We have someone very special to introduce to you! Presenting the newest addition to our family: Brielle Rylie Lau!
We feel so incredibly blessed to have two sweet girls in our lives, and we thank God each and every day for these two miracles! Amidst the fragmented sleep and non-stop nursing, I am trying to soak in all the precious newborn moments that are so fleeting. It seems like Myla’s newborn days were all a blur, and I cannot believe the difference that two years can make in the life of a baby/child! Myla has grown up so quickly and has taken on her role as big sister well. Baby Brie is so tiny and precious, and we are thoroughly enjoying our family time together during this special time of the year!
With all these big changes in our lives, I will be blogging less regularly as we adjust to our new routines and catch up on sleep whenever we can. You can keep up to date with me on my social media (Facebook, Twitter & Instagram) as I will update those more frequently! We were overwhelmed by all your kind words and comments when we announced Brielle’s arrival and our Christmas family pic through our social media- thank you so much for loving and supporting our family so much! You can also now sign up for e-mail updates through subscription by entering your e-mail address in my sidebar (under the “Most Popular Patterns" picture)!
We had a blast taking Brie’s newborn photos and including some crocheted props along the way- I will be sharing more photos and what else I crocheted for her in the coming weeks! If you’re interested in the jazzy little hat that Brie is wearing in this birth announcement, it’s a free pattern by “AlliCrafts" called the "Butterfly Hat" found HERE (I used the newborn size, but sizing is available up to 6 months). To see a photo of this hat by itself, check out my Instagram photo HERE. It works up very quickly and attaching rhinestones, gems, or flowers adds such a beautiful touch- we used hot glue to attach this flower that was meant to be a scrapbook accessory! And in case you’re wondering, I used Lion Brand Yarn’s Martha Stewart Extra Soft Wool Blend for this hat since I had so much left-over from the “Yarn Ball & Crochet Hook Pins" I made in the summer!
Too late for this year, but early for next year - a galaxy glitter ornament tutorial! There isn’t much specifically astronomical in this tutorial, but I think it would be easy to add some science-y details.
So I hand-built a Light-Saber for my brother as his Christmas gift this year
Using scrap aluminum tubing from a friend of mine, black acrylic wash, Spray-sealant and adhesive, Junked electrical parts, washers, a shattered spark-plug, copper tubing, brass hardware, LED casing, custom nuts and bolts, and a LOT of Dremel work.
I tried to create a hybrid of Rahm Kota’s leather-wrapped saber, and Starkiller’s saber from the Force Unleashed series.
So yeah. I make stuff sometimes.
[FUN FACT: THIS IS WHAT I WAS WORKING ON WHEN I POSTED MY “WORKING ON ART” SELFIE]
Making a unicorn! =3 (yes that’s Toothless in the background on the first photo! XD) She’s my first horse sculpture ever! I was always kind of scared to make one since I find their anatomy quite complex.. But I’ll never get used to it if I don’t sculpt them more often! X)
Made this cushion as a christmas pressie for my older brother. It features fuscia, mini strawberries and forget me nots. Especially fitting for him as he and family have recently moved into a lovely new home deep in the Irish countryside.
