Amigurumi sidetrack

A dear friend of mine gave birth to a baby girl (a fellow Aquarius chicky yeah!) She really likes the Amigurumi animals, but does not know how to crochet. So I thought I'll give it a try.
I have crocheted before, but never made an Amigurumi before. I made this Giraffe, what do you think ? Like all things handmade and precious, it takes quite a bit of time.I used Merino babywool, very nice and soft, but maybe I should use cotton next time. I'll do some more Amigurumi's for sure and with my thing for froggies, I would love to do a Frog Prince of course, just for myself to day, I've got paintings to finish first too.

Zodiac Sign for 22 Dec - 20 Jan
I have set myself a challenge for this year,
I am going to make a spread in my Moleskine Journal
everytime the stars indicate the start of a new Zodiac sign.
So this is the first of the year.

Be Free !

I am struggling with this Zettiology style,
I would love to get one page right, but so far......
I am happy enough with the portrait part of it, but don't know about the rest, I'll take a break for a while and might get back to it again sometime. In the mean time I'll watch Teesha Moore's instructions a bit more...

Some Day My Prince will come

after watching Corpse Bride by Tim Burton before Christmas, I got inspired to make something Tim Burtonesque as well. So this is sort of a combination of that and the Frog Prince (I've got a thing for frogs you might have noticed)
