Empoyees Can Be Nice

Two coffee cozies and a buddy!

The coffee cozy was a free pattern/tutorial on the Sitting Tree blog. It had a version for knitting as well (too bad I don’t know how to knit..). So check it out!! Super simple and fast. (longest part was trying to pick out what buttons I wanted to put on it.) My coffee cozies and buddy are in support of Starbucks. Also, a shout out thanks to the lady at Starbucks who gave me these empty ones to see if they fit. Thank you nice Starbucks lady.


Meet Floyd. He’s a monster.

I can finally post some pictures of him. I had to wait because he was a gift and didn’t want to spoil the surprise. The pattern came from the Itsy Bitsy Spider shop on Etsy. He was a lot of fun to make, but was challenging compared to some of the other projects I was doing. However, I am very pleased with how Floyd turned out. :)


My octopuses..uh..octopi…uh..let’s look it up.

Definition of octopus from the Oxford Dictionary: “The standard plural in English of octopus is octopuses. However, the word octopus comes from Greek and the Greek plural form octopodes is still occasionally used. The plural form octopi, formed according to rules for some Latin plurals, is incorrect.”

My octopuses. :)

A Hippo Who Likes Flowers

My hippo likes to smell the flowers. Deal with it.

The Hippopotamus by Anonymous

Consider the poor hippopotamus:
His life is unduly monotonous.
He lives half asleep
At the edge of the deep,
And his face is as big as his bottom is.


My bunny took forever. Probably not gonna make a lot of these little guys. But I have a joke!

How do bunnies stay healthy?

I know it’s cheesy, but I had to. :)

Birds on a Bench

A couple of love birds sitting on a bench tweeting away. *insert Twitter joke here*

I love my little birds. They are adorable.
