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

Fabulous Fo's

Well, I finished a couple Fo's since my last posting, so I thought I might share them with you!!   First off, I finished this crocheted clutch.  I saw the pattern somewhere on Ravelry.  Here's the link to my projects if you are interested in trying it out.  It was really fun, and a great way to use up some leftover yarn!
I crocheted this star dishcloth out of this yarn and it was a gift (Easter) for my sister who's in college! 
I knitted this Ribbed Laced Bolero for myself, and It actually turned out really well!!  The color goes with just about everything and it's fun to show off :D! (Like most things!) 

Finally, I made this dishcloth as a mothers day present while I was sick.  My mom loved it!! She said "It was too pretty to use." She agreed to use it as a hot pad :).  It's just some repeating little bears!!  
I also got a new camera for my birthday, finally!!!!  It has 12.1 mega pixels and is really good at focusing on detail.  It's this camera in the pretty blue color from Canon.

I am excited that school is almost over, I am soooo in the need for a break!! My teachers just pile on the homework and projects!!! My sister came home from college for the weekend, which was exciting, but she spent most of her time studying for finals.

I am still alive

Sorry about kinda falling off the face of the earth, Easter came around and then my birthday, and BIG projects in school, and then I was sick. I did get some crafting done, but I'll post that in a different post.
I am proud to say that I entered track and my mile was 6:43!! That's my personal best!
I am thinking about changing the colors a little bit, what do you think? I am tosing around the idea of like a bright summer, spring color combo.

Feeling a little Pessimistic

Well, today I am feeling a little pessimistic. So I decided to write some positive things that happened in my day today.
  1. Spring Break is over, and school has started up again. That means I have something productive to do. (besides crafting in front of the computer)
  2. I got to show off my new haircut to everyone (sorry, no pic, mom's rule)
  3. I got to show off my new knitted shrug (that I made) and my new beret ( I also made, pics comming soon).
  4. I finally had someone to talk to. (Everyone went away to mexico ect.)
  5. Lastly, my friend got me a scarf from London when she went there last week (YAY!!)

I should be studying for my 56 WORD VOCAB TEST (WITH SPELLING) for Spanish. (I can't believe my teacher expects us to memorize 56 words and their spelling for tomarrow! I don't even know what's on the test. I know I have to memorize the 56 vocab words, but what about the 20 or so phrases? Screw that, I am just gonna study the vocab words, what can she expect from us anyways? On the bright side, I was able to get a lot crafting done over break, I probably knitted and crocheted like 3 miles of yarn over Spring break. (Pictures next time, I am too, lazy and tired to take any right now.). Of coarse, it has to snow like 10 inches this morning!!! For god's sake, it's April, the snowy weather is over!!! Please, at least grant us with a snow day, if it's gonna snow!!! I'll post some pictures of my FOs in the next couple of days.

Guinea Pig Adventures!!

Did I ever tell you I have a guinea pig? Well I do and her name is Nutmeg. Yesturday Spring had finally arived and we had a little adventure outside. I took many pictures!!!

She's like "what ya lookin at?" :)

She's sniffing our magnolia tree. She really likes the shade, as you can tell be this next picture.

She was acting crazy when I took this picture!! She was trying to eat something..... I think.

Running around, enjoying the fresh air, eating the grass.

After I put her back in her cage I ate some lunch, and went back down to make sure she had enough to eat. When I looked in her little housey, she was fast asleep!! I mean ASLEEP! She didn't even wake up when I accidently bumped the cage! I guess this adventure was a lot of fun and energy-consuming!!! I got to go and start my homework!!!! Till next time...

Update!! :)

Hey everybody!! I'm back! I was sick the 10, 11, and 12. I had some sort of Flu/cold thing, basically I was sleeping bed the whole time. When I wasn't sleeping, I was crafting or eating :). I Haven't blogged in like forever because I was catching up on make-up work. I finally handed in everything on Friday! Here are some of the crafting creations I have made since I last posted!!

If you can't tell, this is a paw print dishcloth I made! I used Sugar 'n Cream yarn. It turned out very nice, and the yarn worked well in my hands! The color, I believe, is soft ecru. I really like that color becuase it isn't so blinding as regular white, and if I do use this, I won't be able to tell if it is dirty or not! It'll look brand new each time! ;)

This is a sewing machine dishcloth. All of my these patterns I use, I get of off Ravelry. This dishcloth is made from the same yarn and is a light purple color. This is probably my favorite of them all because it ties in my two faverite crafts! Yarn and needle crafting!!
My last dishcloth is of a dog house and is made, again, from Sugar 'n Cream yarn. I had a bunch in my stash and wanted to use it up. The color is called Hot blue. (How creative... not :) This one took me the longest for some reason....
I also finished my mom's crocheted market bag!! It was taking forever, but I finally got er done!! I ran out of cotton, so I had to use bits and pieces from my stash. I still like the way it turned out though!! My mom loves it too! I will get a picture of it next time my mom goes to the groceruy store.
One last point before i sign off. I am so happy February is basically over!! I need a break from the snow! I am ready to see the blooming buds on crabapple trees!! It rained like crazy these past two days!! I am so happy!!
O!!! Wait!! One more thing! I got some Elton John, Billy Joel Tickets!!!! I AM SO HAPPY!!!! I can NOT wait to go!!!!

The color purple. It is the juice of my favorite berry, the sparkle in my ring, and the color of my favorite yarn. Purple has this almost deep soothing feeling to it. It seems to lure me in wherever I am. I also love to color and crochet with it!

Purple seems to calm me down, it has this Serene quality to it.

Although this flower is very bright, I can't help but be calm while looking at it.

I like the color purple, although it is not my favorite color, I feel relaxed (most of the time) while around it. Onto my latest FOs, I finished 3 hats, 2 baby bibs, and some hand warmers. The best part is, that all of the projects are made from yarn that was in my stash!!

First, My hand warmers, very simple, I finished them in under 3 hours.

This hat I actually finished the same day I finished my had warmers. Both took under 1 night to finish.

This red hat ended up being a little big because i tried it with a bigger hook. It still like it though and have worn it out in public a few times.

This hat I made for a girl at school that asked me to make her one. She saw me wearing mine and went ballistic!!! So, I decided to make her one. All three of these hats are made from the same pattern.

Finally, I made this baby bib, just for the heck of it. I had some extra cotton yarn and didn't know what to do with it, so I made this. I thought the original was a little boring, so I added a little hand embroidered dog to it.

I have been crocheting up a storm here!! That's all I have made so far, I'll see ya'll next time!!

Check In

Sorry about not blogging in a while, I have been super busy with school. Our 2nd quarter just ended and I had all of these tests and junk to do. On top of that I have standarized testing in a little bit so we have been doing extended responses ect. I have decided to do this weekly posting thing, where I post about a different color each week. I think it will go over well. I am going to start off next week with the color purple. I have much to do, so i will post later,

Happy New Year to all!! My New Year Resolutions include:
1. Eating Healthier (which includes eating out less)
2. Exerciseing more
3. Make some more friends
4. Use up some of my statsh of yarn!!
5. Be much nicer to my siblings. I can be pretty mean to them sometimes, and they deserve better.
6. Organize myself. My room is a pigsty. Clothes, papers, wrappers, and books are everywhere
7. Finally show the world who I really am, friendly, kind, nice, and sweet. ( I am not trying to brag, trust me)

I will probably add more to the list tomarro, when I can think straight!! Whishing everyone one a Happy New Year full of happy memories.
