A small business has started!

To help my recent addiction to crocheting amigurumi (Japanese for crocheted/knitted stuffed toy) I’ve accepted my first job for payment.  So a new small business has started Thompson Boutique Critters, TBC for short. A co-worker has paid me to crochet her a beaver, an octopus, a pig, a nurse and a polar bear for stocking stuffers.  The octopus, pig and beaver turned out good but I didn’t much like the nurse of polar bear. So for such a big order I made her a little ninja!
This summer one of Mom’s friends got me into crocheting cupcakes and thus got me into crocheting play food and toys for my younger niece and nephews.  Which has now become an obsession.  Wish me luck on this silly endeavor. =)

 

Yellowstone 2011

We went on the most wonderful 5 day trip to Yellowstone this last July. 

And that inspired me to create a critter like the many bison we saw up close and personal.
