A woman who works with her hands is a LABORER; a woman who works with her hands and head, a CRAFTSMAN; but a woman who works with her hands, her head and her heart is an ARTIST. ~ St. Francis of Assisi

I got a cricut

I got a cricut. It is cool. Only problem is the cat hair. This should be posted in the if its paper blog which I have done so but I was so excited I thought I would share.

This is too funny

I once was sitting watching tele and I happened to look at Ms Lillie and she just happened to be sitting on the coffee table and a fly just happen to fly by and she just happened to stand on her hind legs and catch the fly with her to front paws. It was a hoot

Good News and Bad news

I got a goody

I got a hair straightener. I got a good deal. Details later.

I just finished Inkspell. It was a pretty good book. It was my second time reading it. I am now reading Morality for Beautifulr girls. It is in the series The NO. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. I wonder if the author planned to make it into a series when he wrote the first book?

Probably so. It wasnt his first book.

Oh I did bad

I went and bought a Cricut. I am excited but I did bad!

A big fat undo

The unraveling process did not take so well so I unraveled it to a nice brown ball of yarn. Now I have to find the pattern again and start all over.

They Finally put a chick Fil A in west Columbia. I been telling anybody who would listen (and thats not many people ha ha) that they should for 15 years now!

AC Moore

AC Moore has 10 balls of yarn for 10 bucks and some of those yarns are 7.00 a piece. I am after the suede ones to make a blanket for somebody special.

Went to the library

I went to the library and got some more card making books. Oh the ideas are spinning around in my little head like a hampster on its wheel!

Big Disappointment

Pooh AC Moore Yarn sale was a HUGE disappointment!


I was watching Harry Potter and they were at a quidiche (sp) match and they were all wearing scarves that were their house colors. Why dont I make those??????

Need some needles

Would you believe I have a zillion needles but only on #6. You can knit with one needle! I wonder where that other went. I want to knit dusting pads for those swiffer mops. One ball of yarn seems simple and something for ETSY to sell.

The instructions says #7 needles. I actually did a swatch for gauge and apparantly I knit looser then I should.

Well I gotta go to bed now. I am up way to late. I gotta get some gas too.

Best Tip Ever for knitting

The Best tip I ever got was to put a rubber band or tie a scrap piece of yarn to one needle. The one I put the marker on is the Purl needle. So everytime I start a new row using that needle I know I need to purl!

Here is an adorable and VERY EASY Kimono Card I made for my secret sister. She doesnt know who her secret sister is but if she put the clues together she could figure it out :-) What stinks is I put a button on it and it doubled the cost of postage!

Here is what I came up with. See what I mean... each one I think is better then the last one. I really enjoyed making it. The card base was no problem. I just had problems with the embellishments. It took a while to get it just right. I think I did. I also made a japanese girl to tuck in the card to use as a book mark if wanted too.

Hope this inspires you like it did me.

Friday Night Blog

Yeah Harry Pottery and the Half blood Prince will be out July 15. So to celebrate I am going to watch all five of the previous movies this week. I am watching the Harry Potter and The Sorcer's Stone. The beginning of it all!

Yesterday I was finally able to rent Ink Heart. It took me two weeks to find it in the little red box. Thats a pretty cool way of renting movies. $1 per night and they are mostly new tittles. That is if you can find the movie you want. Like Ink Heart! It was pretty good. Like all movies they do not follow the book exactly. This movie endeded really at the beginning of the second book. It was pretty good. The fact that I had to wait for it kind of billed up the hype. To much I suppose. It was pretty good though. I really love the book.

Last week I couldnt find it of course so I rented Taken with Liam Nielson. That was pretty good too. At the end on the boat I was getting a bit tired of all the fighting. It had a happy endings. I like Happy Endings. I hate books that dont have happy endings. I will peak at the end of a book to make sure it has one. Take for example the last of the twilight series. I peaked to see if the main characters were still alive. I wont tell though. Peak for yourself!

I just finished reading David Baldacci First Family. It was pretty good too. Not all of it ended happy but it wasnt tragic either. He is one of my favorite authors. I didnt read it right away so I had late fees. For shame on me.

I have tons more to blogger about but I think I will watch the movie instead.

Friday night blog peak

I read this article on bling your blog. It was not informative but inspirational. So I might bling my blog on friday night blog.

