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

Here comes Plucky! February 4, 2013

Plucky the Turkey comes out to play
Just in time for Valentine’s Day!

He went on vacation around September
And didn’t come back till late late December

He was hiding from Humans during this time
Avoiding all grocery stores with people shouting, “Mine!”

Plucky might be delicious but no one will ever know
When it’s near that time on the calender he will just pack and go!



Pattern for Turkey: From the shoulders down the pattern is exactly like the Penguin in Jean Greenhowe’s design. From the neck up, I was knitting and just going with the flow. Unfortunately I didn’t record my work and I probably won’t be able to recreate the exact same head the next time I do it :(. *sigh*

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?

Kiwi is not a Fruit July 20, 2012

Kiwi is strange
He likes to sleep in the bookshelf
And loves to hide behind the books

Kiwi is adventurous
He claimed his first batch of coal in 2 minutes!
That was random…. I don’t know what he will do with it

Kiwi is intrigued by plants
He tries to practice climbing
and ponders about life

Kiwi is not a fruit.

Clown Fish in the Water swaps lives with Little Sheep in the Forest July 5, 2012

Early this last month, Lindsay from Handmade By Lindsay suggested that we do a craft swap! A craft swap is where two people exchange their handmade crafts. I became very interested in the idea and quickly decided that I wanted to knit a clown fish floating in some bubbly water. My clown fish lacks a few fins but I still think it’s rather cute!


After writing the post on Maggie, I received Lindsay’s craft the very next day and I was so excited when I opened the package. It was a sheep with a sign that says, “Knitting”!! The sheep is SOOOOO adorable and is very very well made! So much detail was put into it from the adorable expression on the sheep to all the little white balls on the body, and finally the lovely red heart sign to top it off! Let’s just say that Maggie was very pleased to have a new friend sit beside her while she knits! I really enjoyed this experience because we both didn’t tell each other what we were going to send. The little sheep is perfect and thanks again Lindsay! :)
