Tired, and teaching.

I've been really tired lately. I'd wake up, shower and go about my day for an hour, then want to go to bed again shortly after. It sucks, and I hope it goes away soon.

But I've been a bit productive! On Wednesday, I spent a good bit of my after class time teaching a fellow student from my health class to knit and crochet! (Hi Sandra!) She quickly caught on crocheting, and as I had extra hooks, I gave her one, and a bit of yarn to practice. I can't wait until our next lesson. It's really great to show another person your craft. Such a happy feeling!

Yesterday afternoon, I decided to make my mom a little gift. She hasn't been feeling too well, so I wanted to brighten her day.

So I made her a red velvet cupcake amigurumi! Her favorite type of cake is red velvet, so I figured, why not give her one that can last a lot longer than a real one? :3

Sometime in the future, I'll be re-designing the blog layout. Might even draw up some cute headers or something. I've scribbled out ideas on scrap paper. I may share then soon.
I'm also planning a giveaway for the blog's 1st anniversary! Still not sure what to make the prize, but stay tuned! :3

Take care, and happy crafting!


  1. I know how it is to be tired a lot! If there isn't another reason, you should definitely go to the doctor and have them check for hypothyroidism. Though of course, that isn't the only cause - I get depressed, and get very tired then :(

  2. I agree with Alyssa, but I was going to say you should make sure you don't have mono. Despite its nickname it's highly contagious, and just being a student means it's a real possibility.

  3. I love the cupcakes, but can I just say how much I love the fact that you have taken the time to teach someone else!

  4. Thanks for the heads up about the knitting help website Carla :D You are one of my knitting/crafty inspirations - you make the coolest stuff! Hope to be posting you a letter back soon :)

  5. Love the cupcake :) Kudos for teaching your fellow student!
