Another Hip Hop Inspired Hat Listing

I guess you can call this song "hip hop" since a lot of lyricists and producers sampled this song to bits.  I'm referring to Nautilus by Bob James.

Anybody who's anybody would name off top at least ten songs that sampled this classic, most notably Ghostface's Daytona 500.  Can't list them all since that list would be extensive...and I'd end up missing class.  And since I'm talking about crocheting, here's my latest piece...

The "Nautilus" Drawstring Tam

Well, I gotta split.  Astronomy class awaits...  😉😉😉

Mentally in a Funk...

Always in a crocheting mood, but I can't even come up with any creative names for my Etsy listings.  Now that sucks.

Not to mention, I've been running back and forth between Torrance and South Central looking for this particular color of yarn at Joann Fabric & Crafts, only to find that they haven't stocked up on it since some lucky bastard bought the last roll I was gunning for.  Oh well, off to Glendale...

Seems like Joann tempts me to blow my money on yarn; I'm getting all these 40%, 50%, and 60% off coupons every other week.

Anyway, I put up two new listings on Etsy.  More hats to come if I can think of some funny names.

New Semester, New Drama, New Tams

Back in school...well, the semester started on the 6th.  Man, that was a short winter break...

We had a nasty blackout at my place this past Friday.  Had our power knocked out for half of the day.  Luckily I woke up to lights turned on and The Fresh Prince of Bel Air on BET.

Got a new smartphone last month...and dropped the damn thing.  😒  Now I gotta get the screen fixed.  Going down to the video game store in Lawndale to do just that after I tackle this homework like I was playing for the Rams.

And I listed some stuff on Etsy recently...prior to a cracked phone screen.

A Sistah Got Featured on Crochet Concupiscence

Man, what a day...I don't know if that's the medicine talking (I had a headache earlier that just wouldn't quit) or if I'm just naturally geeked, but my story and shop were featured on Crochet Concupiscence.  Excuse me while I take some deep breaths...

Not only that, I was also featured in their corresponding digital magazine, Happily Hooked, some time ago.  Ain't that grand!

Now in case you need some receipts, I can give you some receipts.  Here's the link below:

My Story on Crochet Concupiscence

I'm actually showing my face for once!  Normally I hide behind the internet, but I needed to break out of that shell for once.  I'd periodically check their website for some cool stories, but when I saw my portrait and name, hot damn...

In case some of you have never heard of this website, I'll explain it in a nutshell: Crochet Concupiscence is for crochet nuts everywhere in the world, and how they get through their days by weaving their respective hooks through the stitches of life.

I'm already feeling jittery due to those head meds, but I now have the shakes of joy like I sipped on some Starbucks coffee for the first time.  Now I gotta go; I'm suddenly in the mood to crochet some more hip hop stuff.  Y'all be cool, now!

Shout Out to a Lovely Queen

While currently messing around on Etsy, I clicked on a thread in the forums about submitting my shop site for indexing, and came across a video of a beautiful sistah who purchased one of my crowns a few months ago.

The Most High certainly works in mysterious ways, I tell ya...  And I say she looks regal in that hat!  Look her up on YouTube; her name is ieattofu68.  Sis, I want to give you a shout out and touch base with you.  I hope everything is everything, to quote Lauryn Hill (😊).  May you be blessed, and I'd like to do the honor of crowning you again one day.  Peace, sis!

2016 Can Kiss, Grits

We lost way too many good folks...even Prince, the Purple King himself (son of a [bleep]).  The orange demon goblin Donald Drumpf...excuse me, Trump, will be America's new president, and I ain't happy about it.

Yes, ya sistah gurl is still on Etsy.

And yes, I got some new stuff.  Here ya be.

The End of August

Ooh blog is dusty.  Yeah I know I've been AWOL since Prince died, but life is a real kick in the ass.  That, and I've gotten feistier, too.  And I forgot to mention that I turned 32 on the 2nd this month, and that my blog is in its anniversary phase (been three years since I started it).

I've put up some stuff on Etsy but I'm too lazy to pull up a whole bunch of pictures, so I'll show you the latest uploads.

The Mystery Patchwork Tam (customer gets a surprise)

The "Underground Jewels" Patchwork Tam

Lastly, the Hip Hop Boho Gypsy Tam

And finally, you guys can all catch me on Tumblr.  I ain't done yet.  Now I've got some editing to do.
