Between Mike and Jamie, we go through at least a container of protein powder in this house each week. I have collected so many! I painted some of them using Krylon Fusion paint (it works on plastic) and now they are on top of some cubbies I have, holding odds and ends.

Crochet Monkey

Here is a funny little monkey I made based on a design from Crochet World Magazine. I am also working on a bear, puppy and elephant!

He's about a foot tall.

Crochet Baby Beach Hat

Here is a little beach hat I made to give as a gift someday to someone's baby. There are 4 panels, blue, red, yellow and green. The pattern is in the current issue of Crochet Today magazine and is very quick to do. One of the stitches, that I've never actually seen before, is a half-triple crochet. Very easy to do and it was fun to learn something new!
