Barefoot sandals in action

I have pictures from three different people who were very nice to share them with me! The baby ones ate turning or a little big, but babies grow into things! They look so cute. The adult ones seemed sized just right and look great on her. Than you all for the pictures.

New Angel

I made an angel today that looks more rounded. I used a smaller needle, so she’s a little bit smaller. Instead of using my own pattern for the skirt, I found instructions for a cone that worked better. Then I added really small lacy trim on the bottom.

I also added a halo!

Cute little winged hearts

I’ve been making these in all different colors. I’m going to do some school spirit ones in local school colors too.

Here is the pattern I’m using. I changed it a little so that both sets of wings are facing the same direction, but it works as is.

Listia and Facebook

I’ve been posting crocheted things on listia lately. I made a new crochet album on Facebook. Today I made a headband that only took ten to twenty minutes! I love it. Here is the pattern.

My Etsy Store

I made an Etsy store. I’m not expecting much to come from it, partially because my pictures are awful! Most are cell phone pics I snapped quickly to show someone what I was working on or post it here, not to put in a store online!

Here’s the link: http://www.etsy.com/shop/jessicascrochethappy

I figure it won’t hurt anything. It was just 20 cent per item, and I only listed 17.

SOPA – What’s it all about?

I encourage anyone hearing about this who is curious to go and read the actual bill and then decide for yourself how to respond!

I wrote an email to my Representative and signed an online petition.

This bill can directly affect creative outlets like wordpress.