PS my dog is checking to see if I am watching him making so he can lick the furniture again. He has the saddest eyes. But I will not allow him. Who wants to sit on a couch with dog slobber on it.

The couch and the love seat and the easy chair

Why does my dog lick the furniture for?

what a pain it is

Do you know what a pain it is to go to bed? I sit on the couch saying to my self I am way to tired to go to bed. Makes no sense? Think about this.
You have to feed one cat in a cage.
You have to feed the other cat on the table.
You have to feed two dogs outside.
You have to open that can of dog food but first you have to locate the can opener. We do not have an electric one. Got tired of them not working properly and the cans falling and SPLAT a big mess.
Then you have to find the flash light cause the light on the porch will not work.
Then you have to go back in and retrieve a plastic bag to remove the doo that your little dog made on the porch.
Then you see the grill cover on the ground and you have to fight to get the grill cover on.
Then you look up in the sky and remember rain.
Then you feed lex and you see your car is blocking somebodies elses car who leaves first.
So you move the car.
Then you are lucky enough to remember to leave the cat out of the cage and she didnt finish her food so you have to put that up.
Then you have to put water in the dogs bowl because it looks like rain and they cant sleep outside.
Then you have let the dogs in
Then you have to put the jammies on an all that other bed time stuff and put socks on cause your feet will get cold
Then you have to turn all the lights off and tv off
Then you have to take the lap top and put in the bed room cause your sister cant keep her grimmy hands off of it
Then you have to tinkle one last time.
Instead you could of been watching a whole episode of I dream of Jeanie on WGN retro night.
That is what a pain it is to go to bed
It is exhausting!

Friday Night Blog

Here I am on Friday night with nothing better to do. CSI New York is on the tele but not by my choice. That is the one I like the least. Looks like they are not going to be able to solve this crime. What a waste of an hour. They figured who killed him but not who he was.
I should watch the movie I rented Taken with Liam Nielson from the red box. I wanted Inkheart but they didnt have it. Pout!

I once talked of Mark Sanford. What a foolish foolish foolish governor. As everybody has been telling him. Keep your mouth shut.

Going to Atlanta

It didnt start off so well because the person who suggested aquarium all of the suddenly tried to get out of it. I got irritated. Ha I get irritated so easily.

So we pack up and go and boy I was in a mood and I stayed in that mood for hours and hours. I slept in the car and we get there and we are at the zoo. Which didnt make any sense because that is not where they said we were going.

I finally got out of the mood during the zoo. It isnt a large zoo but they had some unique animals as opposed to River banks zoo. They had the pandas and organgutan. They were fun.

We get to the hotel with bunches of extra time. So we grab a trolley and go to the subway and then got on a shuttle and went to Atlana Art Mall or something. We ate at the cheesecake Bistro. It reminded me of what Murl had said to try the cheasecake factory. We were not close.

I got oreo Cheesecake Yum Yum.

Then we went back the same way but in reverse.

I still wanted to go to the aquarium so we went and Barbara went on and on how wonderful it was. Guess who the person was who wanted to skip the aquarium was? Ha!

We decided to go to the Titanic exhibit and the coca cola museum. The titantic was ruined when I thought I lost the ticket to the coca cola. Some how barbara had it. Interesting to point out there were three clases on the titanic plus the crew. Each person coming into the exhibit got a card that described a person and at the end you find the person on the wall to see if you survive. All three of us survived.

Then we went to Johnny Rockets. They changed the menu. It just wasnt the same and they did not sing.

Next we went to the coca cola museum. It was alright. Not as cool as the aquarium. At the end of the tour you could taste all the coke products almost 300 types. They gave free bottles of coke. Ha free it cost to get in. I know your game dude.

I found cold case on. It was the first one. Interesting.

I am uploading pictures on photo bucket. There is a lot so I cant post right away. I tried to uploaded to facebook but it isnt working out so well.

Well thats about it for now.

Ps I am drinking that $15.00 coke now ha ha. Burp. Coca Cola says it has sparkle dust.
I got some fun strange things I spied in Atlanta. I will blog those laters. I want to watch the end of Cold Case. I most definately is the first one (burp, more sparkle dust there) It is so different from the ones I have ever watched.
