Kitten and Mouse buddies

I've been wanting to make this kitten and mouse from Amigurumi no Nakamatachi for awhile... and I finally got around to it. I crochet the kitten with Bernat Galaxy yarn.. a lumpy loopy furry yarn. It was really hard to work with but I'm happy with the look it gave her. The mouse was crochet with a nice soft wool.. a nice change after the crazy kitten's yarn.
Both patterns we pretty simple. But I did do a change up on the mouse's ears. It called for gluing on felt ears. I didn't like the way that was going to look so I crochet a couple ears instead.

Seattle Vacation!

Over Valentines weekend my family took a train up to Seattle. We had a wonderful time! Taking the train was really relaxing too.
If you love Japanese products and you are ever in downtown Seattle you must stop in at the Daiso in the Westlake Center. It's a Japanese shop and everything is super cheap. Most things are only $1.50! If I had brought an extra suitcase with me I would have bought a ton of things.. but since I had limited space this is all that I got...

We went shopping at Macy's and I finally got the Harajuku Lovers fragrance I've been wanting.. it came with a free tote bag. We also went to Pike's place were I found a Tokidoki Cactus Pup.

Before our trip we bought a Flip camcorder.. so I made a little video montage of our trip. Enjoy!
