Halloween Crochet

This year I have been working on Halloween goodies to give trick-or-treaters. Usually I make some small amigurumis to give out with candy, making around 20 items.

GNOMES!

I have been crazy for gnomes this past year. I blame Gen Con. Well really I blame Gut Bustin’ Games and their Oh Gnome you Don’t board game that had a heavy presence at Gen Con. It looked like a fun game and we even got a demo at their booth. Also our niece took…

Turd Blossom

Totally inspired by Star Lord from Guardians of the Galaxy when asked what he was doing (he was dancing around) he replied something like I am distracting you you turd blossom. Turd blossom was one of those phrases that from the moment I heard it I knew it would forever be part of my vocabulary….
