New Original Amigurumi Crochet Design: Rocket Ship


I am excited to announce my newest crochet pattern addition to the site...an Amigurumi Rocket Ship! I made this for my 1.5 year old for his space/robot themed bedroom which is in the works, and decided to write it down as I went to make my 2nd pattern. Check it out here!

As you can see, my Photoshop skills come in handy for many projects!

MOMS Club Newsletter Design

I've just recently taken on one "pro bono" project, designing monthly e-newsletters for our local MOMS Club here in Bloomington MN, of which I'm currently a member. I always enjoyed doing the newsletters while I was president of the IDSA Minnesota chapter, and thought that I'd offer up my services to do another!

This pdf newsletter is emailed out to all of the members each month, as well as published on the chapter's Yahoo group page. It contains articles, an events calendar, new members, birthdays, classifieds, etc. I have also developed a set of rotating color schemes that change with the seasons.

I hope to be able to share more of my upcoming projects (non pro-bono), when they enter the public eye and are no longer confidential...stay tuned!
