I heart Bamboo

22 Dec

Progress! Although I have still not wrapped a single thing yet 😛 I have dont some serious crocheting! I needed a little break from E’s jacket so I started working on a blanket I promised for one of my best friends T. I loooove the colors she picked out!!

This is going to be the softest blanket I have EVER felt! I love this yarn. It’s by Caron but it’s called Naturally Spa (A silky soft bamboo blend). B and I went to Key West for our honeymoon. This was the view outside of our balcony:

GORGEOUS! But there was this store there that sold everything made out of bamboo. Shirts, sheets, towels, rugs, you name it – made out of bamboo!! It was so soft, so silky, so cool but comfortable, so light but you’d never want to take it off! Now that I have found this yarn that is just that amazing, I highly doubt I will ever go back to any other kind of yarn!!! EVER!!

Then I did a little more work on E’s jacket. Making a hood isn’t as easy as I thought and it might not look like anything to you but a couple more rows and when I connect it at the top it’ll actually look like a hood instead of flaps 😛

Obviously all these little annoying loose ends are going to disappear but hopefully you can see the picture 😉

Tomorrow I might not be posting much just because I HAVE to get my wrapping done and I am going to make another round of candy & cookies! YUMM.

Love Always,

It’s only 9:00!

22 Dec

It’s only 9:00 and I am done with all my chores!! I woke up this morning at 5:00 a.m. and I couldn’t go back to sleep. I can’t even remember the last time I woke up this early and not only was I awake but I was seriously energetic! I had so many cool crafty ideas floating through my head that I thought, maybe if I write them down I’ll go back to sleep. Oh I made lists, and than I realized that I was even more awake and excited to get the day started then before hand! So at 6:00 I hopped out of bed, took a shower, cleaned my room, made my bed, cleaned off my desk (it was a huge mess), cleaned the living room, hallway, kitchen, did the leftover dishes from last night, cleaned out and reloaded the dishwasher, crocheted a little, ate some breakfast, and THEN at 8:15 E finally woke up! I fed her breakfast and here I am, with all my cores done, E playing, and the only thing left on my list that I really need to get done is wrap presents! HOLY COW! I should do this every morning!

I am sure when it comes down to E’s nap time I will be joining her 😉 but right now I am still pumped and ready to go! Today my mom is spending part of the day with me, she is going to help me learn how to crochet a different way, and help me figure out how to make all my crafty ideas come true! She said she didn’t know where I came from because she doesn’t have a crafty bone in her body but I agree to disagree there. She is the one that taught me how to cross stitch, crochet, color, and bought me all the crafty things I could desire when I was a kid. As much as she thinks that she doesn’t have the craftiness in her, I swear she does!!! My addiction to rearranging furniture and having a nack for interior design – yeah that come from her too. Silly mom!

Well what am I doing sitting here chatting away! It’s time to get crafty!!!

Love Always,

J
