We finally had  (almost) a whole entire day with sunshine here in Portland. My friend Sarah and I spent most of the day at the dog park, with our cuties, Wartooth and Cupcake-Ramone.

Spencer and I went thrift shopping last Saturday, and I scored the cutest vintage mod dress, and a rad vintage globe. I'll be back with a better photo of the dress later.

I finished that baby hat I had started in my last blog update, of course it ended up being waaay too big. It actually fits my head. Yeah, cool. So I started over, and it looks to be right this time. It just looks like a half finished green beanie now, but I can't wait to get to the dinosaur part of the hat, the spikes, it's gonna look cute! I promise I'll post pictures before I ship it out.

I hope you all are enjoying sunshine and warm weather! What craft related projects are you currently working on?

If it's still raining.

Am I allowed to keep knitting? Spring has definitely not arrived in Portland. Two days of sunshine here and there doesn't count when there are endless days of rain. Yesterday we even had a hail storm. Lovely.

Sometimes I wonder, and worry that Spring, and Summer, will never happen. Then I remember last year. It is totally worth the wait. Meanwhile, I'll be knitting. Hey, it's mid-April, knitting hats seem totally appropriate, right?

I am currently working on a dinosaur inspired hat for Clark, Spencers nephew. I feel like I'm pretty good at knitting, but there is something about knitting a hat that is ever so difficult for some reason. Throw me a sweater pattern, and I'll have that thing finished in no time. Am I the only one struggling with hat patterns?
With that said, the hat is way too big at this point, so I'm probably gonna end up starting over, oh well.

I made a crochet baby blanket for my nephew awhile back, I posted some iphone pictures of it in my last post, but here are some actual camera photos.

I've also been busy making gifts for some pretty special ladies. I made a fabric, knitting needle/paintbrush roll for both my mom, and Spencers mom.

If you are interested in seeing what I've been painting lately, check out my other blog.
I hope Spring made it's way to wherever you are.

A New Leaf

This is for all of you who are still out there, waiting so patiently for me to (finally) update my blog, thank you <3 For those of you who sent me sweet emails, with kind words, and encouragement to update this thing, you are all so wonderful <3

I have been extremely busy lately, I moved yet again (yes, I know, it's ridiculous), I also moved to a new Tattoo Shop, and I am now at Scapegoat Tattoo Sundays-Tuesdays 12-8pm, come see me!

It feels like ages since I updated this blog, and with that said, I'm gonna try my best to update you all on what has been taking up all my time lately, by posting photos from the last months.

Thank you all for being so patient <3.

I started a new blog, just for my tattooing, and art, check it out! <3

Thanks again, I hope you all are enjoying Spring! Lots of love, S.
