Today is the final day of the Mini Amigurumi Advent, Day 24. I can't believe it is the end, it has been so much fun for me to share these every day. I'm sure today's pattern is not a huge surprise, but I had to have Santa come on the 24th.

November is Diabetes Awareness Month, and more specifically November 14th is World Diabetes Day. Type One Diabetes is a huge part of our family's lives, and has been for the past 3 1/2 years, ever since my now 10 year old daughter was diagnosed just after her 7th birthday. 

Girl Elf- Mini Amigurumi Advent Day 14

A few days ago the Mini Amigurumi Advent was a little boy elf and today, Day 14 is a little girl elf. You may have already guessed that there would be a girl elf, I felt like specifying that the other elf was a boy, rather than just an elf, kind of gave away there was going to be a girl too.

Penguin- Mini Amigurumi Advent Day 9

 -This post may contain affiliate links-


Today is the ninth day of the Mini Amigurumi Advent, and today's pattern may not be the most Christmasy of all of them, but I think it is still pretty fun. I don't know why penguins so often end up as Christmas decorations when they live at the South Pole, rather than the North Pole, maybe just because they are animals that are associated with snow and winter? I don't know, but when I was trying to come up with 24 ideas for this series a penguin was one of the ones I came up with and I decided to go ahead with it regardless of whether or not is makes sense.

Today I am interrupting the Christmas crafting to pop in with a Thanksgiving project. It is always kind of weird as a crafter because I want to get a head start on upcoming holidays to make sure I have the projects done before the season/holiday they are for, but also thinking about the current season/holiday and coming up with ideas for that.
