Indoor Snowball Fight

January 28, 2013 - Filed under How-to, Inspiration, Yarn

My apologies for the lack of posting around here lately. Things have been quite busy, and I just haven’t had the time. My family came to visit us in Mexico over the holidays, and we spent a big chunk of time searching for a new apartment. Then, we just barely got settled in the new place before Mike’s parents came down for a visit. They’re still here for another week, so posting has taken a bit of a back seat. But hey… with all the crazy holiday craftying in December, you probably enjoyed the break.

As I mentioned we’re in Mexico, and although I LOVE not having to shovel snow, there are parts of the fluffy white stuff that I do occasionally miss. When I came across this adorable idea for an indoor snowball fight I was instantly smitten, and knew I just had to share it with you.

You can use a pom pom maker like this one from Clover ($8.00 USD).

First off, sorry for the long gap between posting, I’ve been traveling through Southeast Asia, and it’s been a little hard to motivate myself to search out new crafty and cool things, but don’t worry, I’m back and I’ve got a great new site for the knitter in you!

With fall just around the corner, why not check out one of the DIY kits over at Wool And The Gang and knit yourself something fabulous. Each kit contains a pair of wooden knitting needles, the pattern, a knitter’s sewing needle, a croche hook, and all the yarn you’ll need to make it. Plus you can even choose your colors.

If you need to brush up on your knitting skills there are loads of how-tow videos and sketch demos, which will teach you the basics as well as a few tips and tricks to get you knitting like a pro in no time.

Not really a knitter but still like the looks? You can purchase the ready made pieces, hand knit by Peruvian women.

(Sorry about the lack of posts this week. We’ve been transitioning from Thailand to Indonesian, so our time online has been a little limited.)

For the last 9 months we’ve been traveling around South East Asia. It’s been an amazing experience, but unfortunately our nomadic lifestyle doesn’t really lend it self to well to crafting. I mean it’s not exactly practical to lug around a sewing machine in my backpack just so I can get my craft fix.

As a result I’ve been searching for a new craft hobby, something that’s not too hard to learn and that’s not too material intensive. I settled on Amigurumi. I found some really great tutorials online, and figured that yarn was probably one of the easier craft materials to find in Asia. Last week we were in Bangkok for a few days before catching our flight to Bali, and I made it my mission to get set up with some supplies.
