4th of July Magnets!

The pic is not great as there's not adequate natural light today and I still haven't gotten a broad spectrum light bulb for the light box I haven't made yet.  So, please excuse the not-so-brightness of newest creations.  This was a custom order for a lovely client who wants magnets for every holiday :)

*rawr* King of the Jungle Lion Family Magnets

This family of lions was another recent custom order. Hear them *rawr*, or in this case *purr*.  Papa Lion is wearing his crown so that others will know that he is the king.  Realistically, Mama doesn't have a mane of hair but this is kawaii and she must look cute so she has a mane of flowing orange hair (aren't gingers the ones who have the most fun?).  The babies are the coolest cubs in their school with their candy colored manes.

Kawaii Fruit!

They say the recommended fruit servings per day is two.  Take your pick of these no calories and too cute to eat jumbo fruity magnets.

I made this Mario magnet a while back.  I actually forgot about it until just now when I was looking through the pics of stuff that I'd made :)

Another awesome purchase from Baby Accessories & More By Lorena

 I custom ordered a few weeks ago a couple of beanies big enough to hold in my hair.  Needless to say, when I got them in, once again I was pleased with my order.  Not only are they adorable and made to my specifications (I ordered one to look like a watermelon and another like carrot cake), they fit PERFECT!  My bun was held in nicely and I love that the hats also fit over my ears.  Very important for when the weather gets cold as my ears need to be warm in order for me to be happy :)  Check out Lorena and her crochet goodies at Baby Accessories & More By Lorena on Facebook.

Urban Gardening Update

So my second attempt at growing vegetables indoors is not going so well.  One of my cucumber plants died, the second one is sick, my squash plant is near dead--also sick.  Both the cucumber and squash are being killed by mildew.  I've been having an infestation of soil knats (they sure do love the organic soil I'm using) and I've been spraying often with a neem oil/dish soap/water mixture to keep them under control. In the meantime, unbeknownst to me, mildew is forming on the leaves of the squash plants from being sprayed with the mixture.  I can't help it.  I see one or a few of those buggers on the stem, and I spray to kill it.

Even though the cucumbers and squash have all but died, the cherry tomatoes are doing decent.  I have a few bunches between the two plants although one of the plants' health is questionable.  It seems wilt every other day and I can't tell if it's from a lack of watering (seems like I'm watering every other day) or something else that is causing it wilt.  When I do water, it perks back up within a few hours. 

Surprisingly (or maybe not), the sunflowers and the cosmos are doing awesome!  Can't say the daisies are doing too well but that is from a lack of watering.  I tucked the container of daisies into a corner and forget they are there most of the time since the vegetables plants tend to obscure that corner. 

Minature sunflower.

 Orange cosmo.  This is my new favorite flower. 

Baseball and Football Themed Magnets

This was a custom request for a 9 year old boy who loves baseball and football.
