Mini Cacti Garden by PurpleTakara
Mini Cacti Garden
Another mini garden I whipped up while unable to sleep! Haha

Sand and cacti are made with Red Heart yarn. I pulled apart the yarn into smaller strands for the cacti and used a small hook to crochet them. Rocks were bought from a craft store and glued in. The tin that's holding them is actually an old candle lid!
Mini Succulent/Cacti Garden by PurpleTakara
Mini Succulent/Cacti Garden
Ever wanted one of those cute little succulent gardens but just can't seem to keep them alive and thriving?
Fear no more! 
This mini garden measures at about 7" tall and the glass vase is 4.5" in diameter. Comes with a variety of different types of cacti and succulents!
Crocheted with acrylic yarn. 

This cute little garden is for sale here
If you guys could do ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING you could to help donate, I would be soooo appreciative!!! I have some really cool perks for you to choose from as well!…
Things...were...INSANE over the summer. I had so much down time but I couldn't fit any of my craft stuff in my suitcase (packing was a nightmare) so I couldn't make ANYTHING over the summer which was really disappointing for me...
On the other hand, the experience was INCREDIBLE. I was a dancer/magic assistant for a wonderful magician named Hellevi. She is absolutely incredible and I can only hope to be able to work with her again!
Not only was I dancing, but I got to wear some of the most elaborate costumes I've seen, learned the ins and outs of huge magic tricks and illusions, made some really good friends, and overall had an incredible experience. There were its ups and downs, as any job, but I'm really glad I ended up going.

I am, however, VERY happy to be home and begin working on my next endeavors! I've finished up all commissions I had earlier, turned an old pillow into a new one that matches my room (my room is all purple, gray, and black...go figure), and even started on some other things!

Make sure to check out my store!! 
Tons of stuff in there that appeals to tons of different kinds of people! 
  • Watching: How I Met Your Mother
  • Playing: Smite

Hi all!
My name is Alyssa and I am very mediocre at a lot of different crafts!
I'm a university graduate with a B.A. in Dance. I'm currently a dance teacher and this page is a result of the things I do when I cannot sleep!
I crochet, knit, sew, sculpt, bead, draw, paint, glue, craft--I'll try pretty much do anything with what I can get my hands on!

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there.
 :happybounce:  Please, help me get this group off the ground!
