My youngest has just turned eight and he is one of those kids who is so easy to have around (if I do say so myself). He hardly complains and is pretty much happy all the time. This year, he got what I believe was the most unusual birthday gift ever... a pineapple. You would think that this would bring complaints, but that along with the pj's and socks from his grandparents were his favorite gifts! All he wanted to do with the pineapple was cut a door and put Sponge Bob inside. He thought I could scoop out the middle like a pumpkin & Bob could move right in. It didn't quite work that way, but I'm sure he will always talk about how Uncle Bob got him a pineapple!
Halloween was the usual fun & chaos rolled into one. This year, I had an M&M, a ladybug and Ron Weasley from Harry Potter. We have tons of candy... plenty for me to pinch and not be noticed!
Let's see if we can get this blog rolling again with a give-away. I have many shawl pins to upload to the Etsy store... and I really need to get cracking! Please check out our shop and leave a comment here on this post. Next Wednesday, November 16th, I will choose a random poster to win a shawl pin of their choice. Hopefully, that will help bring this place to life again!!
Have a great week! :)

We are still here... still making buttons and shawl pins. We have just recently been placed in our own booth in Rhinebeck! I can hardle believe it. Needless to say, we are SO excited. We are working away making sure we are full to the brim next weekend!
I just sent off my email to join in the fun with Ravelry Bingo. If you are going, be sure to join in the fun. We will be donating a shawl pin as a prize also.
We would love you to stop by our booth. We will be in Building C this year. Hope to see you!

I apologize to everyone who may have seen the last post about my "sad news". I am perfectly fine... except for the stinker who hacked my Facebook page and then my email accounts... and hijacked my blog! Some people need better things to do with their time! All is back to normal now (as normal as I get anyway!).
I LOVE these Valentine tags and wish I could squeeze in some time to make them. How about you? Hop over to Jenny's blog to check them out and follow her great tutorial to make some of your own... :) Happy Valentine's Day!

I have to say how much I LOVE blogs. I love to read, I love to people watch, I love to craft & create... and the best of all of that can be found in blogs. I have really misssed this past time since starting returning to regular work back in the fall. There are so many insights and inspirations to be found out there in the big, big world. So, here's a run-down of some things I was lucky enough to stumble on today...
Another blog that I love to visit is Tara Whitney's. I feel like her posts are so honest and I love to see all her amazing photographs. Sometimes it's comforting when you feel other people's lives are as scattered as your own, and yet they are ok.
I am itching for something to knit right now, and this may just be it! It is a free pattern
BUT... there's always this too. I love nests... they are so cozy. So a FELTED nest. Now we talkin. Liv created & finished several of these. I am jealous... you should definitely go take a peek. Those of you who may know me in real life, know that I will probably start but not complete any of these projects. How sad. Maybe "complete" should be my word for 2011?
So have I bored you to tears yet? These were the highlights of my day... a nice change. :)

If only all of 2011 was going to be this yummy! Here's to another attempt at keeping up this blog. I have missed it, but was honestly feeling like life was a bit too mundane to bore everyone with it! Thank you for checking in on me and thank you to Kerri for your sweet comment!
I am a new year's baby so my year always starts with a party... what more could I ask for? Cake number one is above... Wegmans Ultimate Chocolate Cake which was followed by cake number 2... red velvet!
PS. My annual attempt at one little word continues. Maybe this year, I'll decide on one. :)
PPS. I have figured out how to post from my phone... maybe that will improve my consistency?
