I have a lot of craft bits. Time lately, hasn’t been my friend enough to allow me to do all of the little projects I want to do. I think I want to try and change that. Josh and I have talked about doing some things around the house that will possibly let me be a bit more crafty than I was in 2010. Let’s hope so.

In other fun, I’ve discovered some new sites. Crafty Storage is a site after my own heart. Crafts and organization. Of course through Crafty Storage I discovered Creations by Christie. I love that she puts up crafty deals and steals on her site in addition to her work. I also discovered Bad Skirt with her clever use of binder cases as pattern cases. This gave me an idea to use poly envelopes for mine. Ideally yes, the boxes would be nice but poly envelopes will work for what I need.

OK. I think I need to go sit in my little ole craft closet and ponder what to do next.



finished footieI finished the footie. It sucks. It is difficult to get on and off my foot because there is ZERO elasticity in this yarn. I will use the second skein for doll clothes. This stuff was good for learning, not for wearing. I will update this entry later with a picture. I’m not even going to go through a materials used list. Screw that.

All in all, it wasn’t hard at all aside from the very tiny needles. I think I will just try my own thing next go around. I know how to do the toes and heels, I should be able to do it.

Don’t forget that today is Towel Day! Today also happens to be 10 years from the day I was supposed to walk the stage at graduation. I don’t regret not being able to. I wasn’t able to due to my missing rehearsal the day before. I was on a plane flying back at the time. Oops

Last night was miserable. I just felt very ill and eventually was. On my way back I made it to the foot of the bed and just decided to sleep there. I was fine until Skittles decided that she wanted to sit in my lap and lick my face. Poor thing gave up and fell asleep around 12:30. I think the last time I looked at the clock it was 1:33. I still feel achy, but I think I will survive.


For my husband, a link to “The Most Powerful Diesel Engine In The World“. It is causing my flashbacks to when we change the timing belt in our TDI. /shudders link via the BoingBoing archives

I am making chicken for the little ones. They actually like when I cook chicken, so there we go. There is a little groaning over the fact that they have to have a vegetable* too, but they’ll survive.

*By vegetable I am referring to anything other than potatoes and corn on the cob. Spoiled? Yes.

We are home once again. We arrived back last night and spent most of the day getting everything back in order. Our computers are back in their appropriate spots and we have plenty of Sun-Drop soda. AJ managed to get addicted when he was with us up there a few weeks ago. Sun-Drop is so good it is bad!

I’m extremely behind on my blog/journal reading, so pardon me if I am quiet.

I’ve gotten a fair bit of knitting done, but no chance to photograph anything. That would make another project for me to put on my quickly growing list of things to do.

That’s it for now. I am swamped with work that has backed up, so don’t hold your breath waiting for anything new here. Give me a few days.


Happy 11th birthday to my dear niece Brittany. Now if only we could get her to actually update her site. Silly girl.

I am home, but tired. My grandfather is better, but my grandmother is a different story. It is a story I am too tired to try and tell.

I worked at my mom’s shop today. It was VERY busy. I almost made more than my dad. I tried really hard but he made $35 more than I did. It almost made up for being closed three days!

Oh well. Time for sleep.
