Hat Frenzy!

So sorry for not posting lately. I have been having a hat frenzy, ever since my mother gave Lucien a little circular loom to make hats for preemies. My hat production has skyrocketed from then on! I graduated from the little circular loom for preemies to child and now adult sizes.

So far, I have created lots of hats for my family. You may find my finished products from here, and here. Posting some pictures here as well so you can see:

Hats Completed: 26

Hats In Progress: 16

Since I have been posting some pictures of the hats I had completed on my Facebook page, orders had been piling up and I couldn’t keep up with them. I decided to put those orders on hold until I can manage to finish the ones I still have in progress or I will never get them done!

So far, I am enjoying making the hats. It is also fun to research and explore the many possibilities on how to make different patterns on the hats, as well. In fact, my Pinterest board for Loom Knitting is overflowing already with new ideas and patterns.

I just hope my hands won’t get tired enough for me to make for my whole family (and there is a lot!). :D

Blah, Creating, Me

Googly Moogly @.@

Really getting frustrated with this needlepoint project. I keep finding some miscounts and having to adjust my stitches and everything. That’s what happens when you put off projects for too long. When you pick it up back again, it feels like you don’t know how to start from where you left off.

Also, being nearsighted, I keep having to take off my glasses to work on this thing. Then after a few hours of working/restitching/cursing, I look up and I get eyestrain. And then lightheadedness. Anyone else feel this way when they’re working on a project like this?

Been taking off gaming lately. I haven’t picked up a game since a couple of weeks ago, hehe. :P Well, not quite took off of it, I only spend less than 30 minutes to check on other stuff before I have to do something else. Oh, who am I kidding, I’ve been gaming on iPhone/iPad apps like DrawSomething. Now that thing is addicting. It also hones my drawing skillz. :P

So now, I hope to finish my needlepoint project soon, and without the stress of finding miscounts and what-not. I would like to finish it before Easter, if possible. (That’s my birthday, by the way. Send me presents!)

Blastball, Hipstamatic and Websites

It’s been a while. Since I have this new website I’m working on, I might as well update.

Websites. I’ve been tinkering with my old domains again.  I was getting tired of using WordPress for some reason or another. Maybe it’s also why I haven’t been updating lately either.  However, I discovered Posterous from looking at an application developer’s website.  I was so intrigued, I just had to test it and try it.  After a few minutes, I was hooked.  I loved it so much, I decided to make it my main website for I Have Cramps.  So, for the past couple of days, I canceled my web host account for I Have Cramps, then had my domain point to Posterous, and voila!  Now, I’m happy.  And now, I can update my blog more and faster with just emailing.

I did the same for my Kaligrafix domain name.  I haven’t used that name in ages.  I don’t really know what to do with it yet.  We’ll see how it goes for now.

I’m also helping out my mom set up her praise & worship website.  They have this gathering one Sunday a month, to just share testimonies, have good fellowship and just being there for each other and their love for God.  She used a flash-based web host, which is really interesting in the backend, because there are so many tools and toys you can use.  The website is called Mabuhay Ministries.  Check it out if you like.

Hipstamatic.  I’m hooked with Hipstamatic.  If you haven’t heard of Hipstamatic, check out their website. It has the history and everything.  It’s really amazing how a couple of guys made a camera plus lens out of plastic in their own home.  Very amazing.  And this was back in the early 80’s.

Anyways, as I was saying, I’m hooked with Hipstamatic.  Well, at least for my iPhone. It’s an App. You can’t really buy Hipstamatics anymore unless the 154 owners of them are selling them in eBay or Sotheby’s for a high price (157 were actually produced and 3 of them are owned by the inventors’ family). I really love this app, just because of the effects you get when you take a picture. The effects it makes are just amazing to me.  I like it so much I might use it all the time when I take pictures.

Blastball.  What is Blastball?  It’s like T-ball but it’s geared for 3-4 year old kids. Dani just joined our local Blastball league.  She’s in the Green team, we don’t really have a name for the team yet, but we’ll figure something out.  So far, Dani has been enjoying the batting, but catching…not so much.  It’s because she hasn’t been able to run faster than her teammates to catch the ball.  Every time she misses, she starts crying to Luci.  Luci is the coach, by the way.  Originally, we had a different coach and team mom, but they had to move at the last minute due to the coach’s work. So Luci volunteered to help out. Which is cool of him since he works so much. But it should be good for him and Dani.

I guess that’s all I can say for now.  I hope to post more soon.
