Just a Little Note - Day 23-26

Hello all,
I am just writing to let all you Blogtoberfest folks know that I will be out of town for the next 3 days! My family is taking a vacation up to Door County until Wednesday night! WOO!!! Good timing too. Lots of stress, so it is much needed. 
I don't know that I will have access to a computer while I am there, so that is why I am just doing this one post to try and cover them all. ;) Hehe! 
But I will be back on Wednesday!
See you soon! :)

Organization! - Day 22

Ahh, I just love yarn so much. :) It just makes me happy to come home from shopping with like 2 bags full of YARN! Haha! But just where to put it all? Well, I think it was about 6 months ago, I put up these cubes in my room to ORGANIZE my collection! Oh my word, it is amazing! I can actually find what I need now. Ha! Someday I might have an entire room just designated for my knitting or craft items. Lord knows I would probably fill it. ;)
Here's a picture of what it looked like before. Just everything in a bucket or on the floor spilling out everywhere. Very disorganized. :P
And NOW it is still a little messy, but at least it looks a little nicer. I can't imagine what it would look like if I didn't have the cubes. Ha! Quite a disaster if you ask me. ;)

 Anyways, hope you have a wonderful rest of your Saturday night. I get to go to work. Ah well, life happens

Friday Afternoon Crafts - Day 21

Today while babysitting, me and Austin made PUMPKINS!
 I can not take credit for this incredibly artistic photo. Austin took control of my camera and took this. :) Do I see a photographer in the making?
 We made Fall/Halloween link garlands to put on the doorways. Always a fun project!
Well, I hope you have a wonderful Friday night! :)

Olivia Out and About - Day 20

Teona brought baby girl to Savannah's birthday party last night! :) I just love the outfit that she is wearing! SO CUTE! 
 Hehe, looking all around! She's probably like "Hm, I have never seen this place before. Where am I?". :) At one point when she was a little fussy, Savannah brought her over to the fish tank and that helped to quiet her down a little, for a while at least. Haha!
 It was so cute when she was laying on the couch, cuz her feet and legs were all curled up real close to her. :) I should have gotten a picture of it, cuz it was super duper cutie pie-ness. ;) Haha!

Well, wow is it already Thursday? Geez... HA! Have a wonderful Thursday night, then! :)

Party Party Party - Day 19

Tonight was Savannah's birthday party! She was super happy when I brought her cake out. :) I am seriously in love with this cake tho! I am so happy that it turned out the way it did! :) And it was quite tasty too, other than the fact that if you ate the black frosting it would turn your mouth black. HA! Skye learned that all by herself. ;)
Presents!!! :) It's not a birthday party unless there are presents

Anyways, I am kind of tired after all that hard core partying. HA! ;) Have a great rest of your night!

Cows Go Moo! - Day 18

Happy 20th Birthday, Savannah! :)

Yup, today is Savannah's birthday... so I made her a CAKE! 
In case you don't already know, Savannah LOVES cows! So what better cake to make for her than a COW PRINT CAKE!!! :D I can not take credit for the idea. Skye La Grew thought it would be fun so I tried it!
I knew it would turn out really cute as soon as I sketched the spots on! Tomorrow night we will be having a little get-together to hang out, eat cake, and celebrate Savannah being the oldest of our group. ;)
But oh my WORD! It was so hard trying to get the frosting to turn black... I pretty much had to use the ENTIRE little jar of black food coloring... it was getting pretty ridiculous... You can't have GREEN spots on a cow... NO! 
But, in the end, it turned out AMAZING and I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow night! :) 

Have a wonderful night!

My New Hat! - Day 17

So this is the new hat that I bought up in Sister Bay! Brianna and I walked up the craft area and found this AWESOME display of hats! It took me a while to decide which one I wanted. And they were very reasonably priced too, and I got mine for a deal! :) 
This hat is really awesome because it has a hole in the top (so it's kind of like a headband actually) so I can wear it when I have ponytails in! That's really cool because I love wearing hats and I have my hair in a pony tail alot. :D
This little beaded design is what sold me on this hat. :) Isn't it so pretty and simple? I can't tell what it is tho. I think it's flowers and some leaves... that is what I have come up with. Haha! Anyway, it just kind of MAKES the hat!
So yeah, that was my Sister Bay Fall Festival souvenir! :)
Have a wonderful Monday night!

