So Here's How i'm Doing at Superpoints

I loved that site. It was the one that you pushed the button to win prizes. The suddenly just closed down, but now they're back! So cool! It was one of my favorites.

Here's from their site:
Get 2,500 for each person that becomes a member using your unique invite link! Also, every member in your network earns you bonus Superpoints!
Distribute this link by copying and pasting it in an email, on Facebook, Twitter, or SMS:

Then they added this after i joined:

NOTE: In order to receive your referral bonus, the person you invited needs to complete the sign up process AND achieve the Bronze Membership Level.
 I figured i would still stick it out since it doesn't cost anything unless i wanted to pay $14.95 to advance up to the Platinum level instead of getting the required referrals etc.
Right now, i'm on the Bronze level with 15 referrals, but unless these referrals advance to the bronze level as well, i won't get the referral points, I do get some points of what they win on the button however, the biggest i got was 5,000 points from one referrals spin. ..I guess it's an incentive for members to stick with it and not quit as the payoff will be nice when the referrals reach the Bronze level.
 
So far i have 24379 points to cash out towards quite a few selections, $10 gift cards and assorted gifts etc.

My Crochet Today C2C Afghan

I found this pattern on Redhearts website http://www.redheart.com/files/patterns/pdf/LW1595.pdf for a corner to corner afghan.I' doing it a little different as i am using up my scraps and carrying a pink thread throughout to give it a more blended look. I'm just a little past the half way point now.
When it's done, i'm going to give it a solid color border. What i like about this is there's no holes like a granny square and the edges come out even so once you get the hang of it, you really don't need to worry about it coming out slanted because you may have missed a stitch.

An Old Project into Something New

I had made a bunny jar topper a long time ago and stashed it away with some other forgotten projects. I saw it again when i was going through the craft boxes and thought i would give it a new life as a security blanket. I just added a large granny square to it. Here's the completed transformation. 
I won't be selling this one since it has a glued on nose and eyes. If i make any more, i want to make it so the pieces can't come off.

New Crochet Key Fobs

I have started making key fobs / key rings. Actually, i never heard of the word fobs before but that's what they're called.

It's hard to find something unisex to crochet, but then i came up with these. 

They fit nicely around the wrist and they're not too big, but easy enough to fit in your purse or pocket. I have started making them in different colors. Here's some and the rest you can find in MY SHOP

Latest Crochet Dream Catcher & Some Great Deals I've Found

In my pursuit of trying to think up something new to make, i came up with this dream catcher /  wall hanging.
I had bought some metal rings for a bargin price at the thrift store. I didn't know what i was going to do with them at the time, but the price was right.

So i found a simple pattern for a small doily and just winged the rest. I didn't have feathers to add, but i think it came out pretty anyway.

Dream Catcher

I added some marbles to give the tails weight. I crocheted around small plastic rings for the base, an added beads and more plastic rings on the tails.

I may add feathers to my next one.

Now here's some great deals i wanted to mention;

Sponsored Tweets:

I accidentally spilled water on some of mine, and they wiped off with no stain or damage!
