::singing:: "This is Halloween, this is Halloween..."
Yes it is! I'm not really that big into Halloween but my office allowed us all to wear jeans so long as you were wearing some kind of costume. So I had to think kind of fast and yesterday I cranked out a crown. Easy.
Once that was done, I just needed to make it contextual. I mean, who just wears a crown? What am I supposed to be?! I brainstormed, went home, and thought it through. Then I remembered I had made Stephen West's "Lost & Found" ! It's kind of like a cape, kind of like a jacket, but could totally be "regal" in a way. Ok, ok, cape and crown. I'm on my way to something kinda kingly. Oh wait! I have a GIANT crochet hook, too! And so, 'King Crafter' was born!
TA DA! I know, nothing super wonderful, but it got me jeans on a Wednesday. So there. Also, that hook has a special name. It's Zed, as in the last letter of the alphabet. There's no such thing as a size 'Z' hook in crochet, at least not that I've ever seen, and this one was custom made. And the look went over well with the other office peeps who all loved the crown. That's all that matters!
Tonight, the door stays shut, there is no candy, just a pork roast and playing with my new router. Gonna be fun!! Have fun, be safe, and Happy Halloween!!
Not much is happening in the great Northeast. At least not yet. I heard a rumor of a "nor'easter" this weekend but no one could confirm if that was rain or snow. It's not quite November though so I'm totally hoping it's just rain. I guess we'll see!
Shop-wise, there will be some new listings coming up! I have a fall set that I'm tweaking although I might hold off until next year. I'm also working on a Christmas-y set. I think it will be cute on a desk or shelf.
Below is a little photoshoot I had yesterday with Little Luffy at my desk! SO CUTE!! That hat is completely removable and Luffy's hair is nicely laid out on his head. You can order yours here if you want and bring a little ONEPIECE to your life!

Here in New England, we're finally into FALL!!! Today is a perfect fall day so long as the sun hangs around. Right now it's tea and crochet time. Need to finish this hat before the Mr. and I go into town tonight to see CHVRCHES!! I am SO excited!
Honestly not much else going on. Probably going to play some video games today too just to fill in the time. Now I just need to find a place for dinner!
As luck would have it, Google+ is shutting down. Granted, that's 10 months away but a lot can happen in those months. I've decided that I'm going to center my online presence around this, my site and blog. Feel free to follow along!
And there's news! After a drought from changes, I've actually spent time updating this site! There's a new blog for my tea adventures "Leaving the Grounds" and a host of other updates. I even wrote down the hex colors this time so hopefully things are a little more consistent across the board.
As time goes on, I'm hoping to post much more regularly here rather than elsewhere. There's no social network like the one you build yourself and if I'm going to get anywhere it's going to be here!
