Happy Holidays!

Here is a taste of holiday goodness. :)

 My improv wrapping paper and ribbon. :)
 Left to right: momma wearing a circular scarf inspired by peoplewebs, bubba wearing a beanie in his school colors, other bubba in an Eric Cartman hat, and OTHER bubba wearing a ski mask. They all liked their gifts :)
 AWESOME tutorials I found on pinterest. They turned out super cute. These are for Fletchers Dad&stepmom, and Mom&stepdad. :)

 I saw a picture on pinterest that showed cardboard letters being wrapped in yarn. The rest is all me! It was completely recycled (except I guess the yarn). I got the sticks from my backyard, and for the hangings on the back I used tabs from soda cans! And then I secured it all together with hot glue...lots and lots of hot glue..

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas from CraftyAllie! Hoooooowdy-Ho!

End of the semester, finally!!

I am so happy this semester is over. Since last friday, I have recuperated most of my soul that anatomy had taken away. I ended up getting a 97% on the final and an A in the class! So happy. Overall I got 2 As and 2 Bs. Not bad. My sleep schedule has been quite reversed since I took my last final. I've been crafting (knitting, crocheting, etc) until about 6 AM, and then sleeping until about 3 or 4, repeat. Here are some of the things I have done since my last post!

 This is what 12 un-sewn scarves with no tassles look like! All but 3 were for Holiday orders.
 I FINALLY FINISHED THE PONCHO! This is my friend Rainier. He's great. :)

awesome beard beanie! There are even buttons on the side so you can remove the beard if you so desire :)

This is an all-inclusive picture for my orders that needed to be completed by christmas-time! And yes, that is an Eric Cartman hat in front there. :)

I also got my online store up and running! I used a site called Weebly, and they are so wonderful! You can make any kind of website you want (store included) and they don't take a cut of your profits! I love this site. Anyway, you guys should check my store out right here!

Well, I'm blogging whilst playing Mario Cart, so I must be going now.

Oh, and here is my awesome cat. 
He's so hipster, he liked CraftyAllie before it was cool.

Dr Who Scarf

So, in order to distract myself from the horrible lab practical I just took, I decided to write this post.

I'm making this AWESOME scarf for Fletcher for christmas. Since we live together, it was pretty much impossible to keep it a secret. But that's okay. I found the directions for this scarf here. This person (or people) have listed out fabulous directions to make pretty much any version of the Dr. Who scarf actually featured in the series.
 This was my progress as of last weekend
And this was my progress as of either yesterday or the day before. Hopefully I can finish it up by christmas!

This is what it will look like when it's all finished!

Okay...time to go study more anatomy, psych, statistics, and spanish. Estoy muy lista para las vacaciones de Navidad!

Latest completed projects

I have been way more busy than I'd like to admit. HOPEFULLY, I can return to having a normal life after finals week (not this week), but next week. I only have a practical, 3 extra credit papers (that are due today...I should probably get on that..), and 4 finals until freedom! Honestly, it's my anatomy final I'm the most scared about. It's so hateful :(
Anyway, here are some of the projects I have finished up since my last post! Not quite as many as my last post though.

 This is my absolute favorite headband I've ever made. BOOMER SOONER!
 Yes, that is SouthPark playing in the background. :)

I know this picture is upside down! but I wanted you to be able to see it as if they were on your hands! This is with the flap off.
Aaand, flap on! These were made for my good friend Kayla :)

Hopefully finals week won't completely kill me. I might post more before then, but most likely after. I hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving (yeah, I'm a few weeks late, oh well!)

Happy (late) thanksgiving from Me, Binxy, and Fletcher!
