Hiccup the Non-Magical Dragon March 4, 2013

Hiccup the Non-Magical Dragon does not live by the sea
But he is very special and has a unique talent that no other non-magical dragons have

Hiccup discovered this talent by accident at a young age after eating a bowl of cereal with milk
After feeling super full, Hiccup started to hiccup and a little bubble came out of his little mouth

You see, Hiccup’s biggest dream was to be a super scary non-magical dragon and bring terror to all the other animals *RAWRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR*

But sadly, the dream was crush after that bowl of delicious cereal with milk
Since then, Hiccup discovered that if he started eating cereal with a little bit of soap, his bubbles would get bigger and bigger

One time, the bubble got so big it engulfed him and Hiccup ended up living in his own bubble for days! (This was an AH-HA moment for him)
The truth is, Hiccup still scares all the other animals!  He traps them in his gigantic bubbles!!! MUAHAHAHahahahahhahaha

The Rumors are True October 11, 2012

There has been whispers on WordPress about the photos on my blog.
Yes, the rumors are all true!  My crazy and fluffy little dog, Teddie, takes all the creative photos on my blog!!!  *Hangs head in shame*

Teddie is such an amazing photographer and I didn’t want to share this secret with anyone but I couldn’t hide it anymore.

He has artistic eyes (when his fur are not covering his eyes) but is often distracted by smells (especially the smells near fire hydrants and at the base of tall trees)

In these photos, Teddie is sporting the latest camera gears: KnitKon D800 (Yellow/Orange), KnitKon D900S (Greay/Black), and Knitnon SLR 43X (Blue/Green). These are highly expensive cameras that even I’m not allowed to touch them!

Dog Breed: Toy/Mini Poodle
Age/Weight: 3 years old/ 11 lbs
Teddie’s Daddy: Cafe
Teddie’s Mommy: Mocha

Itchy’s Game October 5, 2012

Alligator Itchy is his name
He wants to share with you his little game

To play, Itchy will first hide in a pile of leaves
He’ll pretend to get lost and make you believe

Then when you are not aware
He’ll pop out and give you quite a scare

Depending if he’s hungry or full
He might just nudge you or turn you into wool

He is now ready to play with his owner, Peach 
Does he fail or does he succeed?

I was lucky enough to get a deal for the iPad off my friend
This new device takes away 1 hour of my sleep each night
While I sleep under the covers, I thought about my iPad getting cold
So I knitted Paddy a case, which took away 2 days of my life
Now Paddy can count the sheep while it sleeps :)

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Pattern based on: Shaun the Sheep

 

P.S. Let’s all blame Paddy for my lack of blogging action for almost 3 weeks!!!!! Peach’s secret will have to wait another week :( I am terribly sorry!!  *Uses Paddy to shield away all the flying tomatoes*  I miss everyone and I have sooo much to catch up on :( I miss stalking everyone’s blog and creeping on your lives :( :( :(  Thank you for all your previous comments, I will reply to them as soon as possible!!! :)
