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!
