Bookmarks, and tutorial

Hello to all! thank you for stopping by and taking a look!!
Today i have a brief tutorial on how I do my rings (as in my new patterns being released)


This is how i make the rings for my bookmarks, and any other projects that calls for a ring to be made. This is  my first video, ever.. sorry for talking so fast, and crocheting so fast, also for moving out of the picture way.. but hopefully the next ones will be better!! Interested in seeing other techniques? comment me!
Here are better pictures of the bookmarks. The pattern will be $1 and will be for sale, no later than Feb.1




Here is a bookmark i made for my SIL from the pattern:
My next projects are probably going to be a dragon plushy sewn  and another crochet square bag.  using: and maybe having a blue jean liner and handle to it... well, thats the plan.. wither or not it turns out that way will be seen.
I think that is all for today, thanks for stopping by, comment if there is anything you would like to see!! ~hazel~crochetamommy

I am thinking of making a Valentines day gift basket, and putting it up for raffle.. using a number generator..  the basket will be in a cute little wicker basket, with a half apron , 2 crochet dish clothes, a butterfly homemade candle and a card (optional) and depending on how many entries, a little crochet bunny/bear. everything will be made by me.

thinking of $1.00 per entry... is that too high? or need to be higher, i hope to make everything with the fabric/yarn/wax i already have..  and depending on how many entries i get, the shipping will be free, if i get enough to cover it. (will ship USPS Priority Flat Rate Medium box $11) US entries only, unless international entries are willing to cover complete shipping cost. (so, i really have no extra money at all... would love to offer free shipping to all, but i…
