How About That!

Hi everybody! Guess what. I just found out that I was nominated and I am finalist for the category of Best Knitting/Craft Blog for the BoB Weblog Awards 2004. Well Holy Macarena! I surely never expected that. Thanks so much to whoever nominated me!! That put a big ole smile on my face :)

I finally got the buttons on the Origami Bag. I found the at Jo Ann Fabrics and Crafts earlier today. This thing has been just laying around forever without a button. It was one of those projects that I just wanted to knit even though I would never use it. It is going to go live with Rob's Aunt Connie. His sister Karyl saw the pattern and said, "Oh wow this is something Connie would like." I said, "Oh yeah? Well I already made it, and she can have it."  How cool is that.

Now you know I didn't just go in Jo Ann's and come out with only a couple of buttons. I also got some jade beads, sterling silver clasps, head pins, bell caps, and a ball of black fun fur. All of the jewelry making stuff was 40% off and I used a 40% off coupon for the yarn. Yippee!

I forgot to show you something that was Christmas related. I was on the phone with my mom one night after she had been putting up Christmas decorations in her yard. She was just a little freaked out over the directions for her Santa Clause. When she told me about it, I immediately told her to scan them and email them to me. Look for yourself! It is unbelievable. Is that not freaky?! Haha! Now is that a typo or someone playing a practical joke? My mom got so freaked out by it that she threw the directions in the trash can. I sure hope she remembers how to reassemble Satan oops I mean Santa again next year. Yikes!

On a much more serious note, if you would like to make a donation to help the millions of victims of the tsunami, compiled a list of organizations you can donate to. I found this link on Nanette's blog. Thanks Nanette! It sucks majorly that I even need to bring this up, but here it goes. Before you make a donation for a tragedy such as this, you want to make sure that it is a legitimate organization. Unfortunately, some evil people (I could think of a better term, but I'm trying to keep it clean) like to take advantage of a situation like this one and make money off of people. I imagine each organization on that list has been researched. However when in doubt, you can just donate to the Red Cross. You know that they are legitimate.
