Red, white and green

Hey there!

Hope y'all had a nice 1st Advent yesterday. Today I want to show you some of our christmas decorations.
Let's start with the lights outside. Hubby installed the icicles and bows on Saturday. - Thank you Hubby!

Now come on. Let's go inside, because

Our halloween lights and that pin brought me to one of todays idea. I have to admit that it don't look very nice in the daylight. But look at it at night.

Another illuminated item is this hurricane glass.

I had a similar one last year with other colors. You might have noticed that it's all about red, white and green this year.

You're certainly asking yourself if there is nothing new crocheted? Of course there is... Here's Gingy the new guy in town

And there are some other old buddies too that visited us for the fa-la-la-la-season again.

The Grinch

Santas little Helper
The Elf on the shelf

Thank you for stopping by.

The Good Dinosaur - Spot

Hi there,

hope you're all doing well.
A few weeks ago my little nephew had his 6th birthday. He got a big and cuddly plush Arlo.
Arlo is best known from the Disney movie "Arlo & Spot (The good Dinosaur)". But this Arlo misses his Spot. Therefore my nephew asked if I can crochet a Spot for his Arlo.
So I went to work, and I have to say, that my Spot figured out very well. 
This was the first time that I used the felt-technique for the hair of my amigurmi and I love how it looks like. As you may know how it is with little sisters, my sweet niece needed a Spot of her own so badly, that I crocheted one for her too.
Hope to see ya soon

Lego Storage Heads

Hi Y'all!

I hope you Halloween was very spooky ;)

This year my nephew and niece got lego for big kids for their birthdays. Until now they played with lego duplo and loved it. Now my brother and sister-in-law decided that it's time to change to the smaller pieces. To store the legos my mum and I decided that it would be funny to have a lego storage head for both kids.
Unfortunately I only found that boy's head for fair price.
The girl's head was twice as much. Therefore I bought 2 of the boy's heads and thought of bringing my silhouette to the game. So fresh to the work and plotting a few eyelashes, lips and a pink bow. Storage head for girls, here we go ...
Both kids liked their new lego AND the storage heads :)

Hope to see ya next week.
