A few weeks ago, I went to a bargain store called Five Below to hunt for some treasures. I bought a few gifts for my neighbor's child, since I know she loves to do arts and crafts. I also bought some things for myself. Among my haul was a ceramic llama magnet painting kit. The kit was only one dollar. Despite its low price, it provided me with much joy. I was having a restless time before bedtime one night. I decided to try painting the llama magnet, just for fun. Although it only took me a few minutes to paint the llama, I'm so glad I did! I also used a black permanent marker to add the eyes and mouth. I used gloss Mod Podge to seal the paint. Okay, readers, I love the way this llama magnet came out! If you are so inclined, please tell me what you last bought to make yourself happy. I'd love to hear about it in the comments below. If you would like to support me and my work, please consider ordering something from my Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. I also accept commissions. Thank you!

Hello, all! I have been having a rough time with my fatigue, pain, and sadness. In November and December, I was able to crochet a lot of tree ornaments. As I stated before, these tree ornaments are for an upcoming yarn bomb. Also, in the past few months, I have been able to make art, and write a bit of poetry and such. I am happy to share some of my work with you all. Please don't forget to check out my Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet. I also accept crochet commissions. I hope you all are having a lovely winter!

Hello, dear readers! I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy. I have been working on crocheting more tree ornaments. I crochet covers (aka, "cozies") for pre-made plastic bases I buy online. I am planning on hanging the ornaments somewhere in our yard at some point in December. Last year, I did a similar installation called Holiday Cheer 2020. In fact, I may incorporate the same tree ornaments I used last year, along with the new ones I am making. I have also been making some collages and writing a bunch of poetry. I will, of course, share some more poetry eventually. Ciao!

I hope this blog post finds you all doing well. I have been struggling with my pain and fatigue, as always. I injured my wrist last week and have not been able to crochet for a few days. What a bummer! On the plus side, I have been able to make a few collages and write a bit. I have been enjoying the cooler weather. I love to sleep with my window open. I hope you all are doing well!
