My first non crafty post

Okay, so I'm on this quest to be more girly and I think I'm finaly getting some where with it. I've wanted to be more girly for like the past 7 or 8 years but I always feel akward when I wear girly clothes so I took a hugh leap and went and blew my whole $100 dollar gift card to jcpenneys on girly shirts so hopefully I'll wear them and not feel strange.

My crafty christmas gifts

I thought I'd start this post with a picture of Collin is his new helmet and pads that go with his new baby quad but the quad is broken so hes spent the couple of day wearing them for no reason.

This is the sweater I made for my step mom for her birthday that was in april and I just now got a picture of it. I converted this pattern from knitting to crochet and I just added the dragonflies after it was done, I used simply soft in two different colors of purple.

This is the gingerbread house I made with my dad and son on christmas, we used a pre made kit, COllin was really helpful when it came to eating the candy.

This is my new sewing machine my dad bought me for my birthday, its the nicest one I've ever had.
This is the sweater I made for a family friend, I used this pattern and simply soft I had to add alot of length to it but it turned out really great.

So I have a very short attention span so when I work on larger projects I have to make random little things in the process. I made a pink bear for a friend who also got a sweater from me for christmas na d the elephant is for my dad, he thought it was cute. He really likes the the ears are two different sizes.

christmas update

okay just a couple day before christmas and I am almost done with my crafty gifts, the scarf for my step mom is done, a little elephant and 2 peices of my dads blanket are done and an elephant for him, I'm going to finish his blanket after christmas, and a pink bear for a family friend is done but the sweater I'm making for her isn't, I still haven't finished the second sleeve and I have to adda couple of inches to the bottom. I'm going to post pictures of everything probably after christmas. and the rush is on. I was trying to get the sleeve done today but my arms hurt really bad from my super bad hair day I'm having today, and to top off a bad hair day, when I dyed my hair on tuesday I missed a few place and it didn't take everywhere so I have to fix it soon.

Work is hard!!

Okay, so I sewed on about 170 labels yesterday and now my back is killing me since I don't have a proper place to sew and I have scoliosis and because of this job I'll probably have to start wearing a really ugly back brace again, urrrrggggg, and I have had no time to work on christmas gifts, but thats my plan for today and to top it all off my son is sick. Tomorrow I have to go over to my moms to see my brother and sister and pick up my birthday presents so I think I'm going to borrow my dads car. I should also be getting my first pay check today, it only going to be like $50 but hey, its money.

Sorry for all the ands apparently its my favorite word today.
