplistic it may seem, if I didn't have the above tool to show what the finished product would look like.  Man, I would have had a foggy 🐸🐸🐸🐸 farm before the item even get midway.  

I worked on my blanket, took pictures, and upload my design to Ice yarn.  What's next? 🀷‍♀️ ....................... I don't know.

So I folded my blanket, and store it away.  Fast ward a few months I heard friends of mine were having their first child... I decided to gift the blanket along with a hat as my baby gift.  

Was wondering if they didn't want the gift as they were taking a mighty long time to retrieve it... But was overjoyed when the dad finally picked it up, and the mom messages me squealing about how she loved them.  I was beaming with pride😁😁😁😁

These are moments to live for as a creator/designer ( in the making) 🀭🀭🀭🀭..giggles!!!

You can make your very own Slanted ridges.  Go ahead try it and give me your feedback.
