Gah! Busy, busy, busy!

I move in threeee months! THREE months! I'm scared to death. I have so many things that need to be done and paid off before I can go. So, I'm hoping to make some items and enter the local Craft Fair. Hopefully it'll make me a little moving money, because I seriously need it.

Work has been horrible. My endo is kicking in hard after leaning on tables all night. It hurts to walk at the end of shift from being so sore with cramps. I need to see my DR again, although I'm afraid she won't give me anything. She refuses to give me any kind of pain medication because "she doesn't want me to become addicted". Well, smarty, I can't get addicted if you don't even give me a chance! Sheesh! I need some insurance so I can see a real DR.
And my uniform pants cause major drying of the skin. It sucks. And I'm having NO LUCK what so ever trying to find some body lotion/body butter for REALLY super dry, rough skin for all over instead of just one body part. This lotion bar from Moon Valley Honey is adorable. This Body Butta sounds great, too. I'm going to need to buy some. Anyways.

As for crafting stuff, I have so mant WIPs that I've lost count. I'm working on something for my secret pal that's been sending me awesome packages (three for June alone! *SQUEEEE*) and I'm working on a couple of things for my SP. Hopefully they'll be done in time. I'm praying they are.

My mother took my daughter to a babyshower last week. I've been told twice now what a horrible child I have. It pisses me off to no end when people tell me how to raise my child. She's NOT horrible, she's 4! She has manners. She DOES get excited like ALL other children. Just mind your own business, all right? It'll make us all happier.

I still want a Spool Knitter. Or something equal. I just want those ropes! I have no luck making them in my crocheted way. It's annoying AND I have all these wonderful ideas that are just swimming in my head, looking for a bite to eat. I was thinking of getting it for myself, but I just don't have the spare money. (I'm splurging on my SP, though. I can't help it. I just tell my family that it HAS to be done. Hahaha.)

And have I ever mentioned my obsession with blank, decorative journals? I LOVE them. Here's a list of my current favs that I'm drooling over:

Journal- Lomper the Nightmare Snatcher
Beaded Handmade Journal, with handmade paper
Journal Vintage Cover
Woman Warrior Earth Goddess Piano Hinge Art Journal (How beautiful is this? I'm in wowdom!)
Carnival Blank Book
Red, Mini Leather Journal (I LOVE this!)
GREEK FAIRY TALES Signature Bound Journal (A favorite I must add to my collection soon!)
Leather Journal / Sketchbook - distressed brown - 320 pages
Althea, Leather Journal (*Dies and goes to journal heaven*)
Pink Cherry Blossom Journal
Floral Handbound Notebook
Hardcover Beaded Journal - Summer Orange
Small Lined Journal - Red (This would be perfect for my writing. Poetry, that is.)
Redish Blank Journal (This one would be great, too)
Hand-bound Goldfish Journal
Handbound Book - Golden Thread
Green Leaves, Sketchbook

There is ton more, but I'll spare you anymore links. Hehe.

I REALLY want to learn how to bind books so I can make my own journals. I really do. But, I don't know where to start. =( Guess it's library time. Even without binding books, I still want A Paper Trimmer / Cutter, because I can't cut a straight line to save my life.

I decided to add some book-binding books to my Amazon wishlist. Heh.
My Amazon.com Wish List

And, really, THIS handmade paper totally rocks my socks and every thing else, too.

Ok, enough about that.

A little note to those wanting to add me to their FL: I'm moving journals once SPLJ4 is over. =] dayweygunekwe


Again, sorry SP about my lack of posting. I hope this makes up for it a little. =(

I WANT this!

Spool Knitting Kit!

This would be great to use with my jewelry. Gah. I need it. Seriously.

Mmm. Yarn porn ahead!

Yarn Porn
I was in heaven today. A.k.a., The Local Yarn Store. Gah. It was amazing. ALL those fibers. All that yarn and wool. Mmm. I'm a huge sucker for beautifully dyed yarn. There isn't much to say, so I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

The New Zealand yarn (the mostly yellow one) is an exchange. The one I originally bought had parts where it had partially felted because of the recent humidity and general hotness. Sooo, they exchanged it with the closest colorway and then wound it into a center pull ball for me at no charge. She wanted to make sure the new one wasn't felted like the other. I love my LYS people. I really do.

Warning: May cause swooning!Collapse )

I'm currently working on two projects for my secret pal's final shipment. It's going to be great. I'm also working on a "medicine" bag. I don't like that name, so I've got to work on that.

I also picked up some beading supplies to make some jewelry. I'm excited. I can't wait to see how this secret project turns out.

Ha! I finally got the hang of my weaving sticks!

katojikuta was talking about the sticks she made, so I decided to grab some of my Bernat Chunkee and give it a try.. again. My first attempt was a horrible mess, but it worked this time! I was doing it way to tight last time.

Soooo, my pretties, this is my first finished weaving project. A bookmark (because I made it way to small to be anything else and not small enough to make a bracelet).

Peeeektures!Collapse )

Thanks again, katojikuta!!

Felted Bead Swap on Swap-Bot!

Gah. Work is horrible. I want to curl up in a corner and stay there forever.
Can I? Pretty please?

This is just a small update, because I really haven't had time to do anything but work and crochet. Even with the beautiful weather, I haven't gotten to go to the beach! Stupid job! Stupid having to be an adult and earn my own money!

Why can't I be wealthy so I wouldn't have to work?

Jul. 6th, 2007


I got three different packages! Two today and one the other day! =]

My secret pal totally rocks!
Peek under here to see why! (Warning: EXTREMELY image heavy! Sorry Dial-up!Collapse )

Thanks again, Secret Knitting Pal!
(And, btw, I'll take ALL that handspun you've got. I LOVE it.)

Note to self: Find Burly Spun yarn for handbags for etsy!

Nothing big.

Is going on in my life.
I work. I come home. I sleep. I crochet.

I did, however, get a comission to make a large cloak.
I'm excited! Weee!

And, well, I still want some Weaving Sticks.
