New Year Ramblings

We've been doing a lot of nothing around here lately. It's been very refreshing. In between doing nothing I have been knitting and working on a few very late Christmas gifts. Namely this one for my niece, Olivia.

I could see myself tossing everything aside for the world of miniatures! Is there anything more adorable than tiny versions of everyday objects? I think not. I have left the house unpainted so that she will have something to do when she gets it. With the new baby in the house, it's always good to have something to keep the 5 year old's hands busy. The house is from Michael's and is actually a cd holder. I believe it's the same one that Angry Chicken mentioned awhile back.

I did manage to get a huge shop update done yesterday, with lots more to come.

I've been meaning to get these photographed and blogged about for awhile now. Inspired by all the great pine cones out there lately, I came up with these little pendants. I love the way they turned out. I am particularly fond of the white one.

eta: I almost forgot to mention that I was interviewed by Christine of Flapper Girl Creations. The interview is here.
