The cold weather here is almost gone. Spring will come soon enough. In other words, the seasons of coziness are almost over. I'm looking forward to the longer days and then trips to the lake during the summertime. The kids I babysit got me sick again, unfortunately. I have been able to crochet a lot and also get in some art-making and writing sessions. I just adore this picture of my sweet cat, Grace, modeling a lap blanket I made. As always, if you enjoy my work and would like to support me, please check out my Etsy shop, GreenOwlCrochet. I also accept crochet commissions.

cozy season is almost over
Sunday, December 18, 2022
Happy holidays from my home to yours! I have been sick with rhinovirus for over four weeks now. Despite my illness, I have been working on several projects. In the past month or so, I have made a cactus mosaic, a painted stone, three wooden slice ornaments, a scratch-art picture, two crocheted ornaments, a painted wooden rainbow, a painted ceramic cat, and some doodled postcards. In addition, I am almost done crocheting my panel for a pro-choice yarn bomb that is being organized by Jen LaMastra and Gabrielle Peck. I hope everyone has a lovely holiday season! As always, if you'd like to support my work, please check out my Etsy shop, Green Owl Crochet.

Autumn Renaissance (poem)
so much to think about
while laying in the field
on a flannel blanket
covered by shriveled leaves
and giggling with my friends
remembering how this land
will soon turn brown
and lay sadly dormant
while we remain
very much still alive

in the splendor of the summertime
June and July have been fun! I have been able to crochet a lot and also work on some other crafty goodness. I found inspiration in this painted rock tutorial that I saw online on Saturday. On Sunday, I drew a geometric design on a rock and then painted in the colors using paint pens. I think the result is great! Yesterday, I finished crocheting a jellyfish stuffed toy for a friend of mine. If you would like to buy a crocheted jellyfish or another item from my shop, please visit my Etsy shop, GreenOwlCrochet. I also accept commissions. Thank you!

cute llama magnet
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!
