(spray watercolor on paper leaves)
My husband has gone to Romania for a week and he took my camera!!
Mattie misses him the most, she has cried EVERY day since he has been gone-and I am just trying to keep with the routine of our day and give them a little extra lovin.
I spent the morning shopping on Etsy and bought a whole new batch of yarn to make some more hats. (This week I am going to try listing some Pixie style hats)
I love reading blogs-I love getting a little glimpse into the lives of complete strangers.
This week I will post some of the new blogs I've been inspired by.
Until then, wish me luck-2 days until the old man comes home.

Browns Oakridge Zoo is amazing!!!
If you live in Illinois and want to visit exotic animals and even be able to hold a baby cub-then you need to check this place out!!!!
Not your typical zoo by any stretch of the imagination-it's a family owned business zoo that you won't want to miss.
lions and tigers and bears(yes bears) oh my!!!

I bought a huge bag of vintage wool from the Salvation Army this summer(brown &green).
I am going to keep track of how many pairs of socks I can make out of this wool.
All for $2.50 (gotta love 1/2 price day)
have you heard of the blanket statement? sort of the same idea, but I'm just going to make socks.
(not as exciting as her projects)

I did it!!! I was approved as a liscensed knitter for little turtle knits.
I have always dreamed of working as a liscensed knitter and now I finally get the chance.
I wanted to give my Etsy shop more of a professional look now that I have some hats to sell, so my friend Azuree agreed to take some photos for me.
I asked a few of my friends if I could snag their children for the shoot and Azuree ended up taking some amazingly cute pictures.
I will let you know when my shop is updated.

I am finally organizing my yarn and trying to find a space to store it all.
(I can't throw any of it away-I'm too cheap).
Anyways, I came across this rough gray wool that I love!!!
It's too itchy for much of anything but I love the look of it.
I grabbed an old dishcloth pattern that I have always loved and I am going to just keep repeating this pattern until I run out of yarn.
I am thinking of using it somewhere in my home-maybe I'll drape it across my old trunk.
Also, keep your fingers crossed-I am sending in samples of my work to become a liscensed knitter for a small stay at home mom business.
WISH ME LUCK

I don't know why, but I was thinking of these cereals.
Is it true that Count Chocula is the only one sold year round?
I was reading where someone said the others only come out in October.
Gosh, you know it's time to go to bed when you are watching cereal commercials on youtube.
(Am I the only one to never have heard of Fruit Brute?)
just found this site!!! FUNNY

When Pearl was younger, I remember my mom crocheting her a little Easter basket-
so here I am trying to keep up with the tradition - making them for my nieces, my girls, and my friend's kids.
Trying to come down from the sugar high.......
