Oooh, these are so great! I've tried knitting a few times and got so frustrated with my uneven tension. My mother is an amazing knitter and taught me to crochet when I was eight. Somehow the crochet stuck but the knitting didn't. Love the little birds on your covered buttons.

Oh Erika! I love those slippers!! I need to either find them in crochet or learn to knit already! ;)

And I LOVE your idea of a craft a month challenge. We totally should! Fantastic idea!

Oh an one last thing...
You are one that should REALLY link up an e-mail address to your comments. You're always saying something that I have something to say back to, but no e-mail to say it. If you don't have an address you would like to share with the blogging world you should make one at gmail or something. I've got instructions HERE on how to link it up. It only takes a moment. Pleeeease. ;)
