Out with the old, in with the new

I thought it was about time for a bit of a change.

I really love the look of blogs that have white backgrounds, but when I try to use white as a background it just never looks right. I always end up with the darker colors. Go figure.

So tell me, what do you think?

It's that time again

I am almost finished with my current yarny project, so you know what that means. That's right, it means it's time to start a new one. That seems to be my M.O. Start a project, get close to finishing (as in only a few rows left to go). Start a new project. Rinse and repeat.

This is the pattern I will use.

And this is the yarn.


And I shall call him {Ripple}. Brownie {Ripple}.

feel better [a card]

Last month, a friend of mine managed to injure herself quite a bit. I wanted to send her something, so I made a simple little card to send her way. She should have it by now, so that means I get to share.

In the midst of my card making process, I have discovered (and become addicted to) Liquid Pearls. Have you used these? Am I the last person to jump on the Liquid Pearls bandwagon? On a whim, I grabbed the last 3 colors that I saw on the shelf at the local scrapbook store and now I am hooked. I had never used them before but now I feel the need to own every color.

Supplies used:
Liquid pearls (platinum pearl)
Colorbox chalk (burnt sienna)
My minds eye (fresh linens: kitchen curtains)
Chatterbox (greenhouse scarlet paisley)
Making Memories rub-ons (destination)
Prima flower

How I spent my evening

ARGHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Viruses suck!

In fact, I am still trying to make sure everything is working okay. Every single file and program under my user name is hidden. I have a lot of files I need to go through and edit. Luckily, it didn't seem to touch the husband's files. Thank goodness!

more circles

....and now for the superhero section of the blanket.

Why yes, the husband did choose these colors. Why do you ask?

Yarny things

My poor neglected Something Scrumptious blanket. It has been so long since I worked on it. Actually, it has been awhile since I have worked on any crochet or knitting project. It has just been way too hot to work on anything yarn related. Evening temps inside my house average about 82 degrees and it is usually only down to 80 by the time I drag myself to bed. I cannot wait until cooler weather arrives. Until then, you get a photo from last year. So far this is my favorite color combo when it comes to these circles.
