I absolutely love to paint!! These are my three favorite paintings!! The left one, Glistening Under the Stars was inspired by my awesome Sunday school teacher, Emilie! She had all the graduating girls over for a graduating class sleepover and when it was dark and late we went outside and their was a beautiful arrangement setup with lights hanging from the structure!! It was beautiful and it made it even more wonderful with chocolate chip cookies milk and my friends!!! Here's the real picture of that occasion!!
My second painting I named Hug a Pug!! Pugs are so cute cute and this oil painting described a pugs cute face extremely well!!
My third painting was a painting of my favorite animal, a giraffe!!! This baby giraffe's name is Fiona!! I named this painting Finoa Free because its a baby giraffe that's free in the wild!! With a beautiful sparkling sunset and wild flowers it tops the painting off!!

1.First measure your tablet .
2.Knit until you get two finger width on each side extra.
3.Now you will be adding on! Knit until you've done double the length of the tablet.
Now you will be making the top v that goes over and snaps into the button.
4.knit two rows of the same amount of stitches you started in the beginning.
5.Knit two together go on until you get to the last two and knit those together. Knit a row regular. And repeat until you get to9 the middle of the triangle knit as you were going untill you get to the nmiddle of the row. You will make the button hole. knit two together knit one knit two together! This is the button hole now repeat what you wre doing in the beginning of this step
6.Sow the triangle top onto one of the ends of the case.
7. Sow the ends of the tablet case together with a needle and yarn.
8.Sow the button onto the case.(make sure it lines up with your button hole)
Yay! You did it! If you don't want to make it! I sell them, just push on Boutique at the tab on the top of the page!
Love and knit on.
Now if you want to make this scarf yourself: I used chunky yarn & 13 size straight needles.
These directions are for making the scarf for toddlers
Pattern for scarf: 13 stitches and about 25 inches long; GARTER STITCH only. Start doing the button hole at about 21.5 inches in length and about 4.5 inches from the end. Cast off at the 6th garter stitch and only casting off 3 stitches. I used this very helpful video to cast off the button hole.
Pattern for bow: 10 1/2 straight needles and normal/med size yarn. Pattern: 16 stitches and about 6 1/2 inches long. Once done knitting, simply grab some yarn and wrap around the middle to form the bow. I secured the bow to the scarf with needle and thread. Then I simply used the bow as the “button” to hold the scarf. You simply grab the bow from the button hole and that’s it.

Aren't these so cute!! I made these yesterday! I'm going to give them to my friends for Valentine's Day!
Here's how to make them!!Easy to knit in just minutes and a great way to use up scraps from a larger project.
I used recycled cotton fabric yarn again which is one of my favorite materials to work with and which i have already used for many other projects.
Here we go...
ou need 5 needles for knitting in a round. Mine are size 6mm. The fabric yarn will vary in thickness since it's a recycled material and I found the 6mm fine to work with either thinner or thicker parts of the yarn. Some of my colors were really thin so I doubled the yarn.
Depending on the thickness of your yarn cast on between 5-7 stitches on each of the four needles. The fifth needle is your working needle.
Now knit about 6-8 rows going around and around and then cast off. You never turn your piece and knit the wrong side.
I like to place a knot between the first and the last stitch I casted off with the end of the yarn.
Then grab both ends and place two tight knots. Cut the ends or leave them for gypsy chic.
Now turn the bangle and you are done!
See how it nicely the bangle turns into a round shape just by itself?
If you like you can decorate your knit bracelet with little pieces of fabric scraps. Or some beads. Just have fun with it.
Hi this is the knit bow tie! I got everything from http://astitchofkate.blogspot.com/2011/12/knit-bow-bow-tie-tutorial_25.html
Thank you Kate!
Items Needed: I used a very cheap brand of acrylic yarn for mine. Along with the size needle suggested for it, so an 8 or 10.
Here is the pattern: You will start by casting on 20 stitches this is for the longer bow, the blue bow being made hree. (More for an adult bow.) Or do 13-15 cast on for the yellow bow, kids bow. Then you will cable stitch twenty-twenty five rows. (This depends on the yarn used, and how thick you want your bow to appear.) Then Cast Off.
Once you have cast off you should be left with a rectangle that looks like this...
So, for everyone trying this out, you should have it laying in front of you horizontally. Cut your strings shorter and weave them in...
Next pinch in the center your bows shape. I place a finger in the center as I press the sides in so I can get a cute little pleat in the center.
Then while trying to keep the shape, I grab a new piece of yarn that has NOT been cut from the skein and I wrap and tie a tight knot around the center on my bow. After doing this, I begin to wrap my yarn AROUND the center going out slightly wider to make the cute little center knot. I do this until I am satisfied with the width and shape of it. While wrapping be sure to NOT wrap the other end of the string (that is NOT attached to the skein) in the center. You will need it to tie off and knot the yarn on.
Then I bring BOTH strands that I started with together in the back of the bow and I knot these together tightly. Ta DA! We have a bow. If this is all you were desiring for then hot glue your alligator clip on it and your done. If your wanting to take it the step further and make it a bow tie....
Set aside your bow, DO NOT TRIM YOUR STRINGS AT THE BACK OF THE BOW (you will need these later to attach to the collar piece),and grab that yarn and needles again... This time you will need to look at whoever it is you are making this little tie for, and as you cast on your stitches, know that length of your cast, needs to be enough to go around their neck. I say 40-55 casts for little guys and 60+ for adults. This does NOT have to be spot on because this will be finished with a Velcro closure giving it some leeway. Once you have cast these on, garter stitch 5 rows, and cast off (for kids bow tie), or garter stitch 6, and then cast off. I find these are the best widths to fit under the collars of a dress shirt. Once you are finished it should look like this...
Now find the center of your neck piece here (fold it in half), take your bow and the long strings in the back of it and you will weave your string through a hole in the neck piece, near the center...it should look like this once you have done it...
Now tie it off, by knotting it, for more security, I suggest cutting an extra piece of yarn, and at the back of you bow feed the yarn under the center bow knot, and then weave it through the neck piece like you just did here and knot it off. Just makes the bow not so floppy, and hold tighter....its looking like a bow tie... now to finish it up. Cut two piece of Velcro, one the ridged, and one the soft side. You will want it about 2 or 3 inch's long. Then I just sewed them on using my machine. Be sure to place one piece of the velcro on the OUTSIDE of the neck piece and one on the inside, or it will not close smoothly.
You now have a bow tie!!! Check it out!!
Here it is!
