Totally Random - Some Things I'm Loving :)

Just some totally random things that I took pictures of and that I'm loving....

A slice, if your not a Scrapbooker you may not know what this is, It's a cutting machine that cuts alphabets and shapes out of your paper. My Birthday isn't until may but I begged for this early when our income tax came in, so i used a 40% off coupon from Hobby Lobby and this is my Mothers Day/Birthday Gift :) I love this thing.

I may have posted this photo before, but I'm loving these calenders! I hae the Pattern a Day one beside my bed on my nightstand/chest and the yarn harlots calender is on my craft table :)

You may remember that for Christmas Jake had purchased me a refurbished 1st Generation ipod. Well, it locked up and crash on me :( It was a very sad Day. Jake was talking to a lady at work and she told him her kids had bought her an ipod nano for Christmas last year and she didnt' care for it and wanted to sell it... for $75... well an Ipod Nano 8gig is around $150 this is an Ipod Nano

Good price but the nano's are kind of small.... so I rolled my change up because I desperately wanted another ipod... When Jake took her the Money..... this is what he came home with . . .

IPOD TOUCH!!!!!!! OMG I'm in love with this thing... these are regulary priced around $240 apparently the poor lady had no idea or something.... This thing is wonderful, I can twitter, check my emails store recipes (saves on ink from printing recipes) play games, listen to music watch movies and video's this thing rocks... it does everything an Iphone does it's just not the phone :) I'm so happy.

Mom bought me a subscription to Simple & Delicious for Christmas, Love this magazine

Other things I'm loving right now are Animal Crossing on the Wii.
I'm addicted to twittering find me here

Valentines Pictures..

I had some pictures from Valentines Day that I never shared so I'll share those now.

Ashley and I made Candy Bracelets as her valentines for her class, you used cling wrap and twisted the hard candies up and tied together, We found this idea in our Family Fun magazine.

The girls gifts from their Nana

Ashley's gifts from her Dad
Pizza Party at Ashley's school, Abbey enjoyed some pizza as well

Silly kiddos

sweet Abbey

Sweet Ashley

We had a good valentines Day, Jake got chocolates and a 6 pack of his favorite beer and I got some external speakers for my ipod so I can jam while I scrapbook in my corner.

Happy Valentine's Day
by LoVe AnGeL

Having you beside me
Another perfect day
Praying you will never leave
Praying you will always stay
You and me forever and always

Vow that you will stay here
Always by my side
Life without your presence
Each day I will cry
Nothing compares to what we have
The love we possess inside
It is like an eternal flame
Never does it die
Each memory that we made
So wonderful and nice
Deeper and Deeper our love bacame
As the days went by
You're the reason I can touch the sky...

in case u didnt c it, the first letter of every line spells HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Little Bit of Spinning . . .

At our last Knit in, Peggy & Katie were so nice and brought their spinning wheel and drop spindles as well as some roving to show us all how to spin. I must say it was much harder than I thought! She says she'll bring it again and let us play, we did have a great time and got a lot of laughs. Here are the pictures from our night of spinning . . .

Calling All Crafters!!

Check out Vickie's Blog for the Details!!

Abbey's Birthday & Goodie Week :)

The week is full of goodies for me :) Tonight I have Knit In night at Starbucks with Knitorious. One of our members spins her own yarn, so she's bringing her wheel and drop spindle to show us how you spin your own yarn, I'm so excited! I can hardly wait.

Then on Friday I'm headed to Arlington with Danette to spend a girls weekend at Susan's house. I can hardly wait, I miss Susan so much, I haven't seen her in awhile and I haven't scrap booked since the last time I saw her. It's been awhile since I've been on a weekend trip away and I'm looking forward to it :) I miss hanging out with my girls :)

This past weekend was Abbey's 2ND Birthday Party, we had a nice turn out. I made Chocolate and Strawberry cupcakes and punch. She got Lot's of Barbie and Mostly Little people stuff which she loved, It was so cute the way she squealed when she opened the little people stuff. Too cute! She loved everything she got because she spent the entire weekend playing with all her goodies. She got a few cute outfits as well, Danette always has the best taste in clothes ;-) I have some pictures from the birthday I'll share below.

I went to the bathroom to cry for a bit last night, I had gotten pretty far on Ashley's Gretel hat and realized that somewhere I had gotten off on rows.. and with all those cables and increases I had to rip the entire thing out and now I'm starting all over again :( I was sick. Ah well, no matter how frustrated I get I must remember that knitting the item is 80% of the fun :) This hat is really fun to knit, I love making cables. Even though it's already brought me to tears once, but PMS did play a part in that. LOL!!!

Rumor has it that the Circuit City Warehouse may be cleared our before the end of this week. So Jake's job with CC will be over. We are waiting to hear from DOT foods. So keep your fingers crossed for us. We're trying to not be stressed about that chapter ending and remembering to welcome the new changes we will face.

I guess that's about it for this time. I have a lot of things I need to get pulled together to get ready for this weekend, I have a ton of pages already done that I need to add to scrapbooks so I can see what I need to work on next, I Scrapbook chronologically. The last time I scrapbooked I caught up on the girls books, so since it's been a few months I should only need to work on those few months :) But I am mostly going down for girlfriend time, so I may not get anything accomplished. LOL!!!

Until next time . . .
