Do you remember him? He is Topo Gigio, the sweetest mouse you'll ever meet! ^^

At first he was requested to me by a mother who wanted to gift her daughter, and, after, by a grandmother that wanted to surprise her granddaughter.

This sweet little buddy left a lot of memories in many of us! ^^

New Home

Today I want to share with you a project I've been working on lately. 

It's a digital project and it's the renewal of BuddyRumi's website! For some time now, I wanted to give it a cleaner and more up to date look. =)

Let's take a tour so that when the new website is ready you'll know what is what! =D 

Navigation

The header, navigation bar and sidebar are pretty much the same. I didn't want to make you feel lost in the new website so I only made some minor changes (for the best, I hope) in the site's navigation. =)

Hello 2014!!! =D

Hello crafty friends!!!

I hope you have a super 2014 full of health, joy and crochet!!! Hehe =D

2013 was a great year, BuddyRumi grew and took on new challenges. For the first time I started to make finished buddies and not only patterns (that really made a diference this December)! For now the finished buddies are only available through local stores but I'm thinking of making some available through Etsy too.

With all these new challenges some of the pattern releases have been delayed but have not been forgotten. I hope you'll be patient with me and wait a little while longer as I finish the patterns for the Tree Trunk Shaped Cat House and the Periodic Table Blanket.

In 2013 I made some of my favorite buddies so far!

News

By now you must have noticed that this past Monday I didn't post a Creative Jolt! entry. Since I wrote the last one, I've been thinking that, for me, it doesn't make much sense to have a fixed schedule for creativity because, like I said, for me is an organic process, I can optimize for it to come but I can't force it. Therefore I've decided to replace the Creative Jolt! series. I will still visit it but without a fixed schedule. I think we both will benefit from this freedom.

Next Monday I will start the In My Project Bag series where I'll share with you what I'm doing at the moment, what challenges I'm facing and what I did to overcome them. I will ask for suggestions and input, and even if I don't ask, it is always welcome!

I think we will have lots of fun with this new series!

Be Happy and Creative!

On the hunt again!

Yesterday I went out with my mom to buy more supplies! I was able to get the supplies I needed to complete some surprises that I have for you!

The fluffy blue one and the two brown ones are for two projects I'm preparing for Halloween. The green one is for a partner in adventure of a mysterious guy that is coming out really soon! The white ones are for two projects that I have going around in my mind but I haven't had the time to get to them yet. The beige one is to make Ami's tail for a Ami doll I'm making for my niece.

I also bought some more wire (there's some cool stuff coming out of that for this fall) ;)

One of the things I wanted to get were these buttons I used for Ami's shoes. This ones I had found in my mom's sewing box and she only had these two. I wanted to use the same type of buttons for the Ami doll I'm making for my niece  (when I'm finished I'll be sure to post some photos here). In one store we went they had similar buttons but only one of them was the right color and size =(

This afternoon I'm going to try some more stores we weren't able to go to yesterday. Let's see if I have more luck this time.

I also want to buy a yarn that I saw online that I think is the solution for a dilemma I was having lately (can't tell you, it's a surprise ;) ). The lady that I usually buy yarn from sells that brand and I hope she has it.

Just remembered, today is a holiday so the stores are probably closed =(

I think I was never more unhappy with a holiday. Oh well, will have to go tomorrow...

Be Happy and Creative!
