Finished This One

This is the cover I crocheted for my Instax camera.
It has a bit of bump on the left side since I wan't following a pattern.
And I was too lazt to go back to correct the mistake.
I had taken the pouch apart a few times already.
I had even made it too big!
So there it is :)

It was Chilly!

It was raining and chilly on Sunday.
I figured it would be a good idea to fire up the oven.
I wanted easy to prep yet delicious.
This is what I came up with.
I opened a tube of crescent rolls and folded chocolate chips in as I rolled the dough up.

So simple and yummy!
Next time I think I'll sprinkle cinnamon on the dough.  :)

Yesterday was the First Day of Spring?


I forgot yesterday was the First Day of Spring!
Migraines have been draining me.
I planned on pictures of my nearly finished vests but it rained this weekend and when the sun did come out I couldn't find any motivation.
I did take one vest apart and made a case for my Instax mini.
Pictures to come soon.
I need to sew buttons on and I'm all done.
Now I'm just trying to figure out what to make with the left over yarn.

Finding Inspiration


 This week there are lots of ideas floating around.
Some to save for later, some that aren't so great.
So I decided to write as many ideas down as possible.
And search for new inspiration as well.
I have quite a nice pile of clippings.
Now I just have to sort them out. :)

What a Busy Weekend

So Friday this guy turned 4 years old!
My Mom and I took him for lunch at Islands.
He was so funny, when we walked in he told the hostess "It's my birthday!"
Later our waitress brought out a sundae for him and we sang Happy Birthday.
As we walked out of the restaurant he asked, "Is my birthday over?' Silly guy!

I also baked a marble cake for him later in the evening.
That way all of us sisters and brother could sing Happy Birthday to him!
His excitement was too cute!
Now that he realizes there is cake involved with birthdays, he is obsessed!

Sunday I attended a cousin's wedding but the time change almost kept me home.
I was excited to take this picture, I thought outfit post!
But I didn't take enough pictures and looking at this picture I look posed and stiff.
Why did I hold my arms away from my body?
I am totally loving the dress and tights combo though.
I need more dresses! haha

Trying to Organize


 This is my messy make-up/ junk drawer.
Lots of make-up and jewelry still in boxes.
Bracelets, batteries, and buttons floating around.
Candle lighters, Emergen-C, Ipods, ear phones.
I took most everything out of their boxes.
I'm trying to figure out the best way to store my necklaces that are still in the drawer.
I want to be able to see them, so that I use them.
Should I hang them on the framed cork board?
So this is my more organized mess.
Not great but really a lot better.
All the make-up is now in zippered pouches.
Now I can see everything in there!

Any helpful tips?

Happy Birthday Lil Sis!

Last Tuesday my sister turned 14!
Time sure is flying by. 
My Mom and I took them to Islands to celebrate her birthday!
 There's the other sister trying to force a kiss on our younger brother.
We had a pretty good time. Lots of laughs and of course good food!
The birthday girl just before she enjoyed her Kona pie.
And this Friday the littlest brother turns 4!

Remember that crochet project I shared last week?
Well, I finished it. Which normally is awesome but the vest was a bit of a fail.
Why? Too short! Ugh.
So now I'm debating if I should go back and make it longer or scrap it.

Was I Just Bullied?

This is how I was feeling.

Monday night my sister and friends "C' and "S" wanted to have a little girl time. They had tried calling me but my phone was in a weird pocket that got no reception, so my sister called the house phone to invite me over. I thought it would be good to get out, but honestly did not feel like leaving the house (too cold out, the house was quiet, didn't feel chatty) so I said "No, thanks. Besides I still have laundry to fold and put away." My sister said, "okay" and told S what I said. I could hear S in the background say "you're coming over!" I thought to myself  'We'll see about that'. I might have even said aloud. Because hearing that really truely bothered me. I stated that I didn't want to go but there was no consideration for my decision.
When the laundry was all done I decided to settle down with a little TV and my crochet. THe phone rang while I was in the middle of  some good crocheting, so I ignored it. My phone rang again almost as soon as I put the crochet down. It was my cousin V calling from Seattle. When this girl calls I drop everything to talk to her! So we were talking and twice there was the beep of call waiting. I figured once I was done talking to V,  I would call S and just let her know that I  didn't feel like hanging out and talking. When I was done talking to V, my phone let me know that there were two voicemails awaitng me. The first vm was angry in tone about how they didn't appreciate being ignored. Understandable, I might feel the same. The second vm was angry stil and cursing the answering service.
I deleted them after hearing them because now I was feeling hurt.
When S doesn't want to hang out I don't harass her about it.

I could let this fester inside, so I decided to write/type it out.
Thanks for reading.
