Sorry for the silence

So sorry about the long silence but November turned out to be very busy. We had a couple of dog fight issues with Aristotle. We drove to Texas for Thanksgiving and spent a week visiting with family and friends. (and totally realizing that we miss living there and really want to go back) We no sooner got home and I fell ill with what turned out to be bronchitis but felt like I was on my death bed.

But finally things are back to normal. The house is decorated and ready for Christmas and I'm in Christmas knitting mode.

I tried to finish as much as possible to take with me to Texas so save on shipping costs. All of the purchased gifts made the trip with us but only one handknit was ready to go in time. I made a pair of toeless socks for my mother.

She and my sister are easy to make socks for because we all have the same size foot. (which is why I'm modeling these socks) I really think mom is going to love these because she always says she breathes through her feet and is always cutting the toes off her socks.

I'm currently working on a pair of socks for my sister which will hopefully be done tonight or tomorrow. I'll have pictures of those as soon as they are done.

I've got a couple more posts to make today and tomorrow so be on the lookout.

Some Papercrafting updates

I have been really bad about posting on a regular basis lately and I promise that will be one of my New Year's Resolutions! I must be a better blogger.

I really don't have all that much in the way of an update to the happenings of life, it's been mostly dull. I've been playing a lot of World of Warcraft lately. The only excitement around was last Friday when Aristotle got in a fight with one of his doggy friends. Nobody really knows what happened and the other dog-mommy insists that it just happens sometimes and we shouldn't worry. We still feel bad and insist on paying half of her vet bills.

So, there you have it, that's really the only exciting thing that has happened since the last time I posted. Let's get on to some papercrafting news.

If you remember my last post I mentioned that we went to a wedding in Sedona. It was a really lovely wedding of a dear knitting friend. I promised you I would post a picture of the gift I made for them, and I certainly don't want to disappoint! Without further ado, here is the set of Thank You cards and box I made.

She had a totally DIY wedding and it was beautiful. I just wanted to make sure that after it was all done that she could relax. So, I used her invitations as a starting point in figuring out a color scheme and set out to make the Thank You cards. In the end, I think it turned out great, the box fit all 40 cards and envelopes perfectly. The best part....she loved them! (and I did save her time just like I had hoped since she didn't have to make them herself)

In other news, my sister's birthday was November 7th. Since I'm no there to take her out to give her a gift, I sent along this card/gift card holder.

That's pretty much all I have for now...but get ready as there are some big plans for some virtual classes coming to my blog soon.

1st Annual Pumpkin Carving

First let me say I am sorry that there hasn't been much posting going on around here lately, but I've been a little distracted. Not that it's all that good of a reason but the hubby and I have started playing World of Warcraft again. The last week hubby was off for vacation and since we couldn't afford to go anywhere we kind of holed up at home and played a lot of WoW.

Last weekend, to kick off vacation we initiated a new tradition in our household. Growing up my family never carved pumpkins and it just sounded like so much fun that we decided to start a new tradition. So while out shopping I found the perfect little pumpkin and this is what we came up with.....

Pre-carving drawing:

cleaning out the pumpkin:

(obviously NOT my favorite part and never again to be my job)

And finally, the end result:

And, the biggest reason I haven't been around this past week...the reason for the vacation...

We celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary on Wednesday. And our 4th year together on Thursday.


I promise not to be gone so long again. Next time I'll tell you about our trip to Sedona for a friend's wedding!
