What I Did With My Yarn Scraps

I have a whole big bag of yarn scraps leftover from previous projects. Either not enough to make something with, but enough that "I might need for something". So i decided why not make some multi colored slippers. I'm pretty happy with the results.

They're very toasty warm too. I made a pair for myself. I love them since i can't stand to walk around barefoot, i wear them around the house and i also have a pair for when my feet get cold at night, i can wear them to bed.
 To see these and more, check out the slippers section in y shop HERE

Simba Had To Be Put To Sleep

Simba had to be put to sleep. They did more test and found he had congestive heart failure, a gallstone and fused vertebra in his back. He was in a lot of pain.
What a crappy birthday for me (Sunday)

This is one of my favorite pictures of him

My Crochet Since Last Time

I haven't blogged in a while because life happens. And honestly, i've noticed not many read my blog, they just pop in for the free patterns-that fine too, but i just don't feel obligated to post everyday anymore.

As far as Simba, he got the ok from the vet last week, but i'm still not convenced. He's eating about 1/2 a can of cat food a day which is not his normal 2 cans. I think his tooth is bothering him. The vet said his teeth where in pretty good shape for his age (18, not 20 like i thought) He removed some plaque and saw he does have a cavity. They charged $216. for the office visit, and the tests. Which may not seem like a lot, but it is when you have to come up with it suddenly and have to borrow. So now it looks like i have have to bring him back and get the tooth fixed. I don't know what they'll want for that..

Other than that, nothing exciting. The craft room/bathroom remodel is slowly coming along.-again,
need  money to buy stuff.

And as for my crochet, the penguin afghan sold pretty quick. Not sure when i will be making another. It was nice, but a lot of work. Not sure that it's worth selling in the long run.

And i've made some new stuff, too much to mention so you can check it out here in my shop Debbie Crochets

See ya

Not Again. Now Somethings Wrong With My Cat Simba

I know it's a part of pet ownership, but i can't stand the thought of possibly loosing another pet. I just lost my dog last July to cancer.

Something is wrong with my 20 yr old cat Simba. You can read about it on my Bubblews.
I have an appt for him tomorrow.
I don't know what it will cost depending on what's wrong with him. If you click on this link, or tweet i earn from it. I did cash out last night for $50. and they pay within a week usually. Thanks for all your help.

Or fel free to check out my shop for all kinds of crochet goodies

Featured Etsy Shop of The Day: Enchanted Rose Products Vallee Rose
Stretch bracelet of Green & black various beads

Green and white dangling ear-ringsHandpainted candle - shabby chic look - light pink rosesDangling earrings on sterling earwires with hematite & shimmering violet Swarovski beadsThank you for taking the time to visit my Shop! Free gift wrapping if you give me an extra day!

Every week (sometimes days) there will be new items and/or discounts. So check back often. My name is Vallee and I live in beautiful Colorado. I am a creative, highly sensitive double Pisces who loves to make things, paint, garden, simply create; make every inch of my home and yard unique and sacred.

I only sell things that I have made with love - I adore creating whether it is making scented glycerin soaps, Czech beaded jewelry, poetry books, photo cards, painted candles, gel candles, ribbon bookmarks, eye-glass holders/lanyards and more. I see something and I come up with an idea. I made a shell wreath from the muscles I ate at dinner one night and placed one of my watercolors behind it. This creation hangs in my bathroom. I love making things that others will enjoy for a reasonable price.

I am no longer able to work in the "regular" workforce so Etsy is now my home for work. I care for my husband, dog, cat, yard and garden so am never bored. I love the little bunnies, birds, deer and other critters around the house ( though can pass on the rattler I saw the other day while walking the dog). I am a nature sprite. This is a little about me. 

I also have a blog site with photographs, poetry and more:
and my poetry can be found at under the name of Vallee Rose and have a facebook page -
Thank you again for visiting my store.

Somewhere it says that I only sell to the USA but that is untrue - I sell worldwide!
