Crochet scarves and Victoria `~♥~`

 Some more new scarves I have been working on ~ This is a big thick and chunky wrap around circle scarf. These are really warm and look really great on.

 This can be made in any color and worn under a jacket or over a shirt ~
 This is the same scarf but with a slight variation on the stitch. Done in a thick and yummy barley color. This color goes well with everything.
You can wear this wrapped over once or not wrapped at all, either way it looks fab!
 Chef Vic came home today with some wonderful goodies she made in baking today.  She made me the sunflowers and Allie the oreo cookie cupcake, needless to say we were very happy indeed......................
 Victoria with her nice new Land's End jacket she got for Christmas from Gi-Gi and her new Ugg boots we bought her for her 16th birthday!!♥
 Nice classic Uggs, she will not take them off, they feel that great.

 Our sweet Victoria, happy 16th birthday!
She also made the heart shaped bagel. She had the idea and made them for the bakery in her shop. I had one ~ yummy♥

 Victoria is the bagel queen. Happy hump day and let me tell you this has been a tough week. We are so use to having a day off from school or a delayed opening from all the snow in the past month that it's been murder going all day... lol We have off next Friday and Monday so there is hope! Have a great night.


Peace, love♥, and crochet... Debbie

My daughter Victoria is turning 16 on February 14th, Valentines Day. I can hardly believe it, time has just flown by. Soon she will be driving.
Because my husband still has not found a full time Job from being laid off almost 2 years ago we can not have a Sweet 16 party for her. This makes me sad but she is ok with it.  

 I took her to the mall yesterday and was able to get her Ugg boots. We found the pair she wanted and she is thrilled. I was able to do this only because I have sold quite a few scarves to friends and co-workers. I  thank God for them every day. We also got her a Free Hugs bracelet from Hot Topic and a Perry the Platypus hat from Wal-mart. 
On Valentine's Day we plan to use coupons and take her and the family out to dinner to Red Lobster. My parents are joining us for the celebration.
We also decided she could have 5 girlfriends sleep over next Saturday.... So all in all I think she will have a nice birthday...
I thought it would be fun to make the girls crocheted cupcake favors. I started them yesterday. I added a lot of rice to the bottom to help it stand correctly and weigh it down. I am not sure if I like how the bottoms turned out, maybe a bit fat, but they aer all made and the rice has been inserted, just waiting for the tops. 
Here are a few pictures of the cupcakes in progress..... I will post more when they are done and of course the party.
The different colored yarn I am using. I am making 7 in total...
The fat ( I think) cupcake bases filled with rice to help balance the finished cupcake.
 These are the materials I am using to make the cupcakes, yarn and rice.
Picture of 2 finished cupcakes, 5 more to go! I also added a hanger to the top of the cherry in case they want to hang it. This can always be cut off if they don't want it. 
Gotta run and go pick up my husband form work, watch the Super Bowl, listen to some yelling and eat some good food!!! The girls went to a Super Bowl party with their youth group!!!
Life is good! :)
