crochet pokeball

I’m really sorry for posting content that strays from the theme of my blog, but I would really appreciate if you could hear me out. I’m an autistic stay-at-home mom (yes, we exist) who owns a tiny Etsy shop to try to bring in some extra money to save for the future. Well, my partner suddenly lost his job and we don’t have money for groceries, rent, diapers, or anything really… He was not at fault for losing his job, his employer just told him he couldn’t afford to pay him anymore without giving him any notice… so we didn’t know this was going to happen and we’re scared. Even if everything somehow got sold in my shop, it obviously wouldn’t be nearly enough to get by until we’re able to get new jobs, but at least it’s something! So if you could please REBLOG this, I would be so grateful. I also take commissions for custom crochet plushies, so send me a message if there’s something I can make for you! Thank you so much for reading ♡ My Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/CottonStitchDreams?ref=s2-header-shopname

Weekly Round Up - April 2nd, 2017
This week was a bit weird. I lost some momentum and came in short of my weekly goal. However, I did manage to hit my NaKniCroMo goal and have set myself up for a strong week next week (assuming I get to A C Moore to get more of the yarn I ran out of) and I did design two more Pride Whales!

Weekly Round Up - March 19, 2017

I had a really productive week this week! Between being snowed in and on spring break, I cranked out a dalek, three Eevees, a bisexual pride dragon, an asexual pride dragon, 2 Pansexu-Whales (one for stock one for an order), 2 Asexu-Whales (also one for stock one for an order), 4 Love Balls, two Pokeballs and a Great Ball! Whew!

I’m a little sad to see the couch empty now but I’m always excited to start over!

Weekly Round Up - January 29, 2017

After such a slow week last week, I’m really proud of what I accomplished this week! I managed to finish a Totoro, three Chibi Pikachu, two Chibi Umbreon, two Pokeballs and I made a dinosaur to test the self striping yarn that I have! My wrist is holding up fairly well and I’m looking forward to more yarn this week. Also, I went to a pet expo today and met so many dogs and several alpacas.
