Current projects, Doll room & stuff, Car applique, and Valentine's pins

I am working on a crocodile stitch purse right now.  You can't really see it, but I'm using black yarn for the back layer.  Here is the pattern that I'm following.  I made it larger (just increase with multiplies of 7).
I took my afghan swatch off of the needles the other day.  I need to make it twice as wide as the pattern calls for.  I'm making it for my youngest son.  Here is the pattern for it.
The other day I added a new room to my growing doll house.  I used 3 foam-core boards, one of which was cut in half for the side walls.  I used scrapbook paper and ribbon for the walls, and I kept part of the foam-core visible.  The floor was made using real floor tiles.  I picture this room being a dining room / kitchen.  I am very happy with how it looks.
I then played around with making a doll stool out of a plastic bottle cap, fabric, coffee stirrers, and a glue gun.  I want to paint the legs white.
With some of the leftover scrapbook paper from the walls, I made this mini gift box.  It is small enough for a doll to hold.  I want to make a few more and create stacking boxes for the doll house.
I crochet this car applique the other day that will become a magnet for my swap partner.
Tonight I quickly made my 5 year old's teacher some heart pins for Valentine's Day.  They were very easy to make.  I then attached them to their Valentine's Day cards.
