FO: stitch markers

pretty

They’re not fabulous because I really don’t like the wire I got, so they’re kinda sloppy, but they’re prettier than the old ones!

Rainy Days

Ghetto fab...

I had to take Ravyn to school this morning (before it began raining, thankfully because one of my wipers went all ghetto on me…) and then went over to Michaels to satisfy a craft need. Have you ever been to Michaels right after 9:00 when they open? It’s soooo quiet and no one is there, it’s fabulous! Sure, I spent more money than I’d planned on, but I couldn’t help it… Or that’s at least the story I’m sticking to. 😀

I “needed” a memory book to scrap my Daytona pictures in, then of course I had to get cute stickers and rub ons to go with them… and a new glue stick.

They had Tropical Frogs!!! YAY!
Hehe… that’s Kira off to the right looking on. 😀

Then I needed some eye pins so that I can make some stitch markers. I’ve got a bazillion beads around here that could easily be put together to make some lovely stitch markers, but for some reason I can’t find my eye pins so I couldn’t do it.

Bead Stash patiently waiting to play.

But now I have them, as well as some new charms that I adore… they say things like Love, Live, Trust, Laugh, Create, Believe, Inspire and Imagine… so perfect!

Yay!

After Michaels I hit Panera for a bagel (which is currently calling my name from the couch cushion beside me) and an IC Mango to soothe my throat. Mmm…

IC Mango, oh how I love thee...

I actually don’t feel too bad this morning, I just sound horrible because my voice is shot. :p But… I don’t have any homework due until Sunday, so today I’m going to sit here in my jams and craft. 🙂 If I’m not napping in the afternoon I might go over to knit with the Ladies, followed by dinner with the Fam, then more knitting and TV watching with my Shawnie. 🙂 Sounds like a freaking perfect day to me! I really need to find an independently wealthy man who will knock me up and let me stay home so I can have days like this more often. hehe…

Happy Hump Day!

The only good thing a bout having the cold from hell is being able to knit. Actually, for most of the cold I’ve been passed out in bed, but today I was actually feeling human-like again and so I got out the Clap and worked on it. I went over to my mother’s house Monday night since it was her birthday and we watched tv, had pizza and cake, and then when she fell asleep on the couch I worked on the Clap. I ended up crashing at her house for the night since I was too tired to drive home and then I spent the whole day with her today (Tuesday even though this will post on Tuesday technically). I’ve managed to get through my first drop stitch row of the Clap and I’m so excited because it worked! I was seriously going to cry if after all of those increase rows it didn’t work out. Hopefully the other drop stitch rows will work too. Pictures soon, but I’m too lazy to get up and go all the way across the room to get my knitting. hehe… When I get up, I’m going to bed! 😀

As long as I can breathe tomorrow and I’m not coughing all over the place I plan on going to knit with the Ladies at TB. Don’t want to spread my germs, but I think I’m finally getting better. It’s been a week and I’m not miserable anymore and I’m also not sleeping 23 hours a day anymore so that’s a good sign. 🙂

For now… I need to go to bed so I can be the Good Aunt and get up to take my Ravyn to school in the morning. 🙂

Smootches.
