Frozen Elsa Crochet Doll

I have a queue of projects I’m supposed to be working on but after finishing my mom-in-laws baby twins, I didn’t work on anything for a while. I got home from work one day as tired as I usually am, plopped down in front of the TV to catch up on my stories and felt guilty I wasn’t working on something. I ease my guilt of watching too much television by multitasking and making crochet projects while I watch. It makes me feel like I’m not wasting my time in front of the television. I mean, I could be doing laundry or cleaning the bathroom but hey, I’m making something here, right? I’m accomplishing quite a few things at the same time. I’m resting from a hard day at work. I’m avoiding housework guilt free and I’m making something useful while deleting all those saved shows taking up all that space on my DVR. Who knew crochet was so useful 🙂

So, Elsa is being created. I experimented with a head shape I liked and came up with this:

Viva Las Vegas

I was able to travel to Vegas with my hubby for a few days on his business trip. The stars must have aligned because I don’t normally get to go.  Work schedules always work against us but this trip was during our Spring Break so I was Vegas bound. As a bonus, I scheduled in a visit with the in-laws so I could deliver the twin crochet babies I promised my mom-in-law.

I could have mailed them but it was so much more rewarding to hand deliver them to her. I’m always a little nervous when I custom make something for someone and give it to them for the first time. Happily, she loved them and her reaction was worth the stop over. It’s always nice seeing family so I’m really glad we went.

On this trip, we went see the Michael Jackson One Cirque show. The Cirque shows never cease to amaze me and this one was no exception. It was fantastic and so much fun.
