I'm lovin' elvis. :)
it's been a little puddly here in my corner of the world and I'm kind of enjoying driving around splashing in the rain :) I feel like shamu in my car spraying everyone as i hit a puddle. i don't drive away from puddles. i go out of my way to drive through them.
lately i've been trying to plan ahead some projects that I've had in mind to do. And i came up with this merry little kit. no more hoarding. i keep reminding myself. sheesh. anyone watch the show "hoarders"?! yikes. so yeah. i'm sharing the paper love :)
25 papers including envelope, embossed, flocked and vintage papers. yum.
so my goal starting december 1st is to share a page from this mini everyday until the end of december. I'm really hoping to record the everyday sweet moments here. last year i kicked myself for not doing it but this year it's going to be different. :) I have listed 7 in the shop if you want to create your book along with me. I also included 20 embellies to go along with this kit.
I love the mini crochet doily! Looks like a snowflake. xoxo
I made the crochet flower using some vintage thread I found while thrifting. it's so soft and feels so happy every time I play with it. love! So yeah, i've got a plan and I'm ready with my kit to make it happen. I told mr.handsome. and he almost died thinking he'd have to be in 25 pictures for this book. lol! i told him he just has to be in 5 photos. he's getting off easy, i know :)
so last week i had a crochet date with a lovely friend.
i taught her her first basic chain stitch and I got so excited for her that I had this desire to learn something new myself.
later in the week I couldn't sleep. it was about 1 in the morning and i was wide awake. and i so happened to have my little crochet bag on my nightstand. i youtubed "learn to knit" and voila! 2 hours later i was knitting away like a busy bee.
i used chopsticks.
umm... i didn't really have anything else. i ran to the thrift store the next day and found 5 pairs of needles for $2. as i was switching the chopsticks out i figured i would take a picture of it for added silly memories. yes. my children will tell their children, " grandma used chopsticks to knit. that crazy old lady".
rolling my eyes.
legacy. that's real legacy right there.
even if i'm crazy. i learned to knit. and i'm on a roll!
