Can not wait to knit these, I especially love the string of lights and popcorn/cranberry garland.
all found via knitpicks
As I am sure most of you that read my blog know that I don't scrapbook anymore, at least not at the present moment...BUT that doesn't mean that there aren't some paper "things" that I am a little excited about...or obsessed with.....whichever.....
First off I found a new place to STALK, for me it's new...
and via this site I found some pretty cool photos of some yummy yummy paper!!!
I could wrap myself in all this paper, I love it all so so much!! I am particularly fond of the string idea, love that idea, and the Pikku booth.....THE BEST!!!
Also I have to say that I am rather excited about this paper line by Fancy Pants Designs
In other news, I need to take better photos of the owl projects I just finished, but I have to go snag them from my sis cuz they were just gifted to her this past weekend at her baby shower, which was so much fun!!! So these will be okay for now, you get the basics...
This first one is a little hat for Solo(that's the new baby boy's name). They eyes look a little wobbly in this photo, lol...
And this one is just an owl for Solo's room, it's knitted and then felted up. I have started to do knitted projects that are a little more difficult, using my brain is fundamental for me whilst I'm knitting now, I have discovered scarves just don't do it for me anymore, lol....now that I have about 30.
And this last one is just a quick peek at the cupcakes I made for the party, my food contribution, clearly I had my own personal bird theme going on...
I'm back and it's so nice. What's the saying....you don't know what you've got till it's gone? Something like that. I am so excited and energized about blogging again. I am so excited that I toss and turn with new ideas every night.......yes I have missed my little blog THAT MUCH!!
So what's new!?!?
Let's see.....I have been knitting like a mad woman, a cute, crafty, young woman...not old shut-in spinster woman.....JUST to clarify, lol. As you can see owls are my thing, I can not get enough of them, I love them, all shapes and sizes. So that's what I have been knitting, owl softies, owl hats, nests with little owl eggs...FUN stuff that I can't share yet cuz they are for my sister and her baby shower, which it this weekend so photos soon I promise.
My mom and I have decided to collaborate and do a crafting/sewing book. YAY!!! I have always wanted to do something like this with my mom who is a crafting Goddess and has always inspired me to craft.
Facebook is dangerous...cuz I have been doing that one non stop too.
There are so many new songs and bands that I have discovered or rediscovered recently, excited to share them, which I will in my playlist in the sidebar.
My Etsy (aka The Owl Shop)store is being filled as we speak with so many different kinds of things, prints, projects patterns, pdf classes........HOLY MOLY!!!
J and I are still looking for jobs.....this economy is HARD HARD HARD right now...but something will come I can feel it!
I have been engrossed in True Blood, love love love that show! Plus I am reading the books too.....if it isn't one vampire, it's another right!??!
My sister is having a baby and I have been planning and creating for the occasion, which I will admit is WAAAAAAAAY more fun than I thought it would be.
Sorry about the randomness of this list, I'm a little eager.
I'm super inspired by these...
