The past several months have been especially busy at Crafty Bitch Headquarters (aka Mom's house), where we've been busier than Santa's elves on crack trying to get the presents and cards finished and ready to go out in time for Christmas. Now, I'm in no way implying that we do crack at Crafty Bitch Headquarters. Our speed is usually more along the lines of a nice glass of red wine, which is probably why it's now December 6th and we have a grand total of 11 Christmas cards crafted.
The truth is, there are so many fabulous things that you can do to be crafty, we've developed Crafty Bitch ADD. In fact, we've been working hard on everything BUT Christmas cards. This is partially my fault. I went looking for card making tutorials on YouTube and got distracted looking for tutorials on how to alter composition books. Which is cool because it ultimately led to us making these sorts of things:

There will be many more of these under the Christmas tree next year, because they are time consuming to make, but let it be known that if you are a crafty bitch, you can do just about anything with a composition book and some scrapbook paper.
In my spare time (ha!), I've also been working on these awesome crochet hats, which is really why I am posting this blog. I sent one to a friend last month and she raved over it, not to mention the fact that she looks super cute in it.

The one I'm in the process of making right now looks like this:
|Green and orange yarn wasn't something I would have ordinarily tried, but it works.|
This is such an easy pattern and it works up really fast. From start to finish, you can crochet this hat in about 8 hours, which is more or less two nights spent catching up with everything you've got stashed on the DVR because you've been too busy to watch your favorite television shows. Can you tell I'm speaking from experience?
Unfortunately, due to copyright infringement, I can't post the pattern on my blog, but I can give you a link to download it for yourself!
