I'm Back

Hey everyone!! I know i haven't posted anything in a really long time, and I'm really sorry! School has sucked up my time, and with cross country and basketball i barely have enough time to do my homework! But now with it being winter break, i figured it would be a great time to write a post.
One thing that i was able to finally do was reorganize my craft area, I think it looks a lot nicer and it's now more organized, too.
We also got like 6 inches of snow last night, so here's a picture to explain why I'm inside and not out...

Nothing else has really gone on around here. It's nice to finally be on break and to not have to worry about homework every single day! I've got nothing else to say, so goodbye everyone! And have a nice break!

School started...

Hey everyone!! Sorry about not posting in 2 months!!! I've been super busy with school starting, cross country, and other stuff. I have some GREAT news!!! I made Varsity Cross Country!! :D :D :D :D!! I am sooo happy!! We have our first meet on Saturday, and i am super scared. School started about 2 weeks ago, and it's better then i expected. I thought going to a new (bigger) school would be hard and confusing, but it really isn't that bad!! I actually like it a lot better then my old school! I haven't been able to get any crafting done, because i've been so busy. But on my trip to montreal this summer i did finish my first sock!!!!

I am so proud of it!! It was easier then i thought and it went by really quickly!! I went the Midwest Fiber and Folk Art Fair in July, it was awesome!! I bought some sock yarn and died my own in a class! (Pictures coming soon.) I also just finished cleaning my closet, because it got REALLY disorganized over the summer. That's it for now!!

Spring-- er Summer Cleaning!

At the beginning of the summer my crafting mojo started to kick in again, so i went down to my craft table and found this.

Now I'm debating with myself. "Should I clean this? I mean it's not that bad." Then my mind started to kick in and said, " Actually, it is that bad." Then i said, "Yeah I am going to clean this." And i did!!! After a couple of hours i see some improvement!!!Almost Done!!!!!


Now i can craft with a peace of mind!!! The clutter was pretty bad now that i look at the pictures, so i'm so glad i cleaned it!!!

Have a Nice Day!!!

Summer 2009 Goals!

So over at Ravelry, a group called Teens Knit and Crochet had a great idea for us to list our goals for the summer of 2009!!! Here's the list that i came up with!

I like this idea! At the end of summer break, I can see if I achieved al of my goals.

  • Volenteer (maybe my library or local animal shelter)
  • Sew some sort of dress. i am working my way to that goal already! I just finished pj pants and now am working on an apron!
  • Earn some money. I am saving up to buy some nice yarn at my local yarn store. I have never knitted/crocheted w/ alpaca or silk or cashmere… ect.
  • Read. I love to read but sometimes my mind will wonder too much and therefore I can’t concentrate.
  • Garden. I would like to grow some herbs, vegtebals, and some flowers.
  • Exercise. I usually run in the summer, but I would like to do a little more like run and bike or run and lift weights.
  • Blog more. I have been a pretty bad blogger. I sometimes go 2 weeks without posting.
  • Eat Healthier. As the end of school comes closer, my eating habits tend to worsen. I sometimes end up eating cookies for breakfast.! (oops ;)
  • Less T.V. and computer. I realize that I spend most of my time on the weekends watching T.V. and playing on the computer. I hope to change that because I need to get out and breath in some fresh air every now and then.
  • Start a fair isle project. I have always been afraid of totally screwing it up, but now if it is summer, I will have time to take my time. :)
  • Keep up my basketball skills!
  • Journal for some of the summer.
I've already reached some of my goals, and it seems like I am on the road towards success! At the end of the summer, i am gonna read this list again and see how i did. I will post my results at the end of the summer.


I don't really know what the title should be, so i just put a heart. I feel bad, i am a horrible blogger!!! I haven't blogged in like 2 months!!! Since my last post, school has been let out, and summer has come in!!!!! It's already the middle of the summer!!!! I am doing this cross-country camp at my high school, which is a lot of fun. I also did a basketball camp, but that's over (which was tons of fun too!). The summer's been pretty fun, camps-wise, but other times, it can get really lonely. Last year, my "friends" talked about me behind my back, telling each other that I shouldn't knit or crochet, that I shouldn't wear things that i've made to school. They seemed embarrassed to be around me because of what i'd wear to school. I never really had clothes that "fit the bill". I have barely any clothes that i can call my own. I am usually wearing my sister's old clothes that aren't in style anymore. It bothers me that i know i don't have any friends because of what i look like on the outside.
About 12 days ago, my beloved science teacher passed way. He suffered a heart attack and died. It seems so surreal, right now. I feel like I'm almost in denial about it. Like i could still go visit him at school. I viewed him as an adult that was MEANT to be teaching. He could connect with his classes. Students wanted to do well, they looked forward to his class. He was a go-lucky-guy, he had a great sense of humor (especially with his fart machine at teacher meetings!) :D!!! He has kept a special place in all of our hearts, that'll never fade away. He was like a candle, using his life to light the way for others.

My knitting, crocheting, and sewing has been hibernating and i don't know why... I just don't feel as proud of it anymore. Maybe because everyone i know says i should stop because it's "not cool"... I don't know.

Happy 4th of July. I marched in the parade with my band, but the bells are really heavy, and my back started to hurt halfway through.

I am gonna post some pictures of my FOs from a really long time ago!!! Here they are!!!

some dishclothes
some crayon holders for my Spanish teacher (who has 2 little kids)

Some fingerless mitts!
A random baby bib that i made from some leftover cotton
