Wow! I can't believe it. I thought for sure the octupuss was going to win. I would like to thank Larissa from for her help with the creature. Without her kniting knowledge,pattern writing know how, special knit tips,and overall coaching the creature would not have made it into existence. She is the "knit goddess".

Duaghter's Mess

I loved the way my dughter's makeup box looked (she is in the first grade). I just had to take a photo of it.

Hi Everyone! I am very new to blogging so please bare with me. I went to school for fine art printmaking and children book illustration. I have a tendency to dabble in all different forms of art and crafts. My latest endeavor is spinning. I love using all the different art mediums to create art yarns. I live in Kodiak, Alaska. It is an island off the coast of Alaska.Here is a small sample of some of the yarn I am working on.
