I love that story.

School's out, kids are home, and mommy plans lots of day trips. At our house if we stay in one place too long, someone is going to get into a fight. So instead of waiting for the inevitable, we are out the door, visiting a bounce house, swimming, checking out library books, heck, even Ikea counts as something to do. Every day when we drive into the neighborhood its a contest to see who will get the mail. Usually before I can get the words out, "Who wants to get--", I'm cut off by three little shouts of "ME!" Its the ultimate reward when one of them gets the mail and there's a key inside the mailbox. That means there's.....a PACKAGE.
So today when we got the mail there was that extra little key to the extra big mailbox. And what was in that package?

It was the Interweave Crochet Amigurumi Calendar! Look right there in the middle. See that stripey pink monster? That's Lovey and she's mine! I wasn't expecting it yet so when it came I was so surprised! All the stuff in the calendar is really adorable. I'm not sure when it will be available to order but my guess would be before 2012. Ha.

See all those other cute toys in there? Pretty neat, huh?

Besides admiring my monster in the glossy new calendar I got today, I'm working on more iam8bit stuff. This is totally NOT giving anything away if I show you these sneak peeks of what I'm doing for a new project for the show. Really. You will probably think its one thing but it will be something totally different. So here....

Pac-man ghosts and a little Kirby! I jotted down some patterns as I went but I'll get to that another day. They are small parts of a bigger picture. Hopefully I'll finish in time and you'll get to see them! Otherwise they will probably make cute Christmas ornaments.
Hope you are all having a great summer! What are you working on? I'd love to hear in the comments below!
