New Years Eve = Last Picture Post... Or is it?

So today is New Years Eve. I actually have plans to go down to Appleton, WI (20 minute drive) to hand with some college friends. I'm looking forward to this and I'm also looking forward to showing you the other three projects I made for my cousins :)

First baby elephant head for Jena (Pattern can be found here:
Jena's Elephant Head
Jena's Elephant Head

Baby duck head for Tara (Pattern can be found here):
Tara's Duck Head

Head of the Yeti for Brad (Pattern by Roxycraft):
The Abominable Snowman

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!

Here is the Third Picture Post

Today I will probably finish that flower scarf so I came up with some stuff to keep me busy while I'm stuck in the house... You see I would work on amigurumis but I'm out of stuffing and I cannot get any when I'm stuck in the house... Hence here is a list of to do's:
Edited: 17 January 2009
Finish flower scarf
create pieces to chihuahua amigurumi (the parts I can do without stuffing)
Create a scarf for Katie... not sure where to start on this
Create parts of the wobbles I'm making for my new niece/nephew Taylor
Make the bibs, I just got a pattern for!
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:
Jordan's Stingray

Then I made a tiger, pattern from Ana Paula Rimoli's Etsy Shop, as a request for my cousin Noah:
Noah's Tiger Head

Finally an elf, pattern from Roxycraft, for my cousin Adam (Kinda like Dobby):
Adam's Elf

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 ;)

Picture Post #2

Today I would I realized that I don't have any projects that need to be finished. With Christmas come and gone and no more polyfill I decided to start making a flowered scarf. I'm using a pattern from the book The Happy Hooker. I made one already but I decided to give it another try, just for something to do. I'm using a light blue, light green, and light pink. I think it will look nice when it is finished.

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 :):
Table Topper for Mom
Christmas Decoration

For my dad, I made a CD of me singing :)... You will see the nice cover I made for it!
Brittany De Laruelle 2008 CD
Songs on 2008 CD

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 :)

The Start to the Pictures

I have been a busy busy bee this last week. As you may have seen, at the bottom of the monkey pictures post I added a list of projects I needed to get done. I successfully completed all of them and am happy with most of them. I had time to finally upload all of the pictures up to my computer and onto flickr last night. There are a LOT of pictures! Because of this I decided I would make a series of picture posts this week. This is partly to add to the suspense. I'm starting with three of my projects. These three projects were made for my brother, sister-in-law, and their new baby (who isn't born yet but should be any day now)... Enjoy the pictures and please leave comments on the pictures or on this post of what you think :)

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 :)

Next is my sister-in-law's new purse. I crocheted this purse using a pattern from the book The Happy Hooker:
Purse for Christa
Christa and her purse
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:
Cross Stitch Bib for Baby

So that is picture post number 1, stick around for the rest of the week to see more picture posts!

It's Christmas Eve

Today is Christmas Eve and I haven't finished my sister's gift... However I have finished my mom's gift and my dad's gift. I didn't have time to take pictures of my mom's gift before I wrapped it, but I will take some pictures tomorrow when she opens it and I'll post them later for you to see. I'm really proud of the final result. As for my dad's gift... He is getting a CD of me singing :) That is what he has truly wanted for a while...

Hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

A Few Pictures

I have a few pictures uploaded to my computer of some of my recent creations. However, there are still some projects I took pictures of, but have not uploaded onto my computer.

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:
Rodger's Monkey!!!
Justin and his new monkey

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
Christmas Present for Katie

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):
Christmas Table Topper - Mother
CD of me Singing - Father
Tiger that looks like Tigger - Sister
Stingray - Cousin Jordan
Tiger head - Cousin Noah
Elf Head- Cousin Adam
The Yeti Head- Cousin Brad
Duck Head - Cousin Jena
Elephant Head - Cousin Tara

We'll see what I get done ;)

EDIT: You will see that I finished my list, just in time too!
