- Work on test knit for Stefanie Japel
- Write totally entertaining blog posts complete with pictures
- Sew lots and lots of things for my shop to help pay some bills
- Play some more with metal stamping set
- Walk dogs at the harbor on this gorgeous day
- Vacuum my room and do laundry
- Get my butt up to Newport for a weight check-in and prescription refill
And here's what I've actually done.
- Had an english muffin, a banana, and tea for breakfast
- Stamped "Wonderfully Awkward" on strips of metal
- Scanned said metal strips into my computer to try out a new blog header (not quite *me*, I decided)
- Waited on hold for 40 minutes with the OC Court system to try and pay my registration fix-it ticket.
Hmm...so what will I do with the three hours or so until I have to go to work? I really should finish that dog bed I started like, a month ago. It's going to be super cute, just you wait! I'm way behind on the test knit, but my poor dogs have been so cooped up and stir-crazy lately. Okay, that kind of narrows it down. Alright, alright. I'll take them for a nice two hour walk at the harbor, then use the last hour or so before work to knit. No sewing, dammit, but that's what I get for being a no good lazy procrastinator.
I've been feeling the need to read inspiring self-help quotes and stuff lately, and read an awesome article the other day that I want to print out and put in my paper journal (that I haven't written in for a long time....go figure) I wanted to share it with you all, in case you need a little "yay me" boost too.
Tiny Buddha: 4 Simple Steps to Freedom
On twitter this morning, a certain knitter I love and admire asked for a little pat on the back. This made me love her even more. I wrote something encouraging (and completely true) and shared the article link with her. We all need to ask for some support and encouragement sometimes, especially on days when we don't feel so much like Wonder Woman. That's one of the reasons I love comments on my blog here - it lets me know someone's actually reading, and actually cares, even if I'm "writing for myself". How ego-centric am I?! Ah well, we are what we are. Everyone needs positive reinforcement sometimes, right?
Crafting stuff! (On a craft blog? NO!)
It was my dear friend Kathy's daughter's 2nd birthday this past weekend, so I made this for Sophie:
It's a super duper cute tutorial/pattern from 2 Little Hooligans, click the link if you want to make one too! The wings and around the eyes looks black, but it's actually a nice navy blue fleece. It was really hard to get a decent picture. I didn't download the pattern, because I wanted to make it a bit bigger than I thought it would be. I eyeballed it, so he's a bit wonky. But the important thing is Sophie loved him. Kathy left me a message on my facebook this morning telling me that Sophie slept with him last night and wouldn't put him down when she got up. That totally made my entire day!
Okey dokey. Off to the harbor with me and the pooches. Here I go. Watch me move.....quick like ninja. *sigh* Why is momentum so difficult?
Tomorrow there will be a surprise for you all (hint: it involves the boogie earbuds and a giveaway!), so keep your eyes peeled! (eww..why has my family always used that phrase?)