Sister Bay Fall Festival - Day 16

Hello all!
So it is Sunday night, and we got home from the Sister Bay Fall Festival! We all had a GREAT time selling gyros, spanikopita, souflakia, baklava, russian torte, and pitzels! Wow... not sure about the spelling on some of those... Haha! But yeah, this year the weather was super nice but it was a little bit windy on Saturday. It's better than the horrible weather that was predicted, though! HOORAY! I am a little bummed that no one has gotten any pictures up yet. But as soon as someone does I will prolly post a few! So yeah, all in all, it was an amazing time and I already can't wait until next year! :)
One downside though, I wasn't able to watch the Packers beat up on the Rams. :( Ah well. We had a radio at our booth so we were all listening to it! I didn't know they were playing in the throwback jerseys. I LOVE THESE JERSEYS! They are so cool :) Anyways, now the Packers are the ONLY 6-0 team in the league (now that the Lions lost to the 49ers). YAY!!! So exciting! :)

Well I hope you have a GREAT rest of your Sunday night! I might just take a nap... after I eat some pizza... :)

Hm... Spinach and Cheese? - Day 15

So, I am up in Sister Bay right now, selling gyros and SPANIKOPITA! Spanikopita is a spinach and cheese pie (made with filo dough). The smell is absolutely revolting... HAHA! But me and mom volunteered to make a couple pans for the fundraiser
 We have to layer lots and lots of the thin papery filo dough and two layers of the spinach/cheese mixture. The filo dough is yummy, but not with the spinach. Haha!
 Yuuum... makes you want to eat it right? :P Haha! To people who like it, it is actually very good. Mom likes it alot, and I still have yet to figure out why. ;)
Layers and layers and layers of filo dough stuck together with lots and lots and lots of butter! 
All finished and ready to go in the oven! We had some extra filo dough, so we made this little pan of cinnamon sugar buttered filo dough! When it came out of the oven, it was all crispy and yummy! I could eat that again :)
All baked and ready to be taken and sold in Sister Bay! Woot Woot!

Hope you have a wonderful Saturday!

Does that Qualify? - Day 14

Hm, does reading a book in a diaper qualify as reading in the bathroom? HAHA!
Austin just woke up from his nap and the first thing he does is sit and read some books. :)
Oh darn, caught in the act of picture taking. Ha! Naaah, he doesn't mind getting his picture taken.
After he felt he was done reading, he got dressed and pulled out his cars game! I taught him how to play tiddly winks! :D He was having a blast shooting those little pieces everywhere
So, even tho it wasn't nice enough to go outside, we still managed to have a little bit of fun! :)
Now, time to go up to Sister Bay for the Fall Festival fundraiser! Every year, my church goes up there and sells gyros and other things! It's always great fun! :)
Have a GREAT Friday!

Look Familiar? - Day 13 (1/2)

Oops, I was so busy yesterday that I forgot to do my Blogtoberfest post. Ha! Well, here it is!

Here is another one of those Haughty Hats! I really like the yarn that I used for this one, the color is beautiful and it was super nice to work with! I don't remember exactly what kind it was... :P I need to start writing them down. Haha! But yeah, this will make a nice Christmas gift, yes? :)
I couldn't figure out if the buckle is blue or black... it kinda looks like both. Haha! 

Well, it's time to go babysitting! Today's post will come later! :)

Oh, Monday Mon- ... Wait, It's Tuesday! - Day 11

Aaand I finished that little hat I was working with on Sunday! I am just really happy that I had enough yarn to finish it. I was a little worried at the end, because it was becoming rather slim. But, it ended up being PERFECT! :)
 I absolutely LOVE the green flecks with the brown. This yarn is probably one of my favorites from all that I have worked with! I believe it is just Lion Brand either Bulky or Super Bulky... Can't remember. Anyways, I LOVE IT!
For some reason today feels like it should be Monday... But I am definitely happy that it is actually Tuesday! :) Haha! My days are all sorts of mixed up this week. Well, better than it being Tuesday and feeling like Monday... I hate that... :P

Anyways, hope you have a wonderful TUESDAY night! :)

What's On Your Needles? - Day 9

What's On Your Knitting Needles Today?
 Today, I have another one of my No Pattern hats! But instead of being for a 10 year old, this one is for my cousin who will be 6 in January! Goodness, I almost freaked myself out for a second because I thought he was going to be 7. Haha! But no, he will be 6.
 I will probably end up finishing it tonight while I watch the Packer game! They play the Falcons in Atlanta at like 7:20. I love Sunday night games! :)

Well, I hope you have a wonderful rest of your Sunday! I know I will.

Lumpy Fat Kitty Likes Cupcakes - Day 8

Well, tonight I made cupcakes to bring to church tomorrow! Of course, being a Packer Sunday, I frosted them GREEN! REPRESENT! ;)
Lumpy was asking if he could have one of my yummy-in-my-tummy cupcakes. (Yes, in those words exactly. ;D) But, being that he is a cat, I had to say no... 
 Aaand here's the look he gave me when I told him he couldn't have one. HAHA! Nothing says "I love you" like that look right there. ;) Hehe!
 But, alas, he must move on to better things. If I had any kitty treats, I would have given him one. Aww... Sad face... :( Oh well

Well, I hope you have a GREAT rest of the night. :)

Hm, There's An Idea! - Day 7

2 down... 4 to go...
Amazingly enough I am not quite sick of them yet! ;)
 It's just the decreasing that is so annoying. I love increasing! Haha! Maybe I should just start making them triangle shaped washrags...
Hm, there's an idea!
Sugar 'n Cream...
It's the way to go...

Well, TGIF! Hope you have a WONDERFUL Friday!!
