First baby elephant head for Jena (Pattern can be found here:
Baby duck head for Tara (Pattern can be found here):
Head of the Yeti for Brad (Pattern by Roxycraft):
The Yeti didn't turn out exactly the way I pictured it to. I'm probably going to do this character again, but I'll try to alter the pattern a bit to make it look more the way I would like it to. I'm also thinking of creating a cow for my sister... we'll see what happens.
Also as you may have noticed if you follow me on twitter I have finished crocheting a garden scarf. I also have started making a bib. Hence, there will be more pictures on their way... Maybe even tomorrow!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Edited: 17 January 2009
create pieces to chihuahua amigurumi
Create parts of the wobbles I'm making for my new niece
Added 17 January 2009:
Pandas for Katie's Cousins
Create Felted Purse for myself
Baby Blanket for Taylor
That should keep me busy for a while... Hopefully for the rest of break... because I have been really really bored :(
Well enough chatter, you really came here to see the pictures... Today I'm sharing three more of my creations. These three creations are just heads... Yes they are finished, but they are only heads. This is because I wanted to create a little something for all of my cousins. I have six of them and I didn't get to making their little critters until the day before I was going to see them. Hence, I made six projects in a night! Ridiculous... but fun! Hence, all of them just got heads of creatures, which they were happy with.
First project is a stingray, pattern from These Loving Hands, as a request for my cousin Jordan:
Then I made a tiger, pattern from Ana Paula Rimoli's Etsy Shop, as a request for my cousin Noah:
Finally an elf, pattern from Roxycraft, for my cousin Adam (Kinda like Dobby):
If you noticed the eyes on the tiger and the elf... Check out Enami Eyes!
The final picture post will be tomorrow... however, I may then have some more projects to share, so again stay tuned ;)

So this is the second picture post... Yesterday I showed off what I made for my brother and sister-in-law. Today I chose to show pictures of what I made for my mom, dad, and sister. Enjoy the pictures! :)
For my mom, I made a table topper using a pattern I bought on Etsy. The pattern is by Amy Gaines and can be purchased here. I also used enami eyes for the santa part of the pattern. I like the way it turned out :):
For my dad, I made a CD of me singing :)... You will see the nice cover I made for it!
Finally, I created a Tigger head for my sister. She loves loves loves Tigger and so I started with a tiger pattern and changed it a LOT to make it look like Tigger.
Picture Post #3 is coming tomorrow :)

First my brother's Christmas gift was a picture frame that I painted. The family, duck, and fish were pre-made. The family was painted by me but was pre-cut, while the fish and duck were pre-cut and pre-painted.
The picture is kind of dark... but you can see what I sort of did. A sunset and water :)
My brother and his picture frame :)
Next is my sister-in-law's new purse. I crocheted this purse using a pattern from the book The Happy Hooker:
Christa is admiring the fine craftsmanship (she had bought my sister and I purses for Christmas... Great minds think a like ;)
Finally a bib I cross-stitched for my new niece or nephew. I created this bib from a kit you can buy at Hobby Lobby or Joanne's along with most other craft stores:
So that is picture post number 1, stick around for the rest of the week to see more picture posts!

The first pictures I have are of a monkey I made for a friend. This monkey has a little Packer Jersey on and the number twelve for Aaron Rodgers. This was created by changing a few things on an Ana Paula Rimoli pattern. This monkey pattern can be found in her publication: Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet:
The other picture below, is a picture of a pig I made for my Suitemate. The little pig pattern is also by Ana Paula Rimoli and can be purchased at http://anapaulaoli.etsy.com:
When I finally upload my pictures from my camera, you will be able to see completed pictures of the Polar Bears... along with the picture frame, cross-stitched bib, and purse. I cannot wait for you all to see them.
Here is my to do list by the end of the week (Hopefully you will all see pictures of these creations too):
We'll see what I get done ;)
EDIT: You will see that I finished my list, just in time too!

Then I'm in the process of finishing two different types of polar bears for Christmas. One is a ball and the other is the type the penguin is. Here are some pictures of the uncompleted little guys...
Hope you enjoy the pictures. I'm hoping that in a couple of weeks, I'll finally have time to at least finish the polar bears I started. :)

Oh and just a note... I only made Dot (which is the green platypus) The purple platypus is her boyfriend Pete. Pete is an amigurumi I actually bought from Pigglewiggins on Etsy. You should check out her store. She is a pretty awesome lady... Hope you enjoy and let me know what you think!

First I'll show you my collection of platypi. I am currently crocheting a girlfriend for the purple crocheted platypus. She is almost finished and just needs a few more finishing touches.
Then for some of my crafty things... I have the foam animals that my roommate and I put together and then I took an old record and put our names on it for a door dec...
We also added monkey madness by adding a bunch of monkey additions to our room. They were just too cute to turn down.
And finally here is a picture of our entire completed bathroom...
We actually have added more music decorations since this, but I'm hoping to add more pictures tomorrow and have an add as we go project... Hopefully, Dot the Polka-Dotted Platypus will be done by tomorrow too... But we will see because I have a lot of homework tomorrow!

Remnants of Amigurumi
Originally uploaded by bcritters
So, I'm not done with my girl elephant yet, but you can see in the picture all the pieces of various projects I have going on at the moment. The green stuffed thing is part of a platypus I'm making. The brown is a amigurumi based on the idea of roxycrafts little round animals. I'm making a platypus. The gold is a golden bunny from Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochet by Ana Paula Rimoli. Finally the dark pinky colored stuff is the girl elephant. I'm figuring I should be done with her today! YAY! Unfortunately, my camera is broken and I have no way of uploading my pictures, because I do not have a camera cord and I lost my memory card usb drive. So, for right now I'm going to be taking pictures using my Photobooth. That means not very good quality, but at least you will get the idea.
