New balance

Like everyone we all seek some sort of balance in our lives.. sometimes it takes us a bit longer to really find it and live in the moment.. I am back 🙂

Since my last post In October I have been transitioning into a new job, figuring out my wants and needs, among other personal things going on in my life.

First and foremost hello everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been gone for so long.. I needed some time to breathe and contemplate my next designs. I have created a few new designs .. tho they are not crochet items.. Say what!? Yeah I’ve been dabbling into other things but only to help with my future crochet projects.

What’s this new thing I’ve been dabbling into, you ask.? Well I finally got a sewing machine! So I’ve been learning to sew and create some unique pieces.. high wasted bikini as well as some green velvet bottoms (photos below) still a learning curve for me but I have been enjoying making outfits with my new sewing machine. I’ve sketched out a few other outfits I look forward to making real soon!

Among learning a new trait I’ve also been having some health issues as well.. been sick if not everyday every other day.. with the normal stabbing stomach pains.. tho my doctors have been running test not much of an answer as to why I’m feeling the way I’m feeling.. I did receive a phone call today from my doctor letting me know of my blood test results (3rd blood test) basically this is the second test that entails high white blood cell count .. the first test showed low platelets.. so with that said I have to go to a blood specialist to figure out what’s going on..hopefully I get more answers.. it would be nice to find the underlying cause and what we can do to resolve it.

So this has been my life lately .. crafting , working and doctor appointments.. but all in all life is good so far.. hoping to be a little more active with my blog. But if you do have any questions regarding anything please do reach out as I will do my best to answer them.

if you are interested in any of my work please do contact me via email Trippycrochetvibes@gmail.com or instagram Trippycrochetvibes .

Until next time beautiful people!

Halloween is coming! 

I can’t believe how fast this year is going by! Soon it will be December.. but before we can get into that let’s hop into Halloween first! 

Since summer is coming to a close I havent Crochet as much tops as I was in the beginning.. but don’t let that fool you, I’ve actually been crocheting a lot of  random items to showcase in my store as well as working on things that have yet to be finished.. But all is a work in progress trying not to rush it since I like everything to come out perfect. 

Halloween is right around the corner and I am super thrilled! I decided to try to expand my horizons by making cute little pumpkin hats for Bailey and Zelda (since boo boo won’t even dare to let me fit it on her..bummer) I really like how they turned out especially the cute little bow bailey is wearing (pictured below) 

She was napping and I thought this would be a perfect time to snap a cute photo of her wearing the bow. 

Bailey and Zelda both wearing pumpkin hats I made them. Lol they aren’t really a big fan of them but they at least wore them for a good minute.. 
I also made my love and I beanies for when it gets cold out! Which it’s cooling down already in Arizona! 
She didn’t mind it too much.. I promise lol.

It’s been super fun making these neat little hats for all of us. Too bad boo boo wouldn’t join in on all the fun. Tisk .. Tisk..  

I’m still making adjustments, but I’m learning as I go to ensure a perfect fit each time. 

Besides all the beanies and and pumpkin hats I’ve been dabbling along into another pattern.. Crowns! So far I have accomplished two.. one is for 3-5 years old which is the gold crown. And the other is a doll crown which is the green one. 

Videos posted below.

​  I am very proud of myself didn’t do too bad .. lots of practice is the key lol.

I’m looking forward to all the new things I’m going to make in the next few months 🙂 I’ve been enjoying myself lately since I can read patterns now! Very overwhelmed with accomplishment.. I’m sure we all feel that way when finishing up a stitch and or project.

Well I’m looking forward to all the festivities about to go down.. Hope you all are too! Pumpkin pie.. candy .. turkey all the awesome holiday goodness! Lol 

Also Be sure to check out my instagram page page Trippycrochetvibes for more photos and updates on my work. I Have a lot of things I can’t wait to share with all you! Stay tuned..

Until next time  🍂 🎃

I hope you all forgive me 😉

Lately life has been on a whole new level. last time i updated you all was the last outfit i was making.. On top of that my job cancelled all the transfers which stopped me from moving forward to full time. Well on Monday they notified me about the position and that they would like to offer it to me so i accepted it.. just like last time i am still waiting on that email. I’m hoping the best this time around and they actually go through with it otherwise i may have to resign and move forward with another company, which i have been applying to other company’s non stop just hoping on something  good to happen.

Sneak Peek ..

So for the last week I took some time off to recharge my brain since i have run into a crochet block (as i like to call it) with how i want my top to look like.  Some of you may relate that it can be rough to have a moment like that at a time like this! Yikes… But with a bit of over thinking i have finally came up with an idea.. or two… or three…a dozen of them so now i am back to the grind and going with the flow.

In case you maybe wondering what pattern I may have used.. i actually didn’t use a pattern for this most of my work is based on ideas i come up with and i then make it happen and come up with amazing things like the top below..
